- 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 to really big 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, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.
- 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.
Oy, this is hard...
1. A clean apartment, with a room of my own (aka Stephie Cave).
2. Hugs. And lots of them. :)
3. For my sister-in-law to be doing better (she's been having some major problems with depression and bipolar disorder - she's in intensive therapy now).
4. A new computer (Mac) - hey, nobody said these things had to be realistic, right?
5. A new user icon - one you think reflects me.
6. A GameCube (the one game I got majorly hooked on in college was Bloody Roar, only available on GameCube)
7. Good things and good health for all my friends.
8. Tickets to Transiberian Orchestra (if they come this way again this year)
9. A new winter coat - peacoat style
10. Honestly, anything on my my amazon wishlist
I think that about covers it. I try my best not to ask for much, but every once in awhile, I guess I should think about myself, no?
Sidenote: ever notice that as soon as someone tells you the water's going to be off, you really really need to go to the bathroom?
