Map Geeks Unite

Me, I'll admit to owning a couple of ESRI polo shirts. A couple of good t-shirts (my favorite is my t-shirt from the ESRI conference a couple of years ago - it shows a guy being crushed by an unfolded map - his arms and legs are visible coming out the sides of the map - and the words ' Maps Can't Hurt You' written on the map).
I also have a couple of polo shirts with our office logo on it, along with the words 'Geographer' on it (since that is my job title).
And, one more that I'll admit to - my license plate:
Okay - time for the rest of you to own up to it.

Sitting here at my desk, a NACIS slinky, a spongy rubber ball with raised continents, a globe keychain, and a ticket from my visit to Greenwich from a few years ago.

Aside from that, I saw a nifty tattoo on someone at NACIS... now that would be the ultra mapgeek thing.

Is there something wrong with his/her wrist?
Does this person become lost easily?
Does he/she become irritable when forced to read something in an offensive typeface?
Do the words "repetitive," "detailed," and "solitary" bring a smile to his/her face?
Does he/she arrive by bicycle or motorcycle?
Is this person scribbling notes in a tiny notebook and/or pda?
Does this person use a quick trip to the hardware store as an excuse to loiter for hours in the paint chip department?
Does he/she display an obsession for compact travel gear despite the fact that they never go anywhere because they are always working on a project?

I love the paint chips one....

Compared to some of you, I don't have that much. What I have though is a unique lampshade, that I made out of a discarded globe that I found cheaply (without a stand) -- I made it into a ceiling-hanging lamp instead (with a stronger bulb than a normal globe.
