A List

"What do you want for Christmas?" is something I get asked, or think about, as early as October. When I was younger, I was more accustomed to making 'wish lists' so that my family had an idea on what to get me. Also because my liking for a particular book format, special edition DVD, etc...

Then, I got a job (either part time pay-the-tuition or full time, depending on where I was at in life) and bought my own stuff throughout the year. 


Since I have a few readers on here, I will share the answer to that question on here so you have an idea of what Old Man Hawboldt wants this year. And you know, in case Santa reads this blog. 




- gift cards from: Glebe Emporium, Chapters, itunes, Eddie Bauer, Roots, Mountain Equipment Co-Op (MEC), FutureShop and Cineplex. 


- I have some wishlists online made to track what I what would like to buy myself if I win a lottery and was going on a spending spree.
