11:20 am - Christmas Wishes meme
It's that time of year again! I'm not flush this season, but hey, we are all in fandom, so I shall be trawling all your lists to see if there is anything I can fulfill anyway. :)


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 custom-made 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. My own coffee grinder (preferably a burr grinder, as I have heard less-than-complimentary things about the flat-blade grinders).

2. Sayers on Holmes, by Dorothy Sayers

3. Any or all of these books by Lois McMaster Bujold (paperback is perfect): Brothers in Arms, Mirror Dance, Memory, A Civil Campaign, Komarr.

4. Life on Mars soundtrack

5. The non-existent Life on Mars score--the soundtrack is all the 70's songs, which is brilliant, but the score, all written by composer Ed Butt (I believe), is what I really want, and it's not out anywhere that I can find.

6. Fic: someone, anyone, write me Larry/Megan stories. They can be anything from romantic fluff or babyfic to deathfic, and whatever rating you're comfortable with (I'm not real keen on NC-17, but anything below that), as long as it's all about their relationship.

7. A fannish calendar for 2010. There is a Winchester brothers (and a Dean) one at warnerbros.com; I know there's a Gene Hunt (Life on Mars) one available in the UK. What I really want is a Life on Mars calendar with the whole cast featured, but I don't know if that exists. I'd take a Doctor Who calendar, too.

8. To know what God is doing in my life right now, so that it's easier to bear what I'm going through.

9. A small bookshelf and a cabinet to hold office supplies; I need to get more organized and I just don't have the space!

10. Small (say, two by two inches) photographs of far-away good friends for a cool photo frame I just got for my wall. There is space for 9 images, and I've already got 2 or 3 filled. (Kat, Marie, Felicia, Mistral, Kim, I am particularly looking at you. *g*)

No, you really don't want to look at my fat face.

I'm not very photogenic myself, so I'll understand if that just doesn't work for you....but the request stands. :)

I've used a likely 20-year old flat-blade grinder for a long time, and have never had trouble or a bad grind. :-)

Oh! I can send you a picture. I'll have to figure out where to print a pic. Are there any of mine that you like particularly?

I don't know, there are so many! Pick one that's mostly you (i.e. not you and the TARDIS or anything) and send it--surprise me!

Right, I have a copy of LMcMB's Memory in paperback if you want it. And if you really are masochist enough, you can have a picture of my face as well. Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

Eee, thank you so much! I will message you the address to mail the book to. (I have a feeling the picture frame is filling up fast, but thank you for that offer as well.)

Merry Christmas!

Dude. Coffee grinder is a done deal.

Aside: Geo uses our flat blade grinder on a regular basis, and he loves it.

*blink blink* *points to self* Me?

I've only got one picture of you, silly. The one we took at King's Island. :)

Coffee grinder! (I dunno, it may just be the serious coffee snobs I know who swear by the burr grinders. I'd take anything that isn't going to wear out right away.)
