No One Down Here Except the FBI’s Most Unwanted0

Who is excited that the X-Files is coming back!? Oh, oh, oh, me! I am! I’ve been an X-Files fan since at least the mid-90s. I can’t remember when exactly I started watching or how I got into it, but by my freshman year of high school (1996) it was definitely an important part of […]

Biology: The Musical1

I got halfway through DiGiWriMo, which for me is not half bad! November is a tough month. Anyway, new year, new posts! So, today I am wearing my “Science, The Musical” T-shirt. I love it, but it has a few issues. First of all, it’s more “Physics, The Musical” than Science and it’s all men. […]

#Digiwrimo Day 16: Zombies0

One of the things that I have clearly learned from my attempt at posting every day in November is that I am not very good at doing things every day. I may have already known that, but now I’m certain. I need to set an alarm or something. On three separate devices. Sometimes, I’m amazed […]

I will be seeing people at PAX East again this year, along with my Strategic Gaming Club! We actually got quite lucky in picking up tickets this year. I had a whole plan with student minions at my beck and call to jump on line and get in queue for PAX East tickets. Last year, […]

#Digiwrimo Day 11: Canon and Fanon0

So, I just watched the Supernatural 200th episode, which did their annual 4th wall breaking fandom episode. However, they brought up some interesting aspects of canon that I thought I would use as my post today. My partner and I have some differences of opinion on where canon ends and other things begin. He’s a […]

#Digiwrimo Day 9: 13.10

Well, I missed another day, but I have an excuse this time. Last night, I ran a half-marathon. That’s 13.1 miles. My feet hurt. I ran the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon. It’s a pretty fun race. You get to run around three Disney parks, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT. Then you get […]

#Digiwrimo Day 7: Wearing My Nerd Proudly0

I got into a conversation with one of my students recently when I noted that all the nerd and otakus hang out in the back of our snack bar area. He said something along the lines of: Otaku is like an insult. I replied with something along the lines of: It’s exactly the same type […]

#Digiwrimo Day 6: How to Train Your Puppy0

In March, my partnerĀ and I adopted a 9 week old black pug. Since then, every moment of our lives has been alternating between “OMG this dog is crazy annoying!” and “OMG this dog is so freakin’ adorable!”. So, we have been taking training classes. Our pug, Macklin (Burt Macklin), is super duper smart, that’s not […]

#Digiwrimo Day 4-1: Ooops … Disney Geek-Out!0

Whoops! I already missed a day. I’m bad at this thing. I clearly need to make this a calendar alert or something so I remember. I suppose that’s the point, right, so that I make it a habit to be writing daily, and it isn’t yet. So, I’m going to Disney World this weekend! I’m […]
