Toys

Brrrrr it's getting cold...

After a bizarrely warm November, it's starting to get pretty cold indeed around these parts. Christmas decorations are everywhere. Shopping queues are getting longer. This morning I heard "Merry Christmas (The War is Over)" on the radio- the first Christmas song I've heard in 2011. And a few days ago I posted a TON of cards and letters to readers who had written to me- so it is OFFICIALLY close to Christmas. I can now safely announce it.

You may rejoice.

And the competition winners may ALSO rejoice, because the books I have to sign have finally arrived. I'll sign them all this weekend, have them ready to be picked up on Monday or Tuesday, and then hopefully you'll be getting your prizes over the next few weeks. It'd be cool if you could get them BEFORE Christmas, so that's what we're working towards.

There's still a lot of work going on in my house. I'm getting one of the rooms refurbished- COMPLETELY redesigning it- as well as the kitchen redone, and that's been going on since the start of October. Basically, it means a lot of noise and hassle and interruptions, so I haven't been able to focus on Book Seven, which I really would have liked to have started by now. But hey, I'm not worried. My house is going to RULE when it's all finished, because finally I'll have a proper place to store my toys.

A lot of you may not know this, but I love toys. I collect movie memorabilia and props and stuff, and also comic-book statues. To give you an idea of the kind of things I'm talking about, here are a few action figures...


... and a rather large Iron Man (I've put a book beside him to give you an idea of scale)...


Oh, and here's a 12 inch figure of Sweeny Todd about to give a 12 inch Ichabod Crane a very close shave...


Boy oh boy do I love toys...

As you can imagine, my place is full of equipment boxes right now, so I'm going to leave you with a picture of one of my cats- Pooper- doing what cats love best: clambering into cardboard boxes for no apparent reason.

I hope your home renivations get completed soon! It will be so nice for you then! :D And I can't wait for you to get started on book 7!

Baby Bella! (Isabella Midnight) said...

5th? :P

Kribu said...

I'm preparing for a move (God, the books... the books. I have to pack ALL the books. Thousands of them!) and every single new cardboard box we procure will have a cat sitting inside it the moment we put it down, so the work procedure always involves the extra step of "remove cat from the box" between "put box down" and "put stuff in the box".

I love cats in boxes. :D

Iain said...

I'm sure that cats get in boxes in an attempt to stick two metaphorical fingers up at Schrodinger.

Ayesha said...

Wow awesome action figures!!!!!
Oh Derek your cats are always doing something weird but they are incredibly cute!!!! xD
And yes it is getting bizarrely cold over here as well! I really hope it doesn't snow but something tells me it will...

ValkryieCain said...

Andrew said...

toys!!!! I like the full size Iron Man. And I don't even want to imagine packing up my books. I have way tooooo many (something like over 800 at the moment) all of varying sizes and some that require extra care.

Derek when I emailed the email address about my address (for winning the books, which I'm really really looking forward too :D) I never heard anything back. I just want to make sure they get to me and what not :)

NJ Maverick said...

One of them went to sick bay or something, and on their way back they starting SINGING at the top of their lungs!! You could hear them from the class room. Everyone was laughing, it was so obvious that try were out of it like!!
And the other boy nearly fell off his chair, soo funny!!

Sabrina Sparrow said...

When I was little I used to have a thing about collecting every TY Beanie Baby going... and yes, I still have them... ALSO! DEREK! I love your cat! Sooooo adorable! My cat has an obsesson with sitting inside bags. Any bag, he's not fussy. My cat is weird...

Chloe G said...

Chloe G said...

Snoogy said...

Kribu said...

It's been a weirdly warm autumn here - we should be having snow for a month now at least, but nope, nothing yet. Getting so tired of the constant +3...+6°C and rain... wish we had snow already, at least it wouldn't be so dark all the time.

Shadow Whispers said...

Our bus was really late today as well, but we didn't have to walk *happy dances*

Chloe G said...

Pokémon + Minecraft = Pokécraft said...

Pssst... Derek! If I wrote to you now, would you be able to get a card back to me before Christmas? :O I'm gonna start a Derekian Christmas card collection xDDD

Hope you have a good Christmas Derek :DDD

Chloe G said...

Shadow9 said...

Why you saying sorry? It's not your fault my mum and dad are dead.

Chloe G said...

i dont know, it just felt like i should say sorry

Lola said...

Hello eveyone!!!!!

Shadow9 said...

It's okay - you didn't need too, it's the drunk idiot who killed them in a car crash the hung himself who should have said sorry.

Shadow9 said...

Hi Lola, *high fives*

Chloe G said...

hi lola *hugs all round*

Shadow9 said...

