Like I said yesterday on twitter, this is the bonus. This is the prize in your crackerjacks. This kid will always surprise you.

I signed up around the same time you did, and twitter has become such a big part of my life it's almost scary. I feel like I have come to know so many people that I would never have a chance IRL and have even found new software vendors and professional contacts through twitter. You are right though, if the twitter feed is purely links or selling something-even if it is something I use and need-they are immediately unfollowed and blocked, because I like people who contribute to the conversation. Just my feeling. And I am with you as well on the let-us-pay-you bandwagon. These damn kids today want everything for free.

oh, how awful. How will you ever survive?

And yes, Wil, I am still waiting anxiously for the audio version of Dancing Barefoot. In case you forgot.

Hmmm, that reminds me! I need to listen to my audio JAG again. It's a tax-season tradition, you know. This year I can even add Happiest Days to the mix. People, if you don't have these you need them. Be sure to listen to the extra fun stuff with Wil and David Lawrence. I kind of have a crush on Mr. Lawrence's voice (although it added a weird dimension to his character on Heroes-because I love that voice but he played such an excellent creep).

Speaking of gaming things for charity, Extra Life is this Saturday, are you doing anything with that? My son and his friends are gearing up for a 24-hour marathon of fundraising by doing something that they are always doing anyway! https://waystogive.texaschildrens.org/netcommunity/pheonixdown if anyone is interested in donating. And yes, I know he spelled Phoenix wrong, it was one of those services where once you set up the URL they couldn't change it. I used it as a good example of WHY we proofread things before we hit send.

Since we all know you are very funny, this should be excellent and I can't wait to see it. You also have managed to solve the first mystery, that of the missing Pauly, who has not updated his blog in ages. Obviously, he's been busy, apparently granting wishes like some odd fairy godfather.

I read somewhere in a book a really awesome guy said something like "I always listen to my wife because she is always right".... oh wait, that was you. and I second the car charger comment, although I just realized I don't own one either. Keeping my fingers crossed for second chances for you.

Above our community we have a similar ruin, the old Malan's Basin resort that once stood near Malan's peak. There is a beautiful hike up to the old grounds and some spectacular views. I am always struck by the fact that less than a century ago this was a popular destination, and now it is just gone. What do we have now that will end up that way?

Silly dogs. They were just trying to call it to come play, I am sure. It's a big frisbee after all!

That was the first thing I thought this morning when I saw it, was that this was going to snowball, and Wil is going to get hit with it. Here's to ducking. It's nice to know so many people want it to happen, though.

I am very happy to buy the fancy edition from Subterranean. I have been holding out for the audiobook but I had planned to buy the dead-tree version as well. This will go well together and make a nifty Christmas present for myself.

I like your "I voted" sticker better, ours are kind of ugly. I went at 1045, had to drive back near my house, which took 10 minutes, but there was no line. I asked the poll workers where everyone was and they said they really hadn't been busy all day but a lot of people from our area early voted last week. I went to the little machine, slid in the card and did the touch screen thing. It was a little funky on the Attorney General category, the screen didn't want to pick up the square I was marking, but it did eventually. We have the machines that at the end, it prints a paper receipt in a little window before you officially cast your vote, and you can cancel it after it prints if it looks like you got something wrong. I like that. Of course, I voted for Obama and I live in Utah so it was pretty much pointless, but it made me feel good and that's what matters.

Do you remember how disgusted and depressed you were when they played that little intro and then it turned out to be some stupid news thing or something for our parents? I remember practically crying one time because I was just sure a cartoon was coming on and it was some political special.

Every year, after a grueling tax season our firm gives us each a free "personal day" to be used in the month of May. This year, I didn't tell my family I didn't have to go to work that day. I went to the store, bought a book I'd always wanted to read, drove to the local park, laid down on a blanket and read all day. It was the most awesome day ever!

Seth Green is awesome, last year my son's high school band was doing a performance in California and a bunch of them were somewhere and ran into him. He was awesome to them, taking pictures and just talking with them for a while.
