I love Stargate.  I don’t enthuse much about it around here because I’ve already got a lot on my plate, and I do try to keep things at least marginally related to game design.  (Yes, yes, I could rant about Stargate Worlds, but they have kind of slipped off of my radar.  Woe is me.)

Still, if you’ve ever had a fandom tingle in your bones for Stargate, especially SG-1 or Atlantis, you might get a kick out of what my little sister did recently:

Chappa Pie

Yes, that’s a very punny riff on the Gou’ald name for the Stargate, the “chappa’ai”.  She’s an English major, so she’s got to get it out of her system now and then.  My little brother is an artist, so of course he had to chip in.

Oh, and yes, I have seen the pie in person, and it’s awesome.  I just wish I’d had a hand in its creation because I like that sort of creativity.

I almost feel guilty for introducing my family to Stargate, considering that they have taken the fandom *coughobsessioncough* WAY past what I’ve ever done (Gou’ald logo design)… but at the same time, there’s just something heartwarming to see my siblings employing their talents and having fun with something that I happen to like too.  I hope that I can do better for my children; give them the good while not sending them off the deep end.

Then again, perhaps this isn’t a surprise, though.  My mother did introduce us all to MacGyver, so SG-1 was a natural successor to the throne.  RDA is the man.

Anyway, go check out her blog.  The pie isn’t the only great part about their party.
