I've mentioned it before, but The Big Bang Theory is one of my absolute favorite TV shows and if you're a geek like me you really ought to check it out sometime. Spoiler alert - if you watch the show I'm just about to discuss this week's episode... This week they did a bit where the guys had been following Adam West around Pasadena  (hey, if you saw Adam West driving around town wouldn't you follow him?) and stumbled into a garage sale where they bought a box of miscelaneous items for $65. Among various other treasures was the One Ring. The one, single, remaining ring used in the filming of The Lord of the Rings trilogy (just about the best movies ever made in my book). Wow. Of course the guys all fought over it and it was hilarious. I thought this was especially interesting as I've been trying to buy myself one of these rings for a while but haven't found one in my size yet. Yes, my precious...

I don't think I've mentioned this before, but for the last several months (ever since I moved into this house) I've been receiving Martha Stewart Living in the mail. I can't for the life of me figure out why. At first I thought maybe they were being delivered for the previous owner of the house but sure enough my name and address are on the shipping label. Then I thought maybe one of my friends sent it as a gag lift (or even worse a gift gift) but I've asked around and either none of my friends did it or none of them would admit it. Nevertheless, this month things changed...

This month Marth Stewart Living never arrived. Instead, Maxim showed up. When I opened the mailbox and saw it there, quite literally the clouds parted, the sun came out, and angels were suddenly singing all around me... This my friends is justice. Yes, I do believe in karma. I give money to the homeless dude outside of our office with the cardboard sign that says "Lear Jet ran out of fuel" and I always I park my humongous truck in the spots designated for beasts such as this. This is my reward. What goes around comes around folks...

To bring these two seemingly random subject togther, this month's Maxim included a special interview and photo shoot with Kaley Cuoco, star of The Big Bang Theory where she plays the smokin' hot chick that lives across the hall from the geeks. In the article she says that she loves geeks, she only dates dudes that like dogs, they have to be funny, and she prefers older men.

Kaley, if you're out there, I can be reached at headgeek@solarwinds.com
