Wish list

This seems like such an appropriate thing to put when the title of the blog is now "Shiny Things"....

Most of you who've known me for a while know this, but it bears repeating: I am not of the school of thought that says "it's the thought that counts". For a long time I told people just to please not give me anything; I actually preferred it that way - I was opposed to all the materialism, plus I just feel really awkward and uncomfortable and guilty getting stuff I don't want. Now I've eased off - if it's something you know I'll like, please go ahead, and I will appreciate and enjoy it. But no obligatory gift-giving, and no random stuff that "girls your age tend to like" or, heaven forbid, anything "trendy" (although I do like tech stuff...).

So, with these caveats in mind... here is my wish list.
