For the Love of Nerd 4: Pancake Making

It took me till my late teen years to discover this glorious activity, but ever since, it has become my pride and joy. I work at a restaurant that serves breakfast all day (yay for Perkins), but my pancakes are better (I think) than the Buttermilk Five. I realize that is a gutsy boast, but I don't feel any pressure to prove it because making good pancakes is not exactly something challenged by anyone who eats pancakes. I suppose if you like pancakes… Continue

A Summer of These Nights

[This is weird for me to be blogging here twice in one week*]

My brother, Johnny, is one of my best friends. Sometimes I find myself forgetting that he is my older brother, part of the family that I generally resent. We share the same gene pool, the same brown eyes, and the same childhood. Johnny was born only 13 months before I appeared on the scene. We were close enough in age to be put in the same grade for kindergarten but split up when I was sent to pre-first and Johnny went… Continue

Two Parts

First of all, I've set up a new blog on where I will be reviewing books that I read. You may ask yourself, why is this any different from any other book reviwer? I will tell you why. I'm not a fancy nerdfighter, just a regular nerd fighter who likes to read and wants to share my normal, ordinary, opinion. Please check it out as you get time to and as I add more things to the blog.

I got my Tetris jab today. I don't actually know what it's called but I do know that it sounds like Tetris so i'm gonna call it that. It didn't really hurt that much but according to my friends it's gonna kill my arm tommorow. My mother bought me some winegums afterwards so that was good =].

Blog #2

One thing I adore about reading is finding thought-provoking lines that either address a problem I’m dealing with, or inspire me to reflect on various aspects of life. However, 90% of the time I simply underline the passage and move on to the rest of the story, without really giving it ample consideration.

This afternoon I started rereading Looking for Alaska while my family went shopping at the mall. There were certain phrases that caught my eye while I read: “the Great… Continue

I love Nerdfighters

I love Nerdfighters because we don't deify imbecility. I love the ning because it's so full of thoughtful forums. I can't think of anywhere else I could find such well-phrased, civilized discussions about tricky topics. Nerdfighteria is like a release from discussions where one person begins with a ridiculous claim, the other person negates it thoughtfully, and the first person gets flustered, gives up, and insults the other person for disagreeing. I love that… Continue

Not to be stupid. But.

When talking about B2.0 or Nerdfighters, I always refrain from saying "It's changed my life." Every time.

But it's true. I feel like I matter. I feel like a part of something. Every time I drop the most causal "That's really jokes" or intend to start up a conversation about WorldSuck, I feel like people care enough to let me in on their inside jokes. I feel...special.

Nerdfighters is one of the best things that's happened to me. The only thing that has ever made me feel… Continue

Meowkins gathering- London, 25/07/2009

On the 25th of July, we attended Mike Lee's Meowkin gathering. It was an awesome day and has given us the gathering bug! I just want to describe the day to anyone interested =)

Okay, so as we live the otherside of the country to London we had some problems with transport...the train is pretty pricey so we decided to take the bus instead which was about £20-30 cheaper. It was all good, we went to the correct bus stop as put on the map by the bus was a bit late so we did… Continue

Good Omens

by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

The subject here is the Apocalypse and the coming of the Anti-Christ...or more importantly, Aziraphale (angel, rare book collector, on the side of Good since the Garden of Eden) and his counterpart, Crowley (who scares his plants into growing beautifully, drives a 1926 black Bentley, played the part of the serpent in the Garden of Eden), and their quest to keep the ineffable plan on track. Told mostly over the course of only a few days, and… Continue

Last night I dreamt that...

I was with Hayley G Hoover (, Kristina Horner (, some girl who knew Kristina and Hayley, and a guy who knew the three other girls well. We were all at a huge boarding school, and we all selled cigarettes. They charged $2 per cigarette most of the time, but at some special point in the day, they charged $10 per cigarette. I charged $1 normally, and $2 at that one time where cigarettes were more expensive. There was a concession stand at… Continue

Book Review: Howl's Moving Castle (Diana Wynne Jones, 1986)

Disclaimer: I think it's fair to mention that I saw the Studio Ghibli production long before I read this book. That fact has had a significant influence on how I understood this novel and the events and characters therein.

Howl's Moving Castle is, to the best of my knowledge, the first book by Diana Wynne Jones that I've ever read. If I had to pick one word to describe her writing, I would probably go… Continue

Just Another Nerdfighter making videos.

What?! Another Nerdfighter making videos, how cliche. No you see we are supposed to be decreasing suck so it is all good. So yes. I am making videos now. My user name on Youtube is 'arubberduckiedied.' Such a weird username I understand. My videos are not the best out there and they are not very good but at least I try. This is also my first blog post. Uber! Hi fellow Nerdfighters. 8]

Other than making videos lately I have joined a Historical Sword fighting class and I have also returned… Continue
