  • Hadyn Green,

    And if I may advertise a little more:
    I just noticed that the Felt.co.nz banner that is occasionally at the top of these threads features the crocheted Russian dolls my Amy makes.

  • Richard Irvine,

    I just this minute saw what I NEED: an angry mob playset.

    Either that, or anything from the sportreview.net.nz Zobmbie Gift Guide from a year or so back.

  • Naly D,

    I have to buy my own presents.

    Top of my list is a new car and Guitar Hero: World Tour.

    I think I'll treat myself this year and buy the latter today or tomorrow.

  • Gareth Ward,

    I'm considering celebrating Dies Natalis Solis Invicti this year - the pagan "birthday of the unconquered sun" which was celebrated on Dec 25th (the taekover of this date by Christians for Christmas is still contentious)...

    It just sounds like something I really should celebrate. The lack of conquering of the sun is a real highlight...

    Zapp Brannigan Ray Gun!

    Ooooh, that is nice and much cheaper than this beauty that I want-mas from Weta Workshop (USD5,000!)

  • Hadyn Green,

    A friend of mine owns the FMOM Wave Disrupter. It's very nice, but bloody heavy

  • Joanna,

    For Xmas this year I want the things that I nominated for TAWAs to win, and I want everyone to come along and have a good time on the night, and for us to become rich and famous.

    Also, I really really want a giant moosehead from Wanda Harland that's made of little bits of plywood like those dinosaur skeletons I'm sure you all used to have that you put together yourself.

  • Amy Galvani,

    I want anything from Swonderful. And I want a good book, not the good book, but Scar Tissue by Anthony Keidis. I'm told it's a great read. And this is my first xmas (pretty much) away from my mum, so by midday xmas day I'll be wanting my mommy and her home-made pav!

  • Rachel Prosser,

    Lots of lovely book vouchers. Or Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers. But I may buy it for someone else instead!

    Turkey for dinner (Croziers turkey naturally - my Ash-Vegan connections to the fore!)

    And I second the suggestion to visit the Felt website - they have some lovely stuff there. I met someone at the English Park market on Saturday, and saw some of the lovely stuff in person.

  • Hadyn Green,

    I know it's technically too late to order things from overseas for Christmas but I would quite like some Actual Size stickers.

    It's always nice meeting the crafters, they are lovely folk.

  • Amy Gale,

    I would quite like things such as a science tshirt.

    When I read this I assumed you were talking about one of the xkcd science shirts, which in turn made me think, right, I want the regex cheat skirt. But then I thought wait a minute, it's not like I don't own a credit card. So I bought it.

    In summary, if you are Dr M searching the web in want-mas related desperation: neener neener neener.

    I love xkcd but I want more of the maths jokes on shirts.

    The other good thing about a want-mas list is anything not on it is fair game!

  • Paul Campbell,

    I actually bought some NZ wine that came with it's own USB key in the supermarket the other day - it was for a geek birthday party so it was vaguely appropriate - the key contained some promo for the vinyard

    Hadyn, there are plenty of places with Maths t-shirts for example Maths T-shirts Assume you have checked out Think Geek.

    Though one person's funny is another's 'seriously WTF'

  • Peter Darlington,

    As of this morning I may need a new espresso machine. Any recommendations for units under $1500 much appreciated...

  • Hadyn Green,

    Yeah but they are a little too geeky (if that's possible), and the physics jokes are funnier. I like the Factorial! one though.

    I always wanted the shirt that said:
    "snakes ε {R^2}"

    (Snakes on a plane)

  • Sue,

    felt is like a craft market online, plus you know everything is handmade, which makes it all beyond awesome

    A cheaper addiction?

  • Gareth Ward,

    Peter - I have this (about $950 from Altura). My research at the time suggested it was the best under the heat exchange/domobar beasts:
    http://www.wholelattelove.com/Rancilio/silvia.cfm
    Great for a couple of cups at a time - I can better most cafe's on it for that. Multiple milky coffees, it's a bit too finicky.

    But you can possibly get into the E61 grouphead/double boiler stuff for under $1,500 now? Not sure...

    Triggers my Inner Crocodile Dundee, that does.

    "That's not a snayk. Thees ees a snayk."

  • Skinny,

    I hate to go really cheap, but Consumer recommended this $369 unit as top of the bunch for espresso machines

  • Emma Hart,

    Awkward, me?

    I want-mas a decent 'The Angels Have the Blue Box' t-shirt. Like this only with the correct slogan, or like this but iwth the correct slogan. And not naff.

    Don't have a working naff detector.

    How about this one at Print Perfection ?
