Josh's List for 2006

Please do remember, these are just suggestions. I am not expecting to get all of these presents. Thanks. If you're not sure if someone has purchased something, just talk to Chara.
  • A CD by Meridian
  • Rank Strangers CD
  • Guitar strings like this or like this
  • Guitar lessons (you find them, I'll take them)
  • 512 megabyte - 1 GB MP3 player charges via USB cord
  • 1 Gigabyte memory card for camera at Office Max for $13
  • Men's Avia running shoes, size 10 for $13 at Academy Sports
  • Fold up portable speakers for an MP3 player for $8 at Radio Shack
Here are some things that I don't really want anyone to get me. These are for me to save up and buy myself. This just helps me remember and they are Black Friday prices. I wouldn't spend any more than this on any other day.
  • 6-8 megapixel, 3-5x optical zoom digital camera:
    • Tech Manual for a 2002 Kia Rio
    • Kayak at Dick's Sporting Goods for $200

    Chara's 2006 List- Just in time...

    While it's still a little early to make a Christmas List (for most people... my mother has already been asking) I think that it's probably a good idea to make one before my birthday... So here it goes. If you're not sure if someone has already purchased this for me, just talk to Josh.

    First- the books I've been eyeing:
    Dan Yashinsky's Suddenly They Heard Footsteps
    Dan Yashinsky's Risky Stories

    The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
    The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
    Stardust by Neil Gaiman
    Living Out Loud by Keri Smith
    The Apron Book by EllynAnne Geisel
    The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
    Rebekah (Women of Genesis) by Orson Scott Card

    Boring Page

    So this is our Christmas list- online for our family. But it's boring. So I'm going to play with it!

    This is me and Josh on our 2nd anniversary on Roan Mountain. We started a tradition (okay- we did it twice) where we go out of town and find a nice cabin in the woods to hide in for a weekend right around our anniversary. I like it.
    For our 3rd anniversary we went to North Carolina and almost got stuck at this great cabin. It had a hot tub (much nicer when there is snow on the ground), a fire place and some really weird art on the walls. We won't get specific.

    Well, I guess i've started something.
