Christmas Wish List

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.

- 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.

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.

Can do 3 and 4 easily enough! Need to get that 4 sorted asap.

I thought about doing this meme thing, but I can't keep up with it all!
22nd-Nov-2004 08:09 pm (UTC)
Looks like 4 will have to wait until after Christmas. gamilla is still hors de combat after her fall and I can't see me shoehorning anything else into my diary before Christmas.

Want anything special from Paris? Go on, put up your wish list. I can do more choccies or nougat.
22nd-Nov-2004 10:58 pm (UTC)
When we do 4 is not important, but I think we should at last sort it out.

I'm thinking about Paris. I'm trying to be good with the food. The cidre was nice though, maybe that.

Gamilla can't make it until after Christmas.
What about after the fic is finished, after the 6th? Suggest a date to Cass.
23rd-Nov-2004 12:07 am (UTC)
Not a problem with that. We have until 23rd January. I just wanted to get it all booked soonish.
22nd-Nov-2004 11:43 pm (UTC)
What do you mean by watery?
23rd-Nov-2004 12:03 am (UTC)
This one's watery.
23rd-Nov-2004 12:05 am (UTC)
Just pretty watery water. OK.
23rd-Nov-2004 12:06 am (UTC)
Water in all its moods. Not just pretty. Stormy seas, misty reedy rivers. All that sort of thing. Look, found pretty snow globe.
23rd-Nov-2004 12:24 am (UTC)
I knocked this jokey one up just now.

That snow is taunting me.
23rd-Nov-2004 08:43 am (UTC)
I'm sure I can do number 3!
24th-Nov-2004 12:53 pm (UTC)
I made some watery icons that you're welcome to if you like them. They're all just bases at the moment, so if you wanted writing on them just let me know. :)

Those are so lovely. Thank you. I especially like the spider's web and the drop on the leaf. They remind me of early mornings on the boat when the sun catches the dew on the freshly spun webs that cover the back deck and the stern gear.

I would like writing on them, but can't think of anything suitable right at this moment. I'm still all overcome.

*big hugs*
24th-Nov-2004 03:42 pm (UTC)
Oh yay, you like them! :D A very Merry (early) Christmas. Hee.

And just let me know anytime you can think of the text that you'd like.

*hugs you back*
24th-Nov-2004 06:55 pm (UTC)
I could send you White Flag via yousendit.com, except it'd be in RealPlayer format... I can't work out how to chang it back! What do you think?
24th-Nov-2004 07:05 pm (UTC)
Oooh, thank you!

I'm sure there's a facility in Itunes for converting it to mp3 for my Ipod. I'd love it. Send it to hesadevil2003@yahoo.co.uk

Many thanks. I've been meaning to get it since David Boreanaz spoke about making the video at the recent Halloween Convention. I always thought the song was more fitting for Spike than Angel, though.
24th-Nov-2004 07:06 pm (UTC)
Did you want the whole album or just the one track?
24th-Nov-2004 07:10 pm (UTC)
Just the one track.

I see you are just down the road from me. The daughter attended Hitchin Girls' School and then went on to Imperial College. I wish you all the best for your ambition of getting into Haberdashers'.
24th-Nov-2004 07:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks! My mum went to Imperial College too. Managed to get a First in Chemistry. Then when I was in year 6 and we were looking around schools she couldn't remember what colour litmus paper goes in which thing.
Come to think of it, I can't either.
24th-Nov-2004 07:06 pm (UTC) - Ashamed of myself
My dear Hesadevil,

Very sorry to hear the chest infection lasted so long and I am indeed ashamed that I did not phone you when MWNN was in Dublin, but, as you know I had "outlaw" here.

Hope you are really in good form again - after eating that scrumptious dinner you made, I take it you are your old self again.

My computer was "out-of-use" for a week, just because we decided to go from "slow" internet to "quick" internet, we had lots and lots of problems, including German Telecom forgot to press some switch that would connect us. But a very nice fellow from Telecom with lots and lots of patience took pity on us and spent nearly an hour with us until we got going again.

The new car looks beautiful, congratulation, and I wish you good luck and many many hours of pleasant driving.

Must go "he" is calling me to look at something on TV

Lots of love and kisses

You do realise you've broken the rules of this entry you naughty woman.

You're supposed to grant one of my wishes or

recommend a book, film and music.

and then ask me 3 questions.

And then post the same rubric on your own LJ, inviting people to do the same to you and posting your Christmas Wish List that people can then come and try to make your wishes come true. Look up ^ ^ ^ ^ I've had some of my wished granted already.

It's all about passing on the Christmas spirit.
