My Geek Birthday – Doctor Who TARDIS Cake and Cookie Jar

I was totally overwhelmed and touched by all the birthday wishes I received last week!  My thanks to all of you that sent messages through Facebook, ultimately bringing the social networking goliath to its knees on Thursday.  I was on the road for work on my actual birthday, but I was able to catch dinner […]

Dragon*Con 2010 Recap – My Weekend of Insanity (lots of pics!)

Dragon*Con, my home away from home.  I believe this was my 10th appearance at this convention and it was definitely one of the better ones! Attended lots of panels, hung out with my friends, met some celebrities, drank far too much, took over 600 photos, and generally had a great time.  Sometime in the near […]

84 Degrees is Warmer than You May Think

Our home air conditioner broke this past weekend. It was 84 degrees inside my house at midnight last night, so trust me when I say that 84 degrees may be warmer than you think. I live in Florida. During the summer, we as a people spend most of our days inside air conditioned buildings, or […]

Thank You Scraps!

Folks, I owe a tremendous thanks to my fellow blogger, Scraps!  I was experiencing a problem with my new WordPress theme that I simply couldn’t fix myself.  She offered her assistance and worked through the code with me.  She found the bug and told me exactly how to fix it.  THANK YOU SCRAPS!  You’re my […]

Once Upon a Geek has regenerated!

An update on some web site administration today.  Some of you may have noticed that ONCE UPON A GEEK looks a little different today.  The changes were cosmetically minor, so don’t feel bad if you didn’t see a difference.  While the changes will seem minor to you, they are tremendous to me!  Ever since I […]

Father’s Day for Geeks!

I hope all the geek-dads out there had an awesome Father’s Day!  Mine was fantastic and lasted the whole weekend!  Had some good solid family time, got to wander the aisles of a bookstore at my own pace (one of my favorite things to do!), ate an enormous Sonny’s BBQ feast for dinner Saturday, watched […]
