The other day I noticed that my friend Curly Wurly Gurly has a cool new page over at her blog called (something like) Books on my Nightstand. And so I clicked it and looked at all the books on her nightstand, things she had recently read and enjoyed. And I thought that was a really nice thing to share. People (including yours truly) really should be reading more often instead of sitting in front of their computers reading other people’s blogs – but wait! That IS READING! Well, gee, then I guess I am reading plenty.
So I decided to make a new page for people to visit who want to know me better. I thought a fun way to do this would be to share with everyone stuff I would like to have. You see, I don’t have a lot of extra money, and I don’t buy much for myself. But before you start to cry because that is so sad, please know that I do not feel deprived. Oh NO! Because YOU can buy these things for me, and then send them to me. And isn’t it always better to give than to receive? at least in your case? And also, isn’t it always fun to get a gift? It is for me! I LOVE PRESENTS!!! YAY!!!
So now I am going to talk about some of the stuff I would like to have.
1. I would like an attractive swim cap.
My family & I swim once a week at a local community pool. Since my hair is longer than shoulder length, I have to don a swim cap. The first week I didn’t have one, so I had to borrow a loaner from the Lost & Found. After squeezing it onto my head and having my husband tease me about cooties, I looked like this:
The next week I bought my own. But as luck would have it, it’s too big and every time I go underwater it threatens to float away. I want to keep swimming but this cap thing is too much. Please, won’t you buy me a better looking swim cap and do us ALL a favor?
2. I would also like this book:
I am not a dummie per se, but I am a dummie when it comes to knitting, so I think this would be a great book for me. My husband bought me a “Wool Scarf Kit” for Christmas, he bought it at a children’s toy store and it says age 8 and up on the bag. It came with hokey fat plastic needles and yarn and everything. but I cannot figure out the directions to save my life. I don’t even know what a slip knot is and it doesn’t even try to explain. I looked online and am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I think a book intended for the truly stupid could save my life when it comes to knitting, so won’t you please buy this for me. I would like to knit myself a nice warm scarf.
3. I would like this toy:
It is not really truly for ME, but it is for my bird, who thinks I am her best toy, so it is intended to act as my sit-in. I would like a little time off from the constant chewing and pecking, so if you would be so kind as to buy Beetle Man for my bird, perhaps the open wound on my right ear will finally heal.
So that’s about it for now. You can see by my choices I am not a very materialistic person and I hope that works in my favor. I will keep adding more stuff as I think of it. Also, I will delete stuff as you buy it and send it to me. That is only courtesy to the next person who really shouldn’t have to shell out money for a swim cap when you’ve already sent me one. And I only need one. really.
