Are you one of those geeks who have just about everything? Your life is difficult I know, but while I’m busy playing away on the world’s smallest violin in your honor, I’m just going to mildly suggest you probably could never have enough Portal paraphernalia. Now, thanks to the kind folks over at ThinkGeek, you can finally fill that Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device sized hold in your life with dozens of game inspired goodies.

My personal favorite is the Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar, though I could easily see myself hanging a mug of Cave Johnson over my desk to help stay motivated. Cookies and mad scientists are both radically different forms of motivation, so let’s just say they’ve got something for every Portal lover in your life.

Here is the press release giving you the full run down.
