Live Long And Prosper, Nerds

Hello I'm Sammie and I'm a nerd. I may not have a love of Star Trek or Star Wars or Starbursts that includes costumes and fan fiction, but I am a nerd, nonetheless. I am a pop culture and politics nerd. My versions of insane celebrities are Glenn O'Brien and Jim Himes. If I meet these people, I'm reduced to a shell-shocked super loser who can't stop smiling like Jack Nicholson from "The Shining."

If Tina Fey Is Ugly, I’m Doomed

You might have noticed that lately, magazines and TV are being applauded for finally displaying "average" looking women.

We Hate You, Punxsatawney Phil (and Others)

As most of you know, Punxsutawney Phil woke up and saw his shadow this morning, alerting us that, yes, there will be six more weeks of hell winter. What a prick! Six more weeks of bundling up like an Eskimo for the walk to class? Six more weeks of a constant runny nose and ghostly white complexion? Six more weeks that my wardrobe will consist 100% of sweatpants and Uggs?

Project Runway Rundown: Babies Kinda Scare Me

Ever since that horrible live birth video they made us watch in sex-ed in 5th grade, I’ve been disinclined to anything baby-related. Heidi Klum may look great pregnant, but there’s nothing pretty about a giant head poking out of a screaming woman’s…yeah.

Thank You, Swine Flu!

According to every single headline I've seen this morning, it seems that there is an outbreak of something called the Swine Flu. I don't really know what it is (or what pigs have against us...besides the fact that we only like them for their fatty and delicious goodness), but my finger started hurting last night and I can only assume I have caught it.
