Happy Father’s Day To My #Blerd Dads!

I would say my dad/stepdad (and uncles) are half the reason I’m a geek, but it’s really more like 70%. From introducing me to the X-Men, Star Wars, Kung-Fu Movies and every Nintendo console since the SNES to helping me grow (and restore) my comic book collection and speculating on the upcoming Star Wars movies, both my dads have been such a big part of making me who I am today.

I’m happy to have some of my biggest interests in common with you two, so I thank you both for being geeks that you are and nurturing me into one too! I love you!

Today Is Going To Be EPIC!

Today, and this whole weekend for that matter, is going to be LEGEND- …wait for it…

While we’re waiting:

  1. It’s My Birthday! (I’m 25 today, which makes me feel a little old but completely awesome!)

    Aww thank you Ryan, you’re so sweet!
  2. It’s Star Wars Day!! Not only do you get to tell everyone “May the 4th be with you” all day long, there’s a bunch of awesomeness that goes along with it being Star Wars Day. Like BN.com having all sorts of Star Wars book on sale…well does it still count as a sale if they’re free!? In any case, go read!
  3. It’s Free Comic Book Day: And who doesn’t like free stuff? Check here for your local participating stores!524692_590249777659767_1485127163_n
  4. Iron Man 3 came out yesterday! We saw it, loved it and plan to see it again! (Pepper Pots finally gets some action!)
  5. It’s My Birthday!
  6. Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo- time for some more Patron!
    I don't always do magic, but when I do I use Patron!
    I don’t always do magic, but when I do I use Tequila!

    7. Tomorrow is also Sith day! (Revenge of the Fifth) So for those of you who have fallen or (or just vacation on) the dark side, we’re celebrating your awesomeness too!

Oh yea you’re still waiting for it…-ARY!

OOTD: The Power of the Dark Side

Can I tell you a little secret? I did actually make one New Year’s resolution! And no it isn’t to go to the gym more often, stop drinking so much grape soda or to finally set up that Etsy store (yes…all of those are still on my to-do list). My one resolution is to start doing more outfit posts! So as luck would have it my dear grandmother got me a Belkin LiveAction for Kwanzaa, and I took it as a sign! So here after my first photo shoot of myself, with myself, by myself  and for myself, is my first outfit post of 2013 🙂

This coat is one of my favorites, I got it during my first venture into Pay/Half last year and fell in love! The sleeves are very wide so if you’re like me and always walk with your hands in your pockets it looks like a true cape but it isnt! (Kinda makes me feel like a girly Darth Vader!) Those sleeves are a gift and a curse though, usually it’s not warm enough to wear in dead of winter (wind just flows right up the sleeves!) but I’ve been taking advantage of the mild weather we’ve been having in NYC lately.
