“I know I always carry her with me, and to have a piece of her grace shine through me is a gift I will continually strive to earn.”
Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.
Pretty cool list of books (and DVDs) there :)
Nerdfighter Monopoly - started in the Adult Nerdfighters Facebook group
Features all Vlogbrothers-related channels as properties, John’s books instead of railroads, Hank’s albums instead of utilities, Decreasing World Suck instead of Community Chest, and Forgetting to be Awesome instead of Chance cards.
Also features the Evil Baby Orphanage instead of jail, DFTBA instead of free parking, and of course the Project for Awesome and Subbable.
Tokens would be French the Llama (llama in a beret), Hank’s guitar, Red Green (of poopy Nintendo fame), a giraffe, a Hanklerfish, a honey badger, baby Hitler, a puppy-sized elephant, crossed hands doing the nerdfighter gang sign, a pair of glasses, a video camera, and a microphone. It would be really cool to make 3D printed tokens, but they’ll probably end up needing to be printed along with property cards and everything else.
We are working on chance and community chest cards that feature such things as “Spend 15 hours in a Target, pay $50”, “Eat a blenderized happy meal, lose a turn”, and “Nerdfighters meet Kiva goal, collect $100.”
I would love to offer these somehow as perks for the Project for Awesome. Reblog so that maybe Hank will see this post.
This is such a great idea! Love it, love it!
Just finished watching TFIOS for the first time since opening night in theaters. Between this and reading This Star Won’t Go Out I am dehydrated, tear stained, puffy faced, and on the verge of an emotional train wreck. Send help….or tissues. Lots and lots of tissues.
Care package of tissues on its way!!! <3
One for Esther and one for Hazel.
Both so important.
John is interviewed for the upcoming PBS mini-series, “The Story of Cancer,” based on the book, The Emperor of Maladies. I am excited, because this is an amazing book, and I loved the history, science, and readability factor. But I ALSO love this article because John gets asked a question about Esther. “My friendship with Esther did make me rethink a lot of things…”
Bringin’ back nerdfighter notes! Bored in an airport bookstore? Or any bookstore (like you’d be bored in a bookstore)? Leave a nerdfighter note! Here we have a note by me, featuring the Great White Wall of Cow, being placed in Paper Towns, and a note by the amazing and airport-ridden unapologetically-speaking featuring French the Llama, to be place presently.
These are so good. Infinite high fives to you!
Love this! You can also leave “Esther Day” notes of love, anytime of year!
GeekyCon’s just released amazingly edited “live” version of Esther Day 2014 in Orlando, Florida! A magical night indeed
I am #donating my hair because #EstherDay is everyday. The need to tell the people around us we love them is constant; and so is the need to make kids with #cancer feel like themselves again, even if it’s just #hair. I have not had short hair for seven years but I gladly don it again to make someone’s #birthday or unbirthday the best day. They deserve this life more then a wish granting factory could give them. #tswgo #iloveyoutoo #onefootofhair #pantene #beautifullengths 💇😊💚🎆
Awesome! ”…because #EstherDay is everyday!”
