Sex, money, drugs, and booze: all popular reasons for visiting the city of Las Vegas. Entertainment, however, was my intent upon my last trek to this debaucherous town. Cirque du Soleil shows were in abundance; nearly every hotel has one now. There were magic shows (Illusions, MICHAEL!), hypnotists, musicals, comedians, etc. No entertainment stone was left unturned. With so many outlets for merriment, it must be challenging for a show or act to stand out these days.
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).
If you are a regular listener to the podcasts (www.nerdonomy.com) then you may have heard us drop a few references to the nerdonomy home game. Well this game hasn’t really existed…
UNTIL NOW! (Did you guys just get excited? Because I know I did…)
So here’s the game:
The Setup: First subscribe to the podcasts, and tell your friends about it. Pick a friend or two to play with when a new episode comes out, and pick a Nerd to represent you! You earn points based on what your Nerd does during the podcast. For instance, if I’m listening to an episode of Nerds on History, I can pick Eric and someone else can pick Bryan. If one of the other Nerds is guest hosting on the show, like Kevin, then a third person may join, or those points can go to both players.
