On April 27th I’ll turn 35. Whoohoo! I like to make birthday wishlists because I always end up spending any birthday money on practical things. I don’t buy much for myself besides used books in thrift stores and coffee and it is nice to think about what I would buy if I could.
Bonus! I made myself limit my birthday wish list to items that cost less than $25 a pop. No tattoos or days at the spa. Just small bits of awesomeness.
Alice in Wonderland, I’m particularly in love with this edition / Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy / MOAWR COFFEE MUGS, literary, nerdy, or owlish
Felt tip pens! My favorites and I’m always running out / A reading is sexy shirt, hells yeah they have 3XL / A thin metal spatula, the better to flip my frying tofu
A subscription to Taproot / Frankenstein, to complete my Penguin Horror series collection / a new body pillow and pillowcase, mine looks like it has been beaten with a baseball bat
The Girl on the Train because it is out in every library / wooden cutting boards / a ticket to see Peter Hook and the Light at the Georgia Theater because JOY DIVISION!
The new Sufjan Stevens CD, Carrie and Lowell / a giftcard to Thrift Books so I can snag used Viragos / a gift card to someplace like JoAnn’s for yarn purchases (not Hobby Lobby as I am a woman and a feminist)
Yay for birthdays!
