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!

Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

About a week before The Avengers came out in theatres I participated in a World’s Best Podcast discussion about the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. We discussed Hulk (briefly), The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America. We also got into why the Marvel movies seem to be outdoing the DC movies (with… Continue reading Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

Avengers Assemble!

OMFG. I don’t know how else to adequately describe how much I loved this movie. I saw The Avengers twice in 2 days.  The first time after an epic all-day Marvel Movie Marathon with my NBFF Geek Outlaw. And the second time on Sunday morning with my Mom and SO. Afterwards we went to Smash Burger… Continue reading Avengers Assemble!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – OH MY!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a nerd in possession of an illness must go on a Jane Austen bender. At least it does for this nerd. For someone who fancies themselves a writer (or an aspiring one at least) I don’t write nearly enough about books. Which is strange considering the rate in… Continue reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – OH MY!

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)

100th HNG POST!! “Ask a Nerd Girl”

Wow.  This is my 100th blog post.  It kinda crept up on me.  I wasn’t sure what to do to mark this momentous (for me, at least) occasion.  Then I thought, hey! I’ll make it about the fans! They can ask whatever questions they want and I’ll give them advice or whatever.  People are always… Continue reading 100th HNG POST!! “Ask a Nerd Girl”

A collection of random thoughts about A Song of Ice and Fire

I finally finished reading Book 5 of the Song of Ice and Fire series by George RR Martin (which took me an abnormally long time compared to books 1-4).  As I read and finished each book in the series I wrote down my thoughts.  Sometimes they are snippets, sometimes they are discussions I’m having with… Continue reading A collection of random thoughts about A Song of Ice and Fire

Daredevil Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

About a month ago I got an email from Isaac over at World’s Best Podcast asking me if I’d like to participate in the occasional podcast session.  I’ve never done a podcast before so I said I would be delighted!  After a meet and greet via Skype it was decided that my first guest appearance… Continue reading Daredevil Podcast (World’s Best Podcast)

Thirsty Games – The Hunger Games Drinking Game

Note from HNG: Hey Nerds and Nerdettes, your favorite virtual drinking buddy is back!  You may remember Vivian’s fantastic Firefly Drinking Game post (or not, depending on how drunk you got while playing it) and this time she’s created a Hunger Games Drinking Game that will make you Rue the day you didn’t drink while reading… Continue reading Thirsty Games – The Hunger Games Drinking Game

Hungry for some Hunger Games (movie edition)

Ok seriously, I don’t know wtf was up with the audience in my theatre but I couldn’t tell if I was there to watch a movie or at a meeting of the World’s Smallest Bladder Club.  I think the four people in our group were the only people in the entire theatre that didn’t get… Continue reading Hungry for some Hunger Games (movie edition)
