MAKING CHRISTMAS.. MAKING CHRISTMAS...

Hey all :) I'm Demmie, been around here forever, and am ITCHING to start fulfilling wishes and paying Christmas elf! 42, married with kids in Orlando, Florida. No sad story here, I actually consider myself pretty fortunate and blessed, so I'm *all* about paying it forward. BIG believer in Karma and all of that :)



1. I'd love to turn people onto my brother's band, Venus Vegas (Please like them on Facebook). Here's a link to their album on iTunes (and they're also on Spotify)... if you like Breaking Benjamin, Nickelback, and that sort of music (you know, those type of bands MTV/VH1 always pays at the end of their shows), this is totally the band you wanna get in on the ground floor with. I just think they're very talented with not nearly enough exposure, and my wish is for them to have a larger fanbase. :)

2. My second wish is for my husband's video game marketing company on Twitter, Power Level Marketing, to gain a bunch of followers on Twitter. So if you're into video games, he doesn't spam or anything like that, but he's a great source when it comes to video game happenings/news and discussions.

3. I am a bat lover. I have been eyeing Cleobatra for years. Peek-a-Boo is my next favorite. LOVE LOVE LOVE these guys, and would LOVE to be able to say.. "I HAVE A PET BAT, WANNA SEE????" :D ... even if I don't get my wish of an adopted bat, it's still a VERY worthy charity to donate to... this one has been my big wish for YEARS, and for some reason I've never been able to make it happen. I want to be a bat foster mom, LOL!

4. A Type O Negative shirt. Used, DIY, whatever. I am a majorly *HUGE* Type O Negative fan, and sadly all my shirts (I used to have four) have somehow mysteriously disappeared. :( ...

5. BPAL. This community turned me onto them years ago, and the whole subculture is overwhelming to me, no idea where to start! I've become a big fan of the darker foody type scents, scents like Bite Me (you know, chocolate, cherries, etc).. anything in that realm I would be extremely happy with. Always up for something new!

6. Photo frames, 11 x 13 or especially 8 x 10. We attend a lot of conventions and we are lucky enough have a collection of autographed photos. We'd like to make a "Wall of Fame" in our home (similar to what you see in some restaurants), and only have a few of the photos on display. We have about 25 just sitting all sad and lonely in a folder that aren't up on our wall :(

7. Um.. I'm a makeup fiend (I'm active over on makeupalley.com). So if you happen to have any gift cards to Ulta or Sephora (even with a couple of bucks on it), I'd love to have it.

8. When filling out your Christmas cards this year, take ONE CARD and SEND it
to this address:
A Recovering American Soldier, c/o Walter Reed Army
Medical Center, 6900 Georgia Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20307-5001.


Apparently the USPS will NOT deliver mail addressed like that, unfortunately. The best address to use is the Red Cross sponsored one:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

If everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these soldiers could get to bring up their spirits!

9. A tattoo artist! I have some designs in my head but I simply CANNOT DRAW! I have three tattoos currently, and I'd like to add onto each one of them. I also have two more in mind. But anyone who is versed in tattoo design that would be willing to go back & forth with me to help flesh (ha ha) these out...

10. My Amazon wishlist... used is perfectly fine :)

Just shoot me a private message here for my contact info, or an email at dementia at livejournal dot com :)

Thanks for even looking at my paltry list.... Commence with the merriment!
Followed your husbands video game twitter-account :3
And I will also save the address and send one of my Christmas card to Recovering American Soldier when it nears Christmas :)
I have followed your husbands twitter account and shall suggest it to friends who I know are gamers.

I will also send a card to the address supplied - what a beautiful thought x x
In regards to your #8 - the USPS will NOT deliver mail addressed like that, unfortunately. The best address to use is the Red Cross sponsored one:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Snopes did an article on it here.

And I just want to add that I send cards to the soldiers every year, so that's one ticky on your wishlist! :)
I won't talk to anyone til tomorrow, so I can't say "oh yes, filling this liek mad!" but I'm part of a volunteer group that's been looking to do something for vets and deployed soldiers this year. We've been turned away by a couple groups, so this is bril.

Many many thanks for that address and the snopes.
Hello! We have alot of similar interests! I am a Type O fan as well. I can do #1. I love music...I love promoting good bands..and I will definitely check out their page on facebook!
I've Liked your brothers band on Facebook and I now follow your husband's video game marketing company on Twitter! :)

And I just might have a photo frame for you - is it 11 x 13 centimeters? I've got one that's 11,5x8,4cm on the inside. :)
11 x 13 inches. Most of the autographs we have are on 8 x 10 (in) photos :(

Thanks so much for checking out Venus Vegas and Power Level Marketing though <3
Liked your brothers band on Facebook and followed your husband's video game marketing company on Twitter!

And I am going to save the address and send to the address. ^_^
Okay, when I was done "liking" your brother's band (dude, they are hot...do they need groupies?) I made a facebook status and a tweet about number 8 :)

Hope that helps a little.
I've liked your brother's band, and will send a few cards as well. :D
Thank you!


and yes, I'd have to suffer with girls fawning over my little bro forever LOL... they could use groupies, all right ;)

Can you PM me your adress? I may have something for you, it will honestly depend how much shipping costs. :)
I've liked your brother's band on Facebook and a card for #8 will be going out soon :)
