When The Nerd Machine first announced the vaguely titled “Zac & Friends” panel for Nerd HQ, many a nerd immediately jumped to the conclusion that this would be a Chuck Reunion panel. And ladies and gents, TNM did not disappoint. They even Skyped in the lovely Yvonne who was in Montreal shooting a film. Even though we could see her, she couldn’t see us and the cuteness that ensued was off the charts.
More adorbs Yvonne in a bit…
Cue the Jeffster-sized highlight reel of awesome!
I want to start this off by saying, it was wonderful to see Dave step out of the shadows and moderate this panel. He is the pulse of TNM and just an absolute sweetheart. We adore him.
Warning: staring directly into Mr. McPartlin’s eyes is dangerous. Proceed with caution.
The more things change, the more they stay the same…
My 15 seconds of fame
If you ever find yourself sitting in the front row of a panel with a plethora of talented and badass people and have the chance to ask a question to said badass people, you ask a question.
Look, everybody! I’m on the YouTube!!! *ahem* Back to that burning question that I had answered.
I now present to you the Ben & Jerry’s Chuck Collection
The Zac Cookies and Cha-Ching: Cookies and cream ice cream sprinkled with money and gold foil
The Minge Choco-mite: Chocolate ice cream with crushed Tim Tams, mint slices & Vegemite chocolate chips
The Captain Awesome Deep Dish: Lou Malnati’s pepperoni and sausage pizza
The Murica Cinnamon Dough Chunk: Crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch swirled into chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream
And if you want to own those awesome Nerd HQ

Elizabeth, the wardrobe maven
Special guest Liz stole the panel (and our hearts). Adam suggested that her and Yvonne should have a show together. We couldn’t agree more.
In a rather hilarious turn of events (before Zac inadvertently compared Pokemon Go to the current US elections), Zac got extremely upset when he couldn’t see the Pokemon that was roaming the HQ stage.
The Y-Minge Dance
While I tried my best to pay attention to the men sitting right in front of me, I could not be swayed by the adorableness that is Yvonne Strahovski. She is a magical unicorn.
Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can all re-live the entire epicness of this panel care of The Nerd Machine right here.
Being in the room where it happened (“H”) was an absolute treat and definitely one of the many highlights from this year’s Nerd HQ. Thanks again to Dave, Ryan, Zac, Adam, and of course Yvonne for a fun afternoon of laughs.
‘Til next time,
