Geek’s Dream Girl Reaches Terrible Twos!

Happy Blogiversary to Geek’s Dream Girl!

Just a bit past Valentine’s Day 2008, I fired up a Blogger account with big dreams and flew by the seat of my pants.  (Flying by the seat of my pants is pretty much my M.O. for life in general.)

Please indulge us as we take a look back…
