Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Button

 

Sorry I was MIA last week. This whole “preppring-to-leave-my-job-of-five-years” thing has been a little crazy! But I’m back! And OMSquee, you guys, I’ve got SO much to tell you!

First, can we just take a moment to lament the fact that we missed San Diego Comic Con?! UGH! I want to go back SO. FRAKKING. BAD. Especially after seeing this A-DORK-ABLE video the folks over at The Nerdist made!

 

I should have been there! Waaahhh! *Sniff* Okay, moving on.

Y’all, I really think Sherlock fans are some of the best people in the world. Not only because we love a guy with a ridiculous name, but also because we have to wait YEARS in between seasons. So quit your whining, Game of Thrones fans! We know what REAL torture is! And the teaser for the next season of our favorite sleuth just hit the web, making us a tad bit impatient for next year!

So is Moriarty REALLY back? Why is Mrs. Hudson so mad? Will Holmes keep the beard?! These are pressing matters we need answers to STAT.

 

I kind of feel awkward telling you this next bit of news. See, I only read the fir,st two books of the Divergent series. I don’t even remember seeing the second movie! I also didn’t know that the final book was split into two movies! The final movie is called:

ascendant

Now, for those of you wanting to see it on the big screen, bad news. According to MoviePilot.com, the last film will be released as a TV movie! This is pretty shocking to me! I thought this franchise was pretty successful. Though everyone I know that’s read the final book HATED it. So. Maybe not? What are your thoughts on this?

 

NASA has been in the news a lot lately, what with the whole Juno entering Jupiter’s orbit and the mission to Mars. And, because NASA is filled with fandom-loving folks such as us (you know, but with doctorates and super smarts) they recently released photos of their new mission patches!

You’re not seeing things; that IS Rocket Raccoon and Groot! According to The Nerdist, NASA hope this will get the general population more interested in what they’re doing:

“The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) is hoping that putting these characters one their uniforms will help draw eyes to the International Space Station and to their mission in general.”

Here’s hoping they come out with a “NASA Astronaut Awesome Mix Vol. 1” for the mission as well!

Happy Fourth of July, fangirls and boys! Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I spent the entire day painting a room for two little kids that I think will be SUPER surprised when they finally arrive in Oklahoma! I can’t give you specifics because its supposed to be a surprise, but when they get here, I’ll post some pics!

 

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to find more ways to go green. We use cloth diapers, we use cloth napkins, and I’m trying to convince my sister to utilize the compost area in her backyard. But I think I found a super-easy way to conserve! Check out these pencils!

When you’re done with the pencils, just pop them in the planter and watch your plants grow! You can choose from herbs, spices, or veggies!

 

 

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters in just a little bit less than a month. And, if you just can’t wait to get your hands on some GotG swag, ThinkGeek has you covered!

These figurines are amazingly detailed and AWESOME! I really want the Groot one. He reminds me of Treebeard.

 

 

Even though I took a photography class in high school and college, I’m no photographer. If it goes beyond “point and click” I’m a novice. So photographer friends, rejoice! There’s a light meter attachment (does anyone even know what a light meter does?) for your iPhone!

Just snap it on top, download the app, and BAM! You’re ready for a photo shoot!

 

Looking for a gift for someone that seems to have everything? ModCloth has you covered. It’s a Name a Star Gift Set!

It comes with everything you need to document the name of your individual star! Now that’s a present that’s out of this world!

 

 

 

 

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! And be safe–remember, Roman Candles are not meant to be held.
