A (Very Serious) Christmas Wishlist, Part II

Some time ago, I posted a stupid Christmas wishlist. Though I seriously do want a pink typewriter (or any typewriter, for that matter, so long as it clacks noisily, dings loudly and so long as it works), I must say I can do without the others I wrote in there. Now that Christmas is a little over a month away, I thought I’d write down a few things that I would be more than joyful to receive (nevermind that there is only one person out there who would actually bother ♥). This list is devoid of wishful thinking (i.e. a dSLR, a Wii, a new laptop).

1. The gift of Hanson, preferably the Strong Enough to Break DVD and/or Middle of Nowhere Acoustic. I will not like (but will still accept LOL, maybe) pirated copies as I love these boys dearly and feel terrible “stealing” from them.

2. The gift of Hannah Montana. I am serious. I would like stickers, a lunch box, a cardboard cutout etc etc. Anything with Miley/Hannah, better if it’s pink and sparkly.

3. Rosaries. I am not Catholic, I do not pray, the last time I went to mass was at my junior year college retreat, and I never learned how to do the whole rosary thing. But I want rosaries, the none glow-in-the-dark-green kind, and lots of it.

4. A very large world map, larger than the width of my outstretched arms.

5. Animal masks and/or animal head pieces. The lion head piece belongs to a boy named David, he says he got it from Toy Kingdom. When, I do not know. This year, I hope.

6. A book on origami + origami paper and yarn or rope.

7. All the listed recordings of Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered. I already have Celine Dion’s and Silje Nergaard’s. I do not like Rufus Wainwright’s version =/

8. A drawing of a child holding a colorless balloon while walking his pet crocodile down the street.

9. A beret/beanie/skullie in red or bright blue! Knitted and very cute, of course.

10. A Dr Seuss book. Any would do, better if secondhand/pre-owned with a stranger-child’s scribbles all over. My favorite is Happy Birthday To You! which my dad got for my ninth (I think) birthday. I loved that book to bits, it felt bigger than my little girl self.

11. All the liempo I can eat (and more). I admit, I am kind of starving as I type this and this is merely my hunger speaking. Liempo is always welcome, though.

12. You, you, YOU. Christmas and New Year’s with you.

    I bought an Origami magazine earlier this year, in Natio (yeah, they have such mags in Japan. Unsurprising, maybe?). It has a few instructions on how to fold various paper flowers, and they always end up looking quite attractive (on pictures anyway). They’re very challenging, however, and I don’t understand a single word written in it.

    But I can still give it to you, if you want.

    I also have Brad Mehldau’s version of “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” It’s purely instrumental, but maybe you’re interested?

    I know it’s not Christmas anymore but just in case you still want an animal head piece, I can send one to you. (there’s monkey, zebra, giraffe,elephant, sad to say there’s no kitty available anymore)pick one. =)
