I am in celebratory mood this morning. It’s weigh-in day, and I have just broken my first milestone, which makes me very, very happy. My click finger is itching really badly… (I’ll spare you the diet talk; if you want to read why I’m ready to click, check my post on RABBBWW.) Moreover, I found out last night that my job at my English client is being significantly consolidated. When they suggested that my workload be increased, they asked me the most dreaded of all questions: “What would you charge for that?” Typical woman, I find it very difficult to sell myself, and after much deliberation I finally told them that if they double my workload, I’d expect to be paid double. The fee has been accepted. I’m very happy.
Buoyed by all that, the celebratory mood extends into my RActivities. After much clicking and searching on Audible’s website yesterday (my audio and ad recommendations will be f*cked forever…), Richard’s latest audio work has just been released. Despite mild reservations, Wanderlust has already been downloaded into my audio library. I totally admit it here: I am a bit of a fan whore. I’ll give everything a try, as long as Richard is in it. 😁 I haven’t had the opportunity to listen yet, but even if this turns out to be trash, at least it will provide me with 8 hours and 48 minutes of audio distraction on the daily power walk that I needed an incentive to get into. That could be split into 12 acoustically enhanced daily walks. That’s taking Wanderlust literally – I can’t wait!
So, yeah, even before the release of Wanderlust I had decided to mark Richard’s departure into the light *coughs* genre with a small little shrine. Note: This is definitely going to be SFW, despite the expected eargasm… Yeah, well, whatever gets the muse going. I can’t really choose. It either happens – or it doesn’t.
But lately it has been happening in full swing. Since making this shrine, I have already finished two more. Hooray! So here we go…
This one was made with Richard’s latest audio release in mind. You wouldn’t necessarily think so from the outside of the shrine:
Just some love hearts. For those who ❤ ❤ ❤ audiobooks. And the man who reads them.
There’s Richard reading in his little love booth… What you can’t see, is the decoration ‘inside his audio booth’ – the various covers of the audio work he has done to date. I think this calls for a video intervention…
So yes, all of this work, read by *that* voice, can be considered a…
Richard as reader. Definitely worth a little shrine. Even without a candle.
This little shrine needs a new home. Any audio lovers out there? Leave me a comment and you are in the raffle. I’ll (virtually) draw a name from the hat on Wednesday, 7 February, 3pm GMT.
As for Wanderlust – have you splashed out and downloaded it? Looking forward to hearing your views on it.
