Final Trip to Daiso or “I warm your ankle up by whole my body.”

All of my stuff in bags!

All of my stuff in bags!

Daiso in Bellis Fair closed permanently on Saturday last weekend, and it was quite the staggering loss for Aaron and I. So we coped with it the best way we could; spending three hours wandering around the store, picking up useful and not so useful items. Not to mention reading all of the wonderful Engrish stamped on nearly all of their products. I walked away with two ginormous bags full of stuff. After that we stopped off at  Target so I could buy a rice cooker. And this is what is looks like laid out on my floor. My apartment is slowly becoming an emporium of wonderful things. Once I’ve organized everything I’ll have to post a walkthough (I swear, it’s going to happen).

All of my stuff on the floor!

roll14-146Anyhoo, back to my glorious purchases. I took pictures of the things I’m super excited for. Namely, my super awesome can’t live without potato and onion bag! I mean come on, who needs ugly potatoes sitting out open in their  plastic bag, or better yet rotting away in some cabinet (trust me on this you do NOT want the latter to happen).  I can’t tell you how many potatoes have grown into a high school science fair lesson in biology and chemistry in my 2.5 years of being on my own. So I found that this bag was a must and I quickly bought it. Now all I need is some potatoes…or onions.

roll14-148Next up. Cute! Sponge! I bought one for my sister too. I also bought a sponge holder, because I need cute household products in order for me to have the slightest drive to keep my apartment orderly. Seriously, if you came in my apartment you wouldn’t know if a woman or man lived there besides alloftheunderwearlayingaroundonthefloor, what were we talking about? Right. roll14-149Cat towels. Got one right the stove. I haven’t decided if it’s just going to be decorative or for actual cleaning, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get a major spill, which should be, like, this week sometime.

I also bought three pairs of chopsitcks, one set  was a bright yellow like sunshine and came in a carrying case. They are my favorite and will be going with me everywhere I go.

And this. Oh you’ll get to know all about this real soon.

Don’t Tell Me This Shit Ain’t Sexy

Black Monolith of Awesome

So I’m in Wisconsin with my parents (didn’t think the post would start out like that, huh?) and I forgot my mom said that we’d be excited about some new additions to the kitchen. Well when we walked through the door my sister dropped her bags and ran for…the refrigerator. Yep. My Mom and dad got a brand new Samsung black refrigerator, and a new stove. We took a tour of the new fridge and man, it’s sweet. I don’t know if this is pervasive with other females, but I’m not particularly domesticated, however I love refrigerators and washers and dryers. It’s like embedded in my very being.

Anyhoo, it looks like I haven’t really stopped doing what I was doing my regular schedule at home. I got up about a half-hour ago went to facebook, twitter, my blog then I’m going to hit up my Google reader and then do some work, maybe have a meeting. Sounds like I never left home, huh?

Well except my mom is making me muffins. : )

Sushi Sushi Sushi

I could live comfortably if I ate it every week. And after Christmas I’m hoping for that opportunity. I saw this wonderful piece of gadgetry and just knew somehow it needed to be mine.

Oh the possibilities!

Pickles, salmon, bacon!!!!, mushrooms, onions, celery, tuna, fruit, etc (not all together of course). I want one. For Christmas. Make it happen.

I’ll fix you sushi! : )
