The highlight of most days is coming here and writing up some new words for your eyeholes to … Continue reading Let’s Catch Up
Ugh, just when I thought I had a reading plan for the rest of the year the Mrs. and I start watching the Harry Potter movies and I start wondering… should I be re-reading the Harry Potter books? Which becomes an issue for me. Right now, I’m elbows deep in the first First Law trilogy. Fun fact, our good friend Kyle was very much on … Continue reading When Books Attack- Should I Re-Read Harry Potter?!
I wish books came with soundtracks. Honestly, I don’t understand how we live in a world where books don’t have soundtracks. Think about it, movies, tv shows, and video games all have soundtracks to accompany the stories they tell. How is it that books haven’t adopted this same philosophy? This seems like something that could further boost sales in the book community, not to mention … Continue reading Why Don’t Books Come With Soundtracks?!
Finishing a book is usually one of my favorite feelings in the world. It’s right up there with whenever tacos are presented or when Hudson the Cat makes steady eye contact and then slow blinks at me. Finishing a book is a sense of victory and no matter how many books I’ve finished, and there have been a bunch, that feeling never goes away. And … Continue reading Books- The Ever Expanding To-Read Pile & How I Want To Read Something Else
I think we could all agree that more Harry Potter should be a good thing, right? On paper, it sounds like an excellent idea. Give us all that Hogwarts magic please and thank you! But over the last few years, there’s been a Death Eater sized shadow that has fallen over this franchise. A great deal of that stems from creator JK Rowling and comments … Continue reading Harry Potter TV Series- Only One Option
First off, I’m fully aware that making a Best of 2020 list sounds like an oxymoron. It’s like trying to figure out what was your favorite bone you broke after you tumbled down that hill or choosing which childhood memory was the most traumatic. For me it would concern a tick… and that’s all I’m going to say about that. But here’s the thing, while … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2020 Part I

Geeklings, it has been a minute, hasn’t it? It’s too tempting to make an “anything new going on” joke when clearly there is a ton going on so I’m going to do my best to refrain. Of course, you could argue by even mentioning the making of that joke counts as actually making the joke but I’m not here to split hairs. Yes, I am … Continue reading Checking In
Geeklings, a happy Monday to you all. I am currently on vacation and have spent the majority of my day doing chores in the hopes that the rest of my week can be chore-free. I know that may sound like a rather boring way to start ones vacation buuuut, I have to admit, I feel accomplished. Tomorrow Kevin is going to be quite relaxed, I … Continue reading Week In Geek- The Boys Season Finale & Bly House Brings the Spooky
