That was too damn entertaining. At first I had "Ride like the Wind" in my head. I am glad it was not just new words over old music. This was wayyy better.

I enjoyed nearly everything that we read in high school. I am something of an empath so the really good characters that didn't have to spell everything out were awesome. I think that is what I liked best about parts of Moby Dick. And Animal Farm. But I often found myself so immersed in my own reading of it that I could never see what the teacher wanted. Mr. Trapp finally tripped me up with Shakespeare though... Much Ado About Nothing and Loves Labours Lost were the only ones I ever got. They were simple to divine the motives without all the young and the restless plotting for power. The best part of reading those things as an adult is that your own experience let's you unveil another level of meaning. Although the case in animal farm is that I am always going to be the horse (idealistic with a grand work ethic) and now instead of crying my eyes out I get pissed off. Oh and I can't NOT hear Patrick Stewart's voice reminding me that "Some are more equal than others". Creepy. But really the testing requirements are at fault. Not the teachers. It isn't the same as an art appreciation class in which you would get to EXPLORE those strange new/old worlds. And some teachers are going to care more about their quotas and percentages than others. It will be a rare teacher who can share their passion and still get us to understand the approved meanings... And rarer still the teacher who through literature can help us find out barbaric yawp.

Wil, this is completely off topic. Since there are so few comments posted I am sure you will see this. Mr. Tololo has passed. For those of us who might have missed it, would you repost your Paul and Storm interpretation? And Jeff... I really wish more GMs would monitor what their minions do in the name of their company. I don't use your services but if I were in the market for them, your interaction here on this topic would be a HUGE factor in going with this company. Too many people in your shoes just coast and let someone else do the baby sitting while the band is playing on the deck of a sinking ship.

What about something reprised from Radio Free Burrito? I really miss those. And there were a lot of great things in there. Don't know how that would translate to the stage. Also something about meeting heroes. I think in the whole Nate won't Participate backlash it is important to remind people that he (and you) is people too. I love the whole stammering idiot self talk that you put down on paper. Kinda like the talks you have with the cats... we've all been there.

Well the good news is that should this cancellation inspire any number of persons to proclaim themsleves a nemesis you have several cards in your hand that will trump their Enchanted Bunnies. AND a cat with dice mojo for those saving rolls & Steve knows how many lives left. Besides REDACTED AND VERY SECRET stuff covers a multitude of sins of varying degrees. Congrats!

I enjoyed the soft shoe, while I half expected you to bust into a Tololololol thing, the dancing was nice to watch whilst mopping up Davy Jones tears. Thank you.

Oh Whew! For a minute there I was kinda worried that the lurking/stalking masses had birthed a really skilled and thus reallllly creepy impersonator. Glad you have joined us. Now my friends won't actually have to leave the comfort of the Farm/Castle/Cityville [eyeroll] to read a post I've recommended, though no one has ever been sorry for it... especially that Gingerbread awesome you let us know about. [sadface] can you believe we now live in an age in which clicking a link is too much "bother"? I feel the need for a security blanket & a fruit batty hug.

Ummm.... appropo of not much here except that this post is reposted somewhere else, I have one question: didn't you swear to Steve the Fruit Bat you'd never do facebook? If that isn't your account it's a damn good and pretty respectful fan edition. From the moustachioed fez live profile pic to remarks about Seamus being cold... if its you great... cause that means my whole world is only one espresso and mouse click away from me in the morning. If it's not you then at least you know about this guy, ya know.

Rachel Blackman... that is BRILLIANT! I was telling my brother about the idea and how Awesome it would be to have a gaming pub. He's not a gamer perse but he did agree that the arcade games experience can always be improved with beer. Dwarven Alehouse might be limiting and make the Berzerkers and Elves feel unwelcome. And considering how much Kenders enjoy bugging the jeebus out of Dwarves I would think the dwarves would want to keep it on the down low anyway :D

moonpie Perhaps... because we can not resist making Uncle Willie (shakespeare) roll in his grave... there might be a "Parrish the Thought"?

OMG! You may get me to imbibe yet.... seriously? you are buds with Grant Imahara? Can you get more awesome?! seriously: a D&D tavern. it must be done. And a New Hampshire Ale of the Darkmagic variety.... or a Darkmagic Ale of the New Hamphsire variety... something. of course it might be a bit on the nose but Aeofel does have the word ALE in it... just sayin.

I did not see the episode. My brother who got wore out on Sci-fi by my Type A/OCD fangirl self decades ago watched it though. I did not know he even knew how to find Syfy Channel. at any rate he came upstairs and said all excited like "Dude... you will never guess who I saw on Eureka." ME: [big sister duh voice] "Dude,Wil Wheaton." HIM: "Uh... [disappointment set in *]how did you know?" ME: "Uh... you watch Eureka?" HIM: "Well... uh... ya know he looks nothing like that kid in the sweater." ME: "I know. He looks like you now." Me/HIM: [in Fargo voice] "Creepy" And then I told him all the episodes you were in on the shows he watches. "Dude! That was him?" Congrats. You are no longer "the boy Wesley". And I do not know if I feel like my Sci-fi kingdom is being encroached upon or the borders of said kingdom are porous enough to allow immigration... have to see how this goes. But he's also watching SG-1. Which I think was a Killer Bunny thing and not so much the "oh wow its MacGyver" thing. *we often play a game where he sees how long it takes for me to guess the 6th degree of whatever is top of mind in his head at random moments. I can scare the jebus out of him... and I like it that way. It's the most malevoent big sister thing I can do. :) BTW: You sir need either an entourage to seperate the Wheaton from the riff-raff or a working phaser... though that little gizmo Claudia cooked up for the Warehouse would be nice....

