Movie Swap with Blog Buddies

As some of you know, I belong to some wonderful blogging communities. One of those communities is the Geeks & Beauties group. The people are friendly, supportive, and high-spirited, and it’s all awesome! The admins hosts many group activities to participate in, including a movie and snack swap that was just too tempting to pass up.

The rules of the swap were simple: each participating member would spend no more than $20 on a movie (or movies) and some snacks a la Secret Santa style. We were each given a person to gift to, and set up wishlists with some of our most coveted items. I won’t say who I got just in case they haven’t opened their package yet, but I can show you what I got!

I received my swap goodies on Saturday—coming home to them after a long day at work. I was elated.

Oooh, the anticipation!!

After ripping open the package and peeking inside, I was…well…delighted.

I have been dying to get my hands on my favorite Studio Ghibli movies, one of them being My Neighbor Totoro. I couldn’t believe I had gotten it! Aaaaand Sour Patch Kids! How did I get so lucky?

Well, it was all thanks to Chris Baldock. The package didn’t give any indication as to who my swap buddy was, so I inquired, and discovered it was Chris! Thanks so much! I haven’t watched the movie quite yet, but I’m waiting for a good night to curl up and enjoy this Miyazaki classic.

As you can see, we have so much fun in the community, like card swaps and virtual group events! Blogging communities help make the activity worthwhile. I can’t wait until the next event!

Until next time, Nerds! And remember: sharing is caring: if you like this post, then spread the love, and don’t forget to tag me!

Life was meant to be lived nerdily, so what are you waiting for?

      Generally Miyazaki’s movies have an overarching message. One of the messages of Totoro could be about finding friendship in unexpected places. It took me a while to figure it out, though lol.
