  2. Glad you guys enjoyed my gift list, but you gotta get on the astronomy tip. Stars are cool! Much cooler than David Bowie in satin pants, anyway.

  3. I think you could pretty much say that ANYTHING is better than David Bowie’s Satin pants! We’ll try to be a little more open minded about you astronomy people going forward…

  4. Nice show!

    I like the geek gift guides! I shall see if I can convince my spousal unit to purchase any of these for me. She is a non-geek so I will have to subject myself to going to the non-geek stores to purchase the Christmas items for her.

    -Shades ( I wanna be a geeklet too)
