I'm trying really hard not to be upset with the network for issuing a statement to the press before the cast knew, so we wouldn't have to find out the way we did; as you can imagine, it isn't exactly easy. Back, in 2004, my huge international bank merged with another huge international bank. Our particular center was in San Diego, and was a sister site to one in Florida. The other bank was based in Phoenix, so we knew almost immediately that the new bosses (somehow they were all from the other bank, even though the other bank was smaller than us) would lay us all off and move our center to Phoenix. We used to joke that we'd find out on accident on our weekly conference call with the National Loss Executive. It turns out we were right. The call went something like this: Anonymous speaker: ...when we close down San Diego. *We all look at each other. There is awkward silence on the line.* Another anonymous speaker: San Diego is on the call. *More awkward silence.* It really sucks when everyone else knows you're getting laid off except you. Sorry Wil. :(

I'm pretty sure she said that because EVERYONE has heard of WOW, but most people don't understand D&D.

Just bring your cats with you. My cat is terrified of cars (she thinks she's going to the vet, which she usually is), and I've had to drive her across country twice in 18 months. She did fine both times, and each trip was 6 days. Your cats will be fine, and you won't be subjected to the TSA, and you'll save the money as well.

Wil, on behalf of all Americans, I hope you succeed. Because this invasive security theater is completely against the Constitution. I don't think an anonymous person like me could make any sort of difference, but maybe you can. Thank you for your honesty and your effort.

Damn. You HAVE been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately. And that should be TARDIS, mister.
