All I want for Christmas...

A motorcycle
Update: I'm a little overwhelmed right now. I was going to write something frivolous about the disaster that is my holiday decorating, but I got an e-mail just now. An occasional commenter and wonderful man and friend sent me notice that he had fulfilled this wish. Soon a nurse will be travelling to remote villiages in South Africa to treat sick people. She'll have her own motorcycle, her own helmet, and someone who was once hurting and making his children scared and sad will be well because of Jason - aka JMo. This may not be the appropriate response, but I think he should totally get laid tonight. Thank you Jason. You are a good person. You make me want to be good too.

A bag

A leader

Some music

A job

How about you?

1. A puppy;
2. Someone to walk the puppy and clean up after it.

1. A wife. I hear they're useful.
2. A home. Not just a cardboard box on the beach.
3. Some coffee. Especially if it can magically appear in my hand. I'm thirsty.
4. More time. And not while I'm at work thankyouverymuch.

I want Herr Doktor Smartypants to be smitten with me.

I also want him to have meant the words "Come with me to Italy in March."

If the above is applicable, I would also like me some airfare.

A maid.

A laundress. (In case the maid "don't do laundry.")

The money to pay the maid and the laundress.

Cheesy, but - A healthy baby.

Also, someone to organize, register, attend the shower, and generally do all the preparation for said baby.

I second Teebs.

Man, that Lotta Jansdotter bag is hot. I think I may steal that idea as my Pollyanna suggestion for my in-laws' gift exchange.

I want a Gorrilla.

Adopted through WWF- or a Macaw, or maybe an Iguana. A giraffe would be cool.

Ok so I want to adopt the entire freaking animal kingdom.

Oh, and I want a blog that is not controlled so obviously by the Chinese Govt.

I think I'm more likely to get the animals.

Cheers, to you and yours, I am finally able to comment again, and so I won't be a stranger.... unless of course you get a court order.

I want your post on anal leakage and fantasy football to be part of a collection of essays you write that are published by Breakaway Books.

And I want someone else to cook dinner for the rest of my life....

What I want, I buy. Then either I assign it to my husband as a gift from him, or I let a busy friend repay me for it so she doesn't have to do the shopping.

• Merrell Primo Chill Massif boots—my feet were the warmest part of my body out in the frigid 12-degree air this morning.

• 8-lb. hand weights.

• Teeny memory cards so Mr. Tangerine and I can extricate all those photos from our cell phones.

I also want chocolate-brown flannel sheets, but I don't have room to store any more linens. Three people + 1,250 sq. ft. = quit buying crap, woman!
