Mystery Swap Package has arrived!

I got home after a long day yesterday to this: My Mystery Swap Package from Tiffany. Everything was wrapped up in cute blue paper and sprinkled with glitter as if it was my birthday.

Inside was:
  • a ball of midnight blue/light blue Opal sock yarn (a brand I have never used before, which is exciting)
  • a Hubba Bubba Clucker (it winds up and walks while laying bubble gum eggs. Hysterical.)
  • and not one, but four books: Obelists Fly High by C. Daly King, The Mystery of the Yellow Room by Geston Leroux, The Red House Mystery by A. A. Milne, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens.

I haven't even heard of half of these authors. Nevertheless, Tiffany really has my number. I didn't have time to do more than read the back and first paragraph of each book, but judging by that alone, these are all very interesting reads. I don't know where to start first.

Okay, so maybe I do. The bird is already a-clucking.

Thank you, Tiffany, for such a well thought out and interesting package!

I worked on the skit some last night, but I got home later than usual and was so exhausted that I didn't get very far. I'm hoping that since I have the apartment to myself until 10pm tonight I will fit in some quality writing time and have it finished by Friday. Part of me wants to sit on it a week so that I can revise it, but then again, another part of me says that I should learn not to take myself so seriously. So I will be posting it this weekend at latest. And it will be behind the cut, of course.

Seriously I think that chicken is hours of entertainment alone! But four books - woohoo - you scored. I've heard of some of them but not read them yet & now I am reminded that I wanted to. :)

I didn't know A. A. Milne wrote a mystery!! I'd love to hear how you liked it.

I'd love to hear about the Milne mystery, too!

Have fun and enjoy all your goodies! :)

I once started reading the Mystery of the Yellow Room off Project Guttenberg and got frustrated with all the damn paper, so when you're done with that, I'd love to borrow it. You lucky duck. Prezzies. I should join one of these thingies someday.
