Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Marvel

 

Happy Friday, peeps! I’ve rounded up some nerdy nifties to get your weekend started right! And–added bonus–today’s FGF is chock full of 90’s nostalgia!

If you were like me in elementary school, you yearned for the days that the book fair came to town. Because then, you could buy up all the new Goosebumps books (especially those awesome “choose your own adventure” ones) so your weekends would be set. Ever wish you could be in that world? We’re one step closer with this:

jvgh_goosebumps_board_game

The game, for 2-6 players, lets YOU be the monsters from R.L. Stine’s creepy books competing to make it to the end of Madison Street and evading the author himself!

 

Miss the good ole days before mortgages and water bills? The days when you dreamed about sipping Shasta on the beach with JTT? Bring those daydreams home with this whimsical pillow from Etsy shop Dirtsastudio:

Even if you didn’t get that mansion like the game promised, at least your living room will be awesome!

 

Anyone else excited for the reboot of Rocko’s Modern Life? I’m just desperate for a day-long binge of my fave Nickelodeon shows from the 90’s! In the meantime, I can grab these cute Vinyl Pops from Think Geek!

I mean, come on. Look at the adorable Tommy Pickles! Squeeeee!

 

And speaking of our favorite diapered dude, this Rugrats-inspired top from FreeBirdApparelUK is AMAZE-BALLS!

Just don’t be a total Angelica while you’re wearing it, mmmkay?

 

Happy fangirling!

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!

iuqm_sw_r2d2_tape_measure

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!

Ah, Friday. Such a glorious day! And this one is even better because its part of a three-day weekend! Woot, woot! And I have exactly what you need to get your summer season started off right!

 

Thinking about hanging outside, watching the hunky pool boy? Wait, you don’t have a hunky pool boy? No worries, Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Hunky Pool Boy Floatie

Toss this good lookin’ fella in the pool and he’ll carry you around like the diva you are in his bulky arms!

 

Want to just catch some sun while also showing your nerdy side? Grab one of these circuit board swimsuits from Think Geek!

Circuit Board Swimsuit

One of the best things about this (besides its super comfortable and modest design) is that the binary coding on it spells “Love”! D’awww…

 

Maybe you don’t want to go out and instead, you want to have a weekend in! Your pals will definitely thank you for being a friend when you invite them over to play Golden Girls Clue!

Golden Girls Clue

According to ToyWiz.com, this specialty version of Clue “features a custom illustrated game board, where players attempt to solve the crime of WHO ate the last piece cheesecake, WHAT they left at the scene of the crime, and WHICH room they did it in.” When in doubt, blame Blanche!

 

Or, maybe, you’d rather use this extra-long weekend to just get away from people and spend some time with your fur babies. Why not spoil them with some nerdy cardboard houses from CacaoPets!

cardboard cat box

These amazing creations come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including the TARDIS, an Imperial Stormtrooper, and even a tank! They’re easy to assemble–no glue required! You’d better order one right meow!

 

Happy fangirling!

Hallelujah, it’s Friday! And payday! And Cinco de Mayo (hooray for half-priced tacos)! And not only that, but its only 9 days until Mother’s Day! What? You haven’t gone shopping yet?! Not to worry, I’ve got a gaggle of geeky goodies for the great gal in your life!

 

There are many times I have to correct people who say I’m bossy with, “Its not ‘bossy’; its leadership skills.” Got a momma like that? Grab a pair of these mitts from Perpetual Kid!

There’s also one for your more intimidating madre as well as the bookworm babe!

 

Got a whimsical woman who always likes to look her best? Look no further than this unicorn nail polish dryer!

Unicorn-Nail-Dryer__73480.1493244952.1280.1280

Nails fly and dry in 5 minutes flat! No risk of messing up her mani while she chugs a uni-frap!

 

If you’re a mom of littles, you’re constantly carrying around a ton of crap. Seriously. Between snacks, diapers, wipes, and crayons, I need an enormous bag to carry it all in! Thank goodness ThinkGeek has my nerdy back with this!

This canvas “Motherboard” bag is perfect for carrying all of your spawn’s stuff as well as looking geek chic!

 

Is your mom ready to soak up the sun while also representing Star Fleet? Pick her up one of these!

Happy Friday, y’all! It seems like an eternity since I’ve done a Fan Girl Friday and I am soooooo excited about it! Let’s dive right in!

 

Some days, adulting is hard. Whether you’re a stay-at-home-momma that needs a little something to take the edge off or an up-and-comer at your company, we could all use a little pick-me-up at the end of a long day. And what better way to knock one back than in this trophy wine glass!

Sure its not one of the participation awards that so many have gotten in the past, but it will still give you that sense of accomplishment when you’re sipping chardonnay!

 

Ever since seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I have been OBSESSED with the adorable little creature that Newt carries around with him–a niffler! Now I can wear the cutie-patootie around my neck!

I guarantee if you wear this to your next night on the town, you will definitely be the brightest star of the bunch! Hey-oh! 

 

My family and I proudly proclaim that we speak fluently in movie quotes. I feel like this next game was made for folks like us! Meet Schmovie, your favorite new board game!

jqjq_schmovie_game_of_madeup_movies

According to the website, the object of Schmovie is: “…trying to convince the other players that your title is the best of the bunch for whatever concept is being pitched to the producer(s). We’re not asking for a full script here – just a working title. Bad puns are highly encouraged! Each round you’ll roll the genre dice (sci-fi, rom-com, horror, action, drama, and producer’s choice), and then draw two premise cards – one ‘What?’ and one ‘Who?’ The combination of those cards give you the movie you’re trying to pitch. If your movie gets the greenlight then you’ll win a shquid trophy. Win enough trophies and you win the game. Easy, right?”
