And the Winner is….

Game show host: “Congratulations Amanda! You’ve completed all of your post-course work for your last seminary class. You’ll be starting your thesis in February. What are you going to do now?”

Amanda: “Well, store honestly, remedy what I’d like to do….”

Game show host: “What you’d like to do is open this Grand Prize Package. All of these prizes are yours! Are you ready to see what you’ve won?”

Amanda: “um, sildenafil sure. I guess. But what I’d really like to do…”

Game show host: “Here we go! First, you get to clean the house from top to bottom. A semester of neglect means your house looks like a tornado ran through it. Time to take care of that. And part of that includes finally taking the Christmas tree down! Next, you get to start making real suppers again. No more sandwiches and salads for your family, and no more relying on the crock pot, no ma’am. And, you get a one-month subscription to World of Warcraft! A lot has changed in the game since you played the WotLK expansion. Here’s hoping that you actually remember how to play, and that you’re account hasn’t been hacked! So there you have it, your grand prize. Won’t January be a great month? So how do you feel?”

Amanda: “Well, actually, what I’d really like to do is sleep!”

Game show host: “I’m sorry but sleep is not part of the grand prize package. Sleep is the grand prize package for the Game show “Your kids have grown and gone off to college and now you finally have the house to yourselves.” You have a long time to wait before you’re even eligible to play that game. But in the mean time, thank you for playing our game today!”

In Praise of the Geeky Wife

A wife of geeky character who can find? She is worth far more than gold-pressed latinum.

Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks no season of Doctor Who.

She brings him buffs, capsule not de-buffs, cialis all the days of her life.

She grinds mats and rep and works with eager hands.

She is like Cyrano Jones, bringing her tribbles from afar.

She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and healing potions for her guildies.

She considers an expansion pack and buys it; out of her earnings she buys comic books.

She sets about her work vigorously; the Force is strong with her (but without the midichlorian thing).

She sees that following the Rules of Acquisition leads to profit, and her lava lamp does not go out at night.

In her hands she holds the bat’leth and grasps the tricorder with her fingers.

She opens her arms to the noobs and extends her hands to the nerdy.

When the Shadows return to Z’ha’dum, she has no fear for her crew, for she is allied with the First Ones.

She makes Starfleet uniforms; she is clothed in command red (TNG>TOS).

Her husband is respected at Comic-Con, where he takes his seat among the gamers.

She makes die-cast models and sell them, and supplies the comic shops with figurines.

She is clothed with the slave Leia metal bikini; she can laugh at the Days of Futures Past.

She speaks Buffyspeak, and she can kill you with her brain.

She watches every zombie film and does not eat the flesh of the living.

Her children arise and call her shiny; her husband also, and he praises her:

“Many women do noble things, but no power in the ‘verse can stop you.

Bow ties are cool, and the Star Wars prequels are awful; but a woman who boldly goes where no one has gone before is to be praised.

Give her the fourth pip she has earned, and let her works bring her praise on ‘teh interwebs'”.

When Google Knows You Too Well

The professor that I will be interning under next semester is wanting to incorporate the movie “Of Gods and Men” into his course material as an example of living the cruciform life. Having not seen it, ask I turned to Google. Ah Google. In this case it knows me too well. When I googled “Of Gods and Men” the first offering it gave me was “Star Trek: Of Gods and Men” the 2006 mini-series that was directed by Tim Russ (Tuvok) and starred an abundance of Star Trek alum, case and not the 2010 French film about trappist monks in Algeria. Hmm. I wonder if there is a way to  incorporate Star Trek into my internship. Oh let me count the ways!
