I just had to mention the cool shit I got for Christmas. Aside from cash, which is the most versatile gift you can possibly get someone, and the aforementioned book and GIR plushie from Earnie, Gene got me Frigits
, the magnetic marble rollercoaster. I've been looking at these things for a while now, since Jerry told me about them.
I finally had the chance to open them up last night. I set up numerous different configurations, and promptly lost about half the included marbles behind the fridge.
The ferris wheel unit doesn't always work right, so the marbles will often glance off of the side of one of the wells and bounce about the kitchen, usually finding its way around to the gap between the wall and the fridge.
Still, though, it's some pretty cool shit. Thanks, Gene.
Jerry and I are thinking about getting each other Roombas
because we're both really lazy bastards, but we're still waiting to see how the reviews are on the thing.Current Mood:
