Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday WallE

 

Hey y’all! Its been a hot minute since I’ve done a Fan Girl Friday and I thought your sweet little nerd hearts have been pining away for some geeky goodies so I’m back! These nerdy nifties are sure to get you back into my good graces so let’s dive in!

 

Personally, I’m an extrovert. I like being in a group (most of the time) and feel at ease with a lot of folks. However, I know not everyone is like me and I have a lot of peeps in my life that are perfectly content to just stay at home with a good book. Looks like I’ll be buying these socks from Perpetual Kid for them for Christmas!

My brother-in-law is a connoisseur of board games. Seriously. I don’t even know how many the man has but I’m fairly certain its in the triple digits. Anyway, he brought over a game and I loved it so much, I bought it! And now they have a Marvel edition!

marvel codenames

Here’s what Hot Topic says about game play: “The Marvel Edition of Codenames combines the hit social word game with the Marvel Universe including Spider Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers and Doctor Strange. Two Cluemasters on opposing teams, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, give one-word clues to help their teammates be the first to identify all of their team’s field agents from the 25 cards displayed in a 5 x 5 grid.” Seriously, you guys. This game is SO MUCH fun!

 

And speaking of board games, I think I’ve finally found a game in which I will totally beat the pants off of everyone! Four words: HARRY. POTTER. TRIVIAL. PURSUIT.

According to Think Geek, the different categories are: Slytherin House, Death Eaters and The Dark Arts; Objects & Artifacts; Animals, Magical Creatures and Magical Beings; Witches, Wizards, Ghosts and Muggles; Hogwarts, Other Locations and Transportation; and Spells, Potions and Other Magic. The game also comes with four game pieces, each one representing the different Houses of Hogwarts! *cue fangirl scream*

 

Y’all, I’m not going to lie, I totally squealed when I saw this t-shirt! I have been wanting a shirt like this ever since The Fellowship of the Ring came out!

door shierrt

This Hot Topic online exclusive tee features the Doors of Durin and the phrase, “Speak friends, and enter” (just like mine and Huff the Hubs’ welcome mat!). *immediately orders shirt*

 

Happy fangirling!

 

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background3

It’s Frrriiiiiiddddaaayyy! Another end to another workweek! And what better way to start it off than with some geeky goodies?!

Would you rather spend your weekend wrapped up in a Snuggie, binge-watching season two of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix than out at a club? (Who wouldn’t? That sounds AWESOME!) Then I’ve got the soap for you, friend!
FGF 4-15-16 Introvert SoapWhiskey River Soap has an unscented soap made just for introverts! Their selection is catered to everyone: they have Soap for Awkward Moments (like running into someone at the grocery store), Soap For Bad Hair Decades (basically me throughout the 90’s), and Caf+Fiend (coffee-scented soap to help you get through those morning meetings!)!

 

ThinkGeek has a special place in my nerdy heart. But now, my affection for them has grown even more! In an effort to bring awareness to autism, TG is selling these Neurodiversity tees:

FGF 4-15-16 Nerodiversity Shirt

According to their site: “Until the end of April of 2016, 100% of the proceeds from this shirt (after April $1 a shirt) will be donated to ASAN, The Autistic Self Advocacy Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for Autistic people. Their mission statement:

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which Autistic people enjoy the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. We work to empower Autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community, and seek to organize the Autistic community to ensure our voices are heard in the national conversation about us. Nothing About Us, Without Us!”

Awesome, right?! Go get your shirt now!

 

And, while you’re there, pick up a little something for the snazzily-dressed little hero in your life!

FGF 4-15-16 Kids Avengers TieSeriously, how precious is this kids’ Avengers tie?!

This week, the cast of Sherlock posted behind-the-scenes pics of season 4! Can’t wait to get your Cumberbatch fill until then? Fear not! The Dr. Strange trailer hit the web this week with our favorite British baratone!

SQUEEEE!!!!

Happy Friday, fangirls and fanboys! I’ve found the latest geeky goodies and compiled them all onto a list just for you!

 

Y’all, today is the today we’ve all been waiting for! Well, I’ve been waiting for anyway. Marvel’s Jessica Jones drops on Netflix!

