Ok, pay attention, because here's what we want for Christmas: a recumbent bike, a talking parrot, a slingshot, the complete works of Susan Sontag, a beret, a cigarette holder, and a new pair of Nike Zoom Tremennial Desert Trackers. The end.

There are so many things going through my head right now. I'm trying to think what I want: A girl who can be original. Or, as a consolation gift, I would like people who order Budweiser to stop calling it "Bud heavy." I add a dollar to the price whenever they do that.

I always like gift cards. Bloomingdales, H&M, Express... I like when I get stuff that means I don't have to pay money for something. Like rent. Actually, not rent. I would never ask for someone to chip in with rent; I'd take a second job before I ever did that. I just graduated and I'm trying to learn how to be on my own. I don't need anything huge, but my dream gift would be a trip to Paris. I'm happy in Manhattan, but I want to explore Europe. But, I'm an actress, and I need to figure that out before I start jetting around every place.

All I want for Christmas is money. I need to pay my bills, and if I get money for Christmas I might be able to catch up. No, I'm not asking for anything else. If I ever do ask for anything, it's cash only. I don't have a real desire for anything that I would ask for. It sounds oxymoronic: asking for a gift. It's the same with my birthday, I never ask for anything then. On the other hand, I don't think twice about it if someone asks me to get them something. Guess it's just me.

I want a trip to Jamaica. I don't have anyone I can think of I want to go with... I just want a trip by myself. Alone is good. Or honestly... a good night's sleep! Or an iPod. I want all those things. I have an iPod, of course, but it's small. Like a four-gig: I can't fit any songs on it. I definitely do not want, like, a boyfriend for Christmas; just a trip to Jamaica, with an iPod, for a good night's sleep. Perfect.
