Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Background

 

Its official: we’re halfway through January. And, already so much has happened! I couldn’t bring myself to write a blog post yesterday because I was so torn up about the passing of Alan Rickman. Though I bleed the red and gold of Gryffindor House, I think we can all say that, right now, we’re all Slytherins.

The passing of such a great actor and the man we’ve all come to love as he portrayed one of the most misunderstood characters in the HP universe, has really left a hole in so many people’s hearts.

Yesterday, at Harry Potter World in Florida, fans showed their grief in beautiful ways. A large group banded in front of the Hogwarts ride, wands held high.

And inside, a single lily was placed outside of Snape’s potion’s classroom:

Rest in peace, Alan. We will always remember you.

 

Now, I’d like to switch gears and show you some delightfully dorky deals I’ve found to brighten your mood!

Over at The Geeky Hostess, there’s not only recipes but there’s also one-of-a-kind finds sure to bring a smile to your face! Like this ah-may-zing three-pack of fandom teas!

Geeky-Hostess-Tea-Combo HP Firefly Doctor Who

The 3-pack includes Mechanic’s Blend (Firefly), Doctor’s Blend (Doctor Who), and Lion’s Blend (Gryffindor/Harry Potter)! I’m a part of all three fandoms so this is PERF for me! (Hint, hint, Huff the Hubs!)

 

Huff the Tot hasn’t worn bibs in a loooooong time (though, she–and I–probably should!). But soon, we’ll be adding to our brood and we’ll need to dig those things out of storage. But, I think I may buy a few of these, just to keep those meal time messes humorous:

Travelling Sideshow Bibs

These silly sideshow bibs not only protect the kiddo from messes, but also help you have pictures that will no doubt embarrass them in the future! Its a win-win! Ha!

 

Even though I work from home, I know how it can be working in an office. Some days, you just do NOT want to make small talk with people. And, there’s really no way to let people know this without coming off as a jerk. So let your mug do the talking for you!

Mixed Messages Mug

This mug from Fred Flare comes with re-positionable letters so you can let your coworkers know when you’ve finally had enough coffee to make it through 10 minutes of chit-chat!

Happy fangirling!

Ahhh….we finally made it through another week!

Time to feast your eyes on some geeky goodies! Let’s do this thang!

This first find is legen–wait for it (and I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because the next part of this word is)–dary! Kick off your weekend by suiting up in this amazing suitjama set from Think Geek!

Sleepovers have never been so classy.

Book lovers, unite! There’s FINALLY a game for us to show off our knowledge of authors, their works, and how big bibliophiles we are! This Notable Novelists card game from Fred Flare is sure to jazz up any book club meeting!

Collect them all!

Collect them all!

 

Lately, my Pinterest news feed has been flooding with knitting and crocheting patterns. Unfortunately, I have chubby fingers and zero patience, so I refrain from such activities. However, the other day whilst walking around Michael’s, I saw the most AMAZING book! I think I might have to pick up knitting!

Get yo knit on.

Get yo knit on.

Inside are awesome projects from all of our favorite shows: Firefly, Doctor Who, Sherlock; as well as Star Wars and so many more! (To my knitting friends: get ready to have some orders placed!)

 

And finally, is anyone else SO excited about the new Captain America movie? Even though I hear Cap and the Black Widow totes kiss (I’m coming for you, Scar Jo; look out!) it still doesn’t hamper my nerd squeals. Check out the trailer that recently debuted online!

Oh Captain… you’re so dreamy.

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

You’ve survived another workweek and I survived my first week back to work! (Technically I wasn’t at work since I work from home, but still…)

Even though I’ve been juggling work and Hermione, I’ve still found time to scour the interwebs to find some awesomely nerdy finds for you fangirls and boys!

Let do this!

Its officially fall, y’all. The high today in OKC was 54! And this weather means chilly nights! So grab a hot steaming cup of Madame Rosmerta’s hot cocoa and cuddle up with a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them while wearing this:

"Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?"

“Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?”

Represent your house while watching an HP marathon! There’s Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw to choose from! Magical powers not included.

 

Get ready to rock game night through all of space, cowboy! Check out the new Firefly game!

"You can't take the dice from me."

“You can’t take the dice from me.”

From what I understand, its a little bit of Firefly and a little bit of Settlers of Catan. Here’s the description on Amazon: “Players begin with a ship, and travel from planet to planet, hiring crew, purchasing ship upgrades, and picking up cargo to deliver (jobs) all in the form of cards.” Some of the cargo is illegal but the fun is not!

 

Working from home has its advantages: staying in my jammies, being able to have Netflix on in the background, and yes: spying on the neighbors. In our old building, there was a lot to watch/overhear (I wasn’t “snooping”. If you stand outside yelling at each other, you’ve suspended all rights to privacy. You’ve also given me the right to call the cops and watch from my peephole.) Our new building isn’t as exciting… I may need to get this notebook and just watch people at the park:

Don't mind me, I'm just reading a good book...

Don’t mind me, I’m just reading a good book…

 

If you know me, you know my humor is very juvenile. I can’t help it. Farts and poop are hilarious and if you don’t find them funny, you’re dead inside. So when I saw this video I CRACKED up. I leave you this Friday with a little bit of potty humor:

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday all! Before you head to the lake/to the cabin/to your couch for the Labor Day weekend, check out these awesome geek-tacular finds I’ve rounded up from the interwebs!

