Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I know, why would you want to give away that you are sending a life-sized model of Great A'tuin carrying the Disc

*slaps forehead*

Ooops!

Okay here goes.... I got the box and turned it on an end to open when I saw this:

It says "No! Don't open here! Try the other side its often more agreeable"

Inside she gave me a letter detailing the things she sent. I had initially written her at the beginning of the swap to find out if she was allergic to anything... like wool or pineapple scent (things I've known people to be allergic to in the past) and she in turn asked me the same.... I answered bees and mushrooms to which we had a round of PMs talking about them... all of this explains why the details note was enclosed in an envelope with this on it:

A bee dog!

She included these things:

A Seamstresses Guild T-shirt and information brochure


She sent these for my littlest ones:



Nac MacFeegle T-shirts with the pictsie on the front and "Bigjobs" on the back

Wrapped in a brown wrapper that said "Nothing in here but a plain, old book*.......................*Seriously." was this:

which opens

She painted the inside with cinnamon!

With the Joye of Snacks book came this:

A celery pillow since many of Nanny Ogg's recipes feature celery stalks in very crude appearences.


I was in love with everything I received..... and then I saw IT......

It was lurking.......

Hiding maliciously amongst the brown packing paper........

Hoping that I would never see it until it was too late...........

And it killed me in my sleep......

AN EVIL MUSHROOM! AAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHH I'M ALLERGIC!!

now... I don't think Millik was in on some ploy to kill me, I think the mushroom used her as an unsuspecting patsy..... don't trust those mushrooms...ever.

The evil mushroom may well be the greatest thing I have ever seen.

[[Warning: Image-Heavy Post!]]

After two days of hanging out at the post office, taunting me from afar, my package has finally arrived from Conley! And I must say that I have been dancing around and singing the praises of all of my stuff ever since. This girl is awesome. Besides being amusing, she is an awesome seamstress and made me some of the coolest things I've ever received.

First, here is the Auditor Bag (made from real Auditor!):


It has a bajillion pockets, which contained all of my awesome stuff:


Which I promptly removed for inspection. Each thing came with a lovely explanatory note, many of them witty beyond belief.


With the bag came a box of chocolates and this fabulous, hand-embroidered Death Approved Patch (tm)


Here is the Genuine Lancre Muck About Scarf, which I have been wearing since I opened the package. I took an action shot, too, but I've been packing boxes and I look pretty ratty*, so I decided to leave that out:


Many things in my package were "Genuine" which I truly appreciate because so many things aren't these days, you know? I'd like to think it was knitted with wool from a Genuine Lancre Sheep. In fact, I know it was, and you can't convince me otherwise!

This was my special request item, a Cripple Mr. Onion game. It's genuine Ankh-Morporkian, and my partner wrote on the item's description, "Now with more button!" This comment has had my girlfriend and I giggling all day! Least of all because it is so true...


Okay, and now for the grand finale... a special gift my swap partner says comes straight from Death himself... It was wrapped over and over and over again in this gorgeous fabric and tied up with brown string... What could it be? I hope it's not my own life-timer, slowly running out...


No, it's my very own Death of Rats!! Complete with Baby Scythe!


This is surely the cutest dead rodent I've ever received in the mail.

Thank you so, so much for everything!! I am totally not worthy of being your swap partner. I was incredibly spoiled... everything is so amazing Smiley

Everything looks real cool Smiley
