Yes, I met Wil Wheaton. And because I’m lazy, here’s what I wrote at my LJ:
I don’t know why, but I was totally silly and kept saying that. I’ve been reading Wil’s blog for awhile now and of course I had watched him as Wesley Crusher, so it was a neat-oh experience meeting him. He’s a swell fella and quite nice.
The only reason I knew about Super Con in San Jose was because Wil Wheaton mentioned it on his blog. And when I saw the mention, I thought about perhaps going. As the weekend approached, I thought, why not?
We weren’t sure which day we were going to go. Yesterday ended up being a lazy day, so we today we headed out to San Jose and Super Con.
We got in and wandered around and eventually found Wil at his table. There were a couple of people talking to him, so I went over and looked at his table and waited for his attention. A fellow was before me and he gave Wil this black t-shirt that said “sci-fi” in Greek letters. (So psi phi.) Wil was stoked and kept saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?” LOL! It was cute. The t-shirt was given to the guests, from what I overheard.
And then it was my turn. I asked Wil the cost of his latest book, then got some money from the hubby. I asked for a picture and he of course said yes. He walked out from behind his table and I introduced myself. He said my name a couple of times so that he would remember when he autographed my copy of his book.
I said thank you after it all and I was quite happy after I walked away. He’s a sweet guy!
