This week, my geek guy had some friends in town from Boston. We took them to Fountainhead and Scooter’s (great life choices.) As we parted ways, the pair asked where else in Chicago they should go. We happened to be parked next to a storefront that had MULTIPLE geeky posters displayed: Chi Nerd Comedy Fest,... Read more »
I got a surprise day off work today. Best Memorial Day weekend ever! So, I’ve made a To-Do list of productive things to get done between now and the holiday. It includes grown-up stuff like “Pay Car Insurance,” “Wash Car,” and “Freelance Editing Session.” Yaaaaaaawn. I’m keeping it balanced, though. Tonight’s agenda is literally “See... Read more »
I’m gonna be up front with you, gentle reader- I’m having a hard time writing tonight. I found out that my former employer has been reading this blog. Now, they are using GGC content to fight my unemployment claim. It isn’t illegal, but the “evidence” they cobbled together is strange and humiliating. I’ll write more about it... Read more »
Putting together this GEEKend post, I discovered one event on my calendar had been canceled. Whoa! I’ve never experienced that so close to an event date before. Sadly, due to low ticket sales, CHIditarod’s fundraiser “SuperRodders vs. CHIditaVillains” isn’t happening. What a shame. CHIditarod is such a cool event (no pun intended.) It deserves support.

Happy Thanksgiving, geeks! As I write this, I have finished my dinner, surrounded by family and friends. I am thankful, but also just FULL. I really want to sleep it off all weekend. If you’re a Doctor Who fan, though, this is NOT the time to relax and digest. Get ready for Chicago TARDIS 2014.... Read more »
Isn’t it just the most perfect day outside, Chicago? My car is in the shop, but it was honestly a joy to walk to the train. Hopefully, the sun stays out for this GEEKend. Tomorrow might be the busiest Saturday I’ve ever covered. I am highlighting five events in this article. However, I’m aware of... Read more »
Well, geeks- I made it to May 15th before thinking about this year’s Halloween costume. Agent Scully? Betty Grof? Queen Elsa?? …My earliness isn’t entirely my fault. Halloween is a big deal at my day job, and it was mentioned in a corporate context. Now, my favorite holiday is in my head. It shouldn’t be!... Read more »
