The Nerdy Nine – In Memoriam 2011

It’s that time of year again. The time when we pay homage to those who passed away in 2011. Last year I wrote an In Memoriam post that turned out to be very therapeutic for me because I wrote about the loss of my step-dad. It’s been over a year now and I still can’t… Continue reading The Nerdy Nine – In Memoriam 2011

Cooking with Hot Nerd Girl: Ambrosia

Remember when I told you that cooking was NOT one of my many talents?  Well, it’s about to become very obvious to you.  The Butterbeer recipe was the last one we shot so I had kind of gotten in to the swing of things by then (and had a few drinks…ahem).  Ambrosia, on the other… Continue reading Cooking with Hot Nerd Girl: Ambrosia

Trek Nation and the Next Generation of Greatness

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

7 Nerdy Things From Hot Nerd Girl’s Office

A while back (maybe September?) I posted on the Hot Nerd Girl facebook page that I was having a hard time figuring out how to organize all of my Star Trek stuff in my office.  The fans a) thought it was a really great problem to have and b) demanded pictures.  I promised I would… Continue reading 7 Nerdy Things From Hot Nerd Girl’s Office

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era

Yes, I cried. Quite a bit at one point. And while the scenes were touching and poignant and emotional and all that good stuff, a large part of it was a sense of mourning that this was it.  No more books and now, no more movies either.  The posters and billboards plastered everywhere are clear:… Continue reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era

The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

Ugh.  I’m home sick today.  No bueno. I took the day off from work and was going to take the day off from blogging (especially since no nerdy movies came out this past weekend) but after catching up on Falling Skies and being asked my thoughts about it…well…it seems I just can’t quit you.  Not… Continue reading The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

Super 8 + DBox = DBest movie experience ever

Alien movies are pretty much universally awesome.  Even the bad ones have something going for them in the form of a grotesque, salivating creature bent on devouring some random buxom blond.  Most of the time though, alien movies are just kick ass.  When making an alien movie, you have two choices.  Make the alien friendly… Continue reading Super 8 + DBox = DBest movie experience ever

I went to the future birthplace of James Tiberius Kirk

I mentioned on the facebook page last week that I would be MIA for a few days while I attended my cousin’s wedding in Iowa.  I hadn’t planned on doing anything non-wedding related but when my Mom and I found ourselves with a perfectly good Monday and nothing to fill it with there was really… Continue reading I went to the future birthplace of James Tiberius Kirk

25 Take Aways: A Battlestar Galactica Wrap Up

A while back I admitted to being a late bloomer to the greatness that is Battlestar Galactica…cause seriously, I’m waaaaaay too busy to watch every single TV show that comes out, nerdy or not.  Aside from developing an unhealthy addiction to speed in order to eek a few more hours out of my day, my… Continue reading 25 Take Aways: A Battlestar Galactica Wrap Up

Star Trek: The Exhibition

It is universally known that I have the most adorable nephew on the planet.  If you were not aware of this, then you need only meet him to realize that I am absolutely correct when I make this declaration. Now that we’ve established his awesomeness, you can see why I would try to hang out… Continue reading Star Trek: The Exhibition
