I've already been asked what I'm wanting for Christmas.

My mom has gotten most of the stuff I've asked her to get me.

However, if you're curious, I've got a list available here of things I like.

Blame Jib. That's all I'm going to say.

Yes, I know I've ignored LJ-Land for a little. Forgive me. (It doesn't help when one is with the family for the holidays.)

Without further ado.

First, a challenge from [livejournal.com profile] summersdream.

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your favorite song.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to these questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

And the answers. )

Now, time for the post-Christmas update.

I love my family. I really do. However, I had a relatively crappy holiday. The boys and I left on the 23rd, and I got home that day. My grandmother's moved in with my parents, and unfortunately, she's a hoarder. So, I got to listen to complaints from both my parents and my grandmother about each other. I'm sorry, but the holidays SHOULD NOT be reserved for griping. I went to Christmas Eve services with Mom, my little bro, and my grandma, and even though I didn't go Episcopal (I have to switch off with my family, and usually, only Mom'll go with me), it was still a nice service.

I also took my sewing machine home with me, and got the tension problem diagnosed and fixed. Sadly, I wasn't able to start the bliaut I was hoping to work on, but at least the biggest problem is out of the way.

Christmas morning was good. I got lots of bath and body stuff, and a few bits of music, including U2's Mexico City performance from the Popmart tour. EEE. I have the best little brother ever.

I spent the next few days being bored out of my skull, though I also coddled Chance (my puppy) extensively. He's not doing too well (but then again, he's fifteen), so I just let him be comfortable around me. He also wasn't eating well, so I had to help him out with that. Getting an old dog to eat is harder than you think.

Throw in a rat found in my parents' pantry, which is in the basement, which is where I sleep when I go home to the madness...and that should be indicative of the chaos of being home with my family, at least this holiday. Seriously, not fun.

Meanwhile, I came home with photos of a petit point that Mom's trying to sell on Etsy through my store. It's a beautiful piece. I just hope it goes soon.

Happy 2008, y'all!

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 friendsfriends, 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.

Everybody! All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth... )
