Dear Santa: A Fangirl's Christmas List from Her Wonder Years...

This Fandom Friday post is brought to by the letter N, for (The) Nerdy Girlie, and the letter S for Super Space Chick. And by readers like you
Today's Fandom Friday is based on one's Christmas/Holiday List from "Santa"
I can't help but think of The Santa Clause when Scott's ex-wife spoke about the missing Mystery Date Game for some reason. lol

So, I'm changing up my list to: Five Things I Always Wanted for Christmas, but, never got (usually for good reason).

1). Power Wheels version of the Care Bears Cloud Car

So the really GOOD reason I never got this was that it NEVER EXISTED LOL! Let me tell you one of my earliest fandoms was Care Bears. Obsessed doesn't really begin to cover it. And then, those cute little bears and their cousins had a flying car made of cute clouds? I mean really...FLYING! The only thing I need to add to this is, that under the glove box, I wanted a little house for present #2...

2). A kitten...with a bow...under the tree (it's an iconic image thing).
Looks like my Imogen!

Sure, I have a kitten now. And I even got a kitten around age 10! But that whole idea of a kitten with a ribbon collar nestled under the tree was a dream for me! My family is allergic to cats (yup...love conquers all...or at least allergies) so it didn't happen (solid reason). At least not for a few years...and not at Christmas.

3). A Library

I wanted a library like Belle's to appear on my parent's house. But it's fair to not have one cause...Santa isn't real so the free work from the elves to make it over night wasn't really an option. And cause #BookNerd! (Also, this skirt is on this year's list of wishes...as is the library which will never leave my "list"!).

4). Pager
Glittery & purple? I kind of want this again...

To be honest, I grew up with this rule from my mom: "if I don't know where you are, you're probably not where you're supposed to be." Which in translation meant I wasn't getting a pager because, as a minor, my parents were responsible for me, and a pager wasn't really necessary since I should be telling them where I was to begin with. If that sounds strict, don't worry, because, since I showed responsibility with this rule I didn't have a curfew. That's right. By letting my parents know where I was (and when those plans changed) I didn't have a curfew. I think not having a pager (as cute as I thought they were) was a win for me.


5). Snowboard
Gonzo, or, Animal...I want them!!!

I still don't own one (nor am I very good at it) but dang it, I LOVE snowboarding! I own the clothing supplies...I just need bindings, board...and a mountain (thanks a lot Florida). But I feel like boards are so expensive.

And that was my Christmas list from my wonder years!


 What are some items you wanted for Christmas growing up?

  4. This is why you are my good friend!!! CARE BEARS were my favorite next to Popples back in the day and I've always wanted a Power Wheels Car! We were ment to be!

Library would be amazing and so perfect and I also want a snowboard, I went for the first time a couple years ago and LOVED IT!

  5. What I wouldn't give for the Power Wheels Car! I actually had a pager! Haha.. my mother would say that you only needed a pager for two reason then she finally went if you can save for it and pay the bill go for it. She didn't think I would. Oh man, I learned pager code and that phone trick where the payphone would return your quarter.

  6. Haha, I love this list! Belle's library was also on my wishlist growing up, along with a Christmas kitty! I got a puppy instead, which worked out better for family allergies, but still. Cat.

    I think my favorite childhood gift was a trampoline that my brother and I got when we were 10. We lived on a farm in Illinois and our land was covered with snow. It was a perfect winter wonderland!

  17. If you know someone who does, you could have them teach you.
    It is admittedly a little difficult if you've never done it before. If you've skateboarded, or, surfed you have a little bit of an advantage as they help with balance. However, I feel skate and surf are more closely related in their dynamics of boarding.

    But try it! It's fun!

  18. Oh bummer about Christmas-kitty-from-hell.
    At least your current two are great!
