You know, like the way hobbits celebrate their birthdays? I know that Meta graciously posted a URI to waffles on Google Images, but how about something more substantial like a few rep points or a special one time only badge?

What, yours hasn't arrived yet? I got mine in the mail this morning and it is fantastic. I can't stop using it. It takes a lot of effort just to stop fiddling with it long enough to type this post.

Anyone else get theirs?

First, I can't believe how easy it is to use and how fun it is. Second, it's great how it integrates with Stack Overflow so well no matter where I am or how I'm using it.

Fortunately its battery lasts 48 hours without a recharge. I know what I won't be doing tonight: sleeping!

Let's all post pictures of ours when we get them. Mine's blue. What colour is yours?

Evidently mine was the first to arrive, so I won't gloat about it. Just know that it is the best thing ever and Jeff is a really cool guy to have sent them out to the top Meta users for its birthday. Thanks again, man.

  • I just got mine! Perhaps you need 10k rep to get it... all I know is: "It's AWESOME!" – juan Jul 2 '10 at 14:48
  • @Juan: Isn't it great? It's unbelievable! What colour is yours? – Welbog Jul 2 '10 at 14:49
  • It's blue also, I don't know if it comes in other colors; let's wait to see what color the others get – juan Jul 2 '10 at 14:50
  • Mine glows. It came last night. – squillman Jul 2 '10 at 15:10

  • I got mine too. I'm going to sell it on craigslist now! – JohnB Jul 7 '10 at 19:36

Look at the top of the page. We all got waffles.

Mmmmm. Waffles.

(As long as they're not cooked on this.)

    What? Did someone say "let's GoogleImagesBomb the word 'waffles'"? I could have sworn I heard someone say "let's GoogleImagesBomb the word 'waffles' with photos of unicorns." – Pops Jul 2 '10 at 15:22

People who were around since Meta's beginning can finally earn the Yearling badge. That's a present, aye?

    I was quite surprised on Monday when I got the badge. Time flies when you're having fun. (And as one frog said to the other, time's fun when you're having flies.) – mmyers Jul 2 '10 at 14:27

    @mmyers Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. – Grace Note Jul 2 '10 at 14:32

    Hey, I do believe today is Bad Joke Day! – mmyers Jul 2 '10 at 14:55
  • I'm so using that in the future. – squillman Jul 2 '10 at 15:09
  • So actually its birthday was celebrated a bit too late, or the yearling badges were handed out too early? – Arjan Jul 3 '10 at 12:29

Happy second birthday, meta. :)

    ...I'm utterly amazed that it isn't until 10:00AM EST that I realize that today is actually Friday... – Grace Note Jul 2 '10 at 14:07
