These Are a Few of My Favorite Nerd Things

December 26, 2018


Seasons Greetings, fellow Nerds and Nerdophiles!

 Please sing along to the beloved Sound of Music tune, as I present my personal list of favorite

nerdilicious pastimes.

(Forgive me, Rodgers and Hammerstein…)




Brave Star Trek heroes and Holodeck villains,

Data the Android’s pet cat having kittens,

Spock’s Vulcan logic, and Q's mocking slings.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


Tennant as Doctor Who’s one quirky dude.

“Exterminate!” “Don’t Blink!” The squiggly-faced Ood.

Van Gogh and Amy; stone angels weeping.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


Science museums, art galleries of light,

All bundled up for a stargazing night,

Entropy, nebulae, planets with rings.

These are few of my favorite Nerd Things...



When the news bites,

When a slur stings,

When I’m feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite Nerd Things,

And then I don’t feel so bad!


Acting in local community theater,

Ballet and Improv and poetry with meter,

Classical music and puppets with strings.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


Fantasy, dramedy, middle-grade fiction,

Authentic characters; great plots that thicken,

Caspian princes and Narnian kings.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


NOVA and Nature and posh Downton Abbey,

Old Mister Grace; Mrs. Slocombe’s pet tabby,

Silly Walks. “I’m Free!” A Brit-Com’s dry zings.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things...



When Ross Poldark

Rides through Cornwall

Like a man gone mad,

His name makes the list of my favorite Nerd Things,

And then I don’t feel so bad.


Christmas in England, and fine Wedgwood china,

Performing carols and Handel’s Messiah,

Voices all joining, God’s praises to sing.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


Parrots and peacocks and birds of a feather,

Vast, lovely oceans in all kinds of weather,

Days at the library; the joy that it brings.

These are a few of my favorite Nerd Things.


Prophecy, history, Jeopardy, Wheel,

Feelers who think, and deep thinkers who feel,

Puzzles, and board games, and Jumbles galore.

Cuddling up with the man I adore...



When I’m lonely,

Bored or angry,

When I’m feeling sad,

A day with my hubby will turn me all bubbly,

Then, all that I feel is......Glaaaaaaaaaad!!! : )




Dear Readers,

Hug your friends close and your family closer this holiday season. Life and love are indescribably precious!


Have the merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of New Years. Happy 2019, Everyone!

            Welcome  to  the

     Kingdom  of  Nerdonia!

We are a community of nerds, geeks, academics, and intellectuals (both Christian and otherwise) who love to chat about the deeper things in life.  We also go a bit nutty over fantasy, sci-fi, British telly, the arts and sciences, classical music, reading and writing, Biblical theology, and anything else the rest of the world might consider nerdy.  We are a friendly and inclusive bunch.  However...

Any trolls or ogres entering our kingdom with the express purpose of bullying our villagers with their cruel comments will be given one chance to mend their ways before being thrown over the wall by the royal guards.  Grrrr...
