formspring.me

You are trapped in a room with two exits. One exit leads to certain death, the other leads to freedom. Each exit is guarded by a robot. One robot always lies and the other always tells the truth but you do not know which is which. You are allowed to ask one robot one question. What question do you ask and what door do you choose?

Would the other robot tell me if this door leads to freedom?

(I might have looked up the clip from Labyrinth before answering. And by might, I totally did. So blame Labyrinth if I'm wrong and not my horrible deductive logic skills.)

Ask me anything

Pepsi

Meet Pepsi, the cutest cat in the world. She's 18 1/2 and we've had her since she was a kitten. I got her from my friend Lacey, who was my best friend in elementary school.

Pepsi has lost her hearing by now and has slowed down a bit, but she's still full of mischief.

build your own smitten kitchen: a practical gift guide

If I won the lottery, I would go back to this list and buy...well, most of it. Pretty sure I don't need to pith a grapefruit, but it would be pretty awesome to have a bread knife and a few of the other things she talks about.

Postcard for Grandma, 2

Bananas have special significance for my family. I also hate the smell of bananas and have actually almost thrown up a few times when smelling them in confined quarters. These two facts are in no way related.

Postcard for Grandma, 1

This is the Liberty Memorial in KCMO. It is a World War 1 memorial/museum. The museum is located beneath the base of the pillar. The two buildings flanking the pillar are the original museum/meeting hall. You can go up in the pillar and (I am told) get a great view of KC. Sadly, I can't vouch for that because the elevator was being worked on when I visited, so they weren't letting anyone go up.

Many people in KC like to make cracks about the giant penis and you know what? I'm one of them.

Cupcakes

I'm a member of Houlihan's HQ and got an email about their upcoming cupcake offerings. They let us know about cupcakes and you KNOW my ears perked up for that.

On the left is a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and what looks like crushed butterfinger on top. Tasty, but the frosting was goopy and slid off the cupcake in spots.

In the middle is vanilla with vanilla frosting and white chocolate shavings. Oddly enough, it also had half a starlight mint on top. This frosting was too thick and didn't pull away when I pulled part of the cake away. The cake itself was nothing special, either. Gotta give it some love for the white chocolate shavings.

On the right is a chocolate cake with Kahlua frosting. The cake was too crumbly, the frosting was too thick, but it was tasty.

Overall, the peanut butter won for taste and ease of eating. If I was out with a group of friend and they wanted to split cupcakes, I would not turn them down. Too much for just me, however. I will spare you a picture of the carnage I left behind.

Comic FAIL

So, I occasionally have a bout of nerdiness. Today, let me bring you my meager (yet apparently better than Carl Moore's) comic book knowledge.

Batman is a DC Comics property. The lame joke in the strip is assuming Batman is a Marvel property. Batman is (thanks to DC Comics) Sony's bitch, not Disney's.

UserFriendly Tribue to Mary Travers

I remember that I went to a Peter Paul and Mary concert when I was little. I am told that I fell asleep during the concert, but hey--I was a kid! I grew up listening to PP&M, so it was sad to hear about Mary Travers passing away.

So You Think You Can Judge, Adam Shankman? - E! Online

Adam Shankman, choreographer, director and Miley Cyrus photo scandal fan-flamer, is moving from frequent to permanent fixture on the So You Think You Can Dance dais this season, filling out the judging trifecta alongside Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe.

Hey, pretty cool! Adam has done a good job of judging in the past and quite honestly, the ever-changing judges were getting annoying. I'm sorry, but I did not need MORE Lil'C this season!

Allergy Awareness Pinback Button 5 Pack by geekdetails on Etsy

Allergy Awareness Pinback Button 5 Pack

Allergy Awareness Pinback Button 5 Pack
zoom
Description Does your child have an allergy that people around them need to be aware of but you're not always there to tell them? This listing is for 5 pinback buttons featuring the allergy information, color, and center image of your choice.

Want a peanut allergy button in blue with a truck? We can do that!

A milk allergy button in purple with a flower? We can do that too.

We here at geek details are well aware that not every child can vocalize their allergy yet and that sometimes a little help is needed to remind people of the allergies a child has. Why not do it in a fun reusable way?


Each button is handpressed using a Tecre button maker. This means that there are no bumpy edges or bits of mylar sticking out around the edges. All my buttons look like professionally made buttons you'd buy from any brick and mortar because they are made using the same professional grade parts and machine, but come from my home to yours.

Have a kid with allergies? This pinback button set is perfect!

