Gotten from Andrea.
1. New readers [and COMMENTS!] of my weekly Web comic, a sarcastic melodrama about vampires in Boston, Love Has Fangs.
2. Repeal of California’s Prop 8 and other anti-gay props that recently passed in other states…or at least support of organizations working to overturn such legislation and promote marriage equality around the US.
3. A new digital camera with at least as much power as the Kodak Easy Share Z712.
4. A 5-drawer, non-Ikea dresser.
5. A fat 1:6 female action figure.
6. Sideshow Friday the 13th VII Jason 1:6 action figure.
7. Doctor Who Clockwork Droid 12" action fig.
8. Donations in my name of perishables and/or your no-longer needed clothes, books, etc. to non-religious charities.
9. Vampire schlock broadly construed!
Cross-posted here to be glossed over by the masses because I think I missed the appropriate bouncy, generous tone.
Send me an LJ message if you need to get in touch with me.
– 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.
– If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. [Note: Your home address is not required!]
– 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.
– Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, 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 guarantees with this project, 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.
Repost this in your journal so that others can see what you would like to have. Maybe someone will be able to make a holiday wish come true for you! 🙂
