Ok, so when we find a new fandom we both enjoy, speckleberry and I tend to email each other every day (thank god Gmail cascades emails :P). Now we'd been emailing and squeeing back and forth for a few weeks when I decided to put my Mad Internet Skillz to work. So I found out which agency signed Rachel (well, one... I think there's a few people who deal with her. Moving on!) and sent off an email. I didn't really expect a reply, but hey presto! Next day I had a reply. I asked if it was kosher if I send a photo for signing (with an SASE of course), she said no sweat so I print one off. Now I don't really like to just send a photo because it seems a little demanding, kind of like "Sign it NOW biatch" so I wrote a letter and Speckles sent me one to include. Off The Package goes.
I dont expect it back for a while, but what do I get the same day as my Tales of the South Seas dvds? Oh yes, that's right! A WEEK turnoaround, yo. That is impressive. I am impressed. (Although I'm kind of wondering what happened to my SASE that I sent to the agency because I think she sent the photo back herself... Which makes me feel bad.)
But wait! There's more! She replied to our letters. Seriously, who is awesome enough to actually write back these days? So basically my impressed/fangirl scale shot from an 8 to a 15 on a scale of 1-10 ;)
