As it happens, fellow blogger Robby and I have shared an incredible number of our nerdiest moments. As a matter of fact, I’m hard pressed to think of significant nerdy life occurrences that do not involve him. For this Five Fandom Friday, our goal was to write two completely separate lists–and he beat me to the starting line, so he got most of the HUGE ones. So make sure to read his list as well, since it’s a pretty damn good one!
Here’s the thing: I do a lot of nerdy things. My whole life is essentially based around me doing nerdy things. And if it’s not inherently nerdy, I’m pretty talented at somehow making that shit nerdy. I mean, earlier tonight I did something incredibly nerdy and it was wedding related (but it’s a tasty seeeeecret). It’s a nerd gift, I think. We’re awesome like that.
Matching Casual Cosplay at Disneyland
Yes, this is a thing we’ve done. We may not have been allowed to wear our full-fledged Anna and Kristoff get-ups to Disneyland, but we thought it would be a good idea to emulate their classic looks for our get-away trip this past January. But that’s not all. We couldn’t go without donning our matching Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post sweatshirts (which are really cool. and made by the Disney-loving folks behind Whosits and Whatsits). It was tons of fun. And a little embarrassing.
Spending My Birthday Party Making Eeveelution Shots
My College Graduation Pictures Weren’t Complete Without the Love of My Life
…..my Romanticism Book. William Blake 4eva
If you think I’m joking, be prepared to be very, very disappointed. Here’s another of the nerdiest things I’ve ever done: admit that I miss college. At least in college I had an excuse to write detailed essays analyzing William Blake, Samuel Coleridge, and William Shakespeare.
All of it. Just.
All of it.
GDI Misha. The things we do for you.
Realizing I Loved Writing Because I Started Writing Harry Potter Fanfiction
No entertaining photos for this one, I’m afraid. Just a couple of barely teenagers on the Easter between The Prisoner of Azkaban and The Goblet of Fire sitting down with a pad of paper and deciding “Hey, we’re gonna write some stories about Harry Potter.” Sometimes, when I’m sad, I pull out our original manuscript (which I ABSOLUTELY have kept over all these years), and bask in the glory that were our hastily conceived characters and an overt love of Sirius Black. It’s the story that spawned a million stories. And it started with a bad Austin Powers pick-up line.
