Birthday List

Mum: What do you want for your birthday?
Me: A digital rebel XT.
Mum: How much is that?
Me: About $1500.
Mum: So… What else do you want for your birthday?

Jade commented that it’s hard to think of something to give as a 21st gift and I have to agree – I’m still trying to find something perfect for Candy (start with the hints girl) – she suggested I should write a list, I have, and here it is…

  1. I don’t recommend getting her the violin – as far as violins go, anything that costs under $1000 probably isn’t worth playing. So, yah.

  2. Now, 1500 dollars wold you mom spend that much?? If I asked my old man for that he give me a kick in the back side and say that you birth day gift( my dad from the old school) lol wold never get a gift that is worth that much. Anyway, I hope you get what you want for your birthday

    Dan

    P/S I hope this is the right post this time lol lol

  3. I have that Logitech mouse on my G5 at work. It’s very nice and well worth the money.

    BTW, the text box for replies overruns your right column links in Safari.

  4. I got some curious perfume for my 21st on wednesday, I think i can safely say thatwas the only thing ms spears has ever done right 😉 it’s lovely.

    My mum gave me some money to put towards a holiday as well. Maybe you and some friends could go somewhere when your feeling healthier??

    But you can’t go wrong with gift certificates, maybe even jewellery??

  5. Francey: I’m only a beginner, not a Symphony Orchestra member, so a $1000 violin would be a bit of an over kill for twinkle, twinkle little star.

    Dan M: it was a joke, that’s why she said “So… What else do you want for your birthday?”

    Natedog: UGG boots can be worn out.

    JK: can you email me a screenshot? I’m Mac less, so I can’t see what you’re talking about.

    Nicole: I have to agree, I’ve smelt curious and it is divine.

    Fiona: My friend has a yellow one, not sure what brand it is though.

  6. Why do you want one of the dick smith tool kits? they are cheap and nasty and you won’t even use half of the tools. plus they are designed for end users.

  7. //…plus they are designed for end users.//

    lol, is that a euphemism for something? As for violins, mine has sat in a cupboard for a year now. I found it a bloody nightmare to play. (Mail me if you wanna 2nd hand violin, btw…)

  8. Clearly, I’m going to have to put “no unsolicited advice” in the comments disclaimer, because some of you seem to love giving it.

    Mark, sounded like one. And I will email you about the violin.

  9. Mum: What do you want for your birthday?
    Me: A Motorbike.
    Mum: They’re dangerous. What else do you want for your birthday?
    Me: I don’t know…
    *A month and a half goes by*

    How about a home made stuffed spank the monkey softie for your friend.

  10. DSLRS are all I dream about these days, I buy mass amounts of photography magazine just to drool over how amazingly unaffordable they actually are. I asked for one for my recent birthday, my mother didn’t even grace me with a “wth are you talking about?” stare. A Rebel XT would make my day but the Nikon D70 is my god. *looks over her shoulder at the mazines* =S

    Birthday presents… ughhhh! I bought my friend two bottles of wine for her 26th because I’m that lame. I had no idea what to get her, I even went to London on the look out and came back with ziltch. Good luck with that, you’re gonna need it!

  11. War Eagle: they’re not meant to look good, they’re meant to keep your feet warm.

    Jade: I don’t buy those magazine anymore, too many cool things, no money to buy them.

    Cafedave: yeah it was a joke, I’d never ask my mother to buy me something that expensive… Unless she won the lotto.

  12. The Logitech MX 1000 cordless laser mouse I would like myself for Christmas, just wonder wether it would work under Mandriva Linux, hmmmmm . as always I assume it says something like “Windows/MacOS”… :-/

  13. Out of curiosity, do you have anything on the needles now? I just finished the Alien Illusion Scarf from Stitch’n’Bitch & now I’m working on a secret something for a friend 😉

  14. JK: Thanks.

    Nafcom: I’m not sure, might be an idea to email logitech.

    Linds: Nothing, my needles are bare (the horror!). I’ve always wanted to geta copy of Stich’n’Bitch, but they don’t seem to stock it down under. 😕 I hope the secret something turns out good. Feel free to join my forum- there’s a knitting section – and chat about knitting. 🙂

  15. @Kitta: Already did email Logitech: “Unfortunately we cannot make any statement than that we do not offer any drivers for Linux and DOS.

    However MSI emailed me that they try to get MSI Taiwan to re-insert USB Mouse Legacy (=PS/2 emulation for USB Mice) in the motherboard I plan to buy/wish for Christmas (will probably look like a BIOS update, if they do).

    Heh, hope I didn’t boring you now! 😀 If so, then sorry
