All I Want For Christmas is…Love?



OK, so up until this year, I have been the girl who’s always so giving (And I still will be) but never asked for any presents. Well…there’s a saying in Turkish that roughly translates to “If a baby doesn’t cry, it doesn’t get tit”


Or something like that. I was at the mall this weekend and I realized that as much as I give, there is some pretty stuff that I want for myself and a couple of my good friends have told me that I need to be more selfish. Let’s face it…the holiday season is all about getting the wrong present, and kindly asking for the gift receipt so you can go get what you REALLY want…OK OK…it’s about family and love and giving and all that too but that’s what it should be about the other 11 months of the year.

If you’re going to be giving presents, it’s about making the other person happy but the real deal is this…it has to be something practical. Who doesn’t love a lovely fruit basket that you won’t open up and regift for the next party? I don’t. When I give gifts, I like to be practical. One of the favorite gifts I’ve gotten for someone was a Punisher belt buckle and belt for his birthday that I found in a tiny mall in NC. It’s practical and it’s personal.

You know what else is personal and practical?

GIFT CARDS! All I want for Christmas are GIFT CARDS!

Lemme break it down for you…There are things I need. I’m a girly girl lately so I want the make-up and the shoes and the clothes and A CAMERA! I’m a website owner so I need the money to keep my website running and do it without charging my writers any money. I’m a student so I need money for school and books and GAS and maintaining my car. So, if you’re wondering what to get PQ for Christmas…let me help you out.

1) Sephora Gift Card: I should never be allowed in that store unsupervised. HAVE YOU SEEN HOW PRETTY IT IS?! I don’t want you picking out my make up and lotions for me so just get me the gift card and we’re good, ok? I need the glittery, shimmery, nice smelling lotions.

2) Victoria’s Secret Gift Card: Here’s the thing. My boobs have grown over the last two years so I need new bras and I don’t want any creepy men sending me lingerie. Speaking of which, what is up with those men leaning against the rail outside of a Victoria’s Secret at the mall, just staring into the store? CREEPS!

3) Best Buy Gift Card: I’m out of a digital camera and my phone just isn’t cutting it anymore. I also love my gadgets!

4) Borders Gift Card:OH MY GOD! BOOKS! ‘Nuf Said.

5) Visa/Mastercard/AmEx Gift Cards: Give the gift of CASH! That way, I can pay the hosting fees for the site.

6) Meeting with an agent: I would LOVE to get my poetry published. How about you do that for me?

7) Twilight: Anything and everything Edward Cullen & Twilight related…I’ll take without any complaints.

8 ) Penguins: I love Penguins. I’ll take any and all penguin gear. *giggle*

9) A Purple iPod Nano…I figured I could throw stuff in here.

10) A rent-free apartment. What…a girl can dream, can’t she?

So tell me…what do YOU want this year? Don’t give me that bull about being grateful for any gift you get. This is the time of practicality…We all NEED things…so how about asking for them?

    I just want people to donate to my site for Christmas. I’m broke as a joke but I’m the same way with Lexi; her ass is spoiled when it comes to books.

    Make sure you very clearly state what your email is too, PQ. You know how some bitches be gettin’ that shit wrong as hell.

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:14 pm

    Sephora is like crack for girly-girls.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:16 pm

    No shit. I’ve never gone into a Sephora before because I like my makeup pretty simple.

    I went in Saturday to get the stuff Tara recommended and nearly died.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:16 pm

    I’m broke too…If it wasn’t for Courtni, I wouldn’t be able to keep the site going…lol

    Yeah…I can’t believe she sent my card to the wrong address…genius.

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:17 pm

    yeah. i bought some Dior mascara and literally want to hump it off my eyelashes.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:19 pm

    I use Estee Lauder mascara.

    I can’t step foot in Sephora again…not without supervision.

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:24 pm

    no you will blow your entire paycheck.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:25 pm

    And I can’t do that because I need to move out.


  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:27 pm

    Yes. Apartment first. Then internet. Then cable. (duh HOUSE and HEROES) Then furniture. THEN sephora.

    Prioritize. Unfortunately, Sephora aint goin anywhere.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:29 pm

    You know what I need before all that?

    A Suga-Daddy.

