Got a couple boxes of sweet swag from Achmed Jones today



in no particular order:
- two books, one a pinball graphic history and the other a sci-fi RPG book
- an Outer Wilds sticker hidden in the RPG book
- bags of candy (Mazapan, Pulparindo hard candy, and Andes chocolates)
- holiday card feat. Alaskan poodles
- a "Blackbeard flag"
- a laser pointer from ~'95 and a VGA-HDMI adapter (which will, ironically, be kinda handy at the office for those goddam WinCE6 machines I keep bitching about :v:)
- a couple caps; the orange one's super comfy & warm, with bonus appropriate acronym :j:
- a freaking ham radio set; there's my plans for the weekend, I'd say!

Huge thanks to you & the rest of the Jones crew! Happy Holidays ❤️
