Smencils and Eyelashes and Cakes, oh my!

Last night, I did a few things. First, I went to a holiday party at the MMAT Academy, which is where I take fitness class and hubs takes Tae Kwon Do. Then, I went to the movies for the first time in a long time. But I’ll get to the movie in my next post.

First, I want to talk about the party. The party was holiday party, coupled with a potluck, coupled with demonstrations by the students and instructors of the martial arts taught there. The demos lasted a bit too long, but the food was yummy. The party also had a fundraising raffle for the school. I wanted to donate some money, so I thought the raffle was a good way to do it. I had no intention of winning anything. I had $5 in my pocket, so I bought six tickets.

Three of those six tickets won. And what they won was the most random grouping of items ever.

Ticket one:  Smencils

Yes, they’re smelly pencils. I got watermelon and cinnamon.


Ticket two:  Semi-permanent eyelash extensions worth about $300
This was presented on a business card of the person who donated the gift. I never thought I needed anything like this, but I do now! 

 Ticket three: A fudge cake shaped like a coffee cup

Yeah, I know. That’s about the cutest thing ever.

It tastes as good as it looks.

On a side note, a little girl (about 6yrs old?) at the school came up to me and asked me for a dollar to buy a raffle ticket. I told her I had $5 and I already spent that $5 on raffle tickets.

She said:  “You ONLY have $5?”
I said:      “How much money do YOU have?”
She said:  “Zero”
I said:      “Well, it looks like I had $5 more than you.”


Oh, after I won the smelly pencils, she came up to me again and said, “I wish *I* had smelly pencils.”

Subtle. Real subtle.

  1. Damn that cake looks good — and I am not a huge sweets person!Wow on the eyelashes. How are they semi-permanent. How long do they last?Kids are so funny. I can see B doing that.

  2. K

    So, um, I wish *I* had $300 semi-permanent lash extensions. *blink*…. *blink*…

  3. Semi-permanent probably because lashes grow out/fall out. That's just my guess. And K, you are the only person I know who has eyelashes that hit your sunglasses when you wear them. So you can't fool me.

  4. i heart the new layout! and omg to the fudge cake…whoa
