I thought having jan_on_ice love the goodies I sent was great, but receiving your first swap package is even better
I was about to leave the house when the postal-lady came to the door with my package! I could just plotz! My geeky goodies had arrived! I was so
excited I did a little dance down the hallway, through the kitchen, into the lounge room and back out into the hallway again. Then I stood outside the bathroom (where my sis was brushing her teeth) jumping up and down yelling "Look! Look what I got!"
So, Look what I got!:
This is the Fraggle bag she sent which may look a little bulgy as I am already using it and it is full of my stuff! Its so cute and it has handy pockets with cute Fraggles on it! I love Fraggle Rock!
I got a very handy "Geek Pride" magnet which lives on my fridge now. And holds up my poopy bills... at least the magnet makes me smile even if the bills suck...
I also received these fabulous coasters that were geeky in the most 80's way possible! And the best part is that my friend had just been visiting days earlier and was appalled that I didn't have any coasters! And now I have the BEST coasters EVER!
Check it out:
From the top left hand corner: that's MacGyver and it says "All you need is love...but a little duct tape couldn't hurt", then there's the cast of Parker Lewis Can't Lose, then its Punky Brewster, below her are the Mythbusters,, then going back left again there's Ferris Bueller and the A-Team.How cool is that?
But wait there was more stuff!
Those are my own geeky glasses but the glasses case with the geek pride motif, the chain for the glasses that says "geek" and four-eyes" in beads (which I think is hilarious!
), the hairclips and earrings that express my respect fro Joss Whedon and disappointment in George Lucas ( I <3
Joss) and the mighty Joss sew-on patch that reads "Joss is my master now" in Jedi-type font are all fantastically creative geeky goodies from jan_on_ice!
I am wearing the eyeglasses chain right now
! Here's a close up of he chain so you can see how damned cute it is!
And yet there was more!
Here is the handy notebook with pen for hanging near the TV so I can note down those witty one-liners that I adore so much. You never know when you can quote those back at somebody... and then there's the handy little pocketknife pouch for my Swiss Army pocketknife, which has "What would MacGyver do?" written on it, and if it looks bulgy, thats because my pocketknife is already at home in there! It is so tiny and cute! And the cutest of all is the tiny little Yoda head Christmas tree ornament! Oh Puh-lease! As if this will ever make it to my tree! Its going to hang on my car's rearview mirror so I can see it everyday
Also I have to check on it periodically because my brother covets it something fierce
! (and I can't crochet so its even more special!) I Love Love LOVE
I have to show you just how tiny and cute the pocketknife pouch is:
Isn't that the sweetest thing ever? (Well, apart from Yoda)
I am so glad
you included the Yoda at the last minute jan_on_ice, especially since I can't crochet!
Thanks kousagi, Shotgun Bettie and jan_on_ice! You made my first swap a really fun, hassle-free experience! (Er, except for the unavoidable Great Craftster Meltdown of '06).
