06:58 am - Friday I Want....
It is a Friday morning, unseasonably warm and damp, with the Dog of the House wandering around (a new trait for her, as she has been wandering around at the office too OMG no no no don't go down that hallway!). I will not list the small annoyances and allergies which plague me today. Instead, let us play "I Want."

(The rules of "I Want" are not written down, but in short -- five minutes to list what, um, you want right now.)

I want a longer attention span.

I want a blueberry cake doughnut.

I want the Livejournal spellchecker to accept my spelling of 'doughnut.'

I want a hug.

I want the people who will be waiting in line for assistance at the local neighborhood center this morning to have what they need.

I want to sell one of my novels.

I want to do an hour and a half of yoga today, full out.

I want to dance.

I want to have a chimichanga for lunch.

I want a tall, well-iced glass of Perrier.

I want a picture of the flock of water-birds which somehow, unaccountably, were hanging out in my back garden a couple of days ago -- when the Dog of the House and I went outside, the sky became white-winged for a moment, and then they were gone.

I want to write all afternoon. Oh, and have a nap too. Hmmm.


Hugs to all -- and what do you want on this Friday?

::hugs hugs:: I want many of these things myself! hmm, perhaps an LJ post...

i hope you get to take a nap. I have a similar afternoon: I want to get a lot of essays done today, and I want to take a nap. In the sunshine. Like a cat.

here's to dancing!

I want a real NY bagel with cream cheese and lox. And capers.

Alas.

But at least I can give you hugs! ::hugs::

I want my head to stop hurting.

I want for my marble mocha from the cafe to not be almost gone.

I want to find fabulous Christmas presents for people when I go to the craft fair tonight.

I want some sunshine.

I want to get caught up on my word count for NaNo.

I want to be in London, watching Alex on stage.

I want the bells in the carrilon in the church next door to stop playing ten minutes of music three times a day, and failing that, I want them to forget to change it over to Christmas carols next month.

I want, in the words of Edward Magorium, to remember that my life is an occasion, and to rise to it.

I want a little adventure in the coming days.

I want to send load of hugs to you and the Dog of the House, and that, at least, I can do.

*hugs hugs to you and the Dog of the House*

This is a wonderful list, beautifully balanced between small and large wishes. I hope that you get some of these (including the immediate end of the headache!) soonest, W_P.

Hugs and a happy Friday!

[Hugs and a tall iced glass of Perrier]

I want enough energy to do the household chores and get the pieces cut out for my planned two pairs of pajama pants.

I want relief from all my stress, some of which is probably self-induced. Failing that, I want to be able to ignore some of it, or at least set it aside for a while.

I want cooler, damper weather with minimal winds, because we're on fire watch again.

I want to go eat my breakfast now - I walked up to the Corner Bakery for an Anaheim scrambler, and it's calling me.

And what does the Dog of the House want today?

I want my OU assignment to go in on time (midnight tonight) and get high marks, even though I haven't actually done it yet.

Sorry for the duplication -- I sent the other comment from the wrong LJ account.

Anyway... all good thoughts for a stunning OU assignment, done before deadline! :-) [hugs]

Yay for teaching Firefox new spellings! And hugs for the work wishes, the walk home, and the weekend! (Pls excuse excessive alliteration.)

I want you to get what you want.

And I want more time -- for you, for me, for all of us.
