distracting

My boss bought me this [cute?] little guy on her trip to Iceland.


She didn't tell me anything about him, so my imagination is left to run wild.

Maybe he is a curse, and just like Pinocchio my nose will end up growing in size as a result.  [Do you see the size of his schnoz?]


Maybe he comes alive on Halloween.  [Only a few days left to test this hypothesis.]

Maybe he brings the Icelandic spirit with him and will turn everyone in sight into a ravishing, blue-eyed blonde.

Maybe, as is my preferred hypothesis, if left on my desk he will protect me from all the evils of the office environment.

Or maybe, as is the most likely hypothesis...

he doesn't do anything...

and just sits on my desk...

and distracts me from my work...

making me wonder about what it is he represents.

Which is probably nothing.

[Yep, it's one of those days.]

p.s. My brother Jeff is staying with us right now, because he's down in Phoenix for job training.  I love Jeff.  And I also love that because Jeff is here, I have another excuse to go to Bahama Bucks.  [I've got to be a good hostess, you know.]

Ha ha that's cute! I have one just like it that I got from Denmark when I was ten. Also, I make us go to Bahama Bucks every time we go to the temple (which is every week)! We always get a baby sized one and share it on the way home. :)

That thing is HILARIOUS! And I love all of your hypotheses! I really hope he comes alive on Halloween! :] And I am craving Bahama Bucks now! Next time I'm in the valley I'm getting some!!

hahahahahahhahahaha!!! This is hilarious. Oh my goodness. I hope he comes alive and grants some wishes on Halloween. That'd be awesome.

I love him! He reminds me of the trolls I collected when I was little. And I totally know what you mean about one of "those days" at work. Pretty much every day at work is one of "those days" for me.
