I just returned from a trip to New Mexico and since I was not abducted by Extraterrestrials while in Roswell, I arrived home to find that Jay had returned from his sojourn... with goodies!
There was a very nice photo book of the different places that Jay went. The embroidery hoop is, of course, the diagram of the "Paper, Rock, Scissors, Lizard, Spock" game from the TV show "Big Bang Theory." That's going on the wall soon! Jay is peeking out of a mug (made by RaeRaggs!). (I should note that he rode comfortably inside the mug during his trip back home, although when GoldfishPollywog saw him in the mug, she thought it was a pincushion. Ouch!) The box next to the mug is some very nice-smelling organic coffee beans. Next to that is a jar of jam. (I made sure we have bread so I can try some soon.) The cup to the right of that is one that can be frozen to keep your drinks cold. The blue object in front to the mug is a ceramic model of an origami paper crane! A small seashell is sitting on the bag that says "Art Institute Chicago."
There are also a ton of mementos from the various places that RaeRaggs took Jay: the program from House of Blues (with wristband and access pass), the ticket and program from the Art Institute, the ticket for Spamalot, the ticket from the White Sox game, Brochures from places visited in Michigan and Minnesota.
