Dear Santa, I Need...

a 2-day getaway to anywhere

a winter coat

a good cookie sheet

a shelf sound system

a cruise to Alaska

a drill and drill-bits specifically for plaster walls

a sincere romantic hug

a friend to help lay the pad and area rug in the living room

a trip to IKEA for more storage options

a deep, romantic kiss

a Christmas connection with old friends

a lobster dinner - or, maybe two

a complete end to the ugliness of my previous life

a way back to volunteering and helping others

a visit with my best friend who is fighting cancer right now

a listening/counseling opportunity to help GLBT youth at risk

a few friends to understand that while I'm not on their chosen road, I am not lost

a trip to Holland one last time

a cell phone with  querty keyboard to fast-text on work related issues

a trip to New Orleans to visit my sister and a few old friends

a flannel sheet set for these cold winter nights

No iPads, iPods, or the latest electronic gizmos. 

Is that too much to ask for these days?

And so it goes.


  1. I hope Santa gives you your every wish....especially that trip to NOLA. ;)

    I'm also on a quest for a really good cookie sheet. Let me know if you get one.

  2. Two things not on this list, but another, are on its way to you. bhappy holidays!

    Hope to meet you when you come to Holland.

  3. @Charlotte: I will certainly fill you in on any treasure I find in my search.
    Everything was lost thanks to the levees during Katrina, but my sister is a tough Cajun and returned after 8 harrowing months in Houston. I'd like to see her in person once more before one of us buys the farm.

    @Peter: Two things missing? What? Aside from lusting after Dutch Licorice and a certain cheese I remember, I am at a loss.

    I have a notice from the post office that something is waiting for me. Now I know why...

    My friend, I will likely pick your brain for the best place (B&B?) to stay so that we can enjoy your city together as often as you like.

    May all these things come to pass.

    Thanks for the visits and comments.
