Geek Alert!!!

So I was at the doctors today and what magazine did he have in the office? What magazine am I getting a subscription to? There were some fascinating articles too, I can’t wait.

I’m always amazed at the magazines out there, there’s something for everyone, really! I also have subscriptions to “Philadelphia Magazine” and “Victorian Homes“. Do you subscribe? To what and why?

    I currently subscribe to Computer Gaming World, America’s First Freedom (NRA monthly magazine), Fantasy and Science Fiction (short stories) and the Ensign (a church magazine).

    I would like subscriptions to Bon Apetite, National Geographic and Golf Digest.

    I get Rolling Stone,Time, and Entertainment Weekly, for the music, news, and movie gossip. Sons1 & 2 get Details for fashion tips (Cuz they’re handsome studmuffins)And they also get something wrapped in brown and something wrapped in black. They claim they are Art Digest type of magazines, but I’m doubting that one!

    I subscribe to America’s Civil War, Civil War Times, National Geographic, Discovery, History, Who’s Who in Pornography, Available Women In Your Town, and Christian Science Monitor. They all have pretty good pictures in them. Well, the SCM not so much. But boy do the rest of them.

    ooohhhh, I love National Geographic, also.

    metalmom, yeah, my money is on the fact that they are probably nudy magazines.

    coffeypot, do the civil war magazines have pictures of dead people? how does the wife feel about the porno and women in your town magazines?

    PC Magazine, Maximum PC, This Old House, FHM, Maxim, TV Technology, Broadcast Engineering, Mission Critical Communications, and my latest sub, Model Railroader. I’m planning to subscribe to QST (amateur radio magazine) soon as well. Five of those mags I get for free, either through work, or from free offers I’ve found.

    before i can subscribe to a magazine … i need a subscription for more time in the day!!!

    mom gets US and the little princess in the house reads it like it’s the bible … i had to tell her that everything in there may not be true … i look at the pictures and cuss at demi moore for having 3 kids and looking like that!!!

    and hell i wouldn’t mind something wrapped in black!!

  7. Teri said,

    Tina, mom gets US? wow!

    Demi looks like that because she has lots of money and a plastic surgeon on retainer.

    Teri- America’s First Freedom is about the Second Amendment (defense of it mostly) as well as: Guns in general, self defense, target shooting, gun safety, hunting, protecting yourself legally etc…

    It can be pretty political where the second amendment is concerned. For good or for bad depending on how you view the issue.

    I used to get Sports Illustrated, but stopped it a few years back because it just wasn’t that great anymore. I get runners world, my wife gets People, and my 2 dogs receive cooking cats weekly.

  10. Dick Small said,

    Family Circle and Martha Stewart Living.

  11. Teri said,

    Skylers dad – see, even the dogs get magazines. hopefully my furry kitties aren’t in this issue. YIKES!

    Dick – it’s what I expected of you. you never disappoint.

  12. Just Dave said,

    British Heritage, In Britain, National Geographic, Family Handyman, Consumer Reports and something wrapped in black that we just get for the articles.

  13. N said,

    currently, our house receives a TON of cooking/restaurant magazines and/or pregnancy magazines.

    i also seem to get, like, two Victoria Secret catalogs a day so i am considering that to be a subscription at this point. i have instructed my husband to make sure they are disposed of being my eyes catch sight of them and i lose my cool. once i have had the baby and dropped the baby weight, he may then stop hiding them from me.

    I never miss an issue of Stash.
    Word.

  15. Teri said,

    mixednut – who knew you were so gangsta? word to your momma!

    no disrespect to your mom

    I keep them in a safe-deposit box in the basement of Fort Knox. I’m not stupid.

  17. Teri said,

    coffeypot – you’re a smart man!

  18. Skittles said,

    I get Good Housekeeping and Reader’s Digest.

    Hubby gets Model Railroader, Micro Mart (tool catalog), and a woodworking one.

  19. Lori said,

    Self, Glamour, Allure, Cooking Light, and Fast Company.

    I’m thinking about subscribing to O, but then I would become one of her minions by association, I think. I really do like her magazine, though.

    Archaeology looks very cool!

    I do not get magazines at home. Generally I get them from the hair salon, doc’s office, nail salon, and the dentist office. I always ask if I can BORROW the mags with a promise to return them when I visit the office again. My intentions are always to return the mags, but it never happens.

    My husband used my name to subscribe to Playboy to save $$$$. New subscripors paid less.
