Your Cart is Empty

Oh man, many little good things happened/were accomplished today, but none inspired me to write a post until the ever magical and most-fun-person-to-eat-with-in-the world, Robyn, made an appearance in my mailbox. Via a box of chocolates. Wait! But not just any chocolates, but the most picture perfect set by Pierre Herme.


And then I turned to my dad, who was clearly confused by my excitement, and declared, “hoooooo, these are so amazing, I’m not going to share them with anyone in world!” He didn’t look like he gave a hoot, so I continued, “but I might share them with you…because, you are cool like that, dad!” And then he looked really confused, so I went back to oohing and ahhing over Pierre Herme’s strategically designed box.

I don’t know even where to begin! With names like Mathilda, Mogador, Cho Chocolat, Ispahan, Azur, Lou, Ouvre-toi, I can barely decipher which type of chocolate is what, but there are hints of pralines, caramel, rose, cirus, and nougatines to come. I think I’ve gone to fairyland. I’m going to taste these bit by bit and do a post on all of them at once, though till then, I’m going to savor the chocolately scent for as long as I can. Thank you SO MUCH Robyn!

And that’s the end of the really delicious chocolate part, but if want to know what I did with the rest of day, read on!

OK. So I woke up late after a post-Christmas pre-New Years potluck party with all my high school friends. We had Zippy’s Chili, poke, Zippy’s Fried Chicken, lots of hummus and pita, garlic-shoyu edamame, CPK pizza, brownies, Ted’s Pumpkin-Hapuia pie and plenty of other good stuff. Ah, how much I miss potlucks!
Well I was still half asleep on the living room couch when I heard the doorbell ring. Our couch is not so strategically placed within feet of our completely see thru door, and when I looked up groggily, I saw…the FEDEX MAN. oh no! How embarrassing! I was still wearing my hello kitty pajamas from 7th grade! so I ran and hid in my sister’s room. The doorbell left unanswered. I’m sure the fexex man understands.

A good half hour later, I bravely opened the door to get the package. I looked at the name. It was addressed to me! Wow, it must have been my lucky day. I dragged in it and ripped it open. And what was inside? A new suitcase from my employer! Neato! Even though I’m not starting work for a good eight more months, gifts already? It’s not quite big enough to check in at the airport, and little bigger than the typical carry on…but it’s the fact that i got a SUITCASE in the mail that makes me happy. As you can see, it doesn’t take much to make me happy.

I also had a very bad cinnamon roll ($2.25) from Great Harvest Bakery. It’s like dry bread sprinkled with brown sugar then rolled up into a pseudo cinnamon roll. Though the frosting, given in a little container on the side, is very nice, smooth, thick with cream cheesy goodness and not too sweet. If only I had a good cinnamon roll to spread it on!

I also got Buddy a new dog tag (after he got lost yesterday). It’s a yellow hexagon that very plainly says, BUDDY, and then my mom’s cell phone number on the next line. We couldn’t put our home address cause we’re going to move soon. Dad suggested putting our PO Box, but I highly doubt anyone would return Buddy to a PO Box.
