That is very funny, yet frightening.

I vote for less frightening but more funny.  I'm very amused.  His wife sounds cool, by the way.

What's the standard saving throw against irritated wife?

Geek or no, I thought it was funny. (Tage, I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or not  ::)) I was so in love with Wil Wheaton in high school or junior high or whenever it was. Not that I got the specifics of the gaming references, but it was funny about the hair.

I don't think you get an ability bonus to saving throw against irritated wife. Except maybe Constitution, to resist the brutal effects of her harrangue.

/me wipes a tear from her eye

That was great.

Stacer, I'm glad I'm not the only one, I was so in love with him too, but that was elementary school for me.

Sorry, I thought this was funny.

Quote
Did it bother you that the fans didn't like Wesley?

Yes, at the time, it really really did. Imagine being a teenager, trying to handle all the things a teenager has to deal with. Now multiply that times being on a HUGE TV show, and all these people hate you. It was tough.

Although, I recently realized something. At the time I kept saying to people, "It's a TV show! Don't take it so seriously! It's just a character!" But at the same time, I was really taking it seriously, and personally. And it hurt. But I didn't handle myself with much grace, which I think echoes Wesley's situation: he had the intellectual capacity to be with these adults, and not the emotional capacity. It was the same for me, in real life. I've written some things about it in my weblog, and I write extensively about it in my forthcoming book, Just A Geek.

I hated Wesley!

Really? He always had such nice things to say about you.

I liked Wesley too.  I'm not ashamed of it, because I moved on to having amorous crushes on Riker, Picard, Data, Q, and all the rest of the male crew.

Liking Wesley was much less weird for a 12 year old girl than liking a 50 year old man.

I liked almost none of the characters on that show. Troi, Riker, the Crushers, the stand in doctor, Q.

worf was pretty cool. Data was tolerable. picard rocked (though he was no Kirk).  I seem to remember like Tasha Yar, though now I can't remember a scene she did that was impressive at all. Maybe I'm just bitter that she was the only real hot one and she left the show early on.

see, that's why I'm thinking it was just her appearance. She LOOKED hot.

I saw Star Trek Nemises the other day.  It kinda sucked. But still, it was Trek. I have a money box in the shape of a Kilngon Bust statue on top of my fridge. (Scarily enough, the second joke I ever made up had to do with Klingons.)

imo, it was a better flick than,... well... any of the other Next Generation films.

First contact was wonderful.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

really, Fuzzy? I had a completely different definition of "blows" in connection with Insurrection.
