    *A new addition to my standard copy/pasta:http://pinterest.com/mypantsarefancy/
    Specifically: http://pinterest.com/mypantsarefancy/do-want/ andhttp://pinterest.com/mypantsarefancy/hillcrest-apartment/

    *My Interests: running, movies, film-related reading materials, Harry Potter, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, ghey rights, learning new languages, Jack's Mannequin, The Beatles, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, 50 Shades of Grey, Ryan Gosling, Tim Burton everything, DIY and crafty things. Also, wine and expensive cheeses.

    *Design styles I love: birds/birdcages, skeleton keys

    *Anything from here: http://amzn.com/w/IBAEMY5KWVNW

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

    *Home Stuff: I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking and baking and it would be awesome to have some cool gadgets/accessories to go along with this hobby. I'm always down with designer sprinkles, fun baking cups (for cupcakes), decorating stuff (piping tips, frosting bags, etc) or other stuff like that. Preferably no cookbooks (that's what the interwebs are for!)

    *Things I would love to have but will likely never spend the money on: really nice workout clothes and running socks, cooking gadgets

    *Shirts: Usually size M, but if says anything about "running big" than size S/Youth Medium. 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 wordy. And if you happen to come across amazing pants, I'm generally a M/size 5.

    *Random stuff you may want to know:
    • I'm getting a few more small tattoos next February (http://pinterest.com/mypantsarefancy/tattoo-planning/).
    • I keep a somewhat regular blog that is mostly food-related over at http://www.mypantsarefancy.com
    • My college roommate's wedding is next April in St. Croix. It will be a huge reunion for the three of us that lived together for 4 years.
    • I'm debating trying a triathlon or marathon in the next year or two
    • I'm planning on going to Italy in the next two years (but please no "annual guides" or anything, since the information could change) (yes this is a copy/paste from the last 3 years, and yes I haven't gone to Italy... yet)
    • I go to synagogue on a semi-regular basis and am really interested in Jewish culture,
    • I FINALLY HAVE MY OWN APARTMENT so things to put in there

    *Please, no DVDs or music (unless it's on my wishlist or stuff that isn't easy to snipe from elsewhere) or giant dildos/similar gag gifts. Although I am dating someone new so if you find something really good... ;)

    I know this will be extremely disappointing to hear but no sex toys please (dildos, butt plugs, fleshlights, etc). No movies, music or anything I could download for that matter. I am not a big fan of books so no to that as well. No video games.

    Anything else is pretty much fair game. If something is nifty, cool, awesome or random then I am completely game. A fun card or board game me and my friends can play? Sure! (Already have cards against humanity and don't care for the expansions so don't send me that). Know something interesting that is science or technology related and cheap? Send me that shit, I don't know. Know of something cool for an armature car guy? Send that shit my way!

    Please PM Tassia if you need me to be more specific and she will contact me.

    lol guys, thread derail.

    Torxy, I have one small one on my inside right wrist. It's a burgundy/brownish color (not black) and says "Fortune" (my middle name).

    The ones I'm planning after I complete my next run:
    1) "watch the sky" on the instep of my left foot- it's my finisher song for every run I go out on
    2) this, either on the palm-side lowest knuckle of my right ring finger (like this http://pinterest.com/pin/75576099967679113/), or on the back-of-the-hand side location, probably a teal color: http://pinterest.com/pin/75576099967289771/
    3) this (http://pinterest.com/pin/75576099968133802/) or this (http://pinterest.com/pin/75576099968409751/), undecided on location, but small

    I'm really easy.

    -Goofy or entertaining T-shirts are always welcome. My shirt size is Small-Medium (5'8", 140lbs with an athletic build).
    -Anything that is cool and techy. Anything that can make my life easier. I love anything and everything, so it's pretty much open game.
    -Anything outdoor related. I am outside a lot doing tree work, so anything to help survive the elements is welcome!
    -Anything camping related. I want to start camping again and volunteering with the Boy Scouts in my area. Need to get equipment again!
    -Anything automotive/truck related. I drive a 2006 Chevy 2500HD Duramax LBZ. Also, maybe something entertaining for one of our work trucks (1977 Chevy C-50 and 1971 AM General M817).
    -Anything cool for the house! Cool cooking stuff, decorations, etc...).
    -Anything cool related to alcohol! I'm always interested in trying new drinks/beers. My palate is very versatile, and I enjoy trying new things.

