Yet again the Geek Husband What Rules saves my life by not letting me follow through on impulse buys. The other day he was on Wish and saw a pair of pajama type pants printed with Nicholas Cage’s face all over them. My immediate instinct was, “How much are they? I am totally buying them… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #657 – Some Sort of Reviews
I know I’ve talked about the original Battlestar Galactica before, I mean, not even heavy narcotics could help that. The Martian just tried to watch the Buck Rogers TV show from the late 70s/early 80s. I think he lasted almost an episode. About 2/3 of the way through he came out to rant. There was… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #656 – Things That Have Not Aged Well.
First, has anyone else encountered Eugene in ACNH? He’s a Koala, who dresses like the Rat Pack, and feels a little, um, sleazy? In related news, my avatar in that game is currently dressed like a Korean Boy Band member. Sooo, my new obsession is Museum Secrets (Amazon Associates link) on Amazon Prime Video.

Dad’s about halfway through his radiation treatments, which means that he and my mom drive into downtown Seattle every weekday and go to a hospital, which is a risk, but it’s that or the potential return of his brain tumor, soooo… They’re being super careful at the hospital. Ok, so I am more likely to… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #654 – Updates and Socializing in a Time of Social-Distancing
Hey, mostly this is a check in with everyone to see how you’re doing, what you’re occupying your time with, and a general state of the world. We’re all still healthy in Nördhöll, as the Martian spells it, knock on wood. Although we’re playing everyone’s least favorite game show right now: Is It Seasonal Allergies… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #653 – Be Gentle With Yourself and Others
I kind of forgot it was Easter. See, for decades of my life, Easter happened when we were at Norwescon. So, yeah, it kind of completely slipped my mind, with Norwescon being canceled. Anyway, for “Bunny Day” in ACNH, there’s Zipper the Bunny. He is obviously another animal in a Bunny suit, who hates his… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #652 – Happy Easter, Solstice, Zombie God day!
So, I’ve been playing Pokemon Go off and on since it went live, and prior to the past week I had managed to catch one, maybe two Dittos over the course of how many years? Four? This past week I have captured at least two dittos a day, and Sunday I captured five or six.… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #651 – Pokemon Go! Anyone else notice more Dittos?
