all i want for chirstmas

I will be getting my first x-mas present by weeks end. My dad informed me they sent me an early x-mas gift. I am so giddy I can hardly contain myself..

Not only am I looking forward to the gift, but I am also looking forward to the very handsome delivery guy...I mean..holy shit.

Really, a prefect specimen he is...

Nice arms.

Nice Face.

It appears he has nice abs, I mean from what I see with my xray vision.

So I am waiting patiently...for both.


When I got out my holiday crap, I came across some X-mas cards from my grandma and grandpa...made me sad..I will not ever in this lifetime get a card with grandpa's name on it.



As I was fiddling around my favorite website, I saw this...

This is a special , limited edition guitar put out by you guessed it..Def Leppard.

Its only being sold at Target, and we all know how much of a Target whore I am.

Its only 199.00...but u need to buy it with your Target Redcard in order to be entered into the contest.

Holders of the Target REDcard can now win a trip to London when they use their card to buy a Def Leppard-styled Lyon by Washburn guitar at Target stores for $199! The guitar, which would make a great Christmas gift for future rock stars, comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Phil Collen. Buying the guitar enters you for a chance to win 2 premium-class flight tickets to London, limo service and 2 nights at a luxury hotel -- but the greatest part of the prize is that it includes a private guitar lesson by Phil Collen! For more information about the contest and 19 other exclusives in Target's "WOW OR NEVER" special, check your Target circular or go to http://wow.target.com/.

Now mind you, I have never wanted a guitar, nor have I ever held one..I am more of a lead singer..drummer kinda gal, like Don Henley..or even Phil Collens.

( and Phil Collen and Phil Collens are two different people...phil collens is in Genesis, Phil Collen from Lepps..are we clear?)

Mind you I have never held a drum stick either...but I just know I would so rock at it..

Anyway, I am stewing because I do not have a Target card...I am against the use of credit cards and crap such as that. If you don't have the dough to buy it out of your checking account, you cant afford to buy it..

So all my cards have dust on them....

But I am willing to call the ole MIL, whom just retired out of Target...I know she has a Redcard...

hello, mother in law.

Its a limited edition rocking guitar with 6 strings, a solid, um, formation, comes complete with an certificate of Authtenticty, gets me entered in a contest, and the big bonus, it wont shoot my eye out.


I want that damn guitar more then I want to eat dinner...


Jamie Dawn said...

MORE than dinner??!!
Wow!! You must really want that guitar.
It matches your tattoo.
If you won that trip, you'd die from excitement.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Yarn Tails said...

If I had a redcard I would so get it for you... Just so you would have a chance! It is one kick ass guitar and my son says he could go for one of them. If he didnt already have one I would get it for him.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Choppzs said...

Me and Target card would be very, very bad.

I hope you get your MIL to help you out. I think I'd keel over before I'd ask my MIL for anything! lol

Flip Flop Momma said...

yea, I so aint asking her...no way...it was a nice thought..

but damn, it would be freaking nice..

Working Mom said...

How sad am I that when I saw that guitar in Target Sunday I thought of you?

pack of 2 said...

We don't have a red card either but when we went in there last week they tried to sign us up.

I SO loved that band back in the day...I still do but not like you:)

Good luck & I hope you win it all!

Katie said...

Good luck! If your MIL doesn't work out, we can talk.

IamDerby said...

Thanks for the lesson about Phil Collins vs. Phil Collens because um I didnt know... hanging my head in shame. (ok shhhh i will admit it....i only listen to redneck music)

The Egel Nest said...

The "Jack" guitar is awesome...

I will send you one drumstick to "cymbalize" your Rick Allen love affair :)

You so need to get that guitar and enter the contest!

1 plus twins said...

oh you so need to ask you mil for her card! or what about applying for the card (they usually give a discount for opening a new card, then you would get it cheaper) then turn around and pay it off right then and there, then cut the card up and get rid of it. (we are the same way. we have no credit cards at all except the bank debit card.)

Flip Flop Momma said...

oh I am workin on it sweety;)

well its the whole princepal of the whole thing...I think its a crock of shit I need to buy it with a target card in order to enter..but i am willing to enter with someone elses card..

(of course i will pay for it though;)

metalmom said...

If I brought one more guitar into the house my old man would kill me! I'd love to get that one though!!

Tom said...

Flip Flop Momma said...

BUT its a limited edtion, they would understand:)

well I dont wanna take up the guitar, or accordain, just want it to have it:)

I just think it would like nice in my living room, or strapped to my waist:)

Rachel said...
