Christmas Wish List

To aid you in selecting my Christmas gift I've compiled this helpful list of presents I'd like:

- An ancient treasure map, preferably crumpled.

- Detailed plans for a legendary bank heist with blueprint drawings and a motley but charming crew of talented criminals, one of whom will ultimately double-cross us.

- A villain's secret lair carved into the side of a mountain on a remote island. Extra credit for including a tank of hungry, man-eating sharks.

- A talking dog.

- A non-talking cat with a Twitter account.

- A cute mouse who not only talks but cooks delicious meals and sings catchy songs.

- A Blockbuster Video franchise.

- Elvis's greatest hits on cassette tape.

- A cylindrical audio-recording made by Thomas Edison, speaking to his lab assistant: "Theodore! Get your ass in here pronto!"

- A gift-card entitling me to purchase gasoline at 49 cents a gallon so I can pretend it's 1972.

- A time machine to transport me back to 2009 where I can buy Bitcoin at 10 cents a coin.

What's on your wish list?


  1. I like your list. You could probably make a treasure map, and cassettes are in again - did you know? You can probably find that tape!

  2. I would also like a mouse that will cook for me - and sing and chat!


  3. I'm loving your list and with my hubby being an old Elvis fan, I can probably do the cassette tape :-) xxx

  4. I've always thought I wanted a talking dog but then I've had a few really smart ones and I don't think I want to hear what they'd have to say lol

    I'll take anything that cooks for me though!

  5. Omg I am totally adding that "time machine to buy Bitcoin at 10 cents a coin" because that would be GENIUS!

  6. I miss the days of having a Blockbuster store around the corner.

  7. Great Christmas list. The Elvis cassette thing is a lovely idea. Do you have anything to play it on?

    1. Nope. And I don't know who sells them anymore.

  8. It's technically a talking dog: i recommend googling Bunny the Talking dog (and Billi the cat).

    Boyhowdy that gas card though. Sign me up for one those bad boys.

  9. That's some wish list Ally!

    I don't want anything too extravagant myself, just a pair of Christian Louboutin black patent heels.

  10. This list is as smile-inducingly fun and charming as a beloved Christmas TV special.

    Nothing wrong in the slightest wish dreaming and wishing big, my friend. Hopefully Santa will take a a peek at this and bring you at least a couple of the entries you're yearning for this year.

  11. Such an imaginative list!!! Share the mouse with me- please!
    Your treasure map made me smile as my friend Amanda and I used to spend every Saturday morning drawing treasure maps when I was around 7 and she was 4! So much fun!
