Well, hello, Wheaton family! I am very happy to finally "meet" your sons after all these years. Thank you for sharing that with us.

W00t! Awesome news about season 4. I was just recently thinking that I was going through Guild withdrawal. Good to know that I can get my fix of Season 3 AND look forward to season 4.

Awesome! Congrats on finishing your speech! As a side note, I thought the WW_AHs were a funky way of writing out the sound effect that you hear in cartoons when a bad joke is told: "Wah, wah, wah, waahhhh"

Awesome. Hope you feel better soon!

Hee! That's great! Like the person a few posts up said, it looks like one of those books where you can combine different heads with different bodies and feet. Now all you need is a picture with duck feet or something at the bottom.

Love the concept and the nod to the, um, Space Jellyfish Aliens. Not my thing, aesthetic-wise, but I'm sure as hell going to be buying one!

As far as I'm concerned, pets are adopted children and losing them is no less painful than losing a human child. I never knew Ferris in person, but she was a familiar part of this "family" in your little corner of cyberspace, and let's just say that I need to replace my tissue box after reading your last two posts. I will give you a virtual *hug* and know that I hugged my own furbabies extra long today.

Wil, I am so sorry. Ferris was truly an awesome dog. I always loved reading about those little moments you shared with her. My sympathies go out to you and your family.

I remember thinking that maybe, in those boxes, was a letter from a girl who might want to go to the movies with me. Dude! If I'd known that, I would have written you that fan letter that I never worked up the courage to write. It's just that you were SO much older than I was...by a whole 2 years! In all seriousness, though, this has to be one of my favorite posts of yours, ever. When I get nostalgic over my childhood memories of the 80s, you are always there because of your work in two of the shows/movies that defined important moments in my life. It's strange, yet really cool, to be able to share in your nostalgia of the same things. I miss River Phoenix and all of his art that he never had the chance to share with us. But it's really nice to see the rest of you have found your own stride in your own ways. Thank you for giving us our own "Stand By Me" experience through your blog. What you do has always brought me happiness. I'm glad you were a part of my childhood and adolescence, and I'm even more glad that Wil the writer (as well as the many other things you do) is a part of my adulthood.

AWESOME!!! (And "awesome" is, like, even better than "hawsome" because it's retro-hawsome) Happy Birthday, Anne!

My inner fangirl is squealing over that picture. You, Felicia Day, Neil Gaiman, and AFP!! Awesome! Thanks for sharing that. And thanks for sharing your Comic Con story. For those of us who can't get away to be there, it's great to hear all the little behind-the-scenes stories. What an amazing feeling it must have been to get that kind of reception, and I wish I had been there to see it. And speaking of Neil Gaiman and AFP, one of my favorite perfume oil companies, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com) has been working with them to raise money for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund by putting out scents inspired by the characters in Gaiman's works. Soon they'll be releasing a line of scents corresponding to AFP's new book, "Who Killed Amanda Palmer?" I mean, who wouldn't want scents called, "Cupcake Splatter Pattern Analysis" and "Unfortunate Shopping Cart Incident." I know that perfume oils sound like more of a "female thing," but they have many masculine/unisex scents, too, and it's just fun to check out for the creativity.

My most embarrassing moment with a celebrity was when I was working in the store Hold Everything, back in '91 or so. I had a guy walk in with a HUGE bag of VHS movies. I answered questions about some of our products, and he ended up buying a remote control organizer. As I was ringing him up, I was chit-chatting with him and commenting on all the movies he had and how he must be a movie lover. He responded that he was writing a screenplay and the movies were for his research. Naive as I was, I started blabbing about how I had some friends who were trying to be screenwriters, how hard it was to make it in The Business, and I wished him lots of luck on his screenplay. Then he handed me his credit card. It was Wes Craven. As my face turned a deep crimson color, I think I muttered something like, "Well...guess you don't really need my luck." He was amused. (I'm not 100% sure, but I think I remember seeing some horror movie titles in the stash o' videos he had, so I'm thinking the screenplay for which he was doing research was "Scream")

R.I.P. Freddy Snowpants :(. I'm so sorry for the loss of your family's loved one. I just got back from the vet's just a few minutes ago, and I am still in a daze from the news that they found "a mass" in my cat's lungs. So I think the phrase, "I feel your pain," is appropriate here.

Great interview, and good answers to the questions (especially the physics question and the "book to the head" thing). Teeth shmeeth. With a great smile like that, you should just smile more.

Britney Spears fans know how to use computers? ;) C'mon, Wil. You know you want to win this. Have faith in your posse.

So all of this is entirely over my head, not having played D&D before (*ducks rotten tomatoes*), but a huge congrats to you . I know enough to know that this is a big deal. And I can't wait to hear about the other projects in the works.

Wil, this is your art, and I KNOW you wouldn't put something like this out without thinking (and overthinking, I'm sure) about whether this would provide your fans with something new and special. I trust you, and when you say it'll be worth it, I know it will be. Even though I've got the paperback and one of the 300 (w00t! #21 in da house! -- sorry I never took the opportunity to w00t about my 300 status), I will proudly add the new edition to my collection. Reading the new stuff will be the icing on the cake, but really I do this because I want to support one of my favorite artists. And Andrew, see if you can talk Wil into calling it "Happiester Days of Our Lives." That would be kinda awesome, especially if it was done so that the title has a hand-written "er" added to the end of "Happiest." In crayon, of course.

YES! Oh how I miss that intro. I got that same feeling of being a 6-year-old waiting for the special presentation when I saw that. And speaking of special presentations, I LOVED your Criminal Minds episode! AWESOME performance. I didn't see a reminder here, so maybe it hasn't aired in the U.S. yet?

"Aliens" quotes FTW! Sorry you're not feeling well. Hopefully this one-two medication punch will make you feel mostly like yourself again... ...mostly.
