… and not my ovaries [official theme tune here]
I have decided to officially declare this week “Fandom Love Week”! I intend to blast off lots of love, smother you in shrines and put a spotlight on the people in this fandom who make this whole fangirling-over-RA thing so special.
So if you don’t wanna see any of that – stay away.
Yesterday I kicked off with Helen – and completely forgot to ask you to give her some love. She may only be a commentator in RAworld, but she maintains a Facebook page for her business, Seahorse Studio. You really ought to take a look – you might find this little fella on the right who will probably make an appearance at some point in a shrine *ggg*
Today, however, I got two more packages. Let’s start with the one that had to travel longer. Remember, she of the no-need-for-a-RAPS attitude? Ha! Well, dear Mimi had packed a parcel for me again, and what I forgot to do yesterday when I opened Helen’s package, I did today. I recorded my reaction.
Jeepers Creepers, this is getting self-centred beyond belief. Just because I knew I was gonna make some funny noises and I wanted to hear them for myself. So, this is what it sounds like when Guylty’s ❤ goes *pop!*
charming accent again, and some rustling and mumbling. But much more importantly, there is Pop! Thorin.
I am not lying when I say I have been intermittently hugging and smooching the little fella all day long. He’s totally, totally won my heart with his big black eyes, his cutesy braids and his determined little fist. Lalalalalove him. And can’t thank Mimi enough for this gift – I had coveted him so much, yet never made any move to order him.
How could I *order* his majestic majesty around, anyway?
I must find a way to shrinelessly thank Mimi. Maybe by linking again to her brilliant initiative, The Secret Origins of Good Readers, the pro-literacy project she is involved in and that will return to the Cons of Cons, ComicCon, in July this year. (Here’s a link to the SOGR-panel on April’s WonderCon) If any readers are based near San Diego or are planning to attend ComicCon, this looks like an interesting session, particularly if you are an educator and/or a parent interesting in spreading the love of reading.
Ok, for a little bit of interactive fun
after all my egocentric gushing – there are three RAPS ready to be revealed on this blog. Which next?
Off to kiss Pop! Thorin now :-x. Ta-da!
