Iced Fish Cake!

I don't like to admit that I spend time on Neopets. Despite some adults playing it, it really does come off as a (very grammatically challenged) site for kids. But for those times I need to kill time at work, it fills the bill. But my real enjoyment on the site? Finding wacky items with creative descriptions.

Examples:

Iced Fish Cake: A large fish cake coated in extra sweet strawberry icing. Yum?

Hot Worm Hot Dog: A thick, juicy worm wrapped between a hot dog bun, smothered in tomato sauce.

- Bacon and Eggs Ice Cream


And one of my new favorites:

Dung Cream Sandwich: Well I guess you have to do something with all the dung!

Well, I guess you do. :P

In other news: So tire. So very very tired. Got >5 hours of sleep for the second night in a row, and for the second night the few hours I got were broken and filled with nightmares. Silly spirit, getting all renewed by my vacation! You need to re-accept how much work sucks! Just get over that and we'll get through our 9 hours a day here and that'll be that!

I'm strongly suspecting that our company is going to shut down or go bankrupt or something like that. All of our top people keep leaving. They all give the same reasons (They want the challenge of joining a start-up! They're all still fully confident in [our company]!), but they're all jumping ship. Maybe we're not going to shut down. Maybe it's just that we've only gotten ONE RAISE in FIVE YEARS and the top people got their salaries cut on top of that. Maybe it's that soon they're going to cut all of our salaries further and make us earn that back (if we can). Who knows! (And yes, yes, I should have long since quit as well, but finding a new job would be annoying. Perhaps even more annoying than staying here.)

I grabbed an egg sandwich for breakfast this morning, and boy was it good! Mmmm. I've not had one in like 3-4 weeks, and it was just so totally yummy. It's nice to be really full and really satisfied! Yummy egg protein, perhaps I should make you at home sometime. If only eggs weren't icky...

And on the subject of eggs (and the ickiness at eating them), we have a bird's nest in our car port! (I guess that's what you call a garage with no walls, right?) The nest is really low and so interesting to see. The two birds are such good parents! I think the chicks have hatched, because sometimes I hear the cutest little peepings.

See my new icon? The wonderful (and violent!) loneguardian made it for me! Yay! I'll try to use it on all of my FFXI postings, which will make it easier for those uninterested to skip them.
