Then we made a beeline for Florida, and somewhere around Georgia, there was a suspicious wobble and we pulled over just in time to find that we'd lost FOUR lug nuts out of one tire. One valiant lug nut was keeping us from potentially dying, going 70 mphs, on a Georgia highway. We had just gotten new tires, and the mechanic had over-tightened the bolts, causing them to twist and weaken. My husband had BIG WORDS with Midas. Apart from that, the trip was busy and much fun! If anyone gets to Disneyworld, check out the new Pandora-land thingy and rides; pretty cool stuff. Glowy plants, riding those blue dragon critters--can you tell I don't know squat about the movie? Still, the whole fam enjoyed it.
Okay, SO! Now, to something that really tickled my heartspot: lennelle gifted me with the most wonderful portrait of Sam from my ficlet 'And She Was'. I swear, it's so, SO lovely ... both from an artistic and emotive front. I'll tease you here, but you MUST go to her journal and see the whole thing. It's just delicious.
I can't express how really sweet it is to receive art. As a fan artist (primarily), I seldom get art done for my fics. beelikej cooked up a really excellent comm in The Quickie Bang, for which this art was done. Check out all of the comm's offerings! <3<3<3
