In response to this post, my sister, the awesome author of The Square Root of Style (who I am specifically calling out and linking to because she totally needs to update her blog immediately!) pointed out another completely amazing and awesome thing that Wil Wheaton had done. Another blogger, T,he Bloggess, had decided that she would like a picture of Wil collating papers. To truly understand why, I recommend you read her post.
Wil Wheaton, being the awesome individual that he is, complied within hours and sent her a photograph of himself collating paper! I saw it on his blog and didn't quite understand what was happening until Suzanne directed me to The Bloggess' page and suddenly it all made sense.
How hysterical is that? Totally the kind of celebrity that both Husband and I can appreciate: he's embracing his past, kind of making fun of himself, and engaging with fans! I approve, Wil Wheaton! I 100% approve!
So some of you may have noticed that a new My Favorite Places link popped up on my blog a few days ago. It's a link to Wil's blog that everyone should check out! Today he's written a really sweet piece about the Stand By Me reunion and the absence of River Phoenix. So sad.
On a scale of 0 to Completely Totally and Indescribably Awesome, Wil was dangerously close to blowing the curve for everyone. Then he wrote about Rock Band.
... (pause for stunned silence as you all realize that Wil Wheaton may in fact be my soul mate as he shares my sense of humor and my love for Rock Band. Is there anything else to life?)
Not only did he write about Rock Band. He wrote about playing Rock Band for hours and hours trying to beat the Endless Setlist, i.e. every song in the game! On Expert!
Husband, seriously, now is when you should start to be more than a little concerned.
I'll be honest, I've never even attempted the song Green Grass and High Tides. I have seen two people who are far better at Rock Band than I fail out in mere seconds. So just the fact that he made it through any portion of the song makes him a Rock Band god in my book. I considered attempting to play it as a tribute of sorts to the awesome Wil Wheaton.
Then I decided that there was something else I could do that was a little more up my alley and required less finger dexterity.

I could wear my green Secret Treasure Dress right after St. Patrick's Day and title this post Green Grass and High Tides!
Now, I had no intention of wearing this dress at any point during the month of March. It's really freakin' green and when I winterized it back in early February, a woman at my courthouse shouted across the room at me that it looked like a St. Patrick's Day dress.
I already was not a fan of this particular woman so that comment left a bad taste in my mouth and I vowed that I would not, in fact, wear this completely St. Patrick's Day appropriate dress at any point close to St. Patrick's Day.
But then the Great Wheaton convinced me to change my mind. So Wil Wheaton, I wore this dress on March 21st for you!!!!!!! I hope you appreciate it!
