Hi Two-Headed Nerd fans – I want to take this blog to introduce myself to you. I’m Matt Baum’s wife, Kacie. I work in outreach and events (aka I get paid to go and host a lot of parties which in turn means I get an ungodly amount of free booze) at a medical university in Omaha, Nebraska.

Matt and I met at an Andrew W.K. concert over 8 (or 9, who remembers this kind of stuff?) years ago. Flash forward 8 (again, maybe 9 – seriously, I feel like I should know this, but have no damn clue) years and we are married with two fabulous pugs leading a fun little life.

I knew Matt was a nerd back when we were dating, but when we started living together, how big a nerd finally began to creep out little by little. Finally after many glasses of wine I decided it would be fun to start a blog (Girl Meets Nerd) to document what it is like living with a nerd. Let me tell you, it has been an adventure for sure!

My blog included photos of trips we took (obviously we had different experiences in Chicago), me reviewing movies he made me watch (Cat Shit One *shiver*), comic book reviews (if I want to see breasts, I prefer Blake Lively’s), conversations and sometimes just everyday nonsense (I was so happy when Skyrim broke).

So what does this all mean? Well, it means I will be continuing my current blog and posting on such items as I did before but now all you loyal Two-Headed Nerd worshipers get to experience it as well. Since you all have been so nice while I ramble through my introduction I will give you a little tease of what’s to come: Hanging with my husband’s nerd friends vs. hanging with his rock star friends (epic throw down when you really think about it, place your bets now); movies that I haven’t seen recommended as “classics” by my husband and possibly a comparison of the new Total Recall vs. the old one (this I am dreading, I really hope the new one is out of the theaters by the time I get around to this. If there is a god, let’s make that happen. Thanks!).

I will try to update this blog once a week – those are apparently the rules dictated down from Matt and Joe to me (for my reaction to that click here) – but I make no promises (for Matt and Joe’s reaction click here). You will soon realize in my life priorities such as exercising, my pugs, drinking, eating, drinking some more and Keanu Reeves are very high on my list and writing is very low.

In conclusion (FINALLY, right?) thanks again for letting me into the Two-Headed Nerd universe; I will try not to let you down, but I probably will and Matt and Joe will have to yell at me via the blog and their podcast. Such is the life when you are married to a nerd…sigh.
