So, my old swimsuit combination (bikini top and surf shorts) is fast approaching retirement. My boobs are kind of in danger of spilling out every time I wear the top, and the shorts are getting threadbare. So, I need a new swimsuit.
What kind of question is that, of course you want more LeVar Burton in your life. If anything the Reading Rainbow kickstarter has proved is that we, as a society, greatly require more LeVar Burton. Well, lucky for you LeVar guest hosted the YouTube show Sci Show, where he explained the science behind double rainbows.
LeVar Burton and the Reading Rainbow team have launched a new Kickstarter to fund a new Digital Reading Rainbow that will be available to any kid with an internet connection. A school version will also be available, and it will be free to any in-need school.
Hello Couch! I've got some questions that maybe some of you can help out with.
You're all welcome.
I feel like this the kind of thing that can only come about in the age of the internet. Oh, what a time to be alive.
So, I've been reading a short story collection called "Geektastic: Tales from the Nerd Herd". It's a YA anthology book where the stories focus on geeky/nerdy kids from all flavors of nerd (science, roleplaying, cosplay, quiz bowl, superheroes). I've been really enjoying it, up until the story "The Secret of Dino Girl"…
Today's Dumbing of Age (by David Willis) sums up all of my feelings on girl pants, and their lack of pockets. Though I suppose two inches of pocket is better than fake pockets. Seriously though, who designs fake pockets on pants? Communists. Communists design fake pockets on pants. It's all part of a pants…
I got the letter today! I start in the Fall, and they're even giving me a small scholarship! I'm really thrilled. I'm going to be getting an M.S. in Library Science (and once I start I'm going to apply for the Library Media Specialist track that leads to Teaching Certification).
Was anyone else disappointed by the performance of 'Let it Go' from the Oscars? John Travolta fucked up Idina Menzel's name royally, the song was cut, Idina seemed off her game, and, was it just me, or did the music seem sped up a little? The result was a live performance that wasn't up to par with Idina Menzel's…
Hey guys! I don't know if any of you remember the comic-book inspired convertible dresses that my friend made a few months ago. She's been working really hard on growing her business the past few months and it's been really successful! She's been featured on ThinkGeek's FB page and on The Mary Sue!
AHHH! AAAHHH! EEEE! ROCKET RACOON! GROOT! GAMORA! CHRIS PRATT LOOKING FINE AS HELL!
Alright, guys, so guess what I just did? Did you guess I applied to grad school? Oh, you read the title and saw that I did? You're no fun. But I don't care. I APPLIED TO GRAD SCHOOL.
SO MANY PUPPIES!
No, but seriously, I've been working on my grad application (for Library and Information Science) for the past few weeks. It's pretty much done. The forms are filled out, my transcript it in, my resume is uploaded, and I have two people who will write me letters of recommendation. The only thing I have left to do is…
Without any announcement, Gray's Papaya shut its doors yesterday, apparently due to a 20k rent hike. And it's going to be replaced by some overpriced juice bar bullshit. Fucking hell. This is breaking my heart. I'm a native New Yorker, and Gray's Papaya was a staple of my childhood. I remember going to Washington…
Hey, this is cool! Hasbro Toys will be introducing a new Transformer robot Windblade, who is female. Windblade is the result of a poll where fans got to pick the majority of her characteristics (except the kabuki-esque appearance, that was done by the design team according to the Transformers Wiki).
I hate you. I would like you to stop being sick and gross and full of phlegm. I would like you to not cause me to miss work (though I owe work an 'I hate you letter' too), because Friday is my long day and is the day I make a good chunk of my week's money. I would like you to go jump off a cliff.
Welcome back, gals and pals, to another Comic Book Wednesday. Since it's December, and since the holidays are upon us, we're all going to be doing a fair amount of shopping soon. And you know what makes excellent Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Winter Solstice/Shit-It's-Cold-Let's-Give-Each-Other-Crap gifts? Comics. So, I…
I'm so full of ribs and burgers and pie and alcohol. Most of which was consumed while I was in a pool.
So, there are these two guys that a lot of you have heard me talk about named Hank and John Green. They do this YouTube series called VlogBrothers, which is mostly them sitting in front of their computers talking, doing awesome stuff, and other low-budget things that you can view every week online.
