I had to stop at the Adventure cupcake, because I'm afraid the awesomeness is going to throttle and disable me where I sit. I'll have to return to Robin's post in manageable chunks.

Um, sorry, Utilitygeek, but that is not a mis-anything. It's "lama" as in "Tibetan teacher", not a misspelling of the furry animal. I saw the first example, Wil, and quite literally yelled out "Defender!" right here at my desk at work. Nice. Thanks.

Children very rarely experience that joint enjoyment and appreciation. I know this because 1) I have a basic background in developmental psychology, 2) I am a dad, and 3) I was a child once myself (shocking, I know). Being young and immature is kinda part of the package of being a kid, Wil (as I know you're aware now). I'm really happy for the gig today and the feelings it engendered in you. I'm even happier that I've been following you and reading your material long enough to have seen your growth and evolution as a human being that has brought you to the point of consciously recognizing this great moment today. (I hope I'm not sounding paternalistic or patronizing, I mean this in the best way possible; you've inspired me at many points along the way.)

Hey Wil, Thanks for responding to my tweet on your blog! :-) On page 134, third paragraph, second-to-last sentence, the word "apologies" should be "apologizes". I haven't seen these episodes for years, but it was such a pleasure reliving those times with your voice in my head. Thanks a TON for sharing your memories and letting us into your life all these years. Also: I'm switching from LivingSocial to GoodReads based on your presence (as a member and an author) on the latter system (LS doesn't have Memories of the Future in their system yet), so I'll start with a review of MotFv1.

I'd never so much as heard of Magic until just a couple of years ago, let alone played (or even met anyone who played it, to my knowledge). Still never laid a hand on an actual card. I just came here to say that I. Love. Your. Writing. Love it. A lot. That is all.

never watched the show before, but you darn well better believe I'm gonna now. SO SO stoked for you getting all these awesome gigs lately, Wil - I know how fickle the industry is, and I'm kvelling like I was your very own Jewish mother. Good on ya!

Not direct mentions of you, Wil, but a couple of Sheldons you'd like & appreciate, I think: http://www.sheldoncomics.com/archive/090119.html and http://www.sheldoncomics.com/archive/090120.html

Enjoy every minute with your family, Wil, without a second thought for the rest of the world. When you're back: even though you visited the exhibit in LV and reported on it, what are the chances you'll come down for maybe an organized WWDN meet at the traveling ST show that conveniently starts in San Diego this weekend? We could set up a group ticket block and take over the joint! Just a thought. I'll be gone all of July, so I'd love to see this happen when I'm around (I'm checking with the museum to see how long the exhibit runs).

Awesome pointer, Wil, and here's another for you: You're in another webcomic today, Kris Straub's chainsawsuit, FTW.

Wil, you're not only practicing the kind of parenting I strive for, you're doing it in the lucid, conscious way I hope I can manage as well, where you are aware of your actions and able to reflect on them. Thank you so much for posting this, what a great thing for you to share with your son. I'll be downloading LB forthwith. Thanks for the reminder. Keep up the good work at home and on the blog!

Love that drive, Wil. I've undertaken it more than once and hope to enjoy it with my kid(s) in the future. Again, your writing is so evocative. Faster than a speeding reader, you are able to leap long timespans in a single phrase. Kudos. I'm reading Stephen King's On Writing at the moment. Considering your early connection to King's work, and your current focus, I found myself wondering if you'd read it?

I will probably miss you at Comic-Con in San Diego this summer, as I'll just be coming home from 3 weeks in Israel the night before it ends, but kudos on the chapbook. Am I really late on this, or do I have the pleasure of introducing you to The Secret Lives of Stormtroopers?
