Hello hello!

I’m gonna be totally basic for a minute and say, Holy crap, it’s the end October! Time seems to move so much faster when you get older. It’s even gotten a little bit chillier in the morning here. Which is a good thing because that means I get to wear my Gryffindor jacket when I walk my daughters to school. Continue reading

Life Lately

Hello hello!

Ready for some kind-of-random-but-not-really stuff? Good.

Last month I said goodbye to my favorite Doctor Who companion, Clara Oswald. It’s kind of embarassing, but I totally balled my eyes out at the end of Face the Raven. I related to Clara so much and loved her relationship with Twelve (who has become my favorite Doctor). I’m hoping for a comic or graphic novel featuring her adventures with Me to come out.

I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Twice. Okay, guys, I wasn’t a die hard Star Wars fan prior to this movie, but I loved it. Rey is awesome. I want a BB-8. And #FinnPoe4Eva.

My youngest started reading. My husband and I haven’t been teaching her. I think she’s been learning how to read from PBS shows.

She wants to be an astronaut when she grows up. Her sister wants to be an ice cream tester.

Parks & Rec is still one of my favorite shows to binge watch.

I made a pie. It looked horrible but tasted really good.

I’m planning a summer adventure for my family. It’s stressful (figuring out lodging and transportation costs is a big fat bummer) but it’s fun to look up things we might be able to see, do, and eat.

How are things going with you?

Although some people think all geeks are into the same things, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our interests are vast and varied. Which is why I was totally stoked when the lovely Mariko of Gamer Wife¬†started #GeekyConfessions. Continue reading
