    I LOVE the slideshow with this! I don’t suppose I could coerce you into doing one for next week’s post too?

      I’m actually inordinately proud of it, so I’d be happy to do it for next week! I was so pissed that WordPress didn’t support it, so I just went and hosted it elsewhere. Hope you don’t mind.

    Even though I don’t know most of the characters, this is adorable. And I am also impressed with the slideshow!

      Thank you! I’m glad you liked it! What other characters would you have suggested? I was oddly stumped at some points!
