Your first warning

The birthday — a big one, my 35th, in fact — is in one month and one day, so I thought it would be a good time to update the Amazon Wish List. Of course, no one’s actually obliged to buy me anything — not even Mom and Dad, who’ve been so kind as to always give me more than enough stuff. However, if you’re in a gift-giving mood, I’m not going to stop you.

“Break on throooough to the other siiiide…” The copyright date for the book is 1993, but the cover screams 1968. I really dig the psychedelia-meets-Welsh-troupe artwork.

You’ll notice that the accordion books are pretty cheap — you’d think that the accordion wasn’t a popular instrument, judging by their prices.

Yes, I am a grown-up. My current set of dishware is looking a little rough, and cinnabar matches the colour scheme of the house — especially the dining room — very well.

Asking for flatware is part of the “Just Gay Enough” philosophy.

“Knockin’ me out with those American thighs!” I’ve lived the lyrics, and now I’d like the album, please.

Remember, folks, it’s “Just Gay Enough“, so I’m countering the flatware with the quintessential cock rock album from the almighty AC/DC. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Hayseed Dixie (a hillbilly tribute to AC?DC) are also on my wish list.

And while you’re at it, you may want to check my pal George’s Amazon Wish List. His birthday is a few weeks after mine.
