Sims Cosplay

SIMS Cosplay

I play Sims3 – my “best friend” got me into it and I just get drawn in for hours trying to improve my skill levels and find rocks and meet objectives, and fulfilling wishes and goals, juggling multiple players (but I haven’t picked up the Pets expansion yet…), tracking down celebrities, fishing, and putting additions …

Eye-roll warning – Below is way too much modern city-person excitement about discovering a process that’s been known to this world for thousands of years and probably a number of young students who have done cooler science experiments in class than I did. You guys – I made BUTTER! I made some whipped cream for …

JT and JTs Videogameathonapalooza!


The first game system I played was the Atari 2600. I have memories of playing E.T., Berzerk, Pitfall, Asteroid, Space-Invaders, Frogger and DigDug.  I still remember the pain of Atari Thumb.

Science Puns for Lunch


On today’s lunch menu: Science puny goodness. I made this: Cooh story, bro. And a coworker told the joke that inspired this: I’ll send the first commenter who correctly identifies the pun being made in the image above some awesome science stickers.

6 O’Clock BS – Board and Card Games


Something fun and light-hearted for this Friday’s 6 O’Clock BS, I think. Since it is Geek Pride Day (many froody returns) I think that board and card games would be a fitting subject. I grew up with the Hasboro classics, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I started paying closer attention …

Chuck Norris – Eat Your Vegetables!


Continuing in the geektasticness that is May the 4th, I saw this on Facebook this morning. Caption reads: Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables. Thanks to Madeline for sharing. And that led me over to Pintrest ScifiSiren Geekery group, where I lost valuable minutes of my life, but really it’s more like I …
