Hey Girl. Cool Shirt.

Hey Girl. Today is Ryan Gosling’s 34th birthday!

What better day to show off this crazy, stupid, lovely (see what I did there?) t-shirt from Clashist that features the Gos’ handsome mug all over it than today? I’ll be honest, I forgot that today was RyRy’s special day until I checked Facebook this morning. But to my defense, am I really obligated to remember all my celebrity crushes birthdays? I certainly hope not! Anyhow, I immediately put this outfit together because it is absolutely appropriate for today. 😀

So this outfit post, unlike all the ones I’ve posted in the past, is a legit #OOTD/#WIWT (Outfit of the Day/What I Wore Today). Like, I’m seriously wearing it as I put this post together. I had to ask one of my co-workers to take pictures of me during within a 5-minute span just so I could make this post after I got home from work. Shout out to Brianna for taking the pictures with my phone!

Like many ladies my age, I was first exposed to the sexiness that is Ryan Gosling during his Mickey Mouse Club days. Err… okay, so he wasn’t sexy then — I mean hellooo, what was he, 13? GROSS. At the very least he was adorable and 7-year-old me totally had a crush on him, but Tony Lucca was my main man back then. But all of sudden he got all grown up and started appearing in all these great movies, formed a band (Dead Man’s Bones), and stole my heart along the way… along with millions of other girls. ♡

Happy Birthday Ryan Gosling!

Are you ponies fans of the Gos too? If so, what are some of your favorite Ryan Gosling flicks? Mine are Blue Valentine, Half Nelson, Remember the Titans, Lars and the Real Girl, and Crazy, Stupid Love. Oh, and do you guys remember when he was Young Hercules? – insert laughing emoji here – 

Cheers,
Nina

Hey ponies! Do any of you watch Outlander? I got into it a bit late, but was able to marathon the crap out it right before the mid-season finale a few weeks ago, and now I’m left with this gaping hole in my geek heart because I. Need. To. Know. What. Happens. Next. UGH! I still can’t believe I have to wait until April 4 for Outlander to come back!

– shakes fist at the heavens –

WHHHYY??? Why would they make us wait that long? It’s not fair! The show is based on a successful book series by Diana Gabaldon, so I know that can hold me down until April, but I have so many other books I need to get around to. First World Bookworm problems, man. – le sigh –

Anyhow, if you’re not familiar with Outlander, it’s about a woman named Claire Randall, a combat nurse from the 1940s. While her and her husband are on their honeymoon in Ireland, she mysteriously gets transported back through time (1743 to be exact). To say Claire’s situation is difficult is an understatement as she’s nearly assaulted by her husband’s ancestor, and saved by the Mackenzie clan, only they believe she’s an English spy. Claire uses her nursing skills to gain their trust, but she’s constantly relying on her smarts to get her through all the trials and tribulations thrown her way and fight to stay alive. So, Outlander is pretty much a concoction of all genres us geeks love: history, science fiction (time travel!), and romance.

Claire is crazy strong and über clever! It’s refreshing to see such a strong female character on TV. She has her damsel in distress moments, but (for the most part) she knows how to take care of herself. And of course I have to note that all the tartan and thick knitted scarves she donned made me long for Fall sooo badly (get with it, California)! So I threw together a little everyday cosplay inspired by her. 🙂

Cheers,
Nina

I need to talk to some food about this…

Why yes, that *is* a giant stock of asparagus I’m leaning on.

After class I met up with my friend Caitlin, who was also in the Creative Writing program at SFSU with me! I’ve been missing school like CRAZY. I know I’m taking a Children’s Lit. class at the community college with Jen, who was also in the CW program with me, but it’s not the same. I love seeing Jen all the time, she’s one of mah beeeest frriiiends, but I miss seeing my CW buddies on a weekly basis. I miss reading their stories. I miss talking to them about the good stories and the really bad stories (appletini… oh my god) we had to read for classes. I miss chatting with them before and after class about random shit. I just miss them all in general! So it was soooo nice to hang out with Caitlin, and all we did was talk and talk and talk about our mutual love of Liz Lemon (I swear she’s a mini Liz Lemon/Tina Fey), how Christina Hendricks is the only woman I’d go lesbian for, TV shows we managed to start/or  finish watching over the summer, celebrity crushes (RYAN GOSLING! ZACHARY LEVI!), *NSYNC, Harry Potter, food, adjusting to life back in Stockton after living in the bay for awhile, Disneyland… jeez, what didn’t we talk about?

I made Caitlin take this picture so I could send it to our friend Dana. And see? She’s totes mini Liz!

Frozen yogurt found its way into our conversation after I mentioned that Nubi has Dole Pineapple sorbet which is basically the same exact thing as a Dole Whip from Disneyland. If you’ve never tried a Dole Whip — NAY! — if you’ve never been to Disneyland AND never tried a Dole Whip, you haven’t lived your life to the fullest yet.

Dole Pineapple frozen yogurt makes me feel like I’m at Disneyland.

After I dropped Caitlin off,  my mom gave me a couple of Graham Snackers when I got home. What are Graham Snackers, you might be wondering? Lemme tell you! It’s like an ice cream sandwich, only it consists of graham crackers, grape jelly and peanut butter. My mom and my cousin Cynthia were talking about them over the weekend and I was just so lost. I guess it’s the new thing they serve at school cafeterias. And you know what? I feel like I was robbed. That stuff is hella nummy. Why wasn’t that around when I was in elementary school?!

THESE NEED TO BE MADE AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE.

I suppose I should be thankful that I at least had tater tots. Dammit, now I want tater tots. Or hashbrowns. Jack-in-the-Box has tiny hashbrowns… I think? WHY ARE POTATOES SO AMAZING? <– BRB, I gotta find some food to talk to.

Blurgh.
