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!
Thank you!


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