In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Flying my Geek Flag

I have joined Baby Girl and one of her best friends for a week-end of watching DVDs.

Best Friend bought the set of Marvel movies for the Avengers--with all the bonus features and then some. We are spending the week-end watching the whole thing--well, maybe except for the Hulk, which we all have agreed was pretty lame compared to the others.

Yes, I am a geek. I grew up reading Bradbury and Asimov. I was a major fan of Classic Trek when it originally aired, and I can't wait to see what happens with the next reboot movie coming out in May.  Even though I head to Williamsburg every chance I get, I really hope the hotel has Syfy on cable. Currently my must-see TV includes Arrow and Grimm along with NCIS, Castle, and Elementary.

And, while I can debate the relationships among and between sisters in Pride and Prejudice as opposed to Sense and Sensibility, I can also hold my own in a discussion about Kirk versus Picard.

Meanwhile I am also stitching on Ann Scutt.

Dearly Beloved does not feel left out, BTW. He is at home, watching his own marathon. Twilight Zone. Baby Girl and I gave him the complete boxed set for Christmas and he has been waiting for me to leave town so he can turn out all the lights and watch it as if he were in a movie theater. We have decided that this is a major difference between the genders. Here, we are all multi-tasking--Baby Girl is knitting, I am stitching, Best Friend is web-surfing, but we are all keeping up with the action.  The males in our lives need to focus on one thing at a time.


  1. Love your comment about the men in our lives--- so very, very true-- one thing at a time!

  2. Greetings, friend. I too spent many a youthful afternoon on Asimov's Robot novels and read Bradbury as well. I didn't discover classic Star Trek until it was in its first spate of re-runs when I was in college [an English major who now re-reads the Austen complete novels at least once every year]. My collection of Sci-Fi on DVD includes complete sets of Star Trek, Star Trek The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Babylon Five, Sanctuary, Battlestar Gallactica [the second version]. I am also into Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
