I’m now going to wear the !!! key out because there is no other way to fully express my excitement at getting this package.
And then I went back to squooshing the packages. Lets start with the squooshest. The quote is “Bunnies aren’t just cute like everybody supposes.”
It’s MILKBAR BAND CANDY! with the wrappers and everything!!! Raisedbywoolves just won the swap right there. That is so amazing. The inside is all free trade and yummy and I’ve eaten two and I don’t feel any dif- yeah, never mind.
I’m wearing it now but I forgot to take photos. It’s a matt finish just like Spike and very punk. Being water based the texture is different and I can’t even feel that I’m wearing it. I have issues with some brands of nail polish making my fingers feel heavy and trapped, this doesn’t do that. I suspect that raisedbywoolves knows that since she stalked me so well.
This was a HUGE package. Do read the quote. I had to watch that episode again tonight night. Giles mentioned his life flashing before his eyes and Spike sums it up for him…. "cuppa tea, cuppa tea, almost got shagged, cuppa tea"… I love this show.
But inside the package, WOWZA! LOOK AT THOSE MUGS! I’m keeping the “Shiny” one at home for my morning coffee because it’s so perky and I’m taking the “Bored Now” to work because that is funny on every level. I love it SO MUCH! Raisedbywoolves commissioned them made just for ME! Because she is that kind of EPIC spoiler.
And if it wasn’t enough (and seriously it was enough back at the Band Candy) she gifted me this pattern,Earl Grey Mitts.
That is so freaking amazing, I can’t even…
Raisedbywoolves, you nailed this and it’s my favorite yarn of all time, ever. Right there with onemilljellybeans dyeing me self-striping sock yarn for the Doctor Who swap in 2011. It’s that epic and perfect and I love it and at this point I’m crushing pretty hard on you too. You are AMAZING!
I mentioned wanting Float Out and raisedbywoolves got it for me. She is that kind of spoiler. Thank you. It’s wonderful and everything I hoped it would be.
However, the super secret surprise is the Spike comic. I didn’t even know this existed and one of the main characters is a talking BETTA FISH and Angel is so brooding and unimportant and the TWINKLE book and movie series with the glittering vampires is written by Spikes Ex-girlfriend and Dru and so much more. I laughed until I cried. I love it and I now have to read them all. Also? They are so short. Modern blurb is right.
On the outside of the package was that cute DAMN YOU JOSS button. Sums up my feeling perfectly.
It just blows me away that you put so much time and effort into me. Thank you. You have made my month.