Ahhhh... Life sucks and I had double English today with one of my least favourite teachers.

Chloe G said...

i had english aswell, i like my teacher, she is nice, we are doing 'the hitch hiker' by roald dahl

Shadow9 said...

What's your teachers name? Mine's called Mrs. Ray.

Chloe G said...

my teacher is called miss biscoe

Shadow9 said...

Nice name... Just before English I had German so I had to bully my brain to start thinking I again instead of 'ich habe' and 'du bist sehr aerglich' and stuff like that.

Skuttlebug96 said...

How can I contact you, because i would love to write to you :D great blog btw

Chloe G said...

Shadow9 said...

Shadow9 said...

There you go.

Millyw said...

Haha! I love the Iron Man figure, it makes the book look small! I'm easily amused as you can tell :D, I Love Skulduggery BTW! Milly x

Chloe G said...

Shadow9 said...

The iron man is good, but a life-size Skulduggery would be better.

Chloe G said...

Shadow9 said...

See, ya Chloe!

Robin Snowscar said...

Shadow!!!

Shadow9 said...

Hi Robin!!! Good to see ya!

Robin Snowscar said...

Shadow9 said...

I'm guessing by your comment on The Cavern you want me to write more? Oh and did you leave a good luck comment on Exams?

Robin Snowscar said...

Correct and no... am in the process LOL

Venice Rain said...

Robin Snowscar said...

My room has a distinct lack of toys... until you look under the bed and I have like 50 books on my shelf including Game of Thrones ^ and obvioulsy Skulduggery Pleasant then more books under the bed :D LOL Shadow

Robin Snowscar said...

*hugs back*

Shadow Whispers said...

anyone here?

Kribu said...

If I had more space, I'd probably have more toys, too. As it is, I've had to choose books instead.

And I succumbed to the temptation earlier this week and got the shiny new SP paperback set (1-5) on Amazon UK... not that I need them, or that I have anywhere to put them, but... they're so shiny. And pretty. And they have the short stories. Sigh.

Sparky Braginski said...

Hey? Anyone here? I find it REALLY difficult to write on my iTouch.


I just wanted to say that I'll be spending Christmas here, when I can.

CharlieLamia said...

I did not think it was possible, but Derek just got cooler.

I LOVE IRON MAN
BUT BATMAN MORE
AND SWEENEY TODD
AND COLLECTIBLE FILM PROPS

Collectible figures are the best!
Happy Friday all :) x

Sparky Braginski said...

Last Saturday of term for me.


Monday? Am I going to survive it?





































Hellzyeah I am! ONE MORE DAY OF SCHOOL BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DogsLikeBones said...

MY GOD I LOVE THE SWEENY TODD ONE! EEK! EPICA! ^~^

I only have time though for this one comment me thinks, so I had to say that. HAPPY DECEMBURR DEREK! AND TO ALL YOUR CATS, AND DOGS, AND TOYS, AND PEOPLE WORKING ON YOUR HOUSE! MAKE SURE TO LET THEM KNOW HOW HONOURED THEY SHOULD BE TO WORK ON YOUR HOUSE!

Sarah ViEu2011 said...

OMG, it seems that you really love toys xD

In Germay it's the same with the weather, so freezing -_-

haha, the cat, so cute :)
my friends cat do that all the time. Everytime I'm there, it's like 'where is your cat? you have one, don't you?' :)

CountessMC said...

That cat is so CUTE!!
I would like to ask where the first action figure is from?

Skulgirl13 A.K.A Deryn Mellifluous said...

OMG I LOVE SWEENEY TODD!!!! THAT IS THE MOST AWESOME ACTION FIGURE EVER!!!!

Lilie said...

Cool stuff Derek!

Dragona Pine said...

I might have only just seen this post but I have to go! Night guys!

Thalia Jane - Blogland Detective said...

Ha! Indeed cats do like boxes! We don't have many 'round my house, though, so my cats use my laundry basket instead. Little buggers.

Toys are awesome. I've always kinda wanted to collect these sort of things, but my cats would break them, I'm too lazy, and I don't have any place to put them :P That Iron Man is bad ass, though.

Your kitty is totally cute.

Shadow Whispers said...

hey guys! anyone still here?

Sparky Braginski said...

I'm here Shadow!

Shadow Whispers said...

hey sparky!! *hugs* how are you?

Sparky Braginski said...

Good, sorry if I'm slow to respond, I'm watching a movie...

Sparky Braginski said...

I need to go now...

Chloe G said...

hi everyone im back

barmybex said...

Iron Man is staring at that book as if to say "you want me to read that?!"
Love how cats climb in boxes for no reason.

