All my Reddit Secret Santa really knew about me was that I was a math teacher (and an atheist, though that wasn’t relevant here)… and s/he sent me the following (after the jump)!
(A portable Tetris Nano game!)
(My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles by Martin Gardner)
(Four CDs: Ágætis byrjun by Sigur Rós, Separation Sunday by The Hold Steady, American Slang by The Gaslight Anthem, and Invented by Jimmy Eat World)
(A Tin Can Robot)
The letter reads:
First off, sorry for being tardy in sending your gifts to you. My deepest apologies, sir!
So, what does one get for an atheist math teacher for Newton’s-Day? I know you wanted something you could share with your students, and hopefully the logic & math puzzles and the robot will fill that wish nicely. I also wanted to get you something tou could enjoy while they’re taking tests — what better distraction than Tetris?!
Now, I don’t mean to be presumptive of your musical tastes, however music is a big part of my life. I’m sending you a few albums from a couple of my favorite bands. I hope they bring you as much joy as they’ve brought me.
Wishing you all the best in 2012; let’s hope the Mayans were wrong!
— Your S.S.
Greatest gifts ever Thank you, whoever you are!
