As I sat here researching Seattle mayoral candidates…

I realized the majority of people won’t even bother to vote in this primary, let alone do research to make an educated choice. Something is wrong here :\

Come see me at Nerd Nite Seattle!

I am living the dream: I’ve been invited to give a talk of extreme geekiness this Monday: Pokébiology 101 There may not be a Pikachu Genome Project, but the unusual biology of the Pokémon Universe can teach us about biology in the real world. How do Pokémon species differ from species here on Earth? What …

Movin’ on up

My boyfriend and I were reading the news, and we happened to be reading an interesting pair of articles at the same time: Boyfriend: *reading title* University of Washington research ranks fourth among world universities. Me: *reading title* Purdue ranks second in FBI hate crime report. Boyfriend: Well, at least it wasn’t first. We’re number …

I know I have a lot of readers in Seattle, so I want to ask you guys for help. A dear friend of mine had their car stolen in the last 24 hours. For reasons I won’t get into for privacy’s sake, they believe it was moved somewhere and possibly made to look abandoned. If …

Geek Girl Con was a blast

IMG_1009

This is only the second year for the completely volunteer-run Geek Girl Con, and I had a great time. There’s something liberating about going to a geeky con that recognizes your existence in its programming and its demographics. It actually feels strange for me to walk around a geeky con being part of the majority …

Dessert break!

If I had a kryptonite, it would be Molly Moon’s ice cream: This particular pint is a seasonal batch called Sasquatch. Theo chocolate ice cream with chunks of dark chocolate and caramel coated granola. Holy fuckballs is it good. They aren’t serving it anymore but you can still buy pints. I may or may not …

Favorite thing about Seattle

Another donor asked me what was my favorite thing about Seattle. …It’s not Indiana. I mean, you’re making me pick one thing? How the hell am I supposed to choose? I spent my whole life trapped in Indiana, dreaming of a liberal paradise somewhere. I feel like I’ve found it. I don’t have to worry …

Video: Naked bicyclists!

My favorite part of the Fremont Solstice Parade is always the naked bicyclists. Some people go the route of pure nudity, but most come up with elaborate body-paint costumes. Here’s a video I took today of the bicyclists, with dorky commentary about costumes I particularly liked. Highlights include X-men, Ninja Turtles, Rubic’s cubes, Care Bears. …
