Guest Post: Bow Ties Are Cool

Hiya guys, it is I, Meg, from Bow Ties Are Cool. I'm lurking over here on Heather's blog as she is too much of a lazy lump to make her own blog posts this week, so poor Kate and myself were forced to fill in. Sigh.

...NO BUT SERIOUSLY. I was beyond honored to be asked by Heather to write a guest post, because she is such an amazing blogger friend and I want to be as pretty as her one day!

Well when Heather asked me to write a guest post for her, she suggested I write about something that inspires me day to day in the extremely exciting and madcap life of mine. So I thought about it, and after much consideration, I decided that in the spirit of being a Super Geek I may as well admit it: Magic. That's what inspires me every day.

Yep, magic. I still believe magic is real, and one day we'll realize we can speak to each other telepathically and fly around using only our minds, but that's more like a wacko scientific theory than anything. Anyway. Magic is something I think about every day. I think about it when I read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (an incredible book that you ought to read), about rival magicians in Regency England. I think of magic when I play Magic: The Gathering, or roll my trusty twelve-sided dice during a Dungeons & Dragons session.

It's not just silly nerd games that get me all riled over magic. It's the little things in life, the things that some people might attribute to a higher power. They're like little magic pods that burst with gold happy light. Like when you realize exactly what you want to do in life, and that realization makes you so happy you could cry, that's magic to me. Or when you're hugging the one person you love more than anything else in the world, and your heart fills up so much that you feel like you could pulverize an entire planet with a love-beam shot out of your eyes, that's magic.

I'm constantly reading about it, writing about it, drawing it, or feeling it. It's a constant part of my life, magic. If you don't believe in it, your life is just that much more devoid of unicorns. So read more fantasy novels, guys! Just sayin'!

Makes me think of the song "Do You Belive In Magic." Good jam! I totally believe that one day, teleporting or something will totally be done. This is such a cute post. Checking out your blog now because I've never heard about it until now... Shame! Hope all's well to you all.

I'm with Gee. . .I hope the Doctor is going to show up in my home one day so that I can have a safe journey into space (wonder if he allows kids in his TARDIS or not).

Love this post! And yay magic! I love that it inspires you, instead of fancy runways and expensive designers. Magic is so much better.

And I LOVEEE the colors of this outfit. Ah, it's perfect!
