The Annual Magic: The Gathering Punishing

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before, but I’m a big fan of playing Magic: The Gathering. You know, that card game all the nerds like. Oh, don’t look so surprised. I’m a huge nerd. Pretty sure I’ve made that abundantly clear already. Of course, then, I like M:TG, and as a card-carrying nerd, […]

A Dark Night For The Dark Knight

Sitting out on the patio a little later than usual tonight, but given that today’s socks are in honor of everyone’s favorite Dark Knight, it seemed to make sense*. The twist is that’s not just a reference to Batman, the character. I mean, sure, who doesn’t love the Caped Crusader and his wacky crime-fighting, but […]

Constellations And Canine Considerations

The Puddinette and I sat out on the patio last night when it became inexplicably temperate for one glorious night, giving us a brief moment of respite from this year’s July Hellscape. Being the nerds we are, of course, we broke out a sky view app on my phone, which identified for us all the […]

A Rocket-based Soapbox

I’m pretty sure I’m keeping at least one pair of my NASA socks. Why would I, you ask, when I have SO many others to choose from? Because, when I was a kid, NASA meant a LOT to me. In fact, from the time my parents were kids to my own childhood, NASA represented the […]

Life Goals Shaded Blue

I’m a gigantic nerd, so obviously I fell in love with today’s pair of socks pretty much immediately because they reminded me of a blue-tinted circuit diagram. Plus also, Tron. I can neither confirm nor deny that I purchased a 6-pack of predominantly blue-colored socks in order to acquire this one pair. Also (because I’m […]

All The Nerdy Reminiscing

I can’t decide if these remind me more of the “City Lights” cutouts from that one Homecoming dance, a circuit board, or playing Ms. Pac-man (which any reasonable video game enthusiast will admit was objectively the best of the Pac-Man games). They kind of look like the inside of the Death Star too. Regardless, they […]

Lies, Damned Lies, and Star Wars

I seem to recall swearing up and down not even a month ago that I was going to reset my evening activity schedule and commit to writing and/or reading instead of spending three hours staring, slack-jawed, at a screen full of bright colors and explosions. In fact, there’s probably evidence of said promise in the […]

Full Disclosure

So, how’s that whole “write more/complain less” thing working out for me?  Well, I will readily admit I haven’t been able to write something new Every. Single. Day. I’m eyeballs deep in a brand new work project that has me writing software like a maniac. Or a fiend, even. Possibly even a maniac fiend! But […]

A Haiku For Web Development Nerds

Spent my day knee-deep, Model View Controller-ing Brain’s gone all to mush.

Amazon Sends You The Darnedest Things

   We recently ordered a USB hookup with a Bluetooth extension for my car. You know, so I can pretend my 8 year old Gunmetal Gray Honda Accord Middle Aged Man Sedan is super cool and hip and able to play the Apple Musics that all the kids are into these days. The Puddinette got […]
