I’m sitting here tonight thinking “what to do, what to do?”
My husband however is laughing so hard he has tears rolling down his face.
Apparently, he is now obsessed with watching YouTube on xbox.
For 3 days now, he has been watching Rage Quit videos from Rooster Teeth, or something like that!
Yes, my husband is a geek- just an xbox geek!
Listening to him laugh is enough entertainment.
In fact, its a little too much entertainment… I cannot concentrate while he is laughing like that. It is too funny.
So instead of working tonight, It looks like I will be listening to the hubs laugh at Rage Quit videos….
AND EMPTYING MY INBOX!
Yes, My name is Cari and I have an exploding inbox!
I belong to several groups and have family all over the country, so this makes my inbox crazy!
Its Christmas, so that makes it insane!
I’m addicted to reading blogs, so that explodes it!
My goal by tomorrow is to have an empty inbox… I’m not sure how that is going to happen.
I promise to share my tips with you, as well as a special gift for your support!
Until then, here is a giftie for you!
You can use it as a facebook picture, blog bling, blog post image, email signature, whatever you want.
If you would like this customized, leave a comment with your name, and I will whip you one up!

Since I have failed to actually catch-up, I am doing 2 posts in 1
Life happens… what do you do?
Lego Christmas: A Geek’s Winter Wonderland
At a London Train Station , a 33 foot Christmas Tree has been built.
Out of LEGOS!
It is probably the largest Lego Christmas Tree ever built, and took over 2 months to complete!
Talk about spreading the Christmas Cheer.
Here are more views:
I do believe I am going to try my hand at making Christmas goodies out of Legos!
Maybe a wreath, some ornaments, or a Christmas town.
Be a Friend to a Geek
White October and Hutchhouse has brought a very important cause to my attention!
Not all geeks have friends!
How can this be?
Its just not fair!
So, do your part and to here to pledge to make a difference.
(seriously though, take the time to share a moment with someone who is lonely)
everyone deserves to spend Christmas with somebody. Reach out and show you care!
On to the
well, actually… 2 blogs of the day today!
The first blog that I would like to recognize is Kludgy Mom
I really enjoy this blog.
Truly, a blogger after my own heart!
She blogs about geekiness, mom stuff, wifey stuff, social media….
all of my favorite things.
I look forward to the newsletter popping into my inbox
(in case you can’t tell by now, I am a total blog addict)
So, just hop on over to Kludgy Mom and see the great stuff she has to offer!
Let her know I sent you!
In the words of Jason and Grant,
On to the next!
Trashy Betty is one of my favorite blogs!
She blogs about her artwork, her kids, her life in general, and all things she loves, including other artists.
Her Etsy shop is absolutely amazing!
If I didn’t have a 1 year old running around, I would have everything she makes.
For now, I think I’ll just look at it, and order a skull headband or FTW mirror!
She even does hair and makeup for a Pinup photographer!
Talk about multi-talented!
Enjoy my finds and favorite blogs
