The Holidays, Exfanding, and You

Well, it's officially that time of year again, and come Friday, crazed crowds will line up in the pre-dawn hours to overtake kindly Best Buy employees in an effort to buy a television they don't need for 5% less than they would have paid two weeks ago.

Ahh, the holidays.

Running around, spending money none of us can afford to spend, debating questions like, "Do you think Dad will like this foot massager?" and "How do you know Great Aunt Mildred doesn't watch Family Guy?"

I can smell the consumerism (and not to mention, fear) from here.

But fear not, dear readers, for, as always, your Friendly Neighborhood Exfanders will be providing the annual (and celebrated!) Gifts for Geeks lists, wherein we try to make the holidays just a bit easier on you.

(That is, of course, once I ask Nathaniel if he wants to do these blasted (um, I mean blessed) lists again this year.)

Look for the first (of several!) installments in the next couple of days (or weeks!) and please feel free to drop us a line about your own gift ideas for the geeky. Or, you know, any hilarious shopping-related incidents that may have befallen you in the past.

Like that one time with me and the mall Santa and the bag of toys "for the children." You're not fooling me again this year, old man!

Happy Saturday, everyone!
