A Thought on Alderaan

I want to take a moment and share a couple thoughts I’ve been having about the fateful planet of Alderaan. When we are first introduced to Alderaan (in Episode IV: A New Hope) it is the home world of the one and only Princess Leia. Which in and of itself is enough of a reasonContinue reading “A Thought on Alderaan”

Bun Challenge

Perhaps you’ve seen the popular Instagram account @willitbeard and if you haven’t, prepare to be delighted by Pierce Thiot and his beard. Pierce posed the question “Will it Beard?” And has set out to see exactly what kind of everyday objects, foods, toys, etc will fit in his beard and stay in his beard.

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Guess what’s back tomorrow!! It’s been a while since I’ve delved into the world of Nerdy hair and I have certainly missed it. It’s a hobby I never knew I was good and certainly wasn’t good at in high school despite desperately wishing I was back then. My hair was a menace in my younger years. A curlyContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair”

The Only Girl in the World

When I was growing up…there was only one girl in the whole world that I wanted to be. I didn’t have a lot of choices. Leading ladies in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were few and far between to say the least. One girl in Star Wars (Princess Leia.) One girl in Superman (Lois Lane.)Continue reading “The Only Girl in the World”

Now What Do You Do?

If you haven’t yet seen Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, then I’d venture to say it’s only a matter of time till you do. The biggest pop culture event of all time…even the Muggles want to be a part of this. There’s a lot of new people discovering the wonderful world of StarContinue reading “Now What Do You Do?”

Dear Carrie Fisher,

I’m sorry that we live in the kind of world where appearance is what we are judged on above all other merit. To some degree everyone is judged in this manner, but no one is judged quite as harshly as women over a “certain” age. A threshold that seems to creep younger and younger each year.Continue reading “Dear Carrie Fisher,”

The Force is Awake

Now that I’ve see Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens for the 6th time, I feel like I can accurately and comprehensively share with you my thoughts and feelings and theories about it all. But before you go any further, let me offer you two warnings: The 1st is the obligatory SPOILER WARNING. BecauseContinue reading “The Force is Awake”

Leia, It’s Cold Outside

If God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers was this nerd’s answer to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (and if you missed it…CLICK HERE) then Leia, It’s Cold Outside would be my answer to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. I wonder what could possibly be coming tomorrow to a YouTube near you!Continue reading “Leia, It’s Cold Outside”
