Embracing my inner geek: New Wonder Woman costume & Spidey casting

Lately I’ve been letting my freak flag fly. Tweeting about gaming, and writing at least 4 geek related blog posts that never made it past my drafts folder. Today, however, has been a big day for all of us geeks. (Yes, I wear the label with pride) DC unveiled the Wonder Woman costume for an

Ow

I know, I posted about my triumphant trip to the beach in which I went into the water after being a little traumatized by almost drowning. What I hadn’t discovered yet was that I’d gotten a fairly bad sunburn on my back. I felt warm, sure, and sore. But it was a warm day and

Skimming tweets? Why?

Just a few minutes ago, I logged into Facebook to see that one of my favorite ex-Jungle Cruise Skippers, Dr. David Marley (comedian/professor) had posted this: So the GOP’s plan on stopping Kagan from getting on the Supreme Court is by attacking Thurgood Marshall, the nation’s first African-American Justice. Way to keep it racist, GOP!

And I didn’t die!

We went to the beach today, and had a lovely time. But most importantly, I went into the water. I suppose, some background is needed. While back, I went to Florida with my then future in-laws. We went to Orlando to go to Walt Disney World (and Universal) and went to Daytona Beach. While we

A new laptop!

About three years ago I bought a brand new laptop. It was a Dell, not particularly strong. And I promptly ran that thing into the ground. I used it to play World of Warcraft, and had cooling pads to keep it from overheating on me. Then it died. My brother-in-law (well, one of them) gave

They believe that the reason for the epidemic is the growing number of parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. While it’s mandatory for all school aged children to be

Vacation Planning: the beginning

TheBoy and I are going on a weekend getaway in August, and as soon as the opportunity presented itself (read: my mother-in-law offered to watch the kidlets), we began planning our escape. Vacation planning seems to begin the same way- we start mentioning every location we’ve mentioned wanting to travel that’s within a day’s driving.

The Ultimate Sandwich

So, I got a Flip UltraHD for my birthday. I got it, on the promise that I’d take more videos of my children. But really, I had fond memories of my sister and I, making silly home movies with our camcorder. Somewhere there is a tape with our bizarre version of Wizard of Oz, lip-synching

Not defined by genre.

I like to give myself labels. I’m a mom, a writer, an artist, a gamer and a geek. Okay, I don’t play many video games anymore, but I do try to keep up with game news. However, I don’t think that simply by stating what I am, will give you an idea of who I

It’s the little things. AKA I scream for ice cream

Note: Sorry I don’t have any pictures. The digital camera’s still broken and I can’t get clear pictures on my camera. Boo. It’s not the big things in life that make you happy- it’s the little things. While I’m sure that winning the lotto might make things easier for us financially, I’m quite happy with
