Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] havocthecat:

* Make a post (public, friends/access locked, filtered, whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

* If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

* Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

1. This is really sad, but my own Samsonite carry-on suitcase thingy so I can stop using my roommate's briefcase to take to court.

2. DVD's of Huff, for Paget's boobs.

3. To get over my work crush and/or get my work crush drunk enough so that I can confess my feelings to her, be completely appalled, and never speak of it again.

4. I really want some really fucking dirty bareback fic where the characters are fucking to make a baby. (Ideally, it would be THE fucking dirty bareback fic where Rossi deliberately tries to knock Prentiss up, because that means I wouldn't have to write it.) (Sorry for making all of you guys recoil, my lesbian friends.)

5. The "lost" episodes of Thrilling Adventure Hour that they took off iTunes before I had a chance to download them.

6. Weird maps that I can post over my desk at work and pretend I'm heading somewhere.

7. The Cone, though it will only cause me to injure myself in weird ways YET AGAIN. (NSFW)

8. This one doesn't even make sense, but about 5 years ago I read this short story about this band of pirates who would take over other ships in the ocean and force the people on the ships to perform Greek tragedies and everyone ended up dead. I have no recollection of the author or the title, and it was a CHILDREN'S STORY, and I swear it is real because I scanned a copy of it and saved it onto my old computer in Canada except now I can't find it anywhere. SO if anyone has ANY idea what the fuck I'm talking about and can tell me which book it's from, please let me know.

9. Leave me feedback on any one of my stories! You can find them either under the tags in my side bar, or at AO3.

10. A podfic of any one of my fics (see above). [livejournal.com profile] nike_ravus did one a couple years ago, and it was awesome.

11. This is just wishful thinking, but for all my cases to either get settled or thrown out so I don't have to deal with this fucking bullshit, I swear to god.

If anyone wants to send me anything, PM me and I'll give you my address. No dead animals please, or severed heads.

8. I will try and find the title of this book. Was it published in Canada or HK? Do you remember the name of any character?

It's American, actually. I do not remember the name of any characters, only that it was written in first person and is a short story in a collection of short story geared for 12 or 13 year olds, IIRC. I think the editor of the collection is James Howe, of the Bunnicula fame, but I can't be sure.

Thanks, I hope you find it! You'll like it too, I bet!

Are all the stories in the collection about pirates?

It's not a collection about pirates, I don't think. I can't remember what any of the other stories were about though. Just the angst of being a tween or something. There might've also been a short story about this boy whose dad died and he carried his dad's ashes in his backpack and finally scattered them at a golf course. It's really weird because I remember WHERE I was when I read this book (in a certain Chinese restaurant in Vancovuer) but I cannot for the life of me remember what it's called.

Still crawling my way out of my social anxiety hole. You still at the address in HK?

Yep, I'll be there until the day I die. Unless the building collapses first, which could totally happen.

PM me yours again (I am shit at remembering people's addresses) and I will send you a delayed Christmas/on time birthday card. Or if I fail to, an early CNY card?

5. I'll doublecheck but I think I've managed to download all of them from itunes except for #1, so if you could upload that, I would give you my firstborn child. You can name her after Sadie Parker Nickelhouse Doyle.

10. It's okay, I have an accent too. I say "sorry" like a Canadian.