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:36 pm

    YES. Then you can spoil me. 😀

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:40 pm

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:42 pm


    Hello Pot, I would like to introduce you to Kettle.

    What was that Pot? Yes. Kettle IS black. You are quite observant.


  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:44 pm

    *rolls eyes*

  • pecosa November 3, 2008, 3:46 pm

  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:47 pm

    you are fucking spoiled. look in the mirror lately?


  • Susan November 3, 2008, 3:48 pm

    I love Juicy stuff, and Coach stuff, and well name brand stuff. I like feeling special wearing it though i would never spend that kind of money on me. I also want a Cannon Rebel XS Digital Camera, Anything Kurt Halsey. I love penguins too and hes got some cute penguins playing insturments, very cute.

    i dont really like gift cards unless they are like here i know you like books so heres a gift card to a book store or like you said victoria secrets. or soemthing like that but like a 15 dollar gift card for a movie idk i just find gift cards so inpersonal. atleast find me something id like.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:51 pm

    Yeah, I mean gift cards don’t HAVE to be impersonal…If you’re going to get a gift card, get creative but they’re practical.

    Ooooh…I wouldn’t spend money on brand names even for other people…LOL

    I definitely want another Sony Cybershot…those cameras are just SO pretty.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:51 pm

    I don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 3:51 pm


  • WickedCourtni November 3, 2008, 3:53 pm

    you wouldnt.

  • pecosa November 3, 2008, 4:03 pm

    well, there’s the bebe gift card, the express gift card, the ALDO gift card, the Target for essential items and the American Express black card so I can buy me as many designer shoes and handbags as I want!

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 4:06 pm

    See, it wasn’t all the same…I cannot shop from Bebe…and oh my god, it’s been forever since I stepped foot in an ALDO…I prefer Macy’s because it’s got all sorts of brands…LOL

  • Susan November 3, 2008, 4:40 pm

    Youre right giftcards are practical but sometimes i think its a cop out and a last min idea. However i did recommend getting a gift card to my boyfriend for his friends house warming party i was like you dont know what they have they havent asked for anything this way they can get something for their house they they need/want. it worked.

    lol no i wont buy namebrands for other people but if they want to get them for me thats fine.

    yeah i like the silver sony cybershot… its nice!

  • Jan S November 3, 2008, 5:07 pm

    Gift cards are good but I want fame, fortune can come later. Of course I am hoping that I won’t get laid off this year right before the holidays like I was 2 years ago.

  • Melanie November 3, 2008, 6:46 pm

    I love Hastings gift cards. It’s a movie/book store and I love getting new books!

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 6:52 pm


    Books = Rock

  • PrincessQ November 3, 2008, 6:53 pm

    Ooh…that would be bad. What’s your job now?

    I actually want the fortune first. I can always get the fame.

  • Jaime November 3, 2008, 9:14 pm

    Gift cards are my favorite gift ever. FAVORITE.

  • PrincessQ November 4, 2008, 10:02 am

    Mine too!

    What are some of your favorite stores?

  • Jan S November 4, 2008, 1:52 pm

    I work in IT/engineering. I believe that fortune comes from fame. The only fame that can come from fortune is if you win the lottery or rob a bank.

  • wovoka November 4, 2008, 10:22 pm

    Gift cards make great gifts!

    Maybe I’ll send you a couple…:)

    I just want things to continue moving in the direction that they are; that would be good enough for me.


  • PQ November 5, 2008, 9:49 am

    I think 2009 will be a good year for you 🙂


  • wovoka November 5, 2008, 2:13 pm

    Having you as my friend has already helped make 2008 a better year.

    I’m just sayin’…

  • LindaLou November 5, 2008, 9:40 pm


    I freaking LIVE there!

  • LindaLou November 5, 2008, 9:41 pm

    Seriously, for Christmas we can keep things simple:

    Vodka and Emeralds.

  • Pineapple November 7, 2008, 9:58 am

    I need a collection of earphones. I can never find mine and have to buy new ones. I’ll have them attached to my iPod, take them off to hook it to speakers or my car stereo, and POOF they disappear.

  • PrincessQ November 7, 2008, 10:24 am

    I’ll take the Vodka
