We’re back! This week the Ravellenic Games are in full swing, though sadly one of us didn’t make it past the qualifier. That just means there’s more projects to talk about, though!
There’s also a lot of geek squee, especially about the latest Mars Rover landing as well as a real-world version of a certain robot that hits Karen’s squeal button pretty hard. There’s also a kickstarter campaign for a documentary that might appeal to the space nerds amongst us, as well as some Avengers movie casting news. Also, apparently a billionaire has been toying with the idea fo cloning dinosaurs. We all know how this movie ends.
Finally there’s some gorgeous yarn and fibre to share, as well as an upcoming figure of a certain SHIELD agent that’s making Karen squeal. Not that that’s difficult to do.
