We're coming into the home stretch kids. Time to buy, buy, buy before you board those buses and planes for your holiday homecomings. I have one more roundup of awesome stuff to spend the rest of your cash on. These are the things that I'm praying go on after-Christmas firesale, so I can blow my dough and head into 2010 all fancy-style.
I judge books by their covers. And this has an awesome one. Alas, it's out of print and only available used. Must be snatched up before it goes to that great publishing house in the sky ($59.43).
It's funny, because I do, indeed, take the biscuit. I would like to peruse my pretty Africa book, while sipping hazelnut coffee out of this baby. And then a plate of Arcade biscuits and gravy would be magically teleported from Memphis and I could die a happy person. Help my dream come true ($38 for the mug, teleportation extra).
I am a firm believer in the maxim that the best gifts are those that you'd never buy yourself. Like, say, graphic printed stirrup woolen thigh-highs...for $110. They're pricey but they're amazing, and how great would they look when I'm all cozy with my biscuit mug and my teleported Arcade breakfast and Elvis shows up to croon a little "In the Ghetto," while I contemplate my dire financial straits? I mean, a girl's gotta look her best in a situation like that.
So after Elvis and I finish breakfast, he invites his friend Dolly, who arrives in her magical butterfly tourbus to pour me a cup of ambition. We sit around and customize these necklaces ($85) with hot pink thread and then do a dance number with lots of hair flips and jazz hands.
Ok, ok. If I'm not gonna have Dolly and The King to guide me through the stormy months ahead, I'll have to stay calm and rely on myself. TCB and all that business. I think one of these yoga mats would help me keep things in perspective ($45).
What do you think kids? What's left of your holiday wishlists? Hmmm???
