Pre-Thankgiving Excitement: Sci-fi, Games, and Whales...

So, Thanksgiving is in a couple days, and I am super excited! I am seriously ready for turkey, stuffing, potatoes, et cetera. And although I will be home alone cooking for hours, I will definitely not be bored. My plan? Well, my boyfriend bought me Okamiden for my Nintendo DS, so there's that.

And most likely I will be hitting up Netflix. There are a whole bunch of shows on there that I want to catch up on, so that will keep me pretty occupied. I just recently started watching Farscape on there, which is a pretty amusing so far (and yes, kind of oldish now, haha).

Other than that, there is also my own brain around to keep me amused. Not to pat myself on the back, but I am pretty awesome at keeping myself amused. Big plus to being the dork that I am, haha. I draw random doodles and stuff most of the time. Sometimes I sing songs to the beat of random sounds happening in the house (Like the washer agitating clothes, or water dripping outside if it's raining).When I'm in the kitchen waiting for food to finish cooking, I make believe my oven mitts are whales. Seriously, they look like whales! Don't argue with me! Look at the picture!

Like I already said, I'm a bit of a dork. And maybe a little crazy. Although they say when you are crazy, you don't usually know you're crazy... so maybe I'm not, lol. Anyway, those are my ramblings for today, hope you enjoyed them. (^_^)

Thanks for reading, and please feel welcome to leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will almost always reply with something. (^_^)

Harry Potter Weekend? Heck Yes!

So my friends and I had a pretty awesome weekend. We have been planing this Harry Potter weekend for the past couple months or so, and we were SUPER excited that it was finally here. And I have to say, it did not disappoint! On Friday, my friend Heather and I made Harry Potter themed decorations to put up around my house. Then Friday/Saturday we made all sorts of Harry Potter themed food and drinks. All of this lead up to our two day Harry Potter DVD watching event on Saturday and Sunday! I swear, I felt like a little kid on Christmas waiting for Heather and my friend Ashley to show up, haha.

We ended up watching movies 5-8 only... and then it because Battlestar Galactica Weekend, which looking back is kind of funny considering the change from a series of kid-friendly movies to... well, a not so kid-friendly sci-fi show. But either way we had a fantastically fun and geeky weekend, and that all that really matters, right? Right?! haha.

So anywho, we took some photos of our HP decorations and food, so here they are!

Why yes, the Whomping Willow does reside in my front yard! (Sign made by Heather)
Platform nine and three-quarters sign that Heather made for my front door.
My living room, with the banners Heather and I made, and also Heather's Sorting Hat!

Leaky Cauldron sign that I made for the kitchen.
Pumpkin juice!! It was actually really yummy, and I am not a huge fan of pumpkin.
Tiny caldrons filled with "Berty Bott's Every Flavor Jelly Beans." (Actually, just Jelly Belly jelly beans, lol)
Chocolate Frogs! (They were awesome Heather!!!)
Delicious (and gluten free!) Cauldron Cupcakes.
Mrs Weasley's herby roasted chicken with onion-garlic mashed potatoes. (And stuffing! Don't forget stuffing!)
Love Potion! (Also yummy!)

Boredom + Trees + Camera = Collage

Took some photos of trees in my parents' backyard yesterday. I was bored today, so I decided to make a collage out of them. It looked pretty neat, so I thought I would share it with all of you. Enjoy! :-)

Happy Frakking Halloween!

Halloween is seriously the most geek friendly holiday ever, so it's no wonder that I love it so much! I mean, on what other day can you dress up as whoever or whatever you want, and not get funny looks from people? haha.

As usual, my boyfriend Dan and I dressed up in costumes, invited our friends over for a Halloween party, and passed out candy to trick-or-treaters (my favorite part!). And my friend Heather managed to get photos of me in costume; this was a major feat, as I was running with my head cut off making delicious food, lol.

Only Dan, Heather, and I wore costumes, which was kind of disappointing. But seeing the trick-or-treaters in their adorable costumes totally made up for it. Wish I could have taken photos of their costumes, but their parents probably would have thought I was a creeper if I had, lmao! But I do have a couple photos us to share at least! (^_^)

This is a photo of Dan wearing his costume yesterday (Oct. 30th) making omelettes for lunch. Who is he? He's Gordon flipping Ramsey! (Kitchen Nightmares, Hell's Kitchen, etc.)


Here is a slightly bad photo of me in my Temperance Brennen aka Bones (from the tv show Bones) costume. Seriously, what kind of face is that, haha. I'm a dork sometimes.

And last but definitely not least, the best TV crossover ever! Myself as Temperance Brennen aka Bones, and Heather as Myka Bering (Warehouse 13).

This Halloween only just ended, and I am already excited to find another costume for next year. I'm thinking if I can find a blond wig I could be Olivia Dunham from Fringe. That would be sweet! For now, I'm just going to kick back and relax, because I will be spending the day cleaning tomorrow...lol. Until next time!
