Chocolate & Cream Cake

Today I’d like to introduce you to Mandy Anne Curtis, a fellow blogger, geek, designer, and all-around nice girl.

Mandy Ann Curtis

On her blog Chocolate & Cream Cake, Mandy describes herself as just “a small-town girl living in a nerdy world.” And every time I read that tagline, you better believe I sing it inside my head like Steve Perry.

I was introduced to Mandy via a mutual friend & TMNT fan on Twitter earlier this year who rightly guessed that we’d have a lot in common. I’ve been following Mandy’s blog ever since.

Here’s a sampling of some of the cool and geeky things you’ll find over there:

  • Nerd News— Gigantic round-ups of movie, comics, gaming & related news, fan art, and links from around the web.
  • Obsessed — One-shot reviews of the things Mandy’s currently obsessing over.
  • Fictional Fancies — A place to gush over the fictional characters we’re crushing on.
  • Lusting After— Like virtual window shopping for fashions, decor, collectibles and trendy stuff.
  • Geek of the Week— Introductions to other cool geeks.
  • Haiku Revieu— Movie reviews plus a haiku summary.
  • Renter’s Delight— Decorating ideas, projects and inspiration.
  • A Life More Pinteresting— Nifty Pinterest finds.

I enjoy Mandy’s blog because it’s like a cheerful, geeky, girly sanctuary away from the seedy, dark corners of the interwebz I usually frequent and the sausage party fest of man-children that is The League (not that that’s a bad thing; I love you guys!).

Mandy humored me today by posting my own contribution to her Fictional Fancies feature, in which I shamelessly reveal my lust for a character from Veronica Mars. I don’t usually do such outrageously girly things, but every now and then it’s been known to happen. Maybe someone spiked my Fruity Pebbles with estrogen this week.

Anyway, Mandy totally gets an internet high-five from me. Do check out Chocolate & Cream Cake and follow Mandy on Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest.
