I'm also curious why you finally decided to get a Facebook page. Sorry if I missed you talking about this before here on your blog or on Twitter.

Being about three weeks older than you, I really enjoy your tales of childhood gaming Ooohing and Ahhing, like the Shakey's Pizza story you did last year. Also, ones about gaming with Anne are pretty hilarious as my husband is a big gamer and I'm only in it for the beer. :o)

My husband was there all three days, soaking it all in, more or less. He even got a friend to stand in line with him to get into the Paramount to see the D&D action. He claims, it was the best wait ever. :o) Your panel was at my mom's work, and she got to see and hear your panel, which was a highlight for her. She also hopes you weren't creeped out by the snack basket she provided to your hotel room. She's a convention servies manager, PAX and ECCC are two conventions she works every year, which both include you and thus she's become a big fan over the years. Anyhoo, no harm, no foul, just Guinness and snacks. What what!

As always, welcome back to Seattle and PAX! I'll be a PAX widow this year, but fear not! My mom (Leslie McKenzie) and I have talked about your welcome basket for your hotel room in copious details, and we hope you like pistachios. Also, thanks again for being in EUREKA! I shall refrain from whinging about season 5 being its last season. Just so glad you're apart of it. And finally, the family and I have caught up through season 4 of THE GUILD, and man! Did your scenes look too damn fun to film. Seriously, how much awesome was that? Much respect and appreciation, Jaz

Hiya Wil, Thanks for always making time to come up to our little hamlet on the water and mingle with us mortals. Seriously though, could you be any more easy to talk to and relate to? Of course, you being a mere three weeks younger than me probably helps. Your story about the arcade at Shakey's hit home with me. We had those in Tucson, where I grew up. I remember the arcade by the movie theatre called The Gold Mine and I wanted to live there, between the Joust and Dragon's Lair. Anyhoo, thanks for being so approachable and normal. Also, hope you don't get tired of receiving awesome amenity baskets when you stay at a certain Seattle hotel. Don't forget to play that quarter, Wil. Play it well. See ya next year!

Well-written, Wil. Thanks for that. I recall Static Shock coming on Saturday mornings and I really liked it, so much so I made a point to watch it. Yes, an adult purposely watching Saturday morning cartoons doesn't get one too many dates, any at all really, but it was always time well spent. He was deeply talented, and you were fortunate to work with him.

Finally! you announce coming to ECCC! My mom's in hospitality and is working with the guys putting on ECCC. She had a meeting last week and wanted to know from me what she should follow up with them about. I told her they need to bring in Robert Kirkman, figure out when James Marsters Friday panel is (at the time, the schedule had it at 3pm but the detail had it listed at 4pm), and when in the GD hell is Wil Wheaton going to be on the program list. Later that night I got, "Kirkman: hopefully next year; Marsters: now at 5pm; The Wheat is at 4pm!" Wheeeeeee! Okay, my mom didn't refer to you as The Wheat. I just did that now, but you know, I'm liking it. Might have you sign my Toy Soldiers DVD with that. Hehheh. Also note to self: start working on your amenties basket of Epic Awesome. Guinness, bacon popcorn...

My daughter's preschool/child care in the Pike Place Market would get donated CSA bags every other week. As a favorite of the office ladies, my family and I would get one each time. Such a wonderful treat, expecially getting items you wouldn't normal eye in the produce dept. It certainly renewed my interest in greens of all sorts: collard mustard, chard, etc. I'm going to explore the financial opportunity with my husband and maybe we can join CSA next year. Thanks for this, Jen.

Great recommendations. I've only ever eaten at Cafe Campagne once but it still stick swith me as one of the most memorable breakfasts. I'd suggest dim sum from Jade Garden in the Internation District, kickass delit sammies from Tat's Deli in Pioneer Square, and midday sweet treat from Grand Central Bakery, also in Pioneer Square. I adore Hattie's Hat, in Ballard. Dive? Yes. Delicious and delightful? YES! They've got a spinach casserole that's wicked tasty, and included on their happy hour menu.

You are so absolutely right about oven temps. Thanks for the reminder to pick up a good oven thermometer. You should do a post about those awesome homemade ginormous Oreo-type cookies. :o)

Finally! I'm not one to be all "I know what's right so shut the f**k up!" Well, actually I am, but anyhoo! I knew from day one watching Eureka that you'd be a choice actor to have on that show and as a part of that world (not to get all Aladdin/Disney on you). I'm really looking forward to this Friday's episode, but I'm always looking forward to Eureka. It is such a wonderfully nerdy, techy soup of humor and smarts. Yay!

Nice floor! And can you believe some people would still have pulled out all that lovely parquet flooring? Good work to both you and Anne. If you skip Voodoo Donuts, maybe a burlesque show would fit into your schedule? I hear Portland has some neato ones. I also need to take your advice about taking the train from Seattle to Portland. How freakin' economical is that?! *slaps forehead*
