Said I would.
So, my husband and I took off to the Ottawa Geek Market on Saturday.
This is a substantial piece of escapism afforded to me at very rare intervals.
I have a universe of geek within which to escape the networking, social media, researching health advocacy chaos of my reality as an autoimmune-afflicted WAH-mom to five…and this past weekend…the Ottawa Geek Market obliged.
We hadn’t even gotten in the entrance doors before hugs and hello-ing with our lovable Geeky Godmother, who was live-tweeting during the event. Not even in past two displays before seeing a buddy of ours…then I saw a woman I’ve recently made a dear connection with during a now-regular “date with the gals for coffee”…then I saw several friends I haven’t seen for EONS…
And that’s how it was. The whole afternoon. Go, Go SpazzyAss here purposely putting myself in the line of fire of over-stimulation (colours, sounds & lights).
Events like these afford me the opportunity, as well, to reconnect with people I don’t usually have the chance to see. Period.
PLUS: Geekdom. Of all kinds. Everywhere. Scored a memory card for my son for his Gamecube we’d gotten him last fall for his 18th “Retro” birthday. 😀
Wanna know what the “Colour!!” and “Happy!!” was that I got for myself???
That’s right…a unicorn shittin’ a rainbow, y’all.
Turns this frown upside down.
Know what else I got for myself?
Now I can pretend I’m sinking a mutha’ freakin’ colossal ship…and be freakin’ happy about it whilst wearing my Socks of Incredible Happy.
What’s your favourite geek genre?? Can you pick just one?
My sweet, somewhat sad, irony is…
I am an impossible girl who waits for a Doctor. 😉
