A Pocket Full of Murder

*squeeeeee*! and a Virtual Auction

I got an unexpected package in the mail from Laurie King today! And inside was a gorgeous white t-shirt with the cover of The Game on it! Plus, a nifty stand-up promotional card for the book, with the same artwork and a blurb that reads, "This game's too good for the world's greatest detective to take on alone. Fortunately, she'll have some help from her husband." (Hee.)

There's only one sad thing in all of this.

The T-shirt is extra large. Which means that, much as I love it, I'll never be able to wear it. It's not long enough for a nightshirt, and much too baggy on me to wear otherwise. It's also too big for my tall skinny husband -- not to mention that it would be wasted on him, as he's not an LRK fan...

So, I am going to take bids on this one. Not for money or anything material, but for anything else you might have to offer and think I might like: fics, fan art, vids, icons, layouts, feedback, whatever. It doesn't have to be Russell-related: in fact on the whole I'd prefer it wasn't (unless you're a web design whiz offering to do a new layout for The Beekeeper's Holmes Page, in which case I would definitely be interested).

Leave a comment outlining your idea for a bid, and once the bidding's over I'll look through the ideas and pick the one I like best. Once the winning bidder's delivered the goods, I'll mail them the t-shirt.

Let the bidding begin!


Hm. Maybe I should crosspost this to RUSS-L as well...
