MR. OR MS. MEAT AND POTATOES

You never entirely saw the humor in the book title Real Men Don't Eat Quiche, and you'd take a steak and fries over a spinachy egg pie any day. If your plate doesn't contain meat and a starch, you end up feeling unsatisfied. And please don't even mention sushi. Finally, when it comes to vegetables, your tastebuds stop somewhere right after corn and peas.

While I haven't caught everything he's been in, I've been a fan of Wil Wheaton since his Star Trek: The Next Generation days. While many of my fannish peers wanted to "Kill Wesley Crusher", the character was a bit like I would have liked to have been at that age. Wil's latest TV endeavor, The Wil Wheaton Project, is a mix of science-fiction, fantasy, horror, comics, and gaming news with irreverent...
