Nerd Girls & NyQuil

Seeing as this is my first blog post on this page, I figured I better give you a little background about myself before you delve into the eccentric ramblings that sometimes seem more mad than eccentric. My name is Susie. I am 32 going on 12 and continually think that I'm still 18 and can still do and eat anything without consequence. I should have left all of that behind 14 years and 3 children ago but, alas, here we are.

Being a mom is sometimes hard. Being a mom when you're sick sucks. Mom's don't get sick days. So, this mom, wanting to get some rest and block the world out, took some NyQuil. Because nothing helps more than the night-time reading, writing, gaming, and obsessing about fictional characters while you're trying to rest medicine. While I didn't get much rest, I did have some interesting ideas and I thought I would share them.

My first thought was whomever created Dog With a Blog should be tarred and feathered. Seriously. Didn't they torture us enough already with Hannah Montana? I wasn't sure if I was nauseated from being sick, having to watch crap television, or remembering the constant amount of saliva that was always in corner of Miley's mouth (what was up with that?!).

After the nausea thankfully passed, and I went to lie down, I started wondering about better topics-books. I'm currently rereading Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead (who is my favorite author). It's one of my favorite series of books. I tend to stick to the paranormal genre because, as the word itself proclaims, it's beyond normal. Who wouldn't want to live in a world with wizards and succubi, vampires and werewolves, angels and demons?  All the characters we love so much that we think of them as our friends and carry them in our hearts live there. We live their lives along side them, and often fall asleep with them in our arms.

After my fan-girl moment, I thought that I should share these thoughts with the world. I know I'm not the only super obsessed, nerdy fan-girl out there. That's what led me here to this moment, to unite my fellow nerds (admit it, you totally are one) and share my fan-girl moments with book/tv/movie/food reviews. But mostly just to ramble on and on about my favorite things. So, I hope you come back and join me and tell me what you're obsessing about so I can join you.
