I had to leave early today from work, and usually, if I have a package, the mail room girl will bring it to my desk. Or they'll send me an email. Well, I got neither of those, but I was leaving at 2, and I thought, well, I'll just run by the mailroom and see if its there and they couldn't do either of those things because one of teh mail room guys is out.
AND MY PACKAGE WAS THERE!!!!!!!
Its glorious. Its like, EVERYTHING. and its perfect. And CHRIS PINE... okay, not the real chris pine or I'm sure I'd be doing something else, but A shirt with him right over my boob heart boob. I took pictures I just have to upload everything and post.
My stalker was RobbieZombie!! She had these little easter eggs filled with mini reeses cups and in each egg was 3 reeses and a little piece of paper with one letter of her user name. I had to unscramble and... okay, I admit I looked at the note, but still it was awesome and I was making very incoherent noises in the car as I tried to open the package and drive at the same time.
I posted this earlier in the discussion thread, but thought I would continue the story here.
First, I pulled stuff out mostly at stop lights until I talked myself into putting back in the box and putting it in the back seat until I got home. It was INCREDIBLY LIKE TORTURE. or at least, what I imagine torture to be.
First, I found these:
THEY ARE KIRK AND BONES SOCK MONKEYS. I never even imagined such things. I wanted them even though I didn't know they existed. But now they do and they are miiiiiiiine. they look a little weird, because I have to stuff them (and I am going to need instructions on that Robbie_Zombie) . Look at their little shirts!!!
After I waived them around and squealed a bit, I found these:
Kirk and bones action figures! I can't wait to get them out of the boxes and make them have phaser fights with my Clark and Lex Luthor action figures.
Then, there was this stump pin cushion. Its right off my wists, and its kirk and bones forever. Awww
and another angle so you can see how it looks like a tree stump
One of the non-star trek things...
a crochet hook roll in the best cupcake fabric!
This honestly cracked me up. I said this on some thread about this happening at DragonCon last year. I don't know if it was the CD thread or not. This just means that robbie_zombie stalked me well.
I found these wonderful coasters next.
I can't decide which one I'm taking to work and which one I'm leaving on my craft desk and which on my computer desk. I will have to think about it.
there's a WHOLE PACKAGE of shrinky dinks!!, a sheet of magnets, a bag of glass marbles to make the magnets, a seam ripper and some felt. my theory on this is that she got it from my ongoing wists swap list. SO good at stalking!
I saved one of my favorite pieces for near to last. It's Captain Kirk right over my heart! Its so perfect I can't even tell you.
isn't it perfect? she said it was the first stinciling she's done and, its so great. I wore this out tonight to the movies with my friend and she said, "oh my god, is that Chris pine?" and I said, yes, yes it is. She shook her head like I'M the crazy one! pfft.
Anyway, at the bottom of the box this is what is left. Its some shredded paper, plastic easter eggs and reeses cups.
Some of the eggs had come open and I realize that there are letters in each of the slips of paper in each one. So I sort through and I had to read the letter she sent with all of her notes on the projects and her big reveal, but I'm glad she did because it might have driven me nuts.
and then, i realized there was more
STAR TREK STITCH MARKERS! omg awesome.
I'm beyond thrilled with it all. Thank you so much robbie_zombie!!
