  • It boggles my mind that Wil can walk out of the house and off to work with no bag on his shoulder, and nothing in his hands. #

  • Wil went to Phoenix to record w/ Krassner. I’m excited to hear new stuff from the Pillars… I’ll be there in spirit, maybe backups later on #
  • @djearlybird: Whatchoo talkin’ bout, did you do one too? OH THAT. That’s nothin’!! Not even a blip on my annoyance radar. Not what I mean. #
  • @djearlybird: p.s. I will only slander nameless faceless tech-information bloggers, not friends. Did you use a pie chart? I don’t think so. #

  • @meimaimaggio: I bet @SantaClaus has a computer built right into the dasher-board. ;-) Merry Christmas / happy holidays everyone! #

  • Honest Gift Tags
  • Oooh I got a box from JJ! But I can’t open it, so I gave it to Wil to hide. Otherwise it might start talking to me. #

  • The TV was on (IRL) and I could “see” it… but when I put my hand up to cover that view, IT WAS INVISIBLE. Everybody look at your hands! #
