Can’t wait to see what happens. :-)
If this happens…
Er, I’m not sure. But it would be amazing.
Lush are wonderful, and about 5 years ago they did a STARDUST bath bomb.
Last Friday Amanda went for a walk with Jason Webley, I went for a walk with my kids. I stopped off at the Cambridge Lush, spent too much money buying things that I know Amanda likes (eg massage bars with beans in, and the angels facial scrub stuff) and some of the things that I like (such as the Big shampoo).
When Amanda got home she proudly presented me with all the things she’d got as presents for me that I’d bought myself, and she’d happily bought herself all the things that I’d bought her. So our friends and family got extra Lush goodies that day…

A Different Kind of Offering: Bathing with Gaiman by Zenobia Frost
Bathing with Gaiman:
Before reading in the bath,
I ease the book’s
jacket off. I
the steaming water with one toe
and shuffle off my own dust cover
in and under,
holding the book above my head
like an umbrella. Then, spread
with my arms leaning on my legs,
I read, turning the pages
with the tip
of my tongue.
Later, while I scrub
or shave my legs
with my right hand,
I realise I’ve gone
cover to cover (or nearly).
The fingers of my left arm sulk
and strain, and I must
balance the book on my head
to flex the lameness out (and again
till feeling returns).
Then I swap hands and finish
my story and scrubbing,
to step out clean and complete,
steeped in someone else’s

She writes, edits, and types for a living, and occasionally orchestrates cabaret events that are really an excuse to drink tea. Her work has appeared in Stylus, Mascara, Small Packages, Burdock (USA), Rave Magazine, Famous Reporter, and Voiceworks, and she has performed at the Queensland Poetry Festival, Tasmianian Poetry Festival, and around Australia with the Queensland Touring Poets Program.
