The Wishlist Meme


Step One

Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 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.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post 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--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.

So, without further ado, I present... MY WISHLIST 2009

1. Copies of the movies 'Shelter', 'Star Trek', 'The Plan', 'The Proposal' and the pilot movie-ep for 'Caprica'

2. The Queer as Folk (US) box-set. This is proving very difficult to find; I may have to resort to ebay for individual seasons (I'm not paying more than $35 per season, something that's also difficult cos each season is so expensive here... Upwards of $75)

3. Tori Amos' seasonal album, John Mayer 'Battle Studies', The Glee Cast album, any Ryan Adams album, Adam Lambert 'For Your Entertainment', Kris Allen's self-titled, Jamie Cullum 'The Pursuit' (pre-ordered!!! YAY!!!)

4. Some scenic imagery; y'know, photos of trees, plants, roads, ect, and done up in Photoshop to look extra purty

5. Some J2 fic where they're in college or high school that's schmoopy but believable (and lacks a gay freakout)

6. Some Kyle/Oliver OLTL fic where they're in college and kinda-sorta-dating (cos college Oliver is adorable, and Kyle is just... GUH)

7. A JOB THAT PAYS ENOUGH MONEY TO MAKE MOVING OUT A VIABLE OPTION (OMG, the day after I posted this... I get a job! That pays REALLY well, for a year. I <3 my life)

8. An awesome holiday season and a brilliant 2010 for everyone I hold dear
