What I really think about Christmas lists.

Over the past years, it has slowly become more and more difficult for me to form a Christmas list for any relative who asks. For one, it feels embarrassingly juvenile, and on top of that: I can’t think of anything I want, I end up putting dull, practical things on my list such as: socks, a French press, a bread pan, etc., or I make a list of things I don’t want to spend my own money on/are too lazy to buy. I usually spend the entire time drafting up a list that consists of a few movies and books, and a sarcastic abundance of unmentionables/high priced items I could never seriously ask a relative for, but, if I could have, I would have asked for:

  • An eighth, or maybe I’d be so bold as to ask for a quarter;
  • Rolling papers;
  • Hanae Mori Butterfly, 1.7 oz. Eau de Parfum;

  • Some condoms (though this may seem like a strange request);
  • A hookah;
  • Beer, probably Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat and a chocolate stout of some sort;

  • A few packs of cigarettes (2 pck. Marb. 27s, 1 pck. Marb. Milds, 3 pcks. Marb. Smooths, 1 pck. Camel Lights, 1 pck. Kamel Reds) to last me through the occasional cravings until this time next year;

  • A pack of lighters (my favorite colors: blue, purple, green, red);
  • A watch (non-ugly);

  • A new stem for Detective Stabler;
  • Gas card;
  • Grocery gift card;
  • Uhh, money.

If only…

    Haha, I love this post. You should compile a book of “What i wanted to ask my family for Christmas, but never did”. Get people to send in their lists. Kind of a new wave now ever since that postcard guy did it, the one from the DC area, can’t remember his name.
    Anyway, even for your own amusement, I think you’d get some pretty crazy responses.

    By the way, I dig your blog.
