This has been my craziest Summer ever. I feel like I’m never home and I pretty much haven’t been since the beginning of June. Some of the reasons have been great (weddings, visiting new family members, hiking through Yosemite) and some of them have been sad (Grandma’s funeral) but all of them have been very… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 4 – Sunday Shenanigans
I’ve been struggling to figure out how best to showcase my Comic Con shenanigans because I have over a thousand pictures taken over the course of 3 days. I did a post dedicated to the Panels and thought I might do posts dedicated to Costumes, Celebs, Exhibition Floor, etc. but no matter how I worked… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 2 – Friday Shenanigans
The quality of George Lucas’ film making skills have been the subject of much debate for the past decade. But no one can deny the fact that 35 years ago today he changed the world as we know it. Star Wars was a tour de force and geekdom will forever be in his debt. Thank you… Continue reading Happy 35th Anniversary Star Wars
The first time I went to WonderCon was way back in 2002 while I was in college in San Francisco. I was the only girl in the group and was rocking my Batman Underoos and a very ill-fitting SFSU sweatshirt.

At first I didn’t that think our little Leap Day trip to Disneyland was nerdy enough to write about. Then I thought about the fact that I stayed up all night for a history-making 24 hour Disney marathon and I realized that this is about as nerdy as it gets. Our little group chose a… Continue reading My Star Wars Leap Day Night Thing at Disneyland
I don’t throw parties very often but when I do I usually pull them off pretty well. I hadn’t had a birthday party since I turned 21 so I figured it was as good a time as any to put one on. Naturally, it had to be nerd-themed. The invite specified that costumes were required… Continue reading HNG’s Birthday Party Bonanza!
My Dad came to SoCal to visit my brother and I and being the family o’ nerd that we are, we decided to go to the Discovery Science Center’s Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit in Santa Ana. I’ve always wanted to visit the giant black cube that looks suspiciously Borg-like so this was… Continue reading The Star Wars Experience
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
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
Happy Star Wars Day everybody!
