Geeks on Spring Break

I teach at a nifty little place named Seton Hill University. I'm one of the resident geeks there too, only they call me a professor instead of a geek. Next week SHU is on spring break, and I've got all sorts of geeky plans to fill up my time :)

About a month ago I started playing World of Warcraft. I'm certainly not new to the MMORPG genre. I shepherded my Everquest character from creation to level 68. I've also done my time in EQ2, and dabbled in a handful of other MMORPGs. I am however new to WoW. My little shammy is currently level 33, and I want to put a good 10 levels on her over the next week. That won't catch me up to my level 80 friends, but it'll give me a boost :)

After I started watching SGA, I knew that it would not be long before I wanted to see Stargate SG-1. Earlier this week I checked out prices on Amazon, and ordered the first season. I did not get quite as good of a good deal on it as I did with the SGA seasons at Best Buy, but the price wasn't bad either. I did see the Stargate movie many years ago, and I can't wait to find out how the television hit got started.

Lastly, I have a couple of ideas for really cool LLG blog posts. The thing holding me back is that these are going to take some time to gather the material for. Over break I'll have some time and I can do just that. So, you can look forward to a couple of extra special posts in the future :) If you would like some good reading in the mean time, back when I was first blogging, I wrote this awesome post on geeky grocery shopping. Check it out! :)
