The Spin Cycle- Dear Santa

This week's Spin Cycle is supposed to be our letter to Santa. Or about a letter to Santa. I don't remember which, and frankly, I'm to damn lazy to go re-read the assignment. I'm pretty sure Sprite's Keeper will take either as long as I make her chuckle (and she'll give me an "A" if I can get her to snort coffee out her nose...)

To really get in the mood, you should go out and find Sean Morey's song "Dear Santa". I've tried to put a link here, but it just ain't happening for some reason. Here's the link to his site, though. It's funny and worth a few minutes. Trust me.

Dear Santa,

I know I should wish for "world peace" or something like that, but quite frankly, I'm not in the mood this year. I've made my holiday donations, both at work and at church. Now how's about some loving for the Mama Badger? If people want world peace, they should just put down their guns. If they don't want to do that, I don't see how wasting my Christmas wish on them is going to help.

I would like a PS2. Yeah, I know. PB wants a Wii. The whole family could play the Wii. But all I want (and I've wanted it since 9th grade- remember that?) is a little hand held game thingy I can play Tetris on. By myself. Anywhere I want. Not so much to ask right?

I would also like those new Reebock sneakers that make your butt firm while you walk (Easy Tone?) They seem to suggest no "extra" exercise is required. If that's true, maybe get yourself a pair, too. I'm just saying. Oh, in grey, if they have them.

A Kindle, or some other type of personal reader would be nice. Could you please do the research on this one? PB offered to get me one, but I'm not sure which one I want. With all the advertising wars going on, who can tell which one will carry my WSJ by next year. If you can figure it out and get me the appropriate reader, that would be great.

If you could manage a day at the spa with the rest of this stuff, that would be nice. You know, the one with the message, the manicure ,the pedicure, a nice haircut and some lunch? Do you think Mrs. Claus would be willing to sit for the boys that day, too?

That's it this year. I should probably ask for a new car, but I'm really not ready to deal with that one yet. Next year, ok?


Mama Badger

ps- please excuse the finger prints all over your cookies. LG wanted to "help".

You're lucky I'm drinking water. :-)
My mom wants one of those Kindles too. I'm still not sure since nothing beats cracking a spine.. Although it would save me a buttload on money, but then, when will the library go on line? No late fees, free downloads, rock on! You're linked!

I'm with Sprite I love to crack open a book!! PS2 sounds good but you know as soon as you sit down to play it... "Whatcha doing? Can I play?" Great letter and Santa I sure could use a pair of those shoes too, :o)

PS did you get your Mickey's Twice Upon a Merry Christmas?

A day at the spa; I think you deserve that big time. And you could bring the Kindle with you. That's what I think they're great for, reading on the go and travel. Who wants to bring 5 books on vacation? but that's what I end up doing. Otherwise, I'm with Jen and Kirsty, love holding a book.

That cracks me up. Love the part about world peace! And the one with the Kindle...have Santa do the research. that's perfect.

I agree with Sprite the book in my hand! But it would be cool to have one....

Okay, this made me laugh - everyone made some mention of world peace this year, as if we were afraid the PC police would come arrest us if we didn't.

As for the gaming systems, you want a PSP, not a PS2. A PS2 is a console game (and an out-of-date one, at that); the PSP is the handheld. However, having said that, you can get a Nintendo DS much more cheaply than a PSP - and you CAN get Tetris (or electronic crack, as Oldest Son calls it) for the DS.

Oh, and the Wii is a LOT of fun.

Have I mentioned my sons are both "serious" gamers? I know FAR MORE about this crap than I ever wanted to.

Ah, a day at the spa. That sounds amazing.
