Ah, but you can use those spoons to dig your way into Foxfur's heart.
He's quite the Hello Kitty fan.
If you're lucky, someone will dig up the picture.

Young furling, you must journey to the place is known as "Yogurtland," mythical country of sweet, frozen goodness.

Or if that's too far I could ship you a spoon in time for TTITD. I reserve the right to address the package as "To: Wicket," however. :D

EDIT: My thing for today is organization! Removing more packaging, putting small stuff in bags and other containers.

Foxfur, I am bringing you a bag of authentic Japanese issue Hello Kitty candy suckers. I have "several" unopened bags, maybe 100 in each bag. They are very good, but the true Hello Kitty aficionados would never think of actually un-wrapping one and eating it. You will have a full bag of them to do with as you wish....

I bought 12 pairs of socks, some gloves, and tried to tye-dye a couple table clothes just to realize I didn't pay attention to what they were made of. The dye didn't stick but I learned things and will gather more supplies to try again. I also picked up some awesome fabric on sale and I am hoping to get a suit made out of it. 8)

Got me a new playa hat and a ruck sack for when I work volunteer hours. Also, finally found last year's packing list. Still no black leather mini skirt. If I were a black mini where would I be?
