You and Anne sound like you have a great relationship. My husband and I have been together for over 25 years, and while I am the "geek" of the two, we have noticed over the years that we have taken on different aspects of each other. He still does not understand how I can watch 14 + hours of Firefly, or the entire Star Wars franchise at one sitting, but someday maybe..... And as far as the insurance company - I just got my flood insurance bill - First glance? only went up $7 woo hoo - wait NOOO - My deductible just went up $1500 -- I am right there with you. Wil - as always, thanks for sharing your weekend!!

"my treatmeant of homosexuals should be no different that how I treat anyone- the way I'd want to be treated. Friendship, respect, dignity" ......... "Right or wrong, I have no situation where hatred, violence, disdain, or disrespect is going to be the answer to the question of how I'd like to be treated" Those two comments in your post jumped out at me as such simple, straightforward ways of looking at, and dealing with others. Now,I am in no way, shape or form a conservative Christian, however,I was raised on the Golden Rule -Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Mom's version) What a kinder, more peaceful world this would be if people stopped for a second, and thought,"would I want someone to do what I am about to do, to me?" I was just up here reading some of the comments since this was first posted, and I agree with you on the civility of the posts as well. This is a hot button topic to be sure, and everyone has stated their opinions with dignity, eloquence, and not one bit of bickering. Very impressive!! I am quite grateful to have found this community. Now I am off to make more tea - Earl Grey - Hot :0)

Wil, Thank you for posting this - the more we start dialogues, and get the absurdities of prejudice because of race, sexual preference, and beliefs out in the open, the quicker we can break down some of these invisible barriers to enable people to have safe and happy lives as themselves. MOZ

Thanks All - will have to keep an eye out for that one. Previews looked interesting and love Roald Dahl. Think a 5 year old will get it?

I am in total agreement, just got home from watching the 5 and 2 year old nieces and this was such a great read to end the day. I love this blog, the link is on my homepage now so that I can catch the new posts as soon as they happen.

I have to admit that episode of Criminal Minds totally freaked me out. I had to go online and "verify" that was really you playing Floyd. It was an amazing performance, creepy, but amazing.

Little late to the party, but me too. Met the spousal unit of 25 years playing D&D, and learned a very valuable lesson about pissing off the DM!! - Picture 15th level Ranger walking around with her Ray Bans duct taped to her head because she was talking to someone while the DM was rolling and he chopped off her nose, and when she protested he rolled and took both her ears. She shut up and rolled for duct tape from her bag of holding and ran around that way for 4 more games. And they were such nice pointy elf ears too - LOL

Hate it when this happens - After Sunday morning's first coffee bitching, I had no intentions of watching the Oscars, and certainly not any of the red carpet crap (which I didn't), but..... got home from watching the girls, and the spousal unit was watching what else? The Oscars. I walked in the door to Jeff Bridges introducing a Coen Brothers film. Now I have been a fan of Jeff Bridges since Tron, and fell madly in love with the Dude. And then to find out he got best actor the next morning. Well hell, ya gotta love that !!... Continue reading

I cannot WAIT for tonight and tomorrow to be over - I am so sick of hearing about the Oscars, the swag parties, the preparations. You know what? If there is intelligent life out there --- they have probably been here already, took one good look at us, and went on their merry way. In this day and age, in light of natural disasters, recession, people without jobs, health care, and a way to feed themselves and their children, seeing all of this crap going on in Holly-weird CA is embarrassing. How much money is being WASTED for a bunch... Continue reading

Today would have been my daughter's 32nd birthday. In light of the events of the last week, it has struck me exceptionally hard today. I prayed that they would find Andrew Koenig alive and holed up somewhere, but when I read that he had given away some of his possessions, I knew. I knew deep down in my gut that he was already lost. Watching his parents in the news conference broke my heart. My daughter would be 32 if she had not taken her own life 15 years ago. She was 17 years old. She was probably bi-polar, but...

Alas Mimi it is the little humanoid - unfortunately once they are released from the mothership they will still find ways of draining brain cells from you - so your best bet is to hide some away now, and spring them on the little alien when they least expect it. HA!! :0) Congratulations!!!

As a recent discoverer of both this blog and your podcasts, this has been a great read, and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all. I am on year 25 of being married to my best friend who I actually met while playing D&D, and you are correct sir.....being married to your best friend most certainly RULES!! Congratulations and may you have many many more. Happy New Year Wil Wheaton - I look forward to more of your work in the coming months, and thank you for putting it out there!! MOZ
