About Me

My photo
If you like short, fiery, red haired East Londoners who now reside in Norwich that have a penchant for video games, board games and filmmaking then you've come to the right place, my friend. I write a fortnightly column about video games for Forces of Geek and I write, direct, edit and film with Cheesemint Productions, my production company. You can search for us on YouTube, you know how the Internet works, right? This blog, Excuse Me While I Geek Out is a place to collect my column pieces for Forces Of Geek and anything I've written for other websites and publications as well as being a place to write about all things geek. My other blog, For All Or None is a cathartic activity dedicated to my mental health and I write openly and honestly about deeply personal psychological issues that effect me. It's an mental outlet so doesn't necessarily require readers especially as it will no doubt be full of grammatical errors, nonsense and spelling mistakes.

She appears composed, so she is, I suppose

Hi there,

Welcome to this unorganised collection of my writings, thoughts, creative notes and ramblings. It may not be coherent and at times may be a little hard to follow. Such is the nature of language and I'm not writing for anyone else, just myself, in an attempt to organise my thoughts and to aid me with my creative work but please feel free to peruse and comment if you wish to do so.

Geek Inspired Jewellery...

Inspired by Geek With Curves recent blog post...

Here's some geeky jewellery I own...

Not quite the bat signal but pretty cool nonetheless, found these on eBay for dirt cheap, like £3.99...I'm quite the lover of acrylic/perspex jewellery

Yum yum...one of favourite pieces EVER. My mum picked it up for me at an arts and crafts fair!

And Dolly Mixture earrings from a great shop in Norwich that is no longer around - I miss you Kettle of Fish!

Big Left 4 Dead fan...so I almost pee'd my pants when I came across Deadly Pretty Designs Video Game Geekery by Candeta on Etsy. My very own Hunter!

Umbrella Corp. Earrings also from Candeta...

POW! This is THE most awesome necklace for any comic fangirl! From an indie seller on eBay - RTK.

My beloved Pylones Ring...They have a wide range of jewellery, but these liquid filled beauties are, in my opinon, their best! If I could own them in every colour...I would!

My Robot...he's broken but still adore him. He used to carry a little heart, but I lost it. Sad robot :(

I've got my eye on a few SHINY objects too:

PIPBOY!!! This is what payday will bring me! From a seller called AzureeAlice on Etsy. Her shop is HERE

From Truffle Shuffle

And I need me a Browncoat Ring for sure!

Unlocked the Series (S1 Ep3) - Coastal Highway

Unlocked the Series (S1 Ep2) - Delicious Brains

Unlocked the Series (S1 Ep1) - Strength in Numbers


So, um...haven't updated for a while. I have no excuse...I'm just lame. However, I could blame Fallout New Vegas.

Anyhoooo...much has happened since January. The web series was launched. We had a premiere at Fusion at the Forum (Norwich). We're up to episode three of Unlocked so I should probably post them on here.
