Consumables #37, Sort Of

I haven't really consumed a whole lot this week, other than a pan of lasagna (made on Sunday, ate all the way through Thursday), two episodes of The Bachelor (damn you, Tivo, and your suggestions that I can't say no to), and the first season of Sherlock (every time I see the name Benedict Cumberbatch, I think of that Eddie Izzard bit about Englebert Humperdink).

In other news, it's Nordic Boy's birthday soon, and friends and family have asked what he might like for his birthday. I got him to make a wishlist, and predictably, it is short, but it's better than nothing. I'm going to share it with you, and simply ask you, can you conceive of a nerdier list than this?

CNC Robotics, by Geoff Williams
Treatise of Mathematical Instruments, by John Roberston

Other stuff:
Wireless Weather Forecast Station and Temperature Sensor
Efergy EZ Wireless Electricity Monitor
Slide ruler

Who in the world asks for a slide ruler for their birthday? I think I am in love with Urkel.

Wavey asked for saw horses and new bits for his electronic screwdriver...

And Sherlock is most excellent, enjoy!

Do I also get nerdy points for getting him the weather station thingy?
