Y'all get ready to do SQUEEing and AWWWWing over Offbeat Home & Life sponsor Mark Poulin's quirky and cute jewelry. From octopodes (or quadrapodes?), dogs and cats to sloths and dinosaurs… these pieces are guaranteed to be the cutest damn things you will see today. Ready to take the "I dare you not to say AWWWWW, while you check out this jewelry" challenge? Ready… go!
This is Offbeat Home's archive of geeky posts.
Can you believe we live in a world in which "Pi-inspired home decor" is an actual thing? Like this Pi-symbol shower curtain on which 4,600 digits of Pi are printed in blue and grey. It's stylish, functional, and so very geeky — I love it!
Yup, from shower curtains to cutlery, Pi has inspired a lot of home products, perfect to geek up any household…
My husband belongs to a Star Wars costuming group called the 501st, and I'm working on a costume so I can join, too. After going to a party at the home of another 501st member with a decked out Star Wars-themed garage, I decided that for my husband's birthday I'd give him a little Star Wars flair for our own garage. Since we have been talking about needing to organize our garage pretty much since day one, it made sense to combine Star Wars into our plans. And thus, the idea for the pegboards was born.
Over on Offbeat Families, reader Reva posed this question: "My daughter is planning her Bat Mitzvah and REALLY wants it to be Doctor Who-themed… but we have no idea how to pull this off.

Artist Steve Thomas got spot on two things I love above all: early/mid-century design and geek stuff. Tolkien-themed posters, Fallout-style propaganda, Sci-fi travelling ads… It's like Christmas, but only better.
My husband is a gamer. Not a random "whenever I'm feelin' it" kind of thing, but a serious GAMER. I, on the other hand, am most assuredly not. I know we can't be the only couple out here like this. It's inevitable in this day and age of gaming there are multitudes of gamer/non-gamer couples. Yet every single person I know has asked me at least once "How does that even work? If he's always on [insert game here] how is your relationship not suffering?!" Well, there are some very decidedly nice perks about gamers…
