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

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)

Flight Training with the Starship Enterprise

If you read the blog you know that I come from a military family.  This came to me from a family member who was in the military.  Their good friend went through some flight training and was surprised to see that his training included a little assistance from Starfleet!  Some of the information is sensitive so… Continue reading Flight Training with the Starship Enterprise

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

50th HNG POST – A Tribute to my Mama

I wanted to do something special for my 50th blog post but I couldn’t think of what would be worthy.  Then it came to me.  The reason I’m here, literally and nerdally (I think I just coined a new word?) is because of my Mom.  She’s the coolest, most awesome Mom ever.  She’s my best… Continue reading 50th HNG POST – A Tribute to my Mama

Attack of the Top 10 Sci-Fi Mustache’s

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to decide whether or not he wants to sport some facial hair.  Trends have come and gone but one style remains a classic. The mustache. Some men prefer a classic lady tickler, others are more creatively inclined.  The 80’s sparked what I like to… Continue reading Attack of the Top 10 Sci-Fi Mustache’s
