It's been a few years since I participated in [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes, largely because finances have precluded reciprocating in any way other than virtually, but I find myself in need of some holiday cheer. Most of these are actually retreads from the last year I did participate; there's some stuff that I've posted to my personal journal before, and one or two new things. (As always, if you were planning to get me a gift, you are not obligated to buy me something from this list; feel free to use it if you need inspiration, but I will be happy enough to see what fortune brings me.)

The rules, if you've never participated before )

My list:

  1. Stocking stuffers. My mother continued doing stockings for my brother and me long after we grew up...even after she converted to Judaism. I've tried taking it over for myself, but my husband (bless him) has never really grokked the concept - I'm hard enough to shop for when it comes to big-ticket items - and buying my own stocking goodies kind of misses the point.
  2. A plush Pudsey. I'm a lifelong Anglophile, and besides, he's just CUTE! ;-) (I'm in no position to bid on any of the autographed ones - and really, one would be lost on me, because I firmly believe that bears were made to be hugged, not put on a shelf and admired.)
  3. Pocket Dragons. Between the original distributors going into receivership and Real & Muff Musgraves' retirement at the end of 2006, this has become a much harder wish to grant, I know. I currently own (in alphabetical order) Happy Camper, I Said No!!, Magic Reading Hat, Oops!, Playing Footsie, Take Your Medicine, two copies of Rub My Tummy? and Tea for Two. If you're looking for suggestions, Purple would be a good choice, as would It's Okay to Cry, Kiss Kiss Kiss, or You Touch My Heart.
  4. Wizard101 gift cards. (Yeah, I play an MMO designed for younger players. It's a habit of mine; my last MMO was Puzzle Pirates. *kanyeshrug*)
  5. A black miniskirt in Size 30/32 (gently-used perfectly acceptable). Anything longer than 22" waist-to-hem is good. A-line would be great; kerchief hem would rock my world. :D
  6. And here's where I shoot for the stars: Tickets to Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson The Immortal at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA in January. I've never been fortunate enough to see the Cirque live, and I'm fascinated to see what they will do with his music.

It's gonna be a really lean $WINTERHOLIDAY for us. Whiny, and bordering on passive-aggressive. Feel free to skip. )

It didn't work. But thank you anyway. :D

...maybe I should mention it in a less passive-aggressive way than buried in the comments on another post. It's a week from tomorrow (Thursday), and [livejournal.com profile] gridlore tells me that folks have been asking him what I want. Thus, the following:

  • I have updated my wishlists at Amazon, WishRepublic, and The Purple Store.
  • Pocket Dragons will, as always, be welcome, though opportunities to acquire them appear to be getting fewer and further between. I currently own (in alphabetical order) Happy Camper, I Said No!!, Magic Reading Hat, two copies of Rub My Tummy?, and Tea for Two. (Thanks as always to [livejournal.com profile] dandelion_diva and [livejournal.com profile] medancer for indulging my habit previously.)
  • For a more intimate splurge, anything in Bath and Body Works' Warm Vanilla Sugar line is always welcome, as are their Three-in-Ones (Body Wash, Bubble Bath and Shampoo) in Cinnamon Bun Heaven, Frosting Forever, or (if you can find it) Wickedly Hot Chocolate.

[livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes has officially started accepting wishlists for the 2006 $WINTERHOLIDAY season, so it's time to update mine. As always, if you were planning to get me a gift, you are not obligated to buy me something from this list; feel free to use it if you need inspiration, but I will be happy enough to see what fortune brings me.

After finding the Purple Store link again while doing my Year in Review, I wandered back out to the site...and discovered they now have a wishlist feature. I'll be adding this to my wishlist post, as well, but in the meantime:
