Happy Pantry: Almost Alliterative Alphabet Book, letter D

Nothing like a donut dreaming of how tasty it is.  I'd say it was self centered, but donuts don't have centers...they're empty inside...

Star Wars post

Doctor Who says, "Timey Whimey" and it's annoying.  But thinking about that, the words, "Bookie Wookie" popped into my head, so I had to draw it.

Bookie Wookie.  Enjoy.

Happy Pantry: Almost Alliterative Alphabet Book, Letter B

 We had a couple of options for our alliterative alphabet book when it came to the letter B.  The first was my favorite, until I put glasses on the strawberry, now I like Brainy Berry...

Happy Pantry - Happy Friday!

It's funny - no matter how many come to pass, it's always a happy friday when you're staring in the face of a couple of days off.

And then there's the three day weekend...and Friday at 6 can't come soon enough - because then it's so hard to imagine having to go back to work seeing as how it's can't see Tuesday when you're walking out of the office door on Friday.

Every once in a while - and this doesn't always happen - there's a big stretch between ending work for the week and coming back - like the Christmas holiday.  Suddenly you have a week...sometimes two weeks...those Fridays might just be the best Fridays.

Oh - and I like fries.  Any day I'm eating fries (extra crispy, please!) is a happy day.

A tiny look at what I'm working on right now...

I'm working on a larger piece, but it's taking a while, so I thought I'd post a little snippet because I liked how it's going so far...
What could that be in reference to?  I wonder...

Happy Pantry: Almost Alliterative Alphabet Book, letter A

The only thing worse than finding a worm in your apple is finding the remains of half of one after you've bitten into it...

But they do have fun together...

Happy (Pantry) Easter!

We're up early today to go to Wondercon, so we definitely need our coffee...with bunny ears and a tail.

Go get your eggs!  It's Easter!  It's all marshmallow rabbits and chocolates for breakfast today!

Easter comes to the Happy Pantry

 Easter is the one day where everyone gets together to mess with eggs.

 Easter is also the one day a year when everyone decides that hard boiled eggs are tasty and eat them by the mouthful.  It's gross.  The only eggs one should consume should be laid by bunnies and filled with chocolate...or weird gooey sugary Cadbury goodness.

And Easter is also the one time a year when everyone feels the need to hide eggs all over the yard so kids can go nuts fighting over hard boiled eggs.  They're not even candy - they're the worst way to make an egg (especially if you're like me and your mom would dice them into steamed spinach and make you eat a heaping pile for was a smell that permeated the house and a taste that tested your gag reflex).

I will say, it is fun to watch all the little weirdos running to and fro looking for eggs to put in the basket.  We grew up having our little Easter egg hunt, and there would always be one special plastic egg filled with cash.  That was the one we were really on the hunt for.

Happy Pantry: April Fools!

Nothing is worse than April Fools.  Everyone tries to deliver some news today and it's obviously ridiculous or fake.  Everyone tries a prank and it never seems to work out right - sometimes it's funny, but someone always gets mad...even though we all know what day it is.

Almost a decade ago I tried to tell everyone that Tracey had broken up with me.  It was a really lazy effort on my part.  I just sent out an e-mail to everyone I could think of.  For some reason people believed me and I kept getting condolences.  When I came clean that it was the lamest joke I've ever attempted, my brother didn't talk to me for a month.  But that might have been because of how lame the prank was and he was ashamed...

You know what would be a good prank?  Bugs in food.  It's the worst thing, and best of all, it's the bug that's doing the pranking.  Win win!  And everyone gets to laugh about it.  Except for the person who bit into the food and discovered a new friend wiggling out.

There's a worm in your apple....April Fools!

And I know, worms aren't bugs.  But they might as well be.  Wait - aren't they?  Ah nuts.  Ignore this paragraph.

So if you're a pranker and toss a bucket of water on a co-worker or saran wrap the toilet...or if you opt out of any lame bits of mirth...just remember to be careful today.  There's a lot of terribleness going around...just grin and bear it for a few more hours...and be thankful it's only once a year.
