Wish List Thingie

I haven't done this for a couple years, but it was always fun.
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 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.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), 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 friendslist (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. 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 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. Isa Chandra Moskowitz cookbooks - I have none, but oh how I would love to have them all.
2. iTunes or Amazon gift cards.
3. Altar of Praise CDs.
4. Boxes of cold cereal. Rice chex, granolas, stuff with nuts and dried fruit preferred, but I also love things with cinnamon. I just... adore cold cereal lately.
5. Cast-iron trivets (here's an example) for my wood cookstove.
6. I would love to have a small, elegant sailing ship type ship for my new house. Maybe even in a bottle. I'm not actually even too sure exactly what I want, but maybe someone else choosing for me would remove the agony... lol. I don't want it to look overtly piratey.
7. Vintage maps.
8. Chocolate. Omnomnom.

...I can't think of ten things.
