I trust you've heard about 'Sharpie' and 'Taser' playing in the Puppy Bowl, right?

So adorable.

Thank you, fannish osmosis, I didn't even need to read the article to know what those names meant.

Further cuteness to be found at ROMP Italian Greyhound Rescue's Facebook page.

Bleghh

Well, my throat isn't quite as sore today as it was last night (ow) but I definitely have a cold. Yech.

But in the realm of happy things, I received a beautiful birthday card from my aunt (lasercut card, birds among willow branches) and the DVD of Jamie at Home S1.

Also, I really have to get around to reading Seanan McGuire's books.

Growing up a girl geek and becoming a geek girl.

I've been watching the "fake geek girl" mess go around, and it feels like middle school. It feels like people going "your passions don't match my passions, ergo your passions must be invalid." And I say fuck. That. Noise. Geeks like things. That's why we exist.

I've had people in my my life who didn't 'get' me, including family, and that could be hurtful. But mostly I've been lucky to be around people who understood or at least accepted if they didn't understand. Why is that so hard?

Online, I've often felt that I don't get as passionate or as involved with things as others do, partly due to illness, partly by nature, but really, it's to each their own. Who decides what's enough passion or involvement?

Every individual geek, for themselves and no other.
