Let’s make this Thero Day!

Or maybe not. Today I’ve learnt something new, apparently it’s Scrabble Day, a day when the world celebrates…Scrabble. To be honest, I’m not sure Scrabble needs a day to be celebrated but maybe I’m just weird. Anyway, this strange discovery has led me looking up other ‘special’ days where people celebrate things; to my surprise there are alot of days like these and because I am such a nice person, I’ve decided to share some of the more geeky ones with you:

  • 16th January- Appreciate a Dragon Day. Definitely one for the Khaleesi and Dovahkiin.
  • 10th March- Mario Day. Yep, that famous plumber has day dedicated to him, along with all those Mario spin off games.
  • 1st May- Batman Day. Because he’s Batman!
  • 13th July- Embrace Your Geekiness Day. To be honest, this is one I probably celebrate almost everyday…
  • 12th September- Video Games Day. Ha, like I need a reason to play video games…
  • 8th December- Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day. One for the Whovians.

There are a lot more geeky days, like Tolkien Reading Day, Superman Day and even Dr. Seuss Day but the list would be way too long. Hopefully this has helped someone else discover something new, if not, at least I’ve been able to ramble on for a few sentences!

Gotta bake ’em all! (Yes it’s a cheesy title…)

Something I enjoy doing is baking and today I tried something a little more decorative than what I normally do. Here are the fruits (or more accurately, cakes) of my labours…

To bake them was my real test... Ok, I'll stop with the cheesy pokemon phrases...

Apologies for the really fuzzy picture but it was an impromptu photo on my phone. I actually made twelve of these but only these six were ready at the time. The actual cake is just a basic cupcake recipe, with royal icing, black icing and white chocolate buttons to make the pokeball shape. Since they seemed to have worked out OK (haven’t eaten any, yet!), I maybe a bit more adventurous with my next baking quest!

Awkward introductions…

Hi there! You’ve managed to stumble onto my little blog. I suppose introductions are in order, I’m Thero (yes, that’s not my real name but most heroes have secret identities…) a lover of most geeky things, video games, comic books, you name it, I probably dabble in it. Hopefully over the course of this blogging adventure we’ll get to know each other, assuming someone is reading this and I’m not talking to myself, which to be honest is pretty much what I do anyways…

So what is this blog going to be about? To be honest, anything that springs to my bizarre mind, but most of it will have a bit of geeky slant to it (so basically anything that springs to mind, then!). I’m not making any promises as to how often I blog, but I’ll try at least once a week and see how I go.

Right, I think that’s enough intros and whatnots, I think it’s time to begin this journey; don’t worry, we won’t be heading of to some desolate land to destroy some piece of jewellery, unless that’s what floats your boat…
