I could sit and write these all day. It's fun. Here are my first ones.

I wish people could love each other with God telling them to.

I wish my cat would come back. It's been six days now.

Has anyone asked for all their wishes to come true? I know it's cheating but that's what I'd do.

I wish aliens would come.

I wish either he was good to me or I could leave him.

I think vegetables should be bad for you.

Wishes get you nowhere. Don't wish for it man do it man right.

I wish we lived somewhere nice.

God I wish I could screw my boss. I think about him all the time.

There's a man who walks up and down our street shouting at night. I wish someone would help him.

Just realised the obvious error in my first wish above. Should be "without God telling them to". Duh.

My Dad told me that time flies by faster and faster as you get older. I wish he hadn't been right.

If I had a real wish I would give it to you honey. Because you need it more than I do.

I wish I had more interesting wishes to wish for

As threatened, some more:

I wish we could try on different lives before we choose one.

I wish everyone could be as happy as I am right now.

I wish I wasn't married.

I heard somewhere that if wishes were horses, we'd all ride.

I wish I knew how to tell him it's over.

I wish I didn't know what I know about my Dad.

I've always wanted to be able to time travel. It's so hard to believe history is real.

I wish I was Ant and Dec.

All I want is a bloody car that works.

I wish I was a mallard duck.

I wish I was grammatically correct.

I wish everyone would shut up.

I wish I knew how to fix a car.

I wish I didn’t live in the same world as Simon Cowell.

I wish Covent Garden actually was a garden.

I wish I could hear all the songs that Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain and John Lennon would have gone on to write.

I wish everyone would listen to me.

I wish I looked slightly less like Andrew Lloyd Webber

I wish that solar power transforms the prosperity and happiness of Africa

I wish when I was a student I had spent less time worrying about postmodernism and more time taking my clothes off

I wish people would stop complaining about politicians and do something political instead

I wish the War in Iraq had never happened and hope it's the last time Britain tries to police the world

I hope that climate change creates a vineyard in my back garden

I wish I could eat fresh oysters every week

I wish the working week was two days on, five days off

I wish my birthday wasn't in January because the weather is grim and everyone's either broke or detoxing

Wouldn't it be great if it was guaranteed that at least one wish would come true? How about this one?

Maybe we need a Ministry of Wishes

A few more for the pot...

I wish I could erase all my embarrassing moments.

I wish Obama had become President eight years ago.

I wish there was a ban on Merry Christmas by Slade that started around November time.

I wish Oasis would call it a day.

I wish my kids were still young enough to believe in Father Christmas.

I wish that some people had more to eat and others had less.

I wish that the pen really was mightier than the sword.

I wish they’d bring back the Routemaster bus.

I wish my dreams would come true. But maybe not those ones.

I wish the polar bears had more ice to frolic on.

I wish people would see that wishing is a waste of time. Don’t wish it. Do it.

I wish my clients would pay on time so I didn't have to keep LBAing them

I wish I could sell my house and move to Germany

I wish I spoke German

I wish my coal fire was more effective

I wish Morrissey was 25 again

I wish I was 25 again - but smarter

The end.

More from me. (By the way, none of mine are my own - or are so only by coincidence. I took this as a 'Someone else's shoes' project.)

I wish we could get past being Capulets and Montagues.

I wish I knew what I was doing.

There isn't enough sun.

Just once, I'd like a politician to listen.

Can I go back and start again?

I wish you were mine. Yes you, the blonde in the red coat and the fabulous boots.

If I could have one day back with him, just one, that's what I would wish.

I wish children never suffered, anywhere.

I see a lot of words, and not much action.

Just once, I wish the bus would come when it's supposed to.

I wish I'd valued my life before I had my accident.

I wish I'd seen this coming.

I've always wanted to be a bird. A big one. An eagle or a buzzard. Maybe reincarnation will help.

I wish Christmas would go away.

I wish I had someone to talk to instead of this box.

Sometimes, on those rare occasions when I'm up at dawn, the world seems like it's mine. The promise and anticipation of what the day might hold makes me feel like a child again. I wish every day was like that.

I wish I could fall in love again for the first time.

I wish for all the sand in Egypt and all the tea in China.

I wish I cared less about money.

Gordon Brown: I wish I'd known.

I could write short stories all day long.

Credit crunch was a type of cereal and nothing to stress about

My skinny jeans made me look skinny.

Rosie would let me put bunches in her pretty hair.

Strawberries, cheap wine, a cowboy hat and so much helpless laughter on the night the heating broke down. I'd love to feel that warmth again.

I guess I just wonder what she'd be like, what she could achieve, who she might love, without the learning difficulties. I wish I knew.

If Hotel Chocolat were an actual hotel, I'd move in permanently. Mmmmmmmm.

An if she came crawlin back, yeah, bangin on my door, cryin an tellin me she's all sorry an stuff, I'd just love to tell er where ter go, know what I mean? I mean, yeah, I just wanna tell er that. But she ain't comin back. Ever.

I wish God would give us one perfect day, when everyone everywhere could be happy.

Cinderella had it easy. I mean, if only putting up with a wicked stepmother and two bitchy sisters were all it took to find love - Christ, with my family I'd be in soulmate heaven by now.

I wish Santa can bring mummy a puppy and then she will smile again.

Hm. Wish I'd moisturised.

God, I miss smoking. Some days I wish I'd never started. Other days I wish I'd never stopped.

Why can't I fly south for the winter?

Blimey. I wish I'd said that.

I wish Robert Peston would go and live in a cave in a land far far away.

I can't wish it hadn't happened but I do wish people hadn't got hurt.

I wish I'd known then what I know now and that I still knew now what I knew then. What a know-all I'd be!

I wish I knew why 'knew' is spelled with a 'k'.

And why 'gnome' is spelled with a 'g'.

I wish my colleagues would realise that grammar does matter and pedantry is a good thing.

I wish cheese wasn't fattening.

Iwishity wishity woo

I wish i had a nintendo wii and a wii fit board. Please.

I wish my prince would come. Or my princess, I'm not prejudiced. Or maybe to have a bit more get up and go. Then I could be my own prince.

I wish January could be knee-deep in snow and February horizon to horizon cold blue and March windy with daffodils and April to come in like a lion and go our like a lamb and May to be floral and full of sex and June to blossom and July to blaze and August to be dripping with warm honey and gold and September to glow and October to shimmer with leaves and November to fog and firework and December to bring glad tidings.

hey rish,

only just seen this for some reason, here's a few contributions:

Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

I wish I could do all the stuff I want to do before time and other people get in the way.

Think of me before you go to sleep and when you wake up. Promise me.

Sense of things I wish I could make.

I wish I could say all the things I want to say.

I wish I wanted no more wishes.

I wish you all a very happy day.

I wish my legs were just an inch longer.

I wish comic book stories were real.

I wish every child had the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

I wish I could spend whatever I liked on the music I love.

I wish that cruelty to children would stop. FULL STOP.
