To the Victor Go the Spoils!

So I recently took top honors in Yorkie's famous Caption Contest. It came down to a Caption-Off between me and my beloved Poops. If you haven't seen it, you really owe it to yourself to check it out. Here are the links:

Contest The Grand Finale


Anyhoo, my prize was THE BOX. If you're not familiar with her work, Yorkie has the most deliciously wicked sense of humor.

So I captured the opening of the parcel in photos:

Whatever could it be????




Tito was pissed that it wasn't for him, so I asked him to model the contents. Including...



Aunty's Spotted Dick. I should warn you that I do plan to take photos of myself eating Aunty's Spotted Dick, so plan accordingly.



The kids and I have munching on Nobby's Nuts all afternoon. Dontcha love Tito's cherubic smile with the evil glimmer in the eye? He gets that from me.



These are Parma Violets. I wasn't sure whether to bite them or suck them, but they kinda taste like soap.


And finally -


Awesome, awesome yarn! It's Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in the Black Purl colorway I'm so fond of. I'll have to make something fabulous with it. Thank you, Yorkie!!!


In other news, we're still unpacking and cleaning out the old place, but we should be done by Monday if we bust ass this weekend. I still haven't told you about Moving Day with FIL, MIL and Reverend Aldi, but fear not, I will.

It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood!

Y'know, it was actually easy putting together that parcel. I just had to let down my Raunchy Filters, and the items just sorta hopped in the box themselves.

Heinz used to have tins of Spotted Dick that you could pretty much put on your shelf and forget about, but I haven't seen them lately. So I hope you eat your Dick soon, as it might go off.

Now THERE'S a statement you don't hear everyday, but dangit, PK, with you I just can't hold myself back.

Hmmm, parma violets. I used to love them when I was a nipper. Can't stand them nowadays, taste like soap.
Don't forget the custard for your dick, they go together excellently.

The yarn is gorgeous, and the food seems to something that will be fun to talk about as you are eating :) Thanks for popping by my blog with a comment about pattern-learning -- glad it's not just me!
