Nothing says ‘I love Lord of the Rings’ quite like a cake that looks like the One Ring.  If you can’t get a giant cake like the Dark Tower cake with the Eye of Sauron that I posted back in December, a One Ring cake would still work great for any Lord of the Rings viewing parties (although I would have more than just cake because the movies are really long and people are going to get hungry).

This amazing Lord of the Rings inspired One Ring cake was made by the obviously talented cake maker the Cake Whisperer.  I don’t know what kind of occasion this cake was made for but I’m sure whoever got to eat it was really happy.  Too bad they didn’t send me a piece.

Are you a gamer that loves to wear a pair of thongs (the kind for your feet) when you are at the pool or a public shower like the one at the gym?  If so, then I think I may have found the perfect pair for you!  Nothing says I love retro video games quite like wearing Pac-Man games on your feet!

Although these awesome Havaianas Pac-Man thongs are available to buy, you might have some issues ordering them.  You can order these Pac-Man thongs from this site although judging by the domain, the site is from Brazil and unless you are good with their language, you might have some issues getting them ordered or figuring out just how much you are going to have to pay for them.  Since I only speak English and some Klingon, I can’t even figure out if they ship internationally so if somebody can translate and let us know more details in the comments below, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks to all of the holiday weight I put on a couple of months ago (I think everybody just made more cookies and stuff than usual this year), I have decided to cut out the sweets and any unnecessary calories until I am no longer in danger of having to buy all new pants that are bigger than my current ones.  However, while I may be avoiding the consumption of sweets, I still love looking at them, especially when they are geeky!

Speaking of geeky cupcakes, Cake Central member Yokko made this amazing Spock cupcake!  I’m not sure how I feel about the black look of the cupcake itself but the handmade Spock cupcake topper is amazing!  I’d say it turned out really well!

Remember, if you hope to live long and prosper, avoid the sweets!

It seems like pretty much everybody is addicted to coffee these days.  Everybody I have ever known drinks it except me.  When I tell people that I don’t drink coffee (I don’t like hot drinks in general), I get a lot of strange looks and shocked reactions.  People seem to have a hard time believing that a person can get going in the morning without coffee but I am one who can.

However, for those who need caffeine to get going and prefer to use a french press rather than stop by Starbucks, I think I may have found the perfect french press cozy for you, especially if you love Doctor Who!

If you have some knitting skills or know somebody that does, you can get the pattern to make this fantastic Dalek french press cozy for free thanks to ravelry user Coryna Blasko.  If you want the pattern, head here to get it.

Being a big lover of cats and having a couple myself, it is safe to say I am a big fan of cool cat trees.  In the past, I have posted some really cool ones like the Star Trek cat tree (my favorite) and even a TARDIS cat playhouse.  Well, now we can add Super Mario Bros to the list with this cat tree that any cat is sure to love!

Super Mario Bros fan and Instructables user Geckoo_Designs created this amazing Super Mario Bros cat tree for their cat.  Although I think the lighting of this picture is a little poor to be able to get a really good look at the cat tree, it is good enough.

For those interested in making their own Super Mario Bros cat tree, although its not up yet, Geckoo_Designs plans on putting up a guide for building your own.  The guide is supposed to be up within the next week so keep an eye on his Instructables account if you want to find out how you can tackle this DIY Super Mario Bros cat tree.

Star Trek Nail Tattoos [pic]

Until today, I have never heard of fingernail tattoos before.  I have heard of fake fingernails and I have posted a ton of amazing fingernail art paint jobs that people have done both on here and my other blog, Fanboy Fashion, but I have never come across the term nail tattoos before today.  While I may not be that familiar with them, if the Star Trek nail tattoos below are any indication, they are an awesome idea!

Etsy seller originails is selling these awesome Star Trek fingernail tattoos for $4.76. You get a sheet of these things so it seems like a pretty good price, especially if you love Spock, the Vulcan solute or the Klingons.

In case you aren’t familiar with fingernail tattoos, from what I can tell of the instructions for putting them on, they are kind of like a decal that you can put on top of your painted nails.
