You probably caught this already as it stormed across the internet, but a woman painted a very cool Star Wars mural in her daughter’s room and it is the best thing ever. Plus, if you go into her exorcisingemily deviantart site you can see more fabulous murals she’s painted, you might even catch a glimpse of the Doctor. I follow her on twitter now and she is funny and amazing. [via The Mary Sue]
The X-Files has hit the small screen again this week and my husband and I are trying to get through the last few from the 90s so we can catch up with the rest of the world. In the mean time we are indulging in videos like the one below which lists the top ten episodes of the series. I have to say, they actually picked some good ones to reminisce about. [via WatchMojo]
The below video is short, but stunning. A day in the life of the earth in seconds. I love it! [via io9 and Glittering Blue]
I love Jimmy Fallon, I think he’s great! I know not everyone does, but for me Jimmy Fallon is someone who can make me laugh and feel better about life because of the joy of life that he brings to this world, and that is awesome. Here he is imitating Jim Morrison and singing Reading Rainbow. It’s nothing short of amazing.
I read this really cool article on WordPress Discover about Photographing Miniature Worlds and Jennifer Nichole Wells. A cool article and she makes some amazing scenes. I just love them! I’m totally into miniatures now after making so many cool things for my nieces. I may have to start my own haunted doll house or something.
The holidays are upon us and I have recieved a lot of wonderful geeky gifts I just have to tell everyone about! I got a TARDIS hoodie that I have wanted for ages! I got a Doctor Who mug which I’ve used the every day to watch the TARDIS disappear for coffee time. But, perhaps the most unique gift is the Doctor Who t-shirt I posted about earlier on this blog that my best friend sent me. It is soooo awesome and really does glow in the dark!
It’s like my people know me. 😉
I wore this Where the Wild Things Are T-shirt to work today. It was a present from my mother who has always been a huge supporter of my geeky side. I love that I can wear this to work, yes that’s my hand made TARDIS cork board behind me, and I even have a squishy TARDIS toy that lights up sitting on my desk. No one even blinks that I have these things. Either this is a testament to the power of me being able to get away with anything because I work hard, or people are so used to my weirdness it doesn’t even register anymore.
I just put together a couple of things that were floating around in the back of my head. I had a vague understanding of who Orson Scott Card was and I had not read him and I forgot why. The why is because I had read a long time ago articles about his homophobia and rantings on the subject (which are obviously based on the way he was raised and some deep seated fear of himself, as most hateful outlooks about other people usually are). It is a sad thing because I do like his Mither Mages series, but will not be posting any more reviews of his books.
When do we separate the art from the artist, and when do we just not give an artist with a hateful view another platform for their voice?
I’ve decided it is definitely time for another Doctor Who Day and supporting geekiness that totes deserves the support.
Think Geek has some great Doctor Who stuff on sale like this K-9 ornament that is just in time for the holidays and super cute if I may add.
And these TARDIS string lights which I am thinking about getting for my office. I already have a TARDIS cork board and plushie (which I still need to bring in) and these lights would round out my office nicely.

Do you follow Jonathan Carroll, author, on Facebook? You should. He posts some really cool things. Like the picture below.
Reasons Why My Wife is Crying post by Aaron Gillies is awesomely funny . His wife sounds adorbs. Also, please note he got her permission before posting, so she doesn’t mind being viewed as someone who cares about all the feels. Spousal permission before posting is important, I’m still trying to convince my husband to let me post the video where I try to tickle him with my feet and get stabbed by a fork for the effort. His stop-tickling-me-laugh is just too ridiculously cute to not get on video. Since I’m the one who looks like a brat, I don’t know why he’s having issues. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep working on him.)

Don’t Forget Doctor Who themed tee glows in the dark and is too awesome for words! This website has some other awesome nerdy tees that are sure to make your geeky heart pitter and patter. No I didn’t get compensation for this, but I should have. Please, give me the thing! [via TeeTurtle]
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.

My order actually also included a second hard plastic phone cover as well.
