Fishbowl 'o Fun

Today was long. I'd love to tell you all about it, but that would be blogging about work, which is kinda stupid. Suffice to say: 4 hours, 3 gynecologists, 1 computer application. It wasn't pretty.

Anyway, I got some iced coffee from a local independent and drove the surface streets home with the windows rolled down and listening to Masayoshi Yamazaki. (NOT a pretty boy. More of a Japanese James Taylor.) By the time I got home I had mellowed out and shed the frustrations of the day. And guess what was on my doorstep!


My local Homeland Security officers did a quick evaluation and determined that the package was not for me but, in fact, for them. I begged to differ. They were insistent.


I, the one with the thumbs, was summoned to open "their" package.


"String? Who would send us string?" Mitsy wondered. "No one sent you string. Someone sent ME string, I mean yarn." "No, there's stuff in here for us. Get your string out of the way."


Further inspection proved that there WERE items for the food provider in the box.



"Why are you so sure there should be something for you in the box?" "There IS something for us," Mitsy sniffed. Flexing her nostrils she said, "Stop squeeing and pull that blue stuff out of the box."


"Squee!" said Mitsy. "What? You can't have the roving sweetie. That's for me too." "Nuh uh!" "Yes. You don't get roving." "No, but I get anything with catnip!" "Huh? Catnip?" And sure enough, there were two precious little sparkly fishies with catnip. One for each of my little roomies.


"Mitsy, what do you say?"
"Thank you Secret Pal!"


"Maggie, what do you say?"


They've been a blur ever since.

Thank you so much Secret Pal, for such a wonderful package! I really loved the fishbowl theme, and it was so very sweet of you to include the kitties. The yarn is my favorite color this season, and I'm already thinking of projects for it. And roving too! Squee! It was a wonderful surprise at the end of a stressful day.

Here's Yamazaki-san if anyone is curious:



hi, i miss you. how are you? i hope you didn't have to see 3 gynecologists! email me!


So glad you "arent' spinning" the roving is just cuz you and Shannon will both have spinning wheels - you know she's called already calling Nancy to order one...resistance is futile.

Ooo, what a great package (love your story and photos -- aren't you glad you've got your own Homeland Security officers)!


Great Package... notYamazaki-san's but ya know, the one with the string...

Secret Pal

I'm so glad you liked it. And I loved that your "Homeland Security Officers" had confiscated the package! I'm already hard at work on the next one...
