It's that time of year again...

Okay Santa, I've been a very good girl again this year. You didn't do so hot on last year's wishlist (Thanks to my sister Laurie, the first three items can be crossed off the list...), but maybe you'll do better this time around.

This year, the list is a bit more practical (although I'm still open to finding Clive Owen underneath the Christmas tree...) and includes some items from last year's list that I'm still jonesing for.

1. I still need a good digital camera. I've been close to just buying one for myself, but I freeze when it comes to pulling the trigger on the purchase. Basically I want an idiot-proof point-and-shoot camera. Quick shutter speed, image stabilization, optical viewfinder, ability to take pictures in bright daylight or at night, pocket-sized and very affordable.

Anyone have any suggestions?

2. To accommodate my LOST obsession, seasons 1-3 on DVD. I wouldn't mind season 4 as well, but I'm especially wanting to revisit the first couple of seasons to see what I might have missed the first time around.

3. The other day the light bulb in my bathroom blew out. The only chair I have to stand on is my computer chair. Which swivels. Ever tried to change a light bulb while standing on a swivel chair? It's a challenge. This mini step ladder with project tray would be a godsend.

4. Somehow I've survived for years without owning my own fax/printer. It would make life a lot easier to have one around.

5. One of these draft dodgers thingamobs would be great. Yeah, it doesn't get all that cold in SoCal. Which is why buildings here generally aren't insulated. It doesn't necessarily have to be a cow.

Although the cow is kinda cute.

And as far as last year's list goes, the iPod speakers, Calvin and Hobbes collection and even the vaccuum cleaner are still up for grabs.

And hey--as long as we're wishlisting here, I'll take that guest house, functioning pancreas and world peace, too.


  1. Hi Stella,

    If you don't already have it, I'd recommend the complete series of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". It's on sale on Amazon for $70. A steal. Also a good digital camera is the Canon SD750. I love mine. Here's hoping Santa's listening.


  2. I've heard good things about Canon and was this close to buying the A590.
