bento_box: KFC Christmas (KFC Christmas)
I know this is a silly post, but I follow Hello Kitty on Facebook (She’s real, okay? Deal with it. :P ) and it just posted this adorable photo of Kitty-Chan and family for Parents’ Day, which is apparently today! So Happy Parents’ Day, everyone, hope it’s a good one!

Happy Parents' Day from Hello Kitty!

I LOVE this! It’s my new project! I’ve also been looking for it for two years, and found it at Oh! Crafty Me! It’s originally from Sanrio, and it’s an easy-to-print and make mini chocolate box featuring my beloved Kitty Chan aka Hello Kitty, Sanrio‘s flagship character.

Isn’t it darling? Don’t you just want to eat it up? Well, I’m mirroring their link in case it goes down to make sure that everyone has a copy if they want it. Thanks so much to Oh! Crafty Me for preserving this bit of Sanrio history for us!

I’m not partaking in St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, due mostly to the fact that I’m working and too far away from any sort of celebration to get involved but I wish everyone a happy day!

I’m dealing with a little data entry, which I hate lol, and alternating between wasting time watching Jurassic Park and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, lol.

Hello Kitty

I hope you enjoy this adorable Hello Kitty pic that someone created (not me!) and posted to my facebook – Happy St. Patrick’s Day, all! Be safe, be responsible and have fun!

My very first use of my only Hello Kitty bento which includes the adorable Kitty-chan in strawberry-milk pink and sparkles. The bento came with a matching triangle onigiri press.

Green peas, baby carrots (raw), octodogs (little smokies), onigiri and a couple of Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses!

I’m a long-time lover of San-X. I know lightening is going to strike me for saying this, but as much as I adore Kitty-chan and would never say an unkind thing about her parent company Sanrio, San-x characters tend to be the more adorable ones by far (with the exception of Hello Kitty, obviously).

Rilakkuma, Monokuro boo and Mamegoma tend to be my favorites, so I’ve decided to start shopping around for pretty San-x things to make my life a little sunnier. Here’s the first of my haul, my Rilakkuma card that just arrived!

I love McDonalds, I do. I’m a child of the 80s, so it’s nostalgic for me and the shiny never wore off. Maybe it’s because I’ve only been to a McDonalds a handful of times in my life when I was very, very young because by the time I was 7 my mother had married my awful, abusive stepfather who thought my sister and I didn’t deserve anything – anything – and that included going out to eat. Even when we were in our early teens we never went, because we were supposed to go to school or church then come straight home and go into our room. It was more or less house arrest all the time, for no real reason. I think that’s part of the reason why Laota and I delight in such childish things now, because we’ll spend the rest of our lives trying to have a childhood without really knowing how.

Then, when I was 13, we moved to Missouri and a middle-of-nowhere town that only had a Pizza Hut, which was out by the highway and closed within a year of us being there. Seventeen years later and just the act of going to McDonalds is a treat for me, I even like the awful food. I’ve been about 3 times since my step dad died in 2006, and all of those times required a kind person to give me a ride 50 miles to the nearest town with franchises.

So we’ve established that I love things that little kids love, which is why when Laota and I found out through a random Google Images search that McDonald’s had Hello Kitty toys in their happy meals, we hit the roof. There is no end to the love of Hello Kitty at my house. We love her so much that when Super Cute, the Hello Kitty balloon, debuted in the Macy’s parade a couple of years ago she instantly became the balloon we watch for the entire parade from that year on.

So, last night after shopping for the ‘rents Christmas, we used the ride we’d gotten to swing by the ever-busy McDonald’s and grabbed a couple of Happy Meals – and voila, Hello Kitty making snow angels!

And yes that IS a sticker pack on the back!

I’m in the jolliest of jolly good moods and I have been since Thanksgiving day (happy holiday, belated, btw!). My mother and stepfather were being asses, my sister was upset, my fakie brother ran away at the beginning of the month and I had to get along with strange relatives I didn’t know – and yet I’m bliss. Let me explain…

You see, there’s nothing about Thanksgiving Day that I love more than the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I wait eagerly for it every year, and every year something stops me from seeing it – that something is usually my mother. But this year that something was going to be the lack of a television, a contraption I haven’t watched in six or seven months. This year I thought, for sure, that I was going to miss my beloved parade.

But, instead of letting it happen and ruining what would without the parade be an uncomfortable, painful holiday, I decided to take matters into my own hands and use the tools available to me. In everyday language that means I started to search the internet. For anything, for any footage of the parade that may stream live or be posted after the fact. I tried metacalf, I tried dailymotion and I tried youtube. Heck, I even tried myspace and the official NBC website – nothing! But, I did find out that Earthcam streams a strategically placed camera’s worth of the parade from stories above the ground right, and I thought, eureka! It’s not the same without the announcers, but still good!

Well, on the day Laota and I were getting ready to stream our parade when all of the sudden I hear her say, “Got it!” and I looked over at her and say, “Got what?” – what she ‘got’ was a stream from Boxtv that was the actual show with the actual announcers – we got it right at the beginning, I about flipped! So now I’ve seen my parade, the holiday season is now officially started for me. And you didn’t think I’d leave you out, did you? Of course not! Here are some crappy snaps of my favorite floats, including Super Cute (Hello Kitty) and Virginia!

So I’ve finally got some crappy pictures of my newest bentos, both are licensed San-X and Sanrio and both are brand new, arrived in their packages – I’m all giddy. :D

First up we’ve got a yellow Rilakkuma aka Relax Bear bento box and it’s 3rd year anniversary bag which isn’t the origial blue drawstring that’s supposed to go with it, but I bought them seperately:

Rilakkuma 02

The next is of my strawberry-milk colored Hello Kitty onigiri bento ( more pics when I get time ), which has no bag at the moment but it did come with a little triangular pink onigiri mold – how cute is that?

Not about food ( although a pic of the turkey may come later tonight! ), but being a bento lover as I’m sure all bento lovers who visit HL agree, I know that the single most important figure in all of bento culture is the super cute Kitty chan, aka Sanrio’s Hello Kitty. So, I’ve got some non-food but definitely bento-worthy news to report for those of you who may have missed it, today marks the very first year that Hello Kitty made her way down Broadway to 34th street in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. There’s a blurry from-the-tv camera phone picture below of Kitty dressed up in her hero’s garb as “Supercute”, which she definately is!

SUPERCUTE!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! :D
