I’m sitting here tonight thinking “what to do, what to do?”
My husband however is laughing so hard he has tears rolling down his face.
Apparently, he is now obsessed with watching YouTube on xbox.
For 3 days now, he has been watching Rage Quit videos from Rooster Teeth, or something like that!
Yes, my husband is a geek- just an xbox geek!
Listening to him laugh is enough entertainment.
In fact, its a little too much entertainment… I cannot concentrate while he is laughing like that. It is too funny.
So instead of working tonight, It looks like I will be listening to the hubs laugh at Rage Quit videos….
AND EMPTYING MY INBOX!
Yes, My name is Cari and I have an exploding inbox!
I belong to several groups and have family all over the country, so this makes my inbox crazy!
Its Christmas, so that makes it insane!
I’m addicted to reading blogs, so that explodes it!
My goal by tomorrow is to have an empty inbox… I’m not sure how that is going to happen.
I promise to share my tips with you, as well as a special gift for your support!
Until then, here is a giftie for you!
You can use it as a facebook picture, blog bling, blog post image, email signature, whatever you want.
If you would like this customized, leave a comment with your name, and I will whip you one up!
Since I have failed to actually catch-up, I am doing 2 posts in 1
Life happens… what do you do?
Lego Christmas: A Geek’s Winter Wonderland
At a London Train Station , a 33 foot Christmas Tree has been built.
Out of LEGOS!
It is probably the largest Lego Christmas Tree ever built, and took over 2 months to complete!
Talk about spreading the Christmas Cheer.
Here are more views:
I do believe I am going to try my hand at making Christmas goodies out of Legos!
Maybe a wreath, some ornaments, or a Christmas town.
Be a Friend to a Geek
White October and Hutchhouse has brought a very important cause to my attention!
Not all geeks have friends!
How can this be?
Its just not fair!
So, do your part and to here to pledge to make a difference.
(seriously though, take the time to share a moment with someone who is lonely)
everyone deserves to spend Christmas with somebody. Reach out and show you care!
On to the
well, actually… 2 blogs of the day today!
The first blog that I would like to recognize is Kludgy Mom
I really enjoy this blog.
Truly, a blogger after my own heart!
She blogs about geekiness, mom stuff, wifey stuff, social media….
all of my favorite things.
I look forward to the newsletter popping into my inbox
(in case you can’t tell by now, I am a total blog addict)
So, just hop on over to Kludgy Mom and see the great stuff she has to offer!
Let her know I sent you!
In the words of Jason and Grant,
On to the next!
Trashy Betty is one of my favorite blogs!
She blogs about her artwork, her kids, her life in general, and all things she loves, including other artists.
Her Etsy shop is absolutely amazing!
If I didn’t have a 1 year old running around, I would have everything she makes.
For now, I think I’ll just look at it, and order a skull headband or FTW mirror!
She even does hair and makeup for a Pinup photographer!
Talk about multi-talented!
Enjoy my finds and favorite blogs
So, on “day 3” of my 25 Days of Christmas,
I will share with you a day in the life of a geek Mom at ChristmasTime.
What does a Mom do when:
There is a One year old running around;
from fridge to freezer with magnets in hand?
Oh, and don’t forget he is learning to go Potty!
[bragging on my 14 month old a little]
What does she do when
he is also cutting teeth AGAIN?
Why follow him around, of course!
What does a Wife do when:
Her husband is a geek in his own way?
When he wrestles with a little monster every morning?
When he puts up the tree and lights…
and it looks oh so nice?
What does she do when,
he loves sausage balls, lemon bars, and sugar cookies?
Why bake, of course!
[yes, I know, its scary… I bake, or at least i’m learning to!]
What does a GEEKY WIFE and MOM do at ChristmasTime?
When the new Star Wars goodies come out.
When its shopping season,
and she can’t take her eyes off the secret things she is obsessed with?
Why she drools over STAR WARS goodies, of course!
So, in summary… These are the things that all those Star Wars fans on your nice (or naughty) list will enjoy!
On to the
Today’s blog of the day is one that I subscribe to, and I really enjoy her posts!
Arvee blogs about all things that make her happy.
She’s such a great photographer, I wish I had half her talent.
When I read her blog, I realize that while we are so much alike,
I would actually annoy her to death.
(mostly because I LOVE exclamation points!!!! … see)
This is my favorite photo on her blog:
Just hop on over to flutterhappy,
and let her know I sent you.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas

Today’s Blog of the Day is featuring the amazing Mel at
She creates amazing posers and digital scrap kits!
They are just beautiful, she even has free goodies on her blog.
In fact, she has created a poser set and a digital scrap kit inspired by me!
The best part… they are both free!
How much fun is that!
Here is what I have come up with as a quickie from the Cari poser set and her homespun Christmas kit:
Just hop on over and grab some goodies.

I mean, really… can you tell?
Oh, and there’s also directions!
Happy 60th Birthday Mark Hamill!
May THE FORCE continue to be with you!
How did I find this week's fabulously geeky? Why, by a GOOGLE search of course! [no, I was not looking for STAR WARS SHOES] Sadly though, it turns out that these were created by and Etsy store that is no longer in business. This may be the saddest thing I've found today! But I have a plan! I'm going to make some.... Yes, I said make some!!! I promise to share that adventure, maybe I'll even start a business! What is your latest FABULOUSLY GEEKY find?
Accessories for a Fabulous Geek
1. PINK any computer accessory that is pink will do. I love this mouse, it is on my list. My favorite pink accessory however is my pink “computer light” that plugs into a USB port.
2. A desk microwave. Even though it is actually just a prototype, it is pretty cool. The 160 bucks (and not simoleons) is not so cool.
3. Every girl needs a really fabulous USB thumb drive. Whether its a Lego key chain or a rhinestone heart necklace!
4. ANYTHING made with computer parts! Its even better if you make them yourself! (I will soon share a tutorial on how to make really fabulous jewelry with computer parts)
