For me, it's a Pine64+ 64 bit teeny weeny computer that I paid $29 for plus 7 shipping in kickstarter. I am not sure it is going to do or be anything but my son is a bit of a nerd and I think it will please him.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy - Swift

One of those little coffee creamers taped to the inside lid of a box. It's in reference to an old Macho Man promo that amuses my boyfriend to no end. This is the video ( (embedding on an iPad is beyond me). He'll be ridiculously confused, then get it and laugh while reenacting the promo, after which this shirt ( will be gifted.

There's also the super-miniature bottle of perfume for my mother. She's starting to either not notice or not care how much perfume she applies. Her favorite is a ridiculously strong perfume that was discontinued 20 years ago or so but still turns up on eBay. I got her a 450ml bottle that is about half the size of my pinky. No choice but to ration. (Not her only present, I'm not completely mean).

A delicate silk scarf with an electron microscope image of Yersinia pestis silk-screened on it. For those who are not latin taxonomy nerds, that's plague bacteria. I have a friend who's a veterinarian, including serving as the town vet for a community up north of here. And they had a plague outbreak in the feral & outdoor kitty population this year. She got to spearhead that whole activity. (Coordinating local vets, the town council, state agencies & the CDC isn't so much her thing. Diagnostics & treatment is.) She spotted it right away, & 7 out of 8 of her patients are fine now! (One was just too far along when he was brought in.)

So I thought that was a good choice for her 2015. :-)
