Birthday

My birthday is coming up soon, October the 8th to be precise. Been brainstorming a wishlist:


I'm not sure whether instead of having lots of little items I should just get one big thing, the big thing being a pocket video camera for $250

I can't believe that they've managed to cram a good quality camcorder into such a small device and it's in my absolute favourite colour - yellow! We've been without a camcorder for years and this one looks excellent plus is really easy to use and is very transportable. I'd finally be able to document my life and upload videos to YouTube plus edit clips like crazy. I think I might actually sacrifice the small items for the camcorder. I shall have to ponder...



This week I've been selecting fabrics to have my dad's dining chairs re-upholstered. He refuses to buy new dining chairs as you can't buy any with armrests anymore so he instead is going to fork out extra cash to get them all fixed up. I guess it'll be more envornmentally friendly though, which is always good. My dad's hopeless with colours so he's letting me pick out the fabric, I'll probably go with the green vine fabric, a nice earthy/neutral look to it so it'll go with everything. We might even get the couch done in matching fabric and have cushions made with the plain green fabric.

From time to time I'll be posting my bento lunch efforts which in the beginning won't be anything fancy but I have to start somewhere.





Instead of using bulky insulated lunch bags I just wrap a piece of cloth(an old bandana in my case) around my lunchbox and icepack. I find it works just as well and fits much easier in my bag.

What do you want for your birthday, your so hard to pick for cause' you can make anything I can so there's no point.

And paying 20$ is cheap and uncreative and boring and stupid.

Ideas please?
