My (selfish) Grown Up Christmas List

Yeah yeah... I wish for world peace and all that crap, but if we're really gonna talk about things we *want* we gotta get real.

I want:
  • a car that isn't about to fall off it's wheels
  • a full time job with insurance
  • my own place
  • enough money to live far away but still come home to visit when I want to
  • the library to have the audio books I want *when* I want them
  • tropical temperatures
  • Disneyland to move to wherever I'm living
  • my bills paid off
  • my travel account to generate 1000% interest
  • my *whole* family here for Christmas
  • someone to organize a weekly (I'd settle for monthly) volleyball night
  • to get out of Idaho- even if it's only for a little while
  • a better work schedule so I can have a life
  • people at work who will talk to me and not make me feel like a moron
  • to not have to work Christmas day for the first time in my life (major bummer)
  • to not have to work New Year's Day at 5 a.m.
  • a haircut/color that doesn't make me want to wear a bag on my head like the last/current monstrosity did (I miss Kara)
  • a happy place
  • hip hop and rap to die
  • to see all the places in the world I've ever wondered about
  • people to appreciate How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the live action one) instead of trashing it
  • a "George Bailey" experience
  • my self confidence back
  • a publisher to knock on my door and say, "Hey, I hear you've written an awesome book. Can I publish it?"
  • a nap
  • a lunch date with Jimmy Fallon
  • Richard Armitage to be my first kiss
  • for my friend to meet Alan Rickman (my one unselfish wish...?) but I want to be there too to laugh at her when she slobbers all over him (ahh... there it is)
  • my DVD player to get fixed
  • a time machine (I forgot the crystals)
  • my own Netflix account so I don't have to wait for my sister to get lame kid movies
  • someone to stop me- this list is ridiculous

Dear Heather, I love you & your Christmas list. Hope Santa is good to you this year!

Actually, there are a number of things on this list that are quite achievable. Nap? You can do that. I KNOW you can. Monthly volleyball night? I'm sure you can make this happen, it just make take some initiative. I appreciate How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I think it is a great movie and I would easily watch that over "A Christmas Story", any day.

Can I chime in with a couple of my own though?

I would like:

to be able to hang out with you
to see my sister who is in Uruguay
to get a dishwasher because washing dishes by hand is the bane of my existence
time and inspiration to finish my book

There you go. Merry Christmas Bakeshow. Love you.

Heather!!!! You turn that frown upside down! This post almost made me cry :( Can you add to your list a camera for Kelly? Santa is more likely to read this list than mine...
