wish list

I hate to disappoint you, but the title of this blog is exactly as it seems.


You see, dear reader, my 31st birthday is coming up in (oh, I don’t know…)11 days.  11 DAYS!  And I know (hope/assume/wish/like to think) that you’re just wasting away wracking your brain trying to think of the perfect gift.  Well, mes amies, I’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you!  I made an amazon.com wish list for you to peruse at your leisure.  And there are essentially only 2 items on that list:  books and movies.  I didn’t say there was only one of each item…


So, to help you navigate the wish list, here’s an order of the most coveted items (again, I know you’re relieved to know what to get me now) from most wanted to slightly-less-wanted and divided by category.  FYI: I tend to prefer hardback books but still love paperback (I don’t own [nor do I wish to own] a Kindle or Nook or any other electronic reading device), and I am in no way, shape, or form opposed to pre-owned items.


Without further ado, I give you The Wish List:
