“Ask a Roddenberry” – Interview with Rod Roddenberry

Every time I see Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry I become a bigger fan of him. He’s genuinely friendly and very easy to talk to. This interview was conducted on Saturday at San Diego Comic Con, hence my Thor costume, crazy makeup and obvious lack of sleep. I got back from my Grandma’s funeral a day and a… Continue reading “Ask a Roddenberry” – Interview with Rod Roddenberry

Star Trek night at Dodger Stadium

I’m that rare combination of girl who is a huge nerd but is also a big sports fan. I’m pretty much in 7th heaven right now with the Olympics being on. My favorite non-Olympic sports to watch are football and baseball. I’ve never been to a professional football game (it’s on the bucket list) but… Continue reading Star Trek night at Dodger Stadium

San Diego Comic Con, Part 1 – The Panels

I promised detailed blogs about Comic Con and by golly, I aim to keep that promise. There’s just one problem. There’s waaaay too much for just one post. I tried. I’ve gone through approx. 1000 pictures (no joke) and narrowed them down to the best of the best and even then I was left with… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 1 – The Panels

Star Trek Captains Podcast (Ten Forward)

This is a very sleep deprived HNG coming to you from New York City. I’m here visiting my nieces and having a great time with them. Unfortunately for me, I usually go to bed around midnight-2:00am California time. Combine my sleeping habits with the time zone change and my body wants to go to sleep… Continue reading Star Trek Captains Podcast (Ten Forward)

“Ask a Foley Artist” – Interview with Dean Minnerly

As I mentioned on the HNG facebook page, I did an interview with Dean Minnerly, Foley Artist for Universal Studios. I also mentioned that he is my stepdad. Now, I should probably offer a quick explanation because I talk about my parents a lot and it can get a bit confusing because I have 6… Continue reading “Ask a Foley Artist” – Interview with Dean Minnerly

You sunk my Battleship!

I use to play Battleship with my brother for hours on end when we were kids. Moving our little red pegs around and gleefully shouting “you sunk my battleship!” It was a fun way to connect with our Dad when he was off on WestPacs. We kept it readily available at all times as demonstrated… Continue reading You sunk my Battleship!

Star Trek Podcast (Ten Forward)

I’m sick for the second time in a week and I have a gopher that is destroying my yard and my life.  So lame.  Just before I got sick the first time I participated in a Star Trek discussion with Isaac and Mark over at World’s Best Podcast for a new section of the podcast they… Continue reading Star Trek Podcast (Ten Forward)

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

My Star Wars Leap Day Night Thing at Disneyland

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
