I love the Think Geek website. (

I have browsed through their website for years but I still haven’t purchased a single item. My wish list on my Think Geek account has more than 50 items and it keeps growing.

I made this list for those of you who haven’t bought a gift for that geeky/nerdy friend, loved one, office mate, classmate, or relative of yours.

I’ve skipped items which may be too expensive for a gift and t-shirts and plush toys. This list contains items which are useful and/or unique and all under $50 found on the Think Geek website.

This reminds me of the first episode of The Big Bang Theory where  Leonard and Sheldon invites Penny to their apartment and Penny takes a shower in their bathroom

For my twen-teenth birthday (yes, twenteenth), Grace, Arnold and I had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Tender Bobs.

They surprised me by bringing me this delicious blueberry cheesecake from Conti’s with a spiral birthday candle which I find very cool. It even has this small battery operated music player to the tune of happy birthday.

For dinner I had a Porterhouse Steak, Angus rice, herb butter sauce and Tender Bobs signature side dish the BOMB.

Porterhouse Steak, Herb Butter sauce and Angus rice


 I’m not sure why it’s called “bomb” but I guess it’s because it will make your heart explode if you have too much. (just kidding) 😀



It was a simple, fuss-free birthday party. 🙂

This duo is comparable to Starbucks’  Banoffee Pie and White Hot Chocolate.

But this one is better because:

– the white-hot chocolate tea is mild but tasty while Starbucks’ is too sweet and has an odd after taste. Plus tea is healthier.

– the banoffee pie of thousand teas’ oozes with the caramel filling that is neither too sweet nor sticky.
