Okay, here we go:
1.) Chocolate-Covered Pretzels – g. ) I want this but please don’t give it to me. Seriously, these things are sooo good that I’m better off not eating any! Know what I mean?
2.) DVD – “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” starring Jane Seymour – d.) Saw this years ago and have wanted it ever since. Such a great plot.
3.) Hires Root Beer – b.) Difficult to find, but I finally found a source. If you haven’t tasted Hires Root Beer, you haven’t tasted Root Beer! Period. When I was a girl, many moons ago, (many), it was a rare family treat to have Hires Root Beer floats. Delicious! Well, I finally discovered that you can order it through Home Town Favorites: http://www.hometownfavorites.com/products.asp?dept=1018&number=HFBE735&pagenumber=3 They specialize in nostalgic toys, goodies, and apothacary – like “Evening in Paris” perfume! Check it out.
4.) Trip to Hawaii – f.) Have zero interest in this. Seriously. No offense to Hawaii, but it just isn’t on my “I’d-love-to-go-there” list.
5.) Poinsettia – i.) Makes me feel guilty. Here’s why. Unlike Michelle at This One’s for the Girls: http://thisonesforthegirls.wordpress.com/2008/12/14/twelve-days-of-christmas-day-1/ I have a knack for keeping Poinsettias alive. I mean, they thrive in my house. And I just do not want a bloomin’ poinsettia in May. But I feel guilty if I throw out a live plant. And I can’t bring myself to deprive it of water. So, Hero finally disposes of it when I’m not home. No matter. I still feel guilty. So, please, no poinsettia.
6.) Chia Pet – a.) Hero and our sons have threatened to give this to me for years. Every year I beg them not to. What if it thrived like the poinsettia?
7.) Diamonds – e.) I already have too many. Ha-ha-ha! Actually, I think c.) g.) and i.) might also apply here.
8.) Goodwill Gift Card – h.) Limitless potential. This speaks for itself.
9.) Dual Bag Vacuum Cleaner – j.) If you haven’t checked out this website, you really need to. And do it now, while there’s still time to show it to your hubby before Christmas! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F2md4uGmMU
10.) Rubbermaid Spatulas with wood handles – c.) A woman can never have too many of these! I’m not kidding. I use them all the time, sometimes several while cooking one meal. Mine are getting worn out, and I haven’t been able to find replacements – anywhere! Please, if you know where I can find Rubbermaid Spatulas with wood handles, tell me! I’ve purchased expensive, gourmet brand spatulas but they don’t compare. I want something flexible, with a good edge. Not those plastic, inflexible things, and not something with such a rounded edge that they don’t do the job – like the ______ brand, which I paid $8.00 a piece for!
There you have it. My Wish List for Christmas, 2008.
