    KAIN: Removed gBdavidx and Lurker



    And now, what we all came here for: Post what you want or are interested in in this thread!

    **IF YOU'RE OK WITH GAG GIFTS (IE GIANT DILDO, ETC) PLEASE NOTE THAT CLEARLY**


    My Interests: movies, film-related reading materials, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, learning new languages, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, and Tim Burton everything. Also, wine.

    *Anything from here: http://astore.amazon.com/bakerella-20

    *Books: http://www.amazon.com/Pocket-Lawyer...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1228666303&sr=8-1
    http://www.amazon.com/Contracts-Film-Television-Industry-Litwak/dp/1879505460/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_c

    *Shirts: Usually size M, but if says anything about "running big" than size S. I'd wouldn't mind getting a black T3D ladies shirt, otherwise I like most and have few from defunker or threadless. Generally I like the ones that are really artsy, less words

    *Gift Cards (I promise, these are awesome and in no way say "i didn't feel like putting effort into this"): Jamba Juice, Victoria's Secret, Macy's, American Eagle, Express, Sephora, JC Penny, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, etc etc

    *Electronics: I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a laptop case. My Lappy is 17.1".

    *Home Decorating: i love picture frames, preferably black or neutral tones

    *Random stuff you may want to know: I'm planning on going to Italy in the next two years (but please no "annual guides" or anything, since the information could change), I'm starting to get more and more into Jewish culture, I'm hopefully getting my own place in the next 8-9 months, so I'll need things to put in there

    *PLEASE NO GAG GIFTS OR RANDOM CRAP

    Just a heads up, looks like gbdavidx is not doing it this year so he should probably be removed from the list. My source is from reading his last post in the other SS thread.

    I like Express - Medium shirts
    Interests include anything tech related
    360, ps3, pc games
    tech books

    I'm being kinda vague, so put some thought into it. I've been here a long ass time.

    No gag gifts, please. Although I could use a new pair of jesus sandals...jk

    Also, no movies or music as others have mentioned.

    Mr. Ali is right. I tried to post before 1 oclock, but that was when the site was having hacking problems ;)

    Sorry to make things uneven, maybe lurker can buy 2 people gifts this year so he doesn't have to spend a lot of money on just one person ;)

    Size S shirt and I love bright colored (but not overly gay) clothing. A Tweak logo shirt would be awesome too! Also like keepin' it classy w/ Express and the like. :)

    I also enjoy playing guitar and piano. I'm also into circuit bending and weird electronic/digital stuff. Odd musical instruments excite me.

    Books are fun. Art stuff too.

    Gift cards for clothing stores are great too, just no iTunes gift cards. If you send me one, I know you're regifting. No movies either, I know how to torrent.

    But don't let that limit you, I've been posting for a long time. I trust you guys AND I'm okay with gag gifts, just as long as there's something else there too. Unfortunately, I have to have it shipped home instead of at school... keep it discreet. With that said, I'd still love a bottle of wine or some gin. :)

    Books, not simple books but something that will cause thoughts.

    Home depot gift card

    No gag gifts please.

    I'd rather be pleasantly surprised this time around. I've usually gone back through my recipient's past posts to find something that they've mentioned being 'into' in order to make my gift decisions, I'd appreciate the same done for me this year, or whatever you think seems like an interesting/thoughtful gift.

    No gag gifts please. Thanks.

    -T-shirts - I like colorful graphic tees as well. Size M
    -Beer - Micros/specialty beers. Especially IPAs, Quads, Imperial Stouts, Imperial Porters, etc.
    -Wine - Malbec is my favorite, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc. No Cab Sauv or whites, please. Cab blends are ok, though.
    -Coffee - Specialty stuff, for espresso use.
    -Accessories for Wine/Coffee/Beer
    -Books - Non-fiction only. Probably not the best idea since I have quite a few in my queue as it is.
    -360/PS3 Games
    -Running stuff

    Edit: The most AWESOME GIFT IMAGINABLE would be a home brew kit. Though I think it is slightly out of the price range, at least for a decent one.

    Also, no gag gifts please!

    NO movies music or porn

    NO gift cards, although they are handy i prefer something with a little more personality from a member.

    I dont read books often but i do enjoy anything science and future tech

    I could really use a new hat or one of those beanie visor hats for winter. neutral/earthy colors only. no nike or namebrand logo type shit

    No gag gifts

    Books: Antique/Early Edition/Old works of non-fiction please. Something that would make my book collection look even more pretentious. Edit: UNLESS you find a nice old copy of Dune. I've been looking for a good condition early edition for awhile.

    Misc: Computer tools or something useful for someone who's on the road a lot for work.

    Cooking: I do a lot of cooking so anything helpful in the kitchen would be nice. Spices, knives, bowls, pans etc..

    Beverage: Tea, scotch or micro brews would be lovely. I'm a fan of loose leaf tea but bagged is fine. A good bottle of scotch runs over $25 in most stores so unless you're getting a deal maybe just forget about it. And beer.. I love everything from Heffeweizen to the thickest ports. I drink a lot of east coast micro brews so something good from the west coast would be a treat.

    I don't own a PS3 or a working 360 so no console games. PC is fine.

    Other than that, surprise me!

    Lurker: You want in and was forgotten, or you don't want to participate for real?

    I added you in the meantime.

    No gag/adult gifts for me, I have 3 small children at home. Don't buy me movies, I have a ridiculous movie collection so you would probably be buying me a duplicate.

    My shirt size is XL, PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PC Games, Tech books (Someone bought me an Unreal Engine book in a previous year and I LOVED it), power tools (really any useful tools, except I just bought a fancy new soldering iron), love size 12 Puma shoes (even the cheap ones), not sure what else.

    When do we find out who we get?

    Me! It looked like a pretty good book. I'm pretty sure most of that information will roll over for their next few engines. Their editor never changes much.

    I like almost everything? Not really interested in clothing. And also no games, movies, books or music please. (that's what usenet is for lol).

    Maybe some sort of home decor? or anything nifty you find that I could show off to my friends, I dunno. I am terrible at asking for things :\ I have a pretty modern/contemporary asthetic going on here. I love crate and Barrel, or IKEA.
    I also like to put together electronics (soldering, reading wiring diagrams, etc)
    Also, I love Saltwater fishing, I do it all the time

    No gag gifts though. Gah I suck at this.

    Oh, guess I should post some interests too.

    Uh, like most it seems, I'm not really interested in gag gifts.

    I don't play games, don't need anything to wear, not interested in movies/music/software.

    Eh, be creative I guess, but I'm more interested to something that can be used more than once, somewhat practical things, but you know, not toooo serious. Have some fun.
