This time of year, while being my favorite season (Fall), drives me crazy. Having the sun set before 5-5:30 PM in the evening sets my internal clock all kinds of out of whack. With the countdown to Thanksgiving here in the states at a little over a week and a half left, I’ve been searching through recipes by the dozens – looking for something unique to try this year. It’s a little thing my friends and I do each year, have a little Turkey Day cook off. This year – I intend to win. 🙂
When I saw the set Kibitz had made for Fantasy Gacha Carnival this time my first thought was – Scheherazade. She who married a king and was saved from death by keeping him intrigued with tales she told each night. That’s the simplified version. Of course my brain works in a disjointed, yet related way and had me leap from Scheherazade to Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, from Ali Baba to the Aladdin, and now I have “Friend Like Me” from the Disney version of Aladdin stuck in my head. See how that works? Completely understandable, right?
I admit it. I am kind of a sci-fi geek. Maybe a little more that “a little.” I grew up watching Star Trek with my dad. My favorite movie is The Fifth Element. I read Lois McMaster Bujold. Sci-fi is love. Just saying. So when I saw this coat from Sweet Lies I thought – and this is where the little light bulb clicks on over my head – Jupiter Ascending. While it may not be the most brilliant of stories , the movie sure did have some serious eye appeal. (And no, I am not just talking about Channing Tatum.)
Fantasy Gacha Carnival is almost here and let me tell you, are there some truly beautiful and fantastic things coming your way. SO. MANY. SHINY. THINGS. The theme for this round is Silver, Gold – Angels and the Dark Side of the Moon. For my first FGC post I nabbed this set from FDD Stories. I put in on and felt like a fantasy version of Wonder Woman. Funnily enough, a friend of mine said the same in voice to me as I was thinking it when I put this on. 😀
It’s almost that time. Halloween is near, and the time change too. And then it’s a mad dash to New Year’s with the holidays in between now and then, and their unique way bringing the crazy out in everyone. Whether they celebrate them or not. But first… you still have time for Geeks’n’Nerds and all the nostalgic, geek-ish, nerd fun. I raided my stash of goodies that the creators we so gracious to share (Thank you!) and made a nerd “clubhouse”, of sorts.
