Final Night – The Ultimate Visual Guide

On the eighth and final night of Chanukah, I received the culmination of all 6 of the Star Wars Visual Guides, the Ultimate Visual Guide. It’s pretty cool, but I think it would be better if they simply put all of the visual guides as well as extra information into one monster book, since this doesn’t really have entries on everything that each guide had. For example, it defines “droids” and the important droids, but not which droids were used in the Battle of Geonosis, for example. Still, a great book.

Night 7 – New Essential Chronology and PenAgain

On the second to last night of Chanukah, I got an awesome Star Wars book called The New Essential Chronology. It has the complete history of the Galaxy far, far away from the Rakata and Star Forge in 100,000 b.b.y. (Before the Battle of Yavin) all the way to the fall of Coruscant in 27 a.b.y. and the Killik Expansion in 36 a.b.y. With a color photo on almost every page, the book is really, really, awesome.

I also got an “extra” called the Ergo-Sof PenAgain, a pen shaped like a Y, which is apparently better on your hand then your standard pen.

Night 6 – $40 and Shapeshifter

Tonight I first recieved $40 from my aunt (bringing me up to $393, but something like $300 of that is going to pay for one of my later channukah presents to myself…Technically it’s from my parents, but they paid for like $20 of it, so it’s really like I bought it for myself with their blessing. Whatever, I’m still really glad I’m getting it. More on that when it actually comes!). I’m currently saving to buy a 22″ monitor to hook up to Eve to get mad awesome display space…

Then later I got a second present, a registration code for Shapeshifter, the awesome-tastic skinning app for Mac computers made by Unsanity, makers of awesome Mac hacks. It’s really awesome.

Here are some screenshots. First, we’ve got the basic layout of the theme:

Then an annoyance of the skin, VirtueDesktop is not affected by it…

I’ll try to figure out why that’s happening later, for now I can live with it…

Night 5 – Fantastic 500 Puzzle Challenge

I got a book of 500 puzzles (logic, math, geometry, etc.) tonight. It’s actually pretty cool.

Night 4 – Don’t Screw With the Evil Neurodiverse

Tonight I got an awesomely huge green tee that says “Don’t screw with the evil neurodiverse” and has a picture of a doll with knitting needles through him. I love it. :)

Night 3 – Magnetic Sculpture

Tonight I got a magnetic sculpture. It’s a bunch of little metal X’s and O’s that are magnetized by a large circular base, so they can stand up and stuff. Very cool.

Night 2 – Annoy-a-tron

Tonight I received a Thinkgeek Annoy-a-tron for Chanukah. It’s very evil and very fun. Just turn it on, select the sound (beep, high-pitched ringing, or alternating), and hide it. Mwahahahaa….Mwahahahahahahaaa…MWAHAHAHAHA! HA HA HA HAAAAA!!!!annoy-a-tron
