So now that she has, my Ms. Pidge has been very excited to write to her...
but Lily beat her to it!
Please check out the Penpals tab to learn more about Ms. Lily!!
Pidge: Oh, Heather! Look at this!! I got the most lovely letter!
Aren't these kitties cute?!
Me: Aww... so cute! Who is it from?
Pidge: Well... uhm... -_-;;
Me: What is it?
Pidge: Technically it's to Alna... and kind of to me...
because the girl who sent it was afraid you'd given me a boot.
Me: I think you mean "Given you THE boot"
Pidge: Oh... ok, Alna was worried I was getting new shoes and she wasn't
... but Alna said it was ok if I took over this letter.
Is that really ok?
Me: Yes, If Alna gave you permission it's fine.
Pidge: Oh! Oh good! It's from a Miss Lily! She is so cute!!
She did ask Alna if she liked being famous...
and Alna's response was "YES!" but that it made her
very busy, so that was why it was ok for me to write
letters back. I hope I'm not too boring. :(
Me: I'm sure you'll be fine.
Pidge: I don't know... I'm not a rock star.
Me: Thank goodness for small favors...
this house doesn't need more than one diva.
Me: Nevermind, we love you just as you are.
Pidge: Ok then! :D I'm going to go write a letter back RIGHT NOW!
Look at how beautiful Lily's curly letters are!
Mine will look so sloppy! T_T
Me: OMG... stop worrying! Go... Write!
Pidge: Oh! One more thing!!!
Pidge: Alna and I got these SO LOVELY necklaces from chibinezumi! Did you know she lives right here in Michigan...
AND YOU'VE NEVER EVEN MET HER!
Me: I know! I know! I really need to! I'm sure Alna would like to visit Airy.
Pidge: Who is Airy?
Me: Someone who moved out before you moved in.
Pidge: Is it my fault she moved out? Was there not enough room?
Me: YES. Exactly. >8)
Me: I'm kidding, I'm kidding! Don't cry!
Pidge: You're so mean!!
For anyone who is interested in learning more about chibinezumi
and her wonderful creations
(She also makes awesome sparkle shoes that I need
to get Claire to show off!)
Me: Let's take a closer look here... Oh! Could it be, Macarons???
Me: It is!
Sahra: Oh Heather, what are these? They look so lovely!
Me: What?! Where'd you come from?! Get away from the Macarons... they're mine! MINE! My preeeeeeecious.....
Sahra: You're weird... can I eat one?
Sahra: But they're huge! Bigger than my head! I'd only take a tiny nibble!
Me: Oh... fine... a tiny nibble.
Sahra: *nibbles* Oooh, these are delicious... I think I could eat the whole thing!
Me: GAH! NO! PUT THE COOKIE DOWN!
Sahra: Tee hee hee hee! Just kidding! Thank you for letting me try them! Bye! One nibble from each cookie was like eating a whole cookie for me! Me: 0_0 ... who said you could try each one?!
Sahra: Hehehehe! *scampers off quickly*
Me: *whew* I'm going to have to eat these before the other Neemos show up!
I have been hunting all over Lansing for somewhere that sells Macarons... and was about to give up, when a friend of mine mentioned that she *thought* the bakery she got her wedding cake from, made them... so I went to check it out, and it's TRUE!
I got chocolate, cinnamon, pistachio, salted caramel and passion fruit.
Me: Hey, Kirino! What's up? You seem a little upset.
Kirino: Heather, I think you have a problem. We need to figure out how to get you the help you need.
Me: Huh?! A problem? What problem?
Kirino: You're carrying around a bag full of bodies 0_0
Don't worry, I won't call the cops.
Kirino gets so worried about the most amusing things. She seems to have this perpetual fear of being "caught" doing something... sometimes it's eating a cookie, sometimes it's playing a computer game, obviously this time she feared I would be caught for my bag of bodies! She's too cute!
Anna: *yawn* Oh, hi Heather! I was just taking a nap.
Me: Yeah, sorry to wake you, but a package came for you!
*puts package contents down in front of Anna*
Anna: Whoa! Lookit all this! Who is it from?
Me: Your cousin, Chou.
Anna: Oh! Is there a letter?!
Anna: Oh my goodness! She wrote so much! I think I need to write her back a longer letter. T_T
Me: I'm sure your letter will be fine, no matter how long it is. It's not a competition.
Anna: Isn't it? ISN'T IT?! You know how family is!
Me: Uh... what?
Anna: I don't know, I saw this tv show where the family was very competitive,
so I thought that's how families were. Aren't they like that?
Me: No! Well... sometimes... wait, NO! No more TV for you, missy!
Anna: Aww, look, she also sent shells she collected on her trip! These are going on my shelf!
Anna: Oh, there was this little package in the letter too...
Anna: EEEE! Look! It's a necklace made from one of the shells she found!
How did she drill the little hole in it?!
Ok, now on to the boxes!
Me: Anna, you really need to be more careful. -_-;;
Anna: EEE! Earrings!! These are so cute!
Me: Wow! It was so nice of her to send you so many!
You'll have to share with the other girls.
Anna: I'm surprised Madoka isn't already here to nab some. -_-
Me: Er... me too, actually. That worries me.
Me: Here's a closeup of them!
If you're interested in a pair,
please contact Retrograde and see if she has any left to sell!
Wall-E is fascinated by the earrings... I think he wishes he had ears.
Anna: Sorry, Heather, I couldn't wait, I opened the next box
and it was filled with these lovely barrettes!
Me: Oh, we'll have to see who looks good in them!
Anna: I think Alna should wear the red bow... or maybe the pink bunny... I don't know.
Do you think she'll wear them both?
Me: Well, maybe not at the same time... but I'm sure she'll love to wear them. :)
Anna: Thank you SO much, Chou! Our package is currently on it's way to you... and my letter!
Make sure you follow the instructions on the letter's envelope. *nod*
Anna: I really, really, really love my new necklace! It seems perfect for a Geocacher...
to wear a necklace that is a found item.
It's just SO cool!
Me: Yes, thank you, Chou and Elly, you totally made Anna's day... and probably Madoka's too, if I could just find where she got off to... she's so... sneaky sometimes.
It's like she's everywhere and nowhere all at once. -_-
(Yes, I just cannot help but allude to Madoka's past almost every time I mention her...
it's like a sickness.)
My girls now have 4 penpals!
They are very excited about this, and letters have been dispatched to ALL penpals!
Be on the lookout!
