  • Now that's the sad face I'm looking for. twitpic.com/2intha  (aug 27)
  • Is Grover sad I'm leaving? I'm reading apathy. twitpic.com/2int6u  (Aug 27)
  • Chicago, Chicago, hell of a town, hell of a town. Then Toronto. They need theme song..and I they will have one after I'm done w/ that city (Aug 27)
  • Back in in Malibu. Attacked by my four dogs. When they piss on your leg, that means they miss you, right? Waves are sweet. Going surfin! (Aug 26)




  • Chicago you owe me one signing arm! Thanks so much for the long and happy lines...See you soon! (Aug 29)
  • Want to discuss Chicago Convention or next weeks Dragon*Con or more...why not dial up dGeek: bit.ly/a99PSt ·

  • Just got to Chicago and I've already lost @joeflanigan and missed Picardo...great to catch up with the fabulous master Shanks though! (Aug 27)
  • Waiting for plane and so tired, thanks to Baz's 4am potty training session, I just dropped my iPhone in my coffee...Chicago, here I Zzzz...!
  • Back from Los Angeles so I can get back on plane tomorrow and fly to see my peeps in Chicago. I try but can't make word "peeps" work for me

  19. taralee2: David asked Joe "Ohh, where are all YOUR gifts?! Did they roll off the stage??"
  20. taralee2: When David first came out he proceeded to rock in the chair to which Joe then wondered where the idea for actors chairs came from...
