argyle day

International Maggott Day is May 10th!

The Ascended Minion Project isn’t just about collecting trinkets of pleasure.  As Steve’s new Magic piece Forsake the Worldly tells us it is important to consider our emotional and spiritual needs.  Some of us are like family now and it is with that connection in mind I hope you will join me in celebrating International Maggott Day.

I take the inspiration of Steve Argyle’s late brother Mark Argyle.  He was a creative soul in his own right and also a force in multiple gaming communities.  He brought people together in his own unique way and although I didn’t get the chance to know him I am deeply moved by the endurance and continuing respect and admiration of his family.

On May 10th we will be celebrating not our mutual desires but our mutual connection with friends and family that make everything else we do matter.

In celebration of Father’s Day, Algy dedicates this field of Scottish Highland wildflowers to the many men among his followers. Algy is truly delighted that you follow his adventures, and thanks you all very much indeed for your kind attention to a fluffy bird :) He hopes that you will all have a very happy day today.

If you are also a father, as he knows many of you are, Algy wishes you a very Happy Father’s Day!

Lots of fluffy hugs for you all :)))

Acknowledgements

When we register ourselves in the Ascended Minion Project, we are asked if there is anything unusual (even exotic) we would like to ask Steve.
I immediately thought about something that could be offered to all of you instead of something physical I would hoard for myself, so I asked if he could suggest a card-scene match for my first guest-oriented post, and I’m honored to offer you the first animated card based on an alter. I hope you all enjoy it!
I would also like to thank both the artist and Justin (Ascended Minion Project) for making this possible. Cheers!

 Good Morning from Scotland  
Via Flickr:
On cold January morning, having set my DSLR up to take winter sunrise on the Black Mount behind me, I thought I’d make the most of standing in knee deep snow at -7°C and take this shot on my iPhone, of a frozen and snow covered Loch Bà. Taken with my iPhone - the best camera you have is the one you have with you.

Oh, god, no, no, no…  I have a new Supercat head canon.

We all know Cat likes all her mail opened for her.  This… was Kara’s first week on the job.  By this point, she’s entirely used to unpacking Cat’s sex toy purchases, and in fact, mentally rates their quality based on Cat’s mood the following day. via @argyle-s

Hi! I'm a massive fan of outlander and I live in Glasgow, so I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw Cait shopping beside me in the department store on Argyl Street a few days before christmas! I was too shy to go up to her and say hi because she was with someone, but I overhead her talking to the staff and she was nothing but lovely, honestly, she was a ray of sunshine. Really regret not saying hi, but so happy I ran into her! She's so beautiful in person as well. P.S, love your blog! xx

Wow, what luck to run in to Cait. I have heard nothing but wonderful stories from fans about how lovely she is. Lucky you and thank you.
