Top Five Reasons Why Dungeons & Dragons Will Help You Survive the Recession

Everyone's all "OMG RECESSION!"  People are losing their jobs, businesses are crumbling, house prices are tumbling, and Jack and Jill just can't manage to get the credit line to buy the motorized scooters needed to cart their fast-food-filled asses up the hill to fetch a pail of water.  (Okay, most likely a pail of Coca-Cola, but who really cares?)  Oh, woe is America.  The suckitude is upon us.  Whatever shall we do? Pull your tear-stained head out of your rear and play some Dungeons & … [Read more...]

Top Ten Things Geeks Can Learn About Dating From Watchmen

J and I both saw the midnight showing of Watchmen and decided we'd write a post together today.   So beware, we've put our heads together - this could be dangerous. What can Watchmen teach geeks about dating? Yep, we went there. You ready for it?  There will probably be mini-spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie, go someplace else. (How about here?) Read on, geek friends... … [Read more...]

10 Things I Expect in The Future

Lately, between using Netflix on my X-Box and my guy's new iPhone, I've begun to feel like I'm really in The Future.  Since we're clearly making groundbreaking advancements every day, I think it behooves me to throw my own requests out there. Granted, most of my expectations aren't grounded in any sense of reality, and are more influenced by books, movies and the fact that I've spent probably a year of my life in EPCOT and Tomorrowland. Still, there's nothing that says we can't have an … [Read more...]

Top Ten Reasons to Hunt Geeks In Their Natural Habitat

I have only once found a boyfriend in a place other than the internet. There.  I said it! When I saw this postcard on PostSecret, I had a good chuckle, because it could have been written by me. So where does a geek hunt for a man?  On the internet, of course! … [Read more...]

Top 10 Reasons I Want to Date Ironman

I finally got out and saw Ironman on Friday night. I have to say, it was pretty badass. However, not being a geek of the comic book flavor, I wouldn't know if it was rife with inaccuracies that would make other geeks poke their eyes out. I was very appreciative of the fact that the sexual tension between Stark and Pepper never got resolved in a cheesy "yay, we just saved the world" kiss. That, my friends, would have been lame. Either way, instead of writing a review, which I am … [Read more...]

Nada. What gives? Here are the Top 10 reasons why she hasn't responded to your email: … [Read more...]

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Date a Geek Girl

GeeksDreamGirl

10. She has traumatic memories from her K-12 education, or rather, the social interactions from her years before college. Your irrational fear of public bathrooms is not so irrational to her. 9. She's smart, maybe even smarter than you. When she sees the string of acronyms after your name in your sig file, she gets excited. Conversely, she'll taunt you when her string is longer. 8. She won't look at you like you have two heads when you complain about bandwidth, when you scream at your … [Read more...]

Top Five Reasons Why Your Dating Profile Gets No Love

5. You have no picture or your photos do not show you in your best light. Let's face it - women are visual creatures, too. We're also cautious. We want to see your eyes and make our irrational judgments about you based on a 200 x 300 pixel space. It is amazing how many 20 and 30-somethings put up pictures of themselves drinking. It's equally amazing how many men post pictures of themselves surrounded by women. (This does not make you "more credible" as a good date, in fact, it does … [Read more...]
