“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.

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

Cooking with Hot Nerd Girl: Klingon Blood Wine

Nothing says “party” like a large punch bowl full of fresh blood wine. Blood Wine is the favorite alcoholic beverage of the Klingons, a race of warrior aliens from the planet Qo’noS.  Originally an enemy of the Federation, the Klingons have been allies for quite some time.  Just don’t ask them about how their foreheads went from being smooth… Continue reading Cooking with Hot Nerd Girl: Klingon Blood Wine

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.
