What you can get me for my B-day

My birthday is less then a month away and so you probably better start thinking about that great gift you are going to get me. Every year about a week away I get the question “what do you want for you birthday” and I always don’t know what to say. Partially because I immediately think of the big things I want or need and have trouble of thinking about smaller items. Well this year I’ve found a few items that seem reasonable, so I thought i’d get the list out there for everyone. Here we go… The list will probably change so come back often and it still includes some big things. In no particular order:
  • One of these cool shirts: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/interactive/ 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.
  • A nice but not expensive digital camera that uses SD so I can use it with the item farther down the list ;-). The camera on my phone is okay, but I want to start taking nicer images. I’m talking a little basic one, not one of those full cameras where you can changed the lenses etc.
  • Beer Cozy for my Pabst cans!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Along with shorts, I could use some new running socks. I like the short ones that just cover the ankle, not the really short ones ala “bobby socks”. Again, the sweet wicking fabric. I like the ones from The Walking Company. Shoe size 9.5.
  • Running shirts, white or light color, like gray or light blue. I’m a large and again the sweet wicking fabric.
  • 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
  • The new iphone 3GS, but if you get me this, you also have to pay for at least 6 months service cuz I can’t afford it right now.
  • New Gas stove and range. One were the vent is attached and popus up from back. We don’t want to have to put a traditional hood in.
  • someone to fix my leak in my CRX before the rains start.
  • New driver’s seat for my CRX
  • Maybe a new “CRX” like a diesel Jetta or Golf/Rabbit
  • Or Maybe just a scooter
  • #1 I guess would be a job, but not starting until like September ;-). Something fun, cool, cutting edge that pays well with good benefits, flexible work schedule, open environment, lets my dog come to work, has perks like free parking and paid cell phones, game room, Macs, little or no commute and something I can retire from after 5 years. Woodworking, Renewable Energy or Computers… something creative where I can build and create be it a software app or fence or electricity.
