It may be tricky for me -- middle of the week times are tough, especially getting so close to the end of the semester, but I will definitely try to make it!

Very cool that TJ's got a rare day off. Even cooler of him to actually want to spend any portion of that day off with his fans. Thanks, TJ!

I thought it was fun, Sharon. Some very interesting questions, especially about the work he did in Africa, which was remarkable, and his response about the complex nature of the scripts he receives and all the writes and rewrites and approvals it goes through before it even reaches his hands and even well after that, while he's filming! Wow.

Anyway, I thought it stayed on track pretty nicely, with not too many strays from whatever topic on hand (though sometimes it understandably takes a few moments for TJ to read through all the responses and respond to as many of them as he can, so we all have to remember that he's not ignoring anyone, he's actually just behind in conversation and may respond in delay so it's important not to jump on him or assume he's not going to answer your question).

I hope that some of the people for whom English is not their first language found the pace a little better for participation this time around. I know that was a concern from the last chat.

And honestly, I think the next chat could make it even easier for everyone to participate. If TJ decides to ask some questions of his own, it might give him the opportunity to get to know people better and more specifically converse with them. (And might take the pressure off people who don't have an immediate, specific question for TJ that he hasn't already answered for us.) I think it could be really fun for everyone involved, and most hopefully, really fun for TJ.

At any rate, I loved having the opportunity to chat with TJ and once again thank you both (Sharon and Steph) for putting it all together.

And thank you to TJ, for giving up some valuable time in his rare day off, to talk with his fans! Very generous and kind. :D

As always, it was great getting a chance to talk to TJ. It was really awesome learning about his charity work in Africa and about some of the behind-the-scenes on the Bones set. What he does and what he's able to do with his life is incredible and I love that he's willing to find a little of his time to share it us.

I liked how everyone got the chance to ask him a question and I'm not sure about everyone else, but I love his long answers. You can tell that he is deeply committed and compassionate about what he does. :)

Can't wait for next time when he gets to question us! That should be lots of fun!! :D :eusa-dance:
