Items In My Mailbox Today: 2 Items!



Item #1: Powerpuff/Cornetto Trilogy Shirt from RIPT Apparel!

I'm pretty positive that maybe 5 seconds after I read a Tweet from Simon Pegg (if you don't know who he is than you fail - just sayin') about the 1 day sale of this shirt, I'd already finished squealing long enough to order it. This combines nostalgia with one of my favorite fandoms. I loved watching The Powerpuff Girls when I was a kid, plus I am currently obsessed with the Cornetto Trilogy (again, if you don't recognize this term, you've earned more Fail Points). The front character is Shaun from Shaun of the Dead, the one on the left is Nicholas Angel from Hot Fuzz, and the one on the right is Gary King from The World's End, all of which are excellent movies and characters, all played by Simon Pegg.

For those that don't know (and again, the immediate fails still apply), Simon Pegg has not only been acting for quite some time, but he's quite the figure in the geek world. I used this image with Simon Pegg during one of my early posts on my first blog surrounding Geek Culture that I started for a class back in the fall. Pegg definitely gets it right, and I'll continue to follow his career - as well as his Twitter account, where he apparently tips fans off to some of the most amazing merchandise ever! Honestly I don't so much want to wear this shirt as much as I want to frame it XDD It's the perfect combination of adorable and awesome.  I can't wait to wear it out and show off my inner geek! Maybe I'll wear it one day to Niagara Falls Comic Con or FanEx if I don't feel like cosplaying - what do you guys think?

Item #2: Postcrossing Postcard from Taiwan!

Another beautiful postcard with another natural beauty of the world plastered on the front - always fantastic! This rock formation is called "The Queen's Head", and it's located in Yehilu according to the postcard. The sender actually wrote her A/S/L on the card, which reminds me of the not-so-good old days of using Habbo Hotel - for those who don't know, it was an illicit chat room that should not be used by 12 year-old kids, which is how old I was; not a good thing XP Anyway, this postcard contains two cute stamps, one containing a koala bear and the other has some sort of black/forest bear on it with a mountain background. She also drew a cute little stick figure illustration with a big face and a cheesy grin along with her message, which I found adorable. Apparently she's never visited Canada, but she would like to one day. It seems a lot of Postcrossers use different coloured inks for their messages, like how this sender wrote her message in blue but drew hearts, cheeks on her stick figure and the ID code in red. I'll have to remember that for the future . . .

I'll keep everybody posted until next time!
