Fan Girl Friday Marvel

 

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday! Woot, woot! Let me tell ya, I’m super glad that this day is over! Let’s dive right in the gloriously geeky goodies I’ve found for you!

 

We are all goddesses, right? Now you can show just how much of a goddess you are with this awesome Thor-inspired wristlet from Think Geek!

Cute enough to go with any outfit and big enough to hold all your crime-fighting essentials!

 

The Tenth Doctor may be long forgotten to some Whovians but not to this girl! Ten will always be my favorite which means I need to add this next find to my Christmas list!

Seriously, how adorable is this?! Not only will I love it, but I’m hoping my little nerdlings will love it too!

 

Speaking of Christmas, the holiday season is upon us and that means parties will be filling up your weekends! Want the man in your life to look dapper while also sporting his nerd-side? Look no further!

This suit is guaranteed to to turn heads! The jacket and pants are emblazoned with the face of none other than Darth Vader and accented with red buttons and lining around the pockets. Force couture at its best!

 

Everyone likes to get mail, right? Well, actually, that depends on the type of mail. Bills? Not so much. Cards and letters? YES! Send old school snail mail to your peeps with this lovely Jane Austen-inspired stationery set!

Happy Friday, Earthlings!

This morning I was woken up by the Great God of Thunder, Thor himself. My windows were rattling and rain pounded against the apartment. This was all at 4:30 a..m. I’m assuming the hammer-wielding son of Odon was just passing through, but I was unable to go back to bed. I contemplated not doing a blog today but I know millions dozens of you would be heartbroken if I didn’t post. So, here I am!

Is anyone else on Sherlock countdown?! I. CANNOT. WAIT for season 3! Rumor is, the show will debut first this fall in the UK and probably January-ish 2014 for us in ‘Merica. To satiate your need for all things Benedict Cumberbatch/Holmes, check out this awesome video of BC reading a little of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s awsomeness:

We have SO many movies/TV shows to look forward to this fall and winter! Including the next Hobbit movie! If you just can’t wait and need to have your fill of something Hobbit-related {whilst improving your spelling abilities} check out this bad boy from Think Geek!

Scrabble, Shire-style.

It also comes with “adventure cards” to shake up the game play! Its like Catan meets Scrabble!

If you know me/have spent five minutes around me, you know I hate noise. Some say I’m just a crabby patty, others say I suffer from Misophonia. I say I just don’t have the patience to deal with your loud voice/annoying noise-related quirks. Evidently I’m in a world of hurt when the baby gets here. (Did you know they cry? Like, all the time?!) So when I saw this pacifier from TG, I rejoiced! I think I may get one for Hermione. I wonder if it really works…..?

Just don't turn it to 11.

Just don’t turn it to 11.

And speaking of my soon-to-arrive-spawn… Sigh. It seems a day can’t go by without people getting all judgy/having something to say about the fact that we’re naming our daughter Hermione or that we’re doing her nursery in Star WarsThe reaction I hate the most is: “Star Wars? For a girl?” Bah. That makes me want to choke them with The Force and drop them on Hoth for a wampa to deal with. But this week, while perusing Pinterest, I found this awesome video. Which, made me even more proud of the decisions Huff the Hubs and I are making in regards to our little one, but it also made me tear up a little. My favorite quote? “Don’t tell my daughters that Legos, robots, and superheroes are just for boys.”

Happy Friday, kids!

 

If you’re one of the lucky 200,000 attendees at Comic Con today, I envy you. Even though you’re probably in a crowded room with people who haven’t showered in days, your afternoon will be filled with panels, free swag, and waiting in line for hours on end.

 

If you’re like me and sitting at home wishing you were able to sit in the same room as Chris Hemsworth Thor, we can cry on each other’s shoulders…OR we can look at all the awesomely geeky things I’ve found on the interwebs today!

 

Yes, let’s do that. We don’t want our mascara to run.

 

In Oklahoma, we don’t have beaches (well, I guess we do at the lake…but I don’t go to the lake; I don’t like swimming in places that aren’t infused with chlorine) but we sure do have swimming pools! And with the heat that’s cranking up over the south and east, we could use a dip in our cement ponds.

 

What better way to dry yourself off from an afternoon of Marco Polo than with this beach towel from Think Geek:

Remember the days of pouring your bucket of Legos on the living room floor and building an entire city? Perhaps you named it Jessie-opolis or Jessville. No? Just me? Moving on… then remember how your siblings would come through and trash your city. You’d sit in the corner and cry until you heard the piercing scream of someone stepping on a lone Lego. Ah, sweet justice. You don’t have to worry about hurting your Hobbit feet with these bricks, though:

Lego fun without the foot-crushing pain.

Miss the days of NES before things got fancy? Me too. We can relive our childhood as we pour our morning cup of Joe and lament the fact that now we’re adults with things like jobs and mortgages with this awesome Tetris mug:

Fill your mug to the brim, but don’t let the cubes get too high!

And finally, if you’re in need of geeky gear, look no further than Elf Sacks! Check out all of these nerdy accessories:
