What I'm Not Getting This Year

The meme theme today is 10 things I want but will never buy for myself. How to do this without sounding entire self-indulgent?

How about:

world peace

the end of poverty

a cure for all things...?

Okay, fine. I will get a bit more honest. The real list starts now.

a Kindle or some such thing

new furniture for the family room


tickets to somewhere sunny and tropical

dinner that doesn't involve WW or ground turkey, beans, or high fiber


a little nip and tuck

a new floor for the kitchen

someone to finish my botched bathroom remodel


a really fast boat.

What's on your non-list this year?

It's ok - we all have that list!

My top 5:
5. New car
4. New wardrobe
3. lap top computer
2. ipod touch
1. New 50mm 1.4 lens (drool just thinking about it)

I can actually say that I don't want anything. And for those who know me well, this is quite entertaining. gah

LadyFi said...

I hear you about tickets to somewhere warm and sunny!

A really fast 2 seater car. Sadly, it will never be on my list.
Lumineers? Gosh, I can only dream.

claudia said...

I want the Kindle or some such thing too. I will buy it for myself, but only after the price comes down drastically. Can you say, "waiting forever"?
Just curious, why do you want a really fast boat? As much time as I have spent on the water in boats, the really fast ones scare teh bajeezus out of me!

Checkered said...

Well....okay....good. I've got my shopping list and I'm off to the store. Wish me luck!

Sue said...

Oh crap, I didn't get my list in fast enough for Checkered to go shopping with!!!
I would like my teeth professionally whitened and a new car. Ok and a house with NO MORTGAGE!!! Oh and I would be happy to go on that vacation with you....

1. Diamond earrings.
2. Nice picture frames
3. Nice soaps and lotions.
4. That gorgeous red coat with the ruffles.

I'm cheap and dress in clothing from the Clinton administration.

Please nominate me for "What Not to Wear."

Hello fellow SITSta! I need your help!

Could you vote for me in Iron Cupcake?

(I am campaigning for votes….because I put a lot of time and effort into this)

If there is anything I can do for you in the future don’t hesitate to ask!

this is a cute meme; I debate about wanting a Kindle; I think I would really like it, but then I think "maybe not" (mainly because I know its not feasible on my list this year)

I don't know what would be on my list since I don't really have a list and I'm trying to learn to be content with just what I have.....(its hard though)

What I want is to not get all those gifts I do not want.

Betty said...

That Kindle is on the top of my list too!

It's funny. Today in the office (very similar to The Office if you watch the show), my boss asked us all to list 3 things we wanted, because we're drawing names and being a man he fears having to use his imagination to figure out what someone may want, so we all had to list out these 3 things that someone in the department could buy *if* they chose our names. (Are you as exhausted as I am with this yet?)

Everyone came back with things like a gift card to a restaurant (we have a set limit, and at the end of the day, everyone should jsut take themselves out to a restaurant for twenty bucks! it's ridiculous. you're not grading grammar or punctuation in these comments, are you? thank you.)

anyway,trying to break the monotony of the ridiculously repetitive answers, i said my three things were world peace, a winning lottery ticket and diamonds (even though i don't possess a single diamond).

my point is, world peace was on my list today, too.

at least i think that's my point.
