Can you guess what I’m doing?
Hint: “I’m hooked on a feeling…”
You will need your geek hat for this one!
Or some variation thereof.
And you thought I just copied and pasted everything! Ha!
If you guessed that it had something to do with this weeks Fangirl Edit you’re almost there. You deserve a cookie for getting so far with such a random clue. hands out the cookies
While I was flitting around Second Life™ finding all the gifts in the Wayward Hunt I spent quite a bit of time in Reign looking for said gift. While I was waiting for everything to rez I noticed they had a front desk and, being the nosey woman I am, I decided to take a closer look. That’s when I saw this:
I squee-ed and giggled and just about fell over from the excitement.
In-world he does actually dance and he has the cutest little smile on his teeny, tiny sapling face! His little pot is also highly textured which just makes this replica so much better!
I forgot all about the gift and watched Groot dance his little heart out for almost an hour. Seriously, it was a good 45-50 minutes of Groot-watching. It’s the little things, you know?
I realise some of you aren’t as geeky as I am and are probably wondering who, or what, this Groot thing is. Simply, Groot is a character from the comic book-turned-movie Guardians of the Galaxy. He’s voiced by Vin Diesel and I swear this little Groot actually has some resemblance, but then I did stare at his dancing form for almost an hour so I’m bound to see more than what’s actually there.
Oh! I should probably mention that I did end up finding the gift, which of course made the adventure that much more fun. I left with the biggest, and probably cheesiest, smile on my face. I’ll let you decide:
I admit that I may have toned the smile down a bit so I didn’t look too much like a weirdo in a store full of other Wayward Hunters! Although if they’re able to see my “look at” crosshairs then it’s highly likely I did look like a weirdo for staring at one spot on the desk for so long. It was worth it!
My geeky heart is full again this week. Now please excuse me while I head back to Reign to watch Groot again.
