What DO I want for Christmas?

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The question has been asked. And I don't know if I have an answer. There are things I WANT (like an ending for this blasted book), but for Christmas.....hmmmm....

I may want a Tivo. I've stoppped taping shows I know I'm going to miss, because searching for a blank tape and programming, then going back to the other room (the only one with a VCR) to watch the show is just too...okay, I'm lazt and I don't like change.

I may want a housekeeper for a day. Just to get me back on track. Of course, I WAS back on track. It only took a week (and revising an ending that is driving me out of my mind) to get off track.

I could ask for the trip to Atlanta, but that's 7 months after Christmas! And I want to open something.

I could ask for Buffy/Angel/Law and Order DVDs, but I have some that I've not watched yet. Still, to HAVE them.

Books on CD, maybe, but I already have Nora's new hardcover, and Jennifer Crusie's only got Bet Me on CD, and I have that one.

What are you asking for?

And I'm still not sure what I'm getting him!

I'm basically asking for things I won't get! An alphasmart, jumpdrive, those new printers for your digital camera! And of course books. But I don't think he knows his way to those departments! :-)

A digital camera (which I'm getting--this is what happens when you buy your own presents LOL). And um I still want that kitchen but I've got to talk to the handyman guy and get an estimate and stuff *sigh*

James Purefoy! And if I can't have him then Pride & Prejudice on DVD, and CD's of Keith Urban, U2, and Madonna. And a new laptop.

I already got my present, a new laptop that was on sale the weekend after Thanksgiving. If we do anything else, it'll be to make an extra payment on the house. We dream of having the sucker paid off so we'd have that much extra money each month.

There are a ton of things I COULD ask for. So far I've only asked for a wireless network adapter for my laptop.

Oh, and I asked for a Tedy Bruschi jersey.

What do I want for Christmas? An Agent... lol

No, seriously, I'm just not really sure. Serenity comes out on Dec 20, and I really want that. And I'd like Mr and Mrs Smith too. And there's my wish list over at Amazon.com...

But not a lot, really. I'm sure, though, my husband will come up with some really interesting gifts... he always does.

Peggy, you should borrow my dh for those things - he's a big gadget guy.

I wish I could get HIM a laptop. I bought myself a digital camera at Halloween, would like the printer, but it's not high on the list. Have Alphie and P&P and Mr & Mrs Smith....haven't bought a CD in over a year, and that was Phantom.

Paying off the house would be a dream come true, but unlikely ;)

Cece, I need a new kitchen floor and my sprinkler system fixed. I may just settle for that. My guys aren't much in the way of being creative.

I don't really want anything this year. Honest. I just haven't put a lot of thought into it ... which should make for an interesting Christmas.

Maybe the new Madonna CD .. and her body would be nice ..

So, Mary - is that trip to Atlanta in your future? Would love to see you tehre!

MaryF said...

Nikki, I keep hearing about this Madonna CD. Is it sad that I haven't heard any of the songs? The dh and ds listen to the rock station, and when I'm in the car, I listen to workshops from RWA.

Jill, I'm definitely working for Atlanta. Trish and I put in for a workshop.
