Comment to be added. I don't bite, promise. :D

We don’t tell each other what we think of each other enough or how much we mean to one another. It's nice to just reach out sometimes and give a little love, so make my day and post a comment anonymously telling me how you feel about me, what you think of me or anything you like.
Then post this on your journal and see what people think of you.
-- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered ... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.Step Two
-- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
-- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.
-- Surf around your Flist (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
-- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
Stolen from a few different people...
Be harsh. Be funny. Be cynical. Be bitchy. Be snarky. Be judgmental. Be reassuring. Be flattering. Be rude. Be devastating.
More than anything, though, please be honest. You can't find this sort of straight-forwardness in real life. This is a rare opportunity for me to use the fact that I have a group of people who know me moderately well and can tell me right now exactly what they think of me.
This is an incredibly vain thing to do, I know. But I do think it's a good chance for everyone to find out what is good and bad about them - what they need to cherish and nurture, and what they need to improve upon.
Thanks, everyone, for your time. <3
