So today I opened my tiny mailbox to see that it was stuffed to the brim with three very colorful packages! The first, in an adorable blue bubble mailer, was from the awesome @akarih as part of @Canadale’s zapping game! As I said in the other thread, Alice is one of my secret guilty pleasure side collections because I think that the character and I have a lot in common. Mostly A) nonsense running through our heads, B) eating strange foods without much hesitation and C) the proclivity to take naps at inopportune moments. Her holding the drink me bottle will be a great reminder for me to stay hydrated throughout the day. The next was a perfectly purple package from @SoraPandora! As I stated in the other thread, she included a pin I’ve been after for years, stickers that I will use for grading (they may be in college, but they’re still gonna get stickers back on their quizzes), a great notepad for writing down my lecture notes, and a silver Tink keychain so that I never lose my office keys! She’s a wizard! There was also a very nicely wrapped package. (Seen at the top there under the note.) And of course, in normal Sara fashion, without a second thought she ZAPPED ME A GRAIL Now, I’ve already let Sara in my own lovingly aggressive way that, in saying in one of @CanaDaLE ‘s challenges that “I was able to recognize a pin because it was one of my grails” , I meant to say it was a grail that I had already obtained. BUT Sara and I have determined that the pin she sent me was actually the grail I was searching for all along, and that the one I had possessed was just a very good look-alike . And let’s just say I have very good plans for that look alike. Eheheheheheh. And the last pretty pink parcel was from @krand1276 (wait is that the right one it’s so hard to do this on mobile), with a whole BUNCH of goodies, including my art???? On a bag???????????????????????????? A) I’m good to see that the image sizes I upload are large enough for purposes such as these B) WHAT C) It’s both a pin bag and a bag I can take to michaels and make all the crafters envious In addition to the bag, there were of course two great pins from my wants list that I wasn’t able to pick up while I was a cast member there and totally regretted it, a furry friend to protect my new apartment (Bambi and I are gonna do some CrossFit together to toughen up and fight off any intruders), some perfect stickers that I can use to decorate my new school supplies, and a sweet treat! (Which is great because I just ran out of chocolate.) This has been an absolutely enthralling day, and a great reminder that I need to go get some larger envelopes. Thank you all!
