Christmas Wish List Meme

Christmas Wish List Meme

Step One
Make a post (public, friends locked, 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 fandom-related ("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.

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 friends 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. 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. A Sentinel Drabble or ficlet with our boys celebrating Christmas together.

2. A Sentinel icon that will be special just because you made it for me.

3. Any icons made in the firefly, Due South or some new show that appeals to anyone. I'm easy, I'll take any show. I love Chuck, Life and Prison Break.

4. Christmas music. (You can just tell me what CDs are you faves and so forth.) (Grey sent me some of her favorite Christmas music and I think it will be mine too.)

5. Arizona pictures,(Wallpapers would be good) I love it here in the desert.

6. I would love any penguin pictures or cartoon pictures.

7. Sticker books for when I make my homemade cards. Something to add to what I already make. :)

8. Another Sentinel drabble. :) (Margaret wrote one for Sentinel Thursday, and it was just for me.) :)

9. International House French Vanilla Coffee.

10. Ginger snaps to go with the coffee.

What a great idea. Someone did this for me last year and I was so thrilled by the generosity of my friends. I will definitely make one of your wishes come true, Patt

I got the idea from Grey. I think it's great too. We're going to have fun and that's what's important. Right?

Oh, I remember this! I'll see what I can do. I'm always collecting stickers myself... you like ginger snaps? I didn't know that!

Oh yeah, I love the darn things, I could sit and eat a whole bag of them. My Mother makes homemade ones that are to die for, but she said no baking this year. She's getting too old. I guess I'll have to break down and get the recipe.

I used to have a great molasses cookie recipe, and they are very similar to ginger snaps, just depends on how spicy you make them. IMHO. Perhaps I can just buy a bag of the kind Mary likes.

What was the other question I had for you? I sent you email about the Jim and Blair drabble. Did you want it sexy and hot or just for fun?

Just for fun, we need all the fun we can get this time of year. LOL

Thanks, darlin.

Hi Patt,
You probably don't know me, I followed you over here from your post at sassyinkpen 's LJ.

Anyway, what a great idea of having a Christmas wish list, I might do that myself. In the meantime, I share your love for penguins and cartoon pictures. Wish the links I found were better than this, but Happy Christmas (a little early) anyway -

and

Here's to "pear pimples for hairy fishnuts!" ("just cough up the dough, mac.")

Catyah, thank you so much for both links, I'm heading over to read them both now. These journals are so great. WE get to hear from all sorts of people whether we know them or not. I love that. :) Thanks again.

You're welcome! Nice to meet you, too.

After I posted, another friend helped me track down this link to that all time great Bloom County strip -- http://philogynist.blogspot.com/2006/11/pear-pimples-for-hairy-fishnuts.html

Enjoy!
