    All I want for Christmas (The Holidays)...

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Lewdog, Dec 24, 2013.

    So with it being a couple days before Christmas I thought I would start a little fun thread for people to say what they want for Christmas. I'll start.

    All I want for Christmas is a mail order bride. I don't really care what country she comes from or if she can cook, as long as she does the dishes I'm more than happy to cook. The most important thing is that she doesn't snore or fart in her sleep.

    ...oh and I also want peace on Earth and all that other jazz too. :D

    Books and alcohol. And money (so I can buy books and alcohol).

    I'm a man of simple tastes.

    Seeing as this is writing forum, I'll ask for a 1,000,000 seller to be out in time for next Xmas.

    Hmm.. All I want is... something that can transfer the stories in my head unto paper.

    No wait!

    100 grand.
    So I can stay at home and have piece of mind while I write my novel :3

    Enough money to live on for a year or two in order to quit my part-time job and become freelance or start my own business. I'm dying to start my own business, but you know what they say... it takes money to make money.

    Wishful thinking...

    The continued good health of my nearest and dearest.

    A job I don't despise.

    I wish the clouds overhead would pay some attention to the calendar and provide some snow, instead of the heavy downpours, (not to mention gale force winds) we've been getting the past few days. If it keeps up like this, the kids'll not be able to get outside to play with their new toys—I hated that. (Also meant I couldn't escape Great Auntie Mo's attentions. :eek:)

    I can see Santa providing brand new bikes when what they really need are canoes. ;)

    Damn you took the words right out of my mouth. I also want a few DVDs, but books, and booze, and money is essentially it. :D

    Whiskey. Lots of whiskey. Preferably Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey. Really, this dry county, no liquor on Sunday shit is really getting on my nerves.

    Other than that, I want to win the lottery and be able to quit my job so I can have Rain When I Die finished by Xmas of next year instead of 2015 when I have planned.

    Books. Lots of books. A Minecraft calendar.
    For my boyfriend to find a programming job.
    A dog.
    Health and happiness, for me and all my loved ones.

    And if we're really talking, I'd like enough money to pay off my parent's house, to buy them an RV and spending money to travel with, and JUST enough money so that I can purchase a tiny cabin in the woods somewhere in Washington.
    Ya know, just in case anyone has some spare money to throw away.... lol.

    You did change the title? It's a good one.

    I got the books I wanted from Kat as well as a few other things. Now all I would like is a job that doesn't make my back problems any worse than they are, time for us to finally finish our WIP, and more time to spend alone with Kat. We wake up and go to sleep together every day, but there's still never enough time for us to just to hang out. It sucks when the world keeps coming between us when all we'd want is to be together.

    Have you ever tried Elijah Craig? From what I hear, it's supposed to be really good.

    All I wanted was power back for my family after the ice storm we had over the weekend. Came down to the last minute, but everyone's out of the cold now.

    I've pretty much got all I want at the moment ...at least all that's attainable. But if the Christmas Fairy were to turn up and prang me with her wand, I'd ask for a separate room in our house we could call 'the library' so we'd have a place to put all our books. As it is, they're scattered all around the house and piling up, despite frequent culls. Dang... and here's me, writing yet another...!

    Glad you got power back. I lost power for two days after the storm, but others weren't so fortunate to get it back so soon and there are still thousands without power. At least we have a fireplace, I feel sorry for the families that don't.

    Gosh. Where do you guys live? That sounds major. I remember going through one Christmas when our gas was 'off' and that was not fun, even though we did have electricity. It's pretty much a necessity these days to have some alternative form of heat. Scary. Hope you all get it back ASAP - Christmas or no Christmas.

    Yessir. I even have a little dialogue exchange set up where my MC (the first three or so chapters are her last day alive) looks up at the overcast sky and mentions something about "I think it's gonna rain." just before she leaves to go carry out her suicide plan. To the intuitive reader, by the end of the prologue section the meaning should be fairly evident (I hope): "I think it's gonna rain when I die."

    We live in Ontario. An ice storm hit the south part of the province that froze most of the power lines while trees fell down on other main lines. It was kind of scary driving into part of a city at night and seeing nothing but pitch black where there's supposed to be houses and shops.
