Happy Holidays, Monsieur Hippo!

Originally posted December 28, 2008

I meant to post this a few days ago, but with it being the holidays and all, it’s been a bit busy ’round here. Better late than never, though, to show you the CUTEST thing I think I’ve ever seen.

Capucine, the little girl in the video above – who the brazen mavens over at Jezebel have taken to calling “Amelie Jr.” – makes me want to move to Paris and have little French-speaking babies. Or maybe just become an au pair. Do yourself a favor and watch the very imaginative story she tells in the video, then scroll down to read her letter to Père Noël for Christmas, as transcribed by her Mère.

Père Noël,

I would like a nice gift, and I would like to see you.

Because I have been very good throughout the year. I have listened well, I have cleaned up my room by myself and I had fun at school, and I have played with my friends.

Also, I am going to move, I will have a nice house and a mezzanine.

I eat everything, but sometimes, I don’t.

Then I would like to see you for Christmas and Halloween and talk to you. I would like to sing you a song-poem. When is winter coming ?

Also I would like to talk to you, but if you leave and go far away, I would like to see you in your house.

If I hug you, your beard will not sting, it will only tickle.

And I would like to go into your sleigh. How will I do that ? Do I have to climb up the trees ?



I can’t stand the cuteness. I don’t know that I was ever so innocent and sweet as a child. I feel like I emerged from the womb a sarcastic little spazz.

Merry Christma-Hannu-Kwanza-ka everybody!
