"guess it should be like ripping off a bandage but it's more like a different metaphor" *ahem* That was a simile, Mr. Wheaton, not a metaphor. Shame on you. And you call yourself a writer...

You forgot one: WHEREAS, Jonathan Coulton cannot hear us, because it is loud with the ShopVac on.

"Lions > vehicles" doesn't even begin to sum it up. Is there a mathematical expression for "way, way greater than"?

I join you in your resolution, Wil. It's been too long since I've strapped the pads on. I hope they haven't mildewed or dry-rotted in storage. Your mention of "third period adrenaline" brings back memories. That perfect, seemingly impossible, save. Also the hard-fought losses. One season I went out with an injury for 3 or 4 weeks. A buddy of mine subbed for me as the team headed in to the playoffs, and he did well. I healed in time for the final game, and walked into the locker room, and apparently nobody got the call that I was coming. I felt like a jerk, and I could tell some of the guys in the locker room felt the same, but I was damned if I was going to ride the pine in the final. My buddy graciously took of his gear and suited up to play D. It was literally the game of my life. I wanted to prove I deserved to be in net. I needed to show that they hadn't made a mistake letting me in there fresh off an injury with the championship on the line. I let in only one goal that game. Late in the overtime period. As a goalie, "near-perfect" means jack shit.

"No one's following me around with a camera hoping to catch me not wearing underwear under my skirt. I know, I've tried. Sigh." "...there are about 53,000 people following me on Twitter. If I think about it too much, like right now, I get freaked out." If that freaks you out, wait until some creepy dude starts following you around Penguicon hoping to catch you not wearing any underwear under your skirt.

"specially when they wore (non-furry) tiger-like suits" LOL. Non-furry tiger suits. Right. Why do geeks act like furries have the plague? I don't think I'll ever understand that. It's just a different geekdom. I'll take a furry over a mundane, any day.

Currently *not* reading Old Man's War, by John Scalzi, because I'm an idiot and I've lost the book. About half way through. If I can't find it soon, I'll have to buy another copy. P.S. Isn't that just like Wesley, to answer a question directed at Q? OK, yeah, that was lame... Sorry.

Shame on you, Wil... You're a writer. You oughta know. It's not the addition or deletion of characters, it's what you do with (or to) them. Season One introduced the most characters of all, and it didn't suck. Last season was not as good as it should have been, but the non-addition of those new characters would not have saved it. I look forward to Season 3, with all of its new (and old) characters, and hope it doesn't suck. But if it does, I won't be blaming the characters for that.

I understand Randal Munroe "doesn't do cons"... but he will be at Penguicon next month. Maybe you should hop a plane (in your big boy pants, please) and come meet him :-)

As long as it's something cool, and not just some lame url-on-a-t-shirt, I'm interested.

I don't know about reading, but if you're in the mood for *listening*, I highly recommend Escape Pod. http://escapepod.org/ There's some excellent short F/SF there, and the editor rather likes speculative fiction. Escape Pod is great for me because I love F/SF, but I rarely make time to sit and read anymore. Driving to work? Listen to a story. Doing monotonous manual labor, like raking leaves? Listen to a story.
