Love #10. The kisses even glitter in the sunlight so the Twilight nuts will love it. I actually wonder why Hershey hasn’t jumped on that bandwagon, certainly ever other company in America has…

Actually got a list up!

Happy New Year!

A Jerry Garcia bong made out of chocolate sounds like a money-making idea. I’d get on it before one of the multinational food companies does.

I’m listy, too.

#3. Nice. As long as it’s not in reality one of the toxic assets – Gingy’s foreclosed-upon residence.

My list is up. Happy New Year!

I love your lists, but I’m a bum & don’t have one (ever). And I always feel creepy about the idea of having kids whisper their biggest wants/desires to a random guy (kinda like a secret), whose lap they sit on, he is too friendly (only seems interested in little kids & appears to be grooming the family) & then he gives them candy. So #10 totally freaks me out. I love St. Nicholas (the real deal) but not the whole mall/store Santa thing. Now, peeps those I could get behind & ingest in large qualities even on Arbor Day (they could be trees). But that’s because I have sickness attached to loving them. I’m thinking it may be melamine. Oh, delicious melamine :)

This list takes me back in time to my aunt’s shadowy candy cane closet, where years’ worth of half-price candy were recycled season after season. Shudder.

List is up.

Love the gingerbread spec houses! I have a list up this week too: http://thanksgivingfeast.blogspot.com/2010/01/lists-strange-hats.html

We must all be getting back onto the blogging train for 2010:-)

I’d eat every damn one of those candies. The only good thing about holidays is the food.

anna January 4, 2010 at 11:17 am

I don’t even like the food very much.

anna January 4, 2010 at 11:15 am

@Eliz, maybe I should look into the Jerry Garcia thing, actually.

@perpetua, my grandparents had one of those closets, too. I remember getting very sick from eating out of it once. Yuck.

anna January 4, 2010 at 11:16 am

@Tim, yeah, it’s got asbestos in the drywall!

anna January 4, 2010 at 11:17 am

@Juliet, everybody is doing their new year’s lists today, I think you’re right.

Ginger January 4, 2010 at 11:44 am

HA (#4). I know quite a few people who could get behind #7 too.

My list is up.

anna January 4, 2010 at 12:10 pm

You’re all linked up!

Beth January 4, 2010 at 12:10 pm

I love Peeps. I’d eat them for any marginal holiday!

I created my own list this week! http://bit.ly/83DRXu

Thanks for keeping me chuckling with your lists!

anna January 4, 2010 at 12:19 pm
