So, does that mean people with the name Richard have to change it for that one day each year? Oh, wait.........

Ah.... Isn't an evil twin also a nemesis? Anyway; frigg'n sharks with lazers. Oh, and the latest edition of Highlights and - darn it all - only a pen handy.

I. AM. OFFENDED!!!!!!!!!!!! Such language. You should be ashamed of yourself, young man, using such foul words. Where's that bar of soap? I know it's around here somewhere. Oh Fuck!!! Wait..... Did I type that out loud?

Kinda, but not exactly, off topic. I bought Hunter via Google. However, it's been over a month, and despite my having downloaded and read the story, the Google charges have yet to clear my bank. You are getting your money from Google? Right? Because, as much as every dollar counts in my life today, I wanted in some way to pay you back for your blogging and the inspiration it has given me. Well, and to make up for acting like such a fan boy at times. Oh, and to make up for marking the Highlight magazines in the doctor's office. Especially the one yesterday. Talk about reliving my childhood. Errr. Errr, Errr, Oh, alright. So I never really grew out of my childhood.

If my mom gives me a pen, can I mark up my copy all I want?

I remember the excitement I felt the first time I actually got hold of one at my doctor's office that wasn't marked up. All my mom had was a pen. What a blast I had marking off the pictures.

First of all, you look sharp in the suit. Second, if they every remake Casablanca, you're a shoe in for the Peter Lorre part!

First, congrats on the success of your fiction writing. As to the beard: when are you returning to your leading role in CSI? Oh, wait. Your last name is Wheaton, not Peterson........

As he smiles contently, Wil Wheaton notes with serene contentment that Tribbles have nothing on Smurfs.

When you're on the set, be on the set. Pay attention to everything that's going on around you, because you will constantly be presented with opportunities to learn about and perfect your craft. If you're lucky like me and get to work with some of the best in the business, you're learning from some of the best in the business! Right on! Call it "Zen and the Art of Acting."

Okay, I think I've amused myself just enough to recover the mana I needed to cast Keep Writing Keynote, so I'm going to get back to it before They're All Going To Laugh At You has its next turn. Too late. Laughing already. Thankfully, it is with you, not at you. Great zen post. Love it.

One of the reasons Charo and Carol Burnett had such lasting careers was their willingness to mock themselves.

Having grown up with Charo in the 70s, I can say with total certainty that the life changing youtube you need to watch is here: http://www.rooksrant.com/2010/02/cuchi-cuchi-cu.html And yes, of course Carol Burnett is also in it.

In fact, you're probably better off spending your money on something else, and just watching the video over and over again, until you feel the tingling warmth of insanity spreading across your delicious brain. Sorry, it's about 45 years too late to prevent insanity.

I had one, years ago. In fact, probably about 10 years ago. They just called it something else at the time. And just like Popular Mechanics said, inconsistent at best with its chopping. And a pain to clean, despite what they say on the ad.

Wow. That pic of Brittney Murphy as an air of Meg Ryan in her early days.

OT! My my. You must have found the cure. It is Talk Like A Pirate Day, and not a post about it from you. There is hope for a solution!

Totally off topic, but it's 3/14. You know what day it is?! It's π Day! What I didn't know, (because I've fallen behind on my geek lessons) is that it's also Einstein's Birthday. The coincidence is just too thick on that one. Now, in the past, it seems you had a post about π day, so I'm thinking you must be in Nirvana over the audition. Hope things turned out well.
