I am a nerd, blogger, and Whovian who enjoys practicing my stand-up comedy on the unsuspecting public. I love reading books, watching movies, and anything having to do with Firefly or Doctor Who. I go total fan girl at times. I Internet stalk my favorite dancers on SYTYCD. I can recall faces and names of random people who have caught my eye and who continue to show up in my favorite movies and television shows. I love connecting random pieces of trivia, and often excitedly exclaim over such connections to my friends. They usually just look at me with sympathy for my weirdness. Hey, if I have to suffer how my brain works, they do too.
Now you can as well. Aren’t you lucky?
I have an extremely eclectic taste when it comes to geekisms. I enjoy searching the internet for random factoids and I really love sharing my tidbits of information with other people who don’t so much have the inclination to be up until one in the morning watching a YouTube video about a Sucker Punch and Disney Princesses mash-up. After months of posting Nerd Links of the Day on Facebook, I decided to move my tidbits over to this website per the requests of friends. I am still not quite sure if they were eager for other people to hear my comments on popular geek/nerd culture or just wanted me to stop posting so much nerdy stuff on Facebook.

From one happy geek to another..nice to meet you…Eliza Keating
Hello. Hope you enjoy the postings. 🙂
Love to see more nerds on wordpress!
Me too! 😀
I have nominated you for The Sunshine Award because when I read your blog I can leave my real life problems for a while. Thank you for that 😉 Here is the information : http://beddyburc.wordpress.com/2012/03/04/about-the-sunshine-award/
Have a nice nerdy day!
Thank you for your nomination!
I think I may be a nerd as well. Hmm, I never really thought that way about it, but a lot of the things you like, so do I! I call myself eccentric so maybe what I really am is eccentrically nerdly. Sounds fun! Sounds like a club I want to start.
Eccentrically nerdy sounds like a great club. I’m extremely eclectic in what I like, people seem to understand that when I tell them I’m a nerd. Or rather, when my other friends explain that I’m a nerd. Welcome to the club. 😀
Glad to be part of all the fun that you create.
Its always nice to find fellow nerds on WordPress 🙂 Nerds and geeks FTW! 😀
I agree! Your site is quite funny, I too have a disconnect between what my brain says to do and what my body does. Also, I have an evil right hand. I once accidentally flung white out all over my keyboard. It was my hand, not me! I swear. 🙂
Aw thankyou! 🙂 Haha at least I am not the only one with such a curse 😛 Damn body doing what it feels like, I think you’ll have to keep a close eye on that evil right hand, who knows what it is plotting next! 😛 My right hand has a sick affiliation with pain, it likes to get in the way and burn itself every time I am cooking 😛
Who! Brilliant! Bow ties are cool. So are Fez’s. I’m almost tempted to nominate you for my Regenerations Award on the spot, despite never actually reading a single post you’ve written. Yet.
Maybe later though because it’s almost 2am and even a Timelord must find the time to sleep… although, if you sleep for 7 hours, wake up, get the TARDIS to go back in time 7 hours and basically carry on from where you left off, could you, in fact, never miss another moment again???
As long as there is sleep in there somewhere. That is where I do all my time traveling after all. 🙂
Any Firefly fan belongs on my reading list! From one nerd to another,…..[thinks to himself “What the heck is the nerd motto? or is there one?” ….keep on truckin’
Thanks for reading and commenting. I think the nerd motto is whatever fandom interests you the most. Maybe, “Everybody dies alone” or “Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!” Hmmm, I can’t seem to think of a positive often quoted Firefly line. lol
This is the second time this week that Firefly and Serenity have popped up in interwebs conversations. I’ve got the whole season and the movie on DVD, I guess I’m gonna have to watch all of it now. I’ll try to pull an obscure quote (probably something goofy, like one of Jayne’s lines) for a motto, LOL
IMDB to the rescue, from “Mr Universe” in Serenity : “From here to the eyes and the ears of the ‘Verse, that’s my motto, or it might be if I start having a motto.”
Poor Mr. Universe.
Yes, that movie was filled with pain for me. That’s what I liked about the show and the movie so much was that you got to know the characters like they were real people and were joyful at their accomplishments, angry over their frustrations and mourned their passing as if they were friends or relatives.
Hey Jami – I just tagged you… if you want to play along, the rules and questions are at the link below…
Thanks so much for the tag, if I can spare some time in the next couple of days I’ll try to join in the game!
Love your blog!! 🙂
Fellow nerd, Sumithra!!
I’m so glad you love the blog, it is my happy place. 🙂
I take great pleasure in notifying you that you have been nominated for/awarded the Sunshine Award. Your award and the rules await you at your earliest convenience at this link
I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being a constant ray of light in my sometimes dark world. 🙂
Thank you so much for the award! I’m glad that you find the blog a constant ray of light, it is my happy place too. 🙂
As is mine to me. I wondered why that was for a while and came to the conclusion that we can truly be ourselves here. You’re more than welcome for the award!
Firefly/Serenity is America’s best contribution to modern culture!
Definitely one of my favorites!
Just came across your blog from Allie’s Pro Tips blog. I’m not much a Dr Who guy, but I do like the other geeky references!
I try to have a little of something for everyone here. But I am partial to Doctor Who. 🙂
I nominated you for a Liebster Award! http://nocluejustrandomwords.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/liebster-nomination/
Thank you for the nomination! I can’t promise to post the answers to the questions right away, but I will get to it!
