Easy to Eat: Cheeseburger Cupcakes

Husband grumbles at turkey and veggies and when I ask him what HE wanted for dinner he said, “Chili, tacos, cheeseburgers…?”

Uh, I don’t want to make cheeseburgers mid-week, especially knowing he probably won’t him time or space to eat them.

Husband is a software engineer and he works late hours. Often they feed the team at work and if I cook dinner it goes uneaten. Either because it’s too much of a chore to have a sit-down dinner at 10pm or because he’s not that hungry.

So, to combat this time-space issue I started to make, essentially, heavy appetizers for dinner.

Once Husband noted, “You like making food in cupcake tins…”

“So? It’s never been to your detriment.”

“True,” he said, nodding as he shoved the last half of a Taco Kiss into his mouth.

I combined my passion for cupcake size food and Husband’s need for quick, easy and meaty dinner to make Cheeseburger Cupcakes or Nerd Burgers™.

VIDEO: We’re NASA and We Know It (Mars Curiosity)

The most delightfully nerdy thing I’ve seen in a long time. If you’re familiar with the planet Mars and the Mission to it and the Curiosity rover that landed on it, you’re probably also familiar with the Mohawk Meme stemming from the NASA employee caught on video being awesome. Well, building on the success of the mission and the extra publicity from the meme, the NASA nerds have decided to bask in the glory of science and be the umpteenth group to parody LMFAO‘s Sexy and I Know it. Some notable references from the video: Neil deGrasse Tyson An American astrophysicist and science communicator. He is currently the Frederick P. Rose Director

Act Like a Human | Step 2: Don’t Say Weird Things

I have weird habits, hobbies, and thoughts. Sometimes in conversation those things surface and I say weird things. I can be self deprecating and completely geeky. I can be rude and a bit oblivious. I can be ditzy and downright strange. It’s okay to be some of those things some of the time. As a person with ongoing anxiety, both social and general, I sometimes feel nervous about how to act and therefore don’t act right. Or don’t know what to say and consequently say weird things. I’m not always sure if people are laughing with me or at me

SciFi Coasters

NOTE: I wrote this post while I was home sick. While I was able to complete this project, I realize this post needs some serious editing. I’ll get to it. Between bottles of Gatorade and a during a Star Trek marathon I was able to check a project off my list. Yay! I couldn’t literally do NOTHING all day, just live through it… Ew. Today’s project: Turning Nasty, Overused Coasters Into Etched Glass Nerd Art. At some gift giving instance, I can’t remember which, Husband and I got these neat photo coasters. They’re glass with a white frame painted on

Autobots Assemble, Daleks Exterminate

It was so strange though, I know how huge Transformers were, and still are, but I have little to no knowledge about them. I still have to stop myself from saying MegaDeath instead of Megatron. Moreover, I’m never sure if I have the good guy and the bad guy straight. (I’m usually wrong)

“Hey, Husband? Do the good Transfomers have a logo?” I asked from the living room.
