[artwork] Mixology Prints by Sheila Evans more details...

Description: Sheila is a local Spokane artist whose stylized paintings of cocktails I love. I can't afford originals, but I'd love some reproductions. I especially like Aviation and Manhattan from the list of reproductions. I already own Negroni (thanks, Mom and Dad!).

[artwork] NASA Visions of the Future posters more details...

Description: NASA released these kickass "tourism" posters for different exoplanets and I've always wanted a few, printed out and framed to hang on my wall.

I'm a big fan of The Grand Tour, Jupiter, Kepler 16-b, and Trappist 1-e designs. And Earth.

[board game accessory] Cloth drawstring bags more details...

Description: As part of the universal board game kit I'm developing, it would be useful to have a number of generic drawstring bags in different colors. These bags should be wide enough that a person could stick their hand in there. I have a couple similar bags already that are around 8" wide and 9" tall/deep, and that works pretty well.

As my note below indicates, my top priority is a bag in each of the primary colors of the piecepack: black, red, yellow, and blue. Then one each of green, orange, purple, and white, and then maybe a neutral bag or two.


Top priority: Red, yellow, blue, black
Second priority: Orange, green, purple, white
Low priority: Neutral (undyed/natural/brown)
[board games] Crokinole board and pieces more details...

Description: Crokinole is like shuffleboard and pool: a game of precise angles and very slippery surfaces. Ever since watching the Shut Up and Sit Down review of Crokinole, I've wanted my own board.

Good Crokinole boards tend to be handmade, and I'd much prefer a board made by an artisan than a mass-produced one.


It's important to me that the board have a circular (not hexagonal or octogonal) trough surrounding it.
[board games] Games on my BoardGameGeek wishlist more details...

Description: Check out the attached link to see my BoardGameGeek wishlist, which is roughly ordered according to priority. By poking around, you may also be able to see my collection, so you can check if I already own a game.

Please note: as of 2019, I'm trying to carefully limit the new games I acquire. I'm primarily interested in game accessories, game systems (like Looney Pyramids, which I own), or games that are beautiful and handmade (like Crokinole). I won't say no to games on this wishlist, of course--I put them on a wishlist for a reason!--but I'm not dying for new board games here.

[booze] Scotch more details...

Description: scotch scotch scotch

I love smoky, peaty scotches.

[computer] 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM more details...

Description: I know this brand of RAM works with my motherboard. My board has two RAM slots and one is currently taken up by an 8GB stick, so 16GB in a single stick will give me a good boost and make it feasible to upgrade to 32GB (total) in the future if I so choose.

Size: 1x16GB

[fountain pen] Fountain pen ink more details...

Description: Right now, most of my fountain pen ink is in the form of little 2 oz. samples. I'd love bigger bottles of colors I like.

I'm partial to rich, vibrant gem tones. I prefer inks that are waterproof, although that's not a dealbreaker for me.

You can use the Goulet Pens Ink Comparison Tool (linked) to view standardized swabs of a wide variety of inks.

[gadget] Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ and accessories more details...

Description: I want to use a Raspberry Pi to run OctoPrint, which is management software for a 3D printer. To that end, I'd like to get:

- Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ (or B, or Raspberry Pi 4--the important thing is it has onboard WiFi and is NOT a Pi Zero)
- Power adapter and cable for the Raspberry Pi
- MicroUSB cable to connect Raspberry Pi to printer (I really like the Anker brand)
- MicroSD card
- Raspberry Pi Camera Module
- Extension cable for camera module

Occasion: Birthday '20

[journaling] Lemome dot grid journal more details...

Description: I use one of these journals every 6 months.

Lemome makes remarkably good journals. The pages are fountain pen-friendly and well-aligned, and the books have a back pocket, a bookmark, an elastic band to keep the pages shut AND a pen loop.

I strongly prefer dot grid pages. A far second is square grid pages. Please do not buy me blank or ruled pages--those don't work for how I journal.

As far as I'm concerned, I could keep the next several years of my journaling life in Lemome books and be perfectly happy.

[kitchen gadget] Cooking oil sprayers more details...

Description: Rachel and I are trying to decrease the waste we generate in our home. A couple cooking oil sprayers like this would help us cut down on our usage of canned cooking oil.

[kitchenware] Glass salad dressing cruet more details...

Description: This is a very low-priority wish, but man, it'd be nice to have a nice bottle for mixing and storing salad dressings.

[media] Case Logic DVD Album with Liner Notes more details...

Description: A large disc wallet with capacity for liner notes would allow me to get rid of all my bulky DVD cases and consolidate my DVDs, while retaining some semblance of order. As a sucker for design and layout, losing the movies' cover art is unthinkable to me, which is why I prefer this wallet over one that doesn't store liner notes or covers.

Storing the covers is non-negotiable for me; I have no interest in storing my DVDs if I can't keep the cover art. Easily reordered pages (binder-style) is a plus.
