Two Packages

Fugly Friday is on vacation today, because I say so. I'm still dealing with complications from the wisdom teeth surgery. Unpleasant. I highly recommend avoiding complications. But I digress.
I got two packages in the mail today. When the boy became the ex-boy a few weeks ago, I civilly mailed him back his things. I just got my things back in the same box, with my return address label still on it.
He misspelled my name. My first name. We dated for a year, it was sitting right in front of him on the return address label, and I get a package addressed to Sara S********.
So I really needed the second package, which was from my secret pal.
Since I can't keep it in any longer, I'm just going to start with OMG Hello Kitty knitting needles!

I squealed.
There was more Hello Kitty-ness with this reuseable lunch bag.

I am powerless against this level of cuteness, I swear.
Then comes the yarn.
Here's a skein of Wool Bam Boo, which I have heard good things about, but never tried.

And two skeins of cotton angora. I didn't even know someone made a cotton angora! I'm very intrigued by this one. Pattern suggestions? It's tempting me right now, and if I had a pattern in mind, I'm certain I would cast on.

And last but not least in the fiber department, there's sock yarn!
100% superwash merino from a brand called Mama Llama (which is cute, but there's no llama content). I'm sure I can find something to do with this.
And to top it all off, there's a bag of chocolate covered dried cherries. I hear cherries are a good natural painkiller, so I'm going to do the responsible thing and keep eating until I feel better.
Thanks, secret pal!
Fugly Friday will be back when I'm not feeling so fugly.

Oh. My. God. I seriously covet everything you've posted today. (Well, except the cherries. I've never liked them.)

And can I go smack the ex-boy for you? For shame.

Oh the nerve of the ex-boy. If you want me to give him a swift kick of the shins, I wouldn't mind.

Your SP did a most wonderful job. All that stuff looks great!

Have a great weekend! I hope you are feeling better.

I'm glad you liked the package, and I am even happier that it was a pick-me-up after the first box you got that day. Sheez. Even I knew how to spell your name right. What a loser he is. I'm glad he's not in your life-- you obviously don't need that one!

Your pal

What a freaking dumbass. It's good that he's gone....

Meanwhile, the secret pal package was cool! Chocolate covered cherries make everything better!
