Happy St Patrick’s day everyone! Unsurprisingly this weeks prompt is a little green 😉 For my green photo challenge I decided to stick to geeky/fandom related items so here’s 5 photos of geeky stuff I own.
I’ve read all of these but one (can you guess which? 😉 ) and recommend them all. Have you read any of these?
My Naughty Nessie plushie alongside my 1980s Good Luck Bear Care Bear plushie and finally my Tatty Teddy frog costume plushie.
A selection of green movie DVDs (and one bluray) from our movie collection featuring some comic book films (Suicide Squad, Green Lantern and Hulk), and some animated and childhood loves (Space Jam, Shrek Forever After, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and the Princess the Frog).
I then raided our TV Boxset collection to serve up this mish-mash of genres featuring Red Dward, House, Lost and Buffy.
Despite having video games for PC and three different consoles, there were only these two that fit the green criteria. Have you played them?
I hope you enjoyed this quick peek into my geeky and fandom items 🙂
I’m taking part in Geek Blogs Unite themed topic about the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney! The plan was to spread two posts out across the theme period, and now with two days to go I’m just getting the first one done. Stomach bugs are evil 🙁 I’m still not feeling great so instead of going as in depth as I wanted to, I’m just going to share my favourite disney songs rather than try to explain why I love them so much. I decided to choose one per movie, otherwise we’d be here all night. So these aren’t even a full list. You can check out what I listen to regularly over at my Disney spotify list!
The music of Disney is one of the biggest parts of why I love Disney movies so much, and if you love Disney too then you probably don’t need me to tell you why these songs rock my socks.Enjoy!
The Little Mermaid
The Lion King
The Lion King 2
Beauty and the Beast
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
The Princess and the Frog
Disney TV Show Theme Songs
I grew up in the 80s/90s and there are several catchy Disney theme songs from shows that I still get stuck in my head years later. These themes are unique and still rock many years later. And yes, I still know all the words to them 😉
And something special for you to save for Christmas:
I will say a word about this one 😉 I still have this on VHS at my parents house. I loved this and still do, and last Christmas I looked it up and youtube and low and behold, it’s there! This brings back so many memories for me as I used to watch it every Christmas as a kid.
Wow that was hard! Could you narrow it down to one song per movie? I had to change a few around, and had to force myself to stick to my own rule. It’s not easy!
This weeks prompt is a special one to celebrate the birthday of one of the 5 Fandom Friday creators, Megan at The Nerdy Girlie. Happy birthday Megan! Unfortunately, I had to tweak the prompt a bit as I don’t visit coffee shops much. I wanted to keep with the coffee theme to honour Megan so I’m sharing my favourite geeky coffee mugs!

Troll Dress Up Mug
I spotted this in a store last year and geeked out about it; Chris was not impressed. I loved trolls when I was a kid and the idea of being able to play dress up on my mug? Awesome. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))
There are loads of Star Wars themed mugs around, including some cute Funko Pop ones, so I had a hunt and my personal choice is this R2-D2 mug. I love that it is the shape of the droid and that his domed top covers the mug. I’m really accident prone so having a top on my mug is probably a good safety feature 😉 ((Image Credit – Pricerighthome))
Marauder’s Map Mug
Colour changing mugs are becoming a thing, and Morphing Mugs has a whole range of them. It’s this Marauder’s Map mug though that remains my favourite because of how the map itself works. The map appears blank until it’s activated and the mug mimics that feature with the temperature change. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))
Naughty Nessies Mug
I have been in love with the Naughty Nessies range since I found it, and this is my daily go to mug. I love how quirky and cute it is, and reading the ‘Nessies’ always makes me smile. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))
