So Far Around The Bend

There’s a lot going on this weekend, as always, but the main event? The Saintly City Cat Show! (AKA the crazy cat lady/cat man show.) Last year was our inaugural visit, accompanied by two dear friends who are seasoned veterans. But this year we’re expanding our entourage, and having more like-minded folk over for brunch beforehand. Then together we will field trip it on to the crowning of cat royalty! But the people watching is just as good as the cat watching at these things. I do hope we see the woman with the forearm tattoos of her dead cats. But I hate to think she might have them taxidermied at home. Eep.

Five more helpings of the good and the weird:

Now for this week in cupcakes, at Triple Rock and Mitrebox. And Cake Eater will be representing at the Modern Radio anniversary thingie, Saturday, January 23rd at the Cedar Cultural Center. But I’ve also been invited to an old friend’s vampire+laser tag themed birthday party for the same exact timeframe! Such a dilemma.

    Mr Bento is the best! And my co-worker ordered one for himself, instead of the twee girlypop style panda bento or the more manly construction worker style Stanley lunchbox. Mr Bento is somewhere in between. But Ms Bento looked kinda lame (all pastel-y with smaller containers).

    I’ve always wanted to send Wesley to school with bento lunches, but I get overwhelmed at trying to think of a variety of fun things to pack him. :/ I need to start researching more! Interestingly enough, I was just looking at bento boxes yesterday and thought that panda one would be fun to get him!

    That “ningen” is super creepy.

    Ningen = creepy, but kinda awesome. And the various bento photo groups on flickr really are a great source of inspiration for lunch-packing. Just the other day I was looking at some and was like “oh, duh, I haven’t had kiwi in forever!” So tomorrow’s bento will feature kiwi, among other things. Too bad my Parker is such a picky eater. His lunches are pretty basic. PB&J on whole wheat, some sort of fresh and/or dried fruit, some sort of snack-y home-baked item or store bought pretzels or something, and an enriched rice milk box. But hey, he likes it.
