Surprise Goodies Arrive!

Such excitement! My package arrived today from my Secret Pal!

I loooove the colorway of this yarn. I don't think the picture can capture how gorgeous it is. I'm going to have a lot of fun deciding what this yarn wants to be.

And, as if that weren't enough, my Secret Pal also noticed that I like foreign candy and she included a candybar from Iceland! I've never had Icelandic candy before, and I notice that the wrapper coordinates with the yarn. Unfortunately, it was decidedly non-Icelandic outside when the UPS guy delivered my package--it was 108 degrees, as a matter of fact--so I've had to put my candy in the fridge until it returns to a less liquid state. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Thank you so much, Secret Pal!!!


On a completely different note, I'm going to gloat. Too bad, North Korea! So sad, Canada! Nice try, Zimbabwe! But we have the most embarrassing head of state on the planet. Yeah! USA rules!

I'm glad you liked your package! The chocolate is delicious. I'm sorry it was so liquified!

Well, perhaps your head of state is embarrassing, but our moron leader is now making a career out of SUCKING up to your president, AND Gordon and I have decided that W is actually less ugly AND more likeable than Stephen Harper, which is really saying something.

I can't tell you how much we hate our Prime MInister...

Oh yeah, and your chocolate looks great!! I'm sure it will solidify nicely for later snacking. Yarn is beautiful too.
