The Usual Question: What DO I Want For Christmas?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 15.678% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

As is usual around this time, I’m compiling my annual greed list in preparation for Christmas, in which I list all the prezzies I could possibly want for Christmas.  But life is good; I have much of what I need (which is why my annual gifts invariably include a large, cow-sized gift to Heifer International).
So I ask you: what’s cool that I should want?  Point me in the direction of the bizarre, the delightful, the wonderful – and the vaguely affordable. (Yes, I’d love a life-sized X-Wing in my yard, but I don’t think I’m gonna get it.)  Show me something neat that any nerd like me would be thrilled to get for Christmas!  Please!
(Also, if you have the personal with any starter fire poi kit or a straight-edged razor you’d recommend, please let me know.  There are many kits, and I’d like to get the right one.  Yes, this year’s Christmas includes an unusually high dosage of potential self-harm.)

    Do you still have the bees/do you get any honey from them? You could try your hand at making mead with it. It’s a slow process (mead wants at least nine months to age before it’s drinkable), but a lot less complicated and requiring less equipment than beer – a couple of glass jugs, some yeast, an S-valve and a siphon – and there’s something uniquely satisfying about drinking alcohol you made yourself.
