This week’s prompt was for retro video games, but sadly, I didn’t really play video games back when they could be considered retro. So I’ve gone back a few years and picked one I could answer; mothers! This one still took a while for me to get into, and I really need to read/watch more stuff that has actual mothers in it. I went through a mental list of most recent books read and every time it was ‘mother dead/MIA’. I also didn’t want to fall back on old favourites that I’ve mentioned before in other ways (Leia, Padme from Star Wars for example).  Read More →

The Geeky Girl Tag

I love surveys, memes, challenges – anything that asks me to answer things that I haven’t thought up myself. I’ll often repost those ‘ask me…’ graphics on twitter and instagram to see what people come up with. So when I saw this geeky girl tag answered by Kitten at The Howling Wolfheart I had to jump in! The tag is originally by Cassie at ZombieGoddess Beauty and she has also done a Gamer Tag too! 1. What is your must-have tech gadget? Once upon a time I would have said it was my PC, however, after a year of having my tablet it wins thisRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Green Photo challenge

Happy St Patrick’s day everyone! Unsurprisingly this weeks prompt is a little green 😉 For my green photo challenge I decided to stick to geeky/fandom related items so here’s 5 photos of geeky stuff I own.     I’ve read all of these but one (can you guess which? 😉 ) and recommend them all. Have you read any of these?       My Naughty Nessie plushie alongside my 1980s Good Luck Bear Care Bear plushie and finally my Tatty Teddy frog costume plushie.     A selection of green movie DVDs (and one bluray) from our movie collection featuring some comic book filmsRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Favourite Sequels

In preparation for this post I was running through movie sequels in my head, and then it occurred to me to wonder whether sequel refers to movies only. It doesn’t…..   A sequel is a narrative, documental, or other work of literature, film, theatre, television, music, or video game that continues the story of, or expands upon, some earlier work.1   Oh balls. I considered just sticking to movies, but then the video games and the books kept poking me. They wanted to be heard too. Crud. I chose to exclude TV because to me, TV is an ongoing sequel. Until the final season everyRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Fandoms that made me who I am

    It’s been a while since I’ve blogged and posted a Fandom 5. I was away on a personal break for 3 weeks and then I’ve been sick since coming back. Sadly Fandom 5 hit a slump as it’s not been updated for new topics, but some of us over at Geek Girls Bloggers have been heading back to some old topics because we love Fandom 5! This is technically last weeks topic as neither of this weeks appealed to me and this one kept sneaking back in my thoughts.   I can’t remember the exact age I was when I saw my firstRead More →
