Geek Girl’s Guide: Just Enough About Football to Talk About The Big Game

Don’t know a thing about football? Invited to a party to watch The Big Game? Don’t worry, I’ll give you enough information here to carry on a conversation. Let’s face it, even people who never watch football tune in to watch The Big Game, even though we might only be interested in the commercials or halftime. (I’m talking to men and women here. Ditch the stereotypes!)

I grew up in the South, so I was born into a football loving culture. I think it might even be required by law to love the sport there. Red- 24! Red 24! Hut! Hut! Hike! (more on this later).

Binary System Podcast #24 – WTNV Episode #81 “After 3327″

There’s a really interesting lecture going on at Night Vale’s Museum of Forbidden Technologies (which Elizabeth and Kathryn will now refer to as “MOFT”, because we’re easy to amuse.) Unfortunately the lecturer has removed his burlap sack and disabled the white noise generator, so museum patrons can actually hear the forbidden technologies he’s talking about. That’s…not good.

Review – Batman: Bad Blood

While I’m not the only one that enjoys a solid Batman story, there is something to be said about over saturation of any one character.

Review: Letters To Zell

My wedding is going to be awesome. In two short weeks, I’ll walk down the aisle with a man I don’t love, flanked by friends who aren’t speaking to me, and, afterward, I’ll celebrate by killing my stepmother.

I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to come…

The main characters of Camille Griep’s first novel Letters to Zell would probably hear the phrase “fairytale romance” and just laugh and laugh. Cinderella’s husband doesn’t understand her, Snow White is engaged to a good friend for purely political reasons, and Sleeping Beauty married a complete jerk who’s sleeping with everyone in the realm except her. And all of that was before Rapunzel decided to chuck everything and move to Oz to raise unicorns.

Who knew that happily-ever-after would be so damn difficult to find?
