Please Santa?
Ms. Thang has discovered the beauty of Christmas. Well, at least the commercial side of it. She is under the impression that the Sears Wishbook is her own personal shopping list. We had to explain to her that Santa only has so much room in his sleigh, and that other boys and girls needed presents too.

But when she started asking for her most recent must have, we had our eyebrows raised.

'What would you like for Christmas?', we asked.

She looked up with her big blue eyes and said, 'A family.'

'A family? What do you mean a family? You have one?'

She looked puzzled. 'No,' she said. 'A REAL family. One that's ALL mine. One with a mommy and a daddy and other kids too'

Poor little Matchstick girl.

Turns out this is what she wants:

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer trapped in a corporate buyer's body. Steel shopping by day, and freeflowing prose by night. One day I hope to have the nights become my days, but am intimidated by the sheer amount of people who share my dream. So I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
