I know at certain times in the year some of you like to bring gifts. I 
do appreciate your kind thoughts. It isn't necessary, but it's nice to feel 
appreciated. I just want you to know that I am allergic to most flowers and 
scented things, like soaps or shower gels. Please, no candy. I am on a 
specific diet. 

If you do want to buy something, these are a few of my favorite things:

My favorite colors are lilac, light dusty pink, orange-yellow, and ocean 
blue (It is a green-blue)
I love impressionistic art.
I am an artist and writer.
I collect teddy bears.
I love dragons and the Renaissance.
I am English and love English things.
I love to read.
I love the L.A. Kings hockey team.
You can also give to the L.A. Zoo in my name. I support endangered animals.
When all else fails, gift cards work great.
