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.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
