I've got a fairly busy/fun weekend ahead of me: helping a friend with a garage sale (that I'm totally excited about- I'll bring my camera to photograph strangers), tickets so Steven Wright(!) tomorrow night, hopefully some hot eggs-on-bacon action for Sunday brunch, and misc. projects around the house.
So, as a quickie post, I'll show you some of the lovely love that I have had the pleasure of having my supermodel mailman shove into my mail-hole in the past few weeks. Sure, he's quick, shoves it in without so much as a hello, and he leaves immediately after, but I can always say that my mailman leaves me satisfied. And by "satisfied" I mean "leaves me lots of cool loot".
First up- CHEESE!!
My Seattle boy, John, a fellow member of the 12-step program for curdified dairy products, sent me some cheese, glorious cheese for my bee-day. This is the second time I have had the pleasure of coming home from work and seeing that the cheese fairy had arrived. Aged (and SUPER good) Scottish (not to be confused with Irish) cheddar, smooshy & delicious goat, and three samples- an amazing cheddar, Morbier (one of my all-time favorites) and stilton that I haven't tried yet.
My Nevada pal, T.J. sent me another big box of fun a while back, full of all sorts of goodness that made me so very happy. He also sent me my prize in the first annual "Ren & Stimpy obscure quotes" contest. I believe I was the only entrant, but I still felt proud that my "cling tenatiously to my buttocks" quote didn't go unnoticed. My prize? A super-awesome Ren & Stimpy watch that my students were very jealous of when I wore it to work:
The other WM in my life, the ebony to my ivory, the Chuck D. to my Flavor Flav, the flourescent orange cheese to my tortilla chips, sent me a giant box of happiness full of toys, monkeys, and band-aids for when I handle cutlery whilst drunkety drunk drunk.
The bacon floss left my mouth porkiliciously fresh and smoky...mmmm!!
The "bling" band-aids brought out my inner gangsta rapper- "MC Mixmaster Twatardo":
She remembered that I prefer my eyewear to be cutting edge, modern, and always keeping up with the latest in "grandma chic", but thought that in my old age I might need a pair that's a bit...bigger:
Hopefully someday the doctors can help me with my condition- the highly contagious "bipolar lazy eye":
A (long) while back, the artist currently known as Evil Genius sent me an envelope full of all sorts of stuff, including chocolate, a CD, fun DC memorabilia, and a lock of his hair:
Little does he know that I'm using it for my voodoo spells...
He also sent me an Obama magnet, and I thought I should show him that it's on my fridge- Elvis, Wonder Woman and the Pope are keeping him company.
I know I owe a few other thank-yous to a few other folks- I just want to properly document them, so give me a day or two. Hell, I've been an ungrateful beyotch this long, what's a little longer?
Go out and do something fun this weekend, my banana-flavored wads of used dental floss.
