Halloween Theme

Filed under Geek Girl.


The party was wonderful! Countless creative ideas on “Your Worst Nightmare” theme! JH looked remarkable as Edward. I had the same backpack as Bella and a wig of long brown hair. Frankly it was boring to dress as her, after all she’s just a normal girl. But for work I dressed up as a witch… More

Roxie has been bugging me to do NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. This is where you try to write a novel in one month! I don’t know if I can do it, but I figure it can’t hurt to try. I am not sure why I am so nervous about it.

Worst Nightmare: Twilight

Filed under Geek Girl.


Lucky for us a Halloween Spirit store has opened next to the Whole Foods we shop at, this mean easy access. I’ll have to keep an eye on JH to make sure we don’t go overboard. I’m talking him down by reminding him we aren’t decorating this year. Since we will be at Mark &… More

My ankle is acting up; enough time passed I thought it would be healed already. So annoying. I fell while at the EMP Horror exhibit (see cool T-shirt I got). My ankle rolled, painfully.

The coffee house I go to is noisy but this only helps me to focus…like a huge white noise cloud hovering around me. Steve Ballmer stops by here almost every Sunday morning. Sometimes I’m tempted to tell him what I … More

TGIF. I suppose this is an often used phrase. Some Fridays are more important to say it than others.

Costume Quest

Work is busy right now…it’s been this way since August. Thank god it’s not as bad as last year. I am excited about the titles I work on…but shhhh I can’t talk about it. Even if titles are announced, it’s not my place to say. Ok, one quick comment: I wish there was more content for… More

Halloween Looming

Filed under Geek Girl.


Halloween is looming and this is JH’s favorite holiday. We have an amazing place to go for the Saturday before, but the theme has been a bit of a struggle. “Your Worst Nightmare” – which had me thinking immediately of my mom. Don’t get me wrong, love my mom, but how funny would it be… More
