Meeting the Press…sort of…

The Proximity Warning Apparatus softly chimes in Goat’s left ear as she is alone one evening in the newly inhabited small brick shop on Hammerbridge Row. Sighing, she looks up from her inventory ledger and abandons poring over the rapidly dwindling space allotment, no longer hoping it will magically expand.

 She slips between the crates and over to the window, peering out at someone through the dingy crimson-framed panes, a most unusual man with a high-sitting hat that has a Press Card in the hatband. 

 Aiming her battered but now-repaired camera she captures his image as he cranes his neck looking about, scribbles furiously in his notebook and then looks all around again…

[23:50] Oscar Bellamy Penrose (newbabbagefreepress) scribbles

Goat smiles to herself and decides not to clean the windows after all…

      Merry Christmas! I loved having the chance to be an extra in the Special, the kitty singing and Avariel’s singing animations were the BEST, weren’t they?
