Hey! A girl can dream, can't she? I'm writing this list for Santa so he knows exactly what I want and will bring it with him tonight when he navigates my chimney. (Psssst... Santa, I didn't put up a tree this year, so just leave these on the fireplace hearth and I'll find 'em.) I've been an awfully good girl this year!
HTC EVO Smartphone
You know I already plan to buy this for myself as a reward for finishing my book. But if I happen to get it early I wouldn't be mad at you. Isn't it beautiful with the huge screen and 4G speed and slick buttons and stuff? I bet you probably want one for yourself too, right?
Adobe Lightroom 3.0
Yep, I'm planning to buy this software package myself too... but I first have to save my pennies. It's a great program to manage and edit my photos quickly and efficiently. Santa, you already know how much I love my previous version of Lightroom, but wouldn't this be so nice under the tree this year? If you wanted to be extra nice, you could also bring me a new camera. I'd love to get my hands on the Nikon D7000.
OK, I admit it! I've already bought these for myself. It's officially the Christmas gift I bought for Pam this year. I found such a great deal on them that I couldn't pass 'em up. But if you bring me another pair, Santa, I can take these ones back to the store and use the money toward something else (like the electric bill, maybe?). I haven't used mine yet, they're still in the box .... just waiting for more snow to fall before I give this new sport a try. (I could also use a new winter coat to go along with my new winter sport - like the Columbia Parka -- my dress coat isn't going to work well with snowshoes.)
Oh boy! My inner geek is showing isn't it? This new pen tablet would be so handy in my new graphic designer adventures, wouldn't it? But this one is pretty pricey and I can't seem to find a "student discount" anywhere on the interwebz so I suspect I'm going to have to pay full price for it. But if you could get Rudolph to make a detour to the Geek Store and pick one of these up for me, I'd be so happy! Imagine all the amazing illustrations and art I could create with this little gem!
Logitech Performance Mouse or the Logitech Trackman Mouse
I can't decide which one I want but I know I definitely want a new mouse to make my graphic designing (and internet surfing) easier and faster. Why don't you just decide which one to wrap up and bring it to me on Christmas Eve -- then I won't have to choose.
Keurig Cafe One-Touch Milk Frother
You know how much I love my Keurig Coffeemaker and you know how much I love lattes. So wouldn't this be absolutely perfect for me? You just add milk to the pitcher, turn it on and in a few minutes you have hot frothed milk - no muss, no fuss! I saw it in Kohl's the other day and instantly fell in love with it. But it's sort of expensive for just making frothy milk.... but if someone super nice (like you, Santa) were to buy it for me, I would be such a happy coffee girl! But until I get this, I'll just use my little Ikea frothing aerolatte thingie. And while we're chatting about Keurig, if you want to fill my stocking with the Van Houtte French Vanilla k-cups, that'd be great.... it's my new favorite flavor of coffee!
I guess that about covers it for this year's wish list. You don't have to bring me everything on the list, Santa. But whatever you can fit down the chimney would be just fine with me.
Thank you! Merry Christmas!
