Friday, in honor of the birthday of Dr. Seuss, Princess Nagger’s school had the kids dress up as their favorite book character. While everyone else opted for The Cat In The Hat mode (as evidenced by the sea of red and white striped hats filling the windows of the bus), Princess Nagger decided to think outside the box. Or in this case, outside the hat:
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Princess Nagger dressed up as Scourge from her newest favorite book series Warrior Cats. I was lucky I found a black cat costume on eBay (and it has a tail in the back which I totally forgot to have her show off), and found the cool cat mask (with sound) on Amazon. Of course the snout and inside the ears were white, so I had to paint them black (per Princess Nagger’s orders, since Scourge is black all over except one white paw).
Speaking of the one white paw, pretend you’re looking in a mirror and that it’s her right paw that’s white instead of her left paw. She left the wrong cat paw glove on the counter so when I painted it, I didn’t notice it was the wrong paw. She was a bit perturbed that I got it wrong, and volunteered me to paint over the white paint with black, and paint the other one white (close to bedtime the night before). I told her to do it. She didn’t.
Have you heard of Diamond Candles? I discovered them just before Christmas and bought myself one for my birthday. Princess Nagger has laid claim on the diamond ring she’s
impatiently waiting to access (we’re not diggers – we’ll let the candle burn down until it frees the ring). She’s hoping she scores a $5000 ring, though the odds of that are very slim, but she can dream, right? She actually doesn’t care what the value is, because it’s a real diamond – that’s what counts.
Since I promised she could have the first ring, I decided the other day I needed to get another candle so I could I could be
impatiently waiting for the ring reveal, too. If you’ve ever wanted to get one, now’s your chance with $5 off just because I ordered one. Just use this link. This isn’t sponsored, just so you know. I just think they’re cool soy candles and smell really good.
I found this online the other day and had to get it:
Yes, it’s Wine-Opoly – just like Monopoly, only better. Here’s the description:
Pop the cork off any gathering with WINEOPOLY. Players buy favorite wines, collect bunch of grapes and trade them in for decanters. Sounds easy enough but add import taxes and serving faux pas and it becomes a little more difficult and a lot more fun. Learn while you play. Each deed back contains wine descriptors and fun facts about each wine. It’s all fun and games until you’re sent to the wine cellar to age and then you’re out of the game for three turns. So choose your token (wine bottle, cork, wine glass, cheese, grapes, or a carafe) and advance to cheers.
Doesn’t that sound like fun? Who wants to come over to play and drink wine?
Oh, and here’s something else I picked up I know Michele would appreciate (because she’s a hot librarian who loves chocolate and wine):
It’s chocolate made especially to eat whilst drinking wine. No lie. It comes in a container that looks like a book, see the spine and wax seal?
It has four different types of chocolate, and even has the wine pairings that are recommended for each one. Princess Nagger wanted me to break it open immediately upon arrival since she was craving chocolate, but I’m saving it for a special occasion. Like a Wine-Opoly Wine Tasting and Chocolate party. Could happen.
That’s about it for this week – feel free to link up and hop around to all the other awesome randomizers – they’re all so entertaining. If you’re visiting from Talk To Us Tuesday, feel free to link up, too – the more the merrier. Rebel On!
We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (which is closing in on a full year of hiatus, so I’m thinking she might not be back and I’ll just have to wear the Random Crown permanently and make a new badge), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
Once again I’m hopping aboard this fun friendly train – if you’re traveling on the train, be sure to leave your link so I can follow you back!
And I’m joining up with the Tuesday Friend and Follow – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – as of Thursday, GFC will be defunct on my blog since the cads at Goggle are boycotting non-Blogger blogs.
.Note: None of this post – in whole or in part – was sponsored in any way. I just got really excited about some cool things I picked up, paid for with my own money with no compensation. No requests for any shameless plugs of any kind were requested. Of course I’m always happy to entertain future offers for similar items, or you know, things on my Bucket List like touring the Wine Country in Italy. I’m just sayin’. .
