What an amazing surprise!
Did you make the iconograph? I love it.
Loved the letter as well.

We here at Shining Imp studios take pride in doing all work by hand in house* by the highest quality.. high quality.. we use some imps but we need to colour and assemble them ourselves as the imps are not great at that.

*well I use a steel die to cut the image out so it changes because when I'm making things in bulk it has to be doable in a sensible period of time!

I say, the mailman has been good to me yesterday and today- a letter from Steeljam and Nonny mouse! Thank you, both of you! I love the stickers Nonny, and those stamps are very good Steve, even if I had to resort to using the heater to help the colour change as my fingers have been freezing (start of winter and its been decidedly cool!

Thank you Squigglyx for the lovely letter. I'd volunteer to drive a cart but I'm a bit far away from AM. Plus I don't have a cart. Or a horse. Or any knowledge of how to drive a horse :P

I think you just go 'yah' and jiggle the reins.

I don't know how to drive a horse (clearly) but I can ride them!

Not a mention of lemon or black pepper in my AAEPGBPSPOPP communication.

AAEPGBPSPOPP frowns on the consumption of our patients, even those who have succumbed to the greater good of science, both for moral and ethical reasons, and because of the potential for contamination by hazardous laboratory chemicals deleterious to humanoid health if swallowed.

I'm told that AMA-ETO* has a most informative brochure that addresses your concerns.

I got my letter from the AGSKDRHGKH* on the first day of shut down part 2 here. I loved the letter but will have to respectfully decline further moves into membership. I have tried an oyster. Once. And between not getting the menacing tone right in the method and the heavy machinary involved I'd probably end up cutting my hand off anyway and who would open George's food then?


Thanks Phalarope

AAEPGBPSPOPP is an acronym.

AAEPGBPSPOTH is a sneeze.

Thanks for the opportunity to clear up that matter.

I love oysters, but if I can consuming them raw, they need to be small so I don't have to chew them, because I can't. Cooked oysters are awesome in any size. I couldn't get enough charbroiled oysters when I was in NOLA.

I first had them in France with shallot vinegar, so vinegar is my preferred condiment with raw ones.
