This relationship has been two years in the making. The octopus came home with me (and the stickers from Meg Lyman) in 2012. The shark, Bruce, joined our happy household two weeks ago. I just rediscovered the stickers today.
Apparently, fate likes long-term games. I can relate.
I’m a sucker for plushies, so I’m not surprised that when I walked into a science-themed store, I came away with a toy shark. What I do find surprising is how long I’ve taken to get said shark.
Look at those teeth!
Once I get home, I’m introducing Bruce to Octavious.
According to the ‘best before’ date, this pie should be eaten by the 27 of June 2014.
Adam and I have not been idle in regards to this; we have eaten half of the $12 pie since last Sunday.

I’m hoping that this will last at least until Saturday. This is like, perfect weekend ridiculousness.

Mom had suggested it a while ago, but without any Blockbusters around and a lack of easy-to-borrow DVDs about, I never got into it. Well. Here I am.
BTW, SPN season 1 and 2 and 3 are sitting on the shelf with the first two seasons of GoT. I am such a bad girl.
Speaking of bad–I’ve heard about Hook. Really, looking forward to seeing him on-screen!
I just got an email from DirectBuy saying my membership fee was due. Which I expected.
What is tempting me to hit my head against the desk though, is that my yearly “fee” is the same number as my membership number. Which is seven digits long.
Come on, DB. This is just silly.
Proofread your friggin mail merges already.
