Marvel Phase 3 Viewing Plan0

Back in March and April, the husband and I decided that we needed to watch all the Marvel movies through, in order, to prepare for Captain America: Civil War. It was a great idea, Civil War referenced many important concepts from the earlier movies, especially the original Captain America and Iron Man movies.   Fast […]

So … I Liked the New Star Trek Movie0

I might spoil things. I’m not being careful here. First of all, let me tell you, I despised Into Darkness. Almost everything about Into Darkness was wrong. The tone of the movie was problematic and the continuous rising action gave us no chance to consider the characters. They chose to punch instead of solve problems […]

DC Closet Halloween0

I’m a busy person. Crazy busy. So, even though we’d been talking about Halloween for months, I had no idea what I was going to do for a costume. It didn’t help that we were holding the part at our place, so I spent a large portion of the day cleaning and prepping.     So, […]

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 […]

#Digiwrimo Day 12: PAX East0

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 […]
