Happy First Day of September, AKA “Return to Hogwarts” Day! And seeing as how Platform 9 3/4 will be bustling with little witches and wizards getting ready to go back to school–as I’m sure your little geeklings have already–today’s FGF is all about back to school gear!

 

I feel like we have a TON of Tupperware in our house. So this microwaveable bento lunch box was practically made for us! PLUS, it features Totoro!

Need a way to calculate how many blocks it will take to build that Lego Death Star? I got chu. Or, should I say, Perpetual Kid’s got chu.

Happy Friday, all! Am I the only one that woke up suddenly on Wednesday morning and thought, “HOLY CRAP, FATHER’S DAY IS THIS SUNDAY?!”

Have no fear! I’ve got a list of awesome gifts you can snag for your dad, grandpa, or hubs!

 

Is your dad a handy guy but never seems to have a pen? Check out these awesome writing tools (see what I did there?) from Think Geek!

Writing Tools

This 4-pack of pens shaped like a crowbar, saw, pliers, and boxcutter are great for the DIY dad!

 

Sometimes its hard for a guy to find a lunchbox that fits his needs as well as looks cool. Perpetual Kid has JUST the thing!

This toolbox-inspired cooler holds a 12-pack of Dad’s favorite beverage and keeps them cold for HOURS! Your pops can spend a day out on the lake fishing without ever having to go back to shore! #DadWin

 

Is your dad the type who touts Ron Swanson as his spirit animal? If so, he needs a pair of these:

I actually might get a pair to flash at those pesky, incessant kiosk workers at the mall!

 

Got a geek dad that also likes to build–maybe an AT-AT playhouse for the kiddos? He’ll need an awesome tape measure to get that walker built!

Exclusively from Think Geek, this R2D2 tape measure cannot be found at your local Home Depot! Snag one while you can!

 

Happy Fangirling and Happy Father’s Day!

 

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.

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.
