Every year I like to do a recap of the nerd-haul I got for Christmas, because what better time of year to celebrate all your fandoms?
This one was a super find for me. I’ve been wanting a Mew figurine since I was 12. I managed to get a Mewtwo a few years back (my other favorite Pokemon) but never found a good Mew, until I saw this sitting in a kiosk in the middle of a Seattle area mall. Best Christmas gift to myself ever.
I am so excited about this. It’s a steel model of a ship that we’ll be assembling, and it’ll look so cool when it’s finished. Pictures to come perhaps?
This one’s not really a gift. It’s my tradition to get a coffee mug every time I go to Seattle, so here’s this year’s. I also managed to get into the original Starbucks at Pike Place, and while I got no pictures or commemorative memorabilia, I did get a coffee. It’s a caramel brulée latte I will never forget.
This shirt is just great. Poli and I like to support each other’s fandoms, so here is his contribution to mine. I never considered myself a super-fan of the Big Bang Theory until I got this shirt. Now I’m a super-fan. Sheldon A++ would buy again.
And last but not least is the gift you can’t see, but it is responsible for this entire post. I got a lovely digital camera to replace my old beat up one that can’t hold a charge (and my iPod touch camera which had replaced that one) so now I get to take lots of awesome pictures. Mostly of my cats and nerd toys, but still. They’ll be great quality!
Hope your season was nerdy and awesome!
