High Heels Hurt

When I was six years old, I remember walking into my Mother's bedroom closet and seeing this gargantuan array of high heel shoes that came in a variety of colors and styles.  She had everything from pink strappy heels, to clear plastic pumps, to blue sequin stilettos.  It looked like the inside of a dressing...

Allow Me To Introduce Myself: My name is Jamie and I’m A Black Girl Nerd

My name is Jamie and I'm a Black Girl Nerd.  I have been black and nerdy my whole life.  Well I've been black longer, but you get my drift.  I've finally released that repressed part of my soul that I'vetried to hide through social masks and distorted worldly perspectives about what being a black girl is all...

My Addiction To Social Networks

I am a social networking geek.  I remember when I created my first MySpace page back in 2004.  Wow that was ages ago!  Anywayz, I pimped out my page with everything from a catchy song when the page loads to a cute web design of my page.  Honestly---its kind of how I learned web-design/HTML...

Weird Celebrity Crushes

Time to go ultra-nerdy on this one!  Have you ever had a crush on a celebrity who is completely NOT your typical Hollywood stud-muffin?  The ones who you would never or rarely see on the covers of GQ Magazine or Esquire?  Am I the only one here who's had a bizarre crush on a...

An Ode to Cheese (2/5)…

My homage continues. Frankenfish is based off a real event and also hints at consumer consumption of genetically-engineered salmon.  Science and reality shoved aside (and I do mean shoved), this movie is a treat that can be found on YouTube; which saves a queue-space on Netflix.  The quality is good and the movie even...

Geeks and Nerds: There’s A Difference

 The terms "geek" and "nerd" are used interchangeably.  I myself have even used them as one and the same on this very blogsite.  However, I recently found out that apparently there is a difference between a GEEK and a NERD.  Would you like for me to elaborate? A Nerd is someone who is socially inept and...

Talking White/Acting Black

  I'm about to go there.  Yes, I know this is another taboo subject, but let's keep it real okay?  I've been told by friends and family for many years that I sound like a "white girl".  When I was young I wasn't quite certain that I knew exactly what that meant.  I just knew...

The Kind of Nerd I Like

I’m of the belief that nerds are attracted to other nerds.  And nerds come in all, shapes, sizes and colors.  Some even come incognito, but you don’t know this when you meet them.  I love men and I’m attracted to all kinds.  I don’t discriminate.  Beauty is what it is, and lies where it’s...

Growing Up Nerdy

I’m a nerd.  If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably like, “Duh?!”  I’ve been a nerd my whole life, and as a grown woman, I really appreciate it now.  So let’s do a checklist:   Amaya.  AKA "Pink"   1.     1. Glasses:  Check.  Since age eight; new ones every two to three years.  I still wear them;...
