I hate to make it seem like "Chez's Favorite Things" around here -- especially since at the top of that list would be the thought of seeing Oprah hit by a semi hauling Häagen-Dazs cookies and cream -- but I wanted to give a little shout-out to a new niche website whose creation I think is kind of overdue. The Mary Sue is a newly minted part of the Mediaite family that caters to one particular demographic: nerd girls.
The site actually prides itself on embracing and fostering geek girl culture and, so far at least, it does it without pandering to any particular tired cliché. What's more, The Mary Sue features some really kick-ass writers -- including one of my favorite people-I've-never-actually-met, Jamie Frevele.
So, yeah, cool nerdy girls who can write; as I hinted at a little while ago on Twitter, it's gonna be like one constant hardcore crush for me.
Take a peek.
