Holiday Wishlist

Okay stole this from Essin 'Em after I promised to fulfill at least part of one of her wishes. I figured, why not? Maybe someone will have something to spare that I want/need. And I'm happy to try to fill your wishes as well if you link to a similar post. If you are interested in fulfilling one of my wishes email me at
Step One
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered…whatever you’re comfortable with) to your LJ or Myspace or Blog. The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just an email address at which you can be contacted by potential wish-grantors, real or imaginary.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your post, so that the holiday joy will spread.
Step Two
- Surf around your friends list/blogroll/RSS feeds (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list.
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use–or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free–do it.
You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a chance to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not–it’s your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just…wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.

So here's what I wish for:
1. An e-stim starter kit. Midori suggested we give electricity play a try since it will cause pain without hurting my arthritic hands the way beating my wife does.
2. A second hitachi because my wife apparently needs one on her side of the bed too so she doesn't scare the crap out of me when she wakes me up in the middle of the night looming over me trying to get the cord over my head without waking me.
3. Free advertising/marketing advice for my blog. I just don't have the time, energy, or know-it-all for this stuff and I could really use some help. I'd love to get my blog out more so I can gain a larger audience.
4. I'd love a copy of Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink by Midori.
5. Book covers in different size so people can't see what I'm reading on my lunch break or my commutes to and from work.
6. A variety of flavored hot chocolates (bonus for white hot chocolate!) Noms!
7. Acupuncture: I've been meaning to try this for my arthritis, but haven't gotten around to it. Also, it can be pretty pricey. I know of a couple places that do it on a sliding scale though.
8. A recumbent stationary bike. Once again trying another way that I can exercise without hurting my arthritis. So many ways have failed me.
9. Awesome friends in the Bay Area that are in the sex ed/porn biz that can help me get started and who are just cool to hang out with.
10. A trip to Stockholm/London/Paris/Rome/Berlin etc. because I've never been out of the country and would really really like to travel Europe. I'd even be willing to start with Canada ;)
11. Women's black trouser socks. I swear no matter how many pairs I buy they all disappear soon after!
12. Giftcards to Target/Torrid/Amazon/Peapod/JT's Stockroom
13. A spreader bar ... If you know what that is I think its pretty self-explanatory.
14. A Lelo Gigi because she's so sexy and I really want to take her for a spin.
15. A pedicure at No, its not a website, but a nail salon in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. They are the best though with their massage chairs!
16. A copy of a book that you think I'd really like.
17. A USB drive.
18. Penny Flame's Expert Guide to Rough Sex

No worries on the USB drive. A friend is sending me a super fancy awesome one!

DominaDoll said...

Do you have / want Midori's book on Japanese Bondage? :)

Garnet Joyce said...

DominaDoll: Unfortunately, no I don't currently have any interest in rope. I'm a busy lady and rope just takes too long to learn and practice.

I have a copy of Penny Flame's Rough Sex on my PC that I can upload to my site and give you a link to directly download it, if you don't feel you need the actual DVD.

And I do have a bunch of fiction books that I have hung on to but I don't know if they're your type :)

Garnet Joyce said...

Lilly: Don't need the DVD. I will definitely be happy with watching it on my computer.

As far as books go, I tend to prefer books that aren't too dense. I usually read during my commute to and from work so its best if the topic is lighter. I love humor and magic. Some fave authors are Neil Gaiman, Dan Savage, Christopher Moore, Mabel Maney, and Douglas Adams. Hopefully that will give you a bit of an idea.

Thanks in advance!
