Maybe I’ll Write About Doctor Who…Because You Know There’s Not Enough of it on the Internet or Anything…

I may or may not have the urge to name my first born child Stormageddon.

For those of you who don’t know, I recently immersed myself in the complete and utter nerd-dom of Doctor Who. And once I dive into something that major, I obsess. Seriously. Fucking. Obsess. So obviously, I watched the entire modern series in a matter of 2 months. Did I mention that I obsess?

Like when I saw this shirt. I needed this shirt. So I bought this shirt. I can’t wait to nerd out in it at a con or two.

Keep Calm and Don't Blink

I may have pulled this shirt out of the dirty laundry last night just to take a photo shoot…and don’t mind my messy hair. was at the bottom of the laundry. But I felt inspired to put it on for you guys.

Seriously…it was at the bottom of the laundry. But I felt inspired to put it on for you guys.

So yesterday, I’m not sure if you heard this or not, but Chicago kind of drowned a little bit. Flash floods across the suburbs. Roads blocked. Commutes delayed. Cars destroyed. Scary terrifying thunderstorms. Power outages. A boat load of not good. An ARK, if you will…

Belmont Train Underpass Underwater

This train station is like 7 minutes from where I live.

Needless to say, I DID NOT leave my apartment yesterday.

How does this all relate?

My girlfriend in Arizona Facebooked, “What the hell is going on in Illinois?!” And I replied with “Stormageddon.”

And then I remembered the episode of Doctor Who in which I told Brian that our first born child would be named Stormageddon. And then I Googled it for some fun things for you.

You’re quite welcome.

I sent this to Brian…and told him that our future child would totally own this. And by own it I mean wear the shit out of it. He refused to comment.


If you want more Stormy Baby Pictures and Doctor Who Joy…It’s possible that I could spend hours on this Doctor Who Tumblr

Happy Friday Everyone! Have you ever braved a terrifying storm? Snow Storms or Flooding Rain Storms? Tornadoes? I’m petrified of them, but I do love a good story…



Hey! Did you know you can buy my book on Amazon? 37 women wrote about the struggle for perfection, and I'm one of 'em. Go check it out!

  1. I live in Florida where hurricanes are all the rage. I’ve been in a few. None where blow your house down bad. They just mean you go without power for a week or so. In Florida heat that can be miserable though.

  2. Not too many severe storms in So. California. ‘course we got riots, earthquakes, forest fires, and LA traffic. I can remember having to sandbag my garage townhouse a time or two to keep the damn thing from flooding. I’ve also bought a stungun which are legal in California to carry to deal with the crazies. So don’t get my Irish up. I’m a bad motherf**ker 😉

    • Hahahahaha! Wayne, you can TOTALLY swear on my blog. 🙂

      • I’ve actually fantasized about moving to The Keys. After listening to old Jimmy Buffett CD’s it sounded pretty cool 🙂 But then I went to the local mountains and went to a presentation/demonstration on lightning. Apparently Florida has more lightning strikes than any other states. I think I want to go someplace where nothing much happens like Idaho or Montana.

        • I fantasize about moving to Disney World, but apparently, that’s illegal according to Disney Law.

          • I just had a friend who drove down to Disney World from N. Carolina. It’s a great place if you like the U.N. He went nuts trying to help another friend that lost things everyplace he went.
            If you move there you could get a job as a disney character trying to be nice to the hordes of kid who will bug you about everything 😉

          • LOL. Nah, I might accidentally say, “Fuck!” a lot.

  3. I’m a total obsessor too. It’s quite fun actually. 🙂

    Do you go to a lot of cons in Chicago? Our really good friends, Matt and Kelly Strait, are big Chicago con-goers. We went that way for Duckcon once (we’re in Minnesota though so we stick to our local cons mostly, Minicon, MarsCon, CONvergence…)

    • I went to my first real con last year (we did Gen Con in Indy). Then I did the Chi Toy and Game Fair…and this year I’ve got BlogHer, Gen Con, ChiTag and MAAAYBE Wizard Con.

  4. OMG whelcome to the club. I’m a huge fan of the Doctor. But honestly, I never warmed up to Matt Smith. I’m a David Tennant fan all the way. 10th Doctor FTW!!! Did I mention that my iPhone case is a TARDIS? No joke.

  5. I’m a fan, too. What do you think of Clara? And the theories about Clara?

  6. Good lord, I’m a moron. I’ve been reading your blog for weeks now and JUST realized I KNOW YOU! *sigh* Clearly I don’t look very closely at your pictures. (And you’re probably like, duh, I’ve known you were the girl I knew in high school this whole time, but in my defense there are far more Chrissys in the world than Charleens.)

    • Bwahahahahaha! That. Is. Awesome. I don’t blame you one bit. I DEFINITELY look different than I did back in high school. I’ve run into people who don’t recognize me at all ever.

      And actually I thought it was really cool that I saw you on Katie’s blog and then you came to my blog. (Not like I was stalking or anything…just you know…noticed) I was like, WOAH. I know her! I love how the world works like that.

      Total side note: I’m not going to lie, I considered writing about that one time I was a horrible chemistry lab partner and spilled acid on the table…I STILL feel like an asshole for being that ditzy. Can I apologize again for that even though its like 15 years later?

  7. I am so glad you didn’t flood. That train station is unbelievable. I really think you need an arc or a rowboat. Your going to need space for all of your sloths so think BIG.

  1. […] I get to introduce you to one of my favorite creative minds: Quirky Chrissy. She’s witty and smart and full of enthusiasm and life. She consistently makes me laugh with […]

  2. […] If you ran in circles where it was not only acceptable but expected to give your child a ridiculous name, what would you name your child? I just read an article about how a lot of people named their child, “Cheese” this year. I wouldn’t do that. Although, every time I called for Cheese, maybe someone would bring me cheese…so that could work out in my favor…so maybe Cheese. But probably not. I’ll stick with my go-to name: Stormageddon. […]
