Friday (3/19/10) 4:14pm - ... wherein Peter tries to get a quote right.

Hmm.  I'm trying to chase down the exact phrasing of this quote:

Every time you say,  "Wow, that guy has way too much time on his hands," the part of you that creates things for the sheer joy of it dies a little bit.
I think it's from Wil Wheaton, but I can't find the original line.  :-/  Anybody know where this is from?

Okay, I couldn't find it. I'm not sure Wil Wheaton said it. I think someone may have said it in response to him posting the Baba O'Reilly thing. But I feel like it was somehow in reference to that. He posted it on February 24th. But I can't scroll back through my whole Twitter feed that far to find who said it.

Yes, I are a dork. :) But I was really struck by that thought when it was posted, and I just don't remember who said it.

Here's something that's in the same ballpark....

(Yes, it's going into the rotating .sig file. :))

Oh, you know what? I think it may be that Wil Wheaton retweeted that. I think that's what I'm remembering.

And, yeah, I heartily approve of the sentiment in that quote. :)
