Okay, for fun, they can be under 500 each (because I said so :)).

1. She’s pretty

2. Grab a kazoo. Now, lets’s have a duel, when I count to three

3. Love-ley

4. A knee slapper

5. What about Dorthy?

RARE – SIGNED by TWO Oz Cast Members – Margaret Hamilton & Ray Bolger

VERY RARE – Spectacular DUAL signed OZ photo by Margaret Hamilton as the “Witch” and Ray Bolger as the “Scarecrow”. Acquired directly from the recepient who obtained in person and also became friends with Ms Hamilton in the late 70’s early 80’s. Comes with handwritten provenance stating that he personally had Ms Hamilton and Mr Bolger sign this piece. Rarely do AUTHENTIC Oz dual signed items like this appear on the market, although eBay has the everyday forgeries.

Mr. Bolger signed the photo “To Mike from His Friend The Scarecrow Ray Bolger”. Ms. Hamilton added “as again (?) says in his book – follow your yellow brick road! good luck and watch out for loose bricks! Margaret Hamilton + WWW”.

1. Teddy Roosevelt shirt

2. Nixon Dive watch

3. Mauser C96 diagram shirt

I should also mention that I want everything on your list, jjmah, especially that typewriter, camera, and gun pillow.

Aster's avatar

they have to be under $500 each? So….
a snakeskin purse
a king sized duvet and dust ruffle
a used aluminum bike
I can’t think of anything else at that price! Even the purse might be more than that.

tragiclikebowie's avatar

Honestly, all I want is a professional camera. I could buy one myself, but, I’d rather save my own money. Maybe I’ll think of more stuff later :/

Heavy silk floor length robe.

Some gems of mine set into earrings.

Gold bracelet.

Long sleeved black wrap dress.

Vintage fur coat to replace one stolen from me this year.

It’s hard for me to think of things I want specifically for me rather than the ones I want that have to do with other people too. A sofa, end table, curtains, new bedding, two more dining table chairs, all that stuff is on my mind but more for other people. I want to try and let myself want and feel deserving of a few things just for me.

All I want for Christmas/Chanukah/Yule is to win a big lottery.

Ame_Evil's avatar

1. A chinese cook book
2. A webcam/mic
3. A springform pan
4. New shoes
5. really cannae think of #5, so maybe some shower products. I love how my view of these has changed dramatically over the last 2 years since uni started. When I was younger (like 14) I used to hate getting them thinking they are a wasted present, but now I prefer them as I usually spend my money when I buy them on cheapo stuff.

Jude's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir what tattoo would you get? Or, do you know what you want, yet?

perspicacious's avatar

@Allie I’m guessing that someone is on the east coast. :)

Allie's avatar

@perspicacious Nah, they’re in Hawaii. (kidding)

mrentropy's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Yuh! I figure I might be able to talk them down if I nitpick on the peeling paint and stuff.

TexasDude's avatar

@mrentropy, or the horrible cross decor motif in that first house!

MissAnthrope's avatar

Oh, oh! How could I forget my #5? I want a kayak so bad I can taste it.

Everyone has a Kayak on their car. lol

I already bought us our Christmas present, a dream diamond Hublot watch (a previously owned and relatively modest classic, not the One Million $ Big Bang….I am rich in many ways, but only, {yet thankfully, considering many years of not being employed}, financially secure). It’s “ours” in that Sherry wears it out while I get to marvel at it when it’s in… looks sensational on her! I don’t like to look too far into the future, thus the early Christmas present, and the following list for which I wish timely results:

1. Full recovery of hospitalized family/friends (Sherry’s brother Randell, severe auto accident and Mary, in emergency surgery as I type for a brain aneurysm)
2. Additional peace of mind for Sherry’s long term future happiness.
3. Strength, agility and ability to complete stone carving projects (“nameplate” carvings in alabaster for each of six grandkids for Christmas gifts {#7 already completed in soapstone} and the successful transformation of two small blocks of Italian Carrara marble into figurines of Spenser and Bailey {pet Italian Greyhound and Dachshund; I’ve carved several types of stone (catlinite, steatite, soapstone, alabaster) but never before marble and I have no idea what I’m getting into}).
4. Strength and sufficient health to attend concerts by Arcade Fire and Broken Bells with start times a mere 48 hours apart (and hoping the wheelchair lift in my van, suffering from recent disrepair, has what it takes to operate several more times).

It might be nice to see 2011, but I don’t want to push my luck so will leave my list at four. On second thought, I would like to enjoy another live internet broadcast of the RandomAssRadio show (along with visiting friends in the chat room), so here’s hoping the jonsblondejon residence move was smooth and Jon gets his ass back on the air where it belongs (with Andy, in tow, of course). That is all (well, there is peace on earth, an end to starvation, ............).

See ya..,....Gary/wtf
