The Geekly with a Twist: November 9th-15th

Well, the “Suck” is officially under way. It’s week two of NaNoWriMo and I’m at 19k words…so no stalling today, either. Onward with the history!

November 9th, 1934: Carl Sagan is born in Brooklyn. If I need to explain anything about that last sentence, you might need to recheck your geek card.

November 9th, 1951: The original face of The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, is born in Brooklyn.

November 10th, 1960: THE Neil Gaiman is born in Portchester in England.

November 12th, 1982: The hilarious actress who is the most recent woman to don the catsuit for Batman films, Anne Hathaway is born in Brooklyn.

November 13th, 1957: Noted SciFi author Stephen Baxter is born in Liverpool, England.

November 14th, 1959: The Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, is born in Liverpool, England.

November 14th, 1981: The man behind George Sands (the werewolf in Being Human UK), Russell Tovey is born in Billericay in England.

Do you need more? How about

For your Twist this week, I feel like celebrating one of my favorite movies: Stardust…and guess who wrote the source novel? Yup, one Mr. Gaiman. So enjoy a Stardust cocktail in honor of his birthday!

  • 4 parts vodka
  • 1 part crème de cacao (white/clear)
  • Goldschläger

Mix the vodka and liqueur in a shaker over ice. Strain into a glass and slowly add the Goldschläger so the gold flakes float throughout the drink. Enjoy!

Okay, so, I was avoiding doing a Garnish this month, but I had to share this: I NEED this shirt.

So, back to the word count and (until next week) geek on!
