  1. This may need to be added to my Geek Wall of Fame along with my Malcolm Reynolds action figure and myStan Lee autograph. Shockingly enough, I actually don’t work in IT, nor do I live in my parents’ basement. Huh…

  2. It’s awesome! BTW, I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED that you talked about the Zombie Apocalypse on CNN!!

  3. It does resemble something else. Just saying. But it’s an awesome card, nonetheless. Geek cards rule!!

  4. “That’s a sonic-screwdriver-blow-dryer. Not a sex toy.”

    Can’t it be both?

  5. Awesome card, but would be awesomer (totally a word) if it mentioned your zombie apocalypse preparedness.

  6. Maybe we should now introduce ‘adopt or love a geek week’ and then you can come and stay with us all for a week at a time, but only if you bring the stuffed menagerie with you!!!!!!!

  7. You look so geeky in that blazer with the chest pockets and the skinny tie. And I’m so glad you clarified about what you are holding…’cuz I WAS thinking…

  8. Well, now you’ve done it. You’ve crossed that fine line into the geek universe. There’s no going back. You’ll have to start doing comic book & sci-fi conventions. In costume. Start hunting down your silver boots and red bustier now.

  9. That is awesome! I am jealous of the geek card. I surround myself with geek folk. Not consciously it just seems to happen. Not that I don’t have my own geek tendencies. I didn’t think that looked like a sex toy until you mentioned it. Now I think it’s kind of more bad ass thinking of it in the dirty way…

  10. Holy schnike that’s brilliant. And, I’m sure that crazy ass blow dryer can be used for many things, like blending drinks for example.

  11. Fab-u-lous! Of course that isn’t a sex toy, my sonic-screwdriver-blow-dryer lights up just like that…although mine uses batteries, guess yours has more power.

    Very cool card, show it to TSA when you travel, I’ll bet it works just like photo id.

  12. Who looks at a screwdriver and says “This could use more sonic?”

    Congrats, and rock on!

  13. GAH! Let’s try this again…

    Who looks at a hairdryer and says “This could use more sonic?”

    Congrats, and rock on!

  14. OMG, just when I think you can’t be any more awesome. Although just when I think I have “varied” interests, the universe conspires to show me how everything is geekdom for me. Not that I’m complaining.

  15. OH I WISH I COULD COME SEE YOU! I live right next to book passage but that’s my daughter’s opening night of her show…. drats! And out here I think boob signing is legal too!

  16. See, you made me type “sonic screwdriver sex toy” into the search box, and now Google knows much much more about me than it should.

  17. Okay, but I thought your battle cry was WOLVERINES!!
    Though, Let’s Pretend This Never Happend will be so much more useful in real life.

  18. I knew it was a sonic hairdryer immediately…but I think it requires Doctor Who knowledge to even comprehend your Geek of the Week card. I want one! Actually I want all of the “Geeks.” Love TheBloggess.com Thank you Jenny for being you!


  19. Love the card and that you are 10, who I considered tied for best Doctor with 4.

    Hate that your book tour does not include Chicago (we are better than all those cities combined…as long as it is between May and September-excluding August).

    Am surprised there were no Bloggess costumes at C2E2. There was sad Batman, though. As in, they don’t have my favorite flavor of ice cream…sad Batman. We may have to do something about Bloggess costumes at cons.

  20. You should print a load of these off and hand them out on your book tour as if they were business cards.

  21. I want one!! The card. Ah well… Even the screw driver thingy… So what? It’s not what it looks like…
    You are better than the best awesome around!

  22. I agree with Cassie–anyone who knows you knows your battle cry is WOLVERINES! Despite that, totally awesome and completely collectible.

  23. Only one geek a week? That’s utter bullshit. Oh well, You can check out my non-geek blog if you want to. Nerds need a laugh too, don’t they?

  24. That does totally look like a sex toy now that you mention it. I was thinking some kind of ray gun or something, I have no clue why I thought that somehow that fit. Very cool trading card!

  25. That thing in your hand looks suspiciously like one of the intravaginal ultrasound machines that our fine representatives in Pennsylvania want to use on women seeking abortions. Hmm. Well, I know you’d employ yours only to perform good deeds.

  26. I’m glad you clarified that blow dryer. I was both intrigued and alarmed. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

  27. Best wishes on your journey, thank you for preventing my suicide this week 🙂

  28. Um… I thought the battle cry was “WOLVERINES!” ? Pretty Bad-Ass card, though. Well done! 🙂

  29. Well fuckity fukc fukc fukc!!! Just learned that my husband tacked on a book to our Amazon Order that won’t release until April 24th. So I had been anticipating receiving your book ASAP and now won’t get it until the end of the month at best (assuming his book actually releases when it is advertized to). I am beyond PISSED. Now I may have to go to Blue Willow and buy an extra copy for you to sign just because … I.NEED.YOUR.BOOK.NOW!!!!!


