I don't even celebrate Christmas. Still, the societal transition to red Starbucks cups & that sparkly tinsel that gets all over your clothes has got me thinking about my mental holiday wishlist, no matter how unrealistic. Let's just say that a few of the items gracing it are more doable than others. Want to see? It goes something like this:
KEY: 1. Damask tote with pink ruffle by Gussy Sews to haul around all my junk necessities; 2. GPS device to keep from being lost all the damn time now that I have a vehicle; 3. For the Dems to somehow miraculously take back Congress, despite this month's election results; 4. Record Player and Hearts 5-Pack of Screen-Printed Cards from Two Guitars so I can write to my D.C. friends in style; 5. Goldwell Kerasilk Rich Care Shampoo, because I'm worth it. Oh, wrong motto?; 6. Gift cards to places with inexpensive clothing so that I don't have to curb my shopping habit just because I'm unemployed; 7. Canon EOS Rebel T2i so I can learn to take photos on something that isn't my iPhone; 8. Skin that doesn't make me look like a 13-year-old boy going through puberty; 9. An iPad. This is actually at the top of my list, but it's just about as realistic as #16; 10. These sold-out ELLE Ryder ankle boots in cognac; 11. "City of Bones," the first book in the Mortal Instruments series; 12. A job, if you please; 13. For the women of Northeast Ohio to ease up on their '80s hairdos; 14. Bumble & Bumble Holding Spray, because I'm still worth it; 15. Tiered White Bubble Necklace from Basil the Cat, which I've been eying for about a year; 16. World peace. What you thought I was totally selfish?
