really just want time off to read for pleasure and bake
given that most of my presents from Mrs Chuff are clothes. She treats me like a Ken doll but at least I never have to set foot in Topman.
Trying to hint to her that I'd like some good non-fiction for Christmas but it's hard to bring into conversation naturally.
a handy robot mannequin that also sits and watches Dawson's Creek with her when I'm otherwise disposed.
only be good for buying smaller clothes?
Only 11 more sleeps before I can listen to Just Like Christmas on loop.
got to have rules. Though I'm already deep in to Mulled Wine Season.
a new wardrobe
My own place
Looking forward to eating all the food and drinking #alltheport more than anything this year.
In the end, they were happy to swap my boots for a smaller pair, which is excellent customer service. On the other hand, they did take weeks and weeks to sort it, and sent the replacements to the wrong address, then when they did arrive, they were bright blue knee-high size sixes, BUT eventually I got the right pair. Now I just need to chase them for a replacement code to register them. So in summary - excellent, but a bit haphazard.
Glad it finally got sorted though. I'm going for the Ox Blood For Life boots I think (well, that's what I tried on at the weekend and hinted to parents).
And a new coat
Will end up getting comics, vinyl and books. This I can deal with ;)
that will surely not work very well in the first place, and then break entirely by hogmanay (assuming it doesn't get eaten by a dog before then.)
It's going to be this year's buzz lightyear/ furrby for the narcissistic woman.
I was very confused about your post before which my mind auto-corrected to either 'curding my dresses' or 'custarding my tressle', both of which sound delicious and would support your dogs desire to eat them.
I just don't now what I'm thinking with this contraption. I think I'll just go for an African goat.
my mum keeps asking me what i want for my birthday. i don't know.
yet sometimes I'm like, oh i would love that but would never really buy it for myself. Which is excellent gift fodder, and which is why I've started noting stuff down.
I want a wife. As in a 1950s housewife. I got home last night form work about midnight and had to cook my own dinner, put on a laundry, do some chores, sort out my clothes for today. And this morning I'm up, gettingmyself ready and fixing my own breakfast and coffee.
compare and contrast guy I share an office room with- he gets home at midnight to loving prepared meal, all laundry done, and probably a reasonably satisfactory blowjob. Wakes up to ironed clothes and a cooked breakfast. He can turn a blind eye that she's probably boffing her yoga instructor.
Seriously, fuck this shit.
Must be less subtle in future.
Surely though it starts with her being a girlfriend and wife thereafter?!
Maybe it's because its winter, the nights are getting colder and its coming for christmas but i am really really missing having someone around right now.
Someone to come home to and sit around the kitchen with whilst cooking some food over a bottle of wine as you catch up on your days. Someone to cosy up with on the sofa whilst the pish weather rattles the windows. Someone to get into bed with and hold close.
I really don't want a girlfriend.
Or: for my loved ones to accept that I don't want to receive presents and I understand that their feelings towards me are not diminished in the slightest by them not buying me things I don't need or would otherwise have bought for myself anyway.
Or: to be able to think of a handful of inexpensive, easy to acquire presents for my loved ones to buy me to address the above situation.
well, i am buying that for myself. that's it.
No idea who Aaron Rodgers is but I sincerely, SINCERELY hope it's an NFL shirt and you wear it out.
I'll wear Jimmy Fat Shirt with it if you want.
hand blenders so I'll probably just try her first.
A bit of bunse to help buy flights to the US
Bottle of whiskey
Really I just want some help with the flights, but if they want to get me anything else I'll given them my Amazon wishlist to have a look at.
I can't imagine getting that much music by one artist in one go.
I would like the Thundercat record on vinyl. I'll settle for that.
To a gym directly next door to my house. Pref with a heated tunnel connecting the two.
You haven't thought this through.
seems like ages since I got any
haven't got a new one in about 10 years but i like this one.
also need a suit jacket maybe. how much do they cost?
Other than that not bothered. Just excited to spend Christmas in London and Wales with my mam.
and get them good gift.
ready for the playoffs
the jeans used to be £65
sale time is still good for the coats though
Still their stuff is good quality and built to last
my dad said he's getting me a bike
would say a PS4 but idk if I play games enough atm
subscription to linux format
quite happy just to see my family tbh
a machete (parang)
and some night vision equipment
but my Mrs Knees, my sons and my mum, always dont get me these.
or failing that, an electronic sweeper (not a hoover).
A pestle and mortar
A weekend bag
Some Zidane artwork
DVDs and that
even though I insist that the xmas eve freebie is enough
or some guitar pedals, not had anything new on that front for a while. Then boring crap like jeans and boxers and socks. Socks really take the magic out of Christmas
the ones for life seem like pretty solid value, always wanted some nice boots too
Err...one of the people I live with to decide Bristol is a shithole and computer science really isn't for her and to not come back after christmas.
bottle of whisky
never had a pair but could do with some boots for work
I've made everyone want them.
so I can listen to awesome records and play Grand Theft Auto V
AND THAT'S DEFINITELY WHAT I'M GETTING YESSSSSSS
might ask for a subscription to PS plus
I don't know though. Bit pretentious, innit.
Couple of books and a bottle of single malt should do the trick tbh.
I need to find the 'what are you buying people for Xmas ' thread. Except I can't be fucked looking for it. One of the presents I'm giving arrived a couple of weeks ago, but I hadn't got around to unpacking it until tonight. Holy mother of Jesus, it is..... every bit as garish and shite as I had being praying it would be. (also just unwrapped neice's Christmas tutu. She will do me proud in it, it's outrageously kitsch.)
A copy of Moby Dick and The Wire on DVD
I have not yet heard the song on the radio. (I think I'm peaking too early this year, need to get a grip.)
