July is my favorite month. That’s because it’s my birth month, as well as that of my husband and my mom (and our first pregnancy had it push through. 😮 ). And because birthdays are also perfect occasions for
asking for presents making wishlists (the other one being Christmas 😉 ), here’s mine for the year.
1. The Official Guide to The X-Files Volumes 1-3. Because I’m a completist (see book peeve #10), and I’ve already got The Official Guide Volumes 4-6. Tsk, I really should have bought Volume 3 then when I got the chance. But then, I didn’t have the cash. 😦 It was pricey, esp for a college student allowance.
2. Scully’s crucifix pendant. (Hello Patron! I wonder if you’re reading this. 😉 😛 )
3. Barbie and Ken, as Mulder and Scully. and/or
6. Jose Mari Chan’s “Christmas in our Hearts” album. 😎 Because we’re halfway through the year, and before you know it, it’ll be Christmas. And Jose Mari Chan is the essence of Pinoy Christmas! Hehe. 😀 (Side story: I once saw him at the airport. And unlike other artistas who pretend that they do not see you and purposely look the other way, Mr. Chan met my gaze, nodded, smiled and began to sing “Fancy meeting you alone in the crowd, couldn’t help but notice your smile….” Ok, I’m kidding about the last part. 😛 But he did smile, and I find it rather nice coming from the best-selling Filipino singer of all time. And man, he still looks the same as when the first time I saw girls and boys selling lanterns on the street!!!!)
7. The Philippine Madrigal Singers “Acclamation” album. Because of their soul-stirring “Awit ng Paghahangad.”
8. Cath Kidston stuff for the rainy season: cag in a bag and a walking umbrella in Clifton Rose Bloomsbury design.
9. The Morning Star Trilogy (Boxed Set) by Nick Bantock. Because as previously mentioned I’m a completist, and I’ve already got the first set. I’ve always been fascinated by the correspondence between Griffin and Sabine. 🙂
11. VMV Hypoallergenics Know-It-Oil (VCO). I’ve started using this in lieu of moisturizer/lotion because of my eczema.
So to my fans, friends and family who wish to make me happy on my 3-th birthday, now you know what will. 😉
Seriously though, I just like making lists of things I like. It always feels good thinking about your favorite things. Most of the time, my wishlists are just fancy shopping lists because I end up buying these things for myself anyway. 😉 The REAL Wishlist is much more personal and less materialistic. 😛 And because they are things (to quote a song), “the world cannot give… the world cannot understand…” it is really more of a Prayer List. In a nutshell, I wish for/pray for PROTECTION, PROVISION and PEACE. 🙂
