Carl may be the nicest person on Earth! In his latest act of generosity, he sent me a big box filled with goodies. For a belated birthday present he sent this:
His Dark Materials are among my very favorite books, so I really can't wait to read Once Upon a Time in the North! And Sea of Shadows looks good for the next RIP Challenge, but I doubt I'll be able to wait that long to read it! And did you notice the bookmark and postcards by Anne-Julie Aubry? I absolutely love her work! And I hope no one expects to receive one of these postcards, because I'm afraid I have to keep them for myself.
And if that wasn't generous enough, Carl sent me an extra surprise. Because he was proud of me for donating my hair. Can you believe that? I don't feel worthy. It was really not a big deal to donate my hair, especially when you think about all the things the girls who actually need these wigs must go through. But I have to admit, I'm still very happy he did send me this extra surprise, because I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! Isn't this the beautiful necklace ever?
And in case you're still not convinced that Carl is the nicest person on Earth (though I think you'd have to be an idiot not to be), look at this box he made me to keep the necklace in. And it's even prettier in person than it looks in the photo!
Thank you, Carl! Thank you very, very, very much!
