We haven’t had much of a winter here so I think I have only had to reach for a blanket twice this season, but I have to admit that my blanket isn’t as cool as this TARDIS blanket.  I use a snuggie to stay warm on those cold days and while I can no longer imagine using a blanket without sleeves, if I had to have a blanket without sleeves, it would definitely be this awesome TARDIS blanket.

This crocheted TARDIS blanket was created by Kristi for her friend and it measures 130cm (at the narrowest) by 230cm, not including the light.  From design to finish, it took two months to make which I would say was time very well spent.  However I think my favorite part has to be that the light and windows glow in the dark!

I wish I had the arts and crafts skills to make something like this although I fear if I started to crochet blankets, my man card might be revoked.

Despite the cold environment that I work in during the winter, I have never been one to wear a scarf.  As I get older and the cold bothers me more than it used to, I am starting to think that having a scarf might not be such a bad idea.  However, if there is one thing that would definitely push me over the edge and get me to start wearing one, it would be an optical illusion TARDIS scarf!

This mind blowing Doctor Who optical illusion scarf was created by Brilliant Knit Wit.  If you look at the scarf straight on, it appears to be just a blue and white stripped scarf, but when you look at it from an angle, you can see the TARDIS appear!  I didn’t even know something like this was possible on a scarf or how it is done, but it is amazing!  I want this scarf!

Speaking of Doctor Who scarfs, today (Wednesday, Feb 6, 2013) is the last day to enter to a 4th Doctor scarf so go enter the caption contest before its too late!

Futurama is by far the best cartoon ever made and if you disagree, you can bite my shiny metal ass!  Seriously, having grown up in the 90s, there are a ton of cartoons that I love, but Futurama is by far my favorite.  It may not be as kid oriented as many of the cartoons I grew up on, but even when I go back and watch old cartoons from my childhood, none can compare to Futurama.

Well, apparently I am not the only one with a love for Futurama as some cool guy got these awesome Futurama tattoos on his feet.  One one foot is That Guy, the businessman that froze himself while the other foot has Fry lighting the That Guy’s cigar.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who these feet belong to or who inked these awesome and brilliantly colored Futurama tattoos, so if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve!

Speaking of Futurama tattoos, if you love the ones below, I suggest you check out the amazing Zoidberg tattoo I posted in the past as well as the religious Zoidberg tattoo.

Whether it is in the comments, on twitter or on Facebook, it seems like somebody always makes the “is it bigger on the inside?” joke whenever I post something TARDIS related.  Its an appropriate joke for some posts but for many I feel like it is a little tired and overused.  However, once in a great while, there are actually cases where the TARDIS is bigger on the inside and this just happens to be one of them!

This awesome TARDIS that is the doorway to a home theater was created by friends of Reddit user holdingrabbits (not sure of the name of the friends to give them the credit the deserve).  Apparently the friend’s wife is a drama teacher with a talent for set design and decided to make this last summer.

I’m not sure what I am more jealous about, the fact that these people have a home theater and I don’t or the fact that they have a TARDIS entrance to a room in their house and I don’t.  Either way, I am green with envy.

While I think pocket watches are cool, classy and old fashioned, I have never had much of a desire to carry one.  I no longer even wear a watch since all of the gadgets I wear can tell me the time and frankly I don’t have the room in my pockets to even think about carrying a pocket watch.  However, if I ever decided to carry a pocket watch, I want it to be this amazing steampunk Iron Man pocket watch.

This awesome Iron Man steampunk pocket watch was created by designer Adi Simon.  You can see the steampunk style gears on the inside and it lights up like Iron Man’s arc reactor.  What can be cooler than that?!

I kind of wish this was available to buy because this would be a pretty cool conversation piece even if I didn’t carry it everywhere I went.

Although I have had a lot of suckers in my day, I have to admit that I have never had a lollipop.  Its not that I wouldn’t mind trying one (I would love to), its just that nobody has ever offered me one and its not something I ever think about picking up when I am in a candy store.  However, if I ever find a candy store with a Death Star lollipop like the one below, I will definitely get one!

Although its not in a candy, you can get these Death Star lollipops on Etsy!  Star Wars fan and Etsy seller designerlollipop is selling this set of 6 Death Star lollipops for $12.

In case you needed another reason to get these awesome Death Star lollipops, they are marshmallow flavored!  I know I definitely want a marshmallow flavored Death Star!
