Fan Girl Friday

Its Friday, peeps! And we are in the homestretch in the countdown to Christmas. The big day is in less than TWO weeks! TWO WEEKS!

Do you have your shopping done? No?!

Well, have no fear! I am here to help you find the perfect gift for that special someone on your list!

For the Teacher:

Crayon Cologne. Doesn’t every teacher just love the smells of school? Freshly sharpened pencils, sweaty kids piling in from recess, and ah yes, broken Crayolas!

This eau de school supplies is only $19.99 from Perpetual Kid! And if this scent doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s others! Lobster, graham crackers, birthday cake, and popcorn just to name a few!

 

For the Hostess:

Party Plates! Also from PK, these plates are perfect for the friend in your life that just won’t stop throwing parties! “Wanna come celebrate my cat’s bar mitzvah? There’ll be food!”

The plates come in a variety of colors and sets of 5! They’re perfect for stabilizing food and drink (and it even has a separate area to put moist foods for any OCD party-goers!)

 

For the Whovian:

Sonic salad forks (and spoons and knives)!

DW cutlery

 

These awesome cutlery sets from Think Geek would be a great addition to your Whovian pal’s table setting! They’re great for digging into fish fingers and custard!

 

I’ll have more gift ideas next week, but I’ll end on some movie news! JJ Abrams has FINALLY released the names of his characters (besides the obvious) for Star Wars Episode 7!

Here are the names of some of the main characters:

 

What do you think? Like the names? I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed. Rey and Finn aren’t that..”sci-fi-ish” I was hoping for something along the lines of Lando or Ackbar.

Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttssssssssssss Friday!

 

Time to kick back; drink a cold glass of Diet A&W® and binge-watch Sherlock on Netflix.

 

But, before the chillaxing begins, take a gander at these delightfully dorky treasures I’ve track down from the web!

 

San Diego Comic Con was almost a month ago, but I’m still finding out some awesome things that happened at the convention! Like this!

Lee Pace

Lee Pace totally photobombed sleeping fans that were camped out outside of Hall H! Click the link for more amazing things you may have missed from this year’s SDCC!

 

JJ Abrams is pretty much my favorite director. Not just because of his ability to breathe new life into old franchises, but also because he keeps tweeting/leaking photos from the new Star Wars flick! Check out Han Solo’s new costume!

Harrison Ford

What do you think? It really reminds me of a certain space cowboy

 

And speaking of space, look at this AMAZING space-themed room a dad made for his son! Complete with rocket!

 

This week, the world lost one of the greatest comedians in the history of comedy, Robin Williams. The tributes have been pouring in. They’re all very touching, however I think this one is the best. The cast of Broadyway’s Aladdin paid a musical tribute to him onstage after one of their shows. Take a look:

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiiiittttssssss Friday!

And I have scoured the globe (and by globe, I mean internet) and collected the most interesting and intriguing dorky delights to start your weekend off with a bang!

 

The Lego Movie comes out on DVD Tuesday, June 17th! After you head to the store to pick up your copy, pack a lunch in this bad boy and have a movie picnic date with your sweetie!

"Every lunch is awesome!"

“Every lunch is awesome!”

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously jonesing for some Walking Dead. I’m super sad that we have to wait almost 4 months for it to come back on! And I’m a little terrified that some of my favorite characters may get the Game of Thrones treatment this season. I think I might send a picture of me drinking out of this mug to the producers, just to let them know I mean business.

daryl dies mug

Seriously.

 

Speaking of GoT, George R. R. Martin has an interesting proposal for you. He is currently raising money for two of his favorite charities, The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, and has made it enticing for YOU to help out!

"Donate or Tyrion gets it."

“Donate or Tyrion gets it.”

If you donate, you are entered to win a bevvy of prizes! Including a helicopter ride with the author at the wolf sanctuary! Give what you can–every bit helps!

 

A few months ago, Huff the Hubs and I were talking about what else–Legos–and discussing how excited we were for Hermione to be old enough to play with them. Then I said, “I wish I could work on the development team….They should make a famous female scientist set of Legos.” So while I was perusing Pinterest the other day, guess what I found? THAT’S RIGHT! My idea! Well, sort of.

"Science girls are awesome!"

“Science girls are awesome!”

Lego will be releasing three different sets of female scientists–an astronomer, a paleontologist, and a chemist–this August! I am so. freaking. excited.

