Geek In Review + Your St. Pat's Day Treat

Monday nights are still great as ever for geeks when it comes to the ol' idiot box. I actually managed to watch the second episode of "DWTS" as some call it, and Steve Wozniak is just SO DARN ADORABLE. They should make plushy toys shaped just like him. I would buy at least one, possibly more. The Big Bang Theory was back in form, and even though Medium was a re-run, I think it rounded out the evening nicely.

Things have been a whirlwind lately, albeit, a self-imposed whirlwind. I've just been working a ton, (Yep, 2000 lbs. worth of effort.) and preparing for some projects. I've essentially been setting up professional dominoes. But I've noticed that the more I work, the more I also close out my creativity. So I decided to take a break today to get back to artsy stuff. I've planned ahead for my column this week, I'm still thinking about writing my Garrison Keillor-ish essay, and last Thursday's interview with Cory Doctorow went swimmingly.

Though I will say this, geeks be warned, should you purchase a DVR for interviews, you will cringe as you listen to yourself being completely asocial when you have to listen to it again to transcribe your interview. I am constantly reminded that I really am living my own version of, "The Chris Farley Show" every time I talk to someone of note. It's my thing I guess...no avoiding it. My life as a writer will just have to be filled with fangirl quirks and awkward nerdy laughs at inappropriate times. I'm okay with that.

Also, I know that spring is coming, because Indiana Jones fever has really hit me hard. I mean, I guess I kind of live in a fevered delierium of Indiana Jones fandom. It's my favorite anything ever of all time. How's THAT for a qualifier? But it seems like I really get the itch to dig into the special features and watch all the movies right when spring rolls around. I think it's because I'm starting to awaken from my winter-induced carbo-coma. I can actually imagine myself outdoors and start craving adventure like mad. I think I might have to come up with some more creative ways to satiate my cravings for all things Indy in the future. How many times can I watch the movies? I might have to start planning some kind of real life trips or adventures or something...

I have to get going, I'm doing a teeny little acting gig today and really need to get moving on preparing. Until next time fellow geeks...

Oh yeah, Happy St. Patrick's Day. (I've been so busy I didn't have time to come up with a clever St. Pat's day clip or list or story. So this'll just have to do.)
