The Wishlist Meme  
The Wishlist Meme/Rules:
Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 12 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love an 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 stories 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.
*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. 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 pure bred 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.

Here's Mine:

1. A new carafe lid for my coffee pot. Mine melted in the dishwasher. :(

2. A chafing dish. (I know. I'm SUCH a dork.)

3. A scarf. I love long scarves. All kinds.

4. I collect antique teacups and handkerchiefs, and blue and white china.

5. Music. Music is love. All kinds. Soundtracks, classic rock, adult contemporary, classical, or a mix of your favorites.

6. Recipes! Especially family recipes - special ones that you love. Also, cookbooks! Giada DeLaurentis, Ina Garten, Alton Brown, etc.

7. Tell me a joke. Send me a link! Make me laugh! I'm an easy room, ask anyone.

8. Handmade items. I love the things that people take the time to make for me, and use them all the time.

9. Shoes. Size 7 1/2. Shoes ALWAYS fit. :) Thank God.

10. Art: real art, fan art, watercolor, sketches, oil on canvas, I'm up for it all.

11. Vintage patterns. 40's, 50's, or 60's, especially.

12. Fan fiction. Original fiction. Anyone that writes knows what I love. :D Fluffy, funny, smart aleck-y good stuff with happy endings.

You can contact me at persephone3333@gmail.com. :)

Now it's your turn! Post your wishes. You never know, someone might have JUST what you want!

I suppose saying "I wish for David Bowie for Christmas" isn't really in the spirit of this exercise, eh?

I also feel like a nerd for not knowing what a chafing dish is.

I know what one is too. My husband's a foodi and he actually owns two of them. :p

HA! That's what i just said.. re: the chafing dish XD

Come on, Elle - you can say it about David Bowie too - I know how to share. ;)

*giggles* If I could have any man for Xmas though, I'd go for Robert Downey Jr. or Ian Smolderhotter.

One of the girls at my work has an unhealthy LOVE for Ian. She is very smitten. I told her all about your Michael and she about drooled to death. *g*
Elle Blessingway: TVD: Damon Hotelle_blessing on November 22nd, 2010 06:24 am (UTC)
*g* ... if it wasn't weird, I'd probably drool to death over Michael too. I have Damon Salvatore to oogle now though. A bit healthier than eying the pretty blue-eyed man who lives in your head. Ahem.

Ahhh you're a Vampire Diaries girl now. Funny! I should have known with all the pretty there. (Amber at work is as well *g*) I might manage to get her to watch Lost too... well, the first season anyway. :(

L.J. Smith's TVD books were actually what got me into fantasy back when I was... oh, 13? My online name is derived from one of the obscure families in another of her book series :D

I had to check out Vampire Diaries. I was prepared to hate it, but it turned out to be surprisingly good. (I never did watch Lost. Am currently catching up on Veronica Mars. Then Castle's next. Then Sons of Anarchy.)

Ooh all three are great shows. Happy watching!!

i don't think a chaffing dish is a dorky request! i asked for (and got) a dutch oven for my b-day!
Elle Blessingway: BtVS: Huh?elle_blessing on November 22nd, 2010 06:17 am (UTC)
I looked at the link and I still can't figure out what a chafing dish is *headtilt*

... *is not a goddess of the kitchen*
Carrie Leigh: kitchen goddesscarrie_leigh on November 22nd, 2010 01:14 pm (UTC)
It's a serving tray that keeps things warm. You've seen them at catered dinners and weddings, probably.

I have a dinner at my house every Wednesday night for my home group, and a chafing dish would come in handy. :)
Elle Blessingwayelle_blessing on November 22nd, 2010 02:24 pm (UTC)
I have! It all makes sense now :D
