No-El of the Phantom Zone.

Nephila pilipes from Papua New Guinea. From fordmadoxfraud & elladorian. I like the way this spider is laid out-- the backing paper & the genus & species name at the bottom. On the back, it has a little blurb about how the insects & arachnids from this place are all raised in cruelty free farms by native peoples, so they don't have to, you know, strip mine or slash & burn their land, or raise cattle, or anything. Also, I have officially retconned my Dark Lord of the Sith origin. If Luke Skywalker grew up on a moisture farm, than you can damn well believe I grew up on a spider farm! Then David & I cracked ourselves up making jokes about it. "What I really need is a droid who understands the binary language of spider incubators!"

A Star Wars pillow from Jenny! I don't know where we'll put it, but I am excited to find out! Does it go on the bed with the other throw pillows? I like that Jenny supports making our home as geeky as I am. Well, as we are; it isn't like she isn't a huge nerd, too, just a different stripe in some categories. This came from "Pottery Barn Kids," which says a lot. I often joke that my interests are basically the same as an eight year old's. I stand by that.

Conan the Barbarian comics! From David & Maggie. I had been inspired by Grognardia last night to buy a Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser book & a Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser comic...only to remember that I already had the Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser comic book, & rush to cancel it! That sort of prefigured this-- I haven't read the Conan comic books, & they are widely proclaimed to be amazing, so I am excited. I totally expect these to be pulpy kick-ass goodness.

Epic Mickey! I'm really looking forward to this. I've been excited ever since they announced that there would be an evil steampunk game set in a mirror-mirror Disney World. The concept seems weird-- all about painting & stripping paint, tints & turps. I haven't popped this in yet-- we are back to watching Avatar: the Last Airbender, & are now on the first spirit world episode-- but I am looking forward to it. Also, talking about Kingdom Hearts in relationship to this is pretty funny-- "It is basically a game where Cloud Strife hangs out with Goofy & Sephiroth hangs out with Jack Skellington. If you are into that kind of thing, then it is awesome." Thanks Jenny!

Another present from Jenny! Maggie gave me a mate gourd a few years ago, but then earlier this year it fell & cracked, rendering me yerba mate-less! So this year, Jenny got me a replacement. Exciting! I still have to cure it & stuff. Okay-- I'm being yelled at to come drink bloody maries & eat breakfast, so there. Xmas loot!
