I can tell, because everyone keeps asking me what I want for Christmas. Everyone always does this, and that’s great and all, but there’s some problems with the idea. Specifically, I never remember anything when I’m asked about it. I think of plenty of stuff in the meantime, but never when someone’s around. Then I remembered that I have a blog.
Now, this isn’t an entirely novel idea, I’ll admit, but I’m going to take this space to store a listing of all my desired items for the holidays, and expand on it as more come to mind. I’ll keep my list below the fold, but I’m going to ask all of you to join in with me. Let’s face it; we all have fairly positive opinions of each other on the average, and may want to purchase gifts.
So leave your lists in the comments below if you’ve got them (or feel free to link to Amazon Wish Lists or whatever). Oh, and if you decide to gift someone, you might want to make a note so people know to check with you. And that means, if you’re buying for someone, you may want to check with anyone else who’s buying for them.
Chadwick’s Suggested Gift List
Okay, first off, my Amazon Wish List, which contains a few suggestions. There’s lots that didn’t make it on there, but I don’t feel motivated enough right now to track down anything and everything of interest.
(Added Nov. 21) Rugged Tool Bag. I’m not even sure what I’d do with it, but it’s really cool and on sale.
(Added Nov. 26) A good way to brew coffee that’s not my 34 oz French Press. The press works well for 2 people, but when I just want coffee for myself, it seems a bit much. I don’t much care what this other brewing method is, whether it’s a smaller french press (Bodum if at all possible, if you do this), a coffee maker, whatever (and those links are simply suggestions, I’m not that picky). Unless Josh wants to make suggestions.
(Added Nov. 26) And for those who want to just gift via Steam (or not, if you want to hunt IRL), in no particular order:
Actually, if you’re feeling generous, both LOOM and The Dig ($5 each) come in the LucasArts Adventure Pack with two Indiana Jones games (which I’m vaguely interested in, but not enough to request) for the price of $10. So you can throw in two Indiana Jones adventure games for 1¢ extra.
(Added Nov. 30) Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman.
More to be added as it comes to me. Or not, as I forget it before returning to a computer.
