All I Want For Christmas (Or At Least 90% Of It)

Saturday morning I got an email from my sister [and fellow blogger], Kirsten, asking me what I wanted for Christmas. To assist my sister (and anyone else who might be Christmas shopping for moi) I decided to do a list of...

The Top 10 Things I Want This Year for Christmas [in no particular order]:

1. T-shirts with slogans " Writer's do it with action verbs" and "You are so NOT going in my book" and "You don't want to know where I get my ideas".

2.
A Sarcastic Ball from Office Playground. Sample messages include: "Dumb Question Ask Another", "In Your Dreams", "Not A Chance", "That's Ridiculous", "Yeah and I'm the Pope" and my personal fav "When Monkeys Fly Out Of My Butt". Ok, I made that last one up. It's not included but feel free to use it at your discretion.

3. To enjoy a old ol' fashioned turkey dinner the way it was meant to be tasted...without being pureed. Goodbye oral appliance! And while I [temporarily] have it out how about...

4.
A passionate-as-hell kiss under the mistletoe. We're talking high-caliber front cover of the Harlequin romance novel type of kiss.

5.
Swiss Army Knife multi-tool key-ring attachment, for the Single Handy Girl in all of us just waiting to get out.

6. Gift certificate for LaSenza.
I repeat, s-l-o-w-l-y, LaSenza.

7. Personal chef/ robot for those days I just don't feel like cooking. Ok, that would be just about everyday.

8.
Toyota MR2 in cream (hey, a girl can dream!)

9.
A one-year subscription to Glamour magazine. To stay in the know on "important" matters like the lastest blow-out techniques and aucurrent lipstick colors.

10.
Big bag of Tangy Tarts. Mmmmmmm full of tangy tarty goodness.

You should get the swiss army knife with the usb memory key dealie in it!

(Sometimes my inner geek comes out to play.)

(Sometimes people tell me that it is not really very "inner.")

Sean: My dad gave me my first Swiss Army Knife. I've hinted to him that I'd like another...so maybe this Christmas. After all, I've been a good girl this year.

Peter: Good tip. Embrace your inner/outter geek - geeks are so "in" right now. If it's any consolation, I have a t-shirt that reads "I [heart] nerds". Then again, I also seen a 10 year old wearing the same shirt.

Ok, none of the gifts I got you made it in your top ten list... Well at least your trip to Moncton brought about enjoying number #10.

There's an unclaimed Swiss Army knife sitting on the butcher's block in our kitchen. Noone knows how it got there, or has claimed ownership. Weird.

Erika said...

Sean: I don't think it would make it past border security...

Treespotter: No, as in hair. It's called Glamour magazine for a reason.

Kiki: Yummy. I'm still jonesing for some.

Hannah: That is weird! Who could misplace a Swiss Army Knife and not notice.

Nice list.

Hmm.. swiss army knives...

I think I can recall atleast two Xmases where my dad bought both me and my brother one. He also has a passion for getting us flashlights for some reason. Its very odd.
