The Geeks have it at our house. Gaming night is every night and I am apt to find small plastic creatures and dice on the table. What is odd, is that no one has played a game on that table for some time. I’m thinking they use the table to empty their pockets. After all, they use their beds for gaming.
This past December, while Intelligent teacher daughter awaited the full cast of Big Bang Action figures (she is so disappointed that they are not making these yet), Gaffer received most of his gifts via ThinkGeek :: Find Stuff. After opening a Vader bank, Vader light sabre chopsticks, Star Wars Ultimate Blueprint book, a light up die, a Dexter Action Figure and assorted other items from ThinkGeek, he looked up, beamed a huge smile and said, “It’s, it’s like a Geeky Christmas. THANK YOU!”
In fact, I had to place a second order to finish off gifts for three people from ThinkGeek. My Geek points are adding up and I literally did 95% of my shopping online. It is difficult to find a Hawaiian shirt in Brown County, Indiana, and eBay was my source for Vintage Hat Pins. It was soooooo relaxing.
I am not a big shopper. The most fun I ever had shopping was years ago and the only time I ever shopped on the day after Thanksgiving. I went to the mall, in Casper, Wyoming with my mother, and two daughters. We didn’t buy much but we had fun.
I would like to add that every year Intelligent Daughter has to mail a package to us after Christmas of all the things the boys have left. It usually ranges from gifts to cell phone charger cords to socks. This year, NADA, nothing, not one single thing was left behind.
As for me, I just received my Birthday present, early, from mom and husband. I have a new Kodak PlaySport camera. I have found out some interesting things. They only give minimal instructions, but it is amazingly easy to use. And, the important lesson, in testing, do not film your own face. If I have to see my face from that angle and light again, I will have to wear a paper bag at all times. LOVE memory chips. Erased that one! Twice!
A ThinkGeeky Christmas was had by all.
