Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

In a world where you're all alone and you get sick.

When you're boyfriend flies back to his home and suddenly out of nowhere you start vomiting for 4 hours straight and you have a temperature of 101.5 and your back hurts and you can't even speak on the phone and getting up to get some water takes all of your energy, you realize how much it sucks to be sick and alone.

In a world where I was sick just yesterday, I'd have my boyfriend go on Ravelry for me and tell me what all my friends are up to. I'd have him get me water and make the strawberry jam I was hoping to make yesterday. I would have him scan all my important documents for the fire safe box I just bought and pack for Buffalo and Puerto Rico. I would have him take out the garbage (which I did in my pjs, without glasses and my hair a mess) and had him make me toast. I would have had him connect Netflix to our TV upstairs so I wouldn't have to use my computer that goes dim every 5 minutes. I would have had him make me a bath that never gets cold and then carry me to said warm bath. I would have had him get my wallet, phone, ipod and other various things that were all downstairs when I wanted them to be upstairs with me in the bed. I would've liked my hair combed, my back rubbed and my teeth brushed. In this world where I was alone while I was sick, I carried on just fine but it would've been a heck of a lot easier if he was here.

Let the wishlists begin...

It's that time of year again, where everyone thinks I want a knitting book and just grabs one nillie willie without realizing that it's totally worthless on me. Okay, not totally worthless - I appreciate the sentiment, but don't waste your money yo. That's what wishlists are for. They eliminate wasting money and guessing. Sure, sometimes a surprise is nice. Gift cards are okay, but also totally feel like you just didn't think too much. It's really a lose-lose for you. And with that said, I present to you the things I want in life, for the holidays, my birthday or just any old day.

-If you know me, you know I like natural stuff when it comes to medicine. Therefore I present you with the Medicine Maker's Herb Share. That's the expensive version that I really want, but the Gardener's Share is just as great, I just don't know how long I'll be living at this house to make it worth my while.

-Oh man, how I want to make yogurt every day all the time, day and night. Here's the maker and here's the starter. Both are not even totally necessary, but just make things a little easier in this homemakers life.

-So, awhile back I had a yoga DVD on my wishlist and I stupidly didn't try it out at the library and just went with its 5-star amazon reviews. Big mistake. Dominic's sister got me this present and it turned out to be a dud. I always felt bad about that. Luckily, I did my research this time and came to the conclusion that Shiva Rea is the bomb, and when I want to be yelled at I refer to Jillian Michaels.

-Clothes are so hard because of sizes and the internet, I'll never know if I will actually like what you send. But it's worth a shot, right? I've been eyeing these moccassins (dominic has too), this top or this top I've been trying to get for years or you can just call it a day and get me a giftcard at my favorite little boutique in Ballard.

-Okay, so I was never really into jewelry until recently. I try to wear one little trinket I own every day and I actually feel a little prettier for doing so. This little pin is delightful and this eyeglass holder is just precious. I'd happily include both into my small collection.

-And if you want me to read/knit/color/clean the world, there's Kiplinger's magazine, A Stitch in Time, this coloring book and this diy home cleaning guide.

But that's not all! You can find every other useless, but will make me happy, item on my Amazon wishlist - including everything I've just listed here. You can even sort my list from high to low priority. I spent all day yesterday going through the SEVEN PAGES and decided what was worth being labeled "highest" making your holiday/birthday gift-giving that much easier.

Hooray for gifts. I love you all.