Hope I get a Christmas card or message from you. :D
Hope the refurbishments go to plan. We NEED book 7!

Chloe G said...

no one is here..... im going to watch im a celeb

Sparky Braginski said...

I'm back again, but not fully.

Danielle Corcoran Hanlon said...

Hehe. So this is why "The Forbidden Planet" in Dublin is mentioned in "Deathbringer"! My Dad loves the pic of Iron Man, one of his most fav. superheroes ever next to Spiderman! Merry Christmas anyway, and if you see your cousin, Naomi ("Faceplant!") i asked her to say hi to you! :)

Viola Midnight said...

Derek! Please answer! I want to send you fanmail, but where do i send it to?

MY LIFE IS SO HARD

nights.raven said...

adorable cat!

Viola Midnight said...

Also, if you don't mind me asking, is there any news on the movie?

Viola Midnight said...

nights.raven,
its the cutest I ever seen. Well it makes sense that Golden God Landy would have an adorable cat! :)

nights.raven said...

yup :)

Acacia Volt~ The Supreme S'K said...

Boys and their toys, eh? ;D

I sent you a message once; why you no reply!? Alas! I shall send it again. :P

Adoring the Iron Man! SQUEEEEE!! Iron Man is by far the best superhero... fine, it's personal choice. Isn't it odd how ever superheo either has powers or is rich? Funny how that works out. There should be a new breed of superhero... ;D

I understand that you haven't tried Timtams, and how you've must probably tried Penguins, but please tell me that you've tried Reese's PB cups! They're TO DIE FOR! (Hehe Skulduggery...)

Have you seen/read Howl's Moving Castle? AMAZING! Christian Bale's voice acting for Howl is really well suited, too. :D WATCH IT!

Oh... no more tea...

Well, for Christmas I hope you recieve some fabulous toys, for you, that come in oversized boxes, for your cats. And what about your dogs? How do they celebrate the festivity?

Ciao ciao all!

Xxx ~ S'K

GenesisAggelos said...

That Sweeney Todd statue...is...AWESOME... Im jealous >< Do you have anything Batman? Im a huge Batman fangirl ^^

ALSO DEREK! You still havent consented to give Legolas and me away at our weddings D: Do you not love us?

Hurry up already with book seven! Im already impatient for the next one, I cant wait until World Book Day :D

Hey Derek!


Christmas is a busy time for all...!

Well, yes i completly understand why you like collecting memorabilia, and your Sweeny Todd figure is so cool! I really like Sweeny Todd.......! ;P
I love cats. I love boxes. So i find cats in boxes adorable! <3 (may i ask, but is Pooper the name of you cat...?) i love your cat! he/she is sooooo gorgeous!!! <3

I watched Hanna (the movie) last night.
EPIC!
Check it out!
:P
Saoirse Ronan (who plays Hanna) is awesome..!
She's an isish actor too! (which makes her even more awesome!

Derek, when your house renovations are complete, can we see some pictures?

:D

Sparky Braginski said...

I expect Val V will be here soon...

Shadow Whispers said...

I expect so, and more ameriminions.... this is there kind of time zone right? *no idea fails at maths*

Sparky Braginski said...

Well I have lots of clocks and, providing Bal V finish school at three, they should be here soon.

Sparky Braginski said...

ValV.

Shadow Whispers said...

See, I kind of knew it, but not really, that was a lie

Marian Legend said...

You know, it really is astounding how many comments an author can get on his blog just by talking about toys and cats in boxes.

Though that IS one really adorable kitty.

Valkyrie V. said...

Derek you are so very correct about the competition winners being happy... *is rejoicing*



And I wanted you to know, but at my school we have to write a letter to an author about what they wrote and how it affected us... AND I PICK YOU. You've changed my entire freaking personality, so the was NO way I wouldn't pick you. And every thing that's completely demented and insane about me? YOUR FAULT. But thanks, because now I can scare people away with a glance...

Shadow Whispers said...

hey Val

Sparky Braginski said...

I was right!

Valkyrie V. said...

DEREk look at these youtube videos me and Amanda made! We're Valkyrie and China, obviously, and while it's easy to tell I'm Valkyrie, it isn't so easy with China, considering she has red hair... But here's the names of the videos:

Valkyrie Cain and China Sorrows not-so-great intro

Valkyrie and China are ever so slightly insane...

Caelan tries to marry Valkyrie Cain... and fails.

China is alive! Wait, no, she's dead


(WARNING: They're ridiculously long, particularly the Caelan one, and most of the time the camera is sideways... Blame the cell phone. And Amanda. Definitely Amanda. And if at some point there's an english accent or someting, it's fake...)

