Thursday 13 v. 39 - The Christmas List One

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


What's on Carmen's Christmas List?
(Sorry those of you with Blogger Beta. It won't let me sign in and comment)
  1. iTrip for my iPod, so I can listen to my iPod in the car. I have a thingy that runs through the tape deck now, but it sucks.
  2. This may be a gift to myself, but I was thinking about upgrading the iPod to the Video one, so I can download Buffy episodes and watch them on these long airplane rides I take. But THEN I heard about the rumor of the NEW video ipod (out in January?) so I'm taking a wait-and-see, give-me-an-apple-gift-card approach.
  3. The Little Mermaid on DVD
  4. iTunes gift cards always come in handy for downloading more music to work out to. I have 10 different workout playlists, and they get old fast.
  5. Money money money money money. As my dad says, it's one-size-fits all!
  6. A new mouse for my computer. A laser mouse, instead of this stupid rolly-ball one that Dell sent me.
  7. A "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" Heros t-shirt. I think this might be the best show since Buffy!
  8. Philosophy Cinnamon Buns body wash.
  9. New space bags, the best travel invention ever. I've popped some of my old ones.
  10. Two tickets (one for me and one for my dad) to go see the UVA basketball team play in our brand new arena! (I'll buy the tickets, I just want my dad to promise to go with me.)
  11. I want my family (especially me and my sister) to all get along while we're home for the holidays. That's a bigger wish than you know.
  12. I want my mom to make me my traditional Christmas breakfast of fried eggs and bacon with decaf coffee. :)
  13. I want every one of you to have a great holiday season filled with peace and love!

    iPods have video versions now?! Wow, I am far behind in my technology knowledge. That would be fun to download episodes of my favorite shows to my iPod...especially since I don't have cable TV!

    Happy Thursday!

    I hope you get everything on your list, Carmen! I want a new mouse, too. My nice optical mouse died, and I really miss it.

    Louise said...

    I hope you get everything you want and more.

    I'm secretly hoping for the Little Mermaid too.

    My TT this week is all about my Christmas book list.

    Happy Thursday

    For whoever is buying your presents, Carmen: Let them know QVC has a GREAT deal on the philosophy Cinnamon Buns shower gel. You can get a huge 32 oz. size for only $21 and some change plus shipping and handling. My human loves that scent as well, but it only makes her crave hot coffee and a cinnamon bun after showering!

    Happy Thursday to you! :)

    What a great list! Thanks for dropping by.

    colleen said...

    I love your dad's quote about money!! The Little Mermaid? Am I missing something?

    I have a snowflake maker and directions on how to take apart a magic 8 ball!

    Melissa said...

    Sounds like you want a lot of great stuff! Hope you get what you want!

    Lazy Daisy said...

    I like your list. Hope you and Dad can make the game (that will probably be the best gift.) Hugs and prayers that all goes well on the family front. Christmas brings out both the best and the worst in people.

    Red said...

    Here's hoping that it all comes true for you this Christmas.

    And get your Mum to make you a couple of pancakes with that Christmas breakfast, then take a picture of your plate, post it and make us cornflakes types jealous!

    Kukka-Maria said...

    I don't like that "Heroes" show. But, then again, I couldn't stand "Buffy," either.

    Don't hate me because I'm beautiful nor because I have different taste in television shows...

    Renee said...

    I hope you get everything you need and a lot of what you want...especially no fighting w/ the sis.

    Happy Holidays.

    Thanks for the great holiday wishes.

    To comment at blogger beta right now, you need to post as "other" or anonymous" it will allow you to do that. It is being fixed they assure us...hmmm....

    I hope all of your family gets along . Why not trying to be very zen and not expect ANYTHING from your sister, like don't expect valedation, don't take things personally(even if they are, pretend you don't notice)...if someone is being passive aggresive...take the mirror response approach. For example Someone says to you:" I didn't know you liked fushia and that sweater is a color I wouldn't have thought would suit your skin tone."

    You respond, "Oh thank you, you really like my sweater on me I am so glad you like it"

    If someone is plying mindgames then be as transparent nd loving as you can be. If they hope to get a rise out of you...or hurt your feelings, then act liek everything is a compliment, trust me if they have hurtful intentions, you just stopped the game...and they won't say passive aggresive things to you. They will stop saying hurtful things.

    Just kill them with kindness...I promise you will have lots of funw ith this attitude and you will enjoy yourself.

    Remember all love and happiness is inside of us, even our praents and family can not give us the valedation we so crave..it is our to give to ourSELVES!

    Fun list Carmen thanks!

    Here is my list about comments on blog(to leave a comment you might have to click on "other"

    I just moved to Blogger Beta, and I seem to be having these sort of issues. It anonymous-ized a bunch of my comments. But I could sign in to people's sites when I was on regular Blogger, so I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Hmph.

    I was just thinking of downloading some songs, but I remember the days when stealing music was free. I guess I will have to sign up for iTunes or something.

    I love Heros too! I can't get enough of it.

    Chickadee said...

    I have the Little Mermaid on VHS...so yea, I can see where a DVD would be an upgrade!

    And yes, the space bags are awesome! It's amazing how much you can cram into those things.

    My 13 are up.

    Tanya said...

    Excellent list and I agree with most of it - I want an iPod and The Little Mermaid too. I'm cruising eBay all the time, waiting for the bargains :)

    Happy holidays to you too.

    Tug said...

    KarenW said...

    Katherine said...

    You have a fantastic list but my favorite is No. 5. I think this would be everyone's favorite. Who wouldn't.
