Geek Week

Have you ever felt like sometimes you just have so much to do that, to attempt to tackle everything would require a power far greater than human?  And so what do you do?  You keep letting things pile up right?  Finishing only the quickest and easiest things necessary to complete the day.  That's how life has been for the last three months, or so, I'd say.  Stacks of mail, piles of laundry, one unfinished book put down only to be replaced by its unfinished successor.  It's been exhausting, all of these additions to my "to-do" list.  Well, I've finally gotten around to finishing most of the stuff that had been weighing down the hind part of my brain, and I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say, that now it's just about time to start celebrating Geek Week.

Just so you know, when I refer to "Geek Week", I'm referring to nothing official, at least not on my side.  There is a website with that designated URL, and if you're looking for that you can find them HERE.  If they're what you were initially searching for, I apologize for wasting your time with the mundane details of my daily life, and send you on your way to exciting geekified pop culture news stories.  The Geek Week I'm referring to is simply the release of the two most exciting things of interest to me, which just happen to be happening in the same week:

George R.R. Martin's 5th installment of the A Song of Ice & Fire series titled "A Dance With Dragons"

and of course

The U.S. release of  Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Pt. 2

Also, if you're in the New Haven area, Criterion will be playing Jurassic Park (and let's face facts, if I don't qualify as a Spielberg geek, I'd like to meet the person who got my place at the convention).

So, there might be some additional posts for Geek Week, but if not, please forgive me; I'm just busy hip-checking 14-year olds for a better place in line, buying a second pair of 3-D Potter Glasses (I need one for my Hope Chest!) or calling and/or texting my dad and/or friends to say "DID YOU JUST READ THAT?!?!"  It's going to be exhausting (again) but in a far more entertaining way than paying your car taxes.

Hope everyone else is busy enjoying their week too (geek or not).  Anything your doing for your very own Geek Week?
