Its My Birthday Next Week

Its my birthday next week and I have no idea what I want. Ill be turning 21, but I don't drink so any age related gifts are out.

I have 3-4 people who want to spend some money on me and I don't know what to ask for

I'm Set for Media (like books and dvds and the sort) anything that I've found I needed I've bought.

I like Fun toys. Gagets, games, and things.

any ideas welcome. I'm hoping there is something I missed. something I just don't know about. and will want instantly.

I don't know about anything new and cool you might have missed, so I'm just going to suggest that you have them take you out for a nice dinner.

anyway. I found this cool site.

Thinkgeek.com

and I told my girlfriend to get me

http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/science/bbe8/
http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/cubegoodies/b6e6/
http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/tools/bcd0/

my girlfriend is actually thanking me that I told her some stuff, she thinks it hard to buy me stuff. its really not. just get me a toy for my birthday. something I would never get for myself.... like I would buy a $35 pen for myself.

and I told a friend to get me (last one I've got left)

http://www.xheli.com/1822c6-grey.html

my step father said he will give me an IOU

and my mom said she will surprise me by dropping my girlfriend and I at an Undisclosed Location in Manhattan some time next week (I'm guessing Comedy Club. but it really could be anything)

and based on my WAG about a comedy club. she said near the bridge, and the only one that poped up on google maps was http://www.dangerfields.com/index.html

and since they have a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Coupon, and she said those days specifically. that's probably it (I will check in and say if my guess is right.. and if I am ill be sure to show her this post)

You lost me at "fun toys, gadgets, games and things," but happy early birthday!

I just bought a full size Laptop less than a few months ago. I had an EEE 7" 4g since it launched and gave it to my girlfriend for school. I found an Ipod touch can replace a netbook pretty easily. atleast for the functions I use it for, and I never use my itouch anyway.

they are cool though. and the new Seashells from asus look really nice.

and shes just about to get here. I gotta go.

thanks for the wishes

Are we there yet? Is it time now? Did you figure out what you wanted? Did you get a surprise? How about IR headphones? OK, how about now? Is it time now?

I have a hard time waiting. It's even harder when I have to do the waiting for someone else.

Just in case...Happy 21st!!

What day is the official 21st Birthday?

(21, huh? Your avatar makes me think that you are way older than that. And all of your sage advice!)

Happy b-day.

The Buckyballs are a trip. They make a 6 x 6 x 6 cube and are great to play with on a video conference where they are just out of camera range on the desk and everyone watching you thinks you are busy writing or reviewing notes of the meeting or preping your next remark. The other one I like is the Ball of Whacks.

The micro tools are fun for a while. They are too heavy to be confortable in your pockets and too lightweight to do heavy work with them. Mine now live in the center console of my car and haven't been touched in years.

If you can't find a Sea Monkey kit, the Triops Deluxe Kit is a good choice. Or maybe a modern day ant farm.

If you are stuck in a cube at the office or just work in a crazy place, the Airzooka air gun is always a good choice.

Have fun and do tell us what new loot you picked up on your birthday.
