Last week, I celebrated my 30th birthday, and for this milestone I decided against the big party, opting instead for some major geeky gifts. Here I share my horde with our readers, hopefully giving some like-minded pop-culture fanatics a few ideas for when their next birthdays roll around.
1. Spiderman Snuggie (Gifts for the Geek):
Its dorky, in questionable taste, and probably the only thing that we can say makes us both warm and cool at the same time (hehe). And it was the last one so of course I had to grab it!!! There was also an elmo version of this for sale too.
2. William Shatner “Shat Happens” Tee (Gifts for the Geek):
Probably sums up Shatner’s attitude to the fate of his latest television venture “$h*! My Dad Says”
3. Dr Who sonic screwdrivers (Popcultcha):
Ok I think I know what film nerd is planning for his next costume……..
4. Potty paper rolls (Global Gear):
Ok my main reason for buying this is to keep guests occupied while they are…umm..occupied, therefore preventing the inevitable peek through our bathroom cabinets. Ok I’m kidding, really I thought they was funny.
5. Pop tarts in cherry flavour (Kings Comics [we think]):
(no picture available…. long since consumed)
Mmm artificial goodness……..ok still too sweet for me, but like an addict, I can’t help buying some whenever I see them on sale. Maybe a psychological response to my mother denying these to me as a child? Who knows?
6. 4 pack of Tru Blood (Popcultcha):
This stuff just tastes goods, bought before, will buy again.
7. Batman – Year One:
A graphic novel Film Nerd has wanted for some time… was sold out by Sunday morning!
Ok, that is it (aside from photos)!! Time to start saving for next year!
