And BTW, our teacher in London told us there's no such thing as Czech or Polish accent actually XD, but I guess that's not true.

Really? What did he call your accent then? What did he make of your adorable tendency to pronounce 'w' as 'v'? Grin

He obviously wasn't a Star Trek fan...  Grin

Anyone wants to chime in some new ideas? I too have about a metric ton of used bracelet glow sticks that I don't want to throw away...

I usually paint them with matching permanent markers. There are some brands that are pretty resilient, and don't scratch easily.

Damn it, I got out of class too late to catch the post office open. I'll have to send tomorrow.   Lips sealed

Man, I just spent 3 hours crafting something I thought I'd do in like 30 minutes. Turned out a lot better than I imagined, though, and I will have a serious hard time parting with it  Tongue

Lol I didn't even think of the Swedish Chef! That's it, this weekend I'm getting my apron on and going "bork bork bork" all over my kitchen. I promise there will be pictures! (of the food)

Actually, what I thought of first was of Chef, from South Park, because one of the recipes is for chocolate balls. I spent quite a while after that humming the chocolate salty balls song afterwards  Roll Eyes

I have received, huzzah! And it looks like I'll be making the official pictorial inauguration, so take a deep breath and put on your solemn faces as I cut the red ribbon on the gallery.


Ok, on with the show!

hollywood suicide was a great partner, she sent me some really cool goodies! Her language for me was Swedish.

First up, some Swedish recipes that seem amazing:

hollywood suicide wrote the ingredients in Swedish and the instructions in English and included a list with the translations. I can't wait for the weekend, I want to try and make those, they look so good!

Next up, a pair of Richard Scarry's children picture books (please excuse the glare):

I love kid's picture books, they're a great learning tool - I've already learned a few words!  Grin

There's another great item she sent, a Winnie the Pooh dvd! It has Swedish dub and/or subs, so I can watch it with subs while still learning, and when I'm more confident, I can watch it dubbed:

The creature there is Mr. Felix, who believes it is his right to sit on whatever I place on the bed.
Pictured also are a very thoughtful postcard, chocolate and some pretty crazy candy. I have no idea what that is, but it's good! It tastes kinda salty at first, but then it gets sort of like licorice.

A group shot, sans monsieur le chat:

And that's it!

Thank you so much, hollywood suicide, you were great  Wink

Hey, guys, there are some of you I haven't heard from at all. I hope all's well, if anyone is having any trouble with their partners, PM me or Proxima.

I can't remember if I said something or not, so just in case - everything is fine around here  Wink

Whew! Halfway through the large!

Tomorrow, time to tackle the medium!

How about mossariums? Mossariums are awesome, plus they look great on a windowsill.
The volumetric flasks would look great as vases for a tall, single stemed plant. The base should be large enough for the roots to grow to a comfortable size (can you tell I love seeing dirt through glass?).
Filling them up with colourful buttons or ribbons could be pretty cute, and useful, too.
