My Imaginary Christmas List

I’ve asked my parents for some things – mostly useful things, like kitchen towels – so I guess I have to ask Santa for the rest.

Like this cute chandelier from PBTeen, because my aesthetics have yet to evolve to full-fledged Pottery Barn yet.

…or this print from Logophilia to hang in my kitchen.

And of course, I have academic desires as well as homey apartment ones. Somehow, I really think my academic career requires one of these:

from the MargaretandWalter etsy shop. I don’t remember why exactly I wanted one of these so badly, but I can’t really figure out why not, either.

But I really do need a new set of highlighters

and I will settle for nothing less than th 12 dollar pack of Sharpie Accents. Sorry. I have almost bought myself a pack twice now, but am biding my time. I still have a few hanging in there (the rest I used all the way up to their dried out, squeaking death) but I miss the full set. My life REQUIRES a full set.

And my life requires some fancy new notebooks

Maybe a few Clairefontaines?

And even though I know¬† would hate using such a tiny, tiny planner, I can’t get my mind off these

Twelve little daily Moleskine planners, one for each month. Be still, my heart.

But I really did ask my parents for this one:

Because exercise is not fitting so neatly into my life right now, and this might be a nice supplement to all my walking. And it’s fun. And I’ve heard it’s even more fun than the first game!

And of course, there are book. A few from the Amazon wishlist would be nice

The Flavor Bible – Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg

A Book of Luminous Things – Czeslaw Milosz

Mastering the Art of French Cooking – Julia Child

A Tree Grows In Brooklyn – Betty Smith
