Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2012

Normally this post would have come out right after the list was announced as it did last year. However, this has been a crazy busy Summer and I just spent 2.5 weeks in New York helping to take care of my two nieces. In short, I’ve had very little free time. Better late than never,… Continue reading Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2012

A collection of random thoughts about A Song of Ice and Fire

I finally finished reading Book 5 of the Song of Ice and Fire series by George RR Martin (which took me an abnormally long time compared to books 1-4).  As I read and finished each book in the series I wrote down my thoughts.  Sometimes they are snippets, sometimes they are discussions I’m having with… Continue reading A collection of random thoughts about A Song of Ice and Fire

7 Guys Worth Nerdgasaming Over

My sister-in-law and I were at WonderCon on Friday and somehow we got on the topic of “Cheat Sheets.” And no, I’m not talking about the school variety. The “Cheat Sheet” I’m referring to is a list of people you’re allowed to get it on with and your significant other can’t hold it against you. … Continue reading 7 Guys Worth Nerdgasaming Over

Best Nerdy Cakes Ever

I’m not gonna lie, I’m more of a pie girl than a cake girl…Mmmmmm…rhubarb….but one thing that cake has going for it that pie doesn’t is it’s artistic possibilities.  Seriously, you can do ANYTHING with cake.  As a Food Network afficianado I know this for a fact. A friend recently sent me a photo of… Continue reading Best Nerdy Cakes Ever

Remembering the Great Bird of the Galaxy… (I miss you, Gene Roddenberry)

October is a bittersweet month for me.  On one hand, there’s Halloween and all of the fun festivities that the holiday entails.  But October is the month when several of my loved ones have passed away so there’s also a lot of sadness.  Even though I never met him personally, the one anniversary of someone unrelated… Continue reading Remembering the Great Bird of the Galaxy… (I miss you, Gene Roddenberry)

15 Best Halloween Costumes for your Pet

Normally I’m very much opposed to people dressing up their pets.  The animals look miserable and I pity both them and their human parents who are obviously missing some kind of nutrient in their diets that turns them into crazy people who spend tons of money on clothes for animals who don’t need or want… Continue reading 15 Best Halloween Costumes for your Pet

5 Nerdy Things About The AMP Music Festival

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

Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2011

We’ve pretty much established that I appreciate hotness, be it male or female, human or alien.  I only bat for one team but that doesn’t mean I can’t understand the other team’s perspective. My 10 Hottest Babes of Sci-Fi post is by far the most read HNG entry I’ve ever written and it’s not exactly a… Continue reading Lucky 13: Maxim’s Hot Nerd Women of 2011
