wish list '08

my wish list this year is pretty simple and straightforward - gift cards galore please! i'm like rachel from friends; kinda picky, hard to shop for and notorious for getting rid of things unworthy of my closet or home. so to make things real easy for my friends & family, here are some of my favorite places to spend money, starting off with the places who need things way more than i do. i'll take care of bringing home the creature comforts i want and need with my own $$$...

favorite charities - would LOVE a donation in my name (or meatball's) to these wonderful places! and FYI the bill & melinda gates foundation is my favorite of all, but they don't accept individual donations.
