This year for Christmas I would like a new gelaskin for my new iPad. I like M. C. Escher’s Reptiles one, or there’s a blue robot one I like too. I could also use an InvisiShield Screen protector for it. I would also like iTunes gift cards because apps are fun and iBooks are good too. My iPad could also use another USB to Lightning cable. Maybe you could put that in my stocking.
For other toys, Moleskein is making stationary boxes / kits. I would like the one that is themed with Le Petit Prince, or the 2013 weekly planner with Le Petit Prince. I really want the Lego Winter Village sets or Lego Architecture Big Ben. As for DVDs and whatnot, I would like the DVDs of This American Life TV show or the live show called “Invisible Made Visible”, Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson, Brave BluRay & DVD combo pack, Seasons 3 & 4 of The IT Crowd, or The Mission.
For books & music, I would like That Eternal Day by Cantus, or Imagine: How Creativity Works, by Jonah Lehrer, anything by David Rakoff (I don’t have anything he wrote), Cockeyed by Ryan Knighton or Stitch New York by Lauren Farrell. I also need a new winter hat. I would like an Oscar the Grouch one, or gray/red/black, preferably with ear flaps. I could use a vent mounted universal phone holder.
Heck, as long as we’re talking, Santa, I need a new car. I think I want a Prius, the wagon one. Used would be ok.
That’s all ephemeral though, you know. Here’s the important part, Santa. I really want to wake up Christmas morning to find these things under my tree so I could share them:
- I want something to stop things like the Sandy Hook school shootings and for all children to feel safe in their schools.
- I want all people the world over to be free, have shelter, enough food, safe water and access to good medical treatment.
- I want more love, acceptance and kindness for everyone the world over, regardless of color, religious beliefs, gender or orientation (sexual or otherwise).
- Most of all, I want every human to wake up Christmas Day and know that we only have one life, one planet and one race – the human one, so we better get to working together.
If you can’t bring those things, Santa, can you please bring me the will, drive and strength to work for those things in the world myself?
Finally, I would also like a hypoallergenic kitten and I wouldn’t say no to a goat. Thanks for all your hard work in years past. I hope you have a nice Christmas, I’ll leave cookies and warm cider out for you.
