I admire the dedication here. And wish I had the time and creativity to do stuff like this.

Friday Weekly Wrap-up: Growing Old, Growing Up and Growing Spring Onions

Filed under: Nerds, Science, Scouts, Uncategorized — liberrydwarf @ 3:50 pm

The week that was!

One Good Thing: Happy Birthday to Me for yesterday! (And yep – DID get Sims Medieval! Happy days!)

One Bad Thing: Had my last night with my little Scouts last night for a while – sad thing is. I’ll only be away for a few months (unless I’m making the assumption that six-month-olds give you an hour off a week incorrectly) but by the time I get back many of those kids will have had their birthdays, moved on and I’ll never see them again 😦

One Thing I Learned: There is a spring onion growing in my front garden. I didn’t plant it there. I didn’t use another spring onion and then put the remains in the compost, thereby inadvertently causing a new one to grow. So, how did it get there? And is it safe to eat?

Movies

Not to be outdone by Wolverine, Peter Pan’s getting an Origins movie too. Probable bad idea made worse by involvement of Channing Tatum…

Geeks make the house from “Up” in real life!

TV

Firefly was divinely inspired (if you believe The Cutting Room webcomic, that is)

Music

Never cared much for the original song, but in parody form it’s quite amusing. Watch for minor celebrity cameos!

Other

Monday Meme: The Geek Test

Filed under: Nerds — liberrydwarf @ 10:23 am

No long list of questions today – I simply took The Geek Test.

 

I am 33.72781% geek, which apparently makes me a Total Geek. Less than 2% shy of being a Major Geek though, so I might have to hand my Big Bang Theory DVDs back in…

Strangely, I am pretty proud of this. Both that I could answer so many questions with a tick, and that I couldn’t say yes to all of them.  Balance!
