Just about anyway! On March 30th, 2010, I posted our very first post Fangirls Don’t Wear Pink and got this whole whirlwind of the last year of my life started.
It has been an incredible year. Through this blog, we have met so many wonderful people, fabulous geeky women and men, and really explored, I think, the breadth of geekdom from a number of different angles. From a numerical standpoint, in a year we went from nothing to averaging 150 hits and 100 unique visitors a day. We have over 1500 of you following my rants and links on twitter. We have published 280 posts and 14 original Venn Diagrams. Whew!

I found this originally on Geeks Are Sexy and thought that it was the perfect intersection of movie geeks, logic geeks, and math geeks. Since I’m most of the above (my husband is a bigger movie geek than me, but that means I still watch a lot of movies with him), I definitely enjoyed these and I thought you would too!
Here’s the original on Spiked Math. Oh, and there are two more:
So, can you get them? The only issue here is that I couldn’t find an actual answer key, but if you pop into the comments, there are plenty of great options!
Got any other ideas? I was trying to come up with something for Walk the Line, like a function from x+1 to infinity for the equation ax+c = y (like stepping up a line, get it!). Anyway. Lots of math, logic, and movie fun!

1. Turn off all notifications for social networks/emails
Every time my husband gets an email, his phone buzzes. I think I would go crazy. So, I turned everything off. If I want to know if the mails are new, I have to pull the phone out, enter the app, and look. In some cases, I force myself to refresh. What I like about this is that it is such a process that I put off my social network checking until I have a clump of time and do them all at once. This has proven to actually keep me more focused in general because I no longer leave these open on my computer where I can see all the updates and jump on them immediately, removing myself from my current task.

Today from Etsy we have something interesting, jewelry made from old typewriter keys! I’m amazed at the strange things that you can find on vintage typewriter keys. Add in some steampunk elements or owls or whatever else you like, and you have a whole lot of awesome in the form of earrings or necklaces! Check it out!
What do you make?
I make stuff to wear around necks, on fingers, in cleavages…in fact anywhere you’d like to embellish! More

PAX East was this past weekend, and I already want to go to the next one! Anyway, I’m going to sum up my trip the best way I know how: in a Top Ten list. Yeah, I like those.

So, Dawn and I ran around PAX East for three days and had a blast. However, we were so busy that we didn’t take any pictures! Fortunately, lots of other people did, so here is a smattering of what we saw and did through the joys of Flickr!
Thanks CasualCapture for the great logo! Come on into the post to see the rest!
