Recommended pairing: Strawberry Hill wine

the waffle iron is a metaphor

you put the peeps on the killing thing, but you never give it the power to kill them

RIPeeps.

New video about the Central African Republic, the conflict there, and some thoughts on why we struggle to pay attention to complex international news stories. And Kony 2012.

Hey everyone! I (Valerie) would like to create a comprehensive dictionary of nerdfighter terms & language. This list will eventually be included on nerdfighteria.com as part of a sort of ‘orientation’ landing page for new, potential, or confused (because let’s face it, some of our jokes are WEIRD) nerdfighters.
From unique words like “swoodilypooper” and “dooblydoo”, to recurring phrases like “Who the eff is Hank?”, “Stuff on heads”, or “Movie magic!” every nerdfighter-centric term can and should be included!
I’ve created an editable, collaborative google doc that can be used to populate and flesh out the dictionary, which you can find here.
Let’s get this going!

Hank and John, avert thine eyes.  The rest of you, delve a little deeper. 
We need your help.

Fill out this form, so that we can do something with the information.
(it shouldn’t take long, and it should turn out really well)

And that’s it.

Seriously.

Secret secrets! If y’all wanna get involved in a cool thing (and aren’t John or Hank), click that link!

Calling All Nerdfighter Groups

Hey all! My name is Valerie, and in addition to being one of fynf’s showrunners, I have recently taken on the position of being a community liaison of sorts between Nerdfighteria and John & Hank.

My job is to make this community more awesome, more connected, more engaged, and more wonderful.

One of the ways all of the above can be achieved is by strengthening local nerdfighter groups and planning activities! FYNF has always tried to enable that through our Local Nerdfighter Groups page, but now it’s gonna be taken to the next level. 

If you are a part of a Nerdfighter group that has meetings (regularly or occasionally), please email me at valerie[at]nerdfighteria.com with  ”[your city/state/region] Nerdfighter Group” in the subject line. If your group already has a system of organization in place (looking at you, DC Nerdfighters!), please ask/get the attention of those who are admins/in charge and have them email me. I will be compiling emails and groups throughout the coming weeks to keep on hand for future projects.

Also, if you are a part of a local NF group that is not listed on our page, feel free to send me a link to it so it can be added.

Thanks & DFTBA!

-Valerie

What Boys Look For in Girls

We all want to be appreciated…but initial attraction isn’t really based in reality. There’s a really huge audience of very young women on YouTube, and I’m really worried about them basing their self-worth on whether they appeal to guys. That seems to be how the world is set up. I’m a dude, of course, so I’m basing this on what I’ve seen on YouTube and IRL, but I don’t think I’m crazy.

I should have said in the video…this isn’t meant to be relationship advice. There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they’re “looking for” doesn’t necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That “love at first sight” moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

Spring is in the air (in some parts of the world…), and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for Accio Books!Over the years, our annual book drive has built libraries in Rwanda, the Mississippi Delta, and New York City. Members like you have collectively donated over 100,000 books. This year, we are thrilled to announce that our primary donation recipient will be the Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit, Michigan. All of the books collected during the drive will be catalogued by our University of Michigan chapter, The Whomping Wolverines, and in September they will be given away for free to members of the Brightmoor community during an appearance of our Apparating Library at Brightmoor’s annual Back To School Rally.You also have the option to donate locally or join up with your local chapter to see where they’re donating this year. No matter how or where you donate books, be sure to log them for points in our annual House Cup.

Will Ravenclaw win again? Will we beat our record of 30,000 book donations from last year? Will Tom Hiddleston hear about our campaign and personally donate one thousand books? 
THE GAME, DEAR WIZARDS, IS ON!



Hey nerds! Have some books lying around that could use a better home? Want to get together with other nerdfighters and make a positive impact on your community? Wanna be real cool?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, why not collect books to donate either locally or to the HPA’s Apparating Library in Detroit?
More info will be coming shortly on how nerdfighters can join magical forces with the HPA for good during this drive, but for now, get talking in your local nerdfighter groups and brainstorm up some ways that you can work together to collect books to donate, either as a collective, or as part of an HPA chapter, if there’s one near you.
Hooray!
