Fan Girl Friday

Fan Girl Friday Mario Badge

Another week in the books, folks! And what better way to welcome the weekend than with a plethora of nerdy news and novelties just for you!

Avengers: The Age of Ultron hits theaters in a little less than two weeks! I think I need to prepare for the premiere by scoring one of these A-DORK-ABLE dresses from Hot Topic!

I REALLY want the Loki one! Seriously, how cute are these?! Sadly, they’re not available in stores yet, but they will be soon! You can actually head over to Hot Topic’s website and pre-order yours now!

You guys know I love The Muppets, so when I heard that there was a newly-discovered animal that looked just like Kermit, I did the arm flail:

Kermit

Isn’t he a cutie?! Technically, this little guy’s name is Hyalinobatrachium dianae but I’ll call him Kermit for now.

Being a child of the late 80’s/early 90’s, I was around for a lot of the great, new Disney classics as well as some smooth R&B. So when I saw this mash-up, I squealed with delight:

With the new Star Wars trailer hitting the web, there’s tons of new SW swag hitting stores, too! Like these awesome Han and Leia rings:

i love you i know rings

I think I know what Huff the Hubs can get me for Mother’s Day!

Happy fangirling!

Iiiiits Friday!

I’ve spent the majority of the day carbing up for my marathon on Sunday. And let me tell ya…eating is F-U-N! I think I’m going to list it as one of my favorite hobbies on Facebook after today.

I’ve got gobs of geekery to share with you so let’s dive right in!

First, man-oh-man is there a plethora of movie news out about some highly-anticipated films!

We all know Henry Cavill is Superman and Ben Affleck with be donning the cowl in Zac Snyder’s Superman vs. Batman but it looks as though there’s a third party being thrown into the ring! That would be Cyborg–a character first introduced in the comic book back in 1980–who, after a tragic accident, becomes a mechanized superhero! Fun fact: the actor playing Cyborg has also been rumored to be in the next installment of the Star Wars films!

Where my 80’s girls at? get ready to squeal with joy, because  Jem and the Holograms are reuniting! EEEEEEEE! That’s right people, our favorite Hubba Bubba-hued rockstar is making it to the big screen with a live-action movie titled–what else?–Jem and the Holograms!

If the leading lady looks familiar, its probably because you’ve seen her in such gems (pun TOTES intended) as Sharknado and Ace Venture, Pet Detective Jr. Yes. You read that right.

 

I am counting down the days until the final Hobbit movie makes its debut. However, I may have to re-do the screen print t-shirts I’ve made because P.J. (AKA, Peter Jackson) has decided to change the title from The Hobbit: There and Back Again, to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Yeah. I’m serious.

There’s been a tiny, Daryl-Dixon-shaped hole left in my heart since the season finale of The Walking Dead. And its going to be AT LEAST 6 months until I get to see my favorite crossbow-wielding bad boy crack some zombie skulls. But maybe I can find solace with one of these, and snuggle up to it every night while singing Soft Kitty…

Claimed.

Claimed.

 

As I’ve said (about a gazillion times) I’m running a marathon this Sunday! My first (and ONLY) marathon. I’ve got everything I need: GU, running shoes, trashbag poncho in case it rains, but I’m missing something else. What am I missing? Earbuds shaped like my spirit animal: Grumpy Cat. Thankfully, Hot Topic is there for me in my hour of need:

I hate running.

I hate running.

 

Have a great weekend, peeps! And keep your fingers crossed the marathon isn’t a washout!
