One of the most popular things on this blog is my wish list – it gets lots of visits. But, alas, no one actually responds to that list. I guess everyone thinks that someone else will. (there is one person who sends a donation about once a month, not related to the list.)
Well, it’s near Holiday Time. And like every year, I’ll put together a Christmas list. I still haven’t heard from my kids, but I haven’t given up hope on that. I still don’t have housing, but I’ve been told that I’m “next” on the list. So there’s a little hope there as well.
As for all the other things on the list, I guess that’s regular “gift bags for the homeless” stuff.
Now that the weather is getting colder out, I could really use some gift cards to Starbucks or Dunn Bros. With those I can get inside somewhere, so to stay warm, have coffee and use the wifi – McDonalds also has wifi, and gift certificates too – and they open at 5:30am!
Right now, I’m getting the Chess bug and have been playing a good bit. What I would really like to have is one of those U.S. Chess Federation regulation chess sets, with plastic weighted pieces and a vinyl roll up board and carry case. It would be easy enough for me to carry around, as well as play and practice with it. If you ever go to Chess.com, look for me. Of course, my screen name is thehomelessguy.
