All I want is what I... I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share.

Dear Santa Claus,
How have you been? Did you have a nice summer? How is your wife? I have been extra good this year, so I have a long list of presents that I want...Please note the size and color of each item, and send as many as possible. If it seems too complicated, make it easy on yourself: just send money. How about tens and twenties?
-Sally Brown
excerpt from A Charlie Brown Christmas

I like many of you, I hate to sound so wanty... there are so many sites dedicated to lusting after this and that. I totally fall victim to this obsessive favorite-ing and bookmarking of stuff. I loved ESB's ten things to do instead of shopping post. The hoards of gift guides are making me ill lately. I find that too often when I browse for gifts I end up falling for crap that I feel I must have. Goddamn my needy characteristics. It's not like I plan on only giving homemade or charity gifts this year but I will make an effort to be less consumer and brandfocused this season.

I have no choice but to not have a lot to give this year. I hope the people in my life won't mind. I have to get off this damn computer and make some stuff. I appreciated that list, I need to print it off and refer to it often.
