The week of Christmas, my nieces needed to do a bit of last minute shopping, so I decided it was a good time to check out some local businesses we could support, as well as giving you all a new place to check out if you’re in the area.
So, we went to The Factory in Farmington, Missouri to check out Aesop’s Treasury.
During Planet Comicon 2021 in August, we decided to venture out for some dinner and see a little of Kansas City while we were there. And of course we chose one of our favorite things to get: Chinese food.
Originally, 2020 was a packed full year of adventure that I was so ecstatic for. Then, the unexpected happened, and I spent that year mostly making comic review related content here on WanderingNerdGirl since wandering was pretty much off the table.

If you’ve been around a bit, you know my love for Rocky Horror Picture Show. I’ve done posts about the Rocky Horror Picture Show Festival as well as Rocky Horror Picture Show at Mineral Area College. I’m even an official member of the Fan Club.
So, of course I jumped at the opportunity to see the Flustered Mustard shadow cast at the Melba for a Midnight showing of RHPS.
