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:

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 Girlâ„¢ 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…
