I’m pretty excited about this Friday’s prompt because it involves something I really, really, really, love: ANIMALS!!! Or to be more specific, pets. The first pet I ever had was a goldfish named Figaro that went belly-up before you could say “Jiminy Cricket.” Then there’s was bird named Cucu, but I consider Rory to be my first legit pet. I think of him more as my furry son, but that’s because I’m a crazy dog lady. So it’s no big surprise that all the fictional pets on my list are all dogs… except one. 🙂
I loved Wishbone sooo much when I was a kid. The show combined two of my favorite things: dogs and books! Wishbone’s love of stories definitely further enhanced my love of reading as a youngin’, plus he’s cute as hell. I think that’s reason enough to want to adopt him.
✿ Dug from Up
Dug is super lovable and I’d be able to have legit conversations with him because he can talk back!
✿ Ghost from Game of Thrones
Jon Snow’s faithful dire wolf would be an ideal pet because he’s extremely loyal and would protect me from all kinds of creeps. And if my friends found themselves in grave peril, he’d come to their rescue too. 🙂
✿ K-9 from Doctor Who
I know he’s a robot, but he’s still a dog. And like Dug, he can talk. Sometimes I need someone to talk to when other human beings aren’t around, okay?
✿ Rajah from Aladdin
Princess Jasmine’s big ‘ol tiger has been one of my favorite Disney pets ever since the movie came out (which was a long ass time ago)! I actually still have the stuffed Rajah I got for Christmas back in ’93 too. Anyway, I think Rajah would be an ideal nap buddy (he’s so big and fluffy!), and help me ward off unwanted male suitors.
What fictional pets would you like to adopt? Let me know in the comments!
Hey ponies! I just wanted to let you know that “Le Fancy Bloops” have just been added to Le Fancy Geek Boutique. You might be wondering what the ever loving frickity-frak are “Le Fancy Bloops”? They’re pendants that didn’t turn out as great as it could have, but despite their little imperfections, they’re still totally wearable. And at $8 a piece, they’re a steal!
You can find them here.

Hey my little ponies! I’m not dead, I swear. I’ve just been recuperating from last week’s geeky festivities at Comic-Con. It’s been a little over a week since I was down in San Diego and I still feel grossly exhausted. I only went to the actual convention for 2 days (Saturday/Sunday), but I got there on Thursday and there were plenty of things to do off-site! One thing included the Game of Thrones exhibit at the Omni Hotel. Oh, by the way, I’m horribly obsessed with that show right now. SO. OBSESSED. I started it a couple weeks ago and I’m currently on the 4th season, meaning I marathoned the sh!t out of seasons 1-3. * insert screaming face emoji *
Anyhow, everyday the line capped around 2ish, so on Sunday morning I got there at 7:30 am because I DID NOT want to miss it (the line wrapped around the building by 9:30, yikes)! And it was totally worth the three and a half hour wait. The exhibit was full of original costumes (take a look a the insane details on the costumes pictured below. The embroidery is immaculate and gorgeous!) and interactive experiences such as making a gif set next to Drogon (I’m not posting mine because I froze and ended up smiling because I had no clue what to do), going into a cage with headphones and occulus goggles like you’re going up the Wall; a fireball came hurling at me at the very top and I “died.” Valar Morghulis, I suppose (that means “all men must die” in High Valyrian). It was kind of scary and I ended up gripping the side of the cage and I could totally feel my arm digging into the bars. Haha! But there was one girl who was totally freaking out — her shrill screams of terror filled the room as she made her “descent” (quotes because it’s not really happening, y’know?) down the Wall. Oh, and of course the last part was having a photo op on the Iron Throne! I wore my Khaleesi shirt and my sister bought a set of dragon egg keychains from the Factory Entertainment booth so I held one of them in my picture 🙂 Everyone also got a baby blue Khaleesi shirt with her three dragons on it. Huzzah for freebies!
One more thing that the exhibit offered were free tattoos courtesy of HBO to the first 25 people in line who wanted them each day. Like, REAL legit permanent tattoos. House Stark is my favorite (I think they’re everyone’s favorite, right?), so if I had the opportunity to get one the tattoos I probably would’ve picked a dire wolf (#7 on the picture above) or maybe the one that says “Valar Morghulis” (#1). I like the Baratheon sigil the most (a stag with a crown around its neck — like Bambi!) and their house saying is pretty badass (“Ours is the fury”), but I’m just not crazy about anyone that belongs in that house.
There’s a Game of Thrones exhibit that’s been traveling across the globe for awhile that has way more props and costumes than the exhibit I went to. The last stop will be in Vancouver from August 8 – September 1, so if you love GOT and happen to be in Vancouver between those times you should definitely go.
PS: Here’s yours truly sitting on the Iron Throne!
