What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
The kind that is found at the bottom of a pile of books.
About Me:
I'm Carissa. I'm a nerdfighter as of...well, since always but only now coming to embrace the title. I go to college, I write (two published short stories *happy dance*), and I read--a lot, I mean it is probably unhealthy to read as much as I do. What does sunlight look like?
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Books: Jim Butcher's Dresden Series, Harry Potter, Margaret Atwood's Surfacing, Larry McMurtry, Tamora Pierce, Mercedes Lacky, Tolkien, Barry Hannah. I love a short story by Robert Stone called "Helping". Seriously, it is an awesome short story. Andre Dubus, another awesome short story called "Killings". I would kill to have written that story.

TV: The West Wing, Doctor Who, Sherlock, QI, Argumental, Mock the Week, HIGNFY, Stargate, Inspector Lynley.

Movies: Penelope, Finding Neverland, the whole slew of Harry Potters, Star Wars, some Star Trek, City Slickers, Dan in Real Life, Hamlet w/ David Tennant (although I'm not sure if that counts as a movie since it was a play first)

Music: Tim Minchin, Mitch Benn, Chameleon Circuit, the music videos from The Piano Guys on youtube, a lot of Broadway musicals, Freelance Whales, House of Heroes, Relient K.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
I like to see how many books I can balance while going down the stairs...4, without falling.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
David Tennant

"@BronzeGolem  I know they have them in the states because i got some for christmas.  My mom said she bought them in movie/tv specialty shop.  And if nothing else you can probably get them online."

Poem for a Fangirl

I know I posted this in the video section, but I really enjoyed making this video.  It came out of desperation...ok, not desperation, but i was having a hard time figuring out what i should do for my VEDA vlog, and i just sat down with a pen and paper and this came out.  I'm not one to write poetry, and if i do it is usually in strict forms and set structures, but this felt right.  I'll post the actual poem below, if anyone wants to check it out.  thanks.  DFTBA.…

Who is Doctor Who?

(In accordance with the nerd rule #12 this is to warn you that this blog may contain light spoilers--but not really--about the Doctor Who episodes: Human Nature, The Family of Blood, Journey's End, The Water of Mars, The End of Time, Hungry Earth, and The Pandorica Opens)

Tonight, in preparation for an internet/cable upgrade in the morning, my sister and I were trying to transform our room from "death trap" to "quick, hide that under the pillow."  As per normal, this event…

Tell Me Who I Am

After recently finding out that my second short story "Fire" was going to be published in my school's literary journal, I was asked to write a 50 word bio to be included with the story.  Having complete faith in my fiction, but none in my ability to talk about myself in the third person, I decided to get some help. 

You. 

That's right, you have the chance to decide just how I am going to be perceived by a group of hundreds...OK, more like a hundred people, maybe, who read the…

Strong Women, Small Brain

I have read a book. By all accounts, it was a bad book (horrible, inconceivably horrible) riddled with plot holes the size of Dalek battle fleet. That is not my problem (48% of problem). My problem is that the readers of this novel are told to believe that the heroine (Sara) is an independent woman, and that is why she acts like a complete moron when faced with danger. This…
