As usual, I wasn't home to catch it. For various reasons, I was unable to record it. This makes for a Sad Carol. :(

I don't think you're projecting, Wil. Riley knows something's wrong. His buddy Ferris has been gone for several days and one of his humans is very, very sad. I've no doubt that he's connected the two events. I also know that you're right - he brought you the things that bring him happiness, hoping it might help. Even if animals don't possess the complicated thought processes that humans have, they know emotions. I agree with zenfishing. Go to Nolan. Being there for your grief may also help him with his. You need each other now. I'm glad for you that Anne will be back today. *hugs*

Wil, I am so sorry. I believe that pets are family and have gone through the loss you're going through now. Three years ago my eldest cat Noel died without warning and in the following weeks I would find myself bursting into tears without warning. I'd had him for thirteen years, since he was a tiny kitten who was all ears and no tail. He was definitely "my boy." Please accept my deepest sympathies, Wil.

Happy birthday, Wil! You're just a young'un. "Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government"

I am seriously sad that I missed this in real time, but absurdly pleased that you are a Real Genius fan. Still, Wil - and I am only saying that because I care - there's a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.

I too reside in that part of the Venn Diagram. My love for this is truly bottomless. Thank you, Wil!

I am slightly older than a certain age (I was 21 when this was originally released) and, it pains me to say, loved this song and video in the original versions. Though this version is good too. Favorite part? The voiceovers during the instrumental part. High-larious.

Is it wrong that I just want to make out with Wil's Twitter feed, like, all the time? If that's wrong, tinypants, then I don't want to be right. Because I want to marry Wil's Twitter feed and have its babies, I love it so. I must be really, really wrong...

That is simultaneously one of the best and scariest things I have ever seen. It is so awesomely evil that it must have a PhD in Awesome Evil. Though I am a little disappointed, because the "It Has Begun" entry was written on my birthday. *sigh* No Awesome Scalzi Evilness for me! Feel better soon, Wil, m'k? And congrats on being the recipient of such Magnificently Awesome Evil.

Wow, Wil. Just wow. My Rocky Deflowering was somewhat less dramatic than yours. It was during my senior year of high school *mumble mumble* years ago with a tiny audience at the Topanga Theatre (where I also went on my first date the previous year [Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - honest]). The tiny audience must have all been virgins except for my friends (who were theater geeks one and all). *sigh* A few years later I had seen RHPS several times at that Van Nuys theater with my at-the-time-boyfriend - it was great to finally see it the way G-d meant it to be seen - with toast and flying toilet paper. I've since wanted to go dressed as Magenta. (BTW, loved that Cafe 50s, too - it was the site of another first date - with aforementioned at-the-time-boyfriend. Thanks for bringing back the memories, Wil.) Oh, and petition is duly signed.

Mad Monk, that Maya Angelou poem is gorgeous. And absolutely right. I doff my hat to the memories of Bob Justman, Alexander Courage and Joseph Pevney. Were it not for them and their marvelous work, I might not be the Trekkie that I am today. RIP, gentlemen.

Todd, mid-40s ain't baby boomer - it's the upper edge of Generation X (which is where I fall, though slightly younger). But I do think it has something to do with a sense of entitlement that far too many people seem to have, coupled with the belief that behavior which might gotten them a pass when they were younger (and everyone was as young and stupid as they were) is still cute - in their eyes, at least. Plus people of a certain age who are still trying to hang onto their sadly gone youths will drink as if they're still 19 and their body chemistry hasn't changed in the intervening years. Which, as this 42 year old can attest, is definitely not the case. Wil, I haven't been to the Bowl in a long time, but sure there's got to be some sort of usher type person in the $60/$70 seat areas that can kick out assholes like that. I'd sure hunt one down. But, as I've gotten older, my patience for such ass-hattery has completely disappeared. At least you got to watch Elvis Costello uninterrupted. I mean, Elvis and Sting singing "Alison"? As that was my ringtone for three years, you can imagine how nuts I would have gone over that. And a Theremin! I love Theremins! *sigh*

I'm having Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Baked Beans, Twitter and Twitter. "Could I have that, but without the Twitter, please?" "Well, it wouldn't be Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Baked Beans, Twitter and Twitter, now, would it?!" Personally, I loves me some Twitter. Almost as much as I loves me a nice MLT, a mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky, I love that.

You can't imagine how much I wish I could go, especially considering how inexpensive it is. Envy, thy name is Carol.
