A Printer That Doesn’t Suck. Is this an impossible task? Maybe. I like Harry’s little $50 HP, but it’s in the basement so it’s sometimes hard to get to. Maybe I should just get his exact model. Good idea Kelsey.
A Million Books. Top titles include The Magicians, The Night Circus, Seriously…I’m Kidding, When She Woke, The Last Werewolf, and Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me?
The Kindle Fire. Usually I don’t fall for the latest and greatest tech device (especially not first editions), but I have a feeling that this one will be great. And at $199, no less. It’s like the poor man’s iPad. Take that, Apple!
Letterpress Stationary. My aunt gave me a set of letterpress stationary about 5 years ago, and I have been clutching tightly to it ever since. I don’t want to use it, I just want to rub my fingers over the depressed paper. So I’m thinking more nice letterpress stationary will help me ease into actually using stationary for correspondence, not just for comfort. Pair these with some fancy custom mailing labels, and I will be the next Emily Post. Well, I’m not classy enough to be Emily Post, so maybe Emily Dickinson instead? Minus the whole loner thing. (Stationary from Paper Source, king of high-quality stationery)
Money. OK, I know that sounds crazy, but what if I set up a pretty and quaint “donate to my college loans” website? Or I’ll just give you my Sallie Mae login and you can send her a few bucks on my behalf? About 40% of my income goes towards paying down my debt. No, that’s not because I have to, it’s because I want to. I want to stop owing people money. I don’t want to be part of the debt mob anymore. I don’t want to owe any credit cards a favor.
What are you wishing for for Christmas? Is it too early to think about Christmas?
