“Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I’ve been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you’d check off my Christmas list”
Okay, I don’t think I’ve been all that good (a girls gotta have some fun!) but I don’t think that my particular Santa will mind all that much . . .
Now, if you’re anything like me, you’ve been racing around figuring out what to get for other people and maybe neglected to think about what you might get from the man in the snazzy red suit.
For me, the ultimate gift would be this guy, Alex O’Loughlin, under the tree . . . but I think I need to be a much better girl next year! ; )
So, this is a list of a few things I would love to see – and might actually find – under the tree.
I’m a huge Vera Bradley bag fan and have carried nothing else for 20 years – yep, since I was two years old! Since I never know when the writing bug will strike, I carry my net book, Lil’ Red, with me everywhere. I think I would look really stylish with this bag to carry it and all of its accessories in . . .
I also want a massage. Not a quick head a shoulders massage in one of those tacky chairs at the mall. No sireeee . . . I want a one and one half hour massage on a table with piped in sperm whale mating call music recorded by Enya. I want the hot stone therapy as well . . .I want my husband to have to come and get me because I’m incapable of driving myself home.
And, if I’m aiming for the box seats, I want a multi-book, huge advance book deal with Nora Ephron begging to make the movies. And, of course, Alex O’Loughlin would want to star in them and I’d have to be on set everyday . . .
Okay, now that I’ve spilled the secrets only known by Mr. Claus . . . tell me what you whispered in his ear . . .

I really, really want another bookshelf from IKEA. And my wedding rings welded together. And to drink all the eggnog I want without gaining any weight or getting sick. 🙂
Granted! I talked to the big guy and you are in like Flynn! : )
I’m whispering that Robin Mermaid really needs to get this wish cause in my opinion, she’s been a pretty damn good girl…
Aww shucks, Carlene . . . thanks! I know you’ve been good!
Okay, so I thought about it all day and I’ve decided I’d like Snoop Dog to write a rap song about me and then sing it to me under the mistletoe!
May I share you wish for a honkin’ big book deal? I wouldn’t mind the sable, either… and Alex… and Vera… sheesh I’ll take it all. Oh and let’s not forget a miracle weight loss creme. No… I’m not at all greedy. ;-D
Joan – I think you would look fab in a sable . . . on the back cover of the first in your mutli-book deal!
I want more inspiration for getting my work done! That’s it. And better ideas. Like the one for tomorrow’s post that this one just gave me…
Besides wanting to lose 10 pounds, getting a publishing contract and having my apartment building allow dogs so I can get a puppy…
I didn’t really ask for much this year. I want an aerobic step-up thing. I use one at the gym and this might help me with the whole wanting to lose 10 pounds thing.
Fun post! 😉
Robin, I don’t get much for Christmas. Over five years ago, both my and my husband’s families decided to give each other the gift of time spent together. So every year, we give each other checks to go into a vacation fund, and every five years, we take a family vacation together using money from the fund. Our first vacation was last year, and we had a blast. Plus, the only Xmas shopping any of us has to do is for the kids, which cuts down on the headaches.
