In Anticipation of Sunday…

Super Bowl XLVII. Who will YOU be rooting for? (image source) You know I love me my Ravens. (I predicted a Harbaugh Bowl at the beginning of the playoffs!) And you know I love me some visualized data. So in honor of my “the in-laws have gone on vacation for 2 weeks leaving me alone to […]

Google Translate: Star Wars Edition

The last one is the best.  😉 Via Comfortably Awkward. P.S. — Life in the Geek in Heels household has been pretty chaotic, and will probably remain so for the next week or two. Posts may continue to be light and/or unintelligent. The upside? There’s another giveaway in works. (Have you entered my circle lens […]

Incredible Amazon Page Resumé

I have featured some special resumés here in the past, and I have to say that this one takes the cake. Philippe Dubost, a web product manager in Paris, created a fake Amazon product page to showcase his skillset and talents.

How a Key Works

You guys, it’s sooooo cold. And sooo windy. And with a kid who just recovered from a cold — right after I got sick, to boot — all I want to do is stay in bed under three layers of blankets and watch episodes of Suits (my latest obsession). Alas, the life of a SAHM does not […]

If NFL Quarterbacks Were Mobile Phones…

Two teams will begin to ready themselves for one of the biggest games they will ever play, while the remaining two will go home crestfallen and utterly disappointed (so close, yet so far…).

And sometimes, you can’t help but wonder if the interpreter didn’t completely overthink a simple concept.  😉 Here’s a compilation of these crazy fan theories via Unreality Mag.

From Dating to Messaging to Texting

Over the weekend, I read a NYTimes article titled The End of Courtship? which questions the new millennials’ methods of dating — or, in this case, not dating. Instead of dinner-and-a-movie, which seems as obsolete as a rotary phone, they rendezvous over phone texts, Facebook posts, instant messages and other “non-dates” that are leaving a generation […]
