After a loooong day at work this past week, I came home to a nice surprise. (There’s just something so romantic about receiving snail mail in this day and age – email just takes no effort! Boys, take note. Girls respond better when you make an effort.)
To whom do I owe this pleasure and honour? None other than nabbycat, who made an appearance on Stylo Milo Sunday sometime back and who recently had her first blog giveaway involving haikus – and of course, she picked me (among others). Yay!
So on to the lovely package…
An assortment of all things quirky!
I thought the invisible letter was a particularly nice touch, but I am clearly not cut out for deciphering secret codes:
Burn marks everywhere, as you can see. It’s a miracle I didn’t set the house on fire. hurhur.
Last but not least, the notebook (and particularly the quote on the notebook) appealed to the Literature student in me. /le sigh!
Definitely going to use this for random scribbles and notes. Muchas gracias chica!
P.S. In addition to giving away pretty things on her blog, nabbycat is also participating in the LISTERINE Bloggers Dare. I fully applaud her attempt at getting healthier teeth so if you have some time, do go over and vote for her now! Instructions here.
Pardon the radio silence, but we’ve all been busy….chomping, as monsters do.
I interrupt our hiatus with my profession of love for Mad Men, the drama series about advertising set in the ’60s and renowned for its attention to detail and excellent writing – if you don’t already know.
Rolling Stone magazine goes behind the scenes, giving us mere mortals a glimpse into the wonderful world of Mad Men:
I leave you with a fantastic scene, from the finale of Season 1 (I think) – guaranteed to make you sigh, if not cry. Listen to the dialogue – one does not need to follow the show to appreciate this:
“Nostalgia literally means, the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than your memory alone.”
Who we are
