A Short Holiday (or any day really) Wishlist

Since I really shouldn't buy anything for myself, I thought I'd write down a few things that I've been coveting lately.  I capped the list at 20, so you people don't think of me as materialistic.  Besides the fact that I'd like to have and enjoy these things, I'd like other folks to have and enjoy them too, because I think they're terrific things, as far as things go.  Here they are, in no particular order:
  1. Monkeylectric Bike Wheel Lights M133S (quantity two?)
  2. R.E.Load's Pro Tool Pouch, tan; or a 12-Pocket Leather Tool Roll
  3. Xtracycle's KickBack kick-stand (FreeRadical version)
  4. Velo-Orange Saddle Model 7, or 8
  5. Efficient Velo Tools' "Right Arm" workstand clamp
  6. Pretty much anything made by Efficient Velo Tools
  7. Hershberger Baker's Basket
  8. Avid BB7 Mechanical Disc Brakes (really just the front one for now)
  9. Velo-Orange Grand Cru Seatpost
  10. Surly Big Dummy Frameset, 16" or 18" size
  11. V-O Threadless Stem Adapter
  12. V-O Retro Bottle Cage
  13. Stainless Steel Flat Top, for my Kleen Kanteen
  14. Safety Vest with 16 integrated LEDs (available at lotsa other places too)
  15. Sturmey Archer 8-speed or Sram i-Motion 9-speed hub (w/ drum brake)
  16. Down-Low Glow, you pick the color!
  17. Soul Cycle "in-the-pocket" Head Unit
  18. Yuba Mundo Cargo Bike
  19. Ergon GP1 Grips
  20. Rainmates Bicycle Rain Chaps, size M if you please
