Due to scheduling difficulties, we had to postpone Part II of our History of Mexico. Instead, Eric and Bryan introduce the WHEEL OF HISTORY. See what it turns out (pun intended)! Enjoy!
Here we are again, Valentine’s Day, or less that affectionately known to others as singles awareness day. Today is a time for many to celebrate love, but for this nerdy girl, I see it as a time to celebrate chocolate, with the perk of seeing nerdy themed valentines (like these, these, and this).
Now it may not come as a surprise to some of you, but I’ve never been one to really get into celebrating this holiday. I have plenty of cynical and deeply personal reasons for this, but one thing is that I don’t quite understand the point of spending money lame hallmark cards that don’t quite come from the heart,when there are better options (see nerdy valentines above).
Last week, my NoF cohost Bryan and I went to see Amour. If you’re not already aware (for shame, reader), this is one of the big nominees for this year’s Academy Awards. It’s going up for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture. It already won Best Foreign Language Film for the Golden Globes this year. That in itself is reason to consider seeing this movie, even if you aren’t a fan of foreign film.
