Crazy Random Happenstance

Billy: So good... Hey, this is weird. I ordered one frozen yogurt and they gave me two. You don't happen to like frozen yogurt, do you?
Penny: I love it!
Billy: You're kidding? What a crazy random happenstance!

My Birthday is in a few weeks (November 8th). I've asked my family and friends not to get me gifts this year because all I really want is to eat delicious food and hang out with my favorite people. However, that doesn't mean that I can't continue my tradition of constructing a wish list of things I would like to have. This list will be filled with practical things, silly things and things that are completely out of the realm of possibility BUT as this is a birthday wishlist and birthdays are supposed to be about hopes, dreams and wishes for the year ahead, it's all completely acceptable. Here are the links to my ------ > 30th and ------ > 31st Birthday Lists.

Now, 32 wishes for my 32nd Birthday:

1.) A really nice digital camera.

2.) Handwarmers. For work. I spend ALL day trying to keep my hands warm.

3.) Dancing lessons from Tristan MacManus and/or Mark Ballas.

4.) For Chris Brown to go away.

5.) To go to Ireland. Or England. Or Italy.

6.)  A neverending supply of Trailmix. Preferably the Costco kind but I would accept the Meijer brand as well.

7.) My own Avocado tree.

8.) To go to "An Evening With The Tragically Hip" on November 28th at The Fillmore.

9.) A family pass to Greenfield Village/Henry Ford Museum.

10.) To be an Editor.

11.) To get paid to read books all day. I realize this is like #10 but if I were to get paid to read. JUST read all day long... That would be perfection.

12.) A pill that would eliminate all headaches forever and ever.

13.) An unlimited Barnes & Noble (or any book store) gift card.

14.) For Stephenie Meyer to finish Midnight Sun. I realize this is the 3rd year that this has been on the list but as it hasn't happened yet, I will put it on every time until it's published.

15.) A Fratelli's or Havilland reunion. I would be happy with just one reunion show. (I bet other people would too!)

16.) To hang out with Nathan Fillion for a day.

17.) To go see The Killers at Eastern Michigan on December 20th.

18.) To go see Ed Sheeran at The Fillmore on January 24th.

19.) A Labyrinth reunion. I realize this would consist of Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie and lots of Muppets and I am OK with that but Toby Froud (Toby) could be there too!

20.) To have lunch with JK Rowling.

21.) To live in/go to Erin Morgenstern's Night Circus.

22.) To hang out with Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.

23.) A bigger house.

24.) For Jeffrey and I to write a book together.

25.) To go back to Disney World/Harry Potter World.

26.) A coffee mug from

27.) To be able to help out at Charley's school every now and then. Being a working mom means that I don't have the opportunity to help out with his classroom in the middle of the day. It makes me sad when he asks me to and I can't. Wah wah wah.

28.) New bedroom furniture or more specifically, a new big dresser. Mine is real old and really falling apart. Drawers are no longer in brackets and the bottoms are all falling out. I am classy!

29.) To do one of those NoH8 photo shoots.

30.) For Matt Bomer to wish me a Happy Birthday.

31.) To hang out on the set of New Girl for a day.

32.) To have a really, really, really, really wonderful 32nd year.
