New arrival: Lego Pencil Holder

It is a geek’s dream! Behold my wife’s present for this year’s winter celebrations! The awesome LEGO pencil holder in all its glory standing now on my desk and holding my weapons of choice I use most at the moment. The LEGO pencils are a nice addition, but I am no fan of branded, advertising or novelty pencils. Either way the little guy will be in my company for a long time!

Geekery: Atari games branded pencils

The above picture was posted on the Erasable Podcast Community Page on Facebook and it shows what might be my doom… I have, well had, no interest in pencils that exist only to be a publicity, sporting some fancy colors and slogans and totally loosing at being a proper pencil, but these got me thinking. I’m a 77’s guy, so I have that urge of reliving part of a time I only lived through half consciously being a kid. These pencils do exactly that and they do that in a wonderful way as the Atari VCS 2600 was my first (well mine and my sisters…) gaming console.
