I was contacted by Kathryn Hempstead about a cool infograph on creating a Game of Thrones Wedding for your big day. My wedding is thankfully over and done with, but for all you theme interested brides out there, check this out. Or if you just want to read a funny and informative infograph on doing a GoT wedding, you are in luck! [Source]
If you’all aren’t following me on Instagram you should be. I find posting pictures there super simple and they show up on Facebook, Twitter, and this website. What? So easy. Plus I have downloaded a grid app and love playing with filters. So, I’m probably most active on that right now seeing as I started a new job and life is once again about setting up a new routine.
One place that I took a ton of pictures of was a visit to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science here in Dallas. It is awesome! The museum is well laid out, we started at the top after taking an escalator up to the fourth floor. The escalator runs along the side of the building and you can stare out over Dallas as you ride it to the top. This was both cool and terrified the part of my brain that is deathly scared of heights. We also went through the Sherlock Holmes exhibit as Rebekah (Chris’ sister not picture here) and I both love Sherlock. We enjoyed the exhibit though it was chalk full of people and picture taking was not so easy. I did get one photo of a phonograph. So, yah, super exciting photo. The exhibit had us learn how to conduct “experiments” so we could view the clues and try to solve the case. It was confusing and people kept getting in the way. I got four out of five areas correct, but came to the correct conclusion anyway. I would love to go back and do that exhibit when a bajillion people aren’t standing in my way.
Here are my top pics of the day.
I finally broke down and created a Pinterest board Carry On My Wayward Son. It was inevitable. The Supernatural Fandom is one of the best. They are great. The show is really awesome as well. I think that the season five finale is one of the best season finales of any show that I’ve seen. I will admit that season six is a little wonky because the writers didn’t know they were going to get that season until the last minute, but the rest of the show is pure gold and available on Netflix for binge watching. Plus, the show has Misha Collins and Felicia Day on it as well as the two golden boys Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. What more could one want?
Amazing fan art
Felicia Day as Charlie in bobble head form for the win.
Misha Collins has the best answers ever and always!
Ron Swanson Paper Dolls FOR THE WIN!!!
There is a page called Ron Swanson Quotes which has a gallery of awesome pictures and quotes by the man himself.
My favorite Ron Swanson quote
Mustached mug and other Ron Swanson Etsy Finds
Ron Swanson street art.
Really awesome, but really kind of weird, fan art
The greatest Ron Swanson scene ever!
The Doctor is In and he is recommending a heavy dose of fandom glee in these fun Doctor Who finds that popped up on Pinterest.
First dose: A tree with a bow tie. It is probably only Whovians who would see Matt Smith in street art on a tree, but I immediately posted this picture to my Doctor Who board.
Second dose: It’s the TARDIS in the shape of a motor vehicle with some left over attachments from its Police Box days.
Final dose of Doctor Who magic: A perfect mash-up for Super Wholockians of the Supernatural Impala and the TARDIS the Impardis by SirGeorgPrime.
Here are some nerdy odds and ends I’ve found the internets here of late.
My mother sent me a link to this website that will send you info on free or cheap ebooks from the genres that you like. I’ve downloaded one book so far, and … well, it’s a weird premise for a book. But anyway. The concept behind this website is really cool. So check out BookBub if you are interested in getting info on free ebooks.
This video popped up on the internets. I don’t know if it is so nerdy, as much as, well, funny. Also, it is a reminder that when you are with a person hanging out, try to stay off your phone and actually spend time with the person you are with. Or a giant red bull will cart away your lover and she will happily go.
Check out this hot/cold Tetris coffee mug. I hate Tetris with a passion. Hate it. But the mug is cool.
Remember my post about the guy who can make hoops dance? Well @LindzeePoi sent me a link to his latest video, Street Lights. His work is mesmerizing and always makes me smile. I find it amazing how the lights seem to be separate entities from him, chasing each other around his body, just wonderful work. Plus the music is by Lindsey Sterling, I love her!
I know how I always talk about Chris being a viking, well I decided to give it a try too. I think I managed fairly well. (I discovered its about angles and not showing my very short legs.)
We recently moved and the other day I went for a walk and found a mortuary, automobile repair shop, and art studio all in the same block. It was kind of amazing. I discovered this portrait on the back of the art studio. And I fell in love a little.
A jaunt down the side street led to the discovery of a retaining wall and cement steps leading to nowhere. Homes that have been razed and grass now grows taking over the cement steps and sidewalk.
Most interestingly, this row of abandoned houses is led by the most perfect little leave it to beaver house. The last one standing in a field of grass and cement and towering trees. A lone reminder of what once was.
If you want to see some more abandoned places from the safety of your home, check out Forbidden Places: Urban Exploration a website full of photographs from urban explorers.
