kamenkyote sent me some artwork that arrived on Monday, in the midst of torrential rain! So it stayed on my desk all week.
Today I got a giant box full of Oscar Wilde from twowishesleft. He is this amazing plush pillow doll. I am super excited!
But yesterday? Yesterday was the day of mail not to be forgotten.
First, I got these:
Pretty awesome, huh? I am stoked for my business cards. They were only like $20 for a thousand cards, so any of you who have ever wanted business cards just because, you should get some!
So I was already happy, when another package arrives...
My mother sent me not one, but TWO boxes of See's chocolates.
And that might have been enough, but then I went to check my submissions mailbox, and there was this odd-shaped envelope, and I was like, hm, this is a funny shape for a submission. And then I looked and saw it was addressed to me and not to Submissions Editor.
And then I saw that it was from whirled.
It was a book! And this is what was inside:
Which is just more proof that whirled might just be one of the most awesome people ever.
But it is funny, because I actually have something for whirled.
On Wednesday night, I went out to be moral support while Dan Piraro shot a video to promote our iPhone app. whirled sent me the following message:
You were drinking with MR BIZARRO?!
Sigh. I'm moving to NYC, dammit!
The thing was, I was still drinking with Mr. Bizarro. And I showed him the message. And he was like, "oh! Then we should get a picture of the two of us together for her!"
I only had my phone, and it doesn't have the greatest flash, but Dan's wife took a pic for you, whirled! So it turned out appropriately weird. Thank you for my book!
