I have yet to buy Portal 2, but I am a huge fan of the first game. For a while after playing it, I would think of all the ways a portal gun would make my life easier (instantly having access to the fridge from anywhere in the house, for example)...

Sith Lordette

Dudes! That adorable girl who decided to join up Dark Side is back! And she's got a website! Honestly, I don't care that her family is trying to bank on her new found internet fame, I am just so happy that there is an 8-year-old girl who is out loud and proud about her geekhood, and offering a place for other girls to join in the discussion. And...yeah, I'm a bit of a teeshirt hoarder, so seeing that they're offering some swag, I might have to pick one up.

Timey Wimey Weekend

So, besides that holy Jesus day, this weekend is also featuring the NEW SEASON OF DR WHO!!!!!! OK, so....I don't actually have cable, so I will not be watching it (insert saddest puppy face ever. Now multiply that by a million), but I can still celebrate with the above video showing one of the makings of that iconic Dr. Who theme (also my current cellphone ring).

Additionally, you can wear the proper attire for such a prestigious weekend:

If you're a fan of the Doctor, you know the Angel episodes are the creepiest ones ever. Show the world you almost wet your pants because a statue with this shirt from ThinkGeek!

Maybe you've got a lot of fandoms on your plate (which, sadly, isn't full of pie) and you can't choice between the two. Don't worry, Shirtoid's got you covered.

Now, even though there is a lot of celebrating this weekend (the Lord rising, the Time Lord rising, etc), there is a bit of sadness. The wonderful Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane, passed away this week. She was only 64-years-old (and, honestly, I was surprised she was that old. That woman looked AMAZING). I loved Sarah Jane's character; spunky, quick, and feminist, and seeing her come back in the Dr. Who reboot was just the best. Her passing was a sad sad day in the Whoverse. John Kovalic of Dork Tower said it the best with this post. Farewell Sarah Jane. Somewhere out there, the lonely Doctor is a bit more lonely.

You smelly little half elf

Black Phoenix Apothecary Lab
(the go to place for nerds, goths, and wiccans that want to smell pretty) has just come out with a scent line based off of Dungeons and Dragons. Apparently, you are to layer the perfume oils, so you get the scent based off of your character.
So, would you want to roll some dice with me if I smell like pale golden musk, honeycomb, amber, parma violet, hawthorne bark, aspen leaf, forest lily, life everlasting, white moss, and a hint of wild berry, rose amber, frankincense, myrrh, champaca flower, Peru balsam, cistus, palisander, cananga, hyssop, and narcissus absolute, a whirling mélange of multicolored musks with wasabi, rooibos, heliotrope, and mastic, shimmering celestial musk with vanilla, white honey, acacia, and sugar cane?
I know, that's a mouth full, but I am excited to see this. Since the majority of their clientele are women, maybe this will lead more girls into the world of D&D. And, since I'm about to start playing Dragon Age 2, I will have something to get me in the mood (oh, you Ranger with buckskin and what ever cabreuva is....).

Candy Corn for Easter Weekend

Check out this video from Science Friday: Astronaut Don Pettit used up the crews entire supply of candy corn to show us how soap works. My knowledge of soap comes from half listening to an episode of Beakman's World when I was eight-years-old, so this quick video totally expanded my mind by giving me such words as hydrophobic. If you want to nerd out even more, check out this link, which will go further into how soap works and quiz you on it afterwards.

He has risen! The mighty (chocolate) Cthulhu!

I ordered one of these the second I saw them (via The Mary Sue), because nothing says Happy Easter like a chocolate idol of the great priest Cthulhu. Hey, if you're going to spend the holiest day of Christianity eating some kind of chocolate figure, why not make it Lovecraftian? At least it's cooler than a bunny, and slightly less horrific than those creme eggs. Pick up your own eldritch horror for your Easter basket here. And please don't blame me if you go mad from it.

Mini Geek Girl Pride

To continue along the same lines of my last post, I want to provide some evidence that there are girls out there who are totally geeky and freaking loving it. This little girl is my favorite. She must have someone wonderful in her life who let her watch (hopefully just the original) Star Wars movies. Check out that sweeping bow she gives! It's like she knew this was her moment to shine, shine in the darkest star ever. And the second one is this little bit of wonderful:

I love how she's not even shy, she just shouts it out. Hopefully, that toy is actually hers and not her brother's. Rock on adorable little nerd-girls.

Female+Geek = XX

Listen, for a while now, there's been "girl geeks." I know it's hard to believe; females are to wear skirts, stay in the kitchen, and not get near that big, shiny computer. What on Earth are they doing enjoying Star Wars, reading comics, or playing WoW?! Fucking vaginas are ruining everything!
But seriously, there are girl nerds. There has been XX geeks for a very long time. I mean, come on, the first computer was thought up by a woman! So, if we've been around for so long, why are we still seeing crap like this.
OK, maybe you're looking at it and not feeling all femrage, but I am. I mean, look at it! What girls want are grocery bags, cat toys, and kitchen utensils? What, no pearls and high heels for our vacuuming needs? Oh, and a massage pen? Really? Stop it. And the ice cube trays!!!! Diamond shape and Titanic shape. My eyes are getting stuck in an Eye Roll.

If you've still with me, and I assume the .63 people who read this blog are, you'll kindly look over to the other sections this website offers: Man Cave, Manly Supplies, Big Boy Toys, Be A Man. Yo,, there are too many dicks on the dance floor. Please realize that women also want telescopes. In fact, I'm shopping for one right now. I plan on using it during my honeymoon in Hawaii (side note: don't be jealous). Am I going to purchase one from your website? No, I'm not. Regardless of all the cool looking geekery you offer, I'd much rather take my money someplace were my vagina AND my 12 sided-dice are welcomed. Suck my tampon, and call me when you decide females also know what science, math, and computers are.

Adorable way to start a Monday

Dudes, check out how freaking adorable this artwork is:Agnes Garbowska's artwork always gives me the warm fuzzies, and this one right up there. Look at the eyebrows on The Thing! Look a that chibi Miss Marvel! And photobooth pictures! My girly heart is gushing. It's up on ebay right now through the Hero Initiave for a insanely good price. Bidding goes on until tomorrow, so even though I wanted to hold out for the Amanda Conner artwork, I might just through a few dollars onto this one.
