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!

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!

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!

 

Try It Tuesday

Hello all!

This week’s Try It is actually a two-for!

A few weeks ago, my sister-in-law gave me some maternity clothes. And me being me, I got greasy food on one of the tops I really liked. After I washed it, the stain was still there. Bah! I thought all was lost. Then I came across this on Pinterest:

I can?!

I can?!

I needed to do laundry anyway, so I got the shirt and dropped some Dawn on the stains. (I was going to take a picture of the stains, but they weren’t showing up well in the pictures. But trust me, they’re there!)

Messy Jessie strikes again!

Messy Jessie strikes again!

 

I let it set for about 10 minutes and then tossed it in the washer with the rest of my laundry. Forty minutes later, it came out stain free! Woot woot! I am so excited! Now I can be as messy as I want!

 

The next Try It was something I saw a while back and was a little reluctant to try. Simply because I was super nauseous when I pinned it and I didn’t want eggs of any fashion. Now that the first trimester is done, I figured I should try it out! Here’s the pin:

Its a golden egg!

Its a golden egg!

Evidently, all you have to do is shake up an egg before you hard boil it and it comes out looking like this! At least, I think that’s what the source blog said…I don’t understand Swedish.

Anywhoo, I decided to give it a go. I started with my egg:

She chose me!

She chose me!

 

And then I shook it up until it looked like this:

Help...me...

Help…me…

Then, I boiled it for about 10 minutes or so. After I let it cool, I tore off the shell. Literally. I was really excited to see if the egg was in fact yellow!

It wasn’t:

Womp, womp.

Womp, womp.

 

So yeah…The Swedes lie. Shaking your egg for a long time will not make it all golden yellow. This Try It? Fail.
