    Hey there gang! :D

    You get an EXTRA special prize today! Double upload day! ^0^

    Yesterday, I had the pleasure of going bowling with my mom and nephew, a lovely family past-time. So, of course, I was sporting one of my villain bowling pins! I mean, honestly, how often do you get that chance? XD Lining up the strikes was the Maleficent Bowling Pin (65469)
    [​IMG]

    Needless to say, thanks to her wicked leadership, I managed to win both games! A rarity indeed cause my mom rocks at bowling! Hahah!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And now for today! :D

    After such a lovely outing yesterday, I figured a little whimsy and wizardry was required! So today, I sported my relatively new DSF Merlin with Archimedes pin (65386)!
    [​IMG]

    In fact, I had a book rep comment on how dashing my pin looked today! She said I made quite the outfit, with my blue (ish) shirt and white tie! Like Merlin's beard and cloak! Hahah! I hadn't even realized that connection! I suppose I just have naturally good taste. ;P
    [​IMG]

    And, for those of you who happen to have seen my latest joy in life (the shared pin with my dear Tai) I sported him just under my lapel pocket, over my heart. Just like Tai. :3

    Stay magical, DPF! See you Friday! ^0^

    Going out to breakfast on my day off (well, there's never a day off with the thesis, is there?)

    Happy Monday, DPF! :D

    I feel like it's been a while! Hahah! Probably because it has. ^^; Anywho! It's that time once again for Daily Pin Bling! :D

    Now, this one takes a little explanation. Each day, at the beginning of class, I have my students do what's called a Free Write in their journal. Each day, they're given a prompt and for five solid minutes, they write in response to the prompt. But today! It was a little different! Today, the prompt was titled "Pretty Pretty Picture." And, as you might be able to guess, they had to draw me a masterpiece the likes of which this world has never seen! And so, with that in mind, I wore a little something to give my students some artistic inspiration! Presenting today's pin, Mickey painting the Minnie Lisa (41252)
    [​IMG]

    This was one of my first zaps ever here at DPF, so it has a special place in my heart, board, and vest. ;P

    Keep it fabulous, DPF! See you next time!

    Hey gang! Sorry this week has been sparse. It's been a rough week. >.< In fact, I got kind of sucker punched with some news on Wednesday that laid me pretty low...

    So today! I figured I could use a little Force to push me through to the weekend. So today I sported the nifty Mickey Mouse Icon Rebel Alliance pin (59747)!
    [​IMG]

    Here's hoping the weekend will be better than the week!

    Stay strong, DPF! Merlin out!

    Goodness gracious! There has been a SEVERE lack of activity on this thread! The sacrilege!

    Anywho! It's time to ring in a new week, and a new month, and a new book! :D Today, my students turned in their Beowulf / Grendel papers, so we get to start the next text today! The Hobbit! :D And since that story is ALL about an unsuspecting hero, I figured who better than Arthur to ring in the new text! (51755)

    [​IMG]

    Also a new hair cut! D8

    Stay heroic, DPF! See you Wednesday!

    I love the idea...and it might interject some levity into my job as a mortgage underwriter for a major bank. I do have my stuffed Canadian Pluto displayed prominently at my desk. By the way, you are a lot younger than I assumed you were, Merlin.

    I'm going out for afternoon coffee and dinner, and I'm feeling very Vanellope today.

    That's adorable...and goes quite nicely with your sweater! Vanellope is so fun. I wish there were more pins of her. (Hint, hint, DSF PTD designers.)

    Love your Vanellope pin, MaryScribbles! Saw Wreck it Ralph for the first time last week - and I loved it. :)

    Greetings DPF! :D

    It's Monday! And do you know what?! I'm ecstatic! No! Not because it's Monday! BECAUSE I FINISHED MY GRADING!!!!! I have been grading mediocre papers practically non-stop since Thursday (ask MaryScribbles) and I have been in a ~sour~ mood because of it. BUT TODAY! I finished them!

    And handed them back. XD Hence my pin today. More than likely, and hefty number of my students will think I'm quite the monster today. So, wore a pin accordingly. Today I sported the fearsome Maleficent and Dragon in the Castle (48203)
    [​IMG]

    And while I was breathing fire when I handed the papers back, now I am truly jubilant! :D Because now I'm going home and playing the HECK out of Fire Emblem! /nod
    [​IMG]

    Congrats, DPF! You get an A for today! Stay studious!

    This is an awesome idea...so much so that I have borrowed it =) I added a few pins to my work lanyard and asked my manager if that was ok and she loved it (as did my coworkers) I have also had customers comment on how nice my pins are.

    Not going to lie but sometimes it does help to cheer me up when it's been a bad day at work.
