adventures in geekdom

The blog of a twentysomething who is finally unleashing her inner geek after stifling it for the majority of her adolescence.

So…this conversation happened.

Little-known fact about me on teh interwebz: I’ve been riding and working with horses since I was five years old. The Boyfriend has been absolutely lovely about the idea of owning horses someday, and the other day I had some…ideas…about what to name these future equine family members.

(Oh, and give me a break on misspelling Cersei Lannister’s name. The Boyfriend and I are still dreadfully behind on Season 2 of Game of Thrones.)

Three guesses what The Boyfriend got me for my birthday yesterday.

Hint:

Okay, the battle droids are cute. Useless, but cute.

I’m not even gonna try and explain the most recent gap between posts. But let me tell you, this semester has been FUN. I mean, just look at my happy face: :|

In the meantime, I’ve been keeping up with my bucket list a bit. I’ve begun watching The Clone Wars animated series and I’m nearly done with season one. So far it’s pretty good, and I’ve heard it gets much, much better as the series goes on. I’ve been trying to keep that in mind, since this first season is definitely pandering to fans of the prequel movies (because those fans exist?).

Of course, Obi-Wan is awesome and flawless and the best character on the show. *girlish sigh* I wish I liked Ahsoka Tano more, but so far I’ve nicknamed her Catchphrase Girl™ because everything she says is cheesy and out-of-place. Hopefully they develop her character better later on, though this is Star Wars we’re talking about. Princess Leia is the only redeeming female character in that entire universe that I’ve seen so far.

(But, okay. I’ve kind of adopted the phrase “Artooey” and often squeal as I say it. BUT HE IS JUST SO SMALL AND CUTE AND SQUEE. OMG.)

I’ve also decided that over the summer, I’ll start playing Skyrim. IT LOOKS SO SHINY. And I’ve heard some rumblings that it’s an awesome game. Y’know, here ‘n there. ;) But since I’m on spring break this week, I’m gonna try and catch up with Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean. I’ve nearly completed all of the story levels, then I can go back and snag all of the bonus stuff.

My Magic: The Gathering deck is finally complete, and a post about that will surface someday. In the distant future. In a galaxy far, far away…

Oh…yeah. This thing exists. :X

I know, I know, it’s been a while. *ducks flying objects*

Hey, to be fair, finals and the holidays were particularly brutal this year. So while the three people who consistently follow my blog are mad that I haven’t updated in ages, I HAVE NO REGRETS. Muahaha.

Not much holiday nerdiness to report. I did receive LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, so I’ve been dorking around on that all winter break and I’m nearly done with the story playthroughs. I’m holding out on LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 because of price and simply wanting a different LEGO video game experience for a while. After that, I may move on to LEGO Star Wars. I LIKE LEGO GAMES, OKAY?

Also, The Boyfriend and I have added The Big Bang Theory to our tv must-watch list. His parents had been bugging us to watch it for ages, and after getting through half of season one I promptly went out and bought seasons 1-4 on DVD. Needless to say, “Bazinga!” and “Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock” has made its way into our collective conscious.

I was going to say “If you haven’t seen it yet, you totally should!” except it seems he and I are a little late to that party. :X

I’ve finally picked up my Magic: The Gathering deck again for the first time in ages, and boy am I rusty. Still, some of The Boyfriend and I’s friends are building and improving decks of their own so we’re all hoping to start a weekly MTG meetup in the near future. I’m trying to focus my Red/Blue deck more towards short bursts of fiery damage using low-cost Red monsters and lots of Blue scry cards, which means more Fiery Hellhounds! *pets her sweet demon poochies from the underworld*

I’ve updated my affiliates list and removed blogs that no longer updated, and have added a new about the geek page so you can learn a little bit more about moi! As always, I’ll do my best to post as often as I can and I have a few blog topics lined up (a card-by-card analysis of my MTG deck to start), so check back for that.

I hope you all had a lovely holiday season and New Years, and here’s to blogging and geekdom in 2012!
