Well friends, another successful Chibication has come to a close. I had a lovely visit with Chibi and moM (they came to visit me this time), and as per last year’s Chibication, I thought I’d make a list of the things I learned…
1. My darling Chibi is a talented little thing! Look what she made for me!
She didn’t want to have to travel with the frame, so we ironed it all out & framed it once she got here. She says the wings were the hardest – full of sparkly back stitches – so I took an extra shot of that. Thanks for the faerie, Chibi! I love her!
2. Taking a break from the interwebs wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. My virtual fish went belly up. My virtual crops died. My virtual Smurfs had nothing to eat for a week.
My inbox piled up. And you know what? NOTHING BAD HAPPENED. None of my Facebook friends noticed that I didn’t “like” anything they’d said for a week. No one sent me a scathing “how could you not have written back to me?” e-mail. The Smurfs didn’t make a peep. Actually, now I think about it, Farmville sent me 10 free farmcash to get me to keep playing. Hmm… I should take a break from the interwebs more often, I think.
3. I have absolutely no will power. (Translation: I now own ALL the Sookie Stackhouse novels, which I bought to put on my new Nook, which I bought because moM and Chibi said I should, which I believed because I’m a total wimp when it comes to peer pressure). I also rearranged my Netflix queue and am now expecting season 1 of TrueBlood to arrive any time.
Yes, I realize this is mindless vampire fantasy romance drivel. Yes, I did read all ten novels in a week. Yes, the HBO series is basically…um… well, it’s HBO. You know what it is. And worst of all, YES, I really enjoyed it. (Somewhere my literature profs are all cursing me and spitting, I’m pretty sure). At any rate, Nooks are good for the environment. It was a green thing to do; at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
4. I can get my Chibi to agree to pretty much anything if I ply her with Indian food first.
Needless to say I didn’t get much hookery accomplished, but I did have a fabulous visit! Hooray, Chibication!
