I’m back from New York City where I spent an incredibly fun 2.5 weeks hanging out with my two adorable nieces. If you want to see some pictures from NY, check out the “HNG in NYC” album on the HNG facebook page. Within hours off stepping off the plane I was drinking Scotch with my… Continue reading An Out of this World Fair
The first time I went to WonderCon was way back in 2002 while I was in college in San Francisco. I was the only girl in the group and was rocking my Batman Underoos and a very ill-fitting SFSU sweatshirt. Since moving to Southern California I wasn’t sure I’d ever go to a WonderCon again… Continue reading WonderCon 2012
At first I didn’t that think our little Leap Day trip to Disneyland was nerdy enough to write about. Then I thought about the fact that I stayed up all night for a history-making 24 hour Disney marathon and I realized that this is about as nerdy as it gets. Our little group chose a… Continue reading My Star Wars Leap Day Night Thing at Disneyland
I don’t throw parties very often but when I do I usually pull them off pretty well. I hadn’t had a birthday party since I turned 21 so I figured it was as good a time as any to put one on. Naturally, it had to be nerd-themed. The invite specified that costumes were required… Continue reading HNG’s Birthday Party Bonanza!
My Dad came to SoCal to visit my brother and I and being the family o’ nerd that we are, we decided to go to the Discovery Science Center’s Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit in Santa Ana. I’ve always wanted to visit the giant black cube that looks suspiciously Borg-like so this was… Continue reading The Star Wars Experience
About 10 days ago I got an email asking me if I was interested in joining Rod Roddenberry at a private viewing of his documentary Trek Nation being held for his friends and a few fans. Uh…does the Enterprise have warp nacelles?? It was not a difficult decision 😉 Rod and his peeps were kind… Continue reading Trek Nation and the Next Generation of Greatness
On Saturday I went to Long Beach Comic Con, a fairly young comic book convention that is small enough that comic books *GASP!* are still the primary focus. Imagine that. Anyhooters, it was pretty epic for me because I attended as a “professional” aka a member of the press. My list of press passes has been steadily… Continue reading Long Beach Comic Con wrap-up 2011
Yay! My computer has been on the fritz since I moved and I’ve been relying on my friends and family for computer access (hence the lack of blog posts). But I now have a brand spankin’ new power supply and I’m back up and running bitches! *sigh* My life is once again complete. On to… Continue reading Oh my Odin! It’s Vikingfest!
I got the heads up about the AMP Music Festival from it’s Producer Andy Lowe (who directed Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Live! in San Diego a couple of months ago). He drew me in with videos of George Takei…an excellent method of nerdy seduction. When he mentioned press passes I was officially sold. On the surface… Continue reading 5 Nerdy Things About The AMP Music Festival
First off, a disclosure. I have never seen the original online Dr. Horrible starring my beloved Neil Patrick Harris (NPH), Nathan Fillion (NF) and Felicia Day (FD). It’s true. As much as I heart Joss Whedon, I have never been big on watching TV online and, to be honest, I’m lucky to have time to… Continue reading Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – Live!
