A Breakfast Fit For a Geek
This Christmas we discovered the joys of Think Geek.
The kids spent hours pouring through the catalog, circling things they had to have. Of course, I paid not a lick of attention until I discovered that some of my bestest gifts came from the site: a mini doughnut maker and caffeinated hot chocolate.
Think Geek is awesome, and I'm not even close a geek (ask our work computer techs who rescue me at least once a month). How can you not love a site with an entire section devoted to caffeine? I need my morning dose. Although, my coffee isn't so much coffee as it is milk tinted with a shot of espresso. The smell of freshly brewed java is positively intoxicating. The taste? Not so much. But caffeinated hot cocoa? Perfect, especially since I usually doctor my cup o' joe with plain cocoa anyway.
The doughnut maker is perfect for the Homer Simpson in all of us. Mmmmmmm, doughnuts. You feel like a giant picking up one of the dainty, silver dollar-sized pastries. Of course, it's also easy to turn into a giant (or at least one with a giant ass) because those little treats are easy to gobble by the dozen.
