This is so big I don't know how I'm going to be able to lick it and still get my chores done. Laura Ingalls Wilder's wish list on Mr. Amazon's Mercantile.
From her twitter feed

Oh goood night this is funny.

Big Laura fan here. I often think of the depictions of these really simple Christmases in her books. Like the one where they went to church and got charity presents, and Laura got a brown cloak with red trim and red mittens. Or when Pa got stranded in the big blizzard with their Christmas presents, and survived by holing up in a snow cave and eating all the oyster crackers and horehound candy.

Happy as I am to have so many comforts of modern first-world life, there is something amazing about the clear, powerful memory of such small things received with such great appreciation.

Mary wants sage stuffing. I want onion stuffing. Let the arm-wrestling begin!

I totally remember this. I like both onion AND sage in my stuffing!

I was amused to see Amazon suggest Reindeer Pooper Candy Dispenser at the bottom of her list.

Also, after seeing her respond to John Hodgman's Twitter, I started looking through his feed and holy crap, does he just have a Twitter chip hooked directly to his brain or something?
