It’s been a week and I still haven’t heard back on either Edgar Allan Poe or Hester Prynne, so at this point it looks like I’ll be filing them away into the lost but not forgotten list. As usual please let me know if you or someone you know has them! At least this time around I’m pretty confident that they didn’t end up in trash cans, since they were left at bookstores and not at restaurants where they could be cleared off a table and into a trash tub. 🙂 Most likely whoever took them simply never got around to checking them in. 🙂 I’ve had some critters that didn’t get checked in until 1.5 months later, so there’s still hope for these lil’ guys! 🙂
I haven’t heard back on either Nosferatu or Mr. Skeleton Head, so unfortunately it looks like they’ve been added to the lost but not forgotten list! If you or anyone you know has either one of these lil’ critters, PLEASE let me know that they’ve got good homes! I’d like to know that they’re safe and sound. 🙂
Looks like I’m going to have to put some more thought into where I drop any future adoptees. I quickly learned that I had a good turnover rate at San Diego Comic-Con (9 out of 11!) because it was a unique setting. First off, there’s a lot more foot traffic, so there’s a higher likelihood that someone will spot the critter. Then there’s the fact that there aren’t as many cleaning staff members going around, aside from people vacuuming and emptying trash cans and the such, so there’s not as much of a chance of having a lil’ dude getting swept off a table. Finally, the people at conventions are simply more likely to take up a lil’ crocheted dude compared to someone casually going about their normal daily lives. I’ve already determined that food service locales aren’t really a good spot for leaving adoptees, since busboys are pretty much trained to indiscriminately clear everything off the table, unless it’s something of high value. Lil’ crochet doll = not considered of high monetary value. Either way, now that I’ve learned a little from this adoption round, it means I’ve got some ideas for any adoptees that I drop off in the future! My noggin is ticking with ideas…hopefully I’ll have more successful drops in the future! 🙂
I’ve added a new page dedicated to my poor, lost buddies. The ones who were put out for adoption, and never to be heard from again. *Sniff*…at any rate, I’ve set up a separate page just for these lil’ guys, but hopefully the list won’t grow much more from here on out!
