Ye Shall Receive

turns out, complaining works! after blogging about the tragedy of my stolen spork:

i received not one:

not two:

but THREE new eating instruments!

now i have a variety of tools i can use at work to shovel food into my gullet, and one at home for all the grapefruit i've been eating there:

the system works!

Banana Split

luckily it was just the liner:

still, doesn't make me feel very good, though!

They Call Me Mr. Mango

kenzie is a super sleuth and found this delicious chapstick to chew on:

which gives me a reason to post on my other blog!

it is a momentous day!

Gobble, Gobble

finally! a holiday that's only about eating:

the only bummer is that i was hoping it would snow so that i could roll out my thanksgiving snowstorm name:

maybe next year.... happy thanksgiving!

x Plus y Equals Love

i used to have a spork:

but it wasn't just ANY spork, it was a metal, reusable spork:

and i loved it:

i used it for cereal:

i used it for grapefruit:

i used it for pasta:

and for poking people in the eye:


and now i have to use a spoon:

or a fork:

like a chump. 

*or i misplaced it. but i think we already covered that i don't lose things, so that couldn't be it....

The Grand Erinpest Hostel

so, wes anderson has a new movie coming out:

but i'm not in it! in fact, i'm not even in his new short:


why will not he put me in one of his movies? is it because he just hasn't seen my raw talent yet? you're right. i'll circle back with my demo reel.

iThing Lost

i've actually been really lucky that in all of my travels, i haven't really lost anything.*

so when i got to the airport for an early morning flight recently, imagine my dismay when i realized i'd left my ipad in the hotel:

i knew exactly where, even, but obviously i couldn't go back to there and get it:

i called, they said they would have the housekeeper look out for it, which i'm pretty sure means sell on ebay:

but--miracle of miracles--they mailed it back to me!

and it only cost $45 via ups. expensive toy saved!

*that i know of....

sore throat

i have a sore throat:

i'm probably dying. which is too bad since today is halloween:

maybe the guy attacking my throat will kill me, and i'll come back as a ghost? at least that way i won't get sick from eating too much candy....

Freeze Right There!

c.b. and i may have a palatial estate, but because of some low-hanging cabinetry, we have what is practically a dorm-sized refrigerator:

the fridge part is large enough, but the freezer can't possibly accommodate my hoarding needs:

so i thought we should get a small supplemental freezer to take care of any overflow:

c.b. thought, we may as well get a good-sized freezer, since we're getting something anyway:

and since some of the giant freezers were actually less expensive and much better rated than the good-sized ones, i decided to go all out. now we have a giant freezer:

let the hoarding begin!*

Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes

i don't waste my time matching socks, and luckily, as long as they are about the same thickness and shape, i don't notice the small differences:

but for some reason i'm noticing a very disturbing trend recently:

it doesn't seem to matter what shoes i'm wearing, either:

always on the right foot, which doesn't make sense because ever since my toe surgery, it's been my smaller foot:

 it's an unsolved mystery. the most annoying kind of mystery!
