Art, Unsorted


The birthday approaches. And I just found out that the Hyperbole and a half book has been out for a while now. My wishlist is being updated accordingly to reflect this change in the state of my knowing-of-things.

Dear Zonk,

I happened to buy some new stationery recently, and decided to make an illustrated wishlist this year. I sort of got lazy midway through it, though, so I’ll be coupling it with a written list.


It’s actually in colour, but I messed up quite a bit, and I think it looks much better in black and white anyway.

So here’s the list. The most important items are in bold. I’ll cancel things out as and when I get to know that someone’s getting them.

The List (in no particular order)

  • Surprise me. You don’t have to stick to the list.
  • THE HYPERBOLE AND A HALF BOOK. You can find out more about it here and you can buy it on Flipkart, I think.
  • A backpack. It should be smaller than my current backpack, but big enough, a nice dark colour on the outside and a bright colour on the inside (so I can stop losing my wallet in it everyday). Also, it should have straps that won’t slide off shoulders, and also, you should probably take me along to buy this item.
  • Red Converse. Or dark green Converse. Size 4 or 5. I’ not too sure about that.
  • White ankle high canvas shoes. Not converse. So I can paint them for myself.
  • A Calvin & Hobbes t-shirt. You will get this at Teamo in Bandra. Please get a size M, because these t-shirts tend to shrink.
  • Pants that are not jeans.
  • Headphones.
  • The XKCD Book.
  • Any nice book. Including nice poetry. It’s been a while since I read poetry. Or a nice book about music.
  • Stationery.
  • Pajamas. There is no such thing as too many pajamas.
  • Oversize sweaters or sweatshirts.
  • Nice stuff from Chumbak.
  • A Dan Mangan album. Oh Fortune, perhaps.
  • Wish me Happy Birthday here or via email. NOT Facebook.

That’s all, folks.
Love always,
