Just in time for the end of the world – I’m BACK!!
Instead of a wrap-up of the year’s events in the life of Jen, I’ve decided to list a few of my favorite geeky things so that if you’re still struggling to holiday shop for your favorite geek – or just looking to procrastinate with some fun online distractions – this could serve as your one stop shop (until you move on to the next geeky blog).
First of all – THINGS!!
I LOVE to play games. Tabletop games to be precise. Here are some of my favorites:
Cards Against Humanity. (this is a very adult game that is very wrong and very awesome… and – if you want to print it out yourself – it’s free!!)
Dixit (I LOOOOOOVE this game!! Just sayin’)
Moving on… other things I really enjoy – Books!:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (technically YA, but it starts with the gruesome murder of a boy’s family from the POV of the murderer… so that’s pretty intense for a teen book…).
Bossypants by Tina Fey
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Dropped Names by Frank Langella (Contains some sexual reminiscences bordering on TMI from a guy almost old enough to be my grandfather…but still a FASCINATING read).
Next up are excellent time-wasters:
And finally some of my favorite things that cannot be found on the internet…
My amazingly patient and loving wife, Jen (yes, we have the same first name… we’ve been over this).
My hugely talented and adorable godson, Jesse.
My parents. (My Dad can be found on the web HERE)
This piece of fudge (om nom….)
My cats – Brighid, Freya, Chloe and Gillian.
My dog – Erin.
I’ve got plenty more, but I’d better save them for future posts, otherwise I’ll run out of things to write about.
Happy Holidays, Everyone!! Hope yours is awesome and full of wonderful geeky things!