Fan Girl Friday Jessica Jones

I’ve already watched the first episode and I like it! Jessica is a tough-talking, booze swilling, semi-hard boiled PI with a dark past. She’s not your typical Marvel heroine, but I like that she’s a bit gritty. I didn’t think I’d be able to accept Krysten Ritter as a tough chick, given that most of the roles I’ve seen her in she plays the earthy best friend or the vapid neighbor. But, I think she’ll do great with this! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that my favorite Doctor is in it as well! Though, he’s not as sweet as his Gallifreyan alter ego.

 

Looking for a fun gift for your Secret Santa? Check out these clever coins from Perpetual Kid!

Fan GIrl Friday Seed Money

They’re called “Seed Money”. What you do is you plant the paper coins and they grow into pretty flowers! Pennies bloom as delicate wildflowers, nickels become herbs, dimes turn into crunchy root crops, and quarters grow to become crispy fresh salad greens!

 

This week, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hit theaters. And, from what I have heard from critics and friends, this is the BEST Hunger Games film yet! I am so excited to see it! I’m also excited about all of the merch that’s hitting the stores. Like this adorable Katniss from Vinyl Pop!

Fan GIrl Friday Katniss

You can get your very own Katniss at Hot Topic stores!

 

 

In just a little over a month, we will all be going to a galaxy far, far away! Its time to stock up on all of the Star Wars swag while you can! Like this darling droid lamp from Think Geek!

Fan Girl Friday BB8

This cute little lamp has three settings: on, off, and dim and will add Jedi charm to any room!

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday! WOO! I am so glad that the weekend is FINALLY here! Oh wait, I’m a mom. I don’t get weekends. C’est la vie! But at least I found some kick-a nerdy nifties to make my geek heart glad!

 

This week, the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel was released online. I love watching these! It makes my heart happy to see my favorite super heroes screwing up their lines and being silly!

 

And speaking of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, two of our favorite Avengers made an appearance at Salt Lake City’s Comic Con this past week and were part of a very sweet surprise:

Fan Girl Friday Captain America Proposal

The girl in the photo, Kelsey Jenkins, was just as surprised as Chris Evans and Hailey Atwell at her boyfriend’s proposal! Actually, I think Hailey’s reaction shows that she was the most surprised, lol! Click here for more of the cute cosplayer’s story!

 

I’m on a Marvel roll right now, y’all! Might as well keep it going, huh? We got an awesome sneak peek this week for Netflix’s original series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones hitting the subscription service in late November! Check it out:

This girl looks like a total BAMF and I cannot wait to watch her kick butt and take names! Well, that and the fact that David Tennant will also be starring *swoon*.

 

Need a low-key, yet stylish costume for Halloween? Then look no further than this adorable Black Widow dress from ThinkGeek!

Iiiiiiiiiittttttttttttt’s Friday! Time to pour some iced tea, put up your feet, and binge-watch some Outlander! But before you start your chillaxing weekend, take a gander at theses geeky goodies!

Its still blazing hot in Oklahoma, but it’ll be sweater weather before you know it! And what better way to stay warm—while looking cool—than with these Star Trek: The Next Generation cardigans?!

Star Trek Cardigans

Exclusively from Think Geek, these unisex, button-up beauties come in three colors: Sciences Blue, Commander Red, and Operations Gold!

Got a tiny tike that is not feeling the whole “potty-training” thing? Have no fear, there’s help from the smartest Vulcan around!

Potty Training is Logical

This book, Pooping is Logical, is sadly not out in stores yet, but that’s where WE come in! The authors, Gary and Leah Whitta, need our help in flooding the powers that be to give them official Star Trek licensing! I know we can do it! If we can get Roswell and Chuck back on the air for a farewell season, then nerd parents can surely see this book hit the shelves and, hopefully, help them not go crazy when potty training their little Vulcan! Click here for more info!

If you’re like me (and, well, most of America) you’re constantly on your phone. Which equals a dying battery. Which equals a Darth-like moment of screaming, “NOOOOOO!!!” when you see your screen go black. Don’t worry; the dark-helmeted villain is here to help!

