Doublefine's sweet matrioshkes are dead lovely -- and backordered. I grew up in a house full of these things, since they were the standard gift every time my grandparents went to Leningrad to see the family, or brought the family over for a visit, and I was delighted to discover that my daughter finds them as fascinating as I do -- especially as there are so many more variations on the designs available today.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
