    What do I want for my birthday?

    So, my mom asked me what I want for my birthday. It's the worst question these days. I have most of what I want except for things I wouldn't want as a gift, you know? But she wants to get me a thing, not just cash, as per usual.

    Things I don't need:
    Wallet
    Another watch
    Another messenger bag
    Shoes
    Clothes
    Lighter
    Bottle opener
    Flask
    Pen (this is actually my pen...http://shop.coolmaterial.com/product...d-aluminum-pen)

    Any ideas? My first thought is a Steve McQueen themed gift array. LeMans, Magnificent Seven, Thomas Crown, et al all on Blu Ray, a Steve McQueen coffee table book, you know, stuff like that.

    How about ties, cuff links, or a nice suit or blazer?

    Or maybe a book or a leather portfolio?

    The Complete Calvin & Hobbes book set. Sixty bux on Amazon.

    The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker, thirty bones on Amazon.

    My resmithed, hard chromed, low mileage Nighthawk 1911, price negotiable.

    Got sunglasses? Summer's coming, you're a Steve McQueen fan. Persol 649 or 714.



    Sorry, I'm not trying to bleed Mrs. Raza dry, here. These frames go for around three hundred bucks. Or a nice pair of RayBan Wayfarers. They would be around half that figure.
    Happy Birthday!

    In this case I am referring to the strap.

    That's a great pen btw. Any idea if it takes roller gel inserts? Or fine felt tips?
