Today is Matt Smith’s (a.k.a. “The Doctor”) birthday! I decided to wear some Doctor Who gear in honor of his coolness’ anniversary of birth because the obsessive teeny bopper part of me never died. Does that mean I’m a geeky bopper now? Oi.
And note how my shirt is the exact same pattern as the le fancy geek site! It’s by Rosemary Travale and it’s available on Threadless as a shirt or a tote. Of all my geek shirts, this one is the most subtle as it looks like an ultra fancy damask design. You’d never know it was a TARDIS if you weren’t familiar with the show. 🙂 If I had a house, I would want to wallpaper the dining room in this print. While there isn’t a wallpaper available, you can buy fabric with her “Tardamask” design on Spoonflower.
I also made this 11th Doctor necklace a few days ago. I think it turned out quite nice. I’m trying to find more Doctor Who images to use for jewelry making purposes. When I open Once Upon a Smorgasbord (which I mentioned in this post) I’d like there to be non-Disney things as well.
Jen and I checked out a used bookstore to see if they had cheapy copies of The Devil’s Arithmetic (it’s the next book we have to read for our Children’s Lit. class) or Mary Poppins, but I found a Nick Hornby book (can’t remember the title), The Princess Tales by Gail Carson Levine, The Little Prince (but it was binded the wrong way), and a Disney art book from the 70s. I also went to the public library for the first time in YEARS. When I asked if I could replace my library card, they said I was no longer in the system. Damn.
Jen and I also went to Joann’s Fabrics and I saw that their Halloween candy was on sale, so I bought a bag of candy corn because I’ve been craving it for the past week. But the damn stuff tastes like frosting! That wouldn’t have been such a bad thing if I didn’t eat a Pooh Bear cupcake I bought at Podesto’s yesterday for breakfast this morning. It was like 75% frosting and made me feel all kinds of gross. 😦
So yeah… that’s how my afternoon went (we also went to the Halloween store and ate breakfast food for lunch). Tim and I are going to watch 50/50 later this evening. Too bad he doesn’t like candy corn. What am I supposed to do with the rest of that crap? *le sigh*
