Crush on the Crusher
T, if you're reading, you may want to pass this post by. I know you won't be jealous, but your techno geeky co-workers are bound to give you some ribbing for this one. Sorry. But I do know how to check IP addresses, so if you and your friends try to f*ck with me, I'll know!

My bloggy friend Alpha Dogma is a huge Star Trek fan. Some of her recent posts made me decide to "come out" (so to speak) about something.

I have a crush on Wesley Crusher. I loved Star Trek the Next Generation.

I know that the subject of Wesley Crusher can be quite polarizing among Next Generation fans. It seems that many people either hated the character or loved the character. I don't understand the hatred. I loved Wesley Crusher! In fact, his was the character I identified with the most. Perhaps it's because we're same age (he's 2 1/2 months older than me) and he's really cute. I don't know, just a guess.

Anyway, I nearly wept when Wil Wheaton left the show. I've purchased all of his books. I'm ordering his new book. {Edited to add} Scratch that. I just ordered a signed, numbered, limited edition of his new book. I read his blog. If I ever went to a Star Trek convention, it would be just to see if I could spot (dare I hope, meet?) Wil. I don't quite stalk him, but I heart Wil Wheaton. I guess I have a soft spot for cute guys who are also self-professed geeks.

Jenny from Mama Drama and The Blogess actually got Wil to comment on one of her posts once. I wonder if he'd make my day and do the same for me...? (Hint, Hint, Wil.)

Daydreaming about Wil? Perhaps....

Wil, you know you really want to comment!

I am not Wil, but I read his blog too and you, my dear, are hilarious.

Blogger slouching mom said...

Right now I'm feeling a bit old and out of the loop. I knew about this series but never watched it.

Hope he comments, though!

Blogger Julie Pippert said...

LOL! You are too much.

I don't know which "sluttiness" to address first so hmmm...here goes...I hope Wil hears your desperate appeal and comments for you!

I thought Riker was hot.

Wesley seemed too young. ;)

And THAT is the FIFTH time I have felt TOO OLD in four days.

P.S. I was reading and thought, "Oh he has a blog," then you said you know, and then I thought, 'Dude Jenny got a comment from him!" then you said you knew so I realized I was USELESS. But maybe I can troll his blog and beg for you. I've done it before, I can do it again.

Maybe we can all stalk him on your behalf and get him to comment over here for you.

As for me, Riker (Frakes) drove me crazy, not in a good way. And I was simply jealous of Wil for getting to be on the show in the first place.

And despite Wil being my age, I always thought Patrick Stewart was hot. His voice alone makes me swoon. Yummy. I think Sean Connery is delicious too, so I have a thing for much older men apparently.

Blogger bubandpie said...

I'm a hater. Such a whiny little weenie. And all the other characters were always so "Oh Wesley! He's so special! So gifted and set apart!" Barf.

Patrick Stewart, though. Yum.

Blogger jen said...

for the love of god, Wil, show a sister some love over here.

Blogger PunditMom said...

Have to say I'm with Bub and Pie -- Patrick Stewart rocks! But I'll definitely support your Wil crush!

Anonymous Emily R said...

I tried to leave him a comment telling him to get his skinny little tush over to your place, but I had to register and stuff. Too complicated.

I am going to make EVERYONE jealous when I tell you I saw Patrick Stewart playing Macbeth last night. Oh, yeah.

Blogger Alpha DogMa said...

I swooned over Wil Wheaton for most of my youth, and even now I get all blushy when I read his blog.

I don't get the hate for Wesley. Yes, he was gifted and special and set apparent from others and a genius and occasionally whiny and he often saved others in dramatic fashion. Hmm...does he sound like another fictional teenage boy? Oh, yes: HARRY POTTER AND EVERYONE LOVES HIM! Even Bub&Pie!

Maybe if next year's BlogHer is held in tandem with a StarTrek convention I'll attend.

Blogger Defiantmuse said...

duuuude, I totally had a huge crush on him. In fact, I even had my wall plastered with his face, ripped from teeny bopper magazines. Yes, I was that girl.

Anonymous Jenny said...

I don't think I ever mentioned it on my blog but he emailed me too.

I actually screamed when I opened it.

Blogger Lawyer Mama said...

Ladies - I may have to start a stalking campaign. Jenny has given me hope. J - he EMAILED you!????? Ahhhhhhh!

Celeste - I swear I've never been the teeny bopper, posters on the wall type, but I heart Wil Wheaton. Glad to know I'm not the only one....

Emily - I am incredibly jealous. You Londoners have all the fun.

And of course he seemed younger, Julie. Even though he's my age, actors always seem to play characters that are younger. Why is that? Anyone know? Is it just so we can be incredibly angsty as pre-teens, convinced by watching TV that everyone is entering adolescence more quickly than we are?

Blogger ExPatSW said...

C and I would watch; she would drool over Wesley, I over Riker and Picard. Ahhh, those wonderful mother-daughter-bonding experiences!

Emily, I'm glad you posted. I have been debating whether or not to pop for the tickets. Glad to hear that it was worth it!

And, LM, actors generally play characters younger than they are in real life because it's more difficult to play an age which one has yet to experience. Not impossible, just more difficult. Would it be easier for you to play a thirty-year-old woman or a sixty-year -old?

Blogger Alpha DogMa said...

Just checking in on the status of your Good Wil Hunting excursion. No word, huh?

About actors and youth: actors are often older than their characters when the role is for a teenager. Because of labour rules underaged actors can only work a certain number of hours a day AND they must have a tutor on the set. So to get around this limitation on the filming schedule producers will cast a 20 year old to play a 15 year old, for example.

And this, Ladies, explains the casting of Luke Perry on 90210. If boys had THAT much facial hair in my high school I'd have fainted from testerone exposure.

Blogger Jenn said...

Please don't love me less just because I have no idea what the heck you're talking about.

(But I'm totally hoping the Wil dude visits)

Blogger Mad Hatter said...

Wil, Come out, come out wherever you are? We can all assure you that LM is not a crazy stalker mumma. A gal has to have her dreams, though.

He always seemed so young to me.

Oh and this picture is divine.

Anonymous slackermommy said...

You crack me up! Thanks for making me chuckle. I needed it today.

Blogger Lawyer Mama said...

No sign of Wil yet, ladies. But I'll keep stalking him.

Blogger Carmen said...

You are too funny!

Anonymous Jenny said...

Just checking in.

Be patient. The Wheaton can be an elusive prey.

Blogger CPA Mom said...

Never did see much use to Wil - but Patrick Stewart - he is the MAN. Even HP knows how much I crush on him. I'll do what I can to get Wil to comment for you...

Anonymous Jenny said...

Still no Wil?

He might be intimidated. Leave out a deck of cards and some cheese.

Everybody likes cheese.

this is HILARIOUS.

(how come Michael Vartan doesn't have a blog i can stalk???)

Blogger Angela said...

Apparently I fall into the TOO OLD crowd as Wil is 5 years younger than me, so when TNG was out he was way under my age range. And Riker? Puh-lease! Totally arrogant. Data was my absolute favorite!! Show me all your positions!

BTW, I put a plug in for you at:
