How I feel about it all: tiredtired
Soundtrack: for the clouds are clearing,and I think we're over the storm

Step One

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 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 (it'll be public) 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.

1. Donate here. I work with Alzheimer's patients. I could write a book, after a year of working with them. We need to find a cure, like yesterday.

2. Also, Sir Elton's Elton John AIDS foundation.

3. A house of my very own.

4. Something from my Amazon wish list.

5. A trip to England. Maybe dragon_charmer could show me around.

6. A decent date? *grumbles*

7. A healthy, happy birth for my patchfire and her ickle one. *loves*

8. Donate here, if you feel so inclined.

9. An Aziraphale/Crowley chapterfic. Why aren't there more of them?

10. Tickets to see Paul McCartney in concert. Whenever.

Ooh! Do those play on TV or computer? Not that it matters. I'm so tech-impaired it's not funny.
