So, today, this happened....

Wil Wheaton posted on his blog....11:33am

"I have a lot to do before I leave for Phoenix tomorrow. I have to prepare my setlist for my show (this includes building a slideshow, which I've never done before. I'm terrified I'm going to screw it up, so of course I waited until the last minute to do it, because the stress of not knowing how to do it properly goes oh-so-well with the stress of not having enough time to get it done).

I have to finish making my DVDs. I have to pack up all my books and drop them off to be shipped (which I should have done on Monday, but didn't, because ... well, I don't know exactly why, to be honest. I just didn't, and now it's Wednesday and I get to pay too much to ship them 2-day air. Yay.)

I'm also way past a writing deadline on this project that seemed like a good idea when I said yes, but has become a fucking albatross about my neck.

So I realized, just now, that my brain has activated OMG DEADLINE SURVIVAL mode. This means that I listen to Pink Floyd and The Beatles on repeat, tune out the rest of the world (except when I'm doing stupid things to amuse myself and stay sane online) and just sort of plow through things more-or-less on autopilot.

It's interesting to me that the deadline panic feels the same, and comes from the same place, whether I need to get something out of my head and onto the page, or whether I need to get a lot of somethings out of my house and shipped to a con."

So, sensing an opportunity, I sent this....12:39pm

Dear super nerdy icon that I love aka Wil,


Is there any chance that you'll be willing to offer your compendium on a case by case basis? I'd really love to have this, and I was too late at ECCC to get one.

Granted, after you return from the chaos of Con. AND I will be your very best friend!
What are my chances?

Have a great con!

And then got this....12:44pm

If I sell all 20 I'm taking to PHXCC, I will feel confident that ECCC wasn't a fluke, and I will begin looking into thumb drives and some kind of electronic sale, but I don't have any plans at the moment to do the DVDs via direct mail (it's *waaaayyy* too much work.)

Thanks for asking, though. I hope you can get your hands on one at some point in the Mysterious Future.


Disappointed, I sent this....1pm

Meh! It's all good, thanks for taking the time to let me know!

I will just have to try to be quicker at ECCC and/or W00tstock the next time you're here in Portland!

Have fun in Phoenix, and know that you're missing all the fun rain in Ptown this week. And I am sure you will sell out, you just need to accept that you're just that awesome!

And then this was on Wil's Twitter: 1:29pm

"By the way, People Who Are Nice To Me ( you know who you are): Thank you. You have no idea how much I need kindness today."

Was it for me? Eh, maybe, do I feel like it was? Definately. *Squee*
