I mentioned before that it's almost my 40th birthday.

Naturally, many people are starting to ask me what I want for my birthday.

Traditionally, I get toys and games for my birthday...I'm not down with the whole idea of socks for my birthday (or any holiday. Socks suck.)

So I started thinking. What do I want?

The answer? I can't come up with a freaking thing.

Seriously. I have every game I want (and a few I only kinda wanted...), there's no hardware I need (console or otherwise), I don't need music players, books, I have more grill-related paraphernelia than I know what to do with....

I can't even find anything on Netflix I want to rent. Seriously.

I can't recall a single instance in my life when this was the case. There was always some expensive toy I wanted, or was saying "If I save up for x, I'll be able to get it when..." but, really...nothing at all.

I'll need to redouble my efforts to think about fun things, or I'm gonna end up with socks.

There are so many kinds of toys. Pocket knives? You use one more than you think. New briefcase/backpack? Wallet?

Not to mention you own a home ... there have to be a ton of little things that you'd like to have. You don't have to be a fix it man to enjoy having access to some decent tools when the need arises.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, your RSS syndication only publishes a teaser and not the whole post.

If not socks (which I LOVE, btw) then how about the, uh, proverbial tie? :)
