Top 5 Nerd Christmas moments
5-Iron Man 3
This wasn’t my favorite of the Iron Man series, Iron Man 1 currently holds that spot, but…. JARVIS has a stocking!! If you look behind Pepper and Tony on the fireplace hang three stockings. One for Pepper, one for Tony, and one in binary code for JARVIS. What I want to know is what was Tony putting in the stocking?
I love in the episode “The Last Vow” when Mycroft is talking to Sherlock at their parent’s house (It appears to be a Christmas gathering) about a job offer that Mycroft wants Sherlock to turn down. Mycroft goes on to explain that it would prove fatal to Sherlock within about six months. Sherlock is surprised why he is not supposed to take the job. Mycroft tells Sherlock that he is more useful where he is. And Mycroft says, “Your loss would break my heart”. Because Mycroft will always be Sherlock’s big brother.
3-The Big Bang Theory “The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis”
To give you a little background if you don’t watch the show the two guys are physicists and their neighbor, Penny, is a waitress at The Cheesecake Factory. When Sheldon gives a gift he has to have them be of equal monetary value. So his plan was when Penny gave him his gift he would go and look up the cost of the gift online. And then he would give Penny a previously purchased gift basket of similar value. This is what he does to try to make the gifts equal. And per Wikipedia, Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honor of the deity Saturn. It was held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December.
2-Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone by JK Rowling
‘On Christmas Eve, Harry went to bed looking forward to the next day for the food and the fun, but not expecting any presents at all. When he woke early in the morning, however, the first thing he saw was a small pile of packages at the foot of his bed.
“Merry Christmas, ” said Ron sleepily as Harry scrambled out of bed and pulled on his bathrobe.
“You too,” said Harry, “Will you look at this? I’ve got presents!”
“What did you expect, turnips?” said Ron, turning to his own pile, which was a lot bigger than Harry’s.’
I love that Harry’s got people who care about him enough to give him presents, even people he hasn’t met yet. Like Mrs. Weasley. And I love the surprise he gets when he does get them, after so many (what I imagine) were disappointing Christmas’s at the Dursley’s.
And my favorite nerd Christmas moment is
The Doctor, the widow, and the wardrobe. My favorite moment occurs at the end of the episode.
Number one, I love that Amy has a water gun. Number two, I love that even for two years they always set a place for the Doctor just hoping that he would show up. I love the hope in this episode, but especially in this clip.
What about you? What are some of your favorite nerd Christmas moments?
Merry Christmas!!! I hope you have a wonderful and joyous holiday!!
