Pink Wash Conundrum

I don’t believe in washing my lighter clothes separately from my darker clothes. I ain’t got time for that! Throwing everything into the wash and putting it on cold has never ever been a problem for me. Why the hell am I talking about this? It’s all relevant to the outfit I’m wearing in this post, I swear! Now, you see that white t-shirt I’m wearing with an uber fancy pants Cyberman on it? Well, it is no longer white. It is pink because I accidentally didn’t switch the wash from warm/cold water to cold/cold water. UUUUGGGGHHHH!!! Such a rookie mistake! Wanna know what turned it pink too? If you guessed the skirt I’m wearing in these picture, you’d be correct. /facepalm

In a way it’s kind of funny since –SPOILER ALERT– Danny Pink from series 8 of Doctor Who turns into a Cyberman… and my shirt’s got a Cyberman and now it’s suddenly pink. Get it? Get it??? Haaaa… okay, I’m the only one who finds it amusing. 😛

It’s not drastically pink. I don’ think so, anyway. But another casualty that the red skirt hit was my mint green cropped cardigan. RUGH. – insert angry face emoji here

Lesson learned? Always triple check the water temperature before I wash my clothes!

Elite! Elite!

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things since coming back home from San Diego yesterday. Even though I only went to Comic-Con for one day I’m completely zonked out by it! I went on Sunday and I remember Sunday being the day that no one really cared to go to because nothing super exciting usually happened panel-wise, but friggin Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, and Supernatural were all at the infamous Hall H (it’s damn near impossible to get into a Hall H panel unless you plan on camping overnight), and that’s a pretty exciting line-up for a Sunday. I decided to ditch Doctor Who — as much as I love the show, I wanted to get the most out of my one day at Comic-Con by exploring the floor to see what was going on rather than spend it waiting in line.

I’ll talk more about my con experience throughout the week! I just wanted to post this cute outfit I wore to the the Neil Gaiman book signing earlier this month. I actually planned this outfit out right after Tim bought the tickets months ago. Is that weird? I can’t be the only person who put together outfits months in advance to wear to special events that aren’t weddings! Anyhow, I really dig the design on my shirt. It was designed by The Atomic Rocket and features a dapper Cyberman rocking a bowler hat, monocle, and a bow tie. There’s a little word bubble by him that says, “Elite! Elite!” (a play on their “Delete! Delete!” catchphrase). It was on Teefury awhile ago, which means that it was only offered for 24 hours, so I immediately bought it! I love the Cybermen, they’re definitely one of my favorite monsters on Doctor Who. I feel like they don’t get as much love as the Daleks do. And Neil Gaiman wrote an episode featuring Cybermen in the latest season of Doctor Who, so it was super appropriate for the signing! 😀

Until next time, kitties!

Cheers,
Nina

A Smorgasbord of Mushy Cute Stuff

Happy Valentine’s Day/Single’s Awareness Day/Thursday, everyone!

I don’t have any huge plans like I did last year, but Tim and I are going to stay in and eat pizza (I think…?) and watch movies this evening — we’re basically just doing what we usually do whenever we get to hangout over the weekend. Good times!

I just wanted to share some geeky and not so geeky Valentine greetings, including some I remember giving/receiving from the 90s, that I found on the interwebs!

Hope you all enjoy your day whether you happen to celebrate this Hallmark holiday or not 😀
