My wife got me a bunch of fun stuff from Think Geek! Including:
-Giant Microbe christmas tree ornaments
-Portal 2 book-ends
-Portal 2 coasters (the warning symbols, like Hard Light Bridge, Watch Out For Falling Weighted Cubes, Aerial Faith Plate, etc.)
-A Big Bang Theory shirt (the rules for Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock)
She also got me a fun card game, a lithograph of the original Star Wars movie poster, and some fun books.
For the books, it was funny. The books were cheap (three for a dollar), and one was Star Wars. She didn't think I owned it, but figured it didn't matter, since it was 30 cents. Turned out it was a First Edition of Splinter of the Mind's Eye!
I bought my wife a book she wanted, two tops from Smart Set, and a pair of games (we both love card- and board-games), and I made a Christmas tree ornament using a picture of us in Bern.
Also, I wanted to get her tickets to West Side Story, but tickets aren't on sale till January 30. So I made an invitation (in the style of Dinosaur Comics, www.qwantz.com). I traced the picture from my PC monitor, since my printer was empty lol, and then filled it in by hand. "DATE NIGHT --- AS SHE IS PLAYED". (anyone who reads Dinosaur Comics will find it funny).
Merry Christmas to everyone!
Or, Happy Newton-mas, as appropriate.
It was the year of fire… the year of destruction… the year we took back what was ours.
It was the year of rebirth… the year of great sadness… the year of pain… and the year of joy.
It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed.
The year is 2261.
The place: Babylon 5.
