I read about this holiday wishlist meme on various blogs and thought it was a really nice idea. I’ve got a few wishes out there that I might be able to grant – it should be fun! I love giving and helping.
– Make a post to your blog. The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
– If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just an email address at which you can be contacted by potential wish-grantors, real or imaginary.
– Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your post, so that the holiday joy will spread.
– Surf around your friends list/blogroll/RSS feeds (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list.
– If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use–or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free–do it.
You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a chance to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not–it’s your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just…wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.
So what’s on YOUR list to Santa?
Without further ado, my wishlist. Some items you’ll laugh at, and some are not going to be fulfilled for now, but these are nonetheless the things I desire right now.
Vibe review bullet – Cheap? Yup. So why haven’t I bought myself one to replace the original one I reviewed? Because the base shipping cost is nearly as much as the bullet itself and I won’t pay that since it’s the only thing I’d order.
Njoy Eleven – Lofty goal, I know. But fuck I want this!!!
New desk chair – My current one at home is really crappy and bad for my back. I have a backache most of the weekend now because there’s really no where else I can go if I need to be at the computer. Sure I have a laptop now but I don’t exactly have anyplace to sit thats both easy on my back and easy to type long periods of time.
Advertising sponsors at e[lust] – Pretty self-explanatory, I have rates for text links and for banner ads.
Buy stuff from my affiliate links at Eden Fantasys or ! You get personal sex toy buying advice from me, you get awesome sex toys AND I get compensation in the form of a small percentage of your total purchase. Win win for all!
DSLR – Another lofty goal. I’m just so in need of a really great camera. There’s so much I want to do that a standard P&S camera, no matter how good, just can’t do.
Trips to NYC – places to stay, tour guide, etc. While the train tickets aren’t exactly cheap, it’s the hotel stay that is a big hit to the wallet. And of course food money, but hey. I can cook!
Car stereo -I’d really like one that will allow me to plug in memory cards, USB memory sticks, and my Ipod. Forget CD’s – I burn them, they float around the car, they get scratched, etc.
New speakers – I kinda like to listen to my music loud, and the car was 10 years old when I got it. So….I blew out the front speakers. I don’t require anything fancy at all, just working ones will do great.
2 new hard drives for back-up – I realized that I can’t back up my secondary hard drive well enough. Sure, Windows can and will tell me that my HDD is on its dying breath and I can back up but I’d feel a fuck of a lot better if I had a mini-RAID going.
Sephora.com Gift Cards – I could drop hundreds at Sephora, I’m such a make-up slut.
A new cat tree for my cats. They really like the sisal rope posts and the carpet covering on the current one – so much so that it’s falling apart now! The one we have right now was a 3-story, but it wobbled a bit, being carpet-on-carpet and not a wide heavy base…….resulting in kitty-splat if they over-eagerly tried to launch themselves up on the top level. Timmmbeerrrrrr! oops.
New Idea – I need someone local-ish to teach me a few new eye makeup tricks. I’ve got one style down, but there’s more I want to be able to do. Not the super-complicated sparkly tricks, but something more.
New Idea – I’ve got some staple makeup items I’m always going to be in need of. Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow in Cultured pearl. BE foundation in Fairly Light. Mascara in Black, any kind I guess – I don’t notice much difference in them all.Too-Faced Shadow Insurance. Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster. Any decent exfoliating moisturizer. Also used to love the micro-dermabrasion kit from Olay I think it was. A serum and this orange warming scrubby stuff, did awesome things for my skin.
Oh and my EdenFantasys wishlist
