Mother's Day...Geek Style!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!  Yes a little early, but I have a fun-filled weekend planned so I don't know when I'll write again.

Dave did really well this Mother's Day!

Okay, so he booked his annual trip to visit his model railroading/railfanning friends in Maryland and Pennsylvania for this weekend.  And that's where he is as I type this.  But that was seriously unintentional -- the group he hangs out with belongs to the Conrail Historical Society, and they planned this annual BBQ/membership meeting for the 1st full weekend of May.  That's usually when it is.  But this year, since Mother's Day is on the 2nd Sunday of May...and the 1st Sunday of May was not the first "full" weekend of May...well...my head hurts just thinking about it.

As we usually do as a military family, when real life gets in the way of a particular holiday, we just choose to celebrate on a different day, so we went out to a nice family dinner last weekend.

But a package arrived yesterday from Thinkgeek.com.  I didn't expect anything other than the dinner out...I ask for the same thing every year: a nice day with the family.

Is it what I think it is???

At first I thought, "no", since the package was heavier than what I thought it was.  After all, I hadn't indicated to Dave that I wanted ANYTHING from ThinkGeek.  But he somehow knew.

I didn't know he even realized that there's a GeekMom.com t-shirt!  I'd planned to just get myself one eventually.  But he knew, and he got me one!  Perfect gift, perfect size!


What was the heavier-than-a-tshirt item in the box?  It was this:


Does Dave know me or does Dave know me???  I'm so excited to get this book, Cooking for Geeks by Jeff Potter.  This book was featured on GeekMom last December (complete with a giveaway for a free copy) and I'd been interested in getting it for several months.

And before anyone asked, YES, I have the Alton Brown books!
