My boyfriend is a gamer. Video games, board games, card games, he’s all over it. We spend Saturday nights playing board and card games, and we spend Sunday afternoons on the couch: me doing homework for grad school, and him fighting virtual zombies or things in space or playing a young Lara Croft on his PS4.
He recently subscribed to Loot Crate, a monthly subscription box filled with geek and gamer gear. For funsies, him and I filmed a unboxing video to reveal all the goodies we received. Watch us ooh and ahh over stuff and eat taffy:
Loot Crates are $13.37 + $6 in shipping ($19.37 total). If you’re thinking about subscribing, please consider using our referral link!
Sandy’s brought us a hurrication, and I’m taking this opportunity to put together an unsolicited Frankenstorm playlist. You’re welcome.
#5: “Hello Hurricane” by Switchfoot
Upbeat and optimistic: the perfect feel-good hurricane song, if there ever was one.
#4: “Hurricane Drunk” by Florence + The Machine
However, if Sandy’s got you down, this song might be more your speed.
#3: “Rains It Pours” by The Dirty Heads
This is the song to listen to as you sit in your dark, power-less living room watching the storm rage outside with some leftover Octoberfest in hand.
#2: “I Will Survive” covered by Cake
I may be biased because I love me some Cake, but this is the best cover of “I Will Survive” ever. (Of course, I don’t blame you if you need to listen to the original for some good booty-shaking beats.)
#1: “Sandy” by John Travolta from Grease
Stay safe, everyone!
I’ve been taking hip-hop dance classes at Joy of Motion Dance Center, and their Marketing and PR Manager, Cecile (@dance_DC), asked if I would contribute a blog post to JOMDC’s blog. Why not? Click here to read a slightly embarrassing post about my dance dreams and experience at JOMDC.
Also, if you’re into dance and you’re in the metro D.C. area, check out Cecile’s blog for information about upcoming dance events and other news!
I know I haven’t been posting (bad, bad Megan!) but yeah. This happened a couple of weeks ago to celebrate my birthday:
It was such a rush, and not as scary as I thought it would be. I highly recommend it! (Tip: definitely opt for photography/videography packages; they’re totally worth it.) Thank you to my tandem partner Kevin for keeping me alive, and the team at Skydive Orange for putting me at ease!
1. With Curby Bucket, Philadelphia’s recycling mascot, outside Citizens Bank Park. That guy’s hilarious.
2. Browsing comic books, graphic novels and nerdy things at Brave New Worlds.
3. Celebrating National Record Store Day at a.k.a. music. (I purchased a Kathleen Battle/Jessye Norman CD.)
4. Yummy sushi at Jasmine Asian House in Collegeville.
Good times. Until next time, Philly!
…kind of! My blog post about my work’s #creativemoco tweetup at the Fillmore Silver Spring went live on Wednesday on Americans for the Arts’ ARTSblog, which was super cool. Many thanks again to Tim for allowing me to share this story!
