Friday Link Dump: Thor, Audiobooks and The OC

-This blog features recipes inspired by Game of Thrones. Totally want my own feast now. Plus Flavorwire discusses the sexism and violence in Game of Thrones - and why it's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm inclined to agree.

-I am so freaking excited for Thor: The Dark World. The trailer looks amazeballs. And so does Chris Hemsworth pretty hair.

-This video features some awesome quotes about how to get over writer's block. How timely for me.

-A clever The Lizzie Bennet Diaries fan created a LBD-themed Monopoly that you can download for free.

-BuzzFeed compiled a list of audiobooks read by celebs. I need to get me some of these.

-I actually didn't know a lot of these Harry Potter movie facts. Fun!

-Disney characters know how to throw shade. Totally going to use some of these next time I get into an argument.

-Meanwhile, this talented GIF creator puts moving Disney characters against real backdrops with magical results.

-Max Irons photo gallery. Need I say more?

-Apparently Downton Abbey season four will feature some new love interests for Lady Mary. And I want to watch it less and less.

-This list of the best TV friendships is brilliant. Troy and Abed, Lorelai and Rory AND Seth and Ryan? Yes, please. Plus Junkee lists their top five The O.C. episodes and I can't believe it's been 10 years since it started.

-Here's some GIFs of kids being awesome. 

-This Tumblr features adorable and funny illustrations. Love.


  1. I loooooove recipes inspired by books/TV shows/movies and you can bet I'll be trying my hand at making some of them too!

    As for the audiobooks... I'm sort of surprised they left out World War Z! It's read by a host of famous folks (Henry Rollins, Mark Hammill, Carl & Rob Reiner, Alfred Molina and Nathan Fillion to name a few). Plus the book is AH-MAZING!

  2. I'm excited for Thor too! Gosh he's hot =D

    Love the Disney gifs. Mushu is one of my favorite Disney characters. I love that line. I've actually tried to use that one in conversations before. My sister and I will often say Disney quotes to each other lol.

    Actually one of my new favorites is from Epic when Mub says, "You think she'd want you? Look at yourself! Oh, that's right you can't. Because you eyeballs are stuck all the way inside your head. What's wrong flat face, you gonna cry? You want me to call your flat face mommy?" Mub is so funny!

    1. Thor is so freaking hot!
      I haven't seen Epic. I'll have to check it out!

  3. Downton Abbey... hmm... after the season final of three I decided, amid horrified tears and exhultations of NO NO NO NO WHY NO NOPE NO I decided I wouldn't continue to watch it. I think it's unhealthy to be so attached to something, for me at least, that it ellicts THAT kind of reaponse. I don't think I've ever cried like that whilst watching something- or ever cried whilst watching something, period.

    1. Yeah. I think I'll still watch it. Well, at least the first episode. But I was so mad at season 3. It was not what I signed up for!

  4. I'm really enjoying the OC love-I remember watching that first episode and being hooked from the get-go. Then each season got less and less to my taste until I quit in the third. I really want to go marathon the first season now!

    1. I know, I remember watching the first ep too! The fourth season was terrible but I still watched it haha.
