I saw this on eBay, and fell in love. Once I get re-established, I'm getting one ... no doubt about it.



Yuppers. A nixie clock.

What do you want? Show us ...

I always wanted one of those mini dart boards to put on my desk.

An authentic voodoo doll....not one of those French Quarter varieties that you can buy 3 for $10 but a REAL one......;)

Actually.....I would get a lot of use out of it so I can't really consider it useless.

A SpongeBob Squarepants action figure. I went to Wendy's just to get the Patrick water toy, but I want a Squidward and Spongebob too. Maybe a few Muppet figurines-

I want a Dilbert cubicle alarm. My co-worker has one. Whenever anyone walks into his cubicle it says "OutOutOut" or "Idiot Incoming".

I would like to complete my collection of "Where the Wild Things Are" toys, or maybe some mullethead figures.

My current toy is whatever elastic is closest to grab when I am on the phone.

I've never heard of this... but now I want one too!

I would also like to get an Edmonton Oilers metal zambonii... my Maple Leafs one brings me too much flak in this part of Canada. I used to have Tonka earth moving trucks... it made desk cleaning much more fun (put awful plans in front of earthmover... and push papers over edge into trash can).

Boba Fett is my favorite Star Wars character (and the Slave One is way cool too). Don't get me wrong.. that doesn't make you less of a geek, but other geeks identify with you. ;)

It's nice to know I'm among other geeks. :p

I had a Slave I when I was a kid...I wish I had hung on to it....
Maybe I could get this to expand my geekery....

Nice!

My mom and dad are moving for the first time in 20 years. I told them if they find any of my old star wars figures or ships (I had a lot of them!), that they are *not* to throw them away. *Crosses fingers and toes*.

If you could post the source of that little toy, most practicing planners would want to order one.

I also collect (for my office) those teeny versions of real toys, like a little key-chain Bop-It, Battleship, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, etc. Most of them work just like the real thing, and amazingly enough, they keep the lawyers amused when they're in my office. The best so far is Mousetrap, you need tweezers to put it together, it's so small. I wish I could find one (if it's even out there) for Rock'em Sock'em Robots.

Okay... this wouldn't be used in the office, but I saw the coolest new version of an old toy at Toys R Us last night. It's a LiteBrite Cube... just like the old lite brites, but with four sides. And now, instead of just having the little pegs, they have these long bendy light loops that make 3-d effects. I was going gaga over this thing, so I have a feeling it will be under the tree this xmas... yay!




I ended up getting something called a Queasy Bake oven... just like the old Easy Bakes, but they have maggot shaped muffin tins and most of the things end up having gummy worms or other yucky looking items in the recipe. (It's for a 10 y.o... but I'm secretly hoping that she wants me to help in the "baking")... now that's some cooking I can get into!

Oh! I still have a lightbright! I like the new version though-

You know, I think I want a fish or frog, does that count as a toy?

FISH! I want a fish so badly, but I hate cleaning the tank and Rob has told me he'll drag out all his aquarium paraphenalia for me, but I'm in charge of cleaning. ugh. maybe i just get a little one gallon tank with a cute little beta for my office.

I saw a SpongeBob SquarePants tank the other day. I want either that or a large vase with a water plant in it-

Here's my fish, Kel! It's a 55 gallon stocked with fishes found in our many local lakes. And I'm lucky - my Conservation Coordinator feeds and cleans them!

One word

JEALOUS!

I wonder if I put something that big in my office if anyone would notice. :)
