The Funday Post

A little girl disapproves of Tesco’s superhero alarm clock being advertised just for boys. We like superheroes too, dammit!

27 things you probably didn’t know about Clarissa Explains it All. Way cooool!

This little girl puts Gaston in his place at Disney World. So many little girls are kicking ass these days 😀

My good friend just launched her online store featuring her handmade enamel jewelry! Right now she has monogram necklaces up for sale. Check her out!

What malls in America looked like the in the ’80s! Oh, nostalgia.

Benedict Cumberbatch has officially been cast as Doctor Strange. Marvel is just giving me all kinds of reasons to live!

The ladies of Buzzfeed test out “one size fits all” products.

Take this quiz to find out what your Star Wars job would be. Apparently I’d be a smuggler, and the description is actually quite accurate!

In case you’re wondering what the description for smuggler is:

Life is… complicated, yes? So far it’s been one big scramble to find out who you are and where you’re going – let alone who will take the journey with you. People like you need a niche, a position of belonging and purpose. People like you also happen to possess an unmatched amount of charisma and wit – which becomes invaluable in a galaxy rife with unrest and gray politics. Smuggling may not be the most glamorous (or legal) of jobs, but it suits you to a T. And it pays. Boy, does it pay. Just keep your friends close, your enemies closer – and your blaster closest of all and you’ll be just fine.

Cheers,
Nina

♥ Grimm’s original fairytales (the super dark, creepy ones)  have been translated into English for the very first time! Watch the book trailer.

Neil Gaiman talks about fairytales, his latest story “The Sleeper & the Spindle” (which seems to be a Sleeping Beauty/Snow White mash-up), and how every fairytale is “a loaded gun.”

The trailer for the live adaptation of Cinderella is out now and ERMERGERD I’m so excited!

The Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is out too and it looks aca-awesome 😀

30 things from the most radical decade: The 90s. Crazy nostalgia awaits (for most of you, I assume)!

Which of the Seven Dwarfs Are You? Apparently I’m Bashful.

♥ Would You Rather?: Hot Guys vs. Food. Honestly, I’m appalled that being served cookie butter on a silver platter beat out an intimate camping trip with Tom Hiddleston. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Don’t you know Tom would bring the cookie butter on the trip because he knows you love it??? Because he is perfect!!!

Cheers,
Nina

JeeYoung Lee’s photographs is the stuff dreams are made of.

Kate Spade’s holiday ad starring Anna Kendrick as a fashionista locked out of her apartment building is too cute!

Amy Poehler talks about her book Yes Please with Terry Grossman.

Trends in geek fashion. Starting this blog, it was hard for me to find other fellow geeky fashionista bloggers, but now there’s a whole plethora that I’ve be-friended over the past few years! 😀

Which Disney Heroine Are You? quiz. I got Belle, which I’m totally okay with.

Hello Kitty will be permanent residency in Orange County next year via the Hello Kitty Cafe!

Toy Story 4 is happening and Rashida Jones is going to be a writer! I’m totally okay having a Toy Story movie come out every decade of my life. Just sayin’, John Lassester.

Which 90’s Nickelodeon Game Show Would You Have Conquered? According to this I would’ve kicked ass at Legends of the Hidden Temple, which was my favorite, but the Temple guards would’ve seriously given me so much anxiety!

♥ How has Idris Elba saved your life? Buzzfeed lists the 15 times he’s saved you.

♥ My Dark Side Sister Nami shares photos from her trip to London and other parts of the UK  and everything looks so beautiful! And she even got to hangout with a rock star and visit the set of the new Star Wars movie (no pics for that though, obviously). She’s that awesome.

♥ “All About That Bass” gets a Star Wars make-over via Team Unicorn’s parody “All About That Base: No Rebels”

♥ Artist Austin Light’s sketches show how your favorite movies become something entirely different when one letter is taken out of the title.

♥ I followed this easy-peasy recipe to make Franken Berry and Boo Berry krispie treats for a Halloween party at work. It’ll work for just about any cereal 🙂

♥ My friend from high school, Monica, wrote about how she didn’t shave her body for 18 months and what she learned from it. I got to see her progress as she posted pictures on Facebook over the last few years and she’s absolutely inspiring.

Cheers,
Nina

Salutations, my little ponies! I had an idea to start a weekly post featuring links to things I find amusing, fun, and adorable on the web. Thus, The Funday Post! This’ll occur every Sunday, hence the wordplay. Oh, and don’t be surprised if a bunch of quizzes from Buzzfeed (or anything from Buzzfeed for that matter), Play Buzz, and whatnot show up each week because I basically live for those things. I hope you all enjoy!

♥ I still can’t get over Benjamin McKenzie’s and Neil Patrick Harris’ family’s Halloween costumes. Perfection!

♥One of my favorite bloggers, Diana of Our City Lights, was interviewed by the BBC about her love of Hello Kitty!

♥ Amy Poehler’s Reddit AMA is filled with nuggets of gold.

Doge Weather is the best way to look up what the weather’s like in you neck of the woods.

Literary Starbucks = best Tumblr page EVER! Each post is written in the style of a famous author and how they would order a beverage from the infamous coffee joint.

♥ This quiz to see if you know all the words to “A Whole New World” sparked some controversy in the comments because of one specific lyric. That being said, I got 20/20 correct. 🙂

♥ My sister had me watch the Fung Bros’ “18 Types of Asian Girls” video and nearly died from laughter! Some of them were just so spot on. I identified with 6 out of the 18 types: Good Asian Girl, Geek Asian Girl (some of the things with that one weren’t as spot on for me, but still), White Washed Asian Girl (alt/indie rocker), Hipster Asian Girl, Forever Single Asian Girl (I really need to lower my standards, but single life is what I’m about at the moment), and Foodie Asian Girl (you’ve seen my Instagram account, right?).

Which Badass TV Lady Are You? quiz. My result was Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation. I identify more with Liz Lemon, but I love Leslie and she shares my love for Harry Potter, ponies, and waffles, so I’m content.

Cheers,
Nina
