I’m blessed with family and friends who know me well enough to give me some awesome geek gifts for Xmas this year. Thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you, in no particular order …
Frakkin Toaster T-Shirt
Freakgirl got me this awesome shirt, which I’m psyched to wear at the NY ComicCon in February, where folks aren’t shy about telling you when they like your t-shirt. If you don’t understand the joke, I’m not explaining it to you — just trust me that it’s funny.
Iron Man DVD Set with 3 Bobble Heads
Freakgirl gave me this too — a two-disc set, which includes bobble heads for the Mark 1, Mark 2, and Mark 3 suits. Trifecta! I look forward to playing with the bobble heads while I watch the DVD extras one day soon. You know, after I watch the movie five more times.
Lego Indiana Jones for Wii
This gift from the FreakParents satisfies three of the cornerstones of my existence — Legos, video games, and Indiana Jones. Another trifecta! I’m a big fan of the Lego Star Wars games, and so far, this one hasn’t disappointed.
Star Wars Collector Mug Set
FreakSis and FreakBro-In-Law got me this, and the best thing about it is that it’s all old school original trilogy characters. Because seriously — who but a 10 year old would want to drink anything out of a cup with Jar Jar on it. (Apologies to those who like Jar Jar … I have Phantom Menace issues.)
Some ridiculously generous friends got us the Wii Fit. Not sure if there are any cool sci-fi games that work with the board just yet … but this should at least give me a way to stay in shape while playing video games. You don’t realize just how uncoordinated you are until you try to ski or tightrope walk on this thing.
So what were YOUR favorite geek gifts this year?
