I've really been enjoying TableTop! Thank you for doing it! We recently had a game shop open in town and & finally caught them open. Unfortunately, they currently only have video games - which we have several shops for. Fortunately, the gal that runs it was very interested when I told her about TableTop and how to find it. We currently have no table top gaming outlet in our area - but we do have a community college and I believe lots of potential interest. Hopefully by my sharing your show this little shop will add table top gaming and hang around longer than it would as just another video game store! Please keep your fingers crossed for us!

Is there anything from "Happiest Days...." that you aren't tired of reading? Some of my favorit things to hear you read are the stories of growing up. The first one I ever heard you read was about the joy of riding bikes with your firends in the most daring and dangerous ways that only kids can. With no thought to what might happen - which we lose to soon as adults.

Table Top will be my top pick for watching of the Geek & Sundry offerings. Hope to get some insight as to what all these games are I've been reading about you all having fun with - especially looking forward to Munchkin! Really enjoyed the Geek & Sundry trailers. By far the BEST promotion of one of the new YouTube channels. I have subsribed to several but all the others have left me vaguely confused as to what "programming" they will actually be doing. I was so impressed I even tweeted my own endorsement to my followers - woo hoo all 49 of them!

Thank you!! Thanks to you and Anne for rasing/rearing your kids into "the kind of adults we'd (all) like to have around us." I don't feel enough parents think that way. Now I must go find a kleenex - darn dust!

I remember as a kid dad would gather me and my 2 sibblings in the rec-room (OK it was the 70's stop snickering) at least one Sunday a month to play games. Monopoly was a common choice but we also played Clue, Life & Payday. The last being from his younger years and which taught money management better than Monopoly or Life ever will. Camping trips always included a dec of cards (we were ruthless at WAR!)and Password. OOO Christmas Idea!!! This year I've had a hard time coming up with gift suggesstions as I really don't need anything - surprising since we were hit with a flood last year and filled a 20yd dumpster as a result! Instead of some plastic bauble or unflattering clothes I am going to ask my hubby for the commitment of 2 game nights each month. No cable, no netbook, no internet. Just us and a few games. For my folks I think a game night each quarter would be a good gift - they say we never visit enough.

Loved the tour and the story - just need to remember to grab a beer before the next show to make it authentic. Really like this idea, even with the Paul interruption in the middle. Which reminded me that the first livestream I ever saw was Storm eating a whole Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake! This was even better than that!

Setting my twitter on high alert - only wish I could get one of those full compulation custom made CD's - I have some mad money squirreled away just in case that EVER becomes a possiblitiy somewhere besides a con. ^_^

Yeah for hanging in there! AND trying different things - I found you through your podcast and you hooked me with a reading from The Happiest Days of Our Lives. Now I'm thinking I will have to go to a Con just so I can get one of those "complete works" DVD/flash drive packages you tease us with. ;oD

Very interesting (along with the prior blog on finding the beats). It's fun to read and you still get to share your experiences real time with us without spoiling anything or leaving holes in your narrative big enough to fly a space cruiser through. Always enjoy reading about your experiences.

LOL - reading others memories of their favorite radio stations caused me to stumble back down memory lane - our local station was WACI & yes they pronounced it Wacky

I had to smile this morning when I read your tweet about dying eggs instead of watching the start of the hockey game. I too had to decide last night if I was going to watch the Blackhawks as they have not really looked like the defenders of Lord Stanley's cup. So I was rather surprised when I heard my hubby exclaim from the living room "OMG! The Blackhawks are leading 5-0 in the middle of the 2nd!!?" All I could think of was your Kings the other night leading by 4 goals & going on to lose. As I climbed into bed I offered up a little prayer "Please, God, don't let the Hawks pull a Kings" I tried to stay awake listening on my iPod - reminiscent of listening on my transistor as a kid under the sheets after lights out. But, I wasn’t successful. Here’s hoping the Kings find whatever the Hawks found in Vancouver last night!

Thank you for the checklist - now I know what items to put on my Christmas list for my hubby - last yr I gave him links to several items on one website and he gotthem all plus he picked out a BAZINGA hoodie for me all on his own (yes he's a keeper). Now, where's the link for "The Complete Works of Me, Wil Wheaton (being an incomplete collection of the audio, video, and textual works of me, Wil Wheaton)".

Count me in - I'd even pester my hubby to let me use his paypal if necessary! Will these also have the same packaging?

If it was at all possible to teleport out to ECCC on such short notice I'd be there (never mind it isn't even remotely possible -meh) just for the opportunity to own such an awesome collection! Being landlocked in the middle of the country has limited my opportunites for obtaining your chapbooks and such. Your audio books tho are a MUST! Just like having someone else in the car! On the very very very slight chance that there would be any unclaimed after the con you may count me amongst the minions that would <3 to own a copy. edited to say - if these go over as well as I imagine they will - the zip would be a most awesomely acceptable substitute

OH WOW - hadn't thought of Highlights for several years. Grandma always got us a subscription. There were 3 of us so no one was allowed to write in it. My other Grandma had a stack of Jack and Jill magazines that had been my mothers that we loved to look through too - those had stories in them as I recall.

I too got what you were saying in those < 140 characters. Anyone who didn't, didn't read them all. You did qualify which part of the population you were directing your comment to - those that had been given ample opportunity to better themselves and squandered it & still expected the world to hand everything to them. Not those that have worked as hard as they can for everything they've ever gotten. Sometimes those things have to be said and you do a great job of it. Keep up the good work Old Man (hee hee - that's fun to say to a youngster like you)

Loved the BevMo trip - I can sooo see my hubby siding w/ Anne since I'm the beer snob. Glad you could relate most of this in your blog *sighs whistfully*

2 words of advice from someone who's school mascot was the Pretzel: Toaster Oven. Makes for a much better experience. While we're on the subject of pretzels my best friend once asked a rival the following " During homecoming we sell Pretzels in the hall. Do you sell Trojans?" She had no clue *facepalm* PS glad to read you like mustard w/ your pretzels - it's really the only way.

Thank you for giving us some context. After you posting with the .@ I was a bit confused reading just one side. You truly are "one of us". You game, love to talk about it to anyone who will listen, love your family & life in general - and just like us you occasionally go a bit overboard. So, welcome the the WBC (that's the Wet Butt Club cuz none of us walks on water). I take it as an example of you showing just how passionate you really are about gaming. If you didn't consider yourself an advocate would it really have bugged you? Probably not.
