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 […]

An Open Post To The CW Executives

Dear CW Executives, You got me. I am fully prepared to admit it and I’m don’t even feel bad.  I resisted, at first, because I’m a grown-up and have grown-up responsibilities. I have a job to work at and books and posts to write and kids to raise.  The stupid dishwasher still doesn’t empty itself […]

One Geek, Two Geek, That Was A Good Week(end)

As it turns out, I did not actually fall off the face of the Earth this past week. Or even into a vat of cookie dough large enough to house all of Wonka’s Oompa Loompas plus a goodly portion of his walnut-testing squirrels, despite the fact that I’ve done nothing but think of making cookies […]

2014 Summer Movie Blowout In Many Many Words

I guess it’s kind of a thing now.  I mean, not quite the same kind of thing you meant when you were 13 and said (with your voice full of teenager my-life-is-over woe), “Janie PerfectHairAndEyesAndSkin starting going out with Tommy FlashingSmileFootballHero last night so I guess they’re, like, I dunno, a thing now or whatever.”  […]
