N is For & My Dinner Last Night
I realized I had no where to put my cool stitchmarkers I've recently acquired from my bestest CASPs (Sherry and my Dear Knitting Pig). When I was in the shower (I come up with my best ideas in the shower) I remembered that I had this tin pen box that The Mad Scientist had brought home a few years ago from his annual International Toxicology Festival. It's a weeklong conference they hold every year and they have what The Mad Scientist has dubbed "Swag Day." On Swag Day, all of the pharmaceutical and research companies hand out company swag. Pens, totebags, laser pointers, foam Viagra shaped stress balls, etc. One year he came home with a stuffed pig wearing a company t-shirt. Ends up that company does a majority of their research using pigs as test subjects. Chunky loves that little pig. If only he knew!
Anyway, back to N! I took some scrapbookpaper I had lying around, glued it to the pen box and shellacked the hell out of it. I also did the same thing to an old seed bead container. Now I have something to put my yarn needles into and toss into my purse. Totally new containers!
I'll also kill the blogstalking bird with this stone and show you what I had for dinner last night:
Mmm. One and a half baked chicken tenders and raw broccoli. What can I say? Chunky hates cooked broccoli. He'll only eat it raw. Which is fine, I think it contains more vitamins and nutrients uncooked anyway. With The Mad Scientist gone and temperatures still in the 100s, I'm a pretty uninspired summer cook.
Finally I leave you with an obligatory Chunky picture. I was on the phone tonight with The Mad Scientist and Chunky came out of his bedroom wearing this ensemble:
It's Tex Coolshades Ramfan Dark Invader! (He calls Darth Vader "Dark Invader") What a dork! But I love him, so I guess I'll keep him. Hee hee!
