I Think I’m Turning 29

Earlier this month, I officially entered the final year of my 20s. It seems like only yesterday that I was a newly-minted 20-year-old: excited that I was no longer a teenager but also terrified about going off to college and living on my own. It seemed like there were so many ways a could fail […]

July 4th Be With You

I know many AmericansĀ are probably celebrating Independence Day by watching the 1996 Will Smith movie of the same name (or the recently released sequel), but not me. When I realized that all my Star Wars shirts were red, white, and blue, I knew that I’d be celebrating America’s birthday with Luke, Leia, Han, andĀ the rest […]

A Nerdier New Year

So it turns out that one of my statements last time should have had a little asterisk next to it. Despite proclamations that I would be foregoing my annual compulsion to make resolutions, I’ve recently had a change of heart. Over on Geek & Sundry, Felicia Day posted a video evangelizing the idea of Geek […]

Project “New Leaf”

As 2013 came to a close late last month, I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could make the most of the coming year. I could have devoted my efforts towards a new set of resolutions, as I typically do, but to be honest they would have closely mirrored the set I […]

The 12 Days of Christmas: Hipster Edition!!

I don’t remember how this all started, but my coworkers and I were discussing last week what a hipster version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” would be like. You all know what a hipster is, right? They’re those urban 20/30-somethings that “value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, […]

Pi Day Lament

Today is March 14, or as geeks around the world know it: Pi Day. This incredibly nerdy holiday is typically celebrated by consuming large amounts of pie, be it cherry, apple, or even lemon meringue. And of course, the more pie one consumes on Pi Day, the better, although eating 3.14 pies is obviously the […]

2012: It’s Resolution Time!!

The year 2012 has officially arrived, and that means it’s time for me to post my resolutions for this year. Rather than just list my goals for the year – as I’ve done in the past – I thought I’d give a little explanation on why I’m resolved to make these goals a reality. So […]

I Feel Like a Christmas Movie Hipster

“Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…” I have been watching Die Hard on Christmas for years. It’s a personal tradition, and not unlike how some people can;t let the holidays go by without sitting through A Christmas Story or those old Rankin Bass specials from the 70s. Why Die […]

How I Became The Doctor

Many apologies for the delay. Halloween was two weeks ago, and I’m only now getting around to writing about it. When I first wrote about my plans to be The 11th Doctor for Halloween, my costume was well on its was to completion. In fact, it turned out that the only item I had left […]
