It seemed appropriate to me that punishments handed down in Nerd Court would be medieval in nature. Not just for the obvious Dungeons and Dragons connection. But have you ever seen a nerd in a position of power meter out justice? It’s brutal. Call it reparations for a youth spent on the receiving end of a hundred locker room swirlies.

That’s pretty much the end of this little story arc. That is, unless I can figure out a way to make Tom’s new scar fit into the comic somehow. If not, I hope you enjoyed the arc.

I know I mentioned on Wednesday that I was going to videotape my interview on The JG Faux Show from Wednesday night. I have footage, but it’s kind of from the back of the room and a little bit obscured.

I heard from the show organizers that they bought a Flip camera to record the show and that they would put their video online soon. They’re camera was right up front, so it’s probably a little bit better of a vantage point. Apparently I am the first guest they’ve had that they’ve recorded. I’ll let you know when it shows up online.

As for the interview itself, I thought it went really well! I have to give these guys credit. They did a good job of researching me and putting embarrassing pictures of myself up on the wall behind me, beamed from a large overhead projector. These were all pictures that I uploaded to MySpace or Facebook or whatever, so I really have no one to blame but myself.

It wasn’t that embarrassing, actually. But the experience kind of tears down the veil between you and your audience. I mean, you upload pictures to these social networking sites and it feels kind of like a one-sided affair. But when there is a room full of people looking at these pictures together in real time, it kind of brings it full circle. I guess I’m finding the experience hard to explain.

I don’t mean to focus on that, though. I had a great time during the interview and would love to go back someday.

Cami was in the audience (and manning our video camera) and after it was over, said that she was very proud of me and that I did a very good job holding my own with the interviewer and making it entertaining. So, long story short, I didn’t embarrass my wife in public. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

I don’t know if I have much more to share. Hopefully Cami and I can find an opportunity to see Where The Wild Things Are this weekend, but we’re having trouble lining up a babysitter for Henry. I’ll be a little bit bummed if I miss it, but a calm weekend at home doesn’t sound bad to me, either.

I hope things are well on your end and I’ll see you here again on Monday!
