I’m not a big fan of chess, I prefer card games, because I can win at card games. And don’t ever ask me to play Monopoly, I have never in my entire history of existence won Monopoly. But ask me to play Dutch Blitz (and now my Mennonite is showing), and I will beat your pants off. I told this to some college roommates and one of them was like I’ve been playing since I was twelve, so. . . I told her, I’ve been playing since I was seven. And then I beat her, severely.
They never asked me to play again. Even though I always help the person on my right get their cards out too. (Ok, yes, so technically that is to my advantage, still.)
Anyway, this chess set is uber cool. [via]
A little girl felt sorry for all the kids who didn’t get birthday parties because their families were too poor, so she created Birthday Fairies. Totally awesome.
Read about Wonder Woman’s secret exposition on American culture. What does she tell us about our lives?
Did you know there are people who don’t like puppies, chocolate, or bacon? (Personally I can leave or take bacon, its ok). That means that there are some people who wont like the creative things you put out into the universe either. Beth Revis talks about How to Respond to Negative Reviews of your written work.

Some great internet finds of the week revolve around Doctor Who. What can I say, I said up front I’m a huge fan girl.
Chair with a Panda on It, is a lovely wordpress blog about Doctor Who stories. Check it out!
The Bakery at the End of the Universe, by the Baker Who Waited, is all about food and Doctor Who and other things nerdy. Check out some yummy looking macaroons while gazing on Daleks.

Here is a delicious Doctor Who mini episode about the 2012 Olympics. Quite delightful! [via]
Yet another TARDIS dress. I like the pockets in this one and the shape of the bodice. Very cool. I really need to finish my TARDIS scarf. [via]
Mario wall decor and storage. This is when I know I’m a nerd and not a geek. Mario will never be on my walls.
But if at some point I was ever convinced to put Mario up on my walls at home, he wouldn’t go up in my bathroom. I’m sorry, but that is sacred space. Sacred. [via]
So, I’m Team Peeta all the way. I get a little tired when people always want the badass girl to go for the badass guy. In real life, that shit don’t fly. Because in real life the two strong headed people just end up fighting and breaking up. There needs to be someone with a bit more understanding and compassion for a relationship to really work. So I was Team Peeta from the beginning. He is clever, kind, and thoughtful. Who wouldn’t be Team Peeta? Well, apparently, I’m one of the few people who think like this. So I just mostly ignored Team Gale geeks as I do with anyone I don’t really want to fight over fictional characters with. Because, they are fictional. Then this week, as karma would have it, Team Gale has slammed some funny pieces in my face and I can’t honestly let them sit in my inbox getting stale. Though I want to.
I’m posting these because they are funny, and not because I’ve switched teams. Just to be clear.
One girl’s conversation with her Hunger Games book. It is hilarious! Read it. [Thanks to Keith for the tip]
