Star Wars Slave Leia Photoshoot

Depending on how long you’ve been following, you may or may not remember that we raised money to get me into a bikini like the one Princess Leia wore in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The donations came in and the costume was purchased.  It took a while to line up the photo shoot… Continue reading Star Wars Slave Leia Photoshoot

Let’s do the time warp again

I attended a friend’s birthday party over the weekend that had a 1930’s theme.  Next thing I know, I’m in a room full of gorgeously dressed gorgeous people in authentic 1930’s formal attire. Naturally that got me thinking about time travel. Because, really, what nerd brain wouldn’t go straight to Captain Kirk in City on… Continue reading Let’s do the time warp again

Ghostbusters: my date with Peck and Slimer

So my friend Hayden is slightly (and when I say slightly I mean majorly) obsessed with Ghostbusters.  We once drove all the way downtown to a tech convention just to see Ecto-1 parked outside.  We stayed just long enough to take pictures and chat with the owner and then left.  Then we got up early… Continue reading Ghostbusters: my date with Peck and Slimer

The Linda Hamilton Chronicles

So, it turns out that a lot of people dig Linda Hamilton.  Either that or they just search for her a lot.  Ms. Hamilton has consistently been one of the top searched for people on the Hot Nerd Girl Blog. I’m not gonna lie, this perplexes me just a little. Not because I don’t think… Continue reading The Linda Hamilton Chronicles

10 Hottest Babes of Sci-Fi

There is nothing quite like seeing a hot chick in a hot outfit kicking some alien ass. Maybe it’s the funky hairdos, or the skin tight outfits, or the technobabble being spoken by a pair of ruby red lips. I don’t know, but can you honestly tell me that there’s anything greater? Honestly. Honestly. I… Continue reading 10 Hottest Babes of Sci-Fi

I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!

I know I’ve made a big to-do about how Zombies freak me out and how I’ve had to institute a self-ban of “The Walking Dead” and all that fun, f’d up stuff.  But they really are the only thing that freaks me out (ok, that’s a sort of lie, I’m a little freaked out by… Continue reading I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!

Halloween costume winner

It was neck and neck between the Star Trek Starfleet uniform and Rafael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but ultimately, Star Trek edged out TMNT.  Which is apparently a good thing after reading this article: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20021081-1.html I know I said I was thinking about getting the new/old uniform but, well, time is short and I… Continue reading Halloween costume winner

I met Dan Aykroyd on Saturday

This is cool for many reasons. It’s Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters 3 is really starting to make headway My friend and fellow nerd, Hayden, is probably the biggest Ghostbusters geek in California, if not the country Ghostbusters 3 is really starting to make headway There’s a chance he’s going to put Hayden to work His vodka,… Continue reading I met Dan Aykroyd on Saturday

Hello? Is there anybody out there?

I’m inspired by last week’s news of the “Goldilock Planet” to write about extraterrestrial life and my absolute certainty that we are not alone in this universe.  If you haven’t read about it you can find it here: http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/09/29/5202633-alien-planet-looks-just-right-for-life In another news story out this week, more than 120 ex-Air Force personnel claim to have… Continue reading Hello?

Red shirt, blue shirt, gold shirt, no shirt

Now there’s a Dr. Suess book I could get behind. Poor, poor redshirts. They never stand a chance. If I was a gal going in to Starfleet Academy in the year 2267, I would request a job that required a blue or gold uniform.  Why were the redshirts always the first to go?  I could… Continue reading Red shirt, blue shirt, gold shirt, no shirt
