Gift Wish List

Don't know about you but I like GIVING gifts that are exactly what people want. Maybe that's because I also like GETTING gifts that are exactly what I want. As requested by ~j, here is my impromptu list in no particular order...

I'm with you....I like to get exactly what I want. I am just never clear on what that is...leaving the gift giver to guess. It's not fair, I know. YOU are my hero--this list ROCKS!! I could help with the knee-highs, the toffee, and the whistle. Oh, and I have a few "gently used" Yu Gi O cards. :-D

great list Shan. I looked at your jacket but couldn't get back to your website without closing the Harley website and starting again. You're amazing that you took the time to do that whole list with links attached. I think I'll put my list on my blog too. Thats a good idea.
