Post-It Pac-Man

Post-It Pac-ManGeek crafts can be found in the strangest of places, if you know how to keep your eyes open.

Last week, I was taking a nice, meandering walk through San Francisco. I was enjoying the rare spring sunshine as I made my way through downtown, when this colorful window caught my eye.

You don’t expect to find unabashed displays of geekiness in the heart of a posh shopping/business district! Yet, there were Inky and Pinky, chasing Pac-Man across the building windows.

I’d only ever seen Post-It pixel art online before, so it was neat to see it in person. It makes me wonder about the folks who work there, though, especially since Pac is on the run from the ghosties. Is this a secret geeky cry for help? Or employees covertly letting off a little steam, aimed towards this boss?

Pac-Man Pillow

Pac-Man PillowTattooed, crafty mama Brooke (a.k.a. talking trash & wasting time on Flickr), sewed up this one-of-kind Pac-Love pillow for a Pac-Man loving friend.

Not only does it show the Pac-Couple in their pellet-munching glory, it has some sweet personal touches, like the player’s nickname in the left corner.

I think my favorite part of this, though, is the little trail of heart sequins leading Ms. Pac-Man to her Mister. Too sweet!
