Putting on my "dad" voice here: Fast-moving water can be very dangerous. It only takes a few inches of it to knock you off your feet and wash you away before you know what hit you. Please, keep kids away from creeks, streams, or even barely-flooded streets where the water is flowing fast. Don't drive into water whose depth you are not absolutely sure of. And seriously, don't try to reach into a storm drain to get something. It doesn't take a scary clown to injure you in a situation like that. Flash flooding is no joke, so let's all be careful out there.

The Trader Joe's "commercial" is fantastic! Pat (my wife) and I always make a point of stopping into one of their stores when we are in L.A., since they haven't made it to the Dallas area yet. The item that they discontinued that Pat misses most: UFOs. Trader Joe's shoppers should know what those are (or were).

I just heard about this, but I wouldn't have been able to play anyway due to other commitments. Still, count me among those who hope that you will put together another tourney, or maybe even a semi-recurring series, so I can play in the future. The old WWdN games were always lots of fun, and I would be happy to see them come back!

I saw the movie last night (Thursday) and loved it! We had a few smatterings of applause during the film (not much, we didn't want to miss anything), plenty of big laughs at the funny bits, lots of the same murmerings as you had, and then a nice ovation at the end. I plan to see it at least once more, in IMAX next. More movies with this group would be, in a word, hawesome!

Now there is no doubt that I will be in line opening night for this film. The previews have certainly looked good and made me think that there was a decent chance that the movie would come close to the quality of the book. Your review gives me confidence that I will not be disappointed.

Very good news. Last year, I couldn't get to a con where you were appearing, or you couldn't get to a con where I was appearing, or something, so I'm glad that Sunken Treasure will be available to the rest of us.

I am also registered but don't know yet which tourney(s) I will have a chance to play in. I'll be looking for you; maybe we'll end up in the same one.

I actually met Forrest Ackerman many years ago when he appeared as an invited guest at the grand opening of a comic bok store owned by a good friend of mine. I only said hello to Mr. Ackerman, but he was very nice and my friend had nothing but good things to say about him. I know he will be very much missed.

Damn fine work, sir. I hope it leads to more acting gigs for you, you deserve it.

Great job at the tourney. Too bad that the squeeze play didn't work, but I thought the same thing you did after the fact, that your opponents have to be ready and able to fold. More WWdN tourneys? I'll be there. I'm working on building up the bankroll a bit, so if you can keep it in the $5.50 range, at least to start, that would be nice.

Be careful not to pop your clutch. That can be painful.

Last year, when I went to the Big Honkin' Trek Convention at the Hilton, I took the Backstage Tour at the Experience. It was very cool for a long time fan like me. Now I am very glad that I did it. I enjoyed the Experience each time I visited. My wife and son and I might even try to make the trip out there to go through it one last time before it shuts down for good. I will be sorry to see it go, and I hope it finds a new home somewhere.

Congrats on the job! When you are rusty at something, sometimes you have to shake off the rust (see: your crappy audition last week) so you will be ready for the next chance (see: the successful audition this week). Of course, I'm not telling you something that you don't already know. But remembering that can make the pain of the sucky time sting a little less. I look forward to seeing your episode of Criminal Minds, and I'll be watching for the announcement of the air date. Oh: I lost my dance belt some years ago. I should get a new one.

Wil, I'll be at the con this weekend, thinking positive thoughts for you and your family. For those thinking about going to the con, the lineup of guests and stuff sounds pretty good to me despite Wil having to cancel. I'm especially looking forward to seeing the Enterprise Blues Band. I might just have to wear my "Expendable" shirt like Wil and I did at the Las Vegas con last year. If you see me, please say hello!
