I just saw a listing on eBay for an Oliver and Company pin that the seller claims is “rare”. It’s currently still available on the Disney Store website, for £9, not even low in stock. The eBay seller is charging £18.99! I feel like I should report it but there’s no option in the drop-down boxes for the seller being a profit-hunting buttface. Humph.
Tumblr Badge Trade #5
Firstly, I must apologise for taking so long to post this. I arranged a trade with dinejam here on Tumblr a couple of months ago, but have only just gotten around to uploading the photos. So, here’s what I sent: Here’s what I received: It’s very cute! Even though she lives in Wales, she is part of Guiding South West England (same as me!) so it was an interesting trade to...
Guide badges available to trade!
Hi! I thought it was about time I updated my list of badges I have available to trade. So, here’s a general (blurry) picture: [[MORE]]And here’s some more specific ones: Another one I have multiples of. Also have multiples of this one. I think it’s pretty… Only got one of this one. Once it’s gone, it’s gone! Top left, we have the centenary badge...
I just got really excited when I found that the US online Disney Store ships internationally, because there are so few pins on the UK store website, and none at reduced sale prices like on the American one. Chose two pins I really like, decided to get two of each so I would finally have some to trade, started filling in the information, selected my country… Then saw the shipping price. $35...
I got a record player!
Squee! It sounds so good! Plus, it’s pretty… there’s a Union Jack on the lid! Best (super early) birthday present ever. Currently listening to my Mum’s old Don McLean and Simon and Garfunkel LPs. I shall now be on the hunt for records. I’ll think I’ll have to buy 21 by Adele, since that is a) one of my favourite albums and b) what was playing when I first...
When it rains, it pours...
It has not been a pleasant couple of days. Got a £50 parking fine through the post yesterday for staying 19 minutes too long (completely by accident, I hasten to add, I left as soon as I saw the sign warning of the time limit) in a McDonalds car park. Don’t think I’ll be wasting my money on a McFlurry again anytime soon. Then today, when stuck in traffic on the M4, my car decides to...
I think Tumblr's eating my asks...
I had two people recently get in touch about badge trading, and I replied to both, then sent another message a week later, but still haven’t heard anything back. Either Tumblr is eating my asks or they’ve changed their minds, but I don’t know which >.< If Puddlelikeaduck or Charleybarley (I hope I got those right!) see this, can you please get in touch? Even if you...
Guiding - pen pal- badge swapper
puddlelikeaduck: Hello GG people. I am a Young leader from Norfolk. I live for guiding and love it so much, it takes up alot of my time too. I would love to swap stories and possible badges with someone. Please message me on here if you are interested! Thankyou :) Hey! I’m being completely dumb and cannot find the ask button on your tumblr to get in touch with you, but you reblogged...
How to scare my mum...
Heard this programme on the radio yesterday about fanfics and slashfics. I was listening with interest, and occasionally giggling at the references to pairings I like. My mum thought it was all very odd. Then there was some comment about popular subjects, including Harry Potter and LotR, and I said “Sherlock!” since they didn’t include it in their list. Mum turned to me and...
Listen up, 'cos I'm only gonna say this once.
It’s okay if you’re skinny. It’s okay if you’re chubby. As long as you’re healthy and happy, any size is okay. What is not okay is judging one because you’re the other. Just because you’ve got healthy curves, doesn’t give you the right to look down on those who have no curves at all. Who are you to judge when you don’t know their situation?...
Tumblr Badge Trade #4
Hey there! Some photos from my latest Guide/Scout badge swap, again arranged through Tumblr. Their page can be found here: Read-Outside. (I’m never sure if people are happy for me to post their first name or not, so I think I’ll stick on the safe side with just posting links!) Here’s what I sent: A metal Girlguiding UK centenary badge, and three cloth ones: Centenary Camp,...
nuagesverts asked: Happy Birthday Hariko! x
My parents were going to New York next week. Dad was going to go to the big Post Office, to try and get the Disney Pixar Mail a Smile and Send a Hello stamps for me, if they still had them. But they had to cancel their trip, which is a real shame for them. It also means that, once again, my plans to get my hands on those two lovely sheets of stamps are foiled. Curses. Yeah, that was about all I...
Guide badges available to trade
Edit 1/5/13: Please note that I’ve done an updated list with new pictures. If you want to see what I’ve got available to trade, please look here. Hey there! Here’s a quick summary post (with pictures, whooo!) of the Guide badges I currently have available to trade. Centenary: These are all the centenary-related badges I have to trade. The black oval one is from the...
Guide/Scout Badge Swap: USA
Hello again! More badge swap photos, this time with a lovely Girl Scout in the good ol’ USA. She can be found here on Tumblr, as ExploreCreateWonder and I know she’s looking for more people to trade with, so if you fancy some nice badges, go and get in touch! So, here’s what I sent: I tried to be artistic by adding a trefoil at the bottom of the letter. I’m not sure it...
Guide Badge Swap: Canada
Hello there! A while ago I set up a trade with a lovely Canadian girl here on Tumblr, swapping some Guide/Scout badges. I promised over a month ago (shameful, I know. I would hang my head in shame, but then I wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard to keep typing…) to post the photos, so here they are! Long overdue though it may be… Here’s what I sent: (That square Royal...
Well, you finally managed it, Tumblr...
Through all the last updates, when people were moaning about new buttons or changes in layout, I just responded with a “meh, at least it still works.” After a short while, they were easy enough to get used to, and usually not that major a change. But now. But. Now. Y’all gone effed up my tracked tags. WHY. I used to be able to just go along, happily looking through them. It...
Yo! I’m back from Germany. Well, I was back from Germany nearly two weeks ago. Now I’m back from being a lazy sod who hasn’t done anything for the last 11 days… So, some exciting stuff… I just got my badges from the forementioned fellow guider in Canada, so I’ll post a photo soon. I also just arranged a trade with someone in the US, which is amazing, so...
Curse you, Team GB!*
If you don’t stop winning so many gold medals, I’m not going to be able to afford all the next day stamps! Also, curse you Royal Mail for only selling them on minature sheets. It would be so much more affordable to buy one of each instead of 6. I don’t think it’s very likely that I will get to collect them all unless I rob a Post Office (oh the appallingly unfunny...
What are your favourite Avengers quotes?
Tumble-Bees! I’ve been trying to think of a funny/representative quote for each Avenger (plus Nick Fury, Coulson and Loki) either from Avengers Assemble or from individual films (e.g. “Do you fondue?” from Captain America). Can you suggest any for me? Also, I finally watched Captain America last night, can’t believe I waited so long to enjoy that awesomeness! I never used...
