Thank you for bringing this to my attention, Wil. I have such a man-crush on you.

Sony Releases New Stupid Piece Of Shit That Doesn’t Fucking Work

Pencils and graph paper and dice, oh my!

I’m a geek. About this fact we are all in agreement. But sometimes I feel like I’m failing in upholding the standards and values of true geekdom. Wil Wheaton is a geeks-geek who has never lost the faith. I got re-hooked onto his blog recently and this article he did about playing D&D made me totally miss my crystal dice set. I haven’t played a good old-fashioned pencil-and-paper RPG in way too long.

Wil got to play in a campaign of Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition with Gabe and Tycho from Penny-Arcade and Scott Kurtz from PVP and, to top it off, Chris Perkins from Wizards of the Coast was the DM! Dude, I would have given my left nut to be in that party (especially since I’ve already had two kids and aren’t looking forward to more). Even better than all that, he got to play a new unreleased character class. Man, why do washed up former child actor geeks get all the opportunities? jk Wil, I love ya’, in a totally platonic man kind of way. Did I mention that my wife[1] once got your autograph at a convention, but had you sign the back of Marina Sirtis’s head shot ’cause that’s all she had? I’m just jealous.

My kids better learn to read soon, ’cause I’ve got shelves full of RPG goodness just waiting for them to be able to fill out a character sheet and not put the dice in their mouth. I’ll bet the boy could calculate THAC0. I can hardly wait…[2]

[1] She wasn’t my wife at the time, this was back in high school. She was just my best friend then.

[2] Aren’t footnotes cool? I decided to figger ’em out. Now I can be all cool and geeky with references to stuff. As if I were writing something that wasn’t completely pointless 😛
