You had me at taxidermy…

The countdown to the December holidays has begun. And while work is going to pick up before it calms down,  sometimes you just have to fly your freak flag. And this week I’m at full mast. Laugh at some really bad taxidermy, some even funnier tweets (one involving a non-taxidermied badger), find out which Hogwarts house you belong to and meet who I hope will one day become my BFF, the laziest best guy ever.

Which Hogwarts house do you belong to?

If you’re a huge Harry Potter fan, you’d have heard of Pottermore and know which house you belong to. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and didn’t know. So I took the test and sadly got sorted into Hufflepuff (the shame). But I can now redeem myself with Muggle Library Candles that reveal your house.

Thank you all SO much for 10k followers – I can’t believe we’ve already hit 10.1k! The support means everything to us. Here is what each of the houses look like once you are sorted! As each candle is hand made, time varies on how long it takes to really see what house you’ve been sorted into. On average, it takes about 1-2 hours until there’s enough magic to sort you! The longer the candle burns, the more magic there is, which means the color will be deeper the longer it burns! ✨✨✨ #Bookstagram #instabooks #bibliophile #books #booklover #bookish #booknerd #bookgeek #bookaholic #bookaddict #currentread #currentlyreading #reading #igreads #potterhead #harrypotter #gryffindor #bookworm #epicreads #funkopop #ireadya #bookphotography #bookishcandles #candles #etsy #etsyshop #etsyseller

Your favourite NASA women are now in LEGO form

I love LEGO and just when I thought they couldn’t get any cooler, they release this. That reminds me I need to watch the Ninjago LEGO movie, apparently, it’s not great but I’m still going to check it out.

Crap taxidermy

I’m a huge fan of crap taxidermy. There’s something about it that makes me laugh.

So you can imagine my delight when I discovered this fun fact.

This guy is all of us and is winning at life

While my first thought was “What is this world coming to” my second thought was “Why didn’t I think of that”! This guy is my spirit animal.

Microwave cooking taken to a whole new level

Gone are the days of reheating food or making popcorn. Microwaves just got an upgrade and according to Asics will be able to bake your next pair of shoes.

Just in case you weren’t sure…

This has been cracking me up so much. It’s still funny.
