Carbs–They’re Everywhere!

More boxes have arrived at the human female’s workplace.  Must be those pulse transducers she ordered a while back.

I never cease to be amazed at the various shapes of packing particles that Midgardians come up with.  It’s almost as if they don’t know how to work a simple stasis spell to keep the contents of their shipping containers during transit.

These particular bits are sort of H-shaped in cross section.

(sniff! sniff!)  Something smells…  Cereal-y?  Snack-y?  What the…?

(teeny taste…)

Sigyn, I’ve heard of these!   This is a special kind of packing schnibble that’s made of starch.  When you’re done with them, you can just dissolve them in water.  You can even eat them, though I wouldn’t recommend it—or at least, not without a good salsa to help them go down.

Ehehehehehee!   You can also lick them and stick them on things.  They do more than static onto stuff like the styrofoam ones.  They actually work just like glue, and once they’re on, it’s really hard to get them off.

Forget snacking on them—I think it’s time to redecorate the human female’s office.

Um, Sigyn…

Well, that little slug fellow turned out to be quite unsuitable as a house guest.  We shall keep trying.

(later)

Sigyn, my beloved, I know I told you that you should get out a little bit and make some new friends, and maybe even ask them around to visit, but this is not what I meant.

A Shaky Grasp of Geography

Oh, look!  It’s package-o’clock again!  The human female has ordered another book on stitchery.  This one is coming from the other side of the planet, realm where the people look like my stupid brother’s friend Hogun.

I am doing my best to see that its arrival is anything but uneventful.  Today I made sure the human female received this helpful tracking notice:

Um.  Yeah.

This Time the Human Male Ordered Something, Part IV: All Good Things Include Dessert

There is one last little thing in the box.

This vendor sure does like little organza bags.

Oh!  Now this looks promising!

penbox15

I’m not sure who Lonka is, but this looks as if it might be something edible.  Tiny, colorful, individually wrapped things often are.

But then, so are erasers.

I have my trusty dagger, Sigyn.  Shall we cut a few samples and find out?

This Time the Human Male Ordered Something, Part III: So There IS a Pen In Here

There is  so much whatnot and stuffage in this box that  I am beginning to wonder if there is actually a pen in here.

We shall keep rooting.

Wait—this looks promising.

penbox10

It is at least pen-shaped.  Let me just pull out the bubble wrap.  (We can have some fun with that later.)

penbox11

Ah.  It comes out all in one piece.  But yes!

penbox12

It does look as if there might be an writing implement in here!  The human male likes dark green, so I have good hopes this will be yet another in that hue to go in his collection.

penbox13

Rats! 

Oh, well.  At least we have a Happy Sigyn.

This Time the Human Male Ordered Something, Part II: Everything BUT A Pen

The bizarre postcard is not the only thing in this box.  The pen merchant has included quite a collection of other bits and bobs.

This says, “Chocolate” and we are very hopeful that there is something tasty inside this clever little paper carton.

penbox5

Hogun’s topknot!  It is just ink!

penbox6

And it is not even GREEN ink.

There looks to be more ink in this little yellow bag.

penbox7

Vindication!  One of the ink samples is red and the other is, in fact, green.  I’m sure you can guess what the male’s chances are of actually getting to use either of these…

But wait, there’s more!

There is a little notebook.

penbox8

And what is this, then?  Could it be?

penbox9

Is it perhaps?

Wait and see…
