Leonard Nimoy and Spock, LLAP

I happen to be on vacation in Walt Disney World this week, but even in this happy place, I found myself teary-eyed when I found out that Leonard Nimoy had died.

Disney Wine?! Help Me Decide Which to Buy!

I am not a wine drinker and have no idea what qualifies as the good stuff. Really, I am clueless. Did it cost $50 a glass or was it from a box that cost $9.99 at the grocery store? I can't tell the difference. So when I buy wine it is based purely on the pretty labels. This is why I have to buy some of this Disney wine.

The Wonderful Crazy of Attending an Auto Show

My #FordNAIAS Welcome Kit
Nerds have conventions like SDCC and NYCC, but gearheads have their own versions of these fan conventions. There's the LA Auto Show and the New York Auto Show, but the big one is, of course, the Detroit Auto Show. It even has an acronym, NAIAS, because every good show needs an acronym.

That Time I Hid In My Daughter's Room To Escape The Gaming
Stuffed. Animals. Everywhere.
Yes, I know I'm all about the gaming in its many forms and am a proponent of letting kids play games to their hearts' content. It doesn't matter if it's a game on the Xbox or their DS or an RPG. Play all the games all the time! Until this weekend when it banished me to my daughter's room.

My Family Has Taken Over My Home With Dungeons and Dragons

The Wakelin Clan playing Dungeons and Dragons
Right this very minute there is an epic Dungeons and Dragons campaign happening in my home. It has completely taken over our downstairs and involves most of my family. I am not partaking of this campaign, but living vicariously by listening to the comments wafting in from the next room. It. Is. Awesome.
