Helloooooooo! And welcome to the 156th EVER newsletter from rathergood!
I have 2 treats for you today! Ham and Parsley! Here's the ham! Eat ham! For Glory! For Justice! For Victory!http://www.rathergood.com/ham_for_victory
And look! If that wasn't enough here's some parsley! Eat Parsley For Maximum Expansion!http://www.rathergood.com/parsley
In news since the last newsletter, Jacqui won the Hackney Schools Green Hero parent / helper award for 2011 which is supercool. Hooray for Jacqui!
Oh yeah if you're thinking about buying any Christmas presents, don't forget that the best thing you can possibly get for anyone is a rathergood tshirt or toy:http://www.printshop.co.uk/rathergood
I think that's about it for today except to tell you that I love you.
I LOVE YOU SO HARD!
I'd do anything for you. I'd make myself in to a sculpture for you because I know how much you love sculpture. I'll melt a load of bronze and I'll just drink that red-hot molten bronze like it ain't no thang.
I'll drink it right down and it'll fill me up from my toes to the tippy-top of my head.
While it's still molten I'll stagger round to your house (despite being in some discomfort as I will basically be a bag of burning skin full of molten bronze) and I'll knock on your door.
As you answer the door, I will just be able to blow you one last kiss before the bronze solidifies and I become a statue.
You'll probably need to scrape off some residual charred skin, flesh and hair, but once you've done that, give it a quick polish and you'll have a beautiful statue of me that will last a billion years! It will probably survive the death of the sun in fact and still be looking beautiful and shiny well after the heat death of the universe.
Mwah mwah superhugs!
