I'll cut to the chase, I need a new camera. I need yarn too, I always need yarn, but I really, really need a new camera. Don't bother the elves for anything overly fancy, a Canon 7D with a decent zoom lens will do ... it shouldn't set you back more than a couple of grand*. And I've been a very good girl, I promise!
Of course you'll need to wrap it carefully before shoving it into your sack, so might I suggest swaddling it in some of that yarn I always need. The elves should have no trouble rounding up a local musk ox or three, and they've clearly got the whole spinning thing nailed, with all the yarn that goes into the Christmas sweaters. So some qivuit then, agreed? Undyed, naturally. That would be marvellous, thanks Santa!
Actually, wrapping one of those sweaters around the yarn that's around the camera might be a good idea, for extra cushioning, just in case there's turbulence over Scotland or something. Hand knitted please, and less 'Sarah Lund in The Killing', more 'The kid in the Bon Iver music video', that would suit me just fine. But with pockets maybe, for those tickets to Iceland you promised last year but sadly 'forgot' to deliver?
I'll make sure I leave some port out with the mince pies (home made) and the carrots for the reindeer. Or we've some nice blackberry vodka, if you prefer.
PS I got the front tooth sorted so you can stand down on that score!

Santa needs to see a wish list if he's to know what to bring! So, what's on yours?
