Just a quick note...

Still taking it easy because I promised myself a week of not being "on" in my GGD work persona. Mainly because I hate doing any sort of work or social media if I can't be authentic and right now I'm kind of a bummer.

However, I do have a highlight from the last few days.

As part of my dealing with things, I went down to Palm Springs to spend time with my mom. During the trip we spent some time at the Spa hotel and my mom was reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

My mom is a Regency novel connoisseur and has read the original, so there was something exceptionally life affirming about my mom chatting away with me about Lady Catherine and ninjas and characters discussing tasty brains.

I'm not sure why, but it really made me very happy.

For my Dad. I found a great pic of us both.

Okay, so we weren't together technically. But I still think he would have appreciated this. 



I may be quiet for a bit...

Lost my dad very suddenly yesterday. And I just don't have it in me to try and fake a smile and "soldier on" as far as my social media life goes. I've always tried to be as authentic as possible, so it's better to just take my time to grieve and be silent for a while.

I hope you'll be here when I find my smile again. If not, I understand ;*

A Dating Profile That Screams "I Won't Murder You".

This may be the best dating profile ever. And, as disclaimed by the source link, I have no idea how old it is. It's new to me. Enjoy and share the murder love.


Two quick thoughts:

1) Now I actually want to meet this guy.

2) I owe Joe Peacock a glass of Macallan 18 for sending me the link. (Oh and, if you're not reading him, you should. He's a snarky bastard. ::grin:: In a good way)

See the bigger version after the break.

Age & Geek Activated ADHD Is A Real Crisis.

My mom sent me this and, while it perfectly explains how she can never find her glasses or the remote, I see a little of myself in the future.

Maybe there's a Geek Activated ADHD as well? What am I saying. There is. It just involves 3 remotes, a laptop, a smartphone and an XBox!

Yes, I'm Posting About The Kurt/Blaine Kiss On #glee

I love this reaction of the Kurt/Blaine kiss on Glee. Actually, the reaction to the entire scene, their ages, the fact that it's guys and gals and, well...heck, just all of it.

Love is love and sweet is sweet and that kiss was gorgeous.

I Amuse Myself With This Pic. Is That So Wrong?



I took this to show off the Nexus-6 hoodie for the Fashionably Geek contest we're doin'.

But, y'know, I'm just so happy with myself on a geek level for this image that I wanted to post it again.

::grin:: It just makes me smile on so many geek levels.

The rest of the text says this...



Tyrell would be proud.

A Quick Post For Japan and Some Maru & Android Love. #japan

Just a reminder, that it doesn't take more than a minute to text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross or visit their website to donate and help the people of Japan as they deal with the tsunami.

Two things from Japan that are a smile in the midst of so much havoc.

They Say If You Can't Say Anything Nice, Don't Say Anything At All. (Political)

I should likely be blogging something upbeat or geeky or..I dunno. But I'm just not up for it. I'm upset and, because I'm not going to be able to go into it without really unloading, I'm just going to post this pic.



I'm extremely peeved about what's happening in the world regarding the concentrated efforts to diminish unions.

My Moral Outrage Button Is Broken (Semi-Rant)

I have no idea why I'm so busy posting today. I feel like I've been on semi auto-pilot for a while now. It's likely due to the fact that I've been battling some sort of fatigue/illness/alien invasion that we can't quite pinpoint yet., but I have a feeling it's also due to the fact that my brain is just...tired.

There have been so many things going on in the world recently. Amazing, terrifying, world changing, intellectually frustrating things. From countries fighting for independence to Republicans literally trying to make miscarriages a crime. I mean, every day there's some major things happening that makes me react and, as the days go on, I can't tell any more just how much my reacting is actually going to do or what good it will cause.

During the presidential press conference today, a reporter asked the president about Libya and the NFL lockout in the same question.

The NFL lockout? Wait, you want to ask a question about a union fighting for rights and, instead of asking if the president is going to intervene in Wisconsin, you ask about the NFL? Now, I'm not saying the NFL isn't important and they have reasons for their disputes with management, but how in the heck do the financial lives of people who make millions of dollars trump the financial lives of people in the public sector who have been protesting to keep their collective bargaining rights?

Oh right, because the NFL is American and the story isn't 15 days old. Still, 15 days of a protest should be more newsworthy, right? Or is my moral outrage meter off? Should I worry more about the NFL than the women in South Dakota? Or should I give more attention to the shooting in Germany? Or..

I'm having a hard time trying to wrap my head around the fact that the things I'm upset about. Things like women's reproductive rights and the fact that more and more people think Obama was born in Kenya, or that NASA gets grief for the small amount of funding it receives or that WIC should get cut over branding on a NASCAR racer's bumper...

I just...my moral outrage button is worn out.

So I'm posting pics and videos and hoping that, in the end, somewhere I'll get my energy back and be able to get it working again.

Until then, will you guys try and be outraged for me?

Dear Internet. I love you. Nerds of the world. This is #winning



Zombies May Be Eating My Brain, If Not My Arm

My insane ickness crud is still eating my brain, so I went in search of something to post.

The Mary Sue saved me by poting this awesomeness from Neatorama.

Between my Zombie Ants post today and this, I'm starting to worry about what this illness is that I have. Maybe I'm infected with Zombie spores....

"Troopers: Forcefield" ::grin:: Just Watch It.

One of the reasons I adore Joanna Robinson from Pajiba is that she's a geek babe after my own heart. She shot me this link today and, yes, I giggled.

This is "Troopers: Forcefield" from the folks at College Humor. I know Vulture was excited about Aubrey Plaza on this one, but I'm actually kind of majorly in crush with the troopers.



Granted, I'll always love Troops best, but this was chortle worthy this morning for sure.
