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

Long Beach Comic Con wrap-up 2011

On Saturday I went to Long Beach Comic Con, a fairly young comic book convention that is small enough that comic books *GASP!* are still the primary focus. Imagine that. Anyhooters, it was pretty epic for me because I attended as a “professional” aka a member of the press.  My list of press passes has been steadily… Continue reading Long Beach Comic Con wrap-up 2011

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)
