Changes

I wasn't a big Wil Wheaton fan back in my Star Trek fan days. Not that I really hated him -- I disliked the way the writers used Wesley Crusher, and as the anti-Wesley sentiment grew, I knew that Wil didn't stand a chance. Eventually all there was to DO was hate Wesley, and hate Wil Wheaton as a side effect.

Honestly, I liked him best in "The Buddy System".

But, like a lot of folks, I peek in on his weblog from time to time. I'm fascinated by the concept of "Famous Guy as Real Person". I'm watching him on Tech TV doing Call for Help and being geeky in an endearing and, honestly, pretty interesting way.

He's grown up, I've grown up, and now, I'd pay to see him. I think he's got talent and personality and a good attitude. And -- wow -- he's really developed a good voice. Yup, he could talk sexy at me and I wouldn't laugh. Not one bit.

Of course, I'm still a Spock girl deep inside.
