I got my awesome package from the fabulous Reuse a few days ago! I wanted to take pictures in sunlight, but the weather hasn't been cooperating, so these were the best I could do. They don't really do justice to the fantastic items, but really, I'm not sure this level of pure awesome could be contained in a photograph anyway.

The bubble mailer everything came in, decorated with nerdy goodness, and extras: Skittles, SweetTarts, maple candies, and a magic towel and magnetic clip decorated with the Canadian flag.
I love Skittles, but can't get them here, so those are very much appreciated, and I may have eaten the whole thing of SweetTarts at once. The maple candies were strange, but delicious.
Everything was wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon! Opening them was like Christmas.
I got a Darwin fish necklace! We're both evolution nerds.
Action shot! I love it.
Two absolutely brilliant bracelets! The charms are, from left to right, pi, an atom (Carbon, is that you?
), a book to represent my literature nerd side, another pi, and the integration symbol. The other bracelet is, yep, pi again. I love, love, love both of them.
A terrible action shot of the charm bracelet. (If my wrist looks weird, like I think it might, it's because A. I broke it five years ago and it didn't set right, and B. because I got bit by some weird mutant insect, which sadly gave me terrible swelling and itching instead of superpowers.)
And an action shot of the pi bracelet. I've worn it twice now, and I've gotten a bunch of compliments from likeminded nerds.
I also got a really cute zippered pouch. Math is indeed very sexy.
And finally, a beautiful tote bag. The pictures is from a bubble chamber. I love these kinds of pictures. They're incredibly pretty and intriguing. This immediately became my default bag, so it has all my crap, including the 'math is sexy' pouch, in it in this shot.
Thank you so, so much, Reuse! I love everything!
(And now I'm going to go work on my crafts again so I won't end up sending a totally crap package in return... Swap anxiety systems are GO!)
