The Official Birthday Wishlist

+ a harmonica (~$10)
+ ankle socks
+ the shower tap to stop dripping
+ garbage bags (~$7)
+ tea (~$4-$15)
+ a haircut ($25)
+ a week's worth of groceries ($15)
+ moleskin with graph paper ($16)
+ measuring cups for dry ingredients
+ tickets to the stars concert in december (~$25?)
+ boyshorts from american eagle or american apparel (or you could just give me money so i can do this myself)
+ boots (~$30-$70) (dad?)
+ books are always appreciated. just to help you out, some books i am interested in reading are: "running with scissors" by augusten burroughs, anything by haruki murakami, some poetry by william carlos williams, anything by e.e cummings except for "erotic poems" because i already have that, anything by mary gaitskill except for "bad behaviour" because i already have that, anything by loorie moore, etc.

this list will likely be revised and reposted later in november. my birthday is the 27th. i will be old (er). drinks are always accepted.

before you buy me any of these incredibly useful things, i would appreciate it if you DONATED TO AUTOSTRADDLE.COM. and then if you feel like it, feel free to get me some groceries. if you're nice i will let you stay for dinner.

how can we send you presents?

my present is fragile and will be coming in january. that doesn't mean you shouldn't watch your mailbox, though.

IMPORTANT: if you are serious about sending me a present but don't live in montreal, please consider donating to autostraddle first. i'm really really serious about that, nothing would make me happier than if you gave some money to my favourite website.

if you would actually like to send me a present then you can email me [emily choo 19 at gmail dot com] and i'll send you my address. (for obvious reasons i don't want to post it here).

you guys are great. this post was mostly in jest. please don't feel pressure to buy me stuff.

your link to donate doesn't work. i'm sure most people could figure it out, but it might be worth fixing.

thanks, i should've realized paypal wouldn't let me link directly to an account. it's fixed now.
