ok, enough seriousness with life already. Let’s have some fun with material things. Here is a list of things I want to have or do – these are short-term instant gratification items:

Tickets to the Lord of the Rings Symphony in Cleveland on July 22

The Nine West and Naughty Monkey shoes from my Zappos.com wishlist

The Arwen pendant from the Noble Collection

A one or two night stay at the 1804 Inn at Barboursville Vineyard in September

The Timbuk2 Limited Edition messenger bag. They are so cool – you can build your own bag on the Timbuk2 website.

The Sumatra bed from Pottery Barn

I am sure that I will be adding to this list later…
