So, since I regularly beg for money (which sometimes even works), I was thinking of what I might beg for money for, with winter coming on and such. And then a list started to form in my head.
So, for Christmas, I would like:
- A new winter coat
- A rain coat
- Gloves that don't suck
- A hat (mostly so my ears and forehead don't freeze off)
- Shoes that are waterproof
- Boots, maybe. I don't know, though. That might be a reckless spending splurging kind of thing to spend money on. I mean you can shovel snow for six hours in sneakers if you have to. (Not that I have sneakers at the moment.)
- Non-jean legwear
And, you know, that might be about it. I mean I did think of random other things I could add to be silly:
- Food for the donkey. "What donkey?" you ask.
- A donkey.
Original thought was pony. The thing is, I don't think of ponies in terms of their usefulness. It's probably unfair, but if I think of a working animal then what I need is a pack animal and when I think "pack animal" I think "donkey."
If I am to imagine myself loading up my groceries onto the back of a quadruped so I don't have to suffer under their weight for the duration of the walk home, I picture said quadruped as donkey, not a pony.
So, for the moment, that seems to be my list. If you feel like sending enough money to buy anything on that list to me, the donate button is always open. And donating even lets you leave a message so you can say, "This is totally for thing X, not thing Y," if you so desire.