Upcoming Birthday

Those of you related to me (most of you) or who I hang out with on a regular basis (I'm guessing the rest of you), may have been wondering where my mile-long list of birthday requests has been. After all, it's a mere 22 days until that day when Mom finally got to see me and scold me for being, oh, three weeks late. Anyways. Mom's already ordered my present from her, so she's all set. But what about the rest of you? What will you give me? I have a few humble suggestions (none of which are a car, house, or David Tennant. That said, if you give me David Tennant for my birthday you are the awesomest person EVER). The list starts and the rambling ends...NOW! 1. Buffy Staked Edward t-shirt. Because really? She totally would have. 2. Stop Kitten Poker tank top. This is a concern of mine and my boobs are willing to advertise that fact. 3. Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! t-shirt. Perhaps one of the greatest lines ever uttered in a TV show. Best served with plastic dinosaurs. 4. Huge Tracts of Land t-shirt. I know of at least three pervy guy friends who are now fighting over the chance to adorn me with this t-shirt. 5. You never forget your first Doctor t-shirt. Ah, Eccleston. You were FANTASTIC! 6. A few words from Spike. You are picturing this framed and up on a wall somewhere, aren't you? Is it just me? This really belongs in my kitchen, I promise. Or above the computer. Maybe I need two? 7. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. Great book, interesting TV show (of the episodes I've seen), but where Gaiman shines is in the graphic novel format and so I must acquire this. You can acquire this at Borders, if Amazon is too fancy for you. 8 (which really wanted to be 9 but I resisted). Buffy: Omnibus 2. I have the first omnibus and I want another. Is that too much to ask? Probably, considering all the other crap I have listed. All the same, feed the Buffy/comics addiction. It's fun! 9 (YES I AM AT 9 AND MY FINGERS ARE HAPPY). Bones: Season 3. Oh David Boreanz, I must have some quality Boreanz staring time. Plus, I never quite saw all these episodes. Help me out! 10. Socks From the Toe Up. You didn't really think I was going to put together a birthday list that had nothing fibery whatsoever in it, did you? How cute. 11. Royals tickets. You know, they don't entirely suck this year. I think I should reward them with my presence. Buy two tickets and take me to the game! Sunday games are the best, with buck night Fridays running a close second. 12. Stand mixer. I have so much fun baking and yet I do not have a stand mixer. Do you know how annoying it is to try to cream butter and sugar by hand or with a handheld mixer? I am far too clumsy for that! I have seriously dropped my mixing bowl before. Save me! 13. Gift cards are always a lovely and popular choice. Mademoiselle enjoys visits to such fine establishments as Borders, Barnes and Noble, MicroCenter, Lane Bryant, Yarn Shop and More, The Studio and Amazon.com.

Go Royals!

As a long-time Royals fan, I am used to having the boys in blue be a punchline whenever a late night comic is running low on material. However, things are changing. We have a new batting coach and some great players this year. The Royals are currently at the top of their division and we have a pitcher on the cover of Sports Illustrated. We are actually getting positive attention! I have decided that, in support of the awesome job they are doing, if the Royals get to the playoffs this year, my pink streaks are turning blue! If you want to join in on the fun, let me know. Maybe we can all go to a game with our blue hair!

Awesome Day!

Today has just kicked ass! I went to Pop Culture Comix to partake in Free Comic Book Day and was greeted by stormtroopers! I then went to Maui Express where I had a truly tasty chicken/steak bowl. Afterwards, I went to the library to pass some time (and yes, see if the cute librarian was there). While I had no eye candy, I did get some reading in. While there, I noticed my phone was ringing and picked up. Dan wanted to know if I would like to go see Cake tonight. Hmm..YES! Went to Elite Comics and got more free books and was greeted by Jedi! The Force is obviously strong in JoCo. I then had to go to work for six hours, but I had hardly anything to do, so I got to twiddle my thumbs and stay awake. Much more relaxing than my afternoon would have been, probably. While at work, I got two more offers of things to do tonight, but passed because free tickets to Cake beats all. I then went and saw a truly KICK ASS show. I only knew a few songs, but the music was so great I was able to sing along and dance to the music without really knowing it. I have plans for payday that involves quality time with Amazon MP3 and searching for Cake. :-) I think I have a new favorite band--their sound is awesome. More rock bands need a horn. After the show, I found my way out of the Crossroads district all by my lonesome. Those who know my sense of direction and complete incomprehension of the downtown area (and who probably aren't even reading this blog) are suitably impressed. I'd like to think that there are a good five or six people who, around 11 tonight, suddenly felt very proud of me. Buoyed by my success at leaving the Crossroads without getting lost, I called my friend Robby and we went out to Perkins for a late night meal. While the hot Spike-like waiter no longer works there, it was fun to sit there and talk. On my way home, I might have been speeding a teensy bit through town and I got pulled over. "What does that have to do with an awesome day?" you ask. I got left off with a warning. I think the cop may have been slightly amused by my answer of "I have to pee" when he asked why I was speeding. So, I started out today thinking I would get a free comic or two and then work and come home and do nothing. Instead, I got seven free comics, tasty food, a relaxing afternoon, access to a great concert, hung out with friends and did NOT get a speeding ticket. Awesome day, my friends. Awesome day.

Phoenix!

I'm going to Phoenix next month! My grandma bought me a ticket so I can come visit her and see what Phoenix is like when it's not 106 degrees outside. So far we have decided to go to IKEA, Trader Joes, a few local yarn shops and do the Scottsdale art walk. Any other ideas for me? This is going to be fun. My first time flying somewhere by myself for nearly ten years (my last trip to Phoenix, in fact!).

Evil Bastards

As you may know, I am a bit of a Doctor Who fan.  When I found out that my TV boyfriend David Tennant was stepping down, I may have accidentally sworn loudly while at work.   *ahem*   I didn't think anyone could eclipse Christopher Eccleston for me, but David Tennant did, so I am not completely without hope for the 11th Doctor.  I have been watching the nerdy Doctor Who news sites, hoping for information on who the next Doctor Who would be.  I loved David Morrissey in "The Next Doctor" Christmas special for 2008 (Which I, um, totally watched legally.  Yeah.).   So, what does the BBC do to me?  Announce that they are going to tell us who the new Doctor is. TOMORROW. Evil bastards, making me wait.
