Swag and Sundays in My City

Unknown Mami  

Welcome to Chico, CA, for Sundays in My City. Unknown Mami hosts this fascinating tour of bloggers' hometowns. Visit her here to hop around the world.

It's nice of the retail stores to consider writers' needs. I'm curious as to why this "Magic Word Recharging Acid" is empty, though. (?)
 Imagine Agnus' surprise when she tried shoving these M&M Chocolate Bars into her electronic "friend".
 I WON!! Captain Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh made my day last Monday, when he told me that I won all this great CassaStorm swag! The mousepad has me typing at record rates. The mug sits in front of my computer screen. It's so nice; I don't want to use it, and...well, I'm a happy winner.
 I took this pic (with me in it) per Alex's request. Look closely and you'll see a smidgen of my book, Just the Right Time. How'd that get in there? (Answer: pathetic subtle self-promotional tactic.)

Be safe and have a peaceful new week.
Don't recharge your batteries with Hershey's. Support fair-trade.
Cheers!

  1. Maybe things would run better on M&M's?
    Look at you and the swag!! Very happy you were the big winner. And don't even mind the self-promo tactic - clever girl. Thanks for being a friend and fan and taking a chance on a geeky science fiction writer.
    Now, type like a maniac!!

  2. Holy crap, that's a lot of cool stuff! Congratulations! It almost makes up for making me picture an old woman named Agnes filling her "special friend" with chocolate.

    Almost.

  3. Nice swag! And here's a tip for Agnus -- if she eats enough chocolate, she'll vibrate all on her own!

  4. Chocolate might be just the thing to recharge my batteries!

    Congratulations on the win!

  5. Lol! I wonder if they meant the figurative batteries. I doubt they were that smart. How hilarious.

    Congrats on the win!!

  10. I needed new batteries today for the TV remote. I don't think those chocolate bars would have helped me much either. (They do look tasty though.)

    Congratulations on the win! Looks like quite a haul! :)

  11. Well that's just silly. Everyone knows that Peanut M&Ms are the only acceptable batteries for "friends."

    ReplyDelete
  12. that would explain the m&ms in my flashlight

  13. Wow, good stuff! Congratulations on all the goodies.

    Peanut M&Ms are definitely my batteries. Load me up with those and watch me go!

  14. I always crack up at things like those M&M mix ups! I just found a Target screw up where they have Ariel packaged in a Rapunzel box. Should have bought them. Those tend to be worth more when the company screws up.

    OMG on the win! That's some pretty nice swag! Congrats!

  15. Woohoo! Congrats on all that cool stuff! M&M batteries, there's a great concept! :)

  16. I can't help liking those bottles, Robyn, and I can think of some natural jungle juices to fill them with. Magic Word Recharging Acid is something we all need.

  20. Congrats on winning all that lovely loot!

    As for the M&Ms, the almond ones provide the healthiest dose of energy. (Tasty, too!)

  21. Congratulations on winning! That's some awesome swag. Lucky you!

  22. Congratulations to you... you winner. Winner, winner chicken dinner.

  23. Well, are you the lucky one winning all those goodies. Love the pictures. I don't think your self-promotion is pathetic at all. Yay, for you!!!

  24. Congratulations on winning Robyn, that's massive and much deserved!

  25. Thank you, all. I'm very happy. Alex and his publisher are out-of-this-world generous. I love all my swag.

    Sorry about the image of Agnus filling her "special friend".

    Keep a smile and a stash of fair trade chocolate and/or (for the ladies) spare batteries.

  26. I guess the Magic Word Recharging Acid is empty because the writers probably didn't have enough money so they drank it in the shop without buying.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think chocolate could solve 87% of the world's problems :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congrats on winning!

    The Fair-Trade quip cracked me up. :-D

  29. Wow! That's some seriously cool stuff!

  31. I've always known that you are a winner.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Aha and finally after recharging my batteries, I have arrived. Ooh...sorry, where was I?

    Oh yeah, check you out with all that swag. Well done on the swag from the ninja dude. Yes, the same ninja dude who, rather worryingly, can almost leave a comment before I've even published a posting. Maybe it's his clone.

    And Robyn, more than a smidgeon. Show off that cover. You go girl!

    Chico, chocolate and real chocolate as opposed to that glorified wax Hershey's sells.

    Be well and keep smiling, Robyn.

  34. Oh you're so cute and such fun swag-- yay for you! Love the M&M batteries too. Although, now that I think about it, chocolate does recharge me, so maybe...
