Your wish is granted. Instead, you consumed four boxes of Jujyfruits, two boxes of Dots, a whole bag of M&M's and six supersized Mountain Dews. You missed most of movie while in the bathroom.

I wish I could find the time to see LOTR:ROTK.

Granted, but you get stuck with the audience I had (Crying kids who had no clue about what was going on and getting up every 10 seconds to go to the bathroom)

I wish the holiday season was over already.

Done. You have your white Christmas, but it is acid filled and eats painted surfaces, including the paint on the new Volvo on being delivered to your house from a sweepstakes you didn't even know you'd entered.

I wish our company would ditch the 1.1 megapixel diskcraptastic camera we have, for a new 5.1 megapixel model.

You get the new camera and its given its own office and the title of planning director. The camera is busy attending meetings all day and you are not able to use it at all.

I wish that all the work I need to complete before I leave this position was already done!

I wish I had a new apartment.

Congratulations. You are now the proud tenant of a "new to you" ground level apartment on Central Avenue in Albany. I'll let you guess the neighborhood.

I wish Christmas with my inlaws wasn't so centered on the quantity of gifts given.

Done, now time spent with them is measured against time spent with your parents.

I wish my parents weren't convinced we spend more time with my inlaws, or that it mattered either way!

Done, but now they don't care if you ignore them, because they have Alzheimer and they forgot about you!

I wish Christians kept Christmas for themselves alone.... and not try to shove it on the rest of the world that doesn't give a damn.

KaPOW! You now have a vacuum. Unfortunately for you and your office, it doesn't suck. It blows!

I wish I could remember to bring my holiday cd's to the office.

Ka-plow! Granted, but now there's 40 feet of snow, and Santa's caught in a traffic jam on I-90.

I wish I weren't afraid of flying so I could visit relatives overseas.

Granted. Thanks to the 12 Step program at Phobia 'R Us, you are now cured. However, your overseas relatives now expect to see you at every major holiday and all vacations.

I wish my asthma would just go away.

Zap - Tranplanner and his brother show up and replace your kitchen floor for you. You are now stuck with a mosaic tile floor depicting the defeat of the French on the Plains of Abraham.

(actually, my brother and I - and Mrs. Tranplanner - put in an awesome slate floor in our kitchen).

I wish that the kitchen store I have to go to tonight for my wife's last gift was not so far away.

EDIT - Donk you thief!

Poof! Done--you find a fabulous kitchen boutique two blocks away from your office--but all items are at a 200% markup, and the item your wife wants is only available in avocado green or harvest gold.

I wish there was a good, cheap, fast sushi place downtown. And that I had time to go there.

Bing! Done... It's right next door, along with a bevy of other big box stores in your new "non-conforming residential use in a commercial zone" home. You can hardly pull out of your driveway without help from a traffic cop, and the city refuses to put in a signal.

I wish my engineer would finish the stuff I told him to have ready for me 3 days ago!

You find the password "REDRUM" etched on the underside of the desk, every email you read contains a strange reference to oatmeal.

I wish this game was rejuvinated!

Your employer says "yes", but the question is... "Should I be looking for another job?"

I wish I didn't have to go out and take a bunch of digital pictures today...

Sure enough you drop the $500 digital camera and are unable to take digital pictures but your employer charges you the full purchase price for a new one.

I wish I could spend all day every day watching Hogans Heroes and Mannix reruns.

Wish granted but your B&W TV is flickering in and out while the high pitched squeaking is so loud you have to plug your ears.

I wish the my cats would stop waking me up at 5:30 am to be fed :-@

Granted, but michaelaskis invites himself over to watch with you on the love seat. Mr. Ducky gets mad because he thought this was the day you were going to spend quality time with him;)

Granted, but now they wake you up a half hour earlier.

I wish I had a beer right now to ease the pain of having to hear the gossip crew talk about fake rolexes and low carb diets;)

Ganted, but it is a low carb, non-alcoholic beer that most folks here would deem to be "swill".

I wish I had a enough money to keep doing what I believe in and be spared the need to work for a living.

*POOF* Granted! But the money you found is from a very angry drug cartel, and you have to do what you believe in... while on the run.


I wish Santa Clause would bring me fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive golden rings...

Yes, when I said that, I did have visions of the first wish (er, second, I guess -- the hamburger was the first) in "Bedazzled": "I wish I were rich and powerful and married to (whatsername)" ....

......"I'm a Columbian Drug Lord?!!!" :-c

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing! Paid off! By... the insurance company after the accident. Unfortunately, the pay off isn't even close to what you need to buy a comparable vehicle. The good news is the air bag-to-the-face made you a much more handsome fellow!


I wish the *&^%$ at the OECDD would send me the final paperwork for close out my old CDBG grant.

You return on monday to your office to see it crammed with the paperwork he sent you.

your wish is granted but the hickups are replaced by uncontrolled eruptions from the other end.

I wish Chicago would have a real snowstorm so that the goofball TV weather guys would not have to pretend that 2" of snow in Chicago is a big deal!

Your wish is granted. Weather reporters from around the globe flock on the city to report when the snow really begins to fly at the end of April. The storm lasts several days, and a record-cold summer keeps it from melting before the snows begin again in September and global warming is debunked as a myth.

I wish radio stations would not play that godawful Christmas music. Does anybody really want to hear Sprinsteen singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town?"

As you surf for a radio station all you seem to be able to find is really vulgar rap music. And listening harder you hear them that the guest spot on the next record is going to be, who else...Springsteen.

I wish I could find a really great job locally before Christmas.

Kazaaaaaaaam! Not a single Christmas song can be heard on the radio.... because every station has been playing "The Monster Mash" around the clock ever since Halloween.

I wish I could get all of my CDBG contracts closed outbefore the end of the year so I could spend my more time doing neighborhood planning.

POOF! Your wish has been granted. Your focus on one (1) thing was so intense that you thought of nothing else from 12-20-04 through 3-14-05. You missed Christmas, New Year's Day, and most of the Michael Jackson trial. Because of that focus adventure you have been placed in an asylum.

I wish that the Detroit Tigers would win the World Series in 2005.

Poof! They win it all! With scab players, since there was an NHL style lock-out. Oh, and you had so much work, you didn't catch a single game.


I wish I had the $25K I need to finish my project...

Poof your wish is granted but it is your EX that is doing the work so you must endure that grief.

I really hope that Budgie and Rumpy behave themselves at the Florida laefest and RJ does not wear his bathing suit thong. For the love of god, none of us need to endure that or less clothing. ;)

A truckload of Benadryl arrives on your doorstep and the kids take it like they were eating candy.

I wish I could have a gardner take care of my yard.
