Tell me what you want





I'll tell you what I want,
what I really, really want.



I want a purple streak in my hair
and to find my own special sense of flair.


I want a tiny tattoo in a hidden place
and I want to drape a canopy bed in lace.


I want to pack my bags and go live somewhere exotic
to watch sunsets and listen to waterfalls until I'm drunk and hypnotic.

I want to write and write and write until I find myself
and never end up boring and old on a dusty shelf.



Tell me what YOU want,
what you really, really want.

I had the weekend all to myself, well I want the whole week to myself now, no work, and just do what I want to do :) Good to dream sometimes!

LOVE this, Rhea...

I want to fly to an exotic place and sit next to you on the plane. (That would trump Ida-Ho, you know.)

And GET THE TATTOO. You now how I feel about mine.

Screwed Up Texan said...

I want to go lay on a bed with crisp, white sheets inside of a sunlit, bright bedroom that faces the sea on an exotic island. I want to feel the tepid breeze through my hair, hitting my face just right, while propped up with three or four pillows and eating cadbury chocolate eggs. Oh, and I never gain one pound while doing so.

$500 grand would be nice too.

Roxane said...

I want a 5 day weekend, a 2 day work week and the winning lottery numbers :)

Kat said...

I want Posh spice to smile.

And I want to sprinkle fairy dust on my food so that it will take away the calories.

And I want to travel to exotic locales, too...

I want my stepdaughter to apologise to her Dad and ask him alone to walk her down the aisle, sadly I know it won't happen!

Now knowing you, we can expect that purple streak to appear soon!

CrystalChick said...

I want to catch up on blogging and blog reading. I managed to post today but who knows when that will happen again. I get to visit some of my favs each day but certainly not all. :*(
I want to get my house really clean. Ah, but then a few days later it will be messy again.
I want to learn how to ride a motorcycle. I'm too afraid right now, but some day it would amaze my husband. He rides. It's all out of my comfort zone now, but never say never, right??

Have a nice day!

p.s. How are you liking LOST these days?? I'm still loving it!!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Practically speaking, I want to get the job I am going on a 2nd interview for today. But I also want to continue to pursue teaching cooking lessons from my home at the same time so that in a few years that's all I do. Haven't mentioned that to anyone yet but what the heck.......

Fantasy speaking, your idea sounds great - exotic place, cocktails in hand, waves of the ocean crashing, Happy hour at a tiki bar every minute of the day. Sunsets lasting for 1 hour. Ahhh..............

carrielt said...

I want the wind to stop blowing! Two weeks of 30-50 mph winds are driving me CRAZY!!!!

I want to quit my day job and write all night. Do you know anyone who would hire me? Seriously!

Rocksee said...

To move to Alaska. More than anything I've ever wanted in the whole wide world.

Somedays I feel like we are close.. and other days I feel like life just keeps stackin the chips against us.

Cristin said...

I want everyone to LEAVE. ME. ALONE. Really... to GO. AWAY. FAR. AWAY. Just long enough for me to miss them... then they can come back....

Misty Dawn said...

Really? Anything? Even if it's greedy? (I have a serious problem with being greedy)... O.K. here goes...

I want to see Rhea's purple streak in her hair, cuz I love Rhea and I love purple.

I want a really awesome zoom lens for my camera and an awesome photo printer.

I want Martina McBride's new CD (LOVE that woman).

I want to apply for the job that just opened (it's all photography, but my conscience won't allow me to consider leaving the department I'm in now... Or, better yet, I want to make money with nature photography because it's what I truly love more than anything.

I want more belly button rings :-P

I want a purple dragonfly or butterfly necklace.

I want to visit Tammy in Canada and then take her with me to Australia for a dream vacation.

I want to go fishing with and hiking with my daddy and the wolf... NOW

OK, OK I'll quit sabotaging your comments now.
