What you can get me for my birthday

It’s that time of the year when I update my “what you can get me for… ” post. It has been some time since my last one and things have changed a little but most of the items from my previous posts didn’t leave the list. So again this year I’ve found a few items that seem reasonable for my birthday list, so I thought i’d re-purpose the list again for xmas and add a few things. Here we go… The list will probably change so come back often and it still includes some big things. In no particular order:
  • David Vantage Pro2 Weather station.  check out Ambient Weather and Provantage. You must request a price quote via email – an automatic response is returned with a new link promptly. They are not allowed to post to the public their discounted prices.
  • cool new laptop backpack like this booqbag.
  • One of these cool shirts: I particularly like the “Wi-Fi detector shirt” and the “T-Qualizer Shirt
  • An ATHF Mooninites patch. Either both Ignignokt and Err or either one of them alone. I desperately want to cover up my Real logo on my computer bag. I think I have one of these patches but can’t find it.
  • Beer Cozy for my Pabst cans!
  • Been reading more so good books. Nothing too heavy now. I like fast, easy, with short chapters
  • Washington State Liquor Gift Card – more info
  • Home Depot gift cards are nice and help offset house projects
  • I could use some more running shorts. I like the longer style, not the true runner’s shorts. Robin got me some Nikes called NikeFit and they are kind of longish like basketball shorts, but not too long, something above the knee but below the mid thigh. (can you say high maintenance?!) Oh and I like the polyester wicking fabric of course… no cotton. I’m a Medium or 33/34 waist.
  • Running shirts that are short sleeved, white or light color, like gray or light blue. I’m a large and again the sweet wicking fabric.
  • All-In-One clamp guide accessories. I recently got some great clamps at the Rockler T-Day sale and now it would be nice to have a couple of the accessories for them. Namely the Router Plate and Saw Plate for the clamps. Both can be found here.
  • the winning lottery ticket
  • The new MacBook Pro 15 inch
  • If you are already doing the MacBook, why not go a little further and also get me a Cinema Display
  • New Gas stove and range like the Dacor Epicure 48″ dual fuel. Along with that we need the Epicure Raised Vent also. We don’t want to have to put a traditional hood in.
  • I think I’ve fixed the leak in the car, so now i just need the new driver’s seat for my CRX
  • Maybe a new “CRX” like a diesel Jetta or Golf/Rabbit
  • Or Maybe just a scooter