 

And finally, hungry for more Star Wars: Episode VII news? JJ Abrams, that sneaky little sneak, has been posting set pictures on his Twitter account, debunking rumors about a certain ship.

"You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"

“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?”

I ain’t buying it, JJ.

 

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, peeps! And what an awesome Friday it is. Not only does this kick off an incredible 3-day weekend BUT Sunday is Geek Pride Day! That’s right people, much like Star Wars Day a few weeks ago, GPD is a day to let your fandom flag fly!

 

Need some ways to celebrate? Have no fear, The Huffman Post is here!

 

You can create the geeky ambiance for you and your Player Two with these fantastically fandom fragranced candles from Etsy shop Frostbeard!

"Rolling hills, sunflowers, and hairy feet."

“Rolling hills, sunflowers, and hairy feet.”

They have all kinds: The Shire, Dumbledore’s Office, and even Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey!

 

It’s that time of year again, the time when our mailboxes are full of wedding invitations and, oh yes, graduation announcements. Need something for the geeky grad in your life? Think Geek has just the thing!

 

"I want your brrraaaiiiinnnsss! But only if you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher!"

“I want your brrraaaiiiinnnsss! But only if you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher!”

 

Got a little padawan that’s celebrating their very first Geek Pride Day? Check out these adorable superhero socks for your pint-sized crime fighter!

Guys. Get excited. I have more Batman vs. Superman movie news! The official title has FINALLY been released! The title of the movie is {drumroll please}: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

AND there’s a shot of Ben Affleck as the new Batman!

Did you know that Geek Pride Day was originally supposed to pay homage to the release of Star Wars but shares the date with two other fandom holidays—Towel Day (for Hitchhiker fans) and The Glorious 25th of May (for Discworld fans)? Because there was so much geekdom in one day, it morphed into GPD!And to celebrate the origins, JJ Abrams created a contest that could possibly get YOU on the set of the new Star Wars flick while also helping out UNICEF! Seriously!

You’d be doing good and increasing your chances of meeting Han Solo! If chosen, you would shoot a scene for the movie, be Abrams’ VIP guest on the set in London, and even bring a pal with you! Click the link for more!

In a Movie Theater Far, Far Away…

*Cue the fangirl/fanboy squeals*

The cast has FINALLY been announced for J.J. Abram’s newest installment of the Star Wars saga!

And here they are:

1398790698000-star-wars-episode-7-cast-announce

Look! Even R2D2 is there!

Can’t tell who everyone is? No problem; I’m here to help!

The the original cast members (or as I like to call them: The Jedi Trinity) are BACK! That’s right, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher have all signed on to reprise their roles from the original (and, in this blogger’s opinion, the BEST) 1970’s films! But who are the rest of these young whippersnappers? Glad you asked!

 

Domhnall Gleeson

Neither Dementor nor Storm Trooper scare me.

Neither Dementor nor Storm Trooper scare me.

Dom, AKA Bill Weasley, will be turning in his wand for a lightsaber come December 2015! IMDB doesn’t list his character’s name, but my guess is he is either the spawn of Han and Leia or one of Luke’s littles.

 

Adam Driver

Look out Girls!

Look out Girls!

Best known for his role on HBO’s Girls and Inside Llewyn Davis, its unclear who Driver will be playing as well. Although, he really reminds me of a younger, less crazy-eyed Peter Mayhew. Maybe he’s one of Chewbacca’s pups…?

 

Oscar Isaac

MV5BMTQ2ODE2NDQ5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTU3OTM1OQ@@__V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_AL_

Another Llewyn Davis alum, Isaac hasn’t been in too many projects. I’m hoping this is a good thing. Although Hayden Christensen was a relative unknown when he was in Star Wars and we all know how THAT turned out…

 

Daisy Ridley

MV5BNTI0NTA4Njg1Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTA5Mzc2MTE@__V1_SY317_CR69,0,214,317_AL_

This cute-as-a-button brunette is just about as adorable as her name. But, I feel as though there’s some fierceness behind those baby brown’s. Maybe she’s a little Leia…? Ridley has only has about 6 or 7 acting projects under her belt, but something tells me that Star Wars is going to catapult her to stardom.

 

What do you think about the casting choices? Like them? Don’t like them? Have any guesses as to who they might be playing? Honestly, I think the actors could stink and this movie would still be awesome. Mostly because J.J. Abram’s is driving this Falcon and that guy knows his way around a galaxy! No disrespect to George Lucas, but I’m still a little bitter about the whole “remastering” thing…and I don’t think I’m alone in this:
