It's Wear & Share Star Wars day! Are you rockin' your SW gear? And have you donated a geeky toy to charity yet? (Full disclosure: I haven't yet. But I will, I will!)
What's that? In honor of the day you want to see another amazing Star Wars mash-up?
(Video not working? You can also watch it here on Youtube.)
- The complete list of Star Wars snowflakes submitted by @thinkgeek readers so far, along with templates so you can make your own!
- and another goody you've probably already seen, but too good not to mention:
See more at artist Adam Watson's site, where you can also purchase prints.
And finally, have you heard of the famous ice hotel that gets constructed every winter in Sweden? I saw a documentary on it once: really fascinating, beautiful stuff. And yes, you really do sleep on a bed made of solid ice, in rooms made of snow and ice. (Assuming you have enough cold hard cash to afford the reservation, of course. Heh.)
Anyway, check out the special theme room this year (!!):
TRON, you are now officially really, really cool.
(No pun intended.)
Check out more pics at the builder's blog here, or the Youtube vid of its construction here.
Oh, and if you're not following Epbot on Facebook: you should. 'Cuz then you'd already have seen the amazing CNN article on Katie that I was interviewed for last week, plus the steampunk cupcakes that dozens and dozens of you have been e-mailing me about, plus lots of other fun geeky tidbits and links that I share there from time to time. It's also a great place to share your stuff. I get a kick out of seeing all your photos and links - and you never know when I might feature them here on the blog!

...in my dreams, I mean. Because - oh yes - I will be dreaming about this tonight:
Even better, there are full instructions and progress pics of the construction over on Instructibles. Break out the air compressors and power tools, my friends! And also John. Because, c'mon, we totally need a few of these, Sweetie. [Bambi eyes]
Found via the amazing ThinkGeek twitter feed, which you should really be subscribed to if you're a twit. I mean a tweeter. I mean a person addicted to social media. Ok, I mean me.

This Friday, December 10th, is Wear & Share Star Wars day! As you guys probably already know, this is in honor of Star Wars Katie and her über cool water bottle. So, break out your Star Wars t-shirts, backpacks, earrings, or what-have-you, and rock 'em with pride this Friday! Also don't forget to donate a Star Wars toys (or other geeky toy, if you'd prefer) to your local shelter, hospital, or Toys For Tots charity.
And to get you in the Star Wars mood, here's some stuff to make you grin.
First, some rockin' art sent in by Daya:
This was a Star Wars Fan Club exclusive by Hugh Fleming all the way back in 1998. Happily, you can still snag the poster for less than six bucks on Amazon, though, and I even spotted it on a few t-shirts on Ebay. So... I think I'm gonna have to buy one of those.
Another oldie but goodie: Steampunk R2D2
Ah, but it gets even better: have you seen the updated version?
Vader is my favorite. :) Click here to see the rest of the set.
Oh, and here's a time-sensitive deal: the Peats are offering a printed book of their entire alphabet set for $15 here - but you have to order it by midnight, tonight! So, you know, hurry up.
D'awwww. See the whole set here on artist Joe Wight's DeviantArt gallery.
And finally, I have a little something to give away: a Star Wars Christmas t-shirt!
The give-away has ended. Winner announced below!
UPDATE: And the winner is....Brilliantpants!! (I trust there's only *one* commenter out there with that name?) Congrats, and please e-mail me your mailing address, Brill.
