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!

To be completely honest, I have never even heard of a proposal cake before seeing this Doctor Who proposal cake.  I have heard of engagement rings and whatnot to celebrate the popping of the question but a proposal cake?!  This idea just seems strange.  I’m not complaining as any excuse for cake is a good excuse for me, I just think it is a little odd… or ood.

Well, if you are going to do something less traditional like a proposal cake, you might as well do it right and have an incredible Doctor Who cake made for the event!

The awesome bakers over at Nerdache Cakes (who I have featured many times in the past which you can find by searching for them on the right) were the creators of this amazing Doctor Who cake that features various iconic bits of Who including the TARDIS and the 4th Doctor’s scarf.  Speaking of the 4th Doctor’s scarf, we are running a caption contest to win your own 4th Doctors scarf.  It ends Wednesday, February 6, 2013 so go enter before its too late!  Anyway…

The TARDIS (the real “cake” part of this cake) is banana cake with dark chocolate crunch bits and ganache layers while the two figures are made of fondant.  I’ve never had a banana cake before but it sure sounds and looks yummy!

Even though I can’t say I am a huge fan of snow, I really wish we were getting some this winter.  It shouldn’t be this dry in Colorado in the winter!  We got 3″ here yesterday but that is all we have had in probably more than a month which is really bad because we need the snow to have enough water for the rest of the year.

Well, there are some lucky people that still seem to be getting plenty of snow or at least enough to make a giant Darth Vader snow sculpture.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made this awesome Darth Vader head snow sculpture (if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve), but I think they did a great job!  I would almost rank this up there with the Darth Vader and R2-D2 snow sculptures (which I suggest you check out) I posted in the past.  It might not be quite as detailed but it is still really cool.  And big!

When it comes to plants, I’m not really the person you would want looking after them.  I have a remarkable skill for killing even the toughest plants.  The fact that I even have a lawn is quite amazing considering I can’t seem to keep much else alive.  Well, even though I may never have a green thumb, I still like the idea of a TARDIS flower pot!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who this awesome Doctor Who inspired TARDIS flower pot belongs to (if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them credit), but it is a really cool idea!  The best part is that it looks simple enough that anybody can make their own with a square pot and some paint.

If you have a TARDIS planter or see this and decide to make your own, share pictures with us in the comments below!
