I know...I never post anymore...

BUT WE DID IT! I believe in America again! We can mend bridges with all the countries that Bush made sure to burn. There's lots of work ahead, but I'm excited for the next four years instead of dreading them.

And we don't have a president who puts air quotations around "women's health". I can breathe again.


Christmas Wish List

Well, I've never done this before, but I figured I might as well give it a shot this year. :) This is mostly for H_E, but everyone on my friends list is definitely welcome!

Step One
-> Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, 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 your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

-> Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
-> Surf around your friends list (or friend's friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

-> 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.

-> Once a wish has been granted, it will be crossed off my list.

Other Info
-> 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 be someone else's holiday elf--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.

1. More paid account time. That would be loverly, loverly, loverly.
2. More time with my 100 icons. Again, I'd be quite happy.
3. Chris Isaak mp3's. I'm really looking for "San Francisco Days", but would love any of his other stuff too.
4. A The Last 5 Years layout and/or icons/graphics.
5. Homemade Christmas cards
6. Bright Eyes Christmas songs. Supposedly there's a CD out there...all I've been able to find is "Blue Christmas".
7. Amazon.com gift card
8. Recipes for people like me who can't cook!
9. American junk food that I can't get here (peanut butter m&m's, reese's peanut butter cups, Kraft's mac and cheese in the box, butterfingers)
10. Donate to the Red Cross.

If anyone really does actually want to do any of these things, e-mail me at Broadway_Baby_2003@yahoo.com and make it clear in the subject that this is for my LJ wish list, so I don't look past it (I get so much spam in that account, I often delete important things. Whoops!). If anyone has a list, please link me to it so I'll see it and may be able to do something for you!

Merry Christmas!
