Some of the (Dorky) Things my Husband Has Taught Me

Happy Friday, y'all! In the few minutes I have, I just wanted to talk about my husband. He's awesome. One of the things that makes him so awesome is is infinite knowledge of pop culture. Seriously, if you were playing Trivial Pursuit, you'd want him on your team. Besides being a history buff, he knows all things Star Wars, Star Trek, and Marvel Comics. Being an uber girly girl, these things sounded repulsive to me before I met him, but who knew I'd grow to enjoy a couple of these really dorky things. For the record, I don't think of the term "dorky" as being negative in any shape form or fashion. Hell, I have a math degree and get excited over math riddles; I have no room for judgment. Nerds unite!

So, I leave you with a few of the dorky my husband has taught me to appreciate.

1. Lando Calrissian

Billy Dee in all of his Star Wars Glory
I mean who knew Billy Dee in all of his old-school fineness was traipsing around outer space running things?!?

2. I like shows about zombies.

I still remember the cold, rainy day that we stayed in and watched the first season of The Walking Dead. Yup, the whole thing. Who knew a story about folks getting eaten up by zombies could be so juicy? It's really messy...affairs, paternity issues, and the like. That stuff is almost better than the action scenes. I love the show. It's one of the few shows that I actually follow. I can't wait for it to come back next month. I'll be right on the couch next to my hubby, hiding under covers and on the verge of jumping on his lap.

3. Star Wars

I mentioned Lando a little earlier, but I think Star Wars deserved its own shout out. I did not see my first Star Wars movie until I was 35. Not to say that I want to sit around and watch them, but I will say that after seeing the first one, I have a new respect for the movies. I thought I was in for a bunch of silliness, but wow, the message! I love how Obi-Wan Kenobi explains what the Force means. Take it how you want to, but to me, he was explaining the higher power that sustains us. I know I move, live, and breathe because of the Force that heads my life. I even engraved the hubby's wedding band with "May the Force be with us." I didn't even know how powerful that was in the moment that I did it. Yup, I got all of that from about a minute of the movie. I won't be around here swinging no light sabers (yes, Hubby owns some :-/), but Hans Solo & 'nem are alright with me.

So these are just a few of the things I've come to appreciate since meeting the hubster. I'll be back with more from time to time. Happy Friday!!! Make the most of your weekend!

May the force be with you until next time...


  1. I am OBSESSED with The Walking Dead. I like zombie-related stuff in general, but The Walking Dead? Ooo-weee that's some good stuff right there. I'm counting the days until the series starts back up again. Maybe someday I'll finally stop hating Michonne and her constant angry-face.

    By the way, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! And I'm digging your blog.

  2. Ok, I thought I was the only one who felt that way about Michonne. Always scowling...ugh.

    We are hardcore fans. We watch the Talking Dead, read all of the recaps, everything. I'm counting down! The new shows are almost here.

  3. I want to like Michonne but she's so angry all the time. Her face is always stuck in scowling mode. I mean, I know the zombie apocalypse is serious business but sheesh, lighten up. Even when she does something cool, I'm like, "That was tight. But I still hate you." LOL
