Here’s a list of gift ideas for me. No, my celebrity status has not gone to my head (har har). Albany John is always asking me what I’d like for my birthday, our anniversary, and various other holidays in which giving me presents occurs. My usual answers are “I don’t know… anything Hello Kitty or… I don’t know, I’ll tell you later”. So he pinned me down, and now I figured I would post it here since I’m pretty sure it will go to his RSS feed.
But hey, you can feel free to buy me presents too. These could also make good ideas for the pseudo girly-girl in your life. But generally we girly-girls are pretty easy to handle – go to Sephora – buy something. Done.
Skirts – pencil length or A line in style. Black, brown or grey in color.
Dresses. Man I love me some pretty dresses. I could probably do with some light cotton ones for summer that aren’t all ’empire’ waist shaped and make me look all preggified.
Square neck tops
Stainless steel earrings. Just simple studs, so long as the posts are stainless steel based.
Underpants. Cause I’m sensible like that.
Unlocked cell phone. Preferably something flippy. I don’t need this toute de suite or anything, but eventually. Maybe.

The recreation of this menu at Marche at State 74. It’s one I’m actually considering going to, but there’s a 50% chance I will have plans I cannot ditch (I would be a serious jack hole if I did) on 6/13, which is the only reason I haven’t already booked a reservation. Seriously, though… $85 for that duck-centric menu AND wines (wines that sound really good to a novice like me)? Sounds like a good deal. Hell, who am I kidding, it’s probably best I can’t/don’t go since I’m sure my spazzy ass would stick out like a sore, distracting thumb.
And after today’s publication in the Times Union, I’ll bet this sells out fairly quickly.
Hell, just the fourth and main courses – those are the dishes I’d really like to try. Mmmm, duckies. Albany John, you can get a-cheffing on those dishes!
Pearls Before Swine comic books.
Another makeup case… I think Albany John is going to kill me over this one, but I think need another makeup case… The last one he bought me is like this only without the dividers. I’m sure my continual belief that I need more eye shadow is not helping either.
Books by Anthony Bourdain.
Glass or metal perfume misters. I love, love, love the Demeter Fragrances (Golden Delicious Apple… very awesome, and coincidentally, I am running low on that too) and their $5 ½ ounce sample sizes are wonderful. Now I just need to put them into something so I’m not just dabbing it on my pulse points.
Demeter Fragrances. Oh, how I love Demeter. They nail just about every scent they touch. Their Golden Delicious smells so clean and happy, and I’d like to try more of them. $5 samples are a great way to get a variety of scents, plus they usually kick in a free full size sample after $25.
A slice of non-chocolated cheesecake from my beloved Cheesecake Machismo.
That’s all I can think of now, which is way more than I thought I could think of. Also, I don’t need all of these, or anything close to them, it’s just a good guideline of stuff I like.