Darth Vader USB car charger

This Vader USB car charger is sure to keep your phone or device charged and ready to go so you can beat your high score of Flappy Bird while waiting for your order in the drive-thru!

There are so many awesome movies coming out soon and, thankfully, many of them are in the Marvel universe! I just can’t get enough of those heroes. A new trailer has hit the web, and I can honestly say I know NOTHING about this character. I know, I need my Geek Card revoked. Have y’all seen the Deadpool trailer? It looks awesome! Check it out:

(Update: A follower of the blog let me know that the trailer has A LOT of NSFW language. To see the cleaner trailer, click here. For some reason, IMDB won’t let you embed their trailers. Womp, womp.)

Happy fangirling!

Y’all summer is just flyyyyyying by! But, thankfully, its been stuffed to the brim of nerdy novelties to keep your summer geektastic!

I’m a big fan of the Hawaiian shirt. This shirt, however, I am HUGE fan of! Check it out!;

hawaiian storm trooper shirt

I wish the new Stars Wars was coming out this summer because I would totes get this for Huff the Hubs to wear to the premiere! You can only get it at Think Geek!

 

My mom is an avid crocheter. The woman could crochet anything and I think I’ve found her next project!

mario crocheted blanket

Computer programmer, Kjetil Nordin from Norway spent six years crocheting this Super Mario Brothers 3 World 1 Map! Isn’t it amazing?! Read more of his story here!

 

One important rule of summer–besides eating as many snow cones as you can before the fall comes–is taking care of your skin in the summer sun! And I’ve got a hilariously healthy way to do it!

will ferrell sun tan lotionOh yes, that is THE Will Ferrell on that bottle of sunscreen! Not only is this sunscreen free of harmful stuff and packaged in the most hilarious way possible, but his sunscreen does good for others! The proceeds from each sale help Will Ferrell’s benefit, Cancer for College, a group that provides scholarships for cancer survivors!

 

Well, we’re mid-way through the year…How’s it going with those New Year Resolutions? Workouts got you down? Not to worry, Flex Design Body Suits are here to help! They can give you super hero-like suits without all the work!

body suits give you muscles

The suit comes in 24 different colors so you can become any superhero you want! They’re a bit pricey–$700 for the cheapest one–but you’ll definitely be the most ripped person at Comic Con!

 

Happy fangirling!

It’s finally here, y’all—Friday is back to grace us with its beautiful presence! Holla! And to commemorate this blessed occasion, I’ve collected all kinds of geeky goodies for your pleasure!

 

Need to protect your belongings? Look no further than this exclusive from Think Geek!

Captain America Backpack

This Captain America-inspire backpack is great for holding all of your stuff that you don’t want falling into Hydra’s hands!

 

If you’re like Huff the Hubs, you enjoy birthday cards…for about ten seconds. He finds them kind of pointless because they “don’t serve a purpose”. But I think if he received one of these he’d LOVE cards!

DIY Cards

Each wooden card comes with pieces to pop out and construct! The cards come in three different robot shapes!

 

I am really looking forward to summer. I’m about sick and tired of the May rains we’re experiencing in Oklahoma. I also love food. So this next find warms my heart:

pizza slice pool float

Lounge whilst dreaming of tasty pizza! Best of both worlds, baby!

 

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Troll dolls. Seriously. I had a collection! (Wow, I was weird kid…) That’s why I need about ten pairs of these adorkable shoes from ModCloth:

troll flats

Trollies may come from acorns, but these shoes are from the nerdy heavens!

 

Get ready, people, because I’m about to drop some nerd news that’s going to make you flip! Nintendo announced this week that it will be working with Universal Studios to bring the world of Mario to its theme parks!

nintendo theme park

That’s right, people! In a matter of months you could be racing on Rainbow Road or searching for Zelda alongside Link at Universal Studios in Orlando! Its still up in the air what the final plans are/where the Nintendo area of Universal will be, but, rumor is they’ll be taking up the area that formerly held Marvel’s superheroes (because Marvel was bought by Disney, Wolverine and his pals will probably be high-tailing it Cinderlla’s castle soon). Get excited! (Note: the link to the story has NSFW language!)
