My new wishlist

(stolen from cadhla)

* Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Jenny/Giles 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 to make sure that these wishes are things you really, truly want.

* If you wish for real-world 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.

* 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.

Step Two:

* Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, 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 and to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, 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.

My Wishlist (good for birthday and Christmas)

1. A Jonas/Jaime Bionic Woman fic. The angstier the better.

2. A Gibbs/Abby NCIS fic. The cuter the better.

3. A new computer. I don't care how fast the modem is as long as it's not dial-up. MSN-capable HP Pavilion preferred.

4. The Sorcerer's Stone pendant from The Noble Collection.

5. Snape's Wand, also from The Noble Collection.

6. The Becoming Jane soundtrack CD.

7. A LUSH giftcard.

8. A Republic of Tea giftcard.

9. A Soft Surroundings giftcard.

10. An end to the war in Iraq. Bobby's home but a lot of other soldiers aren't.

Oh, and BPAL, but you already knew that.