    Gag stuff is sort of out of the question, unless it is in good taste (I would hate to hide a gift from my wife/son!). If it's something in good taste, bring it on!

    That's all I can think of off of the top of my head. Just be creative!

    That's good to know.

    Now, about my interests:

    - No books (I read so much stuff at work..... ugh) or clothing.

    - Gift cards are okay, as Tassia portrayed in her post.

    - Tech stuff / gadgets are always welcomed.

    - or surprise me with something very cool, which isn't a dildo or sex stuff, or stupid shit like of boxfull of stupid crap :)

    What he said...

    Anything smart, weird, abnormal, inappropriate, and non politically correct is totally cool... As long as it's in (reasonably) good taste. In the time that I'm not working (seems like never recently) I enjoy: Reading, being outdoors, traveling, camping, photography, torturing my liver, knick-nacks, home items, Shirts I'm somewhere at the medium point of medium and large, and in a G.W. Bailey M.A.S.H. voice VEEEEE--HICKLES.

    Not sure which is funnier. That you tattooed your own name on your arm, or that your middle name is Fortune. :) My Dad had his name tattooed on his arm, but we always figured it was for when he washed up drunk in Tijuana, so that he could be identified and returned to the naval base.

    I'm actually quite fond of it. My parents picked it because I was the first female grandchild born on wither side of the family. (I have 6 middle names total... have we played this game before? I forget.)

    Anyway, as far as the stamp goes, I feel like the name is something like a talisman. I put it on my inside wrist so I'd always be able to see it. 1. To remind me that I am fortunate, and 2. To bring fortune (not necessarily monetary) into my life.

    Jeez, I really don't want/need anything this Christmas but T3D Secret Santa is too much fun to pass up. I forget who gave me that screaming rubber chicken a few years back, but it's been a huge hit. My brother brings it to parties, lol. Actually, everything I've gotten from T3D SS has been perfect and I appreciate it all!

    Gag gifts are okay I guess, but my tastes are so weird that I'll probably like whatever you consider a gag gift. I love smokin' hot hot sauce and old people candy. Strong flavors ftw!

    If you happen to find yourself in a thrift store and see a terribly tacky sweater or button-up, I'm a small-medium. Don't be like my girlfriend and get me a size XL sweater because it had a nice pattern. :p

    I've been lusting after an adapter for my camera so I can use my old Minolta lenses. I'm also a guitarist, so I'd never say no to strings for my acoustic or electric. Even accessories are cool. 35mm film is always a winner too. Again, weird stuff is king.

    I recently discovered Lush soap and the different scents are appealing. I'd never shell out $7 for a bar of soap, but wouldn't mind getting it as a gift. The weirder the better.

    Strange food/drink (mmmm booze), tea, and glassware is always a winner too, especially those summer sausage and mustard boxes they sell at mall kiosks, lol. I love cooking, and could use a pie bird or an iron for grilled sandwiches. Wait, those are heavy.

    But ultimately it's up to you. I'm sure I'll be thrilled with whatever shows up at my doorstep. Last year I did Reddit's SS and got a batch of homemade cookies (risky but yummy), a framed print of one of my photos, and a really thoughtful note from a woman who runs a framing store.

    PMS levels checked!

    As far as my interests go I'm a geek about a bunch of stuff:

    beer (duh)

    action/ scifi movies especially post apocalyptic and indie stuff (no anime crap though) like Moon and Children of Men

    gadgets, I've got a Raspberry Pi that finally shipped and an Ouya on order. I've been debating getting into some arguing stuff.

    Books, it's got to super interesting nonfiction or really well written fiction to hold my interest. Similar taste to movies (last full series if finished was Spin by Robert Charles Wilson). Good history or alternate history books would be cool too.

    Hmmm, anything else that seems nifty and/ geeky. Friend just got me into Ticket to Ride and Card Against Humanity but honestly don't have time for or the interest in more advanced RPG stuff.

    My only request is no gag or sexy stuff, I can pick that up on my own. ;)
