Fan Girl Friday

Ah, Friday. Once again you grace us with your beautiful presence and boatloads of geeky gossip and fangirl fabulosity to get us through the last few hours of the grind!

Remember last summer when that weirdo-beardo statue of Colin Firth’s Mr. Darcy popped up in a lake in London, leaving many of scratching our heads and thinking, “Huh?” Well, our favorite sexy sleuth has done his own rendition of “Darcy-ing”, wet t-shirt and all! (Warning: this picture is very swoon-worthy. Try not to faint, ladies.)

"I love you, most ardently."

“I love you, most ardently.”

And he’s not just doing this so we can all bask in the glory of Benedict’s beauty. This is one of many shots taken for the “Give Up Clothes for Good” campaign, benefiting cancer research! Its a win-win!

 

In other crush-worthy-television-nerdy-boy news, the final season of How I Met Your Mother is going to be released on DVD in just 4 days! There’s going to be tons of bonus extras, including a MUCH better ending to the tale of Ted Mosby (but you can watch it before you buy it here) and we FINALLY get an answer to the question that’s been plaguing us since Season One: WHERE DID THE PINEAPPLE COME FROM?!

Seriously! We were told that all loose ends were going to be tied up but there’s was no reference to the pineapple incident at all in the season finale! That is, until now. Oh yes my friends, the mystery has been solved:

 

Comic Con 2015 tickets go on sale in TWO months, people! Hear that, Huff the Hubs? TWO. MONTHS. I think I need to start getting my cosplay outfits ready. Starting with this a-dork-able hoodie from Think Geek!

"Hey, puddin'!"

“Hey, puddin’!”

Isn’t it awesome?! I must has the precious!

 

Whenever I’m asked what my spirit animal is, its an easy answer: Grumpy Cat. I freaking love that feline! Even though she hates everything, I adore her (yeah, GC is totes a girl!). Which is why I am extremely excited that Lifetime is doing a movie about the kitty this winter. And the voice of the angsty cat? None other than Parks and Rec star, Aubrey Plaza! Isn’t that perfect?!

We hate all the same things.

We hate all the same things.

 

 

Do you realize that there are only 96 days until Christmas?! Let that sink in. And, if you’re like me, you know about half a dozen little girls who desperately want Frozen toys. If you’ve been to Target or Wal-Mart lately, you may have noticed that finding anything with Anna, Elsa, or Olaf’s face on it is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

But, according to The Huffington Post, Disney manufacturers WILL be able to provide dolls, action figures, and dress up outfits for your Frozen fan this holiday season! Disney claims they learned their lesson after what happened with The Little Mermaid. Evidently, “researchers” thought that little girls wouldn’t want to play with dolls with red hair (idiots) so they ordered basically ZERO dolls and/or memorabilia! They lost out on a ton of cashola and kids all over were forced to pretend to be Ariel in their bathtubs because there were zilch dolls!

 

All this talk about shopping and Christmas is getting me amped up for Black Friday! Maybe I should go look at my Black Friday prediction sites…

Thankful Thursdays

There are few things in the world I truly hate. The list is fairly small: poor grammar, people that wear a blue tooth in other places besides a boardroom (you’re in the GROCERY STORE, you’re not trading stocks!), and the fact that Moore has FOUR chicken tender/wing/nugget places next to each other within a 3-mile radius. But the thing I loathe with the fire of a thousand suns is: THE DENTIST.

 

He's pure evil, GC. You'll love him.

Although, now that I’ve pushed a baby out of a very intimate area, going to the dentist seems like a cake walk. Which brings me to today’s “thankful for” post. Today I am thankful for: Nitrous Oxide.

That's some strong stuff, Doc.

That’s some strong stuff, Doc.

Ever since I was little, I have hated going to the dentist. I even bit my dentist in Hamilton once (which later led to an altercation between he and my father; don’t worry, no fists were flung) and since then I have never liked going to the dentist. True, its probably because at one point I had 13 cavities (what, you mean brushing with Jack doesn’t kill bacteria? Ke$ha lied!) and every time I saw the dentist they made my gums bleed.

Now, however, I actually enjoy going to the dentist. Mostly because they give me the laughing gas and its like I’m on a mini-vacation, but still! It works for me and it gets my teeth clean. And not only that, but the dentist I go to now has Netflix. Three of my favorite things: a comfortable chair that reclines, mild sedatives, and television on demand. Can’t. Beat. That.

Fan Girl Thursday

Happy Thursday, fan peeps!

I’ve got something planned for tomorrow, so you’re getting your weekly does of fandom a little early! And OMG, I’ve got TONS to share with you!

Think Geek is going to be getting A LOT of money from me very soon. Check out this Weeble-inspired mug! It suctions to the table (or wherever you place it), it weebles, it wobbles, but it won’t fall down (or spill!).

Finally, a mug that can hold up to the likes of Messy Jessie.

Are you a total film geek? Then TG has the lounge-gear for you! Look at these adorable movie-inspired pillows:

Just don't eat them!

I cannot wait for my little Hermione to get here. I’ll teach her so many things: the art of sarcasm, the proper way to deliver one-liners, and oh yes…the awesomeness that is Grumpy Cat:

Grumpy Baby.

Grumpy Baby.

 

Bless me hobbit feet! Have you seen the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug?! I literally squealed out loud and hopped around like a dwarf that just found the Arkenstone.

 

And speaking of The Hobbit, check out this awesome hobbit-themed party I saw on Epbot:

No admittance. Except on party business.

Fan Girl Friday

Man. Its been a week.

After what happened Monday in Boston, the massive manhunt going on today, the explosion in Texas, and what we Okies are remembering today…It can make you feel really down. I think we could all use some geek-tastic giggles to get us through to the weekend.

First up, is a delicious find from The Little Pink Blog! Its a Harry Potter-inspired cocktail! This blog has many Potter potions that will help you ring in the weekend!

Its happy hour at Hogwarts!

Its happy hour at Hogwarts!

 

Alright, Fan Girls, hold on to your fezzes! Look at one of the press photos just released from the set of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special!

Cannot. Stop. Smiling.

Cannot. Stop. Smiling.

I see many giggles and squeals in my future.

 

I can think of one person that will not likely be smiling…my favorite finicky feline. Check out the latest shirt from my peeps over at Think Geek!

"I hate this shirt."

“I hate this shirt.”

 

Guys. Get ready to have your mind blown.

You know Carson from Downton Abbey? Who am I kidding, of course you do! Well, did you know our favorite butler is married to Professor Umbridge?! Let’s hope she’s nicer to Carson than she was to her students.

"Repeat after me, Countess: 'I must not tell lies'."

“Repeat after me, Countess: ‘I must not tell lies’.”

 

And lastly, did anyone else see Harrison Ford on Jimmy Kimmel? If you didn’t, I have two words for you: You’re welcome.
