I Have Writer's Block: Here is my Christmas List

I was thinking of posting something about how I love Christmas, but how over the last 15 years or so they have started so early that it wears me down, blah blah blah. I will probably get to this point at a later date, after I hear the phrase "puhhh-rumpa-pum-pum" for the 492nd time.

For now, I'm going to get into the holiday spirit, in an albeit selfish way. I'm putting out my Christmas list. Here goes:

    Things I need:
  • button up shirts (the kind you would wear with a tie), 16 1/2, thin vertical stripes are good, i'm about 32/33 right now
  • sweaters, but thin ones, not the bulky kind ... something i could wear under a jacket
  • everyone knows i look good in blue
  • fleeces and/or winter vests (i'm a Large)
  • a pair of nice, trendy sneakers (i wear a 12) .. they can be cheap
  • Rogaine
  • bookshelves that you can nail to a wall
  • a coffee maker (simple, doesn't have to be all fancypants)
  • some fancy pants
  • something that can go up on a wall, but not like a poster. something that could go in a living room.
  • a handgun and a bottle of pills
  • gift cards to just about anywhere
  • cookbooks (with simple recipes, nothing i wouldn't eat in it)
  • books are always good; you guys know what kind of thing i like (football, movies, beer)
  • a pint glass
  • my iPod to be fixed
  • (fill in the blank)

    Things I don't need:
  • knick-knacks
  • things that take up surface area or are for decoration only
  • tools ... i have plenty
  • your lip, sassymouth

Actually I'm a pretty simple boy. I don't need much this year. There's only really one gift I want and Santa can't bring it. Who knows, maybe the Easter Bunny will.

I miss you all, my friends. And in case I don't get another chance to talk to you until then, sincerely, have a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays. 2007 is right around the corner and it could be a very exciting year. I am looking forward with excited apprehension, or maybe it's apprehensive excitement. The snows will thaw, the sun will come back out, and we will all find that pot of gold we've been looking for. I can feel it. After all, '07 is my lucky number.

Let's make it happen.

Bro - I got you covered for the gun and pills...a large bottle.

Thank you Paul for not using the "C" word on my blog. Hi mom and dad.

And in the meadow we can build a snowman and pretend that he's a circus clown.
We'll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman until the other kiddies knock him down...Sons of bitches!

I saw this on your list of things you want and I laughed:
bookshelves that you can nail to a wall

I saw this and I laughed again:
books are always good;

I was going to comment so I could razz you about your books, but
then I saw this under things you don't need and realized I probably shouldn't comment:
your lip, sassymouth

Then I commented anyway. Partly because you know you love my lip (okay maybe not), but mostly because I also wanted to say that I miss you, cupcake!
