What I Want for Christmas

Look what happens when you get old...your Christmas list vastly changes:

* new speakers for my car
* fix my GPS or get me a new one before I punch out the one that doesn't seem to work anymore
* running shoes
* cool bumper stickers
* The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
* running socks
* running pants
* sports bras
* make up/nail polish as stocking stuffers


  1. Some of the same things are on my list. Our GPS has been on the fritz, too. The battery doesn't hold a charge at all (which is extra annoying when the battery charger doesn't stay in the power outlet), the touch screen is completely unreliable - sometimes it works perfectly, sometimes you have to touch above what you really want (too bad if you want to touch a menu item at the top of the screen), and sometimes it just locks up for no reason. Oh, and the maps are like 3 or 4 years out of date...not to mention the places like stores and restaurants. I have wanted to throw that thing out of the window many times lately!

  2. The gps thing is awful. I have an integrated one that I got a few years ago. I loved it. It plays my iPod, satellite radio, etc. The gps was a godsend to me. And then it just started acting up: updating every second with a different route, not updating at all, not speaking to me. I pissed it off and now she disses me. And I have never felt violent towards anything but now, I do want to just pull it out and throw it out of the window too.

  3. Saw a funny bumper sticker: "Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity" he he

  4. Love it! Have you seen my new one? "Why are tea bags always white?"

  5. One of the best bumper sticker's I've seen read "Republicans for Voldemort." I laughed so hard.
    Five years ago or so, my sister got a hold of an L.L. Bean catalogue. Her list ended up at about 200 items.
    This mom got "mad" at me for not having enough items. Then we went shopping for clothes and she regretted it. HA.