 

First up from Think Geek, check out these awesome SDCC exclusive Doctor Who Mini Journals! I actually have the “River Song” version. I’m determined to one day walk up to someone and say: “Okay, now where are we?” and start flipping through the pages.

The Doctor writes everything down. And you should too.

I hate doing laundry. It really is the bane of my existence. I feel like I’m washing clothes just about everyday. But, I think it’d be a lot more fun if I had this ADORABLE hamper from Fred Flare!

Look! Even Dorothy has one of these!

Look! Even Dorothy has one of these!

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And now, it can be the most intimidating. Check out this skull egg shaper from Perpetual Kid!

Eat your bacon, matey!

Who else is ready for the premiere of The Walking Dead?! I am so psyched! I cannot wait to see what happens this season! Especially with all the trailers and sneak peeks floating around the internet! If you just can’t seem to get enough of Rick and the gang, look at what Diamond Comics is releasing October 10th!

Go directly to Quarantine. Do not pass Go.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun Labor Day weekend! Keep your fingers crossed, people. I’m hoping this is a TRUE “labor day” weekend for me!

Happy Friday Peeps! (And happy birthday, BB!)

I’ve got some great goodies to share with and help you kick your weekend off right!

For you dog lovers (which, how could you NOT be a dog lover?) check out this AMAZE-BALLS leash from Fred Flare! Its seriously the fanny pack (or, if you’re Ted Mosby: ‘El Gonzo con la rinonera!’) of the leash-world!

Need something? Let me use my Mary Poppins leash...

Need something? Let me use my Mary Poppins leash…

This bad boy is retractable, has space for treats, poo-bags, a light for when you’re walking at night, and a clock! Plus it comes in snazzy colors!

 

Also from Fred Flare are these gems. I’m a little sad I didn’t know about these sooner; they would’ve been a GREAT accessory for tomorrow night’s New Kids on the Block concert! I may go ahead and order them anyway…just to rock some old school style.

No need to hold a boombox to your ear, anymore!

Did you know Shark Week is coming up?! Have you seen the awesomely hilarious ad that Discovery Channel is running to promote their seven days of sea mayhem? Its pretty stinkin’ funny. Anywhoo, if you’re one of the many people who L-O-V-E-S SW, you NEED this mug from Perpetual Kid. Seriously:

I will never look at breakfast the same way again.

Its heat activated so when you pour in your morning cup of Joe, you unleash the power of Jaws on an unsuspecting swimmer.

 

Want to add a little chemistry to your evening’s cocktail? Check out these new laboratory shot glasses from Think Geek!

Have a great weekend everybody!

 

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

This is a Father’s Day edition of Fan Girl Friday! Mark your calendars, kids. Next Sunday is Father’s Day. That means celebrating the man that supports you financially so you can focus on being a independent man or woman.

I’ve rounded up some awesome gifts for the nerdy (and not-so-nerdy) dad on your list.

First up from Think Geek, do you have a spaced-out dad that likes gazing at the stars whilst also looking fancy?

Your fashion sense is out of this world, Dad!

Your fashion sense is out of this world, Dad!

 

Maybe you have a Whovian dad that needs a journal to record his “Big Book of Grievances” for the year…?

No spoilers.

No spoilers.

 

Perhaps you’ve got the kind of dad that, after helping to raise you, just needs a little extra help getting through the day? How about these handy dandy shot glasses? They’re doctor recommended!

Take two and then some Tylenol in the morning.

Or, your dad could be the kind that likes to hang out in the backyard, grilling to his heart’s content. Enter: Cooking for the Man Cave.

Everything you need to know about making a manly meal.

Everything you need to know about making a manly meal.

 

Every grillmaster needs the proper garb too. No “Kiss the Cook” for your dad, oh no. Your dad needs the ultimate apron. One that could not only make a mean burger, but also rule the galaxy with an iron fist.

I find your lack of seasoning disturbing.

Some may have sporty dads who also enjoy innuendos from Saturday Night Live while driving around the golf course.

People can't resist them.

People can’t resist them.

 

 

No matter what kind of dad you have, make sure to run out and get him something special for next Sunday. He deserves it after putting up with you for all these years, right?

Its Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!

The sun is (somewhat) shining, the birds are chirping, and Star Trek: Into Darkness is finally in theaters across the nation. Ah, what a day.

And, I’m about to make it even better with the gloriously geeky finds I’ve gathered this week!

 

Have I mentioned how much I love Grumpy Cat? I’m pretty sure he’s my spirit animal. And, you also know how much I heart the folks over at Big Bang Theory. What do you get when you mix the two? This awesome tee from Think Geek:

Even Sheldon would like this.

Since Huff the Hubs and I have a little padawan on the way, we really need to get ourselves prepped for her arrival. I think I should’ve registered for this from Fred Flare:

Popsicle molds and a cookbook for your little wookie.

I don’t have any tattoos -not because I have a “thing” against tats. I have a “thing” about needles. We don’t get along. So I’ll stick to the temporary ones. However, just because I don’t have any tattoos doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate them. And while perusing Pinterest, I found an awesome list of book/literacy-related tattoos! (I think my sister will LOVE the Boxcar Children themed one!)

 

Narnia: through the wardrobe and beneath her armpit.

Do you know what happens on May 26th?! Other than the fact that there will probably be some Memorial Day weekend sales going on… Arrested Development is BACK. I. CANNOT. WAIT. I have missed my cracked-out friends of the Bluth family (especially Buster: “I’m a monster!”) Have you seen the trailer yet? NO?! Then wait no more:
