GothamGal is a devoted comic fan. Reading comics from an early age (TinTin, Archie, Katie Keene and much more), she has recently revisited her old interest and is branching out into the streets of unread comics and graphic novels! While she favors DC Comics, Marvel is slowly winning her over—but Vertigo, Image and IDW have so many new things to offer, she might just say she’s a comic fan—with no labels.

It’s Monday, What are You Reading?

Each Monday, The Book Date asks what we’re reading via It’s Monday, What are You Reading?… Please visit the site to link up your current list and hold yourself accountable. Also, you can visit some great blogs who are also doing this meme… It’s pretty awesome. The good news is that I surpassed my goal for the week–I ended up at 164 books read.

Confession: I’m pretty stuck in my music choices. I don’t listen to a lot of new music much, unless it’s on the limited time I have during my daily commute–which doesn’t always happen.

Dysentery, Or How I learned to love the Oregon Trail Card Game

Growing up, our computers were representative of the time (read: mid 80s to early 90s). Our computer games were also representative of that time. We had lemonade stand and we had Oregon Trail. Lemonade Stand was a math game where you sold lemonade. Oregon Trail was a game where you went on the historic Oregon Trail in the same time period as the epic migration.

Winning the Holiday Potluck with the Pioneer Woman

It’s the time of the year when you can be sure of one thing–working in a corporate environment means potluck meals! Since I’m a huge fan of something easy, I sometimes look to my favorite chefs and cookbooks to assist in this trying time–I was able to take a dish I’d read about (and fell in love with at home) on the Pioneer Woman’s website and make it potluck friendly.
