It’s Friday. That means another edition of Five Fandom Friday from geeky bloggers all over thanks to the genius of Super Space Chick and The Nerdy Girlie. Today’s topic: Presents I Want Santa To Bring Me. And let me just state right up front – I believe!
Santa is magical and we all need a little more magic in our lives. That said, I actually had a really tough time deciding what I wanted to put on this list. I love giving and Christmas is really about spending that quality time with my family. The gifts are just a bonus. My choices are below:
The World of Ice and Fire
I’ve been on a book buying embargo this year in order to try to get through the massive number of books I already have but have yet to read (it hasn’t been too successful though. Anyone want some books?). That said, lots of really interesting books are still coming out and I’m coveting them. The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones has been on my radar since it was announced. I’ve heard its beautiful and has a lot to offer to those who are fans of the Song of Ice and Fire. Considering I have all those books in hardcover (plus the official cookbook), I’d love to add this to my collection.
Magic Eight Ball
Yes, it’s completely silly. But sometimes you just need a random yes/no answer and there is nothing better than a Magic Eight Ball to help provide that guidance. Plus, it’s a toy and that makes it right up Santa’s wheelhouse! You know those elves can put together one of these in a couple seconds!
Imperial Symbol Stud Earrings
I bought the Her Universe Symbol Caridgan…so wouldn’t these earrings look adorable with it? I’ve started to realize I don’t have much geeky jewelry and on those days where I can’t get away with wearing the geeky clothing, the jewelry would be nice and subtle. Plus, it’s a conversation starter with people who ‘get it.’
I once saw a t-shirt with the text “I wear band shirts as a sort of mating call.” I think that applies well to geek fashion too, don’t you?
I know I’m getting a fancy new mat cutter for Christmas (a deal I worked out with my parents), so it would be amazing if Santa brought a bunch of uncut matboards in various colors so that I can put my new gift to good use (and finally frame a bunch of paintings and pictures I have in my home).
4-Day Comic Con 2014 Badge
This would require the truly magical skills of Mr. Clause. But given the fact I didn’t end up with anything at all this year in pre-reg, I’m feeling like magic is the only way I’ll end up with passes to next year’s convention.
And that’s my list of Presents I Want Santa To Bring Me for Fandom Friday. But I’m just going to leave this right here too:
I have 13 days to wait and see what does end up under the tree from Santa. To see what other geeky bloggers are asking Santa:
If reading about what I want doesn’t have you revising your Christmas list, you can search #Fandom5 to find even more wish list items. What have you asked Santa for this year?
