Sorry for the delay in posting this week. My husband caught a nasty bug last week, which my son caught shortly after. Baby’s first cold is no joke. It was probably one of the longest weekends of my life. Once Egon started to get better, myself and my brother then caught it. It’s almost out of our household, but it’s taken some time.
As I’m still pretty rough feeling (super congested and unable to take meds for it since I’m still nursing), and my birthday is this weekend, I thought I might do a quick wishlist of some of the geekier things I’d love to receive.
SAILOR MOON CATS & ACCESSORIES EARRING SET
I’ve always loved Sailor Moon. It was one of my very first anime, and something my husband and I bonded over when we first started dating. Now that Egon is getting a little bit older, he’s really starting to grab onto stuff. Frequently he’ll pull the glasses off our faces, or grab a great big handful of hair while I’m holding him. This means dangling earrings are off limits for a bit, but that’s okay because there are some super cute stud earrings options out there. I’ve been wearing geeky jewelry for years and am a huge fan of when it’s super subtle (fun fact, each time my work has made me wear our “uniform” for company videos, I’ve always found a way to sneak some of my own personality in there with jewelry). These aren’t as subtle, but I still love them, and I love that the one pair has a little bit of dangle, but not so much that my almost 5
My casual clothes have always often consisted of graphic tees, but I haven’t bought many in
Staedtler 334C42 Triplus Fineliner Pens, Assorted – Set of 42
To date, I get super sad and nostalgic every September. Not because I miss school, but because I miss back to school shopping. I am a huge stationary nerd to the point that half of my stocking at Christmas time is usually pens and notebooks. Staedtler Fineliners hands down have to be my favourite pens. These have served me well for the past decade, through university, work and now into blogging. The colours are bright, lines crisp, and I’ve never had them smudge or bleed on me. They’re on this
Deception – Murder In Hong Kong
My family plays a lot of board games, and I especially love ones that tie into my interests. One store owner in Halifax used to joke he could probably get me to buy it so long as it was Cthulhu based. My entire shelf for Cthulhu themed games says he’s correct. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while now as I really enjoy games relating to emergencies or crime. This one seems to tie together the idea of a “whodunnit” mystery with the “the killer is amongst us” idea you get with games like Werewolf. I’m not the best at lying, but I think this one would be fun.
Pop! Pokémon: Bulbasaur
I told you before I love Bulbasaur, so you gotta know I squealed when they were coming out with a Funko Pop version of him. We have a rule in our house. Since Funko releases so many great Pop figures, we only buy the ones we truly love. My husband knew the moment he sent me this one, I’d want it. Rumour has it though, a certain adorable little boy might be getting me this for me birthday. Can’t wait to see if this comes true.
There you have it, a few of the things that
