I heard a really cute joke last week on Leahey and Leahey Live that I forgot to tell.

What did the rice say to the spam?

Let’s get nori.

LOL!! OMG, I think that joke is so cute. I guess you’d have to either be from Hawaii or love spam musubis to get it, but I find it hilarious!

My weekend was okay, nothing much happened, but it wasn’t completely boring either. I got a good amount of moat carps turned in (92!) which put me at around 3,400 for my Lu Shang’s Fishing Rod in game. Girl’s Day is coming up soon and so I have to think about what to do for that bento. I think a pretty bento for Baby Girl is in order! I’ll definitely have to do the pink sakura tamago again!


I bought a new kind of salad I from Costco on Saturday which was a shrimp salad with tomatoes in it. All it really has is shrimp with celery and mayo so it didn’t have much taste so I ate a lot of it with cocktail sauce. It was a $13 salad and contained massive amounts of shrimp. I ate this for two days straight and then used some for this Ebi Curry Noodle pack that I had forgotten I still had in the freezer. I washed the mayo off to fry it for this noodle dish though. I fried some asparagus so that I have more veggies and don’t waste the pack that I bought.


This is the box I used today. It was a gift to Baby Girl from her teacher at school. Which reminds me, still no Hello Kitty Online access!! I got some e-mail saying I have to make a video explaining why I should get into beta. I made one, then went back to check the tutorial on how to add tags, and the tutorial opened in the tab I created the video in, erasing it. MAN I was pissed!! I still haven’t made another one yet…


I’ve got a big round Pooh tupperware full of fruit to go with today’s lunch. Baby Girl nagged her way into me buying a tub of tropical fruit, so I’ve got watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapple in here to help us not waste it all. I also bought strawberries and raspberries again. I still have like 10 kiwis left to eat too, gah!! And danjou pears… and apples… and oranges… and blueberries… When it rains it pours!

I went to cut my hair on Saturday and was pretty bored so decided to get some highlights. I’ve never colored my hair before and am pretty happy with the way it looks. Mebbe next time I’ll dye my hair dark red or something. Next week marks 6 weeks with my piercings, so I can go out and buy earrings this week!! 😀

My bridesmaid dress came in and it’s a size 12… I have to exchange it for 6 or 8. How fun is that?!? 😀 A year ago I’d have fit in that dress!!

I think this is my worst bento so far. It’s terribly underwhelming but all I had the time for this morning. On Sunday I wanted to eat the turkey wraps from Costco again so this holds the last 3 pieces leftover. I cut them in half to stow them away nicely but it turned out to be a pretty boring display, so I added some flower shaped sweet potato slices to the top. It still didn’t turn out as nice as I wanted it to, but oh well. It’ll taste good anyway! 🙂


On the side I have some slices of watermelon that my mom had bought us at the pumpkin patch. It had tons of seeds so I removed all of them for easy eating while I cut it all up. It’s super sweet!! I included a tiny pink fork to eat them with. I bought these back during my E3 trip this past summer when my cousin took me to Little Tokyo. It’s so nice to finally put them to use! Aren’t they adorable! I have white, green, and pink ones.

I’ve been debating taking my store down for a while since I am having so much stress lately. I’m thinking maybe I could open it back up after Fan Fest when things are much calmer. Right now, I end up taking so freaking long to ship things and I feel terrible about it. I’ll let you all know what I decide. >.<

I’ve got a hilarious kid story to share today. My son does not say “grandma” yet and this drives my MIL nuts, so she’s constantly pointing to herself and saying, “Who am I?” or “Who is this??”. Yesterday we got home and she tells us rather dejectedly that he’s been making this kinda grunting noise to refer to her, like Grt grt! or something. So she demonstrates for us and I about died right there. She was wearing a pink shirt with three piggies on the front. So whenever she pointed at herself she was pointing at the pigs and saying, “Who’s this?” and so he’d grunt like a pig. LOL

I was able to make my lightbox last night and it didn’t come out so good. So much for “couldn’t be easier to use”! I should have known that something labeled so easy was going to have the fine print “except for short dorky Asian girls named Crystal” where I wouldn’t see it. Good thing it only cost me like a dollar to make it! It’s not completely sucky though, as I was able to use it for my pictures this morning. I do like the seamless white background so that I don’t have to wrestle with my dirty white kitchen towels anymore. I blame me not having good lights. These photos were taken after I removed the top side tracing paper and then placed the lightbox under the stove lights.

I’ve really missed bread and since I had a 2 point lunch and an all Core dinner yesterday (steak, salad, onions, zucchini) it seemed ok to finally eat some. Lunch today consists of star shaped turkey sandwiches made with Roman Meal Honey Oat Wheat bread, lettuce, 96% FF turkey, bell pepper, and Laughing Cow Light Swiss used instead of mayonnaise.


The swiss is a pretty soft cheese, so I just mushed it up a little bit and then it spread onto the bread with no problems. I used bell pepper because it’s a brighter red and tomatoes were going to be too messy. Filled in the spaces with some julienned baby carrots and grape tomatoes. I bought a small box of the grape tomatoes at Foodland. They were pretty expensive at $3.99 for the box, but at least I can take comfort in the fact that I won’t be letting 100+ tomatoes rot in my fridge. Plus, these particular grape tomatoes are super sweet!


My sister-in-law gave us a pack of pre-cut fruits including honeydew melon, watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapple so I sliced them up and put them into my fruit layer then added two strawberry flowers. Now that I look at the picture I’m sad that I didn’t notice that my strawberry flowers don’t have their seeds aligned. 😦


I may be tired of lomi salmon, but I’m still not tired of Kim Chee Crab & Avocado Salad!! This stuff really is SO good and so I couldn’t resist packing another one today. Mr. Pikko keeps raiding the tub of crab and saying “ohhh so good!” so I have to use it if I want to eat any! ^_^

Bento challenge this week is Sci Fi TV and though I’m dying to do some kind of Battlestar Galactica bento, I have no fracking clue what to make…
