 wtf, universe?
In the picture above, you see me, eating a Pita from Pita Pit at Pioneer Courthouse Square at approximately 5:35pm. This was after deciding that I didn't really feel like sitting inside the restaurant to eat. This was also after deciding that, for the first time ever, I was NOT going to visit Powell's City of Books while wandering the city. These, as it turns out, were two of the dumbest decisions I could have made today. You see, apparently, my childhood idol, Wil Wheaton, was not only spotted outside Pita Pit at around 5:30 this evening, but he also then proceeded to spend the next two hours roaming the sci-fi section of Powell's. THAT'S THE SECTION I'M ALWAYS IN!!!! Hath the universe conspired against me??? I mean, I've written a freakin' (humorous, not creepy) song about this guy (which will hopefully make its YouTube debut sometime in the near future)! I watched Star Trek religiously for the Wesley Crusher scenes as a child. If he guest stars on a TV show, I immediately look it up and watch it. And here he was, not only in my city, but apparently mere steps behind me, and I MISSED HIM! I am a failure as a geek, a blogger, and a lover of all things '90s. End me now! I have failed you all, and I have failed myself. That picture should not be of me stuffing my face. It should be of me and Wil Wheaton poring over a copy of Shatnerquake. Guh.
