Okay, here *finally* are the awesome things my partner PerfectlyBohemian sent!
First off, a few (additional) views of the absolutely amazing Hiram McDaniel's!
The little heads are just so gosh darn cute! Now, the Glow Cloud (all hail!) sent a few presents as well in 'transit' that attempted to knock out a few of Hiram's horns, but Hiram was not so easily thwarted.
My sweet partner also seems to have spoken with the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home, and thus was able to acquire and share with me some of the following charms which will be incorporated into jewelry my boyfriend makes.
Finally as far as gifts go, I also received a lovely mug rug that is just outstanding in my eyes. :-) I'm not sure if you can make out the details, but it depicts a mountain (which is not real), the Arby's, and our very own Night Vale Community Radio station.
The action shot:
I should also include that I received my absolutely favorite card I've ever been sent in a swap to date.
Flamingo! How could I not love that? It's practically a city council mandated lawn decoration.
Ha! I *finally* have pictures of the awesome things my partner made! Well, truthfully they arrived last week and are amazing. Unfortunately since my phone died trying to take the first picture, I had to borrow mom's camera. Taken a week to finally get the photos transferred from her computer to mine, but it has happened.
I'm about to go ice my back for a bit, so I'm not posting them now, but I *will* be posting them tonight.
She decorated a huge tote with one of my favorite quotes that I already used tonight as a project bag as soon as I got home and opened it and then ran off to coffee. She also sent two flour sack towels so that I can proclaim my love for Night Vale in the kitchen or at tea
Yay! So glad you like the items!
mousee23 - Love the reversible apron and that scarf is just gorgeous. :-)
Bakeneko - That microphone is so cool! Mousee23 is a very lucky lady. Same goes with the awesome Hiram shirt.
Bethimusprime - Good job kid. :-P
Teaandcraft - So many neat things! Those big Rico earrings are just too cute. :-)
SilverMoon - Oh my goodness, but I love that Hiram statue! It would be a nightmare to keep my cat away from it, but it does look neat.
dontneedaclassroom - I think my favorite part of all of that is the outline of the deer. :-)
All of my papers for my ethics course are finished! FINISHED! Oh dear God, why did I ever think a two week course was a good idea?!
That being said, I'm afraid I might have to send late, breaking my streak of always getting things in on time. I have already located my nearest hidden microphone and have shouted my shame to the Sheriffs Secret Police and The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In My Home. If I am lucky, I will not be taken in for mandatory good citizenship remedial training. I'm sure this is a thing, right?
OAnd my six year old looks up at it, and while his siblings were wondering aloud what it was, he turns to me and says "All hail! All hail the glow cloud!" and I thought my proud geeky mummy heart would just burst.
That is totally awesome!
Okay, I've started work on one of my projects and it's going to need some adjusting. No big deal there. I've done prep work for another, the third I hope to start work on while on a trip to Illinois I'll be taking from Friday to Monday. Right now I'm attempting to get all of this weeks homework (2 week course) out of the way so I'll have Wednesday and Thursday free for projects one and two.
Just three more discussion sections and 3 more short tests to go! So far so good for being on track.
Special thanks is going out to KBrison (my mother) for agreeing to serve as my editor which saves me some time.
I've heard all but the most recent episode, but now I think I need to go listen to it! Feel free to chat with me about it tomorrow though. I love to talk all things Nightvale. (Heck, I love to get my geek on!)
Well, I know I'm not in the swap, but sharing some of the love. :-)
Character I think I most resemble: Susan Sto Helit - I'm usually calm, collected, logical, but open to the idea that we adults don't always know what's *really* going on.
Anti me would likely be Rincewind. I love him, but I refuse to live in constant fear.
Favorite Character and book.... I think this would be impossible. I have so many I love for such different reasons, Vimes, Vetinari, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, the Wee Free Men, The Chancellor, Cheery, The Luggage, DEATH! The list could go on and on. As for the book "Good Omens" (I own 5+ copies of this book, just in case I meet someone who's never read it so I can give it to them), "Small Gods", "Equal Rites", "Going Postal", "Raising Steam", "THUD!", again, the list can go on and on.
This man and his writings totally bring out my Geek. I could talk about the worlds and characters he's created for hours and not be tired of the discussion. I also can't tell you just how many times in college I would be sick to death of reading, couldn't stand the sight of another book, but I'd still pick up the latest Discworld novel I had gotten my hands on and read until the wee hours of the morning, only to have to drag myself to class the next day as though I had been out partying all night. Never once did I regret staying up to read the book though.
