Date Night

Tonight, is date night.  Up until GG came home and reminded me, I had completely forgotten that The Hubs and I had a hot date planned for tonight.  This is how rare date night actually is in my house.

Now, I know many of you will not consider what we have plans to do, as a "hot date".  In fact, most of you wouldn't consider it a "date" at all.  But I am a full fledged geek and have had many years to come to grips with my geek-ed-ness.

For example, I'm a web director and know lots and lots about web coding and data bases.  I also am a huge sci-fi fan.  I loved Star Wars, Star Trek, and Star Gate, as well as Firefly/Serenity, Babylon 5, and FarScape.  And I openly admit, that I've not only been to a sci-fi conventions, I've been to a Star Trek convention and got to see Scottie from Star Trek (albeit from afar) before he passed away.  I've never dressed up, so I don't consider myself a fanatic, but I do love all that stuff.

So don't laugh when I tell you, that tonight, The Hubs and I are heading to the local community college campus to see a JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratories - NASA) lecture on The Mars Laboratory: Search for Habitable Environments.  Hey!  I said don't laugh.  

This may not seem like a good date for a lot of people, but I expect this will be a great presentation, and I can't wait to spend a few hours with The Hubs, sans kids listening to it all. 

Seriously.. Thoughts?

PS.  Those boots, with the cuffs?  Yeah, they're growing on me.


  1. that's so funny, cause Preston and I were just watching a "Battlestar Galactica" rerun (the newer series, not the old one) and talking about how much we miss it being on each Friday night.

  2. Those boots gotta go. next thing you'll have is a sassy purse!

  3. You haven't dressed up??? LMAO!!!!! Aranwen and I stood first in line for HOURS dressed in garb for the first showing of LOTR - for EACH movie! Girl, you are not a true geek until you take the garb to the streets! (we love you anyway)

  4. No Tamlin, you are not a true geek until you take the garb to the streets...on motorcycles!

  5. I think I am a true geek. I took the garb to the airport!
