A Huge Compliment, And Of Course Wil Wheaton

I got home from work today and, as usual, got online to
see what there was to see. I checked my favorites, and my
email, and was just cruising the web when all of a sudden,
out of the blue, comes this random IM:

"Hello, I am a big fan of your Journal. I haven't gotten
all the way through it yet but, I am getting there.....
It's like a book that you can't put down. I know I know I
sound like a big dork... but I like it.."

My jaw dropped to the floor. I couldn't believe it.
Someone (other than Gale and Mac) reading this?! A book you
can't put down?! HOLY SHIT!! (And you know me and my love for books,
so that makes it a doubly great compliment!)

The conversation went on, and it was odd because I was
being asked about things by someone who knew me but who I
knew nothing at all. But it was cool, and so incredibly
flattering. I can't believe it. This person even went so
far as to START AT THE FIRST ENTRY. Which is what I do
when I find a journal I like, but still. It's very rare.
And she sent the link to a friend.

I don't think I've ever gotten such a compliment before.
It's both thrilling and horrifying at the same time. I
feel like I'm just writing what I know and feel, nothing
outragous, nothing special. But the side of me that craves
attention absolutely loves it. So thank you Julie, you've
made my life (I'd say day, but this really is huge).

As for Wil Wheaton, he is on a road trip and is calling in
his updates, so I can actually hear him talk!! That's
fucking awesome. A compliment AND Wil both in one day? I
don't think life could get any better.
