I’ve been really tired.  And when I’m really tired, things that really aren’t that funny suddenly become HIRALIOUS to me.  Hiralious.

So, the other day I had a friend over and I offered her some snacks. One of those snack items was this here packet of Hello Pandas.

Exhibit 1.

Exhibit 1.

Note that it says they they are bite sized. This is important. It is important to know that there are no life size pandas filled with chocolate crème in that packet.  Also note that if you’re going to be pretentious and use the French word for “cream” for no good reason, you should at least get the spelling correct.  It’s crème and not créme.  The accents aren’t just for decoration.  Placement and type of accent changes the word.  In fact, I don’t know what a créme is.  I don’t think it’s a word.

Anyway, note that there are only bite sized chocolate cream filled pandas in the packet.  Not life sized ones.  Not life sized ones filled with cream, chocolate or otherwise.  But can you imagine what a life sized chocolate cream filled panda would be like?  Would that still be a snack?  Pandas are pretty big.  I don’t even know how you’d get one in that tiny packet.  Or how you would fill it with chocolate cream?  I would assume that you might be able to fill it with bamboo cream.  And what about the fur?  Do you think the panda is like Pooh and just has a jar of chocolate (or bamboo) cream and is stuffing his face with it?  But no, really.  How do they get the panda into the packet?

I have been exceptionally bad at remembering to take a contents photo of these Whimseyboxes.  And…I’ve forgotten to do so again for this box.

September 2013′s Whimseybox included a bunch of stuff for macramé home decor stuff.  In the box were,

  • Gray and yellow paracord
  • An assortment of wooden beads
  • A brass ring
  • A dowel
  • Some wooden tags

I’m not really sure what the tags were for.  I didn’t use them.

Anyway, this box was interesting in that you had enough material for one project but you had two projects to choose from.  Instructions were included for a wall hanging but there was a link to the site on how to make a macramé hanging plant holder.  I had meant to make the plant holder because I thought it was more useful than a wall hanging but…I accidentally cut some of the cord too short, so I had to make the wall hanging in the end.

I kind of followed directions.   I didn’t really need to since I’m quite familiar with macramé as I had done a lot of Chinese knotting as a child.  So I just loosely followed their instructions, taught one of the girls who was with me the basics, and ended up with this.

I am at a loss as to what do actually do with it though.
