Born This Way

Remember back in Episode 3 when Ducking Up Broadway made me this awesome J. Pierrepont Duck to give away, and I said it looked like Blaine, and it would be cool if they made Kurt and Blaine ducks?


Well, my amazing husband commissioned Kurt and Blaine ducks for my birthday, and they are spectacular. I’m hoping that Ducking Up Broadway will post some pictures later today, since they’re better at photographing their ducks than I am, but for now, my pic will have to suffice.


Look at them! They’re soulmates!

I just can’t even.

Thank you so much to Lauren and Hannah for their amazing artwork. Klaine-as-ducks will live on my desk at work and they will make me happy every day. Look at Blaine’s eyebrows! And you can’t even see the detail on the Dalton insignia in this picture, but it’s perfect. And the plaid–you can’t appreciate the plaid in this picture, but it’s…I’m running out of adjectives.

Go check them out @bwayducks on Twitter and Instagram!

Episode 3: Just Ducky

Episode 3 is now available, featuring Ducking Up Broadway! I had a lot of fun recording this episode. Lauren and Hannah are hilarious, and I just hope you believe me after I had to cut out all our rambling and gossiping.

Click here to listen.

Best of all, it’s my first giveaway! We’re giving away two ducks, thanks to Lauren and Hannah’s generosity. First is the Darren Criss duck based on his character in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.


To win this duck, follow me on Twitter @elsiepod. I will choose one winner at random on Friday, November 18. Lauren, Hannah and I are not eligible, and neither are members of our immediate families. Only twitter accounts belonging to individuals are eligible to win. Corporate/business accounts are not eligible.

The second duck we are giving away is Alexander Hamilduck, as seen on Javier Munos’s head:


To win Alexander Hamiduck, follow Ducking Up Broadway on Twitter @bwayducks. One winner will be chosen at random on November 18. Lauren, Hannah and I and our immediate families are not eligible to win.

Winners of both ducks will be notified via twitter and on this blog. If the winners do not respond in a reasonable amount of time (as determined by myself with Lauren and Heather) with a shipping address, we reserve the right to randomly select a replacement winner.

Winners will also be announced on my next podcast, to be released on Monday, November 21.
