MAKING CHRISTMAS.. MAKING CHRISTMAS.. LA LA LALA!!

Everyone likes a little foreplay before they put out *cough* so here's my obligatory intro piece :

I've lost track of how many years I've been on here, but it's been quite a few. Five? I don't remember. But hey, I'm Dementia (Demmie) and from Orlando, Fl. I write for an all-female horror blog called Gores Truly (horror fans: check it out!), and I'm into Disney Villains, plush Cthulhu, and Gossamer (that big orange monster from Bugs Bunny); as well as Big Bang Theory, horror (obviously) and a plethora (I love that word) of other various things. I'm 40-ish *cough* and happily married to my best friend, and mom to four great (usually) kids. No heartwrenching story here. I happen to be of the belief that if you have shoes on your feet, a roof over your head, clothes on your back, food in your stomach, and a pillow to sleep on at night? You're already much richer than a lot of people in the world. And then we have *gasp INTERNET ACCESS TO BOOT! I take this time of of year to be especially grateful. People tend to forget how blessed we really are.

I love this season. I have received some **wonderful** gifts from very generous members of this community in the past and I thank you all immensely for your kindness. I try to pay it forward as much as I possibly can. Now that I've caught up looking through all the previous wishlists, and fulfilled at least ten (I make it a personal to fulfill at least ten before I even consider mine), I am finally okay with posting mine.

I've been browsing through the wishes, and have started marking some I'm going to try and grant, and I'll be keeping a close eye on any other posts. I haven't commented on every post in which I've granted a wish, sometimes it's fun to be an anonymous elf. ;) I figure if I grant enough wishes and collect enough good Karma, I'll win that car (*shifty eyes*) :P Anyway, this became all kinds of TL;DR. SO ANYWAY...

Here is my list this year, just in case Santa is watching: *shifty eyes*


{ONE}. Frames : My husband & I attend a lot of comic/sci-fi cons & over the years we've accumulated a lot of autographs. A lot of 8x10's & 11x13's. We have a wall in our home we'd love to display these, a "Wall of Fame", if you will. However, we have a LOT of 8x10's with no frames, and I'd love to display them properly. So if you have any 8x10 (pr 11x13) frames lying around that you don't use, I would be HAPPY to take them!!

{TWO} Find that Catherine Coatney dream skirt You can see the outfit here Back in 2003, my husband and I attended Dragoncon. I fell in LOVE with this dress. I found it was a Catherine Coatney dress, and the owner told me she had purchased it at the Boston Fetish Flea Market. I've been looking ever since . VERY generous friend found the corset for me finally, so now I just need to track down that skirt....

{THREE}Tattoo design: Can you draw? Can you sketch? I can't even draw a stick figure. My next tattoo design will go on my left bicep (next to my heart). I want the Celtic symbol for motherhood, done so it looks metal, interlaced with my children's birthstones. I have examples to show you, so if anyone wants to help me finally design & get this piece done I've been planning for years.. that would just be swell. ;)

{FOUR} Slacker Radio: I have recently become addicted to the Alt80's station on Slacker.com, since my beloved Sunday Night Vinyl was taken off the radio around here *haz a sad*. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a one month subscription or so to my account (demmigoddess at yahoo). I would just headsplode (or would that be earsplode?)

{FIVE} Moonlight & Sunlight: Bottle of Moonlight/Starlight/Sunlight lotion made by the Nature Company in the late 90's. It was discontinued and then the store went out of business. My husband has been on a quest for thos stuff with great zeal. He says, "It has got to be the best thing I have ever smelled. Ever." I have been unable to find it. I want to surprise him with it.

{SIX} Earrings: I am ALWAYS losing earrings! Just anything not huge and bright and gaudy, and anything that will not turns my ears green. I'm a fan of silver/gold hoops, small dangle earrings, stud type earrings, etc. My ears are teh lonelee :P

{SEVEN} Sex Death and Eyeliner: Copy of the movie, not the soundtrack, Sex, Death, and Eyeliner. Again, for my husband... " I saw this in 1998-99 at a film festival, and have been unable to get a copy since." Even if you could just tell me where I could even find this anymore.

{EIGHT} Type O Negative shirts: I am a HUGELY devoted fan of Type O Negative, and was absolutely DEVASTATED beyond belief when Peter Steele passed on earlier this year. I'd take ANYTHING of theirs (I have their DVDs/CDs), as I mourn his loss pretty much on a daily basis. Actually, one of my next two tattoos (still working on a design) I want to be a Type O Negative memorial tattoo. But anything you have of Type O that a fan would appreciate, I would be cuckoo for.

{NINE} Bats! : I discovered Evening Eclipses fragrances while in Texas at a convention, and I fell in LOVE with the oils and incense and candles. If you like dark scents, check them out. I was in HEAVEN. Then I got REALLY sold, they have an ADOPT A BAT program! I LOVE LOVE LOVE bats, and just don't have the means to have one as a pet. So even if *I* don't get this wish, I think this is an AMAZING cause. I've taken particularly to Cleobatra, and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to sponsor her. But even if you check out the stories of the foster bats, and donate to the cause, that would be supermegaamazing.

{TEN} The obligatory Amazon wish list. I have a lot of movies & books and such on here that people may have lying around. I'm not particular about whether it's new or used items, so if there's something on my list that you have and don't want anymore, that would be awesomesauce.


For address information, please message me here on LJ, I fear the evil spam box monster. Can't sleep. He'll eat me, yanno. And like someone else said on here, (If you plan to stalk me, please bring cookies, I'm always running out of them.)

Oh and just a little something to remember...

I'm pretty sure I have a copy of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil around here. I'm happy to send it to you. PMing for your address.
OMG! Thank you so much! I actually HAD a copy of the book and sadly, it got lost (or someone stole it). That would be fantastic, I'll message you (and P.S. thanks so much doubly so for being the only person to comment on my wishlist LOL) ;)
Let me know if you need some help with the tattoo design. I'm pretty booked up for the holidays, but after that i'd be glad to help =P
Things are cooling down over here, so if you want to send me an email at southabi@gmail.com we can get started! =P
I just tried to send you a PM, but your privacy settings are on, so here's what I was trying to send:

Hi Demmie,
I saw your wishlist (http://community.livejournal.com/holiday_wishes/1745151.html) at holiday_wishes here and wanted to send you an email about #6, the earrings. I have a couple of pairs of hoops for pierced ears that I would be happy to send if you're interested. Just let me know!

Happy holidays!

Elizabeth
