The Bridge of Nerdfighteria

Who would cross the Bridge of Nerdfighteria must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.

What . . . is your Nerdfighter Power?

What . . . is you Quest?

What . . . is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Kids say the darndest things . . .

You know, they will walk right up to you and say things like . . . you're fat . . . you have boogers . . . Is there a baby in your tummy? . . . Did you swallow it? . . . They just say whateve pops into their heads with no concern for manners or being polite. What a blessing such candid speach can be. My son noticed a strange freckle on my father's neck. No one else noticed and we would be too polite to say "what is that wierd creepything on your neck?" We are taught not to notices those things.… Continue

Nerdfighters supporting Adoption

Do you know what's funny? So many people support adoption, but only partially. They are very supportive when they here that we are adopting, or have adopted. But when it comes to someone placing a baby for adoption, they are NOT supportive. They become judgemental and harsh. Often they feel that they somehow have the right to ask highly personal and really rude questions. It's quite shocking really.





Here's the thing, you can't support adoption if you don't supports all aspects… Continue

New Year, New Goals, Thinking Green.

Green goals for the new year that every Nerdfighter can accomplish:







1) Replace old light bulbs with cool green bulbs--swirly, bright and effective! (But we've all done that, right?)







2) Read "Looking for Alaska" (I read "An Abundance of Katherines" last year--maybe I'll write a review *Watch this space*)







3) Don't bag it! Bring a cloth bag to the store with you, or, if that isn't feasible, at least say 'no thanks' when you have… Continue

Hi! Another person just mentioned an Elder NF Project, and I thought of an idea:

I think a good elder NF project would be to make a list of our most influential books we read in our teens/twenties to recommend to the younger set, what do you think? I mean books that helped shape who you are and altered the course of your thinking, or even your life. So if we each only had one or two books that were most powerful to us, we could still compile a long list.

It was Enox66 who was interested and I suggested this to - uh, I just realized I don't know if it's he or she, but a libarian, so let's be stereotypical and assume "she" - anyway, I suggested this to her and she thought it was a good idea.

"You and I have lots of nerdfighterly stuff in common! Mommy, Heroes, dark Chocolate, LDS history, Wrong-righter and Joss whedon!"
wow, yay!

i come by the lds history nerdfighterness honestly, i lived in Lorain Ohio as a youth. Something happens when you routinely walk the physical area where things happened. the church owns the Johnson farm and runs it, so once a month we'd go there and do something farmly depending on the season, and tour the Johnson home. we'd walk around... "this is where they took Joseph to tar and feather him... these are the sandstone steps where he stood the next morning for Sunday sermon, and looked out at members of the mob, and spoke on... brotherly love. this is how many mobsters repented and got baptized that day..."

i was excited that Joseph is the lesson plan for the next two years. i get to look smart.
