Fun Friday–The Wesen Connection, Irish Wristwatches, and Smell Like a Book

Friday, June 22, 2012

Since I didn’t do a “favorites seen around the ’net” post last week, this one may be a little long. But hopefully worth a few smiles and maybe even a chuckle or two. Let’s get started, shall we?

The Avengers—Firefly Style


Tea, Earl Grey, Hot
Because of that line, made famous by Captain Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generration, I tried Earl Grey tea, and it quickly became my favorite. But was there really an Earl Grey?


Hey, Christian Girl
If you’ve been on Pinterest, it’s likely you’re familiar with Hey, Girl images—photos of male celebrities and/or movie/TV characters with pick-up line captions starting with “Hey, Girl . . .” It was just a matter of time until we got Hey, Christian Girl. (Yes, it’s a spoof site.)


Eight Misconceptions About Animals


Instant Sound Effects!


That New Book Smell
Is the smell of new books your favorite smell in the world? Well, now you can smell that smell all day long—by wearing it.

Paper Passion fragrance by Geza Schoen, Gerhard Steidl, and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl.

“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”
Karl Lagerfeld

Do You Remember the Colors of the Original Trivial Pursuit Categories?
My sister and I got Trivial Pursuit for Christmas the year I was in ninth grade. The summer before I started my freshman year of college at LSU, before we really knew anyone in Baton Rouge and with no cable TV and very few movies on video (yes, I said video), Trivial Pursuit (and our Bible trivia game) was one of our main sources of entertainment—and it got to the point at which we had a lot of the answers memorized. So I was able to match up the colors with the categories in no time flat. What about you?
Can you match the colors to the original Trivial Pursuit categories?

    Ah! The Joss Whedon Avengers video was great! Thanks for sharing!

    And thank you for sharing Uncle Walter’s site. 🙂 Just to clarify, all of the covers we post are 100% real and unadulterated. We simply comment on how terrible they are. Longmire’s are works of genius, but the covers are manipulated into brilliant parodies. Different, yet connected, of course.

      Thank you so much for stopping by! I subscribe to Uncle Walter’s Bad Romance Novel Covers (through Google reader), and love the sarcastic wit!

    Thanks! 🙂 I put the “Wesen Connection” video together for Iain McKinnon’s awesome song. Don’t you love his Kermit voice? (I hear Iain is actually a frog Wesen.)

    You neglected to mention that I regularly whooped your butt at Trivial Pursuit :0)
