Annual Gift Giving Day List!
It’s that time of year again! I love getting presents for people. I spend a lot of time trying to find something perfect. I’m all about unique and interesting and thoughtful gifts, something that shows that I was really intent on finding something the giftee will like.
It just seems to me that that’s the entire point. Every year I recieve gifts like toiletries and bags of socks, and these are the gifts that cement my conviction to not do that. those are the kinds of gifts that say “I was at wall-mart and this was on sale” as opposed to “I was thinking about who you are and what you love and chose something appropriate to your likes and tastes because I care about you.”.
I hate to complain about it, I really do. It makes me sound like an asshole I know. I’m not looking for expensive gifts. I’m not really looking for gifts at all. If I didn’t get anything I’d be fine with that. Honestly, I’d rather receive nothing than receive a gift that was bought out of obligation and shows no thought. I’d rather hang out with you than receive a present that means nothing.
I’ve heard the complaint that I’m hard to shop for, which I think is ridiculous. Walk in to any Toys R Us or comic shop and you’re going to find any number of things that will make me happy and be pretty cheap. DVDs, comics, toys, star wars. You’re covered. However, there are those special items that I would give my left arm for, and since you won’t know unless I tell you, I present them to you here. Be aware, this is my “dream” list. I expect NOTHING from this list. This is the list I give to my billionaire friends. Still, regardless of outcome, this shit is of da hook, in the parlance of our times.

Worlds Finest Star Wars Mugs!
These are the greatest Star Wars mugs of all time. They were made back in the 70s. You can usually find them on ebay. I’ve never owned a mug that was MY mug, but one or both of these would clearly fill the bill. I think I’m the only person at work who doesn’t have a personal mug sometimes, and I crave the acceptance of the mob :p
