I’m not alone in my Star Wars shunning!


A good friend of mine who is married to a self-confessed Star Wars nerd (who is also a good friend of mine) recently confessed to having never seen any of the Star Wars movies. The subject came up when she asked me if Dr. Darling or I were interested in seeing the new film with her husband, …

I was an impressionable grade-schooler with an uncle in the US Air Force when the Apollo program was in full-swing, and I was fascinated by it.  I vividly remember watching Neil Armstrong‘s first moonwalk (from the ER of a Detroit hospital after a bike accident) and I did several pencil drawings of the evolving lunar …

“Bunnysuits” for Big People

OnePiece in Malmö!

My family has always referred to blanket sleepers (AKA one-piece footed pajamas for infants and toddlers) as “bunnysuits”.

Who’s the Big Geek now?

Last week I made fun of Dr. Darling for watching Olympic cross-country skiing (on TV) and curling (on the netbook) at the same time. BIG MISTAKE. Turns out I had no room to talk, because tonight I’m watching Olympic curling (on TV) and President Obama’s Bipartisan Meeting On Health Reform (on my MacBook) at the …
