The Sith Named Ted

Friends are lovely things to have. When you’re stuck, they help you get unstuck and bring you Hawaiian pizza and root beer, and sometimes fancy rum. They swear like sailors and love little Dinosaurs. They have fabulous book suggestions and speak in movie quotes. And sometimes they come up with funny nerdy limericks on the spot when you’re discussing making up nerdsery rhymes.

I’ve always been confused by friends. My social anxiety sometimes gets in the way of making strong connections with people. But here’s what I’ve learned about friendship in my thirty-one years of life; of these things I am certain:

Friends feel like home. The right people meeting at the right time is kismet and the reward is a comforting hug. They become an extension of yourself, much like a significant other or spouse, but in a non-romantic teddy bear sort of way.

Friends don’t care if you are a covered in spit-up, frumpy, messy-bed-head, dirty pajamas, sitting-on-your-floor-drinking-cold-tea lazy bum. In fact, friends will insist that you are far from being a lazy bum and instead are a frakin’ superhero who deserves a medal because they believe in your awesomeness.

Friends show up when life goes sour, whether it be in a text or letter from miles away or by showing up at your door. They bring surprise sparkling wine and silly conversations when you need them the most. They tackle you with love because they know it will distract you from the worries that press on your heart.

Friends choose you, for whatever reason, and you become each other’s Pokémon. Together you will be the very best, like no one ever was. It doesn’t matter that you’re a psychic type and they are a fire type. Even though you’re different, you’re complimentary. Your combo attack is epic.

Friends are supportive, crazy, miraculous, and stronger than The Rock in a funny, feel-good family movie. Seriously, I don’t know how they do it, but friends are magic. And I’m here; ready on the sidelines with cookies and hugs, tea and whiskey, games and books, and tissues with the lotion (just in case) whenever you need me.

Say Rawr!

Geekasaurus is a silly little comic about a geeky family. Specifically, my geeky family, and all the antics and hijinks of my daughter. You’ll read along as we go on adventure after adventure, documenting the unexpected chuckles (and sometimes hard truths) along the way. As my husband and I learn to navigate being new parents, I’ll be sharing the hilarity, one comic at a time.

Roll ‘Em Up

Introducing the Spiffy New Geek-A-Blog!

Oh, bother! I've gone and created a blog space. Silly Kali ... Ultimately, what this means is that there is going to be a LOT more geekeriffic content for you to squee about. Assuming that you squee, that is. I know I do! I hope to fill this blog...

Alice’s Adventures with Heart Surgery

We’ve just gotten home from spending the past week in Boston as our daughter, Alice, had an Atrial Septal Defect repaired. She had full blown open heart surgery and woke up like it was nothing. If any of us had our chests cracked open we’d be out...

We're taking this week off in Boston as our daughter has open heart surgery. Geekasaurus will resume next week. Have a happy New Year!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Yulemas

Holidays have been pretty easy over the past four years. We've kept things quiet at home, gone to a few parties thrown by family and friends, but we haven't gone out of our way to really get into the spirit of things. A dash of holiday music here...

Holiday Prep

It's almost that time of year again. Lights flicker. Snow falls. Familiar music pipes in, surrounding us all and enveloping us in a warm hug as if to say, "You're home now." The woosh of the engines lulls us into comfort ...  I am, of course,...

Comic Still Baking

  I knew that it was bound to happen sooner or later. The comic is late and will probably not be posted until tomorrow (Thursday). 🙁  Alice has been going through an "I only want Mum" phase, a "say no to naps" phase, and an "I want to be held all...

Gobble, Gobble!

It's a holiday, and I'm probably super busy rushing around being fussy about food and getting frustrated by the state of my kitchen while Wayne taps away on his laptop and Alice jumps up and down in her bouncy thing. It's pretty much guaranteed...
