Everyone! Meet Alexis Makayla!*

I got her at Burger King along with my five-piece chicken tenders meal. I have not been there in weeks so it is nice to see that they have not switched their kids' meal toys. I have not yet had the chance to collect all eight Cabbage Patch Minis!

Alexis Makayla and me are going to be best friends forever. She sits on my desk at work and brightens my life. Granted I have to switch desks every day so I will have to carry her with me but that is a small price to pay for eternal friendship and life-brightening. She is much cuter in real life than in her picture and I am sure she would say the same of me if she saw a picture of me, as I am not at all photogenic. So we share that pain. I want to get a small brush, as for a Barbie (she and I have great disdain for Barbies, but their brushes are useful), and brush her hair with it. Can you buy Barbie brushes individually, or do you have to buy a Barbie? I don't want a Barbie! Why does she not come with a hair brush all her own? Why must I put dollars in the coffers of Mattel just because my best friend needs a hair brush? It's a travesty! I must write to all the papers!

Isn't she nice? She wants to hug you. Virtual hugs!

...back to work with me.

*Why does Cabbage Patch tell you your dolls' names? I like picking my own dolls' names. I would have named her Cassie.

Dear God, I am old. Yeah, I remember the agony of acquiring a Cabbage Patch Kids doll -- for my girlfriend's daughter.
