The Geek Girl's 110 Love Songs
I always thought it would be cool to be a radio DJ, a little bit of talking and playing music all day. Somewhere between my late childhood or early teens, I remember listening to the radio in the evenings and hearing Delilah. Does anybody else remember her? My local radio station must have quit airing her show, so I was surprised to learn that 1) she’s still around, and 2) she’s actually syndicated all throughout the country. If you don’t remember or don’t know Delilah, the radio personality, her show usually runs from 7pm to midnight. With romance as one of her themes throughout the night, she would take calls on air from listeners wanting to dedicate a song to a significant other.
The Geek Girl's Fifty Breakup Songs
Three or four years ago, a significant relationship I was in came to an end. Creating a themed playlist on Spotify, titled with the broken heart and skull-and-crossbones emojis, was one of my ways of coping with the loss and aftermath.
A Paid-Forward Breakfast
Monday, December 21nd 2020 "I forgot to put it in the calendar but I am off from today until January 4th. When you are in office, you need to make sure you do all the callbacks." It felt like just another day until I came by this short email from a cohort that followed a short conversation thread we had earlier where I asked for her second opinion on something I came across.
The Right Time for Home Alone
Note: This is commentary based on the first two Home Alone films. I’m a “purist” fan of this franchise. The first two are the only films to maintain the principal cast both in actors and characters. Plus, I don’t think the others quite match up with the central theme I just talked about; I mean, Home Alone 3 isn’t even set around Christmastime. That said, this discussion warrants a spoiler alert too if you aren’t familiar with the films.

The Geek Girl's Fifteen Favorite 'Dancing with the Stars' Moments
While reading up for my latest guide articles, it occurred to me that Dancing with the Stars celebrates fifteen years this year! With that in mind, I thought I’d rack my brain for my fifteen favorite moment from throughout its tenure so far! Maybe you remember some of these as well as I do…
The Geek Girl's Guide to 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 29 (Part 1)
First, I need to pick up where I left off... I have to admit...I felt disillusioned with last season. After James and Emma were eliminated in the semi-finals, I didn't even care to finish out the season's blogs. Albeit, that was bias getting in the way of my objective aim in writing those recaps.
Summer's End Songs
Summer is my favorite season, so the close of it is often bittersweet to me for some reason. Fall doesn’t start until mid-September, but August is practically an unofficial end to summertime when you think about it. Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and the Fourth of July are behind us. Camps, vacations, and other summer traditions might be too. Heck, we’re halfway through the year after June! Then come mid- to late July, back-to-school season kicks off with supplies on sale and classes starting. And, pre-pandemic, public pools closed after Labor Day anyways.
