I’ve been on a books about music kick lately. Which means I’ve also been thinking a lot about music lately. Most recently, I’ve been thinking about mixtapes and why playlists just can’t compare. (Speaking of which, have you read Love is a Mixtape yet? If not, stop reading this and go read


Claire’s Happiness Project: Putting it all together

These days I feel like the Roman goddess Iustitia: Blindfolded, armed, and barely able to keep my scales balanced. I have no idea how I got here, where I’m going, or how to keep myself from completely losing my mind. But, hey, all it’s all in a day work, right? I honestly can’t

So Your Partner is Going to Gen Con

Gen Con starts on Thursday.  (Am I the only one who’s completely unprepared?) Which for most Pure Geekery readers means four days of gaming wonderfulness. But what about those of you who don’t game? Or those of you who have a gaming spouse and are going to be a bachelor/bachelorette for those

I started a new job this week! Yay! However, that also means I need to reorganize my writing time. So bear with me for a couple weeks while I work out my new schedule! Getting used to work  schedule again after two years of grad school is rough and I miss out
