Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday!

It was a beeeaaauuutiful day out today! I’m finally convinced that winter has FINALLY come and gone. And what better to way to celebrate the end of our Seasonal Affective Disorder than with some nerdy neat-os to kickstart your weekend!

Ever since The Avengers and Joss Whedon’s cleverly written, horribly disgusting insult was spewed by the We-Hate-To-Love-Him Loki, I’ve been looking for more intelligent ways to let people know they irritate me to my very core while also making me feel intellectual. Thankfully, ThinkGeek has exactly what I’ve been looking for! Its the Shakespeare Insult Generator!

"You apish, bald-pated abomination!"

“You apish, bald-pated abomination!”

It includes over 150K insults, created from The Bard’s own words!

 

Ever think that maybe Vader was just “misunderstood”? Maybe if someone would’ve taken the time to help him express himself as child, he wouldn’t have turned out the menacing, asthmatic madman we all know. I like to think that after a long day of choking Admirals, V-Man liked to kick back in the Death Star and sketch landscapes. Perhaps with this:

"Use the charcoal, Luke."

“Use the charcoal, Luke.”

This sketchbook–designed like Vader’s torso–comes with 6 pencils, 2 erasers, and the front opens up to store it all! Awesome, right?

 

So, whilst perusing Pinterest the other night, I came across this picture:

Fancy!

Fancy!

The pin description said: “This is NOT Photoshopped!” I was skeptical. So, I did some research. Turns out, this crazy-colorful bird really does exist! Its called a Pink-necked Green Pigeon! They are typically found in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Cambodia! Pretty, huh?

 

Remember a few months ago when I said I was reading Lois Lowry’s The Giver? Well guess what?! They made a movie about it and the trailer is FINALLY here! Check it out!
