Today's Round-Up is a little bit different. I have a few links for you, but I kinda want to promote myself a little bit. I'm considering starting a Minecraft Youtube series, and I've uploaded the first video. So as my test audience, if you have the time, go watch it and throw me some suggestions and comments. Let me know what ya think, and what I can do to make it more entertaining.
If you didn't quite get what you wanted for Christmas, you can trade in those bunny slippers for a Super Mario, Final Level leather belt. [geekologie]

This picture could only be better if they dressed up another labrador as one of the Bumpus' dogs.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! Well... almost. Just two more days. Are you excite? Hopefully I can throw some extra Christmas cheer your way with a completely Christmas themed Round-Up.
What Christmas would be complete without The Grinch? We've all seen it, and if you haven't... c'mon, srsly? Where the heck have you been for the past 45 years? You have absolutely no excuse! Go watch it right now, then you can come back and finish reading the rest of this. Consider yourself shunned. Now, for the rest of us, here are 7 things about The Grinch, that you might not know.

When I say Minecraft, the first thing you think about is Christmas, right? No? Well this might help. Some Minecraft wrapping paper. Just make sure your presents are a perfect cube shape. [geekosystem]
Two more days until Christmas also means two more days until the Doctor Who Christmas episode! For those who can't wait, here are 9 new awesome, but 'spoilery', Doctor Who Christmas pics. [blastr]
Remember all those crazy ornaments you used to put on the tree from back when you were a kid. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones you made in school. The seriously crappy and ugly ones that nobody would ever want on their tree except for your mom, and only because you made it. Well those ornaments don't even compare to the creepiness of these ones. 11 of the most unintentionally creeeeeeepy Christmas ornaments. [cracked]
Calvin and Hobbes, one of the best comics ever made, and every winter those two made some of the most awesomely creepy snowmen. A guy by the name of JimFrommeyer recreated some of these snowmen in a horrific snowman tribute video. [geekosystem]
Want a couple minutes of entertainment? Go to Google and search "let it snow" without the quotes, then sit back and enjoy. When it finishes, click and drag your mouse around the screen. =D If you don't want to take the extra effort to go to Google yourself, then fine... I'll do it for you. [google]
Poor Megatron keeps getting the same ol' thing for Christmas, but this Christmas just might be a little different. [youtube]
Consider these next two videos, my gift to you. Merry Christmas.

Video 2: A snowman prank that goes terribly wrong. [youtube]
I bet you got through this entire post thinking to yourself, "There's no way he's gonna be able to link Skyrim with Christmas. Not a chance." Well, my friend, you would be completely WRONG! Yes, I have a Christmas related Skyrim link, and it's probably my most favorite one on this list. A guy by the name of Mitch has most epicly decked his halls (and by "halls" I mean "house") with a light show. Forget syncing your lights to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, that's so last 5 years. Mitch synced his house to the theme from Skyrim. SO awesome. [gammasquad]

Hey! That's me!
GeekSugar.com is pretty much the most adorbz geeky girl website I've seen since CuteGirlsLickingElectronicsWithoutGettingElectrocuted.com. What do you mean that's not a real site?
Anyway, GeekSugar was awesome enough to feature me in a Holiday Wishlist piece where I converse about my Holiday Wishlist. Of course it includes a Nerf gun. You should have expected this from me by now.
