My Wish List

I have seen a few people using this idea for a post so I figured I may as well use it as well. I am having a hard time thinking of stuff I want. I never know any more. I see stuff I want and then when it comes time to pay for it I always feel guilty and change my mind. Funny how that doesn't happen when I buy stuff for the kids.

This would be awesome. I used to read the Lord Of The Rings trilogy almost every year until the movies came out and then I guess I kinda got overloaded with it all. But these books are awesome. This is a set of three books.

I always look at the front of a book when I get it to see if it has a map. That seems to be a pretty good indicator that its good for some reason. If the author put in the effort to detail his world enough to draw a map of it, it seems to stand to reason that the story and characters are well developed as well. This edition is over the top with maps. Its huge and it folds out. Sweeeeeeeet. My hands want to hold those books. Yessssss precioussssss.

I have always wanted to learn to play fiddle. Not sure why. I just love it. This is a cheap one, but hey I may suck at it. If I don't suck at it then I will get a better one. I really, really want this. To bad I don't believe in Santa no more or I would ask that fat old man for this for sure. Sigh... oh to be a kid again. Or rich would work too.

This is actually something affordable. Needed a tuner for years just never got one.

I want a new phone so bad. If you are gonna get a phone these days its crazy. So many options. I want one that plays music so I can get rid of my ipod. I have had it for 3 or 4 yrs now and the screen got cracked the day after I got it. You can only see half the screen so its hard to find the songs sometimes. So if I get one of these that's two birds with one stone. That makes it much more frugal at not all excessive...right?

Carolyn gets ticked off at me when I always want the same thing for every occasion. Fathers Day, birthday, Christmas, anniversary, whatever. I always say the same thing....a watch. I love them. I want so many that I have to get a case for them and have them all laid out in it. A different watch for every occasion, outfit, or day even. Oh yes please. So its hard to pick one cause I love them all. This one is nice but its about $2,000

This one is $375 still a little out of range at the moment

Here are a couple that are $60 on ebay

Okay that's all I can think of right and this searching for images and adding them is seriously time consuming. I gotta come up with some better ideas to blog about. I could do like Chris and post pics of our animal...but I don't really like that cat very much most of the time.(sorry Carolyn..its the truth). And I don't think I am up for the whole honesty post. Not now and maybe not ever.

Oh heh this is my favorite song right now. Listened to a bunch of times on the way home from Sask and just cant seem to get enough of it. Thanks again Trav. I don't know how to imbed stuff in here yet and I have no idea how to find the file to do it so this is the best I could do. Cheers

I bought Peter that exact book for our anniversary one year, maybe the first. It's absolutely stunning and well worth the money. I love looking at it.

I used to have a tuner, some kids stole it from me at camp. Lame.

If you like Lord of the Rings enough to read it that often, and if a map is what makes a book good, then (maybe you've already read them) read Tad Williams' books Shadowmarch. Seriously. The third one is due out in January and the wait is KILLING me. You can thank me later.

You know, you could get lucky and get at least two of these gifts. After all, your birthday is on the 9th and then there is Christmas. Good luck with that. :)

Haha speaking of books with maps... The Sword of Truth series is AWESOME! Reading it right now. It has a map in it. I would have liked it if it was more detailed, but... it's at least got one.

Becky November 17, 2009 at 9:00 PM  

You guys. (Carrie too.) Seriously. Tad Williams. Shadowmarch series. Oh man. I can't WAIT for January.

Avaelyn November 18, 2009 at 8:41 PM  

Tad Williams. Shadowmarch. Good. Noting. Will put on my list. Which doesn't actually exist. But I'll read it one day.

GO for the Fiddle Dave! Seriously! I would love to hear you playing that someday!

Try George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. The first book is "A Game of Thrones". I wouldn't waste money buying them, but they are actually excellent reads. Only problem is the series isn't finished and you have to keep rereading the books over and over every time he releases the latest installment because a guy forgets what happened previously. I hate doing that. Kinda ticks me off a little. On second thought, skip it.

lord of the rings?? come on dave... you want archie comics, they're a little more your level, aren't they? and yeah. i think an instrument would be great. then you could move back and we could jam :P

I always wanted to play the fiddle too. My dad had one and could play a little. It would make some horrible noises sometimes and then he would stop and say it needed more rosin. I needed lots of rosin. I used to sing along. My mom hated it cause we were so bad but I loved it. I loved it that we were doing something and did not have to be perfect at it to enjoy ourselves. I loved him for it. Oh, ya. He really only knew one song, When the Saints Go Marching On. That must have drove my mom nuts too.

Christine November 29, 2009 at 8:14 PM  

I did not need lots of rosin. the fiddle needed lots of rosin. Hee hee You can go ahead and post pictures of your cat. You do not have to love her to do that.
