Hump day – of the week, not the raffle. We are now three quarters through the Twelve Days of Christmas. The “big day” is getting nearer. Yesterday, we went out and bought a Christmas tree. In my house, following German tradition, the Christmas tree is only installed on the morning of Christmas Eve. This year, I am thinking of a red and silver theme. Should’ve really made more of those little ornaments that I gave away yesterday. We have a winner for them – and the two stamps for a photo request to RA. It is jholland. Congrats!!!! I think I still have your address 😉 – the ornaments and stamps will go into the post today. Draw protocol: click seal on the right.
The year is coming to a close – let’s look forward to another year, shall we? Today I bring you…
1 RA Desk Calendar
Not really that discreet, as it only contains images of RA. But cute in size (about 9x10cm) and very handy, as it comes in a closeable jewel case that acts as a stand. A bit like a CD case. Maybe something for a desk at work? You’ll recognise the pictures
– shamelessly plugging my own photography here – the best of Guylty’s lens. To make the raffle worth while, Hariclea is throwing in another bag of Thornton’s chocolate. Yum!!! All you’ve got to do to get your hands on this, is leave a comment below. The raffle is open until 7am, 22 December 2016.
My daily posts have become a bit of a soap box… So this is today’s wisdom: I was ruminating about being a fan, fandom, and specifically fangirling for RA recently. Following the career of an actor. Maintaining a blog about him. Creating fan art. Travelling to see the actor at work or on events. In particular, I was wondering whether there is a point, seeing that it is a one-way
interaction, at least in terms of the subject of my fangirling. I’ve been faltering a bit on that account, if truth be told. And then I came across a little nugget that seemed oddly appropriate – for my ruminations, my recent trip, and for this time of year, even.
other my favourite words: expectation management. There is a point to it all. Not for an acknowledgment or a reward. But just for the fun of doing it, without justifying it to anyone. There. The sentimental truth of the matter. Must be the time of year that makes me soppy…
Leaving you with the customary recap and small print: Raffle for 1 RA desk calendar + bag of Thornton’s chocolate, open to all until 7am GMT Dec 22, 2016. The raffle items will be sent anywhere in the world, no P&P costs either. The winner’s address will be passed on to Hariclea to facilitate despatch of the chocolate. To enter the raffle, just a leave a comment below. Winner to be announced in Day 10 post of 12DX, tomorrow.
Love and best of luck to you all!
