Thursday Thirteen Version 3.0

Thirteen Things I Could Go For Right Now

1.... Cookie Dough. Thanks to Robin's latest TT featuring cookies, I have cookie goodness in my house. She shares my opinion that they're far better raw and that chocolate chip is by far the best flavor. So today, while food shopping, I grabbed a batch of cookie dough just so that I could eat it raw in her honor. As soon as I finish this entry, I'm devouring it.

2.....Starbucks, but that's not just a current longing. That's all the time

3.....Rum and coke. See #2

4.....Cute kid shoes. I'm hopelessly addicted to shoes (Did that inspire anyone else to start humming a song from Greece or am I alone here?). I am not, however, a big fan of the prices on some of those oh so fabulously adorable children's shoes. And so, I'm left to oogle from afar.

5.....Gift cards for stores that I love, but where I never spend money (see #4).

6.....Sleep. I haven't been getting nearly enough of it lately and that's kicking my butt.

7.....A week long vacation for me and some friends. A few of my friends are going through difficult times right now. I would love nothing more than to whisk them off to some WARM exotic location where we could lounge around on a HOT beach sipping drinks and being our usual odd selves and laughing until we spit our drinks out our noses.

8....Cute hair. I got mine chopped a few weeks ago, but it turned out more middle-age and far less artsy than I was hoping. I'm dying to get it fixed.

9.....A chainsaw. We don't currently own one, but we need one to clean up all the tree limbs strewn across the mess that was once our back yard after that oh so lovely storm.

10.....My own personal post office. I have late Chanukah and early Xmas gifts that must go out to family and friends. I do NOT however, enjoy the idea of standing in long lines while precariously balancing boxes and trying to herd all of the wee ones who will undoubtedly wander in front of someone carrying a huge box and the kids will therefore either be trampled or will cause said person to stumble and fall possibly breaking a bone or two. You only think I'm exaggerating. It would be so lovely to saunter into my own private post office where I was the only customer and where they would fall all over themselves to help me in any way they could. And they would never ever lose packages. They would also be open 24 hours 7 days a week and would never ever close for any reason.

11.....Starbucks. I'm not being redundant. One can never have too many Peppermint Mocha Frappacinos.

12.....Several extra hours in the day.

13.....A self-cleaning house and self-cooking oven/stove. Then again, if I had those, #12 would probably be irrelevant.

Marina said...

These all sound great... especially the vacation one!

Here's mine:

Good luck with the backyard fix! We've a huge mess in ours, too, but not due to any storm.

Tina K said...

I could go for a warm vacation, cute hair, and of course shoes.

my TT:

I could use more sleep too. Happy TT.

LibAnn said...

My own personal post office, yes! Wouldn't that be wonderful? Nice TT.

You can read mine here.

Rum and coke. Mmmmm. I sympathize with you on the hair. I had a sort of edgy haircut that had grown out a bit, and my hairdresser went too far in the opposite direction. But at least she wasn't like the previous one who kept telling me that a woman at my time of life needed hair suitable to...her time of life. Urgh.

Mmmm... cookie dough... mmmm...

Sorry, got distracted for a minute there LOL.

If you find a way to get those extra hours of sleep let me know, would ya?

Sassy Lucy said...

Hmmmm I could go for Starbucks too, Caramel Apple for me, or the Peppermint.

I'm making rounds today, so hope you'll visit me

You'd really dig the post office I use. They may not be open 24/7, but they are small and nice and kind and all that. It's very neighborly, which is a blessing out here in the 'burbs.

I'm also glad I'm not the only one with cookie dough cravings after seeing Robin's TT yesterday. Evil, evil friend she is, instilling the cookie dough need in us all.

Too bad we can't get together, mix up a double batch, and have a hen party. Happy TT a day late!

Hmmm. I feel like popping out to Starbucks right now too. But I usually just have plain old decaf when I'm there.

Katie said...

Mmmm Starbucks. Sigh more sleep. I'd like that too.

Can you throw in a Hot Sling as an extra gift too?
