Fantastic Folk Friday - Mail Bag of Awesomeness


I already know the people I know are awesome because those people are you people. But see that picture to the right, that goes beyond awesomness. In fact, I think we need to create a new word for such amazingness. I shall hunt verification words until I find one suitable--it's out there, I know it.

Mary Rajotte sent me a parcel full of goodies. It's not my birthday, it's not Christmas, she sent it to brighten my day. And it did, how cool. How beyond cool. See the silver flower (which the photo doesn't do justice too at mini size--click on the picture to make it BIG), well it's a pin that I can totally attach to my jacket and it is sooooo me. And in the little tin is Green Apple perfume. Green... Apple... And my blog used to be a green 'poisoned' apple.

And just think, one day I'll be standing in queue at a book signing and someone will say, 'I so love your flower pin' and I'll answer, 'Mary Rajotte sent it to me, you know THE Mary who we are currently in line to see'... and then the police will take me away because they'll think I'm a stalker or a nut or both.

Wow, very cool! Surprise mail is awesome, and you're right, it really does need an even better descriptor.

Mary Rajotte said...

Heeheeee! I'm kind of embarrassed by this post - but happy that the parcel made it to you safely!

Sidenote: I made the pin with my own two hands! Yes, I am crafty with yarn & beads as well as words!

Enjoy the loot!

Now back to the words so I'll have something to sign when you get to the front of the queue ;)

Between us we will find the word, Anthony

So you're super talented, Mary. I wish I could make things other than mess.

Totally, Lee

She's a star, Kara

Aw, what a nice surprise. I say I don't like surprises, but I'm totally lying. =)

Word verification: opoloo (heh)

If you ever open the mailbox and go, "Who in the world sent me gay porn??", you'll know it's me. Fair warning.

K.C. Shaw said...

How sweet! That's a lovely pin, too.

My word verification is 'murgic,' like magic but more, um, uresome.

Cate Gardner said...

Surprises rock, India.

Noted, Natalie :D

I'm sure there's a bit of murgic in all of us, Kate. :D
