I Have a Poppet!


So, the rest of my package for the Once Upon a Time Challenge arrived safely. Yay! I actually got it yesterday, but the batteries in my digital camera were dead. I wanted to take a picture of my poppet, and as you can see, the poppet is already doing book duty. I also found my good charger, so no batteries should not happen again. Anyways, the prize package is awesome, so my very ecstatic thanks to Carl for both hosting a challenge in a genre that I love, and then rewarding me for reading books in that genre. It was like Christmas!

In the first picture you can see my poppet on the Spectrum 13 book that I am still in love with. I cannot believe it took me 13 books to even find out it existed! (I have been 'browsing' back issues of it, but I know for sure I will be picking up Spectrum 14 when it comes out this fall.) He also sent along the key that is pictured. There is something fantasy-related to an old-fashioned key, isn't there... I'm not sure how to explain it but I understood as soon as I saw it.

I also did in fact reread The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I started a discussion of sorts over on Twisted Kingdom instead of rehashing the plot, I hope you will click over there and join in.

  1. Yay! So glad it all arrived. Good to see Poppet already gravitating towards the books! ;)

    I cannot wait for Spectrum 14. I start getting antsy with anticipation this time of year, knowing it is only a few months away.

  3. About your comment on my North & South post, let me know if you can't find a rental copy. A friend of mine is going to buy me the original DVD in London, so if you want a copy I can always mail it to you. :-)

  4. carl v.: My Poppet can't help gravitating towards the books... there are very few places without books in my house. :)

    daphne: I will address this question after. There's a web site, I don't know the URL off-hand.

    ana: oh, very tempting! I will have to think about that. :)

  6. Hi Kristy. I noticed you were a member. :) I hopefully will clean some classics off the shelves, so it will be good.

  7. YAY! So glad you got a poppet :) Totally understand the key comment. I love skeleton keys. Definitely a fantasy element to old keys..."what's lurking behind old locked doors?"

    The Spectrum books are awesome. Can't wait for 14 to come out. Carl is the one who introduced me to those as well. Enjoy your stuff!!

  8. Chris: I am not sure it was a good thing to get a poppet or not, now I am thinking my poppet is lonely and needs more poppets! lol I think they are cute, I can't help it.

    The Spectrum books are awesome. I wish I knew they existed years ago!

  9. I recommend that you adopt a blue poppet ;) They get along nicely with their red counterparts.
