From the Diary of Christina Farmer: “November 19th, 2017. I was SO proud of Douglas. Well, I mean, I AM so proud of Douglas. I mean…I don’t really know what I mean anymore. Despite the unintended burden I couldn’t help feeling from having to raise Meredith practically on my own after the doctors discovered her tumors and amputated her feet, Douglas was Living his dream. Not many of us can genuinely say that. But he was doing it. He was ACTUALLY becoming an astronaut. 2 years of classroom work. 3 years of tests. 10-months of survival training. And 21 years of telling me that someday he will blow me a kiss from 220,000 miles above our house. All for a 30-second spacewalk that…well…that might have….no. It’s fine. Douglas is fine. He’s just a little jaundiced from the trip and I’m just in disbelief that he’s home safe. I better go make dinner for them.... "The Astronaut" goes on sale May 10th at @toyqube
*From the diary of Christina Farmer: November 26th, 2017 Douglas is NOT fine. He’s sweating like a Chicago Bull. His skin has gotten yellower. Is that a word, "yellower”? Regardless, he is literally changing color in front of me. His skin is the color of a fucking Simpson, for Pete’s sake. And it doesn’t feel like HIS skin, if that makes sense. Ah, I know it doesn’t. Nothing makes sense right now. He’s so happy. He did it. Why can’t I be happy too? "The Astronaut" 10" collectible figure designed by myself X @toyqube goes on sale May 10th at toyqube.com
