J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World Loot Crate #1

Recently, Coleman surprised me with the first official J.K. Rowling Wizarding World Loot Crate. When it was announced in early October, I was very upset that I didn’t get to order it for myself. Little did I know, Coleman had already ordered it for me. It arrived in mid-November, just in time for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. In fact, it arrived at our doorstep the exact evening we were going to see the film.

Each crate has 5 – 7 items. When the crate is being ordered it will ask your t-shirt size and Hogwarts house affiliation. Below are some photos of what I got in the first box. The owl plushie (Ron Weasley’s Pigwidgeon) is the softest plushie I have ever owned. As you can see, most of the items in this first box were centered around Fantastic Beasts.

The crate ships bi-monthly (each odd numbered month) and is around $40 (or a little less, if you order recurring shipments). Order your own here:

New critter and critter part!

Also for Decemberween I received a taxidermy duckling (who I have named Captain von Quack) and a beautiful male springbok horn. They are quite at home with everyone else:

Am I this predictable?

Know what? I’m totally okay with being predictable because then I get some awesome fucking gifts!

Like a homemade book box:


And a shirt with a cat in a spacesuit riding a rocket. I will henceforth refer to this as my pussy-rocket shirt:

More awesome and hilarious gift posts soon!

Polka Dot Moratorium

This is a picture of my favorite bathing suit:

It’s very cute. I look very cute in it. So much so, that I have taken pictures in it when I was in Palm Springs and have shared those photos with friends and family.

Somehow this has given the people the go ahead to purchase me things that are red with white polka dots.

Three of these items (gift bag, “oh what fun” panties, cupcake papers) came to me this Christmas. I like these things. These things are cute and funny.

And I’m putting a stop to it right now. I like polka dots. I want to continue to like polka dots. Don’t give me any more shit with polka dots on it. I don’t want to be that person that liked that thing with cows on it and then someone buys me something else with a cow on it which is like, alright, but then it becomes a “thing” where people give me shit with cows on it and all of a sudden I’m 60 years old and I have a house full of crap that has cows on it or looks like a cow or moo’s and I grow not only to hate cows but to hate the people who think of me as “The Cow Lady.”

I don’t want to be the polka dot lady.