  30. I once whipped this card out at a Magic the Gathering Game… Not only did I win, but everyone owes me their first born son… Or a beer. Dealer’s choice.

  31. Wow! That is the awesomest sex-toy-looking hairdryer ever. I’d totally buy one and leave it sitting proudly on my bathroom counter so as to spark interesting conversations with guests and visiting mothers.

  32. Sister- you can WORK A Pinstriped zoot Suit. Think of the blow outs you could administer if you dressed like that everyday!

  33. How can you say that a sonic-screwdriver-blow-dryer is NOT a sex toy? Come-on girl! Live a little!

  34. I keep aspiring to be a geek, and my friends keep assuring me that I really am one. I think if I had a geek card I would finally feel secure that I have my place in the geek world. Is it a cheat if you make it yourself.

  35. You are getting the best publicity money can’t buy! You go, girlfriend!

    [Note: Of course, you realize the rest of us bloggers are now insanely jealous and are busy sending sub-cerebral psychic messages to Beyonce, Copernicus, and Ferris Mewler to thwart your collation powers! i’m just sayin’…….]

  36. I got my book on the Kindle! It’s freaking awesome! Forcing myself to go to sleep right now even though I’ve only read half. Can’t wait for tomorrow to finish. Jenny, you never disappoint. Please. Don’t. Ever. Stop. Xoxo

  37. Your geeky street cred has risen exponentially with the inclusion of a geek card. Congratulations.
    Is this like Pokemon cards? Can we battle you against anything? And what would you win against in a geek-out battle?
    AND…Are you worth or less more geek collectors’ points than a Neil Gaiman or a George Takei?

  38. I’m bringing my wife home from the hospital after her knee replacement today. If she doesn’t have a doctor’s appointment on the 26’th I’ll bring her up to Allen to meet you. Of course at our age to sing her boob you start at the belt area. I have to check with the bookstore to see if you can meet Bingo T. Pug who is not taxidermied.

  39. AWESOME! Interesting they went with the 10th Doctor outfit, but the sonic hair-dryer looks more like the 11th Doctor’s. Yes, I know. I’m a nerd.

  40. what an HONOR to be selected for a geek-a-week card? the only distraction — they gave you 10’s costume and 11’s screwdriver? it hurts to be an obsessive nerd… ANYway — can’t wait to meet you at blue willow! it’s really hard to put off buying your book until the 24th!

  41. The thought of the sonic screwdriver as a sex toy is making me coddle mah cooch. Because ouch.

    Also, HOW FUCKING COOL IS THIS? (Not my cooch coddling, silly, the geek card).

  42. “PS. That’s a sonic-screwdriver-blow-dryer. Not a sex toy.”

    Anyone who needs to have this pointed out to them…doesn’t DESERVE to have it pointed out to them. Let them suffer in ignorance.

  43. Absolutely fantastic! NOW you’re famous. I would, however, like to know why the East Coast is getting no love on the book tour . . . .I really seriously could have used a stop by the Bloggess in the Washington D.C. area.

  44. Listened to the podcast. I have to tell you that even though my mom has never read a word you’ve written, when she watched you on CNN she also expected your voice to be a whole lot different, based only upon my descriptions of your blog postings. All I can figure out is that I must have said “Knock, knock motherfucker” in a deep-throated, Kathleen Turner voice.

  45. I think you should add Atlanta to your tour. If you do I will attempt to find you another mushroom shaped like a boobie. Or maybe I’ll just print off the picture you posted and try to convince you I took it. Either way: come to Atlanta!!!! <3

  46. Just wanted to leave a comment saying I read your book, I freaking loved it and it’s 5am here in NZ! And I’ve only just been able to yawn because I’ve been too busy giggling to be able to get a yawn out 🙂
    And now I will go back to lurking (sleeping, temporarily) – hope the tour goes well ^^

  47. First time commenter here… I think they have your motto and battle cry mixed up, it should be:
    Motto: Let’s pretend this never happened
    Battle cry: Like Mother Teresa! Only better!

    That is all.

  48. Whoah. I might have to rent Little House on the Prairie now. Also, I don’t see the orangutan on your card. Am I confused? Did he draw it somewhere else?

  49. Why can’t it BE BOTH?

    Sonic *blow*dryer?



    Now I’m thinking about my hot air being sent up my cooter,
    and how uncomfortable that could be.


    It was a good plan!
