Gettin' My Geek Card

Monday, October 29, 2012

I mentioned this on Facebook several weeks ago, but the other day I realized I'd somehow neglected to post about it here on the actual blog. WHOOPS. (I'm claiming temporary insanity/amnesia.)

So without further ado, allow me to present what is possibly the greatest honor I've ever been given:



 MY OWN TRADING CARD.

Yep, my friend Len Peralta (the same artist who turned me into Mr. StayPuft for my birthday) added me to his prestigious Geek-a-Week project, which includes such geeky greats as Adam Savage, Wil Wheaton, Cory Doctorow, Felicia Day, and - in the same set as me - Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess.

Like I said, this is a staggering honor, and one which I actually attempted to refuse, because I am apparently a blithering idiot. ;) Fortunately Len persisted, though, and now - did I mention? - I HAVE MY OWN TRADING CARD. Plus Storm (of Paul & Storm) wrote this killer back for it:



So, for those of you missed this the first time, you can go here to listen to my interview with Len - but even better, you can browse through the dozens of other geeks he's interviewed, too, and listen to their podcasts. Everyone gets asked the same questions, and it's fascinating to hear the different personalities coming out in their answers.

Oh, and if you act really fast, you can still pre-order the set of cards I'm in for $12 here on Len's Kickstarter page. It ends tomorrow, though, so like I said: act fast if you want one! (The Kickstarter has ended, so just watch Len's store at the link below!)

And if you miss the pre-order, head over to Len's site for art prints and more Geek-a-Week card packs!

  4. well, i would LOVE to get that set on kickstarter. i've read it includes neil gaiman too. but, alas, i don't own a credit card and that is the only payment option amazon.com would accept from me. and amazon payments is the only thing that kickstarter offers.

    i'd LOVE to be able to pay with paypal. or a money order. or pay-at-delivery. or anything else that does NOT require a credit card.

    so, no fancy collection cards of jen yates and neil gaiman for me. this really sucks.

    congratulations on being recognized as the awesome person you are, though! you totally deserved the honor!

  5. Ok, for you and Jenny Lawson, I am now on kickstarter!

    Also - if you and John could send steampunk awesome vibes my way, I'm going to work as a steampunk pirate queen for my office halloween costume contest (prize is a paid day off!)
    I am not sure how this is going to go over and positive thoughts for letting the geek flag fly would be much appreciated ( I need john's mojo for the last minute sewing I need to get done tonight!)

  15. Jen, I have to say that your card is one of the cutest ones of ALL the Geek a Week cards! (Even over the one of someone I know in real life!) Congrats!

  16. I supposed this when I saw it start. Then I lost my job and was freaking out about having the money for the set if it made it(like there would be any doubt about it.) But! I got a new job just in time and I can't wait for my autographed cards to get here.
