Need gifts? I love gifts – specifically gift shopping. My favorite way to put myself to sleep is to think of different people and shop for them if I have an unlimited budget and limitless ability to acquire stuff. I know, I’m weird. But it calms my spinning brain down to try to figure out HOW I might acquire, say, a genuine piece of Packers stock, let alone freak out the recipient by giving them such a thing. By the time I work out all the budgetary and logistical crazyness, I fall asleep. I am well aware that I am weird.
Anyway, every so often on my other site that is of no interest to anyone unless you really want to read about how I watched vintage 1993 episodes of 90210 at 6:30am this weekend (Donna graduated! My GOD were those people blonde! Not in a stereotypical dumb way but in a blinding-to-look-at way) I often post links to gift ideas, mostly to aid myself when I wonder what to get someone when it’s a gift-giving occasion. But since these gifts are Teh Awesome, I’m going to inflict my Gift Guiding Goodness on y’all, only this time no velvet vulvas with feathers.
I’ve written about Ninth Moon before, back in December, but that was before I got the Full Treatment of actually receiving a package from them. Seriously – even the packaging and protective filler is part of the presentation. Heck, forget your friends, your family, all those people you work with – just order stuff for yourself. Like what?
I’m totally ordering the CD case for writing backups for a friend of mine who rarely remembers to back her ass up.
Check out that timer. I’ve been downloading Dashboard widgets up my yin-yang and not a one works the way I want, but that puppy is bad ass.
And, of course, the B.I.C.H.O.K. charm, which I looooooove. It’s awesome. With a side order of shibby.
Disclaimer: I don’t own the company or work for them. I’m just kissing up shamelessly.
While I’m looking around the store and hiding my wallet from myself (I’m scared to tell you how well that works), I’m checking out all the writing books. And I have to ask – what writing book has worked best for you? If you could give someone a book about writing, or self-motivation to write, is there one that you always refer to that changed the way you look at your craft?
