An Amazing(ly Poignant) Gift

Leave a comment

One of my friends from England recently tried to send me a present thinking it was my birthday (this was a month or so back).  It obviously hasn’t been my birthday since October, but I’ll never say no to presents.  There were some concerns over the chocolate in the package, as they are banned by some arcane U.S. law because the little toys inside cause babies to choke when their lazy ass parents don’t monitor what their kids are munching on….

Anyway.  We had about given up on the gift ever arriving, but then I checked my mail today and discovered this (after the fold):

Is that not awesome?  Since Lily reads my blog (for whatever reason), I have to give a huge shout out to her.  Thank you so much, Lily!  You totally made my day.  I will immediately begin planning my evil deeds and stuff.  You better believe it!

P.S.:  Lily has a blog where she’s posting her poetry for NaPo (the poetry version of NaNoWriMo).  It’s called Raining Fairy Lights.