Sparky Braginski said...

Though I won't be here for much longer...

Val V I need to tell you something. You must stop doing things on Saturdays.

I also have a question. How long until you are on holidays?

Valkyrie V. said...

Sparky, that's kind of weird that you predicted I'd come on... *speaks very matter-of-factly* But I get out of school at 2:30 my time. I just happened to have been looking at photos none of my friends will ever get to see, because I was wearing pink dresses in most of them, and if they saw them I'd never hear the end of it...

Valkyrie V. said...

I'm on holidays in... *checks calendar* ...in two weeks exactly.

Sparky Braginski said...

I'm on holidays on *checks watch* Tuesday exactly.

Valkyrie V. said...

Haha... Derek put "refurbished" instead of "refurnished" XD


DEREK I POINT THESE THINGS OUT BECAUSE YOU MUST KNOW.

Sparky Braginski said...

Have you seen 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'

BYE!!!

Valkyrie V. said...

Sparky, you said there's a hole in your finger, yes? Did that happen because of a pencil, by any chance? Because there's a hole in the palm of my hand (you can imagine how irritating that is, especially because its the hand I write with) and it happened because of a pencil. A PENCIL. And it's still slightly bleeding...

Valkyrie V. said...

Derek, you named your cat Pooper the same thing I call Peren - my brother - except nicer.

Shadow Whispers said...

refurbished is a word, it means the exact same thing, in fact I don't know if refurnished is a word.... it most likely is though

Valkyrie V. said...

My mom asked what I wanted for Christmas, AGAIN, and she said, "You can't say Ireland or Derek Landy." And then we were discussing what would happen if I got Derek for Christmas. It was an odd conversation.

Valkyrie V. said...

DEREK I MUST ASK AGAIN...


For a drawing of a scary purple Necromancer unicorn who stabs people.

Valkyrie V. said...

Oh, and I have the same weather as Ireland. Seriously. It's a fact. Not a scientific fact, because as Skulduggery points out there's no such thing, but it's still a fact. Yay! I have the same weather as Master Derek! :D

Valkyrie V. said...

*screams (in real life as well)* OH MY GOSH IT'S DECEMBER! DECK THE HALLS WITH SOMETHING SOMETHING FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA! JINGLE BELLS JINGLE BELLS JINGLE ALL THE WAY!!! CAROL OF THE BELLS! WINTER WONDERLAND! PRESEEEEEENTSSSSSS! YAAAAAAY!!!


We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

And maybe this year Valkyrie will get a Christmas present from Skulduggery!

Valkyrie V. said...

*is looking at the 13 Skulduggery books I already own* You will have friends soon, I guarantee... *hugs book* Yes... You will...

*glances around and sets book down* I wasn't just talking to an inanimate object or anything...

Valkyrie V. said...

*sets down Death Bringer* I can't believe she was dropped into the penguin enclosure...

Riki Fresh said...

I like to collect Doctor Who toys. Doctor Who is brillant. I have figures of all eleven doctors, a tardis, and a sonic screwdriver. Yep. I'm a nerd.

Valkyrie V. said...

DEREK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME THAT YOU SEE THIS!


I read the Laura interview, and I must admit, it was an odd feeling. It was like reading something I wrote but don't actually remember writing, because... well, I can't explain it, but it was sort of like... We have a LOT in common, I'll say that. And I don't mean to sound like the fan who says that about everything and is entirely annoying (I do not agree with everthing, I'm incredibly stubborn; and while I may be annoying, it's in a different way), but I really act the same as Laura. Obviously it's different, seeing as how I'm twelve and she's twenty-something, but we have similar personalities. I mean, REALLY similar. RIDICULOUSLY similar. Granted, I probably got some of my personality traits from Val in the book, because I read them so often, but now that's simply how I act. And if Val is Laura, then I act like Laura does. Basically, the whole thing is just really weird for my part... I'm trying to think of a better way to explain this, but I can't...


So anyway, tell Laura this! I wanna know how she reacts!

Valkyrie V. said...

Derek, I'm gonna make you something for Christmas. I had a brithday party for you, and now I'm going to make Christmas presents for you. Yes, yes, I will... Probably Skulduggery related, because that would be easiest...

Valkyrie V. said...

While I'm on the first page, I have to say this:


I AM A NINJA. FOR REAL.


But you don't know that, because it isn't right above this.

Valkyrie V. said...

Last comment on this page! Wheeee!






HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!

DON'T BE NAUGHTY, BECAUSE SANTA'S WORKING WITH CAELAN IN THE STALKING BUISNESS!!!!
