  • Sometimes you just need a good laugh, and this list from BuzzFeed provides it. I lost it at the sea flapflaps. Enjoy!
  • Although I’m sure you’ve already heard all about it, I am still pretty pumped about Marvel’s latest announcements. Most notably the next Captain America and Captain Marvel!
  • While the tone of this article about frivolous crushes is a bit cynical, I really enjoy the writing and how the subject is laid out. I feel there is such a huge difference difference between real love and the ooey gooey lovey feeling you get when you first meet someone, and this article only reinforces that.
  • In case you missed it, I was over at Sincerely, Sara this week taking part in her Books & Looks series! While I’m not too comfortable in front of the camera, I actually had a lot of fun doing the shoot with my BFF!

I’m a big fan of mashups, and this Portals/Zelda is fabulous. I love the Triforce on the side of the gun! Click the pic to see the rest of The Hookshot’s portfolio on RedBubble!

5 Fandom Friday


Happy Halloween!!

Today in the fun linkup from The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick, it’s all about your top five Halloween candy!

My daughter was ten months old for her first Halloween, and at that age we were not letting her have sweets. But we absolutely took her trick-or-treating for the sole purpose of scoring ourselves candy. Well, that, and seeing her dressed up in a tiger suit was just THE CUTEST THING EVER.

See? We even taught her to roar. 😀

I am actually a rather picky candy eater though. I really only like different varieties of chocolate candy, my top five being:

1. Kit Kat
Definitely my all around favorite candy bar, and not just at Halloween.

2. Three Musketeers
I love a good Three Musketeers, but definitely not the mint or dark chocolate varieties. Just the original please!

3. Reeses
Any form of Reeses is fine with me. It’s hard to mess up peanut butter and chocolate.

4. M&Ms
Just a classic, and I still love them. Peanut Butter is my favorite variety, but even plain are yummy!

5. Sweet Tarts
About the only non-chocolate candy that I really love! I love to suck on them so last a long time. However, I have definitely made the mistake of eating way too many in a row, and then your tongue tends to feel like it has a chemical burn….not quite what I’m going for.

I missed last week’s 5 Fandom post so I’m adding it onto the end of today’s – my top five favorite Halloween flicks and/or scary movies!

1. Beetlejuice
I adore this movie. I know most of it by heart, and it the first Blu-Ray the hubs ever bought me haha! I first saw it really young, when Beetlejuice’s transformations at the end were terrifying to me, yet I still loved it! Plus the combo of Tim Burton directing and Danny Elfman scoring is always fantastic.

2. The Ring
I saw this in high school and it scared the hell out of me. I became terrified of my TV, and TV static. I still have to look away at certain parts when I watch it because the distorted faces just freak me right out. However, it was a really well done horror film and it’s still one of my faves. I’ve never seen the sequels and don’t plan on it – this film is great on it’s own.

3. Poltergeist
Another classic that I saw when I was young and fell in love with. Plus, I find all the weird happenings to the cast and crew fascinating (though terrifying if it were happening to me!). Like The Ring, I’ve never seen the sequels.

4. The Exorcism of Emily Rose
I actually didn’t see this when it came out, but years later I watched it and was very impressed with it. I like how it was set up with the trial, and the whole time the possession is being questioned – was she mentally ill, or was she possessed? Also, fun fact, I went to school with an Emily Rose at the time this came out. Luckily, no one made fun of her!

5. Seven
I have to include one movie with a serial killer! I found this movie fascinating yet horrifying all at the same time. It also left me relatively terrified of Kevin Spacey for a bit haha. I have always found movie about real people/serial killers (vs monsters or ghosts) to be WAY more terrifying simply because I feel like it could happen to me at any time! And a few other of my favorite serial killer movies: Silence of The Lambs, Red Dragon, and the first SAW (NOT the sequels….yuck).
