Pleasant Surprise

Let's see, what kind of "novelty item" might a geek go for? A silly tome regarding the who, what, where, and why of mustaches? A five-minute shower timer you can bring under the nozzle to save your household some water? How about a temporary tattoo that makes it look like your hand is an alligator or a cheetah or a parrot? Can't say, really. But those are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the myriad doodads at Pleasant Surprise. (And you don't have to be a nerd to get a kick out of the place.)
