Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, Earthlings!

This morning I was woken up by the Great God of Thunder, Thor himself. My windows were rattling and rain pounded against the apartment. This was all at 4:30 a..m. I’m assuming the hammer-wielding son of Odon was just passing through, but I was unable to go back to bed. I contemplated not doing a blog today but I know millions dozens of you would be heartbroken if I didn’t post. So, here I am!

Is anyone else on Sherlock countdown?! I. CANNOT. WAIT for season 3! Rumor is, the show will debut first this fall in the UK and probably January-ish 2014 for us in ‘Merica. To satiate your need for all things Benedict Cumberbatch/Holmes, check out this awesome video of BC reading a little of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s awsomeness:

We have SO many movies/TV shows to look forward to this fall and winter! Including the next Hobbit movie! If you just can’t wait and need to have your fill of something Hobbit-related {whilst improving your spelling abilities} check out this bad boy from Think Geek!

Scrabble, Shire-style.

It also comes with “adventure cards” to shake up the game play! Its like Catan meets Scrabble!

If you know me/have spent five minutes around me, you know I hate noise. Some say I’m just a crabby patty, others say I suffer from Misophonia. I say I just don’t have the patience to deal with your loud voice/annoying noise-related quirks. Evidently I’m in a world of hurt when the baby gets here. (Did you know they cry? Like, all the time?!) So when I saw this pacifier from TG, I rejoiced! I think I may get one for Hermione. I wonder if it really works…..?

Just don't turn it to 11.

Just don’t turn it to 11.

And speaking of my soon-to-arrive-spawn… Sigh. It seems a day can’t go by without people getting all judgy/having something to say about the fact that we’re naming our daughter Hermione or that we’re doing her nursery in Star WarsThe reaction I hate the most is: “Star Wars? For a girl?” Bah. That makes me want to choke them with The Force and drop them on Hoth for a wampa to deal with. But this week, while perusing Pinterest, I found this awesome video. Which, made me even more proud of the decisions Huff the Hubs and I are making in regards to our little one, but it also made me tear up a little. My favorite quote? “Don’t tell my daughters that Legos, robots, and superheroes are just for boys.”
