9 Things on My Chanukah List

The 12 year old I babysit for on the Upper East Side already has a Christmas Powerpoint ready for Santa, so I figured I better get started on my selfish give-me-things-please list.  Feel free to pick and choose what you'd like to gift me! 1.A geltfiend sweater. Or 8.  Because hipsters are Jewish too. You can also never have enough cat sweaters. A puppy swimsuit would also be acceptable.

2. A Twitter nameplate necklace. As today's Carrie Bradshaw, it's only natural I have the bling to match.

3. A Jonathan Adler pillow, particularly this one, but I'll accept any of them, really.

4. A ticket to Paris.  Just because.  A private jet would be nice too. On the same theme of totally practical gifts, perfect French speaking abilities overnight would be much appreciated as well.

5. Waterproof boots.  The poor Australian lambs that gave their lives for my Uggs still make my feet wet.  Sorry lambs.

6. A prettified apartment.  A Rug, mirror box, or hallway mirror are all very nice gifts. Also, a new pasta machine will guarantee you fresh pasta on demand for at least a few months.

7. A job at a magazine/blog/respected publication that allows me to work in my pajamas at a coffeeshop and pays the rent.. On that note, an unlimited Starbucks giftcard wouldn't be bad either.

8. New clothes for my iPad. A matching hobo bag would also be nice.

9. And World Peace.
