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?
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.
I’m not sure whether to go for more of a Yellow Wallpaper or Captive Cat flavor here. But I have a job that I can do from home. I have remote access. And, yeah… My kid sister is now laid off, well, “on stand-by” so she can get unemployment while they wait and see if… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #646 – Day 3 of my Confinement…
First, if you want to get the nitty gritty on COVID-19, then check out the Ologies episode on it. Super informative. Washington state has closed schools for 6 weeks until April 27th. The small independent airline my sister works for has laid off all their pilots, and has cut the office staff back to 50%.… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #645 – Life in the Time of COVID-19
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…
Yeah, unsurprising after last week’s adventures, my mind turns to mortality, and what happens to our collections of nerd treasure when we die? I’ll probably revisit this one again in upcoming weeks, because I’m going to need to do some research. But I can start with some basics. 1. Make sure your treasure is actually… Read More Geek Girls Rule #638 – Geeks and Mortality
Writing is hard, you guys. I mean, it is, but it isn’t. Writing is easy. For me. I can sit down and whip out 20-30 pages in an afternoon, and then wonder why I can’t feel my feet anymore. In fact, I have started not plugging my computer in when I’m writing so that I… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #636 – Petty Annoyances
This is a thing I say a lot. Usually about the media, or other folks. Today I’m saying this to me. It isn’t every day that you see real, honest to gods proof that something you didn’t do twenty years ago had super negative repercussions, concrete repercussions, that you can’t fucking ignore if you’re a… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #631 – Do Better
