Good afternoon!

Sorry to have kept you waiting, but we're afraid our silly walk has become rather sillier recently, and so it takes us rather longer to get to work. Perhaps it has something to do with today being the 42nd anniversary of Monty Python's Flying Circus. Hopefully it won't make us drop the cake we're bringing in for Ada Lovelace Day on Friday.

Oops! Gotta go! We're late to Self Defense Against Fruit class so we'll just leave you here with these goodies.

Claim your bounty! To the power of three!

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Star Wars Limited Edition Moleskines - Write your own prequels

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars Limited Edition Moleskines - Write your own prequels

Moleskine notebooks have been prized by artists and authors for years. Something about them just inspires genius. Just think how awesome the Star Wars prequels could have been if Darth Lucas wrote them on these Star Wars Moleskine Notebooks. Two sizes, two styles, and lined or unlined, these Moleskines are the most beautiful notebooks in this (or any other) galaxy. As a bonus, each one comes with a mini version of the original Brothers Hildebrandt poster. Get 'em quick, though, because they are limited edition!

Star Wars Calendar - Saga Class of 2012

Remember back in the day when everyone got those double exposure portraits? This Star Wars calendar reminds us of those, except way cooler. (Maybe Vader rocked a sweet mullet under that helmet. We'll never know.) Each month features a different character from the Star Wars saga and plenty of room to write in your important dates and appointments. Now if only it shot lasers...

Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick - Limited quantities in December

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick - Limited quantities available in December

Here at ThinkGeek, whenever we plan our monthly dinner party for Dark Lords of the Sith it's always a fiasco. You know, lots of arguments about the reliability of AT-ATs and then things usually devolve into force-choking contests. Luckily our robot monkeys made a deal with Lucasfilm to create the stylish Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick. Not only do these detailed replicas look great on your table, the heavyweight all-metal construction is perfect for Force-whipping upside someone's head who can't seem to shut up about exhaust port failures.

Caffeinated Chocolate Milk Straws - 200mg of caffeine

As a child, one of the easiest ways to get us to drink our milk was to add chocolate powder to it. That works--sometimes--but now we need more as adults. How about 200mg of caffeine? That'd do it, wouldn't it? Of course it would. So, here you go. Add one straw to 8oz of milk, stir, and then suck it back up through the straw! You'll get your calcium and 2.5 energy drinks worth of caffeine. One big blast of chocolate milk awakeness. Milk does a body good, especially when loaded with caffeine.

Social Media Fridge Magnets - LIKE!

Spillnot Centrifugal Mug Carrier - No spills, thanks to physics!

If your images were on you'd see Spillnot Centrifugal Mug Carrier - No spills, thanks to physics!

We love our coffee and TeaEarlGreyHot and caffeinated hot chocolate, but who knew the walk from the kitchen back to our cubes would be so fraught with danger? The SpillNot mug holder will save you from spills with the magic of physics! The flexible loop handle of SpillNot cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the saucer or the cup. As the handle moves horizontally, the saucer and cup swing up slightly in the opposite direction, balancing everything out so the liquid stays in the cup. Ready to carry your burning hot beverage around the office with confidence? Get your own SpillNot and be the Mr. Wizard of beverage transportation.

Half Full Optimist's Glass - Half full, even when it's all empty

There's one at every party--the downer that takes a happy moment and ruins it for everybody. Like ruining a great discussion about Peter Jackson's Hobbit movie by bringing up Meet The Feebles. We call those guys pessimists, and they can be real downers. Elevate your game by bringing them a glass that's always half full! The bottom of this borosilicate double-walled glass starts at the midpoint, so even when you've finished your drink, your glass is still half full! So, keep an eye out for that silver lining, put on your rose-colored glasses, and have a drink!

Dexter 7" Action Figure - If you have a morbid sense of fun

If your images were on you'd see Dexter 7 inch Action Figure - If you have a morbid sense of fun

The Dexter 7" Action Figure features serial killer/blood spatter analyst Dexter in his jumpsuit and black apron. He's honing his craft in Miami, the city where only about 20% of murders get solved. Viva Miami! We love the little details on this figure: the way his face mask can be worn down or up, the little saw that fits perfectly in his hand, and the blood stains on his apron and gloves.

Mindflex Duel - A wizard's duel

If your images were on you'd see Mindflex Duel - A wizard's duel

Move over, Harry Potter. Mindflex Duel is a wizard's duel in the Harry Dresden sense. Okay, maybe not exactly like Dresden. Nobody's going to die using the Mindflex Duel, but it's a similar mechanic. Strap on the headbands and challenge a weaker minded friend to a duel. Mindflex uses a variation of EEG technology to read the intensity of your brainwaves. When you concentrate, the ball rises. When you relax, it sinks. Force the ball into your opponent's end zone to win. The console includes 2 headsets, 4 balls, and various parts to set up mind games.

Wooden Ballista Kit - Ancient Roman Warfare for your desk

In Ancient Rome, they had this thing called a Ballista. It was a favorite of Alexander the Great. It could fire bolts or stone shot with devastating force and accuracy (especially since the Romans never stopped evolving its technology). Now you can build your own, based on the Roman design, and fire wooden shot all over your home and/or office. And this isn't some weaksauce Ballista--you'll be firing wood over 30 feet. Alex would be proud!

SpyNet Laser Trip Wire - Real lasers protect your stuff

If your images were on you'd see SpyNet Laser Trip Wire - Real lasers protect your stuff

One laser (one REAL laser), two mirrors, and one alarm unit--that's all you need to protect your stuff at work. Set up a real laser trip wire (and we're stressing the real laser part, because most of these toys just use red LEDS) around whatever you want to protect. When the laser gets crossed, an alarm sounds. Protect your donuts, your stapler, your chair--anything that office mates steal from you. Even better, set up one around your desk and hide nearby with a NERF gun. Once you hear the alarm... open fire!

Ever get dirty looks when you want to drink a cheap and easy beer from a longneck bottle? The Hopside Down Beer Glass lets you feel classy while sticking your tongue out at beer snobs. Yes, you're using a glass. Yes, you've tossed the bottle with the "offensive" brand's label. But you're drinking from a fun glass that is an homage to a time when beer wasn't so complicated. When beer was beer and men were men. Or something. Hopside Down is hand-blown, precisely crafted, dishwasher safe, and totally awesome.
