One of the perks to living in Los Angeles is that one (me) could be out on their lunch break and run into a celebrity walking down the street like any other normal person. Next to my Justin Timberlake sighting, I think this is my favorite. Rainn Wilson, Dwight K. Schrute of The Office, was grabbing food at a CP lunch spot.
I wanted to say hi but I always feel like I’m inconveniencing celebs so instead I smiled like an idiot and walked away. After I left (of course) I realized what my ice breaker should have been…
Apart from being a hilarious office hall monitor, Rainn Wilson started a website called SoulPancake. It’s really cool (I was actually on it last night, synchronicity anyone?). The whole premise of the site is to engage in discussion about Spirituality, creativity and philosophy…and in Rainn’s words, make those important topics “cool again.” I took a quick glance at Rainn’s chart, he’s got a lot of “mystical” Mercury placements that make him a fiend for knowledge – particularly of the esoteric kind. His Mercury trines both Uranus and Pluto and sextiles Neptune.
Perhaps there is more to Dwight K. Schrute than meets the eye.
