Dear Santa,

Do you think if I type a letter to Santa it will carry more weight?

I mean, it takes way more time to type it out, apply bandaids (to your fingers which were mangled when you had to pry them out from between the keys), find an envelope, scrounge around for a stamp and then drive it to the post office than just whipping out an email. I hear that effort and style count with the big man.

  8. Well, I'd give you an A for effort! Your table looks lovely all spiffed up for the jolly old feller. I think you're onto something with the typed letter. The letter I posted on my blog last year didn't grab his attention.

    Although the post also contained a little white lie. :@
