Cosplay: We Made A Thing Today!


One of my favorite things about CONvergence -and of which there are many – is all of the cosplay. The Hubby and I love to people-watch, and we like to dress up when it’s creative and convenient. This year we decided that we had the time and energy to put together a few costumes. We …

I’m very excited for CONvergence this year. Not only is it my first year as an Invited Participant, but I made it onto FIVE panels, including an author reading which I’m organizing (more on that below). Our fearless SkepchickCon organizer and CONvergence volunteer, Melanie Mallon, has been busting her butt for the past several months …

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 …

Happy New Year – With Butter!


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. Breakout was my favorite game for a long time. Remember this bad boy? And unlike some of the other games, this one used the …

Gaylaxicon Fun


This weekend I’m at a GLBT Science Fiction/Fantasy Convention called Gaylaxic0n. It’s a national event, and it’s being hosted in Minneapolis this year. It’s a smaller, more relaxed convention; I’d guess there are about 300 attendees tops, and there are three panels per time slot. Guests of Honor include Gary Russell, Lyda Morehouse, Kyell Gold …

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 …

Pro-Vaccination Billboard Photographed by moi on southbound 94 in Wisconsin This billboard on southbound 94 in Wisconsin made me happy.
