This installment of Willow Wednesdays is a bit different, and with good reason:
Today is Willow’s birthday! (Well, according to DeviantArt. If it’s wrong, blame them.) Here’s hoping for the very best of birthdays and nothing less to a wonderful artist and equally wonderful person! If you want to wish her a happy birthday, click one of the links below and leave her a message! (Well, maybe not the Society6 link…then again, buying some of her goodies would be a nice birthday present!)

Two things to get your Tuesday rolling. First, I forgot to mention that The Doubleclicks, our favorite sister geek-folk-rock-with-cat-keyboard duo, are holding a live streaming concert this coming Sunday, Valentine’s Day! Well, technically it’ll be at midnight GMT and 1:00 AM CET, but it’s on Valentine’s Day in the Western Hemisphere – 3:00 PM Pacific, 6:00 PM Eastern. There’ll be songs about love, dinosaurs, geeky fun things, and more! It’ll be on YouTube; click here to watch, or here to learn more about the band. See you there!
And a Happy Birthday to awesome pal Shei Darksbane! You know her as part of Darksbane Books and the main author of the Dakota Shepherd series, but she has also been a good friend in good times and bad, and one of my favorite people. Shei, I hope your birthday kicks butt! (In a good way!)
So, in all the excitement surrounding the recent first anniversary of the Monkey Queen, I may have forgotten to mention that it was also…my birthday. And since it was, I may have decided to gift myself a few things.
Barbossa looks just as awesome as I expected; Jack Sparrow should be ticked that he came in second-best. Violet and Mrs. Incredible got there in one piece, and I’m grateful for that; those figures look quite fragile. I’ve never even seen Wreck-It Ralph (I know, I know), but Vanellope came with the others, so. And the Rapunzel is adorable, even if she may be getting on Merida’s nerves.
Yeah, I’ll probably need to expand to a second shelf soon. And the flash on my smartphone does make Sabine look rather orange. But I’m quite pleased with the way my collection is shaping up! I just need half a dozen figures to fill out my Disney Infinity 1.0 and 2.0 wants. And then just Minnie to finish…
Aw, crap. I would write this on new release day. And Chewie and Han look so good, and I need all the Rebels figures now, and I don’t have to go to Best Buy for Mulan…
Which is why I’ll mention again that I have a Disney Infinity wish list on Amazon. Belated birthday presents will not be looked down upon!
