Christmas is only six days away, and if you've already done your shopping and just twiddling your thumbs until the big day might I suggest building a Gingerbread house? Not just your regular run of the mill Gingerbread house mind you, I'm talking something elaborate that breaks down to your core essence of geek! Something that will take planning, elaborate research, and lots and lots of mistakes to capture! Something so beautiful children will cry when they see it, and you'll get violently aggressive if they go anywhere near it. These pictures below are of that essence, and from what it looks like it was well worth it.
