Holy sh*t! Wil Wheaton!

Despite the very real fact that I was entertaining company in my living room, I  flipped the f*ck out when I saw my bud, Bonnie Burton (author of the Star Wars Craft Book & worth a whole rad blog post for herself!), posted the following last night:


..what?

Wil Wheaton & his rad wife, Anne, are currently in possession of one of my Red Mario Mushrooms?

And they're making it sing like total nerds in a video? You mean someone else plays with my amigurumi as I'd previously instructed in video-form?

For real?!?!?!

Wil Wheaton sings "Happy Birthday" using random toys in his house

HOLY SH*T!

Okay, y'all need some context:

For those of you who haven't guessed, I'm a giant dork.

My dad thought having two daughters meant that they'd love playing racing video games on the Sega Genesis for hours on end, being able to quote random cult classic movies in everyday conversation and have Star Wars & Star Trek TNG marathons every Friday night of their childhood.

Daddy raised some top class ladies.

Needless to say, this tubby photo-bombin' 8 year-old gal was smitten with Wesley Crusher.

And years later, when Felicia Day (Penny from "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog") created her own web series about being a gamer geek called "The Guild", I was stoked! And Wil Wheaton was back on my radar.

When I got on Twitter, one of the first people I followed was @wilw.

When I decided to read more books this year, the only eBook I bought (other than Bossypants) was Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton.

I also happen to love "Big Bang Theory." ANYways...

Through following him on Twitter and reading his works (which have a foreword by Neil Gaiman *le sigh of swoon*), I've learned about Wil's life struggles, his battles and have come to appreciate his successes. This new-found respect has made his geekdom even awesomer...

In short, the man himself knows what time it is!

So, when my home-gal, Bonnie, told me that Wil Wheaton had just made a video with my red Mario Mushroom in it, this was my response:



As you can see, my first response was to go to revert to my 8 year old self & get angry at my cracked iPad for not keeping up with the internets! But then I tried to recover...

I did the best I could.

And since I know that Wil Wheaton can appreciate the fact that sometimes you've just gotta let your true self show, I'm collating my collective embarrassment on my very own blog to show that I'm not a d*ck about it.



If you haven't already, you should really check out Wil's blog & follow him on Twitter.
Check out his books, too. They're effing awesome and worth every bloody penny.



 This post was in no part sponsored by Wil Wheaton. I'm just a nerd & dig what he has to say. Hopefully, you have something to say about that?

    1. AHHH! Aww, dude - it totally did! I am still trying to "slow my roll" and not bug people with how much I'm over the moon about this.

      But it's like my 8-year-old self's dream!!

      Just so you know, I'm making that Pee Wee Herman face again - but of happiness. :D

  3. THAT IS SO AWESOME! I wasn't sure if you'd see my reply back on my blog {Peachy Geek} so I thought I'd comment on here and spaz with you, ha.

    I also discovered your blog through My Girl Thursday on her side bar last week when she was doing the tattoo giveaway. I'm pretty sure I favorited like everything in your Etsy shop, haha.

    You are AWESOME. We should be best friends, yay! :D Haha.
