5 Fandom Friday: Blogging Snacks

5fandomfriday
It’s time for another 5 Fandom Friday (a linkup hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick – check their amazing blogs out for more information on the linkup!). This week’s topic for the post was “Favorite Snacks/Drinks To Consume While Blogging”. Here are mine in pretty much the order of importance:

1. Coffee

I always drink coffee…doesn’t matter what I’m doing!

2. Tea

If I’ve kept track of my coffee consumption and notice it’s getting waaayyy too high, I switch to tea. If I’m feeling very health-conscious I have green tea.

3. Grapes

I like to snack while I do stuff (VERY bad habit) so I try at least to make it something healthy like grapes, which are a good and easy snack.

4. Peanuts

Basically, the same thing as with grapes… Also, for some reason we always have peanuts :P

5. Chips

Okay, so here’s my biggest vice – I’m completely addicted to chips. And right now I’m trying to cut down A LOT so I haven’t any in a long while…but if I was to completely give in to my cravings, I’d opt for some sour cream and onion chips or something similar. But, like I said, at the moment I’m trying to stick to the grapes and peanuts, and maybe some cottage cheese.

5 Fandom Friday: To Be Read/Watched/Played

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday linkup topic was “Things I’ve Bought But Haven’t Read/Watched/Played Yet”. And there are so many… My biggest problem is books, because I buy them all the time and get them as presents and I never really have time to read anything other than school books.

5 Fandom Friday

1. Buffy season 8 Library Edition HC comic book

This is actually my most recent buy, because I’ve been drooling after these comics forever and I finally found them for the cheapest price in an online bookstore. So, I had to get it. Obviously.

2. Buffy: the Making of a Slayer

This book is so fabulous and I got it recently from London (it was on sale and dirt cheap!), but I haven’t gotten around to reading it. Can’t wait though – especially because I did read the introduction to it written by the lovely Amber Benson, who played Tara in BtVS.

3. Outlander #2: Dragonfly in Amber

I fell in love with Outlander when I started watching the tv show, and naturally I picked up the first book as soon as I could…and then I hinted that I wanted the next one for Christmas and my wish came through. I’d love to read it but it’s so thick and I’m in the middle of my exams so I’m scared to pick it up in case I won’t be able to stop reading it. But come vacation, and I’ll read it through in a few days :)

4. Kingdom Hearts 2 for PS3

My boyfriend got this game for me as a present because when I was younger I obsessed over Kingdom Hearts and I have to say that I really still like them a lot. We got the first game as well when it came out on PS3 and that’s why we got this too. We just haven’t really had the time to play it through yet (we’re maybe halfway through) because you really should have at least a few hours to spare when you start gaming…

5. Stanley Kubrick Bluray collection

This I actually got for my boyfriend as a Christmas present and we’ve been meaning to watch all the movies but have only gone through a couple so far.

5 Fandom Friday: Funko Pop Figures

It’s time for another 5 Fandom Friday linkup post! If you want more information on the linkup, check out The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. And please join the linkup if you’re at all interested, it’s a lot of fun!

So, this week’s topic was our favorite Funko Pop figures, which I have dutifully listed below :D

I have to admit that I don’t actually have any Funko Pop figures (this is one of the problems of living in Finland…we have nothing cool here). BUT, if I could get my hands on some of them, these following ones are my absolute favorites!

My Favorite Funko Pop Figures:

1. Willow Rosenberg from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I even wrote my BA thesis based on Willow (and BtVS in general) so I just love this little Willow figure. She’s always been one of my favorite characters in a TV series EVER. (I also liked the Buffy and Spike figures…)

2. Smaug from the Hobbit

How cute is this one?! I’ve been a fan of Tolkien ever since I was a kid and Smaug is a great character…also, dragons rule.

3. Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones

Did I already mention that dragons rule? …well then I guess it’s obvious why I’d want to have also the mother of dragons ;) Daenerys is so kick-ass and I like strong female characters. And Game of Thrones.

4. Sookie Stackhouse from True Blood

I really love True Blood so this would be perfect for me. Sookie is fun and strong, which are qualities I like.

5. baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy

How could I not want this cutie?! Groot is adorable. Period.

Which ones are your favorites? Do you own any of these figures? :)

5 Fandom Friday: Conventions

5fandomfriday
I decided to finally start participating in 5 Fandom Friday: a weekly linkup hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. Considering my love for fandoms, I just had to start participating (before I’ve always been too busy).

I just love the idea of conventions, they’re so great for meeting like-minded people and they have such a sense of community! Unfortunately, we hardly have any here in Finland but it’s my goal to someday go to a proper huge convention either in the UK or the States.

5 Fandom Friday: Conventions I’ve been to or wish to attend

Animecon: A Finnish anime convention with so much fun stuff to do! From video editing and cosplay contests to dance lessons and art shows, this is the place to be if you like Japan-stuff! I have gone couple of times and it’s always a lot of fun.

Tracon: another Finnish anime convention with a very similar style to Animecon. I’ve usually found that Animecon has a better, friendlier atmosphere though. But both are fab!

Finncona free science fiction and fantasy literature convention in Finland, that changes location from one city to another every year. I’ve been there a few times and I just love the atmosphere. No better place for a bibliophile!

Charmed Convention: There’s a Charmed convention that has been organized a few times (if I remember correctly) in Paris and I love love love Charmed so obviously I’d LOVE to go!

Any Comic Con or Doctor Who convention: I think it’s obvious why I’d want to go to a Comic Con – they’re the best conventions! And there’s so much to see (I always read the programs even though I don’t ever get to go – boo to living in Finland!). Also, anything Doctor Who related is amazing in my books!
