So, it turns out that I have a number of hobbies and interests that some might consider to be, how shall we put this, a bit “nerdy”: for example, comic books or science fiction TV or mystery games, etc.
And it turns out that like many people with nerdy interests, I have a birthday. One that I celebrate every year, often with presents. Plus Christmas.
And I think sometimes people aren’t sure what to get me, even though I–like all people with a hobby–think I’m a pretty easy person to shop for (“Just get The Flash by Geoff Johns, vol. 3 or Showcase Presents The Unknown Soldier vol 2 or a Doctor Who DVD, but not the new series, cuz I watch that on iTunes or Netflix–c’mon, it’s so obvious!”)
Anyway, the result of this confluence of circumstances is that over the years, I have received a lot of mugs. A lot of nerdy mugs. Even…a Legion of nerdy mugs!
