Pin the glasses on John Green!

So hey, remember last summer, when I made this hilarious thing for our TFIOS Nerdfighter gathering, posted it to our Teen Central tumblr, and then JOHN GREEN REBLOGGED IT, thereby making my life for basically ever?

‘Cause yeah, it totally happened.

Anyways! A lot of people have asked about it, and of COURSE you may all steal it! Anything I put on this blog is fair game. This is not just bragging about my events; this is definitely information sharing, and that’s why the thing over on the left says ‘steal my stuff!’

I’ve emailed the basic image that I found online to create this (I traced all the pieces parts onto poster board and glued him together), but because it was laminated, I didn’t think I could scan it. WELL I WAS WRONG! I tried today and it WORKED, so here! Have the original. You’ll want to print on card stock if you can and laminate him, and resize then cut out the glasses in their entirety to get the full effect before laminating, but here you go. Please feel free to manipulate him however you please. The PDF is a bit small (11×17), but will work if you need it. Have fun!

Nerdfighter Gathering 2014

TFIOS has come & gone, and it was just fantastic, was it not? My teens are still raving about it. To celebrate the movie’s premiere, we held a Nerdfighter Gathering, and it was so, so much nerdy fun.

What’d we do?
YouTube playlist of a variety of TFIOS stuff & classic Vlogbrother videos
Hanklerfish hot potato; the kids got SO into this it was hilarious. The prize was just a fun size bag of plain M&Ms! I think we did it six times, to A Song about an Anglerfish.
– Book charms!
– TFIOS/Okay bracelets & keychains
– TFIOS cloud t-shirts
– Nerdfighter pins
– Prizes of print outs of various Nerdfighter art
– Pizza! It’s always the answer.
– NO EDGE four-square, which was especially fun because most of them had never even heard of it!
– Pin the Glasses on John Green (you might have seen it on Tumblr. John Green basically made my life by reblogging it to his own Tumblr; aaaaaah.)

To be honest, a lot of this stuff must sound like nonsense if you’re not pretty familiar with Nerdfighteria, but it was basically the highlight of my teen librarian experience. To get to be so nerdy with something I love so dearly was just so great. Here are some more pictures of the event in action!
