Turtles have lists as well - Part San
Tis the season, so this list is dedicated to the childhood tradition of my annual christmas list of what I want from Santa. I don't remember any longer how old I was when I discovered that Santa was a fairy tail, or for that matter what triggered that knowledge. Now, as then, a list for Santa are materialistic things for the most part with a thought or fifteen towards other things.
So here goes, the 2009 Gamera christmas wish-list!
A Congress that works as a lawmaking body and not as a preschool for petulant children. Additionally, for a functioning Congress to pass a law making it illegal for lawyers to make laws and therefore be inelligible to hold state or federal office due to a horrific conflict of interest.
A 5' Hello Kitty robot that is a fully functioning maid for all household chores (that's probably more for my girlfriend but either way)
A ridealong with Tony Stewart at Indianapolis Speedway
The MST3000 catalog on DVD
The worlds ultimate roller coaster park to be built in Las Vegas
Oscar Goodman to run for governor when he's done being Vegas' mayor
For the Opportunity Rover to reach Endeavour Crater and perform research
A computer and controller that lets me play Day of Defeat on line with as little lag as is electronically possible
For lack of a better term at the moment, unlimited financial independence
My beloved Ducks to win the Rose Bowl
For Bill Watterson and Gary Larson to both find the urge to create comics again
An end to America's fascination with reality-based television
For the paparazzi to get a picture of Ann Coulter's penis
For the paparazzi to get a picture of Bill O'Reilly's vagina
For MSNBC to stop acting quite so sanctimonious
For my party to cease its belief that fear = control
A new years eve party with Hawkwind performing Live Chronicles
Jim Gibbons' resignation
For Paradox to greate a game based on their system that is similar to Sid Meyer's Civilization in scope
and, as always, the secrets of electro-magnetic propulsion
That's enough for this time Santa, and although I could run the list on for a few weeks I don't want to be greedy. Thanks Santa!
