My girlfriend got me a “man-bag” a.k.a “geek-bag” for Christmas which I pretty much already knew and she is -teh AWESOME- for …. But, what I didn’t know was that she was being sneaky and had been watching me geek out over the patches in the adafruit shop one evening and decided to get me some for Christmas to go with the bag. She said she got the ones that she knew what it was and knew I had “earned” hehe, she also wanted to get me the magic blue smoke monster since she has witnessed on a few occasions some… “complications” …at my work bench, but alas, it was out of stock at the time… Anyway, Thank you Ladyada and adabot for having these awesome patches for all us maker-geeks!
