My Geeky Desires

Welcome to my new feature on the blog. After many hours of thinking about something to geek up the blog, this time includes spamming Heather from Bookobsessed(thanks again hon!), I came up with an idea to solve this problem. Most people know that I always find some strange things in the Internet I instantaneous adore. Most times these things are a bit strange and very much geeky but I love them nonetheless. So I thought I will share my addiction with you and will show you my love of the week here in this post. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

My first Geeky Desire is a real addiction you all have probably noticed. I love the Weighted Companion Cube. For all the none geeks, the WCC is of a computer game called Portal(=one of the best games ever) and it plays a special role in this game. First time I saw it I fell in love and since then it’s my little guilty pleasure. I just can’t stop searching the net about it. Here are my favorite findings:

I found these wonderful earrings here and I so want them. Aren’t they cute?

And they would match perfectely with this gorgeous necklace i found on Etsy:

So what do think?

Love the new design for the blog (but you already know that hehe)
I voted for the earrings because they are too cute!
I didn't know what the WCC was about so i learned something today ;)
I like the idea of 'My Geeky Desires' posts, i can't wait to see what you got in stores for us. Me love the geeky stuff!

Cool new blog :D
I am sorry to say I had to go for the what are you thinking.

Wendy November 4, 2009 at 9:30 PM  

I love your geekiness, Susi!! :) I think both are insanely cute but specially the earrings! SOO cute!

Shellie (Layers of Thought) November 4, 2009 at 9:48 PM  

These are so perfect for you!
What are they????

Lea November 5, 2009 at 3:04 AM  

I love the new banner Susi, the blog looks great!

Gee, everyone is doing polls today.. lol

I think the necklace and ear rings are um perfect!


Donna [Fantasy Dreamer's Ramblings] November 5, 2009 at 4:04 AM  

I like the necklace and earrings cuz they are different. That's a bit of amazing that you found the earrings to match the necklace in two different places.

Okay, I'm a certifiable geek but I've never heard of WWC. You puzzled me there! LOL! Now I'm off to check out WWC.

I like this new feature. Keep sharing. And the new look here is fab!

@pattepoilue Thanks hon. I like it too. Have some nice things planned for the next few weeks *evil grin*

@Blodeuedd Thanks and it would be sad if we all liked the same things.

@Wendy I love the earrings too. So lovely!

@Shellie Both are made of polymer clay or do you mean what the Weighted Companion Cube is?

@Lea Thanks hon and I noticed this too.LOL

@Donna I was a little shocked myself that there are so many merchandise products for the WCC. The list seems to be endless. Not only me that crazy. You should definitely try out Portal. It's totally different to all the other games- like a big funny puzzle.
And thanks, I like the new look too.

Shellie (Layers of Thought) November 5, 2009 at 3:11 PM  

Yes what is the WWC? Is it an element of an online game called portal that you play? If I google it will it come up?
I also agree I like the new design of your site. :)

SusiSunshine November 5, 2009 at 3:26 PM  

It's a non online computer game. It was include in the Orange Box of Half-Life 2 as a little extra. I think there are a millions of fan-pages out there. The game was really creative. It's about escaping a facility ruled by a crazy and quite funny AI with the use of a new weapon. The weapon can make portals from one place to another. You have to find solutions to get throw all the rooms using this weapon and you meet the companion cube on your way out. I would have never played this one cuz I don't like shooters like Half-Life but I gave it as a pressie to bf and couldn't get enough of it.
I hope that made sense.

Here’s a link describing the game.

Shellie (Layers of Thought) November 5, 2009 at 3:51 PM  

Thanks - looks interesting, not sure if I would like it though but then I thought I would not like twitter.
It looks like it could be addictive.
I play World of Warcraft sometime.. I've lost month from my life because of that

SusiSunshine November 5, 2009 at 4:00 PM  

@Shellie Never played WoW cuz I'm afraid to get addicted. And paying for it every month just freaks me out. Nope, no WoW for me! LOL

Shellie (Layers of Thought) November 5, 2009 at 4:01 PM  

Well if you change your mind let me know...:)

Ali November 5, 2009 at 6:50 PM  

Finally... I've been trying to comment since yesterday, lol. Dude, I am now obsessed with getting the Portal game, lol. I love both the earring and necklace :)

Smokinhotbooks November 5, 2009 at 7:29 PM  

Oh my god, super cute. I love this new concept *thumbs up*

SusiSunshine November 5, 2009 at 10:44 PM  

@Ali Hope you and BF have fun with Portal. Enjoy!

@Smokinhotbooks Yeah I think so too and Thanks!

Love the new geeky feature! And your header is awesome! :)

SusiSunshine November 7, 2009 at 4:57 PM  

@Alexia now I'm blushing. Thanks hon!

I think that I have to have these earrings now! I just noticed they also have the most adorable looking super mario piranha plants that I also totally need!
