Wow! (I'm always a little worried that I was the person who left the comment that broke wwdn).

I hope you have fun. Sadly, I suspect my move to San Jose means no more PAX Prime for me. On the other hand, it probably also means SDCC is within reach. Do you ever come to conventions in San Jose?

I'll take a stab at this... It is your childhood fantasy to be the James Bond villain instead of James Bond. These roles bring out childlike joy in you and that makes the characters oh so entertaining for us.

The pictures you posted of the dogs interacting were so adorable. And now is the time where I try to guess the dog's name. I'm going to go with... Phineas

You look like the parent of the red-headed child.

Bah! Kids today... I'm my day we'd have given up an arm and possibly a leg to go into space. Of course, NASA and the USAF would have disqualified you from being an astronaut if you were missing limbs, but we'd have done it anyway because we were kids and tended to be shortsighted (not near-sighted -- which will also get you off the launch list -- despite the fact that micro gravity tends to make your eyes go bad anyway). Hey you space kids, get off my lawn!!! ... What's that you say? ... Oh, right. Nevermind.

Congratulations, Wil. That is so cool. One of my favorite pictures is me standing in front of the sign for the spacecraft assembly building. Sadly, I hear JPL is not the place it once was.

I've rejected about fifteen funny things to say in my head because none of them add anything. I think that means this is a perfect video. Well done, sirs.

When I found the 4th Doctor reference in the response, I was unable to resist.

*whisper* It's "Doctor" not "Dr.". It is a name, not a title. (why are we whispering?)

"Number three, I'm standing on the shoulders of Chris Hardwick, which is always a nice place to be -- especially after he just had shoulder surgery." FTFY.

Whoa! Yes, I know that has been said, but it bears repeating. Wil coming out of exile... Winter is coming.

I had this master plan that your would love "The 13 Clocks" and talk about it with Neil Gaiman and then you and he would hatch a plan for you to do an audiobook version of it. Any chance my plan has come to fruition?

My stress dreams usually involve college. Either there is some afternoon class that I keep forgetting to go to, or it is the end of the semester and I realize I haven't gone to class at all. Recently I had a stress dream about going to Disneyland with my wife, daughter and mother and my wife and mother constantly insisting on doing tasks that would keep us from getting to the park. I've had that dream about three times now. Then there was that one stress dream I had maybe 10 years ago where I was at your birthday party and I had to tell your friends that I only knew you from posting on your blog and they'd look at me with scorn and derision. I'm pretty sure I've had non-stress dreams about being in the Star Trek universe. It is kind of sad to me that you'll probably never have a dream like that.

I'm happy you got to experience that. I also think it is very cool that they put you center stage with Patrick and Jonathan.

I see you chose the Lhite version.

You aren't autographing the Cool Whip in the grocery aisle again, are you?

I didn't get a picture, but I did see Darth Vader on a unicycle playing the bagpipes. I saw you early on Friday and saw you still meeting and greeting nearly five hours later. I have no idea how you kept that up all weekend. That's what she said. In unrelated news, I did meet Anne on Sunday just as I was giving up on meeting her. Hi Anne. Hope you both had fun this weekend. I did.
