My name is Jessica Lathrop and I have been a big nerd since forever. I have an interest in indy and DC Comics, roleplaying games in the pen&paper, live action, and video game varieties. I am a computer programmer and Classical music dork. I love HGTV, the History Channel, and Discovery Channel. Pop culture is just about my favorite guilty pleasure. NPR is win.

I am fortunate to work from home 4 days a week because I live forever away from where I work. As noted in the title of my blog, I live in the country after having spent the majority of my life in urban settings.

This blog is my collection of nerdly musings. It has replaced my LiveJournal because they irritated me. Enjoy!
