Day 14: Nerd News
Seriously, though, Thursdays are cool for one reason: Nerd News on Chocolate & Cream Cake. Every Thursday my friend, Mandy Murtis, rounds up links to all the interesting nerdy goings-on from around the net along with some awesome artwork and other tidbits and posts everything so lazy people like me don't have to look this stuff up myself. The best part of the whole thing is that most weeks I get to pretend to be a reporter. If I stumble onto something I think might be worthy of Nerd News I send it to Mandy and I get credit on her blog. I recognition without really doing anything! If only it were a paying position. Most weeks this turns into a competition of sorts between me and a few others to see who can get the most mentions. I always win, of course.
So go forth, dear readers, and make Mandy Murtis and Nerd News famous!
One more time, in case you missed it:
Chocolate & Cream Cake
Update: I just read today's Nerd News and here is the current tally.
Mariel (Who?): 1
Shaun: 1 (pitiful)
Colt: 3 (not bad)
Me: 5! Well, technically there are only 4 mentions, BUT that Boba Fett movie was totally from me, so 5.
