Ok, so “Nerd Drive 2006” will be kicking off fairly soon. For those of you that don’t know what “Nerd Drive 2006” is it is my birthday (January 21st, 1980). So, the reason I am posting this and holding the drive is because there is a problem that most people find with getting me gifts. First off, I am incredibly hard to shop for because I like a lot of stuff, but I have most everything I need, so either the things I want are really expensive, or they are specialized and thus tough to find in a B&M (Brick and Mortar) store.
So, to help this perdicament I have decided to hold the “Nerd Drive” just like I did a couple years ago because it was quite successful and made it easy on people. The thing is that there are a couple of ways I could think about going about this whole thing.
- I could make a wishlist online of things I want and people can pick off that, but not find what they want or just think it mostly junk like DVD’s and Books.
I have compiled a fairly decent Amazon “Nerd Drive 2006” Gift List here. Some of the stuff might look weird to you, but its what I need and like.
- I could ask everyone to buy me gift certificates at some place like Best Buy and pool all those together to get what I really need like a iPod (Yes, I need one, cause I have known about them even before they were and are out, I had one of the first MP3 players, I have the largest music collection, it would be awesome for working out, and I am the only person on earth who doesn’t have one) or a nice Dell Flat Panel Monitor for my computer (my current one randomly turns hues of pink and purple at random). The problem with this is that I completely destroy a persons fulfillment in getting a special gift from themselves to me.
Please leave your comments on what you think I should do in the comments section (notice the link down there) below.
