Happy 2nd Anniversary MrsEnginerd!
It is hard to think I started this blog two years ago after having been laid off. At first, I saw the opportunity to write as cathartic since I was saying goodbye to a ten year career, a total bummer, and needed to make amends with my newfound free time. After a few months, MrsEnginerd became […]

Italian suits, gorgeously designed deadly weapons and a beautifully tragic […]
My Life Two Years After The Layoff
When I started this blog as an unemployed nerd the future seemed bright and full of possibilities. Having gone through the grief phase where I cried and cursed the heavens for the pink slip, and for inability to find an alternate job position within the company as an engineer, I had made peace with the […]
Although I am a naysayer of all things reboot, Voltron is one of those shows that I can say has benefited from tech advances in animation. It deserved to be remade and this incarnation delivers. Loosely based on the original storyline, all of the main characters return – with the addition of Shiro, pilot of […]
