Contest continued

Thanks to everyone who has commented and also wished me a happy birthday. It was a tiring week and the house fixing continued today. Unfortunately, it looks like I have to wait for one more thing to get done before life goes back to normal. But boy, you never know how much crap you have until you try to pack it all away. I don't think I had a free moment that wasn't filled with boxing, wrapping, folding, cleaning, taping, moving or dusting. I'm exhausted.

So I have decided to continue my contest because I'm still waiting for that one funny comment that makes me snort diet coke out my nose. Some have gotten close, but not quite spaghetti noodle dangling out the nostril funny...yet. In an effort to increase the funny, I'm expanding ideas of what can go in my goodie box, like:


These cookies have a chestnut filling that is quite sweet and good. The outside is soft and sort of like a pancake. I can't always find them at the store, but if they are there, I'll add them cause they are yummy.


Pickled garlic. Oh yeah, delish. Course you gotta like garlic. Whatever pickling process they use actually mellows out the intensity of the garlic. Plus they don't smell like raw garlic. They don't smell like roses either, but they aren't nearly as bad as eating a lot of dishes with lots of garlic in them.

This was my favorite thing when I was younger and is my kids favorite also. It's Yakult - a yogurt drink that is hard to describe but delicious to drink. Usually you freeze it and then you let it thaw out so you can drink it. But I never could wait and I'd be gnawing all over the plastic trying to get the sweet icy drink out into my mouth. But when it is icy cold and ready to drink, it is so good!

So come on people! Be adventurous! Try for the goodie box! Let's get some more entries, shall we? The challenge is to make me laugh so hard I'd snort a spaghetti noodle through my nose (if I were eating spaghetti). Who can do it? Who will reign supreme?

Yakult - the drink with a million lactobacillus casei shirota - one swallow and you'll never be alone again!

Happy Birthday, Ello! If I were closer I'd help you pack. There's something terribly satisfying about putting stuff in a box. Heck, I love boxes.

I've not had the Yakult in ages. We love it. With summer just around the corner (yeah, I'm optimistic even in the rain) I need to stock up on these.

Coming in late as I have, I don't think I can enter the contest. But I feel for you packing everything up. It'll do you in.

Ello, Noodle Nose, the Spaghetti Nose-Sucker...

Damn it Ello, now I have a Ripley's Believe It or Not picture in my head...

Yakult?

Oh, we have this crap in the UK.

It's the only product I can think of whose brand name is the same as the sound made when its thrown straight back up.

As for the spaghetti thing, I'd like to make it plain here and now that you're my favourite involuntary cephalopod.
