Hello my sweeties!

How was your week? Ours was pretty good, finished up some last minute Christmas shopping and bought our tickets for The Force Awakens next Monday. This weekend will involve co-hosting the Geek Girl Brunch Montreal Star Wars Brunch, but I won’t be attending the film with everyone else since Rick would straight up divorce me if I saw it for the first time without him. #jokingnotjoking

I seriously can’t believe how quickly this month is zipping by. In less than a week I’ll be in Vancouver with my family and then next thing you know it’ll be 2016. It’s been a weird year for me, to be sure, but I do feel like I’m finishing it on a high note. My piece on game jams for Remeshed was just featured on Gamasutra by Critical Distance and I’m beyond honoured.

Link Time!
What do you think? Did Star Wars take inspiration from an obscure French Sci-Fi comic?

What indie games are you looking forward to in 2016?

She’s conquered the sprinkle world, now The Geeky Hostess is introducing geeky teas!

Great essay about the importance of diversity in our media.

I’m in love with this idea. How to have a blanket fort staycation.

Number 277 in the list of awesome things video games can do: train surgeons.

Cat head smell in a bottle!!!

We all know that comic artists take liberties with the female form, but c’mon now!

Excellent self-care tips for geeks from Jamila of Girl Gone Geek.

And finally, a reminder that not all games have a pause function.

      Luckily I seem to be catching up with my deluge of pre-Christmas work. But yeah, I still kinda can’t believe it’s nearly 2016.

    It’s kind of crazy how soon Christmas will be here. I’m also waiting on seeing Star Wars due to possible divorce threats if I go sooner haha.
