LEGO Storage Bricks

I’m currently in the process of reorganizing our office, and if you’ve got the organizing bug as well, you’ll love these LEGO storage bricks. If your roommates/significant others are not down with LEGO-themed storage (what’s wrong with them?), then there are smaller options perfect for storing your lunch, snacks, or small items in a drawer. The LEGOs are stackable, so buy enough and you can build that giant dinosaur you’ve always wanted. Or just store your actual LEGOs inside for a nice set of LEGOception.

LEGO storage bricks, $10-36 at Fab.com.

Geek Battle

geekbattle

I’ve been enjoying the show King of the Nerds lately because it really celebrates those who are a bit geeky, nerdy, and quirky. I’ve been cheering on my favorite contestants as they battle in chess, cosplay, trivia, and more, and now I can almost-kind-of play along at home! Geek Battle, the “Game of Extreme Geekdom,” is a trivia game made for geeks with categories such as sci-fi, fantasy, comics, video games, science, and technology. It can be a nice break between board games one night or serve as an ice breaker at your next party. Or heck, grab some cameras, make a geeky throne, and create your own low-budget reality series.

Geek Battle, $13.57 at Amazon.com. (Really? They couldn’t make it $13.37? Missed opportunity there.)

Stunt Ranch

I want to go to there.

Seriously, I don’t think I need to say much about this. It’s a place where you can go and learn how to do the stunts you see in your favorite action flicks. Who’s up for a trip to Texas?

This is the perfect place to celebrate your birthday, Bachelorette party, date night, or just a Tuesday. If any of you readers go, PLEASE send me pics/video!

“Epic” Collection from BlackMilk Launches Tonight!

BlackMilk has more tight and shiny clothes for us, and it’s launching 8pm tonight Pacific! I’m particularly jonesing for the Gameboy-inspired dress (I hear they even have it in hot pink!). I’m just trying to decide if it makes me seem to much like I’m an object to be played instead of a person that plays games. Thoughts?

Will you be grabbing anything from the newest collection?

Charge Your Phone With Your Bracelet

I swear at least once a week I hear someone say “Does anyone have a phone charger with them?” The person asking is usually out of luck, and is stuck with a dead phone for the rest of the day. I’m excited to come to the rescue (or just rescue myself) next time with one of these snazzy phone charger bracelets. Available for iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5, Android, or any micro USB device, the bracelet can detach to charge your device with any USB outlet.

Prices vary based on color, all on Amazon. Buy a few for friends (or for different outfits)!

Walking Dead Recipe: Dandelion Green and Walnut Pesto

I received an email over the weekend describing a link with an infographic for an adorable recipe inspired by Walking Dead. I did an actual double-take. Walking Dead? Recipe? ADORABLE? But when I looked at the image, it was true. It was all true.

Whether you’re a Walking Dead fan or are just looking for a nice pesto recipe, you’ll be pleased with this infographic made by the same author who created the unauthorized Doctor Who cookbook:
