Fortune Friday 7.16.10: WANTED: Genie



“If your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted.”

Why should my desires not be extravagant for them to be granted?  Dreams are one of the few free things in this life so I say, feel free to dream big and dream away!  Besides, extravagance and simplicity are all relative.

So....here are a few things I desire today....

...to weigh 30lbs less, although I'd settle for just 10lbs in the meantime
...for all the washed clothes in the house to be magically folded or ironed
...a $5000 shopping allowance or gift cards for the Container Store, Bed Bath & Beyond and Ikea
...a bag of Lindt Lindor Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Truffles all for myself (which won't make me gain back the 10 or 30lbs I would've already lost!)
...true universal healthcare for all citizens of the world
...and of course, world peace.

I'm sure this list will be different in the next few moments but for now, at this moment, that is it.  Are there any available genies out there?....anyone????

I'd love to hear about your own wishes!  Would you care to share with me your top 5 for the day?

    1. Excellent health for my loved ones
    2. A fulfilling part time international development job void of political intrigues
    3. Quick, cheap, and direct flights to the US and Phils from Nepal.
    4. A beach house
    5. A boat

    In truth, i struggled to think of more wishes beyond my 3rd... I figure with the first 3 wishes, I'd be happy, pero i think I'd be VERY happy if I get the 4th and 5th as well. :-)
