Nerd Love Works

I feel like bragging about my folks today. If anyone ever wondered where my nerdiness comes from, it is most definitely from my parents. They may seem normal to most, but deep down they are the truest nerds that have ever walked the planet. My mother is a Trekkie. My father is a Star Wars fan. I don’t know what the name is for that. Star Warsian? I don’t know. Neither does he, so he just says that he likes Star Wars. The two have some good banter on the topic, most often happening while we are watching one of the two shows. Dad says that Star Trek is too boring. Mum says that Star Wars is just mindless fighting. It’s like the South Pole and the North Pole under the same roof. And yet I know for sure that whoever I get married to, I would want my marriage to look like theirs. They basically met through nerdiness, because my Mum wasn’t really interested in my Dad at all before they started dating. She thought he was just a big brawn-before-brain kind of guy. But she learned that he was far more than that. There’s more to this, but that’s a story for another time. 

But there is one thing that brings them together. What is that? J.R.R. Tolkien. When we were eight, my Mum read The Hobbit to us at night. When we were thirteen, we were finally allowed to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy with Dad, and every year, without fail, we sit down to give it a watch. I can’t think of a single year that we have not taken the time to do it, even while I am in college. My parents were the ones to watch the first “The Hobbit” movie, not me. I got the review of the film from my mum the next day while I was trying to study.

 And when my parents heard that I was writing a fantasy book, it was as though their dreams came true. Both my Mum and my Dad have been keeping tabs on it the whole time, and have even helped make some of the creatures and plot twists. So if you ever feel like your nerd romance will never work out, take my parents as an example. It totally does, and they’ve raised some epic children as well if I do say so myself. The moral of this story? Being yourself is the best thing you can ever be. If you want to get a true soul mate for life, don’t be afraid to show who you are. It might be pretty awesome.

Some riddles for the day!

riddles in the dark

This is only barely related to the blog at all. But, as my niece is currently reading through “The Hobbit”, I decided I would do it. So in the spirit of Bilbo Baggins, let us do a game of riddles! So, here are five riddles for the day. Tomorrow at this same time I will answer them. Some are easy. Some… not so much. Let us begin. 1. What’s smaller than one, greater than five and more than both?…

My Box of Riddles

This is only barely related to the blog at all. But, as my niece is currently reading through “The Hobbit”, I decided I would do it. So in the spirit of Bilbo Baggins, let us do a game of riddles! So, here are five riddles for the day. Tomorrow at this same time I will answer them. Some are easy. Some… not so much.

Let us begin.

1. What’s smaller than one, greater than five and more than both? (American audiences may get this one faster.)

2. Which word in the dictionary is spelled incorrectly?

3. What is always coming but never arrives? (The answer is not your spouse.)

4. Two girls were born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time, in the same month and year and yet they’re not twins. How can this be?

And now for the strangest one of all. Probably not the hardest, but thes strangest.

5. Two children, who were all tangled up in their reckoning of the days of the week, paused on their way to school to straighten matters out. “When the day after tomorrow is yesterday,” said Priscilla, “then ‘today’ will be as far from Sunday as that day was which was ‘today’ when the day before yesterday was tomorrow!”
On which day of the week did this puzzling prattle occur?
