Blessed with magic and firm upper arms.


I will have more to say in the near future about Meadowbright, Fairy of the Sun -- about how fate (and the U.S. Postal Service) brought us together. But for now let us all just sit and admire her. Be tanned and enlightened in her presence. For she is all things: she is Barbie, she is Xena; cocks her head shyly as a Tinkerbell, positions her scepter lustily as a Puck.

She is truly blessed with magic.

Um...did you say that you...um, are in *possession* of Meadowbright? Wow.

Do her boottops sparkle like in the picture?

Sadly, I only know her from her picture. But how could one presume to OWN such loveliness -- especially for two easy payments of $19.99? It can't be true.

Who would buy this bizarre item? Not men, b/c they don't buy dolls. Not women, b/c, well look at her...
I'd like to be privy to their marketing study.

Marketing? Who would employ such a base...um, science...when such a divine creature is involved? She was created in the impulse of a moment, I'm sure, and the creator figured that Meadowbright was capable of carrying her own and selling *herself* thank-you-very-much.

What I really want to know is who created her? Man or woman? (Or teenage boy enamored of fantasy novels?) And were they indulging in any sort of...substance during her creation? Snorting glitter, perhaps?

I agree, Sharon. I would love to sit in on the board meeting where the demographic target for this little...um...beauty was outlined.

Apparently the artist's name is "Kris Hamrick," so the gender is ambiguous. I could Google this person, I suppose, but I'm afraid of what other twisted mythical critters I might find. Gragamor, the transexual water goblin?
