My Birthday List

I’ve got a birthday coming up.  After 21, they don’t really matter, but I always get the question from my loved ones: “What do you want for your birthday?”.  To be honest, I have too much stuff.  I’ve moved to the opinion that space in my place is like real estate – with a high value per square foot.  What takes up space better be worth it…no squatters.

I don’t really like asking for stuff…but I do have my eye on a few things:

Clockwise from top left:

1. Antique Box: I’ve got a bunch of stuff – watches, collar stays, cufflinks, etc., and I need a place to keep them.  Something like this has to be found over at an antique market.  The search is the best part.
2. Laguiole 7mm Knife: I like to think of this as the ‘business man’s special’.  I have been carrying a knife on my keychain, but it’s too tough to use.  I want this one to act on it’s own.
3.  Col. Littleton No. 18 Portfolio: Even though we work in a highly technical world, not everything can be carried on a Macbook.  Sometimes I have to go old school and carry documents and make/take notes.  I want this one to be my caddie.
4. Lucchese Powell Boots: Something new from cool are these?  I like the double monk touch, but I really like the dressy look with rubber soles.  Wear these all day long…
5. 2015 Ford Bronco: Because it’s 100% badass.

    Ha, mine’s coming up as well. Ending up getting a new UofL golf bag.

    But that portfolio…….

    I received that Col. Littleton Portfolio as a graduation gift a few years ago. I used it religiously at my old job, but in my new gig we are almost totally paperless. I do bring it with me sometimes and use it to take notes/brainstorm. It’s a great piece and looks even better with time. I also feel like it’s helped me get a couple jobs in its short life with me.

    I was so excited when I saw the new Bronco. I will be in the market for a new ride sometime early next year so I thought that it may be a good option to wait for this release. Naturally I began reading more about the Bronco only to find out that the link was actually an April Fools joke. I’m still wiping the tears out of my eyes.

    I’ve got the 7mm Laguiole. Love it.

    Actually I’ve got the legal size Col Littleton portfolio too, but like Warren I don’t use it much.
