Ok, so whoever had Thursday night in the pool for “How long it took me to break down and buy the new Animal Crossing game?” wins. It arrived on Friday. I managed to get through my work day without opening it. But once I hit that 8 hour mark, I opened it, borrowed the Martian’s… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #649 – Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The things I do for you people. So, Ogre and I spent all of Monday night reading synopses on every streaming service the household has and not actually watching anything. So tonight (Tuesday) I say, “Seriously, we have to watch something. Because I can’t just keep bitching about social isolation and other life bullshit. And… Read More Geek Girls Rule #648 – Review: RiffTrax The Sword and The Sorcerer
Currently, still healthy. Cats are ecstatic. I can log in remotely on my Mac, but cannot get to my desktop. I should be able to, but that hasn’t worked, and I need to try again on my PC.

Literally, BleedingCool and Comic Book News are the only two places discussing this after the initial splash. And no matter how often I block Bleeding Cool, they keep showing up on my Google feed when I open the browser. Seriously. I keep hitting “NOT THIS PAGE!” But, there it is. Sigh. Now, the rumor mill… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #644 – DC Comics will be FINE.
Cat De-Sharpening Day! Today (Sunday) was the day I dragged the nail trimmers out and victimized cats. Moose does something I had never seen a cat do before… He clenches his hind feet into tight little fists that it is really hard to extract claws from to trim them. Ayla just bit me. The Enemy… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #643 – Everyone’s Least Favorite Holiday…
How many of you remember The Andromeda Strain? It’s not great, but it is entertaining. I couldn’t get through reading it, but I did listen to an audiobook version when I was driving back and forth over the pass a lot. It was fun, very much in the vein of popcorn and beer “thriller” that… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #642 – Life Inside a Michael Crichton Novel
Ok, so we finished watching the rest of the Harley Quinn series on DC Unlimited. While it does have it’s problematic issues (depictions of many villains being Jewish, for one), there was a lot in the series that I did like. Harley’s liberation from the Joker was fantastic, and the bond of friendship between Harley… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #641 – The last episode of Harley Quinn and New Colored Pencils
