Yeah, like THAT title made sense. Following up my post of last week where I lamented that I only had two of the smiling Bhuddas out of what turned out to be a set of six, I returned to the store with BFF the next day and nearly freaked out when I found out they didn't HAVE the complete set of six in the larger ones. But they had little tiny ones (cheaper, too) and...
*sob!* I lined the cute little tiny smiling Bhuddas up on my palm...only FIVE!!!
So I walked over to the salesclerk and said, "I don't suppose you have more?"
She smiled. "I have a brand new set in the back, in the box."
BFF laughed. "Now you can quit freaking out about the set. But won't that still bug you?"
Okay, so I'm a little on the OCD side. Unfortunately, it wasn't the obsessive cleaning tic.
I like things "even." I also compulsively check door locks and coffee pots. (Which annoys my son to no end, the running joke is everyone cheers if we get out of the driveway on the FIRST attempt.)
Nope, because the two big ones are now "bookends." They match. And...I picked up a "money frog" (who came with his own Chinese coin) to balance out Ganesh. So I now have (left to right, I need to get a picture of this) Big Bhudda, Money Frog, six little Bhuddas, Ganesh, and Big Bhudda.
*ahhhhhh!* That's the sound of the universe coming back into alignment. I also picked up a set of baoding (?) balls (Chinese medicine balls) and man are those things tricky, but addictive. I'm hoping working with them will help the arthritis in my hands. I found a video of a guy who is wicked fast with them.
Also, lately, BFF hasn't had good luck in love. She's in the middle of a divorce, and I've been joking with her that I need a good woodchipper for body disposal to make gator chum for the canal out back. (Hey, they joke about it on Dexter!) I joke about the joys of woodchippers so much that she joked I needed a mini one to go with my Bhuddas and my other two statues (which I also need pics of), one of which says, "The voices in my head don't like you," and the other says, "I live in my own little world. That's okay, they know me here."
Tonight, SCORE! I found a hobby site with miniature woodchippers! (How many bodies can a writer chip if a writer could chip bodies...hmmm, doesn't have quite the same ring...) I ordered one in red and one in yellow. They had blue in the picture but not listed on the site.
Is that weird? *LOL!*
Don't answer that.
I also have two of those mini traffic cones. One says, "Do not disturb, I'm disturbed enough already." The other says, "Give me coffee and nobody gets hurt." I also have a stuffed Elvis Stich (from Lilo and Stitch) on one of my computer monitors. And a stuffed lizzard from Animal Kingdom.
Hey, it's my desk, I like it. If nothing else, it reminds my hubby to bring home really dark chocolate at that time of the month to keep the monster content! *LOL*
