Hello all! Since we’re steadily approaching “The Holidays,” I thought I’d put together a fun list of Gadgets, Goodies, and Overall Geeky Gifts for that special person in your life, even if that special person is you! I hope they inspire that warm feeling inside… AND even if you don’t celebrate the Holidays, most of these ideas are still good for year-round gift giving!! Feel free to add to the list in the comments!

I know there’s tons of Geeky-Nerdy-Goodies out there….I hope this list at least gets you PUMPED for the season! Happy Holidays!!
I am so torn right now. I hate the song “Little Drummer Boy,” but I LOVE doggies, so I have no idea what to do with myself.
I’m pretty stoked that the dogs are just sitting there going, “I don’t know what the hell is going on, but I have a sweater and I’ll probably get treats later, SO LET’S DO THIS.”
The Chicago Gay Hockey Association put together this adorable compilation of them singing Mariah Carey’s classic Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas.”
Some of them are, um, better than others. But ’tis the season where all that matters is the enthusiasm behind what you’re singing. And they are enthusiastic. Also, 3:30. Dat line.
The ugly Christmas sweater has become a staple for holiday parties since their unironic inception in the 1980′s. Of course, the more authentic the sweater, the more compliments you’re bound to get on it. Take, for instance, these holiday sweater vests worn by myself and couple good friends from last year.
However, if you’re going for something a bit more modern that’s still just as outrageous, you might want to check out these digital holiday sweaters from Mark Rober. Though way more pricey than what you would pay after hours of rummaging at a thrift store, you still get the satisfaction of being the belle of the ball. However, make sure your phone is fully charged before you leave the house or you’re gonna have a dead phone by the end of the party.

I feel bad for anyone with dietary restrictions who can’t experience the full, gluttonous consumption of Thanksgiving food. Or constantly has to worry about what they’re putting in their body. I am the very definition of an non-discretionary eater. I will eat whatever is put on my plate.
Except lima beans. That shit’s gross.
Well, everybody. It’s that time for me to start stuffing my face full of food. Which means that Daily of the Day has decided to take the rest of the day off to spend time with loved ones and family, arguing with our crazy Conservative uncle and actively avoiding talking to that one cousin we have absolutely nothing in common with, while dodging questions from everybody about when you’re planning on getting married and popping out some babies.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am truly thankful for this last year and all of you lovely people who continue to come and visit our little corner of the internet. At times, I sometimes wonder if what I’m doing is actually important, meaningful, or even worthwhile. And then I read the comments and see how much of a community this really is that you all have created, whether you’re an active commenter or just a lurker. And I want to say thank you! Thanks for making it all worthwhile, everyday.
Enjoy the rest of the day and apologies to our international readers who don’t get to partake in the ultimate form of giving thanks in America: GLUTTONY. Mmmmm…piiiiiiiiiiie.
