maybe this christmas...

Wow, I can't believe it's getting to be that time of year again. Anyway, I'm Kait/Rose, 22, and I've been doing the Holiday Wishes thing for a few years running, now. So here we go again:

1. Anything from my Amazon Wishlist
I figured I would get my materialistic, purely selfish wish out of the way first. It's mostly made up things I wish I could own, but can't afford yet. I have no expectations about actually receiving anything on the list, but I thought I'd put it out there just in case. You don't have to send it through Amazon, either. I'm happy to give out my details, and to take previously owned items you no longer want/need.

2. A donation to the Canines With A Cause charity
This wish is the one nearest and dearest to my heart this year, because I benefited directly from this organization as a client. It's great organization, still very small and local to my hometown of Ottawa, Canada. They train mobility assistance dogs to clients in need, like me, completely not-for-profit. The only thing the client pays for is for the hours it takes to complete team training, which is pretty amazing when these dogs cost around $15, 000 to train. I was matched with my puppy, Celeste, in April 2008 and she and I have been inseparable ever since. She goes everywhere with me. To class at uni, to Spain & Portugal, and she'll even be with me when I do this year's Olympic Torch relay. ANYWAY. As you can see, I think this organization is really special, and I'd love it if anyone would be willing to donate to them in Celeste's name. Or if you'd rather donate more locally to you, check out websites like Assistance Dogs International to find out where you can do that.

3. Make me a mix CD.
This one's pretty self-explanatory, I think. I have eclectic taste in music, so... Send me a mix of your favorite music. Send me a mix based on your favorite fandom, or pairing. Whatever. I don't care. Just send me music. I don't care how you do it. You can send it to me via internets in a zip file, or or as an actual CD in the mail. Either way, I will be happy.

4. Give me ideas I can turn into a story.
I'm a writer. It's my hobby, and my escape. I'd love it if people would share experiences, ideas, any kind of prompt or idea I could possibly look to when suffering from writer's block to give myself a kick in the butt. Advice and what works for fellow writers would be great, too. I mostly write fanfic and do written roleplay, but one of these days the planets will align and I'll come up with a plot and characters of my own that are worth reading about. If SMeyers can do it, so can I, right?

5. Good thoughts
I can always use any good thoughts sent my way, especially this year. I suffer from chronic pain, and it's wreaked havoc on my life for the past 8 years. I'd out of school until this fall, when I finally found a program that would let me attend uni despite not having the proper credits to do so. So, I really need good thoughts that this year will work out, because if it does, then I'll be able to start my Human Rights BA next year. I'm also having fairly major foot surgery in the spring, and recovery is nine kinds of hellish, so good thoughts towards that end are appreciated as well.

6. New friends
I can always use new friends on LJ. If you're fandom obsessed, I'm your girl. I am into too many things to name, but to give you some idea: Supernatural, Harry Potter, Grey's Anatomy, Glee, Bones, Torchwood, Dead Like Me, etc etc. I am also a hugely hopeless comic book nerd, both Marvel and DC. I am that kind of girl.

7. A new wallpaper for my desktop/laptop
I have a Supernatural themed wallpaper that I received last Christmas, and I'd like to change it up. I'd love it if someone would take the time to make me a new one. It can be fandom, or nature themed or whatever. It is ridiculously easy to make me happy.

8. Write me something
As much as I love writing things for other people, I'd love it if someone took the time to write me some fanfic. Getting fic as a present makes me giddy.

9. Spoil yourself
I know the holiday season is all about giving rather than receiving, but I think it's important to buy yourself a little present, too. Love yourself as much as you love others.

10. Smile
It's such a simple thing, but it makes a huge difference for you and the people around you. :)

I can be reached at theunintendedmuse@gmail.com if you want my other contact info.

Have a great season, all! Mwah.
I can do 2, 5 and 6. I will try to do 9 since i don't do that often and I do smile everyday.

I will make a donation to your charity animals are dear to me.

as for new LJ friends hello fellow Supernatural and Harry Potter fan. I can never have enough fandom friends.

Oh but before I add you I want you to know that I am Wiccan I do talk about my faith but it doesn't dominate my journal. So if you are okay with it you can add me. If not I understand.

Thank you so much! You're awesome, and I will definitely be adding you. One of my really good friends from ages ago is Wiccan, and I have no problem with it. I'm kind of agnostic, myself.
#1
(oh, LJ ate my comment or something. Hope I'm not double posting this now..)

I have something I could send for you from your Amazon wishlist, used but in good condition! E-mailing you right about... now.

-D
i love this list.
its not all "send me something in the mail!!"
im guilty of having a lot of physical wants.

I smiled (your # 10), when I read this entry.

We can be LJ friends, if you'd like?
I'd like that, and thank you. As fun as snail mail is, I love getting stuff via the internets just as much. And it makes me feel good to do it this way, too, since I can't always grant mail wishes myself. Also, icon love!
I'd love to grant #6. It's like a wish for both of us!

I'd say I enjoy all the fandoms you described. Plus anyone who really cares about animals is <3. And music, also <3.

Let me know if it's okay to add you.
I'm listening to it right now! It's fantastic, and I only had one or two of the songs in my library already. Thanks so much!
Hi I can fullfill a wish.

I can be your friend, you seem cool and I am interested in a few of your fandoms.

There is a Harry Potter community called hogwartsishome, where you can meet neew people and make new friends that are also interested in Harry Potter.
Let's see: Supernatural, Bones, Fringe, Stargate, Glee, Harry Potter, CSI and CSI:NY, Grey's Anatomy, NCIS, Law and Order: SVU, True Blood, Marvel and DC comics (X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Batman, Green Arrow, Birds of Prey, JLA...), Narnia, fairy tales, mythology, House, Dead Like Me, Black Donnellys, etc etc.

I am a fandom whore.
Hmm depending on the fandoms I may be able to do 8. Can you list a couple fandoms/pairings/whatever that you like to read?

If it's like your list above of what you like I can do Harry Potter...
I'll take anything, musically. Just send me your favorites.

I'll see what I can grant from your wish list.
I love the mix CD idea! I am so going to send you a zip of music when I get home from work!
HELLO YOU!

Babes, you were getting a package from me anyway, but I always have 5 for you, and I can do 10.
