HollyShortsChareeCharee Circle BG Label 2This weekend I was in Los Angeles with my boyfriend promoting his short film Low/Fi at the HollyShorts Film Festival. He wrote and directed the short and I was assistant editor, as well as script supervisor for a day. The theater was packed and the audience responded really well. Such a fun weekend!

music Parody songs Christine Circle BG Label 2We took my daughter to her first concert this week – Weird Al! It was so much fun! The audience was of all ages and some were even dressed up based on different songs. They played for almost two hours and did all the hits (new and old). We’ve been walking around and breaking out into Weird Al songs ever since!


Debbie Circle BG Label 2I’ve been watching a series on Geek and Sundry called Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana. It’s a RPG show that’s led by Wil Wheaton. It’s so much fun to follow the story along with the players, and because most of them are actors and/or voice actors, the entire cast does an amazing job bringing the characters to life and it is very easy to be immersed in the world. There are 10 episodes and a really helpful prologue for those who are unfamiliar with RPGs. I loved it immediately and was so excited watching it that I bought a t-shirt after only episode three!

I’m wrapping up this International Geek Girl Pen Pal Club (IGGPPC) photo challenge over on my Instagram account this week. I love doing different photo and Instagram challenges. They’re a fun way to get me thinking even if I’m not overly artistic with my photos. Join me or check it out!

Larissa Circle BG LabelThe Great British Bake Off is back! Love this competition, it’s so relaxing and exciting at the same time! And I’m learning something while watching, too. I mentioned it once before on a previous podcast episode. So excited that it’s back!
