It is an all-out war in my house right now. A war between packing, writing, cleaning/laundry, reading, basic elements of survival (i.e. survival)* and GEEKtastics.
(*at first, I was going to put "i.e. eating" here, but "survival (i.e. survival)" cracked me up, and totally fits the theme, anyway.)

Geektastics: similar to gymnastics, in that one accomplishes harrowing feats of prowess not manageable by just anyone... only, in this version, it's the atrophied, costumed step-cousin of gymnastics. And all of the harrowing feats happen in your imagination (where else?).

Every once in a while, I ponder, in complete love and with no regret, "Where would I be if I hadn't married this particular person?" Well, surely not anywhere that I'd want to be more than right here, on this couch, snuggling with my blond, scruffly-headed husband, and TOTALLY GEEKING OUT to:

I have to admit, when I first saw this on The Office:

I doubted I'd ever watch. I mean, it was a Dwight joke. Then again, Dwight was all about LOST, too, and gracious knows how I devoured that one. So, here it is, world. My husband and I are currently drooling over a Sci Fi show (well, I'm drooling; he's far less dramatic), in wedded, nerdy bliss. Witness an exchange from earlier today:

Husby: I'm coming home early!
Me: Yay! Why?
Husby: I'm exhausted and I wasn't getting anything done, anyway. I need to take a nap.

**three episodes and no naps later**

Husby: Little did you know, I actually came home to watch Battlestar Galactica.
Me: *so proud*

Afterthought: We still need to pack, though.

(So much for my "less Netflix" goal.)


  1. Ya need to add Doctor Who to your repertoire, as well... <3 me some Doctor! I just started watching BSG... hubby's not interested. :) Glad to know someone else out there is nerding out to it, too (better late than never... :)).

  2. Okay, I have NO idea what Battlestar Galactica is about, but here's what I gather:

    Red dress Woman: Look guys! I found this sexy dress for $10 on the clearance rack at Target!

    Angry Pointing Woman: You filthy liar! You got that out of my closet! Filthy, filthy lies!!

    Couple in matching sports bras: (Her) Why Brett, you're looking very makey-outy today. (Him) Agreed.

    Knifey: I thought *I* was looking makey-outy today. Now I only have my knife to keep me warm.

    Other Couple in Matching Jumpsuits: (Her) Don't make out with me yet. I want to watch the smackdown. (Him) Let's go to Target. Or to Angry Pointer's closet. Either or.

    Thoughtful Older Man to the Right: Thoughtful Younger Man has officially stolen! My! Pose!

    Brunette by Angry Pointer: You do the pose so much better, Thoughtful Older Man. The glasses really bring it home.

    Oldest, Bald Guy: I invented that pose, son. Take a seat.

    Surprised Guy: Taaaaaarrrrrggggeeettttttt!!!!

    So, am I close? Because that sounds like a show I could really, really get behind :)

    Netflix was the bane of my existence when I was trying to pack! Or rather, the fact that I couldn't just park and watch every awesome show ever made was the bane of my existence. Yay for geeking out with husbys!

  3. Oh. My. Gosh. Jeigh. You are SPOT ON.
    (couple in matching sports bras! *I fall to the ground with laughter*)

  4. Awww, you two sound so cute! X) I hope when I get married, I can geek out over such things with my husband. :)

    In other news, I owe you an email! :D Which I shall get to asap!

  5. Battlestar is hands down one of my favorite shows of all time.

    Just wait. It gets AMAZING.

  6. love love love BSG, and love finding friends who do too. I went to Dallas ComicCon in May and they had uniforms you could buy...for $600.

  7. Oh wow, Amy. You got one, right? ;)
