Giftage!


What goes around, comes around.

I finally got my giant lazy ass to the post office and sent long-overdue prizes out to Freddyknits, Dragon Mad Knitter and to our friend Janis over at Yarn!

More packages to be sent tomorrow. I apologize; I've been in a bit of a spin (no pun intended) of late, but at least I'm not as bad as Laurie. Go on. Go look at her shame!

After I dragged my thoroughly-ashamed self back on home, I discovered that the mail carrier had been by and had for once managed to figure out where I live. My camera is dead (not damaged, just out of batteries. Yes, I used them all in the vibrator. Shut up.) so I can't take any pictures of the package that was waiting for me when I got home.

Our beloved Trixie took it into her lovely non-knitterly head to send me a big bag of peanut M&Ms -- bunny mix! Who knew there was a bunny mix?! She also included a couple of "smiley power" pencils and some barrettes, both of which my daughter immediately appropriated (she's not getting the M&Ms, dammet) an incredibly sweet little sheep with a pull-put measuring tape tail made by Lantern Moon, and an autographed copy of KnitLit (too).

*swoon*

Thank you, Trixie! I love ya, man!

I would also like to thank Maryse for making me almost rupture myself when reading her response to my "Homewrecker" post. I can't think I've ever heard a better quote than:

'well you know that in Quebec giving the gift of ice cream is Quebecois for "thanks for the fuck"'

You owe me a new keyboard, bitch.

And speaking of such giftage, I got the box of stash, Rabbitch. Thank you, thank you! I'm really looking forward to taking it to my favorite local shop, Nease's Needlework
(http://www.neasesneedlework.com),
so they can help me figure out how to use it up.

The blue fuzzy is especially pretty. Trixie mooned over it a lot, so I see a Trixie-destined project in it's future...

Glad to know I had a small hand in getting you (plural) more personally involved with your various postal services. Just trying to improve civil servant appreciation! :D
