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

disneylandYes, 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.

My College Graduation Pictures Weren’t Complete Without the Love of My Life

… 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.



Wondering where the Five Fandom Friday tradition originated? Or maybe you’d like to see previous Five Fandom Friday topics covered by us. Are you participating in Five Fandom Friday? We’d love to read it! Thanks for reading!





Writer. Cosplayer. Binge Netflix Watcher. Anime Dweeb. Book Enthusiast. Harbours inappropriately strong feelings about Shakespeare and William Blake. Once lost a whole day theorizing about Game of Thrones. The most motivated procrastinator she knows. Sometimes it works out in her favor. Mostly just causes widespread panic. It's all good though, because she never forgets her towel.

    1. They were a lot of fun, both to come up with and to drink!

      Hmmmmm, maybe an article with the recipes is in order…you know, for the sake of blogging, and not at all because I need an excuse to down Eeveelution shots again.

  1. Out of all of those things, I think the graduation picture is the nerdiest.
    And I’ve seen some of that fan fiction lol
