The great invite code giveaway.

So, it's my birthday. Whee. December birthdays kinda suck -- everyone has plans for either their money or their time. I should move it to springtime in a year and see if anyone notices...!

So, being a charitable sort of fellow, I've decided to give away every invite code I possibly can -- today only -- no exceptions. After midnight today, PST, you will not get a code, and any unused codes will be removed from this post.

Frankly, I doubt that I can possibly give all of my codes away, as I have hundreds of them... but we'll see. Besides, LiveJournal made a promise to LJ's users to end codes by the end of this year.

Here's an initial batch of codes for people to use. First one to use a code gets the code. Please try using them in order and leave me a comment saying you've taken the code. I will try to strike them off the list occasionally as they are used, and will post more if all of these get used up before midnight tonight.

* Final Update*

Well, that was busy. 159 invite codes given away in just over 12 hours. For those still seeking invite codes, sorry... maybe next year. (Don't bother emailing me, 'cause I gave already.) Try one of the LiveJournal invite code communities, such as ljcodebank or invitecodes.

Well, ok. If you insist.

Someone asked me to share my amazon wishlist, as they wanted to get me something but didn't know what I would like. I don't really maintain my wishlist much anymore, though, and it was nearly empty. I now have a few things on it, however, if anyone really insists upon getting me something.

Really though, there are very few things I want that aren't fairly big ticket items these days. Most of the rest is just clutter, and there's never enough space for it. I was asked by a family member what I wanted, and my initial answer was $$. When that didn't cut it, it was a gift certificate at Ikea. That way, maybe we can actually make room for all those things we already don't have room for!

At least I haven't gotten quite as bad as my dad, who was absolutely impossible to shop for and never needed a thing. He once asked -- when pressed -- for a few bails of hay and some sacks of manure. Archery targets and gardening, you see.

Come to mention it, archery would kinda be cool in the backyard, and might be a fun way to scare the neighbors. I could put the target near the fence facing the neighbor who complained about my hot tub, so they could hear the intermittent *THUNK* of the arrows hitting the target. I'd need a new bow, though.

Once again, it all comes down to big ticket items. Of course, the best things in life are free...
