I like to do the Fandom Stocking thing so here's mine:

1.) Comment on everything you read/view and like during the holiday fests season, especially. It's a busy time right now and lots of people (me included) are frantically trying to finish shit up. A comment is golden, even if it's on an old piece of fanwork(s). Give a gift and pass it on.
2.) Did you know that $5 will feed 50 dogs at your local shelter? Leave a Donation somewhere for me. Look through your pantry and clean it out to give to the local food bank. Donate to your local animal shelter. Clean out your closets and give to your local homeless shelter. Buy a coat for someone and donate it. Buy blankets and donate them.
3.) Make me a cool icon or fanmix or upload your favorite holiday song and share with me why it's your favorite song. (Darcy the Dragon by Roger Whittaker and Emmanuel by Janis Ian are my favorites)
4.) I won't turn down Amazon.com gift cards. Or Bestbuy.com or Thinkgeek.com
5.) Hold the door for someone. Take an extra moment to say 'thank you' and 'you're welcome' and 'please'. This is one of my biggest pet peeves so you'll be giving me a gift by not being a dick.
6.) Write me a random fic. Or draw me art.
7.) Paid time for my LJ would be lovely.
8.) Give to your local library. They're all hurting for dollars. Even better than giving, check to see what their LGBT section looks like and donate some LGBT books that they can use.
9.) I wouldn't turn down any of the more recent The Editors albums. I need "Papillon", "You Don't Know Love", and "In This Light and On This Evening".
10.) I wouldn't mind some LGBT books either. Say, "Hero", "The Obsidian Man", "Masks Rise of Heroes", "David Inside Out", or "Boy Meets Boy".

Because I'm too lazy to do a new poll - here is my poll for Christmas/Holiday cards from last year. Feel free to sign up for one this year. I love sending them though they'll be cutting it close to get there for Christmas. I have about 60 boxes of cards so help me clean out my stash. I promise I won't show up at your house unless you invite me. EDITED TO ADD: If you don't plan on sending, that's cool! I love sending them so please don't worry about reciprocating! Also, if you're international, I don't much care, I'll send international.

I love getting cards, too, so if you have my address already, please send me one. I missed all the polls due to work. If you wanted to send me one, could you link me to your poll? Danke!

I am so chaotic and stressed out at work that a break away would be lovely. I've been eating popcorn and pretzels for lunch for the past week because I haven't had a break from my desk.

Anytime next week would be awesome.

I feel like I have your address from another time, but I'm not a hundred percent sure. I'm too lazy to go find my holiday card post to link you to it. So how about A. you PM me with your address, or B. You reply to this comment with your address and then delete it before anyone else can see. I'll still see it when I get the email notif.

YAY! I love Christmas cards! I refilled out the poll, so I hope it shows up properly for you. I tend to fail tremendously at sending them myself, but I am thinking and sending all manner of good thoughts and wishes. :)

I've been reading and commenting, which should give you and the writers/artists/creators of all kinds much joy. And that's a great idea about donating LGBT books to the library.

Hee! Danke! I have something for you that I keep forgetting to mail, too. I am le fail.

I sent about 80% of them last year and ran out of stamps :/ I need to plan better this year on the stamps.

I freaking love sending cards. I hate getting bills so those Christmas cards are little spots of happiness in the midst of crap, yanno? I like providing that happiness. Must admit, I get something out of it.

Hee, yeah, I got the idea from my own library that asked for specific LGBT books. I figure, if I don't OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE any of the LGBT books I buy, I'll send them over there so maybe a LGBT kid won't feel so alone. My library doesn't have the funds for books at all let alone "niche" books so they put out a call for books for minorities and I thought, well, heck. I know a bunch of good ones.

Also YAYES ON LEAVING COMMENTS! You're so good about it, too. <3<3<3

Yay cards! I'm super behind on mine so I suspect they'll be more new years cards than anything. But! I have your addy so eventually you'll get a card from me.

Meanwhilst, I've filled out the poll with my new international addy (that's never going to get old).

Love your wish list - am definitely going to work on filling some of those. ♥

You are the best thing since sliced bread, must admit.

Thank you so much for these! YAYES! The Editors are one of life's happiest things, as far as I'm concerned. Have you listened to it?

I'd love a card! Do you still have my address? I haven't gone anywhere. Heh.

Be sure to leave a comment on my own post, if you haven't already:

Holiday cards

I do and I have postcards for you, too!

Preference on type of card? Religious, general, in between?

and will do!

No preference, although I confess I'm not uber-religious. Simple holiday cards are fine. Thanks!
