Some of you (especially those who do not follow our Twitter or Facebook) may be mystified by the lack of updates and general radio silence, when this blog generally doesn’t shut up. However, since we are in the process of going self-hosted and readying a special birthday surprise (that was meant to happen on our first blog birthday, but who’s counting?) we have been a little… tied up. Unfortunately, we’re not quite sure when the self-hosted stuff will be wrapped up, and it’s been taking some time. I’m not even going to blame Mercury retrograde for it, we just have a special talent for setting the internet on fire. Well… while we’re getting everything nice and ready so we can all celebrate our birthday properly (and trust me, you are all going to like it very much) I thought I’d make a nice little post for you guys. This post serves two purposes – one, to reassure everyone that we are not yet dead, and two, to compile all our geeky and nerdy and awesome holiday posts from last year in one helpful place. We’ve noticed an increase of views in our last year’s gift guides and whatnot, and while we will be making new ones for this year, the last year’s might come in quite helpful too. So umm… enjoy?
Christmas Day was Tuesday… but New Year’s Day is Tuesday too! Okay, no, you’ve probably heard this one today once or twice… an hour… at least… I’ll stop now. However, seeing as it’s New Year’s Day, we have only two things to do: celebrate the fact that the world has yet to be destroyed, and get drunk. We here at 3 Chic Geeks have come up with a foolproof way of getting drunk – the ULTIMATE Supernatural drinking game. If you’re not drunk five minutes into the episode, then we’re pretty sure you’re not watching Supernatural. Read on to see the rules of the drinking game, and remember to drink responsibly. Or at least semi-responsibly.
In celebration of the end of 2012, we’re reviewing our favorite pop culture moments in the only socially acceptable format – GIFs. We feel it is appropriate to title 2012 as being the Year of the Fall, because of reasons. Many reasons. Many tear-inducing reasons. Read on to find out what made our
gaydar radar beep.
WARNING – May contain spoilers for Doctor Who, Sherlock, and basically the whole year. (#2012Spoilers)

I think it is Christmas Eve, Harry… And it just so happens, it falls on a Monday. Here is our gift for you today – an old holiday favorite to sing while you’re stringing up lights, hanging car fresheners on your tree, spiking your eggnogg and wrapping each other gifts of Busty Asian Beauties and shaving cream. There is no better way to celebrate than by singing this while dramatically posing on top of your Impala… so what are you waiting for?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people who read this blog are probably shopping for holiday presents for their families at this very moment. Now, some of you probably have friends who are huge Jane Austen geeks – we here at 3 Chic Geeks certainly are! Jane Austen was the mother of the modern romance novel, and created strong, intelligent heroines that we love to read about time and time again. Not to mention, she was born on December 16th. All in all, we have gathered some of our favorite Jane Austen-themed objects in this handy gift guide. It’s perfect for last-minute holiday shopping AND for drooling over things you desire (with us, it is a little bit of both).
While the Harry Potter books and film franchise may have come to an end, Pottermania is far from over. In fact, the Harry Potter fandom continues to be one of, if not the, most prominent online and around the world. Being proud Potterheads ourselves here at 3 Chic Geeks, a gift guide inspired by the wizarding world was an absolute must. Need help buying for the witch, wizard, muggle or squib in your life (or looking for some new gear yourself)? Then we’ve got the list for you!
