adventures in geekdom

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

Potter fever strikes again. Dammit.

* I finished the story element of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean. I know, FINALLY. I got it for Christmas last year. :X I was gonna work on 100% completion before starting LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, but considering LEGO: Pirates was by far the most frustrating LEGO game I’ve ever played, I might set that goal aside for another time.

* Speaking of Harry Potter, I’ve given in and have decided to reread the series again. Which is probably a bad idea considering how my summer school agenda looks for the next few weeks. Oops? Still, I haven’t reread the series in at least a year and a half (probably closer to two years, to be honest) and I’m taking notes this time around. I’ll post my questions and notes after I’ve finished each book so I can go through and answer them if possible!

* The Boyfriend and I will be at the Harry and the Potters/Potter Puppet Pals tour stop in Denver on August 4; will I see you there? I hope so! :D

And just because:

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!
