I don’t know how many of the people who have asked read this, but I figure it’s worth a shot. Most of the things I want are books, even though I don’t have as much time for reading as I used to, so my main wish list is at Amazon. Here’s a handy little button that will take you there.

My Amazon.com Wish List

Amazon has become a lot better for things other than books, but it’s still not able to handle stuff I might find on random obscure (or even not so obscure) websites that don’t happen to be Amazon partners. For those, I use ListIdeas instead.

One other category of gifts which is always welcome is humorous T-shirts. I definitely have a penchant for scientific or technical humor on my shirts, as exemplified by the “Evolution Kills” shirt that shows dinosaurs evolving into roast chicken or the “Periodic Bagel” shirt that shows toppings instead of elements, but other themes are fine too. If it’s too rude then I won’t be able to wear it to work (unless it’s under something) but other than that if it’s funny then get me a large. ;) Other random toys/gadgets/puzzles such as those sold at ThinkGeek are always welcome too.
