Weekly Words Challenge 72!

The "words" for this week were Z and Abandoned.

I was really pathetic this week. No, really. The only picture I took for the challenge was...

Z for Zelda

It's not even interesting. Next weeks words should be a lot more inspiring.


Bento for Hoop (Valentines)

Bento for Tink (Valentines)

One morning, when I was running even later than usual, Hoop offered to make my lunch. He called at noon to ask if I had seen his note. "Your note?" I asked, looking for some paper or napkin tucked into my box. "In the fruit!" So I looked at my fruit and saw...

"House, circle, I? Is this a cleaning reference?" "Turn it around." "Oh!"


(Other Random Photos)

Chef Hoop

Oddly, this was one of his Christmas presents.

Wasp in Lemon Tree

If you haven't joined the fun yet, go
here for details. We also have a Flickr group for easy shareability. Not only do you get to add "Lowly Foon" to your resume, but you get to find out the new words at least an hour earlier. Happy snapping!

The words for next week are:
Expressive Face

Daily Etsy Pick:
Koi Fish in Scarlet and Electric Orange
Sasquatch In My Pocket
Owl Recipe Cards

WTF Etsy?:
Bacon Devils
Turd Burglar Magnet
Golden Girls Necklace
Boobie Pin (Mature)

You Heart Etsy:
Star Trek Corset (Chris, who tipped me off on this gem, and I agree that they should put a disclaimer stating, "wearing corset will not guarantee awesome rack like one shown". Because there might be, you know, some confusion.)

You Heart Etsy:
Sushi Pillows (Amusing was awesome enough to tip me off on these should-be-Etsy items.)

Man, lookit Hoop, what a nice guy, and once again, the bento is rockin' Me and JAY ARE COMING OVER FOR LUNCH.
I got my z pic up!

I was pathetic too... I spun the "Z" around so that my brain remembered it as "M" -- so I have lots of "M" snaps filed away...

I am loving the daily Bento sharing. (Thought I'd tell you even if I can spell it out with food...)

DAISY (the blogger formerly known as Amusing --shhhh! Don't tell anyone! It was a secret shift after discovery!)

PS My "abandoned" pix are posted. Though there's plenty more where that came from....

Those bento boxes are just so cool! but the wasp...*shiver*...the wasps, they scare me.

Those owl cards are really cute!

I wasn't looking for a "message" in the fruit either...but what a great thing to find. Sweet Hoop!

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger Jay said...

What's impressive about Hoop's message in a bento box is that you've already married him. He doesn't have to be Mr. Wonderful anymore. LOL

I have to agree with all of these comments--Hoop is a really great guy. And look at that smile. So adorable.

I had a hard time with the Z....I like your take on it!!

I'm loving your Bento pics, they are so artsy! And Hoop is quite a handsome guy! You are a lucky gal!

Mines Here!

Off to check out the Etsy finds!!!

okay I'm an idiot; I typed a comment and forgot to press publish then couldn't remember if you moderated your comments, thus the idiotic comment above! hehe

My pics are up and I kinda like my choices this week.

And I totally saw the house in the oranges too, but when you turn it around ~ how sweet is he? awesome.

Crap! Zelda. I wish I had thought of that, I have every game. Excellent pictures, That wasp is spooky big.

Hoop rocks.

Apparently "great rack" drew my attention to the etsy link. Yeah I'd pay money to see that on TV. She was really pretty but had to be barely 17.

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger Reb said...

Awww! Hoop is so good to you, making you little notes in your food. The wasp photos are great, if a bit creepy.

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger fiwa said...

Awww... I love Chef Hoop's love note - how sweet. Those are the kind of things that make my day.

The wasp - you're braver than me. I woulda squashed it.

Awww - what a lovely love note! :)

I played again this week - three weeks in a row :

I was all, "House? Bunch of raspberries? I?"

Then I scrolled down. :)

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger Janet said...

Hey Jay...that's so not true...and why I'm divorced from my husband ;-)

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger Chris said...

I'm pretty sure that boobie pin is IMmature... ;)

Awwww! about the fruit message. Good thing you didn't trip and drop your lunch and mess up the fruit in the container...

At 17 February, 2009, Blogger Tawcan said...

I hope Chef Hoop made some delicious food for you. :)

Pics are up as always.

Those bentos are good... I need to go back and re-read about them.

I like your Z photo. The wasps scare the shit out of me though.

I'm in this week, although I still feel I could've done better. Work is kicking my butt and we're about to move offices, so I guess I'm just bogged down. :))

I tried though.

I didn't even think of the Zelda game! And I forgot about Zoo (duh!) so I missed out on that one, too. Lucky I had a sleeping cat!
But I love the additional pics, even though I don't really want to see any stinging insects.
Mine are up, last week's and this week's. DH is nearly done with his week off from work and I can return to blogging regularly!

That second wasp photo is wonderful.. as is Hoop and his loving message.

At 18 February, 2009, Blogger Peggy said...

At 18 February, 2009, Blogger Real Live Lesbian said...

I think I have a crush on Chef Hoop! He is seriously adorable and packs a great lunch ;)

I like the zelda photo

At 19 February, 2009, Blogger ETK said...

Dear Tink,

I would like to move in with you so you can make ME a bento! They are so cute!


At 20 February, 2009, Blogger Gin said...

Z was tough! I have mine up, finally!! It's been a busy week.

Love the lunches du jour and that chef hat is tres chic. (I don't speak French, BTW!)

Macro shots are so cool...that wasp is neat looking!

Hoop got a pillowcase? Kewl

God, you really have to shop for those Bento boxes. You just don't have all that good food laying around. Erm, ah, maybe you do, you're in Florida. I wonder if I could do up a little snowball/sealmeat Bento and make it as cute as Hoop's?

At 23 February, 2009, Blogger Me said...

These bentos creations of yours, they're beautiful. You're the best wife ever.

Can we have a post dedicated to them someday soon, please :)
