There are only TWO acceptable gift categories for the geek girl... Cooking utensils, domestic applicances of any kind, or anything that is simply something HE wants for himself (exception for lingerie, of course), is out of the question.
Umm, Kathy, i know you are like the head girl geek (at least around here), but i beg to differ. my wife, who is a pretty big geek, LOVES cooking utensils as gifts (in addition to being a geek, she's a former French chef - meaning she cooked french food, not that she herself is, or ever was, french).
Personally, i think there is only one acceptable gift category - anything and everything on her Amazon wish list. [ June 24, 2004: Message edited by: fred rosenberger ]
