I will update later with my Wednesday & Thursday.. but I really am a sickie. [Wednesday before 6th hour started, I went to the nurse and home.. and then today [Thursday] I stayed home.. I'm only on the computer so I could email 3 teachers about make-up.. one about reading I can do so I'm just behind on the questions about it.. [♥ Hunchback anyways] and then the other 2 about when I make-up quizzes.]
yay I just got an email from Lelm - the one about reading so the more important one! whoo!
I love Lelm! She's awesome. I'm so glad she teaches at Normal now.. instead of West.
SO, this is taken from Meredith.
Make a journal post. The post should contain your list of 10 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 journal, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.
Surf around your friends' list 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.
so, here's my wish list: [notes in bold]
