It would be easy to send you links of practical presents I want, internet. I could rattle on about material things I desire, but instead, I’ve compiled a list of things that are nearly never going to be achievable but I can still wish away towards! So without further ado, I present:
Lion-Haired Girl’s Doesn’t-Fit-Under-The-Tree-And-May-Be-Impossible-To-Get Christmas Wishlist 2010!
1. A job at Sterling-Cooper Advertising Agency on Madison Avenue, NYC, circa 1962.Sure it’s a fictional place of business and yes, I probably watch Mad Men a little too obsessively often, but I think I could make a real viable addition to the office, that is, once I stopped drooling over how beautiful my coworkers are and how fabulous the Sixties-Era-fashion is.
2. Ukulele Lessons (and/or just general lessons in how to be awesome) from Julia Nunes
Ahh, this girl. Where do I even begin? She is wonderfully talented at ukulele and guitar and sweet harmonies, makes killer videos and yes, internet, may be part of the reason why I first picked up a uke in the first place. If I had to pick a favorite video- this one is pretty marvelous. But please, go see for yourself, I promise you’ll end up a fan.
And while we’re at it,
3. Soul-singing lessons with Adele
She’s barely 21. This is her acoustic with no one enhancing any sort of sound. Homegirl knows what she’s doing. I. GET. CHILLS.
4. A DeLorean
Why? Because the way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?
5. The ever-present wish that MY LIFE WAS, IN FACT, A MUSICAL
I hope you have the merriest Christmastime possible and your heart stays warm (but just metaphorically, because heartburn really ruins Christmastime snacking) all day and night!
