So a while back, you may recall that solios drew a totally awesome picture of me wearing a Dr. Who season 12 scarf. Well. My dad was apparently amused enough by this to actually go buy one, from Germany, via eBay. My dad uses eBay. I'm kinda scared. (I don't have pictures of the scarf anywhere yet, but it is indeed about four meters long and way cool.)

Got to my desk this morning and found a couple packages. The first was from Mac Hall and contained:

A decent enough haul.

And then the box from Amazon, which contained Battlestar Galatica s1 DVDs. woot.

And of course there's that gift card pobox hooked me up with for helping them out a while ago with a box being unhappy. A veritable ass-ton worth of tech books at Amazon that will be trickling in over the next week or two.

Yay for accumulating Stuff.
