If I was to open my vial right now, there would be a mess as I left it on the kitchen counter over night. I tossed it in the fridge where it belongs. Will the yeast go back to it's "rest" state once it gets cooled down?

The exact same thing happened to me the first time I used White Labs yeast. The beer I used it in turned out fine. I even harvested 800ml of the starter to bank the yeast.

Yep, just bring it back up to room temp before pitching.
