Ben's Wish List
Last Updated: November 6, 2013

Hi, everybody. Thanks for stopping by to check out my wish list! While I used to keep track of things on a separate page, I am now using my Amazon Wish List to keep track of the things that I would like. However, this page has some general information that should help you.

If you're going to buy something for me:
Please send an e-mail to Jenelle at [email protected], and she'll confirm that no one has purchased it already. Thanks!

In general, what kind of stuff do you like?
My main hobbies are running and playing the guitar. I like Christian music, and I enjoy Christian-themed books by a variety of authors. I spend quite a bit of time on the computer. Lately, my life is more kid-focused, so anything that makes things easier or more fun for Eliana and Jonas is appreciated.

What shows do you watch on TV?
I enjoy science fiction (mostly Star Trek), and I also enjoy old animated shows that I watched when I was a kid. We have Amazon Prime, so we get a lot of movies and TV shows for free, so you probably won't see too many on my list. I don't have as much time for TV as I've had in the past, but if I'm on the treadmill completing a late-night run, I've got a TV set up for easy viewing.

What about clothing?
I feel like I have plenty of pretty much every article of clothing. I suppose a pair or two of khaki pants for work would be nice. The ones I have are getting worn out. I prefer shirts in size medium tall or large. My pants size is 32x34.

Can I get you a gift card from somewhere?
Sure! The clear winner is Amazon -- I'm buying things on that site all the time. My favorite 'brick and mortar' stores are Target, Old Navy, and Kohl's Department Store. I will also occasionally buy things on online photo sites like Shutterfly or Snapfish. I know it's an 'old person' gift, but I'm fine with gift cards to restaurants as well. Try Tenuta's Pizza (7321 60th Ave. in Kenosha), Red Robin, or a quaint little place near my house called Gateway Cafe (3619 30th Ave in Kenosha).

All this stuff is boring. What do you REALLY want?
Well, I'm a pretty boring person. :)
Feel free to buy something that you think I'll like, even if it's not on my list, and include a gift receipt. Otherwise, I suggest getting one of the most recently added items to my wish list. I'll try and add some more in the days ahead.
