Is it too much to ask for?

Dear Santa,
   
      This year, I would really like for you make it stop snowing. The only time I'd like to see snow is on Christmas day. Please keep it away from me for the 364 remaining days of the year.

      I would like one year paid leave from work...with bonus. And when I return to work, I would like a raise.

     If you cannot provide me with the year off from work, then I would like a clone to go to work for me. I will stay home in my warm house with my dog and blog all day.
 
     I would like to be the most awesome blogger in the world.  
   
     I would like to eat as many cookies as I wish and my weight not be affected by them whatsoever.

     I would like to own, but not operate, my very own library.

     I would really like to groceries to be free. Or at least cheaper. Like $.50 for a gallon of milk.

     I would like gas to also be a lot cheaper and to be automatically refillable. Just push a button on your car and BAM you have a full tank. The bill is mailed to you. Or not...that would be cool, too.
    
    Oh, yeah, and world peace and feed the hungry and all that. Also, bring our troops home.

Thanks,
Girl that was VERY good this year.
