Happy Friday fangirls & fanboys! To celebrate this fabulous day, the start of the glorious weekend, I am going to participate in a Five Fandom Friday Challenge! What is FFF you ask? It’s a weekly challenge created by bloggers The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick to come up with a top 5 list to fit a geeky theme. My Fangirl Life doesn’t necessarily do it every week, but sometimes we want to hang out with the cool kids & join in the fun 🙂 You can click HERE to see what other FFFs we’ve taken part in.
This Friday: 5 Things in My Purse at All Times
When looking at this week’s Five Fandom Friday theme I felt a bit stuck. As a chronic large purse carrier you’d think I’d have all sorts of crazy things stowed away. However, I am also obsessive compulsive and can’t stand clutter, so I actually carry very little with me at any time. And then there’s the fact that I don’t always have a purse. In the course of one day I can switch from work bag to gym bag to hand bag and back again. This means the only thing consistently with me are (1) my keys, (2) hair ties, and (3) my wallet. That doesn’t make for a very exciting post. Then it hit me: My Wallet!
Although my wallet itself is a bit “boring” (just a plain black Matt & Nat clutch) and it is packed with practical things (like cash & my credit card), it also has a variety of random, and non-essential things scattered throughout. Or sometimes essential but also inherently fangirl-esque. So that leads me to my take on this week’s FFF: What’s in my Wallet?
Spoiler Alert: Some Nerdy Things.
1. Library Card
Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card! Any Arthur fans out there??? That was by far the best episode…at least the most memorable one. And perhaps that particular song is so memorable to me because I believe so wholeheartedly in the message. Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card! The EPL (Edmonton Public Library…aka the best city library ever) has the cutest cards. You get to pick the color (purple, obvi) and the saying (I wish I was an information ninja). So even though I also have the bar code on my phone, I always have the actual card with me too.
2. My Marvel Avengers ID
Did you know I was a Probationary member of the Avengers. Have been since June 11, 2014. Pretty cool, eh? This is actually from mine & Justine’s trip to Marvel’s Avengers Station, which was a special interactive exhibit of Avengers movie memorabilia that we saw in New York a few summers ago. I like to pretend it’s real though.
3. Reward or Membership Cards
I am a sucker for a membership card. You tell me I can earn points and I am throwing my email address down, even if I don’t know what the points are for. A few that seem relevant to this post are: (1) My Lego VIP card – because Lego is the bomb dot com, (2) My Fabricland Sewciety and Sephora VIB Rouge cards – a must for any cosplayer, and (3) my Cineplex Scene Member card – I currently have like 15 free movies worth of points.
4. Business Card from a Cute Apple Genius
Have you ever just went to the Apple Store purely to flirt with cute “geniuses”? It’s one of my favorite pastimes.
5. Oyster Card
This wouldn’t be that odd if I lived in London. However I do not. I live in Canada. I also haven’t been in London since 2011. Yet I still have this card in my wallet. I’ve probably changed wallets at least 3 times since I first got it on mine & Justine’s epic Europe backpacking trip, yet I can’t bring myself to get rid of it. #Memories
