Slow day at the office

It's summertime and I work for an educational institution. That's not to say that I have nothing to do all day but it does tend to slow way down during the summer months. Come August, I will be working my tail off.

So I'm reading the archives at Wil Wheaton Dot Net and come across an entry where Wil talks about everybody acting like they're his close friends with their emails and comments, etc. He said, "People think that, because I write this site, or because I reply to an email, that we're best friends. That is so not the case. In my real life, I can count my "friends" on both my hands. My close friends can be counted with 4 fingers. Friendship is not something that I take lightly, and it creeps me out that others would throw the term around with such ease."

Now I feel bad about saying "Wil Wheaton and I could easily be good friends..."

Of course, I didn't mean that we'd hit it off and be best pals because I know so much about him now, etc., etc. What I meant was that I got a really good and comfortable vibe from him and feel that, under different circumstance, he and I could easily become good friends given the time to get to know each other.

Geez, now I feel like such a dufus. I mean, I keep writing about Wil Wheaton like I'm an obsessed fan that wants to have his baby or something. Now it's creeping me out.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that he made a strong impression on me and I want to thank him for that. So, Wil, if you ever drop by and read this... thanks. You are a true person - stay that way.

Okay... I need to stop now.
