After a few months of health related chaos, I am back and happy that my first adventure of the year is Planet Comicon 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri.Continue reading
Finding Balance: Travel with Chronic Illness
I don’t like to go into detail here very often when it comes to my health. You’re here for cool adventures and nerdy goodness, not to read about the fact that my body is broken. Aside from the unavoidable mention of it in my post about meeting Kevin Smith for the first time, I don’t think I really talk about it all that much here.
But I think it’s time I take a minute to explain my chronic illnesses and how my mortality brought about Wandering NerdGirl.Continue reading
Clerks III – The Convenience Tour – St. Louis
Back in May, when I had a very Clerks weekend at Fan Expo, Kevin told me he’d bring The Convenience Tour to St. Louis and insisted I come to the show.
The Convenience Tour was announced for St. Louis, and of course, I not only got front row seats for Clerks III and the Kevin Q&A, but also a VIP pass.
It was one of the best nights of my life.Continue reading
First House for Halloween Horror Nights 32
Halloween Horror Nights blessed us on Halloween with an incredibly early first house announcement for HHN 32:
Finally, after wanting to go for SO LONG – I have been to Creepyworld in Fenton, Missouri.
It’s no secret that I’ve been longing for more haunts since getting back from Halloween Horror Nights this year, and Six Flags Fright Fest just wasn’t enough to get me through. So, the boyfriend and I made some plans with two friends and went to Creepyworld the Friday before Halloween.
No better time to soak up the spooky serotonin, ya know?Continue reading
Unmasking the Horror: Halloween
This was my most anticipated house this year, and still ranked pretty high for me afterwards, but I was delighted that for our three house Unmasking the Horror Tour, we had Halloween as one of the three houses we would get to see with the lights on and enjoy all the extra details that we may have missed as we ran through during the event.Continue reading
Hadestown at the Fabulous Fox
For the last two and a half-ish years, my nieces and I have lovingly listened to the Hadestown soundtrack (in particular, they know every word to both versions of Wait For Me), and dreamed of the day we could somehow go see it. Initially, I intended to take them to a leg of the tour in Tennessee in 2020, but then, well… 2020 happened.
But little did the girls know, I was entirely motivated to get them to the show somehow – and the moment it was announced for the Fox in St. Louis, I waited patiently to purchase tickets.Continue reading
Sakaya: Authentic Japanese Food in Farmington, MO
My best friend tried Sakaya in Farmington, Missouri before I even realized it existed. She IMMEDIATELY messaged me, raving about how incredible the food was, and insisting we go together sometime.Continue reading
Halloween Horror Nights 31
It had been six years since I’d been to my beloved Halloween Horror Nights. Six. Long. Years. I spent my time living through every photo and video I could find of the last few years events.
But finally, this year, I made it back. A week of Universal’s parks, two nights of Horror Nights, and one Unmasking the Horror Tour later, and I’m already eagerly awaiting announcements about next year’s event.Continue reading
