Wondrous Things from The Land Down Under

Today was a gloomy day. A gray and cold and wet day. The kind of day where even going out to get the mail takes energy but I’m a mail junkie so out I went. When I opened the box what, to my great surprise should I find but this:

It was a package from Down Under bearing a very formidable ID RECORDED sticker.

Whoa! I thought. Do I have a drug dealer I didn’t know about? But then I remembered that Katy the Greaty had said she was going to send me something and squealing with delight I fairly skipped back into the house to see what wondrous thing was tucked into the unassuming but duly noted package (they’ve got your number, girl!)

Fingers trembling with anticipation, I tore open the package to discover this:

(click for a bigger view. Go on! It’s totally worth it!)

I got very verklempt and had to actively engage in full restraint to keep from wrapping my body in that tape and heading for the nicest restaurant in town with my sushi hat on me ‘ead (that’s Aussie for ‘on my head’) and a sushi tape dress on me bod.

That’s DPR and me in our sushi hats

Refrain I did, though because I think that sushi tape is destined for better things.

Katy- you are just the bestest! You’ve made my holiday season complete.

    How sweet of her! I love getting packages.

    I did go to the FoMo group in Danville last night! It has been a long time, but I had a great time. I am going to start going regularly, so I will look for you next week!

    The Chinese Supermarket I mentioned is at Alcosta and Village Parkway in San Ramon- former Ralph’s. There’s also a new 99 Ranch Market in Dublin next to Longs (Amador Valley Blvd/Regional Street) but I haven’t been there yet.
