Somehow, the earlier I do this, the less guilty I feel about it. Probably because I know no one cares this early anyways. Do people even start thinking about Christmas before Thanksgiving? I feel like I have no idea, because my timeline is all screwed up because I have to start Christmas letters 3 months in advance. Plus, I just get excited about it every year anyways, especially when the weather starts getting colder (which it is not right now!).
The more important part of this list might actually be the Not wishlist, since I already have too many of certain things, and I know that even though it’s very easy to just go “oh, just buy anything Sanrio for Timm[ie]”, it’s actually not quite that easy because I already -have- so much stuff. So those are some important guidelines. But I know I’ve rarely had this list actually matter anyways–I didn’t actually get anything from the one last year, except maybe Kirby Mass Attack which to be honest I’m not even sure whether I own or not (sigh…too many games…well, I guess it’s more like, I have other things to do now. Wait, when did this happen, nuuuuu….).
Also, you should note that I actually get more excited about Little Twin Stars and Cinnamoroll merchandise than Hello Kitty stuff, in general ;P With Hello Kitty it’s harder to get the right “aesthetic”, too, since there’s all this really flashy and glitzy or hot pink or whatever stuff, which isn’t quite the case with some of the other characters…

Of course, just plain money is not a problem, since I have a lot of miscellaneous stuff that I would spend it on, like plane tickets, paying off loans, etc.
And of course, more importantly, none of the materialistic stuff will make as much difference as simply you spending time with me, or sending me some warm sentiments, like a letter! Even a phone call is okay too.
I’m not sure whether I should get a Sanrio datemate this year. I’ve got one every year since 2009 I think, but I never use them anymore, so it’s kind of sad.
Edit: added drawing books, hair straightener
Edit: know I shouldn’t, but I’m adding To The Moon for now as the one game I’m interested in. Still don’t know whether I’ll have time for it, considering I haven’t even gone through Analogue: A Hate Story and a whole bunch of other narrative/VN/etc games, but isn’t emotional experience through the medium of gaming something that I really should immerse myself in?
Edit: Adding Brave and Wreck-It Ralph merchandise because omgggg Brave + Wreck-It Ralph
Edit: Hair straightener has been claimed
Edit: Earbuds have been claimed
Edit: Add FEZ, SSX
