Random Photo Day!
It's my day off, it's raining and I've got a lingering headache (yes I've taken something, thank you for asking... but feel free to bring more Tequilla as I seem to have taken all the 'doses' of that for this thing... kidding! I jest! I do that a lot! There's nary a drop of hard liquor in Casa De Karmacially Challenged. Surprising since the Tiny Terrorists do reside here...) so *RING!* *RING!* Please pick up the white courtesy phone, because I'm phoning it in today!
Part Of My Problem...
I've got MAD COW DISEASE! And K gave it to me! But isn't it just the cutiest little microbe you've ever seen?
See, that's the answer... Me = Mad Cow.
Take a look:
Real Mad Cow (okay maybe not actually MAD but probably a little indignant about having her photo taken).
And of course ME (not that I'm MAD in this photo, just having a jell-o shot). As you can see if not for the flower in my hair, we'd be nearly identical.
My Eggs Are Better Than Yours
How cool is that? Let me answer! WAY COOL! Those are hard boiled eggs pressed into shapes by ever soo cool ice cream sandwich molds. See below:
K got these for my birthday - without even knowing I had been lusting after them for a few months, just so I could make fun shaped boiled eggs in them.
The offspring were not nearly as impressed with the eggs as I am, but who the hell cares? I like them! So who wants to have some boiled eggs? Piggie, cow or star? (I dyed the eggs with some food coloring for dramatic effect)
And by mentioning my ever sooo cool birthday gift, that brings me to another subject (random thought segway - lucky you!).
K's History Of Bad Pressies!
K has a long history of giving me just really not so great pressies. Luckily I'm not a person who has to have lots of presents, so truly I've always appreciated the earnest efforts he's made - and the good laughs many of his presents have given me.
Check out one of the first things K gave me when we first started dating:
I'm not entirely certain WHY he thought a 20 year old woman would LOVE this hideous thing, but he did for some reason. And I've kept it for the past 16 years because it amuses the hell out of me that he would pay money for that - or better yet that when he saw THAT he thought of ME!!!! WTF?!?!?!?!?!
Granted, not all of the presents over the year have blown as much as that one, interspersed among the bizarre crap have been some true gems - Mad Cow Disease and my adorable tribble! Other times I've told him EXACTLY what to get for me to ensure it's what I want. But honestly that takes the fun out of it and as the years have passed it's more of an adventure to see what he comes up with by himself. Years of late it's been most interesting as there have been a few gay porn calendars, a pink butt plug and lube (still unused), dice and other gaming supplies, super hero dolls, Barbies (even a lesbian Barbie) and DVD's. Some hits, some misses, some WTF were you thinking? But I digress... I really just wanted to post that photo of that awful gnome. ;) Now doesn't that make you feel better about your day?
