Here’s stuff I want. Feel free to buy me subsets of it periodically, perhaps in alignment with your preferred religious calendar or the accumulation of Gregorian calendar years elapsed since my birth.

Money, Money, Money

I like my assets like I like my water: liquid. Cold, hard cash is the ideal gift.

  1. Pound sterling, ideally.

Sundries

  1. Whisk(e)y (smokey/peaty or otherwise weird preferred—Laphroaig is a safe bet);
  2. a cast iron pot;
  3. mixology equipment; and
  4. a 24-hour analogue clock with a whiteboard backing (so I can plan my day out and have the clock tick through it).1I don’t think this actually exists, but I want it to. There’s this, but I think it was just the guy’s MA piece and his Web site is dead now. There’s also this [Amazon.de], but as far as I can tell it’s 12-hour which is no good. There’s this 24-hour clock, and I suppose if I can write on the clock face cover (and erase what I write) then that would work as an alternative to a dry erase backing.

Books

  1. The First Folio of Shakespeare: In Modern Type (ed. Neil Freeman);
  2. PoC||GTFO, Volume II (ed. Manul Laphroaig); and
  3. Composition No. 1 (Marc Sapota).
  4. How to Bomb the U.S. Gov’t (Million Dollar Extreme)
  5. [Publish Date TBA] The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1: Fundamental Algorithms (4th ed.) (Donald Knuth)

  2. LOOW superfine (220) t-shirt (black);
  3. LOOW G3 boxers;
  4. LOOW S-70 socks;
  5. LOOW NSS-600 short socks;
  6. trainers (44EU/9.5UK);2I hate garish Fisher-Price Nike nonsense; the nicest-looking trainers I’ve ever had were a £13 pair of Podiums from ShoeZone, but they’re not great shoes and fall apart before long.
