Adulting Etiquette Mrs Enginerd Nerd Stuff

Of Nerdaphores and Slacktivism

Most of my friends are nerds and as such, we come up with  nerd wisdom all the time. To properly convey the message of our philosophical sessions, made up terminology is employed. [Side note: Our employer is infamous for making up jargon and acronyms that no human can decipher so it rubbed off on us peons […]

Back to Leveling Up

A long time ago, before I decided to buy a new house, move and upgrade it/decorate it in modern geek industrial chic style, the goal was to reach level 14 as a PSN user. My darling MrEnginerd is a level 14, soon a 15, and its tempting to take advantage of his love affair with the […]

The Mouth of Sauron

With this new wave of hatred and discrimination against women, minorities and the LGBTQIA community, I’m turning into a very vocal dissenter and advocate of human and civil rights. It is a quest I don’t take lightly because it affects me and my liberties as a citizen but it results in heated arguments and pointless […]

Zachapoo!

It has been 10 months already since we started to foster Zach and although there is a very strong sense that he will not be able to stay with us forever, we are enjoying the possibility of hosting him indefinitely. With the new house almost finished, we hope to move before the middle of October […]

Morgan (2016) 

This movie felt like D.A.R.Y.L. and the Bourne Identity’s baby. A genetically engineered biological AI is developed and trained to prove that a machine can be taught to act human to give it an edge. A cold and calculated risk manager (played by Kate Mara) is sent to determine if Morgan, model L9, is not […]

Kubo (2016)

This movie is a wonderful work of cinematic art that is difficult to review without spoiling the ending. In essence, it is the story of an origami folding, guitar wielding, magical boy whose only pleasure in life is to listen to his mother’s bedtime stories about a legendary warrior that fought the Moon King and […]

The Bucket List Update

I published a bucket list a while back in the hopes to track down high level goals but I noticed some of the inner milestones to check each item are missing. Walking Wrigley Field is a part of going to all the MLB parks yet I wouldn’t be giving myself credit for this milestone. On […]

Catching Up With The Windy City

The last time I went to Chicago was to celebrate my 30th birthday. Yay! This very important milestone required four star treatment so my husband booked us a room at the famous Drake hotel (referenced in the original Tom Cruise Mission Impossible movie), and I got courtside seats (well row 8) to a Chicago Bulls vs. […]

Letting Go

Broken hearted you cry, Releasing the anger through your tears, Vowing to move on, To stay strong, To fight and live another day. It happens naturally, Regaining your composure, Becoming a new person, reborn, with no need to wallow on the pain, Once bitten, twice shy, But with the acumen to win when, not if, […]
