Hello, my dear geeky readers! I hope that, wherever you are, you are enjoying some time off for the holidays. If you’re near Philadelphia, then you’re also enjoying this freezing cold slushy rain that I just know really wants to be snow. Come on, slushy rain! You can do it! Just a few degrees colder…

Anyway! Let’s talk about what I’ve seen in the last week that hit me right in my geeky bone. I’m fairly certain I’ve already mentioned the Mechromancer hoody Gearbox is selling, but there’s also a great Borderlands Vault Hunter sweatshirt over at Shirtasaurus. They’ve got plenty of cute t-shirts there, too, including Hello Stormtrooper, Playkachu, and 1,000 Needles. And let’s not forget the Ask Me about My Facehugger shirt at Amazon. I think I might need that.

T-shirts not your thing right now? You could get this awesome Aarghhh Necklace from Tatty Devine. Might I also recommend the Volume Brooch? It goes to 11.

Want to see something amazing? The Kickstarter for Kingdom Death: Monster is funding an incredibly detailed horror board game. They’re already well past their goal, and with good reason: the quality of the miniatures alone is enough to sell the product, but if you watch the video, you’ll see that the gameplay is fantastic as well. $100 will net you the game in its entirety, but if you take a look at some of those expansions, like the Dung Beetle Knight and the Flower Knight, you might end up spending much more than that. Or you could be way less serious and read this book of cat poetry.

What else, you ask? Well, if you’re looking for cute, check out the new Gingerbread Dumpling mini vinyl, one of the newest toys over in the Shawnimals store. Aren’t familiar with Shawnimals? Go screech around the website for a few minutes, or just get the Ninjatown DS game. They’ve also got new and improved Ninjatown zipper charms, and blind box Pocket Pork Dumplings. Must… resist… buying… toys…

Let me wrap this up with some more cute stuff that I love. Want to get your child into Dungeons and Dragons? Artist James Stowe has created these amazing character sheets for kids. He plays with his own children, using these beautiful sheets, as well as lots of other cool stuff over at his blog. An awesome artist I’ve discovered more recently is Madeleine Flores, whose Post-it-Love-Notes make me cry a little. She also answers questions for girls, like How to Dress for Your Body Type.

That’s all for this week, folks! Tune in next week for more geekiness, and have a safe and happy New Year!
