You may or may not have noticed that Geeky Pleasures hasn’t been updated in some time. For that, I apologize. But, there are reasons. Many, many reasons, including a GottaCon update and website design news. Plus, a bonus! A Debs and Errol video: “Make It So” a parody of Frozen’s “Let It Go.”
Today, Len Peralta unveiled his latest Kickstarter: Geek A Week Year: Five: Two. Boy, oh boy, am I ever excited. If the above beyond adorable video with Len’s daughter isn’t enough to sell you, let me give you a little bit more information.
Like the title says, if you want a chance to win free geeky loot every month, it really is as simple as signing up for the Fortress Geek newsletter. If you are wondering if there are any other catches, the answer is, “Nope!”
If you’re anything like me, then you’ve dreamed of being an astronaut, either on board the I.S.S. or in a shuttle, and have wanted to control the Canadarm. Now, thanks to the folks at the Canadian Space Agency, you can.
My 38th birthday is just around the corner (January 9). To celebrate, as I have done over the last few years, I’m giving some of my favourite books away! This year, thanks to the wonderful people at Quirk Books, one lucky Geeky Pleasures reader will win the following four books (giveaway details below):
As another “while you wait for Jules to recover from the flu” post, over at GeekMom, I’ve gathered six Downton Abbey-inspired cross-stitch and embroidery projects to help occupy your time while you wait for series four on Sunday.
The reaction to the original GeekMom post was rather extraordinary. It became the subject of national news headlines. I was interviewed on a number of radio programmes. It was discussed across various forums and places around the internet. And, the survey even received a very honourable mention from the English department at the University of British Columbia. What UBC had to say about my survey caused me to squee, just a wee bit. There were also a number of frequently asked questions that I simply do not have the time to address individually.
To thank you all for spending another year with me and to wish you a safe and happy Christmas season, I commissioned the above Christmas card for you all. Regardless if you celebrate this holiday or not, I hope the end of the year treats you well, and that you have a wonderful New Year.
