A Visit From the Fairy Hobmother!
When I worked at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World, I used to run into Cinderella's Fairy Godmother all the time. Like seriously, ALL the frickin' time. We had lockers near each other. Disney World is a weird place. (What does a fairy godmother keep in her locker, anyway? She's frickin' magical, can't she just wave her wand when she needs something?)
This week was my first encounter with a slightly different fairy, though, the Fairy Hobmother! If you haven't yet seen any of the posts around the blogosphere, the Fairy Hobmother is on a mission to spread a little extra joy and light to bloggers! But instead of glass shoes and pumpkin carriages, he works in Amazon gift cards! (When he's not doing fairy stuff, he hangs out at Appliances Online, so he must be one of those tinkerer fairies, like Tinkerbelle! Oh, don't act like you haven't seen the Tink movie and don't know the different kinds of fairys. I know you have.) You can also find him on Twitter!
I'm trying to narrow down my wishlist of 87357845 items to figure out what I want to spend my gift card on! I always put WAY too much thought into these things.
Of course, since it's no fun for me to be all excited about shopping and leave you guys out of the fun, His Royal Hobmotherness mentioned that if you comment on this post, he just might pay you a visit, too! So let me know if you have ideas of what I should buy, or what kind of wishes you could use a fairy godmother/hobmother for! And seriously, what DOES Cinderella's godmother keep in her locker? And why did I never try to sneak a peek??
