Geeks

-342 : guinea pig pwn
This is a really old image of Sir Tom - but it fits! PS. This is one of my TWO guinea pigs. Yup, I have guinea pigs too guys.

Recently, I was contacted by HTC to participate in program using one of their new cell phones, an HTC One X+. For the past few weeks, a lot of my Instagram snaps have been taken with the new phone. I've been using it for tweets and what not while near wi-fi since I am not an AT&T customer. I wanted to put a post up about our 'geeky' style following a prompt because it isn't something I have addressed much here but always wanted to.


Here it goes. I might be a huge xbox fan. I run home every night to squeeze a few missions of Borderlands 2 in before working on blog stuff. Here are a few 'geeky' items my husband and I use frequently. I thought it would be fun to actually use the camera on my HTC One X+ for this one.


This Portal ring from a designer on Shapeways replaced Jason's wedding ring. It's an interpretation of a turret from Portal - and he's in love with showing it off all the time.


Speaking of Portal, last year I made a Wheatley Labratories blanket for Jason with some stencils and sewing.


I am trying to dye my hair redder so I can look more like Lillith from Borderlands. Yes, my real style icons are often video game characters.


These little cats have been adorning all the cell phones and iPads lately. Who doesnt want an adorable cat hanging off their cell phone? Plus, they fit all phones! So you don't have to have an iPhone to have adorable things.


My star wars dress is my ultimate geeky wardrobe item for sure. I love it to death and have mentioned on this blog more times than anything else I think. Plus, I feel like everyone knows Star Wars, so it's not like I have to explain myself every time I wear it.

So, what do you enjoy that you might not advertise all the time? I mean, I am not embarassed by any means of any of this - games, cats, and Star Wars are things I enjoy freely! But surely I am not the only one who has these seemingly hidden loves?

  1. Hello geek friend, I would like to present myself as a geek too :)

    I don't like to stereotipe to be honest. People like diferent things, I don't know why we have to have some name to everything. I like geek stuff but also handmade and cooking stuff. I'm a geek desperate housewife ^^

    I've seen those cats a while. Don't they fall easily from the phone? They would be lovely on my phone. I liked to play Bordelands 1 on pc, but my total addicted game (and that make me relax) was Left 4 Dead.

    Kisses

    1. I haven't had any issues with the kitties falling off - I have had them for about 3 weeks now. They fit into the headphone jack, so unless I apply some force, they stay put!

      And Left 4 Dead is the game we play with our friends still - we use the Xbox to keep in touch with all of our friends who we can't see often since we moved from our home towns!

  2. I am game for anything pug related. I am working on a t-shirt design now : )

    If I could I would just take my pug everywhere with me in a little bag, like the Chihuahua freaks, but sadly Zoe is too heavy for that.

  4. I love that you're expressing your geekdoms. I'm a HUGE zelda fan--I've got an Ocarina, played all the games, and my tumblr is practically dedicated to it. That star wars shirt is awesome!

  6. Um, OMG I love you. Borderlands 2 is pretty much the best game ever. We bought it for PS3 though and no one will play with us haha. We should have got it for Xbox...we only have 4 Xboxes in our house.

  7. I actually planned to blog about this at some point...but I have this weird thing for novelty mugs. I pretty much collect them and I love trying to find unique and fun ones. I'm also a huge Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fan. One of my other favorite movies is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and the only video game system I truly love is Nintendo 64. Oh, and I am obsessed with Jurassic Park.

    1. By the way....Portal is one of the few newer games that I really like! I'm a fan of the LEGO games too. I need to get my hands on the Lego LOTR game!

  9. I used to play the Sims games all the time. I love building the huge houses. If blogging didn't take up so much of my time I would still play. I love all the Lego games. Cody and I enjoy playing them together as a couple. Lol Also I have all my childhood Nintendos that we bust out to play every once in awhile. Dr. Mario is my all time favorite game!

  10. My boyfriend is trying to get me more excited about the games on his Playstation. He even bought me one that has all sorts of old Sega games on it. It's pretty awesome.

  11. I love that Star Wars dress, but as far as video game talk, you'll have to talk to the husband, I am foreign to all of that.

  12. I love when fashion bloggers also love geeky things :). While I'm not a huge video game person I do love Left 4 Dead, and I'm a huge Game of Thrones nerd! Love that Star Wars dress!

  13. STAR WARS DRESS, OH MY GOD!!

    And I am also a HUGE geek; glad you're rocking it too! :) I'm all about my Xbox. People who know me now never realize that I grew up as a gamer in a group of dudes. Geeks 4 life, dat's what's up.

  14. ksjfkshfisfSTARWARS! Haha, this whole post sounded like a foreign language to me until the end. Such an awesome dress!

  15. That Portal ring is AMAZING. I'm a big Nintendo DS closet gamer, especially for StreetPass. My husband is big into XBox, especially Assassins Creed. Which I love watching him play. It's like a movie!

  17. I love that you love all these things. Borderlands has such fantastic art, I am a fan. I am pretty openly a geek, I blogged a while ago about how I had a month off blogging because I was so busy playing Final Fantasy.
    I also love all the other comments from people saying they love geeky things too! No divide between loving fashion and loving action figures I say.

    I do have a post planned for later this week that mentions Magic: The Gathering. I started playing in October and have kept that a bit quiet from certain friends. I felt like it was cross some kind of weird line. Like there was nothing left to claim I am not an absolute 100% nerd and I would lose my last shred of 'cool'. I play D&D and buy comics and play games, but I feared Magic. Except it's totally awesome! :)