Yes... a cat nap. (see Teh Dede above) Jaguars seem to be a theme. Been working on my take of mayan glyphs to commemorate a friend who is moving on to a greener economic outlook... he hopes. (I question the optimism but refuse to rain on his parade.) At any rate his glyph is a Smoking Jaguar, kinda a pun on the Smoking Frog... which I guess is more a statement on how confusing mayan language is and is rather an inside archaeology joke... the long and the short of it is that our little domestic friends are much like their feral jungle cousins. They look all calm and peaceful for a huge chunk of the day to lull you into a false sense of cohabitation... just so they can biff you in the head* when you aren't looking. Or chew you to bits. *or some other aggressive action with a garaunteed d20 for initiative.

The value of a quarter indeed. I don't know who stuck them in grown up bodies and sucked out their souls, but I feel bad for them. Use the crappy torn dollars in vending machines. Quarters are silver tickets to Otherplace and Elsewhere.

And MJ's Bad wasn't too terrible a CD even though it wasn't as good as thriller. The grocery store is the only place in my little Northern Michigan town that plays 80s music. for some reason the Classic station and the best ofs seemed to have gotten stuck on everything prior to 1079. You have to beg them to play something 80s hip.

A rousing game of killer bunnies is a rousing game of killer bunnies, Freud. Oddly... it has superceded that which you euphemised in order of importance. I'm sure that should be rectified. But not sure that it will be rectified. somebody killed 10 of my bunnies right before nabbing the last carrot and I owe that special someone a "game over Moonpie" just as soon as I design my special blank card and dig my "How We Roll' shirt out of the summer clothes bin to increase my saving roll karma. He is hassenpfeffer! 9my german is better than my klingon or i'd go all Shledon on him) rectified is not a euphemism either :p

Ahhh Germany! der Vaterland! I am so jealous. I was supposed to go this Summer for my cousins wedding and see a Matthias Reim concert. But alas crappy american economy and 67.00/week paychecks prevent that. So I shall dream another year. And maybe manage to deduct it as a tax expense while deploying my own Evil Plan for Economic Sovereingty. Yeah... lets hope its as impressive as it sounds. Imagine though if I could swing a trip to see my Cousin, Matze(Matthias Reim), Sting on his European tour AND catch a con!!!!! I'd knock a HUGE dent in my bucket list!!!!!!! We should maybe name this National Luddite Survial Skills week or something. My sweetie and I are out of contact for technologic reasons as well. It didn't kill my grandparents to not be in constant contact while commuting between Detroit and Elk Rapids in the 40s. It isn't gonna kill any of us now. And given the distinctly stereotypical German temperment... a little distance now and again may actually save the relationship. Though the jones for a rousing game of killer bunnies is quite pressing... I hope you enjoyed much of the German cuisine and the bier. :D

I work with a couple of drop outs and people who really CHOSE not to use their brains for the simplest of things. We are all struggling, minimum wagers and pros. But if some one CHOSES not to help themselves they totally deserve what life hands them... with fries. And you know what gets me most? They are the very same people who beg to be called off. Is there some kind of special algorythim (rithym)(I'm tired my spelling sucks sorry)that will ever be able to fully explain how that can possibly make any logical sense?

I hope you had the presence of mind to avoid calling any bartenders on board Isaac but called the Purser Gopher. my lottery earnings came while you were away. I think the best part for me was the letter. No one ever thinks to tell us what the photos are when they do a montage and it always kind of frustrates me. I work with two other Trek/Wheaton fans and you'd think I'd walked in with the Ark of the Covenant or something. And we all got a kick out of me being 6 of 9. Aside from the obvious Borg reference... it's totally in my numerologic wheelhouse. It's one of the best stories in my life and I will enjoy telling it for years to come. Namaste

Its the Wheaton Recurrence shirt. it might be at shirtwoot.com. If you don't find it just google it. You'll get a big bang link too. I don't remember if it was custom or a limited edition thingy.

I thank you & your d20. Your friendly Bursar thanks your d20. As for feeling funny about a lottery we pay for/liberal guilt allow me to say the book is the prize and the cash is the opportunity. Trust me. No one in our State's lottery commission feels bad that anybody pays 50.00 for an instant ticket worth a POTENTIAL PO.TEN.TIAL 250,000.00 (of which you only keep 45% after taxes.) The hours of joy and the honor of an autographed copy are well worth it. And I will send that info along as soon as I am at a secure connection. You've put the fear of spambots into me otherwise I'd risk it on this public cafe connection. Thank you so much. Here's hoping this starts a good winning streak :D
