Although I can tell you what I’d like for my birthday flat out: a makeout session with my crush, who looks something like this:

geek-chex

However, hundreds of miles prevent me from fulfilling this, so I’m going to share this list with you instead. Because the Slackmistress was bored sweet enough to tag me and because I hit a lull in the work day like to share.
