5 Fandom Friday: Christmas Wishes

Okay so I already got ONE Christmas present this year from my mom: it’s a Soda Stream.  And I love it so much I couldn’t possibly want anything more!  Oh except maybe…

1.  My dad to sing carols off-key  He does this high-pitched, airy yodel?  Jury’s still out whether he’s putting us on or if that’s *really* his singing voice, like that chick in A Chorus Line “It isn’t intentional!”-“She’s doing her best!”  His favourite song is this Chipmunks song, and it just wouldn’t be Christmas without his voice cracking on the “I still want a hula hoop!” part.

Makin’ faces last Christmas

2.  My puppy’s health  (I shouldn’t call him a puppy, he’s an old man!)  He’s been having health problems and I haven’t seen him in a while and I worry, y’know?  It breaks my heart to think he’s getting older, and I haven’t been around.  I just want to see him doing well.

3.  My boyfriend’s raspy laugh  is rare, and precious.  The kind where his eyes make a thousand crinkles all down the side of his face and his lower lip curls up cuz his smile stretches his mouth so wide and he gasps for air because he’s laughing so hard.  I WANT THAT.

4.  A DERMATOLOGIST APPOINTMENT  four months ago, when I saw a doctor, I made an appointment to see a dermatologist for my painful and stubborn acne.  I don’t know if I’ll be able to go, but my appointment would be on the 28th of December.  Here’s hoping, I’ve waited so long.  UPDATE:  I just got my insurance reinstated!  I am SET to go!!


5.  My mom’s Roberson tree  this has become a tradition in the last couple of years, and this year it’s EVEN BETTER!  The Roberson is a science museum attached to a historic mansion BUT WAIT, it gets EVEN BETTER!  During the Holidays, local community organizations sponsor diorammas explaining Christmas traditions around the world AND THEN, local businesses and groups will sponsor a tree and decorate it!  My MOM decorated a tree for her librarian organization and made all the ornaments so I HAVE to go see my mom’s tree!  Oh, if you think I’m crafty, my mom is an ARTISTE!  I can’t wait to see her tree!

  1. I'm so glad you can get the dermatologist, and I hope they can help. We love our soda stream (we don't even drink soda- but my fiance drinks a lot more water if it's fizzy), so glad to hear you're enjoying yours as well!

    • We never drink soda, but I go through seltzer at an alarming rate. In just two days, we've drunk maybe 4 litres of fizzy water between the two of us. We are so freakin hydrated!!!

  2. I love this list! And I hope your dog is doing well. My dog is getting older, too, and I really don't do well when I think about his health declining. I hope you get to see him soon!

  3. I absolutely love that picture of you and your boyfriend! You look so, so happy! ♥ Good luck at the Dermatologist. I'll be home for Christmas so I'll make sure to go see your Mom's tree as well. It's been SOO long since I've been to Roberson- I miss it.

    • Thank you!! That's my favourite picture of us. The Roberson is like an annual tradition now, I wish I could tell you which tree my mom's is but, uh, it will be book themed? And the ornaments will be origami snowflakes made out of book pages? So I hope that helps!!!

  4. I've been really selfish this season (possibly because I deprive myself all year round)
    , but these were really great Christmas wishes. Sending you lots of love, laughter, and puppy healing. 🙂
