A Thing Only A Nerd Would Say

And Now For Something Completely Different

I really like being pregnant. I’m in awe of the process and the science. And seeing my belly move is pretty amazing; it’s like in the movie Alien. — Emily Deschanel, star of Bones.

I may think that Bones is one of the most predictable and sappy of the crime scene dramas out there, but I will happily give it credit for this one thing: it has made seven seasons of successful television by presenting a vastly intelligent, socially awkward, independently successful woman as its main character. A female Spock, if you will, the very kind of character that Gene Roddenberry was forbidden to put into original Star Trek.

But I digress: only a true nerd would liken being pregnant to Alien and mean it in a good way. Emily Deschanel, we salute you.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
