All I Want for Christmas

Saturday, November 13, 2010

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?

What are you hoping for this holiday season?


  1. It's interesting to see what people want for Christmas... Me, I just want to be treated like a nice person.. any day, but on Christmas day is a start. Don't act like my smile means I want to molest your kids, or that because I'm beside you at the light it's because I'm thinking bad things, or that because my dog is only part pit bull it's vicious and wants to kill you. I would just like to be accepted as a human, and not someone with ulterior motives that are nefarious in nature. Can I get that for the holidays? please?

  2. I love number 14! Bumble & Bumble make some of the best hair products I've seen. I haven't finished my holiday wish list yet, but the dems winning is def on it!


  3. This was adorable, Kate. You should have readers submit their own!! Good luck with the whole "world peace" thing. I'm sending good vibes your way re: the job.

  4. I love your list! I'm thinking of doing a post on some things I want for Christmas, as out of reality as they might be. #7 and #8 are definitely things I would have on my list.

  5. I want a new camera and a handbag that is way too expensive.
