What You Really Want For Christmas...

Inspired in by Post Secret and also by her occasional Confession Booth post thingies on Reasons You Will Hate Me [see sidebar there - check out some of the others while you're at it, hey its a Friday, don't tell me you're doing actual work], I have something a little different today.

The headline says it all.

The idea is you post your comments - anonymously. So you click that box instead of logging in as you usually would.

If Santa's sack could really have anything in it, even the sort of intangible thing that's literally impossible to giftwrap, and not just because you seem to have a knack for cutting the paper 3cm too short ...what do you really want for Christmas?

Like the christmassy song 'my 2 front teeth' except my back ones, to be able to get my wisdom teeth out without it hurting at all, or costing anything!!

I know it is rather cliched to say peace on earth, but I would at least like to have a feeling of shock and surprise everytime heaps of people get killed in Iraq, Israel etc, rather than thinking "oh well, another day, another bomb".

I'd like a 5 hour massage to work through all the kinks and knots in my muscles one-by-one.

Actually, since this is fantasy, make that a weekly order.


(Would daily be pushing it too far?)

Oh yeah, and peace on earth, end to hunger etc.

I'd like to go Christmas ice-skating with somebody cute 'n' cuddly.

It would be cool if my mum won Lotto. She needs it more than me really but would still share some will me or buy me something cool.

Opps just realised that's not specific to Christmas. Hang on--a super winning Lotto ticket for mum. Ahh.

For my family to be well and happy.

That's my biggest no limitation christmas wish.

After that I would like a house, a car and business class, round the world travel (as first class doesn't exist anymore).

Um - how many are we allowed? Cause I could go on all day probably.

And it goes without saying the whole world peace, no poverty, no sweatshops, good health care for all, greed replaced by giving and stopping carbon emissions.

After that I would like for the hair on my legs (and other places...) not to grow so I don't have to go and keep getting ridiculously expensive waxing done.

You can totally tell who I am can't you?

to have Ed as our live-in care when we are decrepit and can't do anything for ourselves but it won't matter because our glorious golden child, the first born son of our first born son, heir to the family name, ignoring the fact that we actually have another grandchild actually prior to him but who really cares, as blessed Ed shall be there to look after our every whim and repay all that we have invested in him over the years like last Christmas when we spent $500 on him in the form of any kind of electronic or kitchenware good he desired and bought that other girl a sack of corn except we didn't even give to her, we gave it in voucher form to a child in Africa who we would probably like better than her anyway

Well they do like me better than the other grandchildren - except for Ed maybe. Since Grandma and Grandpa replaced that other inferior grandchild (Betty? Bill? Bo? Bel?) with ME things have really been looking up. Heard she wasn't up to scratch and didn't appreciate her mattress protectors and 150 pack-undies anyway. So ungrateful!!!

But if i don't leave my name how will I get my present?


This is a worry. I hope it gets through to the right people (i.e. I don't want to end up with the presents belonging to Beauty Pagent contenders.)

I want the one thing that a girl needs...150 pairs of k-mart style undies. With floral patterns, or better yet, days of the week (in case you forget how long you've been wearing them).

Least anonymous comment ever, Trelease.

Anon - My mum seems to have a never-ending supply of multi-pack floral undies despite my constant yelling to her how I hate them and don't wear them, so I could probably get you some if Santa doesn't pull through.

Must use this opportunity to mention how my mum even managed to give me multi-pack undies for Christmas last year after her month-long trip to Europe. Yes. I kid you not. My parents went to Europe and I got a multi-pack of undies from Marks and Spencer. Except this time they were stripy, not floral. But blue. They're always blue.

Hi Child in Africa! We've requested that you get some food for Christmas.

(was it racist that I assumed a child in Africa would be experiencing hunger?)

The people around me at the mo to be happy and not stressed. to be able to travel home for more than 3 weeks, that two things, soz!

Aahhh Lou... is it some how possible that your mum and my granny are the same person - like those weird quiet businessmen who turn out to have two parallel families and a scandalous lifelong juggling act?! They do seem to be adhering to the same bullshit underwhelming present-buying policy that no other person in their right mind would continue doing after all these years...

And J E G: does this mean that you ARE travelling back, even for a mere 3 weeks?! :D don't get my hopes up!!

In our family us three girls have spent our whole lives getting the same thing but in different colours (because that makes it different). But for the last maybe 5 years, we always receive a pair of pajamas and some underwear.

And to be completely honest...

They're the best presents of the day and we expect them now and specifically ask for them.

And I did try to make my last one as anonymous as possible, but I guess everyone knows that I want a kitty. It better be under my tree then!
