In the comments to my penultimate Christmas post, Mallrat replied:
I have a great idea for an internet company - a Christmas matchmaking service where you swap parents. the only thing standing in people's way is guilt...I'd quite happily take on other families' neuroses if someone could hang out with mine. what a shame christmas can't be staggered to enable that....
Being a thinker, I've been playing with this idea. I've been thinking it could be like an office Kris Kringle. You draw a new family out of a hat and spend Christmas with them. It could work. It could work as well.
Can I dibs a family that buys each other Ipods?
