GeekMom Updates

Monday, July 15th, 2013

I’ve been busy over at GeekMom, and I have a few posts I’m really proud of. All of my posts are here, but in the past few weeks I did a roundup of the Best Audio Books for Family Road Trips, Disney’s 2013 Holiday Gift Preview, and HIT Entertainment’s 2013 Holiday Gift Preview. I also wrote I Took My 15-Month-Old to the Movies, analyzing whether or not Hannah is ready for the big screen.

And today my first interview was published. I interviewed Faran Tahir, a Harvard-trained actor and star of Warehouse 13, who will also be in Elysium and Escape Plan. That was an awesome experience.

This Has Been Inspiring Me This Week

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

I’ve always liked Ben Affleck, but I really liked the speech he gave for Argo’s Best Picture win at the Oscars on Sunday. And yes, I know this is tilted. But it’s the best version of the entire speech that I could find.

I get everything about this. Doing things for your kids because they are the mirror that you see yourself in. And why showing them your best self is such a big deal. I even get his awkward statement about marriage being work. It is work, the best kind of work, even when it feels effortless and amazing. You work to show up and be present and support each other every single day. I get that you won’t both be happy in your careers at the same time every day, or even every year, but you always celebrate the other’s highs and pull them through the lows.

I get it, and I really love his story.

This is too ridiculous for words, but it looks like so much fun. Must read the book first.

I’m Very Excited About This

I have no idea what this movie is about, but it has 3 of my favorite people in it. Also, Sarah from Chuck (who Adam has a crush on). And plus, the trailer has “Rock You Like a Hurricane” playing.

Made. Of. Win.
