It's that time of year again. The time when families get together, eat an obscene
amount of food, play a borderline violent game of Pictionary
and pass out in front of football (or this year, Taylor Swift
Oh wait. Is that just MY family?
It's also the time of year when we start to think about holiday giving. Lately all my man and I have talked about is what to get for whom, which charities will receive our donations, and how much to tip the waste-removal-technicians. (Sounds so much better than garbage men, no?) And of course it's the time of year when everyone in my family asks me . . . "Have you updated your amazon wish list?"
Yeah, creative thinkers they're not. They like to be told what I already have and what I want most of all, so that there's no confusion and no mess ups. Like that year I gave my hubby a Dire Straits CD, all proud of myself because I thought he loved them, and he looked at me like I'd just upchucked on his shoe.
Anyway, I figured I'd share the latest editions to my wish list with ya'll, and see if you wanted to share what's on YOUR holiday wish list. Here's what I clicked on recently.
1) Bobby Flay's THROWDOWN! Cookbook
Every time I watch this show I think to myself "I wonder which one was REALLY better." Now I can cook it all myself and find out. Also, I've been fantasizing about the German Chocolate Cake recipes for like a year.
2) Glee: The Complete First Season
I can't believe I don't own this yet. Glee brings the happy. Especially season one. Doesn't everyone need a DVD in the house that brings the happy?
3) The Vampire Diaries: Season One
You know that thing where you have a list of five famous people you can smooch and your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/partner isn't allowed to get mad? Ian Somerhalder is on mine.
4) Bryan Adams: Bare Bones
Have I mentioned my life-long devotion to Bryan Adams? Well, it's actually only been since sixth grade, but that's longer than most of you reading this have been alive, so there you go. He has a new album coming out. I'm so there.
5) Modern Family: Season One
I could watch this show all day every day. Which means if I get it, no more writing. Hmmm.... Maybe not the best idea.
6) Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn AND
Archvillain #1 by Barry Lyga
Ever since that panel reading we did back in early November, I've been thinking about the passages read from these books and chuckling. I guess that means I should read then all the way through!
That's everything, for now. Of course I'm also wishing for peace in Korea, enough food and shelter for everyone this holiday season, and an end to all the senseless bullying, but you can't put those things on an Amazon wish list.
So now, it's YOUR turn to share! What's on your wish list this year?
