Much of the holiday stress comes from expectations around gifts, giving and receiving. And I'm not really about the gifts at Christmas, despite the purpose of this post. I'm listing things I'd like (not because so many of you have asked, but it provides a central site for the flow of information). And given how long it took me to compile this list, it'd be a shame not to share it with the world, despite how presumptuous and egotistic it makes me.
CDs — My list is a little Polaris-flavoured, definitely all-Canadian:
- Final Fantasy, He Poos Clouds
- The Hidden Cameras, Awoo
- Metric, Live It Loud
- The Stills, Without Feathers
DVDs — I don't have much time for watching movies lately, but I'll make time for this one:
- Little Miss Sunshine (to be released Dec. 19)
Books — more Canadiana:
- Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland
- Baseballissimo or For Those About to Rock by Dave Bidini
- Wine decanter
- Golf balls
If you want to use the comments to coordinate efforts and avoid duplication, I won't check them until the New Year. Really, I won't.
