2017 Wishlist in Progress

Keeping track of stuff I like or want is easier if I make a place for it through the year, rather than trying to do it at the last minute. This worked great in the past, so I'm continuing the practice.  See my wishlists from 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Here Lies Butch daylily
Purple, pink, and pale green flowers with frilly petals.  If the shipping is high and it's a flat price, I'm also interested in the Groundcover daylilies.

The Monsters' Rhapsody: Disability, Culture, & Identity by Ann Magill
A poetry collection about characters with disabilities.

Defying Doomsday edited by Tsana Dolichva & Holly Kench
An anthology about disabled survivors after an apocalypse.

Science Rockstars T-shirts

Anning on brown
Brahe on royal blue
Lamarr on burgundy
Fibonacci on royal blue

Litographs Literary T-shirts
All the words from a book are squeezed into tiny print and used to make art.  My size is Large.  For bicolors, the first color listed is the name on the page for that shirt, but some of these have two or three colors.  I am currently in want of:
On the Origin of Species (bicolor dark green, orange, and white)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (bicolor blue, tan, and white)
The Jungle Book (monochrome green/white)
The Island of Dr. Moreau (multicolor dark pink, blue, and white)

Dormammu, I've Come to Bargain sweatshirt (size Large) on royal blue

Tribal Money
So it turns out that several tribes, using their status as sovereign nations, are issuing money.  Most of these are just collector editions of things based on United States of America currency, but hey, it's representation. (I've been hearing about this for a while, and what we really need is intratribal or intertribal alternative currency so people don't have to stay fucking broke because the white people don't want them to have green frog skins. I also advocated for using a different currency from the ground up, like wampum instead of dollars. But maybe someday. I'm happy just to see it get this far; it looks like they did a gorgeous job making the coins.)  Los Coyotes, however, say you can spend theirs on the reservation.  If it wasn't clear out in California, I'd be seriously tempted to go there just for the purpose of finding something -- anything -- to buy on tribal land with their own coins.  Jeez, I don't even know half these people, it's like going to a family gathering and not knowing all your relations.  Anyway, these are my picks in approximate order of interest from most to least.
7 coin set of Los Coyotes coins -- drat it, I couldn't find a catalog listing, only eBay, will need extra signage marking it as spendable in territory
2013 Mesa Grande Sovereign Nation Coin Set (Iroquois, Mohawk, Cherokee, Crow, Shawnee, Sioux)
2016 Jamul Indian Coin Set Iroquois Tribes (Cornhusk Society Mask, fishing canoe, lacrosse, 3 sisters, stone pipe, Iroquois chief)

2016 Jamul Tribe Apache Indian Coin Set (basket, coyote, prairie dogs, buffalo, teepee, Geronimo)
2017 Jamul Indian Coin Set Blackfoot Tribe (chokecherries, teepee, wolf, eagle head, bear, Chief Bear Bull)
2017 Jamul Indian Coin Set Crow Tribe (moccasins, horses, warrior, medicine man, dog dances, scouts on horseback)
2015 Jamul Indian Coin Set (rattles, scorpion, horned lizard, hummingbird, tribal archer, shamans at fire)
2012 Santa Ysabel Indian Nation Coin Set (medicine man, basketry, fire, ancestors, crafts, sage)

I posted about the discovery of the amplituhedron in quantum physics.  So now I want an image of it on a pendant.  Medallion is fine, but it should be easy to carve too.  Silver would be nice, but I'm not too picky about the material, other than not fluorite and preferably not pink.  Ideally I'd like to make it the guru bead in a mala, literally illustrating quantum physics lying between the ends of science and magic.

Planetarium is a science/fiction board game.
We have greatly enjoyed playing this game.  Read my preliminary thoughts here.
