The most delicious and perhaps sickening visual eavesdropping you will encounter all day: someone found a very lavish Christmas wish list that was left on a train in DC -- so highly specific that it includes links of where to find the exact, precise objects of desire, such as an Hermes Avalon blanket in Orange, gold glitter Louboutins, a Givenchy Nightingale handbag (there are at least 4 handbags on the list)?on and on. Conservatively totaled, obtaining the items would set someone back $20K. Sad. But what's sadder are the notations that indicate that some complicit jellyfish is hard at work, trying to make someone's Christmas wishes come true. [Gawker]
