It's soon to be my birthday (the big 34) on 7th December and my partner asked my what I wanted.

I had no idea.

She asked me to make a list, but I'm stumped for something that is not simply something I could buy for myself.

So with that in mind, can anyone help me out?

Just for fun, can anyone suggest a present for me based only on what you have read of my posts?

The best one wins a cookie :)

Coffee House, please.

Btw: 1000 posts, yay!

Something handmade by her, if she is a crafty sort.

Or, a homemade meal of all your favorite dishes, if she is a good cook.

Or a song, poem, or drawing created by her.

What about a photograph/portrait of her?

A night of wild wild sex. It's something that you can't just go out and buy :p

why does it have to be something you can't just buy yourself?

i asked for a coat for christmas last year, and i could have bought it myself, but knowing my pooh bear bought it for me makes it even warmer.

have her take you on a trip somewhere so you can make nifty memories.

Interests
It's soon to be my birthday (the big 34) on 7th December and my partner asked my what I wanted.

I had no idea.

Have her get you some really nice cymbals, and then have her ship them to a San Pedro, California address that I will provide via email...

What?

No? Is that a bad idea? Alright, fine.....

All jokes aside, this is kind of hard since we don't really know what you're in to. I don't know what you like.

Tell me some of your interests and and hobbies. We can take it from there.

Re: Interests
That's the thing, I was hoping only to rely on what people know of me from the content of my pro evo posts etc.

You think people oughta know you from your one thousand posts - and their response is, "Who?"

Humbling, ain't it? :p
