It’s the Weekend and I’m Catching Up

Gah. I have never felt so overwhelmed, except when I was studying to take the bar. But it is Self Care Saturday and I am doing all the things that I love that I haven’t been able to do because of all the overwhelming things. I’ve gone through a lot of audiobooks that I want to write up and I’ve seen great things come across my Facebook and Twitter accounts that I want to share as well. So here goes my attempt to catch up on my nerdy business. And go.

They are making a GD TV show about the MAGICIANS by Lev Grossman. Go to the link and watch the official trailer. Now. (via JohnMichael)

I’m waiting.

OK. I will assume you’ve seen it. AAAHHHH! I can’t even. I want to quit all the things and find the episodes that are in production and binge watch them and force them to make more!!!! Why is it not 2016 yet???

What if Game of Thrones was Disneyfied? Would it look like this? (via George Takei)

Speaking of George Takei if you are not following him on Facebook. You really should be. He posts some amazing things that are sure to make your little nerd heart pitter and patter.

This next video is about two people who were given special effects make-up to show themselves and their soon to be spouse what they will look like over the next 70 years. It is a very amazing and heartwarming video that had me shedding more than a few tears. (via Tara Dee)

And you just gotta love the following hot chocolate mug even if you aren’t a huge basketball fan. It is just so cute! (via Loretta Milan)

Parks and Rec Remembering

Chris and I finished Parks and Rec and it was such a bitter sweet moment. I love that show! It has amazing characters and the craziest stories. I laughed with every single episode. It is also a show that Chris and I first bonded over as we got to know each other and so it has a very special place in my heart. Since I did a nostalgic post about The Office, I figured I should do one for Parks and Recreation as well. Thanks Amy Poehler for creating such a wonderful piece of art! (I love that lady.)

Rob Lowe was amazing and Chris Pratt made me laugh in every episode, but the two of them together was magic.

the boys

Aubrey as April was pure crazy delight.

Donna and Tom created an entire meme and gave us all the OK to Treat Yo Self. They didn’t take life too seriously and showed us how to deal with cranky pants people.

Anne played the strait woman to Leslie’s mad woman beautifully.

By that I mena, she is gah gah gah-orgeous.

Leslie and Ben are one of my all time favorite TV couple. They are playful, supportive, and kind to one another. Such a great role model of a couple. Most of the time.

I’m a Woolly Mammoth!

If you have access to Google’s earth day logo today click on it and take the quiz. I found out I’m a a woolly mammoth!

This means: So unique, you’re technically extinct, but on the bright side scientists hope to be able to clone you some day! According to my co-work that is totally me. :D Link to the quiz is here as well.

The Little Prince Official Trailer (2015)

Honestly, need I say more than the title of this post? This looks magical. I love how they took the story of The Little Prince and created a story around that. Amazing. One of my favorite adaptations of The Little Prince was a theater production I saw that had not only amazing acting, but amazing acrobatics. Here is a link to my review of that production. You can read more about the 2015 animated movie production here and watch the trailer below!

My Doctor Who Day and Outfit

I recently acquired a Doctor Who themed phone case of the TARDIS in the Starry Night scene of Van Gogh’s, I got it to match my necklace and inspired by these two items I crafted an outfit last week. I walked into work and showed off my necklace and phone case to my co-worker who is also a huge Doctor Who fan. “You look like a Doctor Who companion!” She exclaimed. Oooh, to go on an adventure with the Doctor!

Pretending I’m figuring out clues is always fun.

The Office Nostalgia

I’ve suffering from The Office withdrawal. Even though Chris and I are now finishing out Parks and Rec and it is an amazing show, I spent Thursday evening reminiscing about The Office and watching youtube videos and reading gifs of The Office quotes. Here are some faves.

Pam gets Dwight

Pam Beesly: We need everything back the way it was.
Dwight Schrute: You don’t wanna move. Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do in life. You’ll probably just take it out on your kid. Jim will turn to the drink. The family will fall apart, and twenty five years from now, Cece will become world famous… for stripping.
Pam Beesly: That’s a sad story. I have another one. We move, the other tenants follow, the bank takes the building, takes your farm, takes your car and beats the crap out of you. Penniless, you die, and my daughter Cece dances on your grave… fully clothed.

But they end up best friends. Dahhh.

best friends
