(hi kenneth)

Okay, somewhere in the middle of the 40 Christmas letters, it’s hitting me that I probably do enough writing that it might be worthwhile to go and find some good quality pens that I can rely on.  Doesn’t need to be anything fancy, but it’d be nice if I can eliminate this dependency on finding “good” free pens, where “good” just basically means it writes well.  Doesn’t need to be anything fancy, I just need something that writes well.  A relatively fine point would be nice, but basically I’m just thinking about a GOOD run-of-the-mill ballpoint.  The problem is I don’t really know what that means in terms of actually going out and shopping for…I mean there are really fancy fountain pens and gel rollers and stuff, but to my knowledge that’s not really what I’m looking for (correct me if I’m wrong).  Then I could buy big boxes of plain old ballpoint pens, but if none of them are any good, then that doesn’t help me at all.  So I’m kind of stuck here at the moment until I find out more.

(Note that 90% of the time these pens are gonna be used on paper stationery.

yes yes, you can gripe all you want about college apps, but don’t you think essays that are written about yourself are a million times more interesting than essays about irrelevant topics that you don’t even care about?

an xmas wishlist.

one month in advance, because it seems rude to do it any later than that.

-anything and everything Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll, Charmy Kitty, or My Melody, or Keroppi, or anything else Sanrio. <3 Sanrio 4ever~

-anything else cute (MashiMaro, Tarepanda, ~~~)

-cell phone charms (you can -never- have enough!!!)

-cute stationery (preferably with matching envelopes, but just stationery notepads are good too!)

-picture frames – I have =tons= of pictures that I could theoretically put in picture frames.  Cutesy picture frames are always better, but plain ol picture frames work just as well!

-starbucks cards – I have none right now =(

-Anime/gaming merchandise (think Kanon, Kirby, Shakugan no Shana, Lucky Star, Cardcaptor Sakura, Final Fantasy, Tenchi Muyo, Naruto, etc.)

-your company – because I’m a lonely college kid and even if you don’t get me anything material and just grace me with your presence that’s totally fine

-money is fine too (if ur lazy =P)

-Bath&Body products are cool too!  But you have to think girly and fruity, and not lavish and feminine.

======

do NOT give me:
-any more 3x3x3 rubik’s cubes, i’m retired as a speedcuber!  2x2x2 might be fine though since I still do custom jobs on those.  1x1x1 would be AWESOME. =P

-any more hairbrushes, unless they’re extremely cute, since I totally have plenty already ;)

======

if you want more specifics for “cute sanrio stuff” to get, I would really like…
-clothing – I don’t own a single piece of sanrio clothing! =(…granted most of it is for little girls (for obvious resaons), but I would love to have a nice HK shirt or sweater to wear!  I have 2 sanrio scarves, but more of those are cool too!

-posters/wall scrolls – same as above, I have noooo really cute ones =(

-mug or glass – so I can drink my hot water out of something cute ;)

-plushies!!!  I don’t have enough =(

-Key covers – I have one now, but I could use a few more cute ones

there’s other stuff, like mousepads and earmuffs and mahjongg sets, but those are so obscure i shouldn’t even bother.

Of course just because I’m posting a wishlist, doesn’t mean I should expect anything.  That would not only be pretentious of me, but would just inevitably lead me to a huge disappointment!

black friday’s coming up and i may look into possibly getting a laptop…?  any recommendations?  The thought just occurred to me not too long ago so I haven’t really thought about details yet.

99% of all laptops are widescreen nowadays so I’m gonna have to deal with that, most likely.  yeech.
