my Christmas 2008 wishlist

The Christmas 2008 wishlist AKA the stuff I’ve been wanting to get but have not found them and/or have no way of getting them 


  • “The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems” – Val Jones
  • “Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage” – Daniel Esty, Andrew Winston
  • “Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox” – Eoin Colfer
  • Chrestomanci series – Dianne Wynne Jones (though I have “Witch Week”)
  • “Coraline” – Neil Gaiman (because my copy is missing )
  • “Neverwhere” – Neil Gaiman
  • “Star Wars, Legacy of the Force: Invincible” – Troy Denning
  • “A Guide to the Birds of the Philippines” – Kennedy et al.
  • any of the Roald Dahl books except for “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, “The Great Glass Elevator”, and “The BFG”


  • “Fragmented” and “Bipolar” – Up Dharma Down
  • “Endings of a New Kind” – Taken by Cars
  • “All Seats are Taken” – The Pin-Up Girls
  • “Sugarfree Live with the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra” – Sugarfree
  • “Sa Wakas” – Sugarfree (because my copy is missing. Waaaahhh )


  • the plastic thing where you wrap your earbuds cord around so that it doesn’t get tangled
  • non-foam earbud covers (do they come in anything other than foam though?) because the foam covers make my ears itch
  • socks. As a great man once said, “One can never have enough socks“. Ankle socks please in different colors


  • a new laptop. Because my IBM Thinkpad R50e (1.5 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 30 GB HD, no battery life whatsoever) is begging to be replaced.
  • external hard drive. Funny how 160 GB sounds huuuuge until a notice pops up that you only have 15 GB left.
  • external DVD burner (my brother’s unit stopped working. Sob)
  • new lenses (in my dreams! Hahaha). I’ve been dreaming of a 10-22 mm lens (is there one with IS?) and a 70-300 mm one. Whooo.

So there. Hahaha. Anyway, a little bit of wishful thinking never hurt anyone
