READER SUBMISSION: Dark Side Apron

star-wars-apronReader Shira e-mailed us to let us know about her amazing, crafty, friend, Laura and her blog Pretty Nerdy Things, and in that e-mail was a link to this particular blog entry, the perfect, homemade Dark Side Apron.

In my humble opinion, there is nothing better than a long running, well known, very geeky joke turned into an apron. It references “cookies” and you can bake cookies while wearing it, how cool is that? Allow me to answer that: it is very cool (but you should probably still wear oven mitts when handling your cookie sheets, a cool apron will not protect your hands from the heat of the oven).

Laura‘s blog has all manner of geekiness on it, including a nerd’s guide to dating and romance, R2D2 Cookies, and movie reviews!

Friday the 13th Necklace

Friday the 13th necklaceI must hang my head in shame. I — a self-proclaimed horror film geek — have never seen any of the Friday the 13th films. Unless you count Freddy vs. Jason, which I kinda don’t.

Doesn’t mean I’m not immune to the bone-chilling effect Mr. Voorhees has. Just looking at his hockey mask scares me…even in itty-bitty pendant form.

Zanti Jewelry offers this hand-cast metal Friday the 13th pendant, among other unique horror movie themed jewelry, in their Etsy shop.

You may not be able to wear it in time for today’s Friday the 13th, but — like the films — there’ll always be another one. Bwa ha ha!
