A Christmas List? El Numero Eleventeen

As promised, here's G's list for 2004. There were some formatting issues, which I worked on, but didn't get completely hammered out. So the heck with it - here it is in imperfect form. Anytime there's a line of asterisks, it represents a comment that was crossed out. The comment after it is whatever was scrawled in the margins next to it.

A disclaimer. Everything on the list is meant to be humorous. It's not meant to be offensive to anyone, though I can see where some of it might offend some people. Deal with it. I didn't write it and take neither credit nor blame for the contents.

Hey! Some people (okay, so really just me) are sad that there's no hockey this year. I even worked out the perfect spring semester so as to minimize studying and maximize hockey time and then they go and blow it. Ungrateful you-know-whats.
