    ok since you asked, here's my holiday wishlist:

    1. a vegan woman

    2. er, come to think of it, there isn't a 2.







    so if anybody wants to send me one i'll pm you my address. preferably a live one (although i can't afford to be too picky these days).

    thanks.

    I asked for gift certificates for the grocery store so I can indulge and finally buy myself luxurious vegan face cleasnsers, body washes, body lotions....I've been dying to buy these stuff for a year now (since I went vegan) but I was toooooo cheap to dish out the dough for them.
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    I'm making most of the presents I'm giving this year, so I'm telling people that, and that I don't really want any presents - if they insist I'd like a donation made in my name to any charity apart from a medical research one (I know not all do animal research but it makes it less complicated) or a small homemade present. I have too much stuff.

    I said to my dad and husband last year that I'd rather they donated or sponsor instead of buying me a gift. They responded by saying 'that's not a proper gift!'.
    My sister's been asking me what I want this year, she's a vegetarian so maybe she'll be more open-minded.

    Oh LAZ, I hope you get what you want. Your wish is so sweet.
    You tell them that is what you want and if they wish to be proper then get you your ideal gift.

    Best of luck to you.

    I want a cute vegan peacoat, because I got rid of my wool peacoat when I went vegan about a year ago.

    I also want a digital camera. I don't want an expensive one; I just want a decent one.

    I don't want my mom to put candy in my stocking, and say afterwords, "Oh, I forgot you don't eat refined sugar. But I can't take it back, so why don't you just eat it." In fact, I think it would be really sweet if she went to the huge gee dee trouble of buying me vegan candy, which she won't, and I'm not going to ask her. I don't really want any candy, I just think it would be sweet of her to think of it, you know.

    I just want to not go bankrupt from college debts and for my boyfriend's mom to stop hating me just because we live together.

    Wait, and also to be able to visit my friend who moved to Florida.

    i wanted the Mundaka Black Mat (yoga) for my b-day and am really excited becuase my parents got it for me (although they haven't given it to me yet cuz it's not yet my birthday) from my family...i guess i could only ask for books or something like that because i don't want them to get me anything that they may think is "vegan" but isn't really. i also am hoping for the modus mix and other surf films... but really, on my holiday wishlist, as lame as it sounds, is to have a happy holiday season that is filled with cheer and my health (and no relapses), i just want happy times with the family (which may be the biggest thing i can ask for to tell the truth)

    I bought my Bengal Stash for $650. They are just so darn smart and they love water. He often jumps in the bath tub.

    ahh! I don't know anyone else who likes her or even knows of her. she's fantastic. up in my top five of all time, I think. I'm mad that her cd release has been pushed back so far- it was supposed to be out in october. but anyway, awesome that you are a fan, as well.

    Do you know her bloodline? Who was the Bengal? Parent? Grandparent? Great GrandParent?

    I think we got mine for $500 9 years ago or so but we also signed paper saying we wouldn't breed her or we would have to pay more.

    I stick with the humane society for my companions these days. I just feel so damn guilty if I don't.
    But those Bengals sure are beautiful and very speacial. I am also intrigued by the Havana Browns.

    i LOVE my nutritionist, she's an expert for athletes and eds so she's perfect, i hope u can find a perfect fit (although there's no such thing as perfect, lol)! maybe u can get a Y membership (i dunno if there's any around u) cuz they have yoga classes and personal trainers included in the one that i belong to...

    Yarn, yarn, yarn and more yarn. And a cheap digital camera to take pictures of my yarn, vegan food and the skyline view outside of my new apartment. Hmmm. I suppose I better forward this list to Santa.

    new yoga mat, soil for all my indoor plants, maybe a handheld pencil sharpener. that'd be nice for lectures when my pencil breaks mid-sentence. lol. oh yeah, i could also really use a decent Teach yourself japanese book. I'd like to get a heads up before next fall when i start taking japanese. Hopefully i get that for sure!

    But what i really REALLy wish i could have for christmas is a nice vegan boyfriend.
