I’m still learning about the IGGPPC Camp, but the thing I loved most about real life camp (and the only one I’ve been to is band camp) was staying up late with friends. And pranks.

Nuts! And sprinkles because they are fun!

Prudence of Prudence and the Crow

What are your current top 5 geek loves?
GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF! (We could not be more excited about the new series), Haruki Murakami. (Humid weird summer? Definitely time for a reread!), Cabin in the Woods (Rewatched this the other night and so suddenly in love again, we’d both forgotten how much we enjoyed it), Lumberjanes (Getting into the camp spirit!), and the Jalna novels of Mazo de la Roche. Prudence has never read these before and is obsessed.

If you could have any pen pal, real or fictitious, who would it be and why?
Can’t top Neil Gaiman for penpal concept XD

What are you most looking forward to about IGGPPC Camp? What do you love most about real life camp?
We’re most looking forward to the activities! So much to see, read, learn and make! And the ghost stories 😉 Real life camp? Probably the ghost stories – Prudence can’t bear hearing them, but loves, loves to tell them. Also lighting the fire/keeping the fire going. That’s Prudence’s X-Man skill, and possible past life job.

If your personality were an ice cream sundae, which toppings would be on you?
Prudence would be lemon sorbet. Nice and light but a bit sharp.
The Crow would be salted caramel – complex and unexpected, but delightful throughout.

Marissa Dufault of Whimsy & Fluff

What are your current top 5 geek loves?
Doctor Who (I’ve been marathoning Who while working the last few days, so I’m in super Doctor Who geek mode!), Mass Effect, Marvel (The Avengers/Agents of SHIELD), Firefly, Tangled (I’m not usually a big Disney princess fan, but I cannot get enough of that movie)

If you could have any pen pal, real or fictitious, who would it be and why?
Any pen pal, real or fictitious – Elizabeth Bennett. I’m a big literary geek, and a hopeless romantic at heart, so I love Jane Austen. Plus, letters were how people communicated back then, so she’d be an A+ pen pal!

What are you most looking forward to about IGGPPC Camp? What do you love most about real life camp?
The crafts! I love to make things! I always went to the same camp every summer, so my favorite thing about camp was getting to be with all my camp friends that I hadn’t seen since the previous summer.

If your personality were an ice cream sundae, which toppings would be on you?
Ice cream sundae topping – I would definitely be whipped cream. I mean, talk about whimsy and fluff!

What are you most looking forward to about IGGPPC Camp? What do you love most about real life camp?
I’m looking forward to the Craft Club Challenges and the Jane Austen Letter Writing Challenge! The thing I loved most about real camp life was pickle sno-cones and paddle boats.

Totally looking forward to the biology of zombies, which sounds informative, practical and thoroughly enjoyable – minus the probable sense of impending doom of course. 🙂

If your personality were an ice cream sundae, which toppings would be on you?
Chocolate. Because it’s chocolate 🙂 There would also probably be a jaffa cake or two.

Julie Richards of Tooth & Claw Hatchery

What are your current top 5 geek loves?
My top 5 geek loves are Dragons, Harry Potter, Reading/Writing Scifi and Fantasy, SuperWhoLock, and Renaissance Faires!!

If you could have any pen pal, real or fictitious, who would it be and why?
Without a doubt, JK Rowling. I just have looked up to her as a writer since I was in fourth grade and the books were first being released. I was always inspired by her and I love the UK so that kills two birds with one stone! I can learn all I want from her 🙂

What are you most looking forward to about IGGPPC Camp? What do you love most about real life camp?
I am excited for the business learning aspects of camp. It’s something I don’t have access to in my real life right now so it will give me a good chance to expand and grow my business! In real life my favorite part about camp is simply being outside in nature. I love camping in general and you get a good dose of that at camps.

If your personality were an ice cream sundae, which toppings would be on you?
Oooooooooh hot fudge, whipped cream, cherries (lots of them) and nuts. I’m an old fashioned sundae girl.
