I never plan out my birthday – presents I want, places I’d like to visit, things I’d enjoy doing – and so my best birthdays have been the one where Jenn (who knows me perfectly) does the heavy lifting. See my 30th birthday recap for evidence.
Anyhow, since it’s a Friday and we’re less than a fortnight (that’s 2 weeks for those of you scoring at home) from #32, I thought I’d offer a (mostly) tongue-in-cheek list of things I want for my birthday.
Plus, I’ve done nothing but lists all week, so why change now?
- Crystal Head Vodka
- A suit to make me look like Don Draper
- Console Wars Veteran – Pin
A glass skull as a bottle? Check.
Dan Aykroyd as your pitch man/financial backer? Check.
An 8-minute ad that reads like a Ghostbusters 3 viral video? Check.
I *so* have to own a bottle of this stuff. For my birthday.
I’m completely harping on the topic of Mad Men, but since I’m going as Don Draper for Halloween, I need the suit.
Here’s the interview that makes me love the character, the show and the actor, Jon Hamm, even more than I should: Jon Hamm, star of TV’s Mad Men, reveals the secrets of manliness in a postmodern world
I would never really pay â‚¬18.00 for this (or expect a loved on to do so) but I think I’ve earned an honorarium or some kind. Maybe a WoW action figure for my desk at work?
I really don’t need more stuff in my life. I just want more time to be with the folks I love, taking advantage of all the stuff.
