Dear Santa Claus

For Christmas I would like just three things. I am asking you because you are my last hope [with the economy being slow like it is, and Mr. Coleman being employed in the slowest of slow markets right now]. I feel great just knowing that these are the things I would purchase for myself had that letter from the Publishers Clearing House not been a hoax. Ahem. 

First Thing: This personal embosser. I can already see my own personal library growing to gigantic proportions, and it would just be lovely to have a clear, crisp, embossed emblem on each title page of every book.

Next Thing: These awesome boots by Kenneth Cole Reaction. They are quite beautiful, and since I have moved to Utah [think 1995] I have told myself every winter that this would be the winter I will splurge and buy myself a great pair of boots. Well guess what? The most I have spent on a pair of shoes since 1995 is [well, let's just exclude my running shoes, because that really throws off the numbers] $50. So, I think I deserve these.

And finally, I would really love a new camera, but not just any camera. I want this one. The new Canon XSI, and I'll also need a couple of lenses, if you don't mind. My Canon, while I love it dearly, has just not been the same since it spent the day in a plastic bag swimming in warm, flat root beer. You can't really blame it, but still, a woman with an eye for beautiful things needs a nice camera. So...

Thanks so much in advance and have a very Merry Christmas.


  1. Ha.

    Ha, as in "you're funny" not ha as in a sarcastic good luck with your wishes. :)

    If I were dishonest I'd steal Santa's identity and grant you your 3 wishes.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. You better send me the link to that embosser:).

  3. Those are great boots! I wish Santa were getting me a few things this year, too. Sadly, I don't think many of my Christmas dreams will come true on the $30 dollar budget that is covering my gifts this year. Stupid economy! It's a good thing that the best gifts are the memories we make!
