  1. Good gravy I love your Nerd News posts! Where to begin! New Sailor Moon - my young teenage self is doing cartwheels; I was so obsessed with Sailor Moon. Those Disney princess oil paintings are STUNNING. Basically drooling on my keyboard over here. Also, I didn't know that anyone thought you COULD give your child a peanut allergy by eating peanuts while pregnant. That makes no sense!

  8. You'll probably be fine after episode 2. I really pretty much laid it all out in my comment, though.
