Santa's List

For all my talk about list-love, there's one list in my life that's woefully empty: my Christmas list. It's basically an empty Post-It flapping around staring covetously at my shopping list.

There's nothing I want for Christmas--at least nothing money can buy. Somehow this makes me feel like a bad daughter.

But if we're talking about things money can't buy, the list looks like this:

- Super powers.

- To catch my cat in a truly LOLcat moment.

- To bake a cake worthy of Cake Wrecks.

- For that one traffic light that always turns red as I approach to stay green.

- For the people I love to be safe and happy.

- For clowns to become extinct. Ditto mimes.

- For my pillow to constantly be cool side up.

- For someone to start publishing Dorothy Koomson's books here in the US.

- For GRRM to deliver a completed manuscript to his publisher.

- I'm not saying spiders have to become extinct, but I'd be okay with never seeing (or feeling) another one again.

What's on your Christmas (or holiday) list that money can't buy?


  1. My own list: I want my youngest son to sleep through the night. I want my oldest son to have less issues. I want showers every single day. I want more time with my husband...that's just going to have to wait.

    For you:

    Not fancy, but go back to the beginning and work your way through. With creativity some of the ideas work well. Lots of basic cool stuff.

    Have you tried satin pillowcases? Put those on your list! My grandmother swore by them.

    GRRM is never going to turn in that stinking MS. I have given up on him.

  2. Oooh, thanks for the link, Amy. And satin pillowcases, wow, I haven't had any in years; I'd forgotten how great they are. When I was in college I made a couple.

    I hope you get all the things on your list. Funny, the important things are rarely about money.
