I’m off visiting family for the holiday weekend. But I’ll be back Monday with more news, reviews, and whatever else comes up.
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you here in the States! And for those who aren’t, I’ll make sure to eat enough pumpkin pie for all of you too!
Your kitchen consists of dilithium-powered food replicators, manned by obedient robot slaves, who are sure to never, ever rebel. I mean, it’s preposterous to even consider it. Your study has every science fiction title ever written. One of your garages contains a life-sized X-Wing fighter, and KITT. (KITT was a gift from a well-meaning uncle.)
Your home also includes a robot repair bay, where your mechanized servants are routinely fitted with new restraining bolts. (It’s just a precaution.) Your guests enjoy your working holodeck. Outside is your radio telescope, listening constantly for alien transmissions. Especially invaders. They’ll come eventually, even if nobody believes you. (Nobody does.)
Today, I’m on my way to sunny California.
People at FOX were kind enough to fly me and other web-based media people out for a set tour/meet and greet with the cast of the new show The Sarah Connor Chronicles! I’ll be back… in a couple of days. Check back later this week for highlights of the trip… and more on the upcoming show!
Arsgeek.com is trying to raise support for a great cause. I mentioned it the other day, but I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to help out. Young Jonathon has a dream to attend the New York Comic Con next year. And ArsGeek is doing a wonderful thing, trying to spread the word for this deserving, handicapped boy get to the Comic Con. It seems like a relatively easy dream to fulfill if just several people give a little bit! And thanks to those who already have!
I also want to draw attention to another little boy. The son of good friends of mine from college was involved in an accident a few weeks ago. The whole story can be read here. 4-year-old Bryson was playing and accidentally got caught underneath a lawnmower. His leg had to be amputated, and he’s doing better now. But Bryson and his family still need a lot of prayer. He’ll be going through a lot of physical therapy and has a lot more healing to do. Family set up the website: http://brysonhummel.com to post updates, a guestbook that visitors can sign to give uplifting notes, and an address where gifts or cards can be sent.
Please consider giving or just saying a prayer for these precious boys!
I know they’d both appreciate it!

You have to scroll to the bottom of the page, to “Blog Posts About This Topic.” That post of mine had almost nothing to do with that topic, but I’ll take the links where I can get them I guess!
