Let’s play the travelling lemon.
Reblog with the name of the city you are now in! I’m sending this lemon from the lovely town of Forli (Italy). Who wants to catch it?
I’ll catch it in Albany, NY, USA! :D
Catching it in Leicester, UK! *Catches it and drops it immediately*
In that case *from beside you on the sofa, catches it as you drop it*
Calling all members of the Cabin Crew, I have a proposal for you. I was thinking last night (as I occasionally do) and hit upon an idea of how we might show Mr Finnemore a measure of just how many fans he has and how much we appreciate his work.
With this in mind, I thought it might be an idea to send him pictures of ‘lemons by landmarks’ (it sounds like a modern art piece) all over the world, taken by the fans who live there and delivered along with a message. Or, to put the plan in the form of lists…
Good question, and I think it’s a problem quite a few people have been facing. If you don’t have a specific ‘landmark’, then instead place your lemon either a) next to something that makes that place special to you or b) somewhere quirky where you would absolutely not expect to find a lemon. This can a building, an object, a pet, even- whatever you like. Hope that helps!
The first of our contributions to the Travelling Lemon book Pudu and I are doing for the magnificent Mr John Finnemore, starring… my pony!
Sparky was very bemused by what was going on, but he was very patient and allowed us to a-fix a lemon to his bridle. He got extra carrots for his trouble :)
Thank you to everyone who has got involved with the ‘travelling lemon project’- the response has been far, far greater than I’d anticipated and it just goes to show what a BRILLIANT fandom this is!
Now, since the contents of this book will plainly be wonderful, we need an equally wonderful front cover to go with it. With this in mind, it would be wonderful if those very talented graphics makers and artists out there would make one for us to use.
If you could send your covers to email@example.com by 30th May, we’ll gather them all together and run a poll to see which entry will be used on the front of the book. All other entries will be bound within so nothing will be left out :-D
Edit: The dimensions of the photo paper = 4 x 6 inches, so if the artwork could be about that size it would be wonderful.
In response to the enthusiastic response and Tumblr’s somewhat erratic tag showing habits, we have set up an gmail account for lemony images to be sent to.
Please e-mail your pictures, messages etc to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all so very much for getting involved. It means a lot :-D
