This is considerably later than I normally do this, I don't really have an excuse tbh, but it's definitely that time again!

If you want a holiday card from yours truly, just leave your address in the comments! They're screened as usual. :)

And if you want to send ME a card for some reason, then let me know and I'll give you my new address!

STEP ONE
✫ Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 unlimited 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, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.


STEP TWO
✫ Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

✫ If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

✫ You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

✫ There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

if you wish upon a star... )

Okay! With the results of the last poll, and some personal thoughts, I've decided to go with Clarice, [livejournal.com profile] little_ribbon. :D Now hopefully you can get her before she's all gone! ;_;

And I'm saying this here because I'm not going to be on AIM/MSN for... awhile. xD For serious, this time. It depends on how well I manage my time, so wish me good luck, yeah? Haha. If all else fails, I'll be back on Wednesday. ♥ And no, this is NOT an LJ hiatus; like I could ever do that successfully, lol.

First, a hilarious meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist:

Go to the Wikipedia home page and click random article. That is your band's name.
Click random article again; that is your album name.
Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.


Ashland, California
by Behice Boran

01. Minnesota Muskies
02. Beli Potok
03. Buddy Joe Hooker
04. WAFN-FM
05. Consistory
06. Okello
07. Anteojito y Antifaz, mil intentos y un invento
08. Ranga
09. Nephilengys cruentata (this is a fucking spider! *shivers*)
10. 1981 CART World Series Season
11. Peng!
12. Gregson Centre
13. Giovanni Gentile (it took me so long to say his name right. I suck at Italian. xD)
14. Office of eDiplomacy
15. Camille Neviere (this model is so pretty :D)

That wasn't as funny as it should be. :( Ah well.

And now, for the hardest decision in my life: [livejournal.com profile] little_ribbon, the wonderful girl she is, is going to buy me a plushie from Build a Bear Workshop for Christmas. The only problem? I can't choose between two, and it's killing me. So, I implore you to vote, and help me make a decision. :D

I'm done with my applications to CSU Long Beach and UC Santa Cruz. :) I've submitted them both, so yay! Just have to wait now. lol. Though I still have another application to work on - the one to study abroad in Aix-en-Provence next year. I'm going to have a haaard decision to make if I get into that program too... xD;

But to celebrate, it's time to... share my wishlist? xD [livejournal.com profile] little_ribbon's been bugging me about it FOREVER, so I had to do it soon! Haha.

STEP ONE
Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ 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 or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

Christmas/Hanukkah/Whatever is coming up. I haven't sent out the cards yet, so you can still request a card if you want one. :D

However, I've decided that cards aren't enough! Taking a page from [livejournal.com profile] kameko_87's book, I present:

Request a Drabble for the Holidays!

Anyone reading this - and I mean anyone, since I'm making this public - can request a drabble from me, as long as it's from one of my fandoms. If you're unsure what those are, check out my interests. :) Be as general or specific as you like.

Don't expect any more than 500 words, unless I'm really inspired or something. xD; A few of you can demand a full-fledged fic from me, though. I'm not going to say who, as that's kinda unfair, but you should know who you are.

I promise to get them all written by December 25. That's a pretty tall order, especially with finals soon... which is why I'm starting this now. xD

So, request away! :D
