The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth

So my last post was in July. It’s now March, but I’m not even going to address that.

Here’s what I’ve been doing: WORKING a shit ton (and no, I’m not happy about it), hiking (okay, I’ve only  been once since October, but it’s not my fault, winter sucks), yoga-ing (yeah, I know, that’s not a word), reading an insane amount (I don’t really need a parenthesis for this one) and watching an obsessive amount of @midnight (no, my Chris Hardwick obsession has not waned in these past months).

I’ve also been keeping in pretty close contact with my GISHWHES team (you may vaguely remember I did GISHWHES last year and am anxiously awaiting it’s return). We are totally going to win this year, now that we know the ropes.

But mostly I’ve been setting things up. My plan is to quit my job in 2 years (but reserve the right to push it to 6 years if need be) and live completely off of my crafts/arts/writing and other such things (plus whatever my husband can bring in). This working nonsense is for the birds and I WANT OUT.

Look for lots of upcoming posts about my future endeavors (read as, me whining about a bunch of bullshit that I can totally control but am choosing not to.

Until next time, (Which will be,hopefully, sooner than 8 months)

Gishwhes

Huh? Yup. Gishwhes.  Standing for, The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World has Ever Seen, Gishwhes. It’s in it’s third year and is exactly what it sounds like.

You complete in teams of fifteen, with people around the globe, most or all of whom, you’ve never met. For seven days, you create, donate, inspire and generally just make the world more awesome. Here’s the list of items from the list last year.

You may or may not know, that I’m rather socially awkward. I have a general fear of people and often life itself. The world can be scary. But it can also be amazing. I want in; I want out of the scary bubble inside my head.

Thankfully, I found myself on an awesome team, rich with Whovians and Sherlockians, and Winchester Worshippers. Team Allonsy, FTW!

We’re not allowed to post any pictures or video of what we’re doing on social media until the hunt is over, but I promise to come back and update when I can.

If you’re interested in making the world more awesome, or in donating to random acts, the charity that starting this whole crazy adventure, you still have a week to sign up and throw your dignity aside. Death to Normalcy!

 

SDCC and the Crush of Returning to Normal Life

So another year of SDCC has come and gone, and I haven’t been to the party.  Thankfully, Twitter was amazingly awesome with updates and panels and pics (is it too schticky if I add ‘oh my!’ here?)!

I may have to divert some money into getting into NerdHQ stuff if I ever make it the 2700 miles over there. I mean seriously; how freakin’ awesome were  Zac Levi and Nathan Fillion?

With the wrap up of Comic-Con, this means my Twitter feed will get much less interesting for a while. (At least until we get closer to Gishwhes, more about that upcoming)!

So here I am back to entertaining myself. By looking at things like this:

I didn't make this. I'm not that awesome. Sigh

I didn’t make this. I’m not that awesome. Sigh

I have a couple of ‘canceled too soon’ posts coming, along with a bunch of ‘my favorite geek’ and an insane amount of ‘writing’ posts.

I know what you’re thinking (don’t you love how I’m always a mindreader, but I never have any useful knowledge?) I always say I’m gonna do stuff with the blog but than never do, so feel free not to believe me or ignore me entirely.  I deserve that.

But just know:

sorry
