12 Days of Mikey – Day 9

Today Day 9 started with a sign taped to my monitors with a devil picture on it. I pretty much figured out who had Day 9 right then and there, it was my coworker Aimee. She always uses the devil head almost daily in Yahoo IM. And sure enough she came in and had a mocha for me. What I didn’t expect was a little while later when my other coworker Aurora came in and also had a mocha for me, they both had Day 9. They were awesome and bought me lunch from Pi Pizza, it is a great place for wood fired pizza. Later this afternoon they got me again though, with all kinds of stuff. Some good and some bad.

The good things were a TARDIS cookie jar that makes the TARDIS noise when you open it. Also a mini-cake from Daube’s bakery here in town and some bacon salt.

Now the bad stuff they got me were all vegan goods and snacks. Most of the people who know me know that I am more of a carnivore than an omnivore so this was pretty funny. I got some Veggie Stix and some other rice puffed snacks. Some Vegenaise, which is a vegan form of mayonnaise, kind of scared to even try that one. And some Mixed Sea Vegetables that look like something from low tide at the pier. But one of my favorites was a mix of Buckwheat Pancakes. I had tried these from the good food store before and couldn’t even finish them, so I knew this one was a winner.

So thanks to Aimee and Aurora for a great day, some fun gifts, and for keeping me humble with vegetables.
