Hello, lovely readers! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and avoided receiving coal…unless that’s what you wanted, in which case I can’t help you.
We can all stop holding our breath as to whether AG made a good choice concerning Blaire’s story; Blaire is planning an actual wedding and a valid marriage-that is, a young woman is marrying a young man. Hallelujah!! Check out http://americangirl.wikia.com and http://americangirldollnews.com for more information. One more fascinating fun fact; Blaire is lactose intolerant!
Interestingly, the back of the book says she has ”just been diagnosed with a dairy allergy” but inside she is said to be lactose intolerant; which if you don’t know, aren’t the same thing. A dairy allergy entails anaphylactic shock and a hospital visit, being lactose intolerant (which is what I am) means you get an upset stomach or in some cases…er, can’t keep it down. However, most lactose intolerant people can just take a lactase enzyme if they want to eat ice cream or milk, and stay symptom free. Not sure if AG knows that they’re waydifferent? Apologies for the medical lesson, hehe.
One more announcement; There is a new member of Pleasant Street. She was featured in A Christmas Day Carol post…but as I didn’t show her face, I’m pretty sure you all just thought she was Ella, haha. (although Quinley thought she was Isabelle, so maybe that was the popular opinion?) I’m relatively sure her name is Eileen, but…we haven’t gotten acquainted yet, so I’m not positive….
Are you excited for Blaire? Glad to breathe again?
What did you get for Christmas?
