Growing up I was a closet Geek, now I'm out and proud! I have my likes and my dislikes but I don't let a dislike cloud an opinion. I'll give everything a go and will sit and be tortured through a lot of mundane things. Right at this moment I'm really into the whole Doctor Who / Sherlock / Hunger Games thing. Now if only a cross over were to happen.....

Sherlock coming back with a new series AND a special!

So at 2.21pm today the BBCOne twitter fed who had been teasing us all night with the hashtag #221back announced the recording plans for Series 4 of Sherlock…..

And a Special!

The Special will begin filming in January with the three episodes of Series 4 being filmed later in the year.

We have been promised the biggest mystery yet.

The game is truly afoot and we should all carry on expecting the unexpected!


FIFA 2014 World Cup : Team Slogans

Every country had one. Some were awesome, some were strange and one or two just made me scratch my head.

In the first of my random blogs (sorry I haven’t been keeping up to date with the games, personal issues meant I only watched one game really this week!) we take a look at my favourite… And not so favourite slogans!

FIFA 2014 World Cup : Germany v Ghana

Where did all the blogs that I said we’d be doing go?

What happened?

I do apologize! Unfortunately we learnt the Italy score before we saw the match and we’ve been too depressed to watch it yet… Even if it comes AFTER Italy’s last game (which again we won’t be watching… Angry face!) we will live blog their matches. I mean Italy is our team of course we will!

Lets forget all that though and focus on Germany’s second match!

FIFA 2014 World Cup : Day 7 Round Up (some of Day 8!)

So a late blog and what have we got for you?

Matches galore!

We actually got the Rooney goal England have been waiting for! We also got the England defeat that certain cold hearted members of the GeekMind forum were hoping for.

The Champions are gone. I know shocking!

The hosts are boring. Even more shocking!

We’ve had dancing and hair tying. Fouls and tears.

Day 8 is nearly over (so tomorrow’s blog is going to be short!) and we are steam rolling ahead in the Group stages. Exciting, exciting, exciting!

(Balotelli apparently wants a kiss from the Queen…. Someone send her out there…. Even if England get knocked out!)

FIFA 2014 World Cup : Spain v Chile

So after taking some time away from my computer last night thanks toΒ  a borefest with the hosts I’m back to see whether Spain can bounce back from a 5-1 thrashing from the Dutch (who I still haven’t seen play yet!)

This is a crucial game for Spain, if they lose they are out of the World Cup completely, they can do whatever they like against Australia it just won’t matter they will be long gone.

So will we lose them?
