More Space Invaders Clothing, This Time It’s For Me!

Knitted cap

Recall the Space Invaders scarf from November that someone was selling? My mother has been knitting for about 40 years and I showed her that pic of the scarf last month, mentioning how cool it is for geeks to have something like that.

Yesterday in the mail, that knit cap you see above (clicky) showed up in my mail, she quickly knitted it together for me to enjoy this Winter. Isn’t my mom cool?

Shameless plug for my mother: here’s her eBay store of the massive inventory of used books she sells. I love hearing stories about some of the books she and my sister find and then resell. Like the time they found a book on “How To Make A Coffin” at a garage sale for about $1, and a fellow bid it up on eBay to something like $50 or $75. Quite the profit.

Thanks for the geeky gift Mom!

And yes, I’ll wear it to work to show off how geeky I am and that I’m proud of that fact 8)

Or am I delusional that the wife would want this?

So…..  Ever had the desire to have 500 complete strangers answer the questions burning in your mind?  Well now is your chance!  The folks over at provide this service for you in a fleeting interesting way.  I say fleeting because the concept gets kind of repetitive after a while. For me, the novelty wore off after viewing a couple of questions get answered, but hey, if you have a lot of questions to ask that need a multitude of answers, this is the place for you!

Ye Be Makin’ An Icon, Matey!

Piratey Icon

Make your own Piratey Avatars like mine above, thanks to Stephanie Clarkson!

I figured the pink text should soften the scariness factor a touch, no?

Stephanie has some interesting things on her site – she has a cool tattoo, she has a blog and best of all she’s a professional designer of logos and avatars from time to time and she enjoys doing graphics for Puzzle Pirates. And she’s not just a graphics geek, she’s also developer. Devs are people I can relate to.

You probably haven’t put two and two together yet, recall the question I posed the other day: “OK, So Who Is My Mascot?“.

I’ll contact Stephanie, may she can help me answer that question.
