Geek Chic. It's not all about the fashion.

I did not watch the Golden Globes last night. I get bored with awards shows, and I know that it will be easy enough to catch the re-caps after the show. Anything worth repeating will instantly be on twitter, facebook and youtube within minutes anyways! I did however check the E! application on my new G4 last night... I saw some dresses (nothing too jaw-dropping). I suppose my take on good fashion is different than most, because what some people are calling stunning, I find hideous!
Number one culprit, January Jones.
 Sure she has a gorgeous figure, and the color looks stunning on her with her flaxen locks and scarlet lips...but hello!? Bondage much? Put this dress in black, give her a whip and she is every creepy comic book lovers fantasy woman. And since I already took it there...I think her boobs look AWFUL. They are strapped in with nowhere to go. Many may disagree, but I give a big thumbs down on this look.

But I won't say anything more on the fashion, because anything worth saying has already been said. What drew my attention more was the list of quotes from throughout the night. I have to say my favorite quote of all, and the one going on my Facebook page, was from Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory...
"To be geeky about anything is to feel passionately about it... to absorb 
yourself with it. And I think that's a really attractive trait in somebody, 
and also very necessary to be successful at something."

I just simply adore everything about this, and I love it. My husband is a geek, and I love him for it. He is fascinated by art, mobile communications, music and music mastering... He has a passion, and a drive to always learn more or have that interesting off-the-wall fact. We challenge one another to use large vocabulary. We are Geeks...but its those things that also make us more interesting people, and the people that each of us love.

Now I really want to represent and go buy this....
Totally red carpet worthy, right?

Today I am working from home as my first day at my new job. Cup of coffee, cuddling puppies and my laptop ready to receive emails. Pretty fantastic first day! Sadly, hubby is leaving soon to head to work and I will miss him very much. Good thing I have a fantastic line-up to keep me company tonight!
An all new episode!
A weekly obsession...
A new favorite. I can't believe I didn't watch the first season!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day off today, and to those who don't I hope you get out soon and can go relax at home! Best wishes and Happy Martin Luther King Day everyone!!!

PS- Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Happy MLK day to you dear.

I have to agree with you on January. She wasn't on my worst dressed list but she was no favorite of mine.
Can't wait for PLL and The Bachelor tonight.

So cute! You need that necklace for sure!!! I don't know that I had a favorite from last night. I think they were all just okay. XOXO

Marian said...

Can't complain when you are working from home. Wish I could do it more often!! And unfortunately, I loved January's outfit. I can see the bondage theme, but I think she looked gorgeous

What the F is up with the above comment?

Anywho...I love geeks. January's dress was a little confusing...

Why American men should boycott American women


I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

I felt the exact same way about JJ's dress...her chest looked so strange, like she was wearing a big red band-aid!

And I love Castle! I just started watching this season on Hulu and I think it's so funny!
