lfr - I was trying to come up with a witty reference to the Hitachi Magic Wand.... but couldn't work it into a joke. Doh.
I don't really want for anything. I guess just having had my birthday on Sunday helps with that. I got some of the most thoughtful presents ever. A picnic basket from my little sis - which was a lifelong dream of mine, and from my mother a ticket to the opera last night. Which was on my Dad's birthday. In row K - (the 11th letter of the alphabet). We have dedicated K25 (25/11- his birthday) to him, and I was seated as close as possible to his seat. I left a rose and a card there for him. So felt like I got to spend time with him on the day. As soon as I got into my seat I started sobbing. At least the opera was a tragedy, right?
So Christmas will be spent with my aunt in QLD, and I don't need anything whatsoever.
I haven't asked my partner for this because it'd be too expensive, but my Xmas dream gift would be all five of New Order's albums from the 80s that have just been remastered and reissued and have extra discs with their singles and I'm sure sound really awesome.
My husband and I don't exchange elaborate gifts at Christmas, but I want many things! A few that come to mind: Roomba, Soomba, Estee Lauder Holiday Blockbuster! (I always used to get this. I want it again for old times' sake), a designer handbag, jewelry, a MacBook.
Thanks By the Grace of God! I should add that I'm not particularly unhappy, just that I'm not happy. However, I will accept copious whuffles for me missing my Moondog. He was the best thing that's happened to me in my entire life, and I'm not convinced that I deserved him. He certainly got the short end of the stick, but he was always faithful, and a wonderful friend to the end. I miss him desperately.
All I want is some time so that I can give my baby girl my complete and undivided attention. She's been communicating on a three year old level that she's feeling neglected recently. (That is, breaking stuff, doing things she knows not to, and even slapping me) One whole day of nothing but playing princess/castle, puzzles, fingerpaints and whatever else comes to her mind will probably be all that she wants for christmas, and I don't want to think of food in the oven, cars that need re-parking, servers that need checking, garbage that needs taking out or anything else that isn't my babygirl for an entire day.
