May The 4th Be With You!

May is my favorite month for several reasons. One, it’s my birthday month. May 19th (write it down). Two, it’s Geek Pride Day on the 25th (grab your towel). And Three. Today. Best holiday ever.

Happy Star Wars Day!

Happy Fairy Day!

Me and Twig

According to my spiffy Twig the Fairy calendar, today is Fairy Day! If you know me, you know of my love for all things magical and fantastical and child-like. Twig (who you can see in the above picture – she’s on the left) is my favorite part of all the Renaissance Faires I attend and I always make it a point to find her. More often than not, she is surrounded by children with their parents standing just beyond the circle, oftentimes more awestruck of her than the kids.

Make sure you spread the love and happiness today. You can find out more about the beautiful Twig at her website, facebook, or twitter. Have a happy and glittery Fairy Day!

Happy Picard Day!

“Captain Picard Day is celebrated on June 16th because it is the equivalent date to Stardate 47457.1, mentioned in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode entitled The Pegasus. In that episode, Captain Picard Day is an occasion for the Enterprise to host schoolchildren and show them what Starfleet is like.” – GeeksAreSexy.net

I don’t know about you, but I’ll use any excuse to celebrate that man that is Captain Jean-luc Picard. I will of course be spending the rest of the day listening to the Picard Song on repeat. What are you going to do?

Happy Towel Day!

Need I say more? Mr. Douglas Adams is one of my biggest inspirations and favorite authors. His work has a long-standing of residing on my bookshelves. My favorite is not one of his most popular, though it should be. If you ever get a chance, read Last Chance to See, and catch the BBC series with Stephen Fry. Adams was an amazing author and his legacy will go on forever – to the restaurant at the end of the world even.

Always remember: Don’t panic. We love you D.A. Hope the universe is just as exciting on the other side.

Happy Star Wars Day!

Happy Star Wars day, to all you crazy fans out there! May the 4th be with you! Check out the short Wiki page if you’re not sure what this day is. And don’t forget – there’s another Star Wars day on the 25th of this month. Just another reason why May is my favorite month (other than the fact that it’s my birthday month).

Geekery at its Best (and Hottest)!

I’m one of those rare species referred to as a “Girl Gamer” (though, seriously, I honestly don’t think we’re so rare – I know A LOT of girl gamers and to think that we’re a minority is kind of insulting). My drug game of choice? World of Warcraft. Both Ash and I have been out of commission for the past year I think for lack of funds, but in the coming weeks we’ll be starting up our characters again (the sole reason of my getting an office job is to pay for my addictions, you see). I hesitate to give our out names and server because it is more likely we’ll be switching soon and starting anew since it’s been so long (though I’m not sure I want to give up my Glenwyn Belf quite yet). In any case, I’ll keep you informed (because you care).

The other reason for this post. This:

Because there’s always that slim chance that someone has not seen it, I thought I’d post it (again? I think? I’m pretty sure I already posted this when it first came out but I can’t find the original entry).

Come on. Felicia Day? In character? Hot. (Also, be sure to check out The Guild. Funny stuff.)

10 Geeky Birthday Cakes!

Today is my birthday! So far I’ve spent it sleeping in, getting a breakfast of biscuits and bacon cooked for me, and lounging on the couch watching TV. For lunch, Ash bought me Chinese food and we might end the day with a night watching movies. A quiet, but wonderful birthday.

No cake though. I’ll get that next Monday when we celebrate with my family. I love cake and I think it’s one of the perfect ways to celebrate any occasion. In honor of my birthday, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite geeky birthday cakes online and felt I should share them with you. Of course, now all I want to eat is cake.

Video Games Live & Warcraft!

So I’m listening to WoWcast and they were talking about this and I would give anything to see it live. Check out the trailer for it. It is amazing.

Video Games Live.

I would give anything to go. Their website says they’re coming back to Chicago, but there’s no date for it. What I wouldn’t give for that show… Blows me away, you know? A concert of gaming music. Wow. (Or WoW).

That’s not really Warcraft news but it was mentioned so there.

Update 1.5.2013: Took me six years, but I finally FINALLY got to see Video Games Live here in Austin, TX tonight AND IT WAS AMAZING! Just as great as I thought it would be (and even better).
