Bizarrely grown-up things I want

Weird, unexpected things I've been daydreaming about:

I am on the hunt for a super-awesome, less-than-$50 paper shredder. I am not kidding. Andy bought a weird cheap one that lasted a few months and has lived on the floor in the corner of our office (which is really more of a catch-all nonsense room that stresses me out to look at) ever since. Any time we have sensitive mail stuff, I've been ripping it up by hand, but that's a pain in the ass.

The shredder is part of a longer-term daydream about getting rid of some of the old, weird, mismatched shit in a particular kitchen cabinet and set up a nice, organized mail station. Yo, if you're into organizational porn, here you go. You're welcome.

Also, this is something I've wanted for a long time but haven't started actually mentally designing: I want an embosser. I know. It's such a weird, nerdy thing, but I have something over 400 books and I seriously think it would be pretty sweet to emboss all of them with my name. I'm thinking I might wait on this one until I get my tattoo finished, because it would be SO FUCKING COOL to have my books match my skin, right?

What weird grown-up things are you hoping to spend your hard-earned money on?

  1. I secretly spend gross amounts On books from kindle. I say secretly because it comes out of my bank acct, the one brian doesn't check as often. But i never buy lunches or sodas and he does regularly, so in my head we're even. It's a good thing that every book you buy is an individual transaction and they never send you a "hey moron, this is your kindle total for the month!" email, because that could depress me.
