Many people, when writing a Christmas Wish List, wish for things like Peace on Earth and End to World Hunger...
While I would like to think that we are always wishing for those things...not just on Christmas...then on Christmas I would feel okay wishing for other things...things that might be a little silly to some, but are a little rational to me.
I won't go on and on about how my regular Christmas list includes the Office DVD Game Set, a new car (oh ya, just got that one!) and a waffle iron. I do, however, have a few small wishes for Christmas that I've been thinking about for little while.
So, Santa, I've been EXTRA good this year. Do you think you could bring me at least just one of them???
First, I wish those who leave comments on my blog would push that little button right below their comment that says "Email follow-up comments to ________________ (insert blogger's email address here)". So that when they leave a question or a remark I'd like to respond to I can be assured they'll get it. I usually don't write back because I'm quite confident no one is going to re-check the comments portion of my blog on that post to see if I've responded.
Second, I wish people would leave voicemails when they call my phone. Even if it's just to say, "Wow... I just accidentally called your phone by mistake." Or, "looks like you're not there. I'll try your other phone." Most people don't know that if they just push the "#" key, they can skip the whole "Sorry I'm not here right now. Leave a message...blah, blah, blah" and get to the "BEEEEEP" to leave a message. (With Sprint phones like mine, you have to push "1" though and you'll get straight to voicemail)
There are so many reasons I wish this. I just think that when a person leaves a message, it clears up any confusion as to why they called and whether or not I need to get back to them. It would also help if the person told me WHAT it is they needed so that when I call them back I can have an answer for them. This way if it's something I could have an answer for them when I call them back, we would save so much time...
Third, (and I mean this with ALL DUE RESPECT) I wish that people wouldn't have music on their blogs. While I TOTALLY appreciate music as an art form to express yourself and your favorite songs, when I'm blogging I already have my music playing in the background and it totally clashes. Then, before my brain explodes, I either have to turn off my playlist... or move the scroll bar up and down a huge long blog page to find the person's music player that they've hidden down at the bottom, or somewhere in the middle, to pause it.
Now, like I said, this is said with ALL DUE RESPECT cuz I don't always dislike it. It's just sometimes. Although, I do think it's funny when people have a song playing in the background that is like a soundtrack to the post they've just written.
Fourth, I really, really, really, really wish people who blog-stalked would leave comments... just once. It's fun to know you're looking.
Lastly, I wish people would stop using Facebook and come back to blogging. I miss you. And I don't have time, nor want to place a priority on creating a Facebook of my own. I know if I want to be "with the times" then I should create one, but I just can't bring myself to.
So there. There's a few wishes I've had thoughts about. Do you think because I've been a Nice Girl this year you could grant me some?
