This time it's a character from Rose Under Fire and by gosh it isn't Rose - it's IRINA. I'm pretty sure that if you haven't read the book there won't really be any spoilers here, but if you have, let me just say: RED BATHING SUIT WARNING. I don't know whether to laugh or to cry, really.

Irina arrived today and I got all excited and worried just looking at the customs label.

Excited because, well, Amanda has actually already made me four other literary action figures. Worried because, um, Ravensbrueck. You will have to leave some of Irina's accessories to your imagination. But don't worry, she is the BEST EQUIPPED BARBIE I HAVE EVER OWNED.

I bring you the experience of opening the package! This is what lay on top:irina storch



It is a diagram of a Storch. Fieseler 156. Not Irina's aircraft, but hey. Significant for other reasons.

And when you lift the paper, here she is. Look! she even comes with a pretty civilian summer dress so she can go dancing or something:

And here is her marvelous gear. Escape kit - maps, Russian spam, compass -irina escape kit



And parachute, of course. I hope she knows how to get it on.

She also happens to be a decorated Hero of the Soviet Union.

The osprey has laid an egg!

The wildlife center has a gripping blog here (I know, not everybody is as obsessed as I am):

http://blogs.swt.org.uk/osprey/

and I think this is the direct link to the webcam:

END of public service announcement No. 1.

PSA No. 2:

Sara has done a few more Sims characters including Sofya, Esato, Priamos and Abreha. Now if I can just get her to stick in some links to my books, because more people have downloaded Goewin than read this blog!

Sara is EVEN BETTER at timewasting than me. She has made Sims out of all my characters.

(She would do a Verity if I let her. But really it would be somewhat indecent to be able to download the Sim before I finish the book.)

I pass along this meessage from Sara to [livejournal.com profile] mhari: "Tell her to upload hers. Hers are better than mine because she made them herself, I think."

OK, I don't really get this, but if they make Goewin a banner and a couple of people vote for her (I guess she *is* a pretty good archer) I will be their best friends forever.
