The great fortune cookie disaster of 2010!

I usually don't eat the marginally good fortune cookies that accompany the delicious take out we get all the time. But I never want to throw away the good (or down right weird) fortunes that linger inside the cookies. So I've been saving them. That is until my ziplock bag was full. Then I thought that maybe it was time to unwrap the cookies, read my fortunes and then throw them away. Well, I forgot the bag out on the counter. As soon as the lights were off in the kitchen, Hana ripped open the bag and the cookies went flying. It was time to read my fortunes...







A naughty cat on the counter. I try to keep her off. But you know what happens when you turn your back for a moment. Disaster!


















This was my favorite fortune. Ha!









This fortune is perfect to tie in the art part of this week's post. My painting, "Snakes on a Painting" was a State Fair reject this year. I've never tried to get into the fair before. The good news is that my Snake's are in a State Fair overflow show at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Now through September 5. The opening was last Saturday night. It was really fun to see some of the almost 2,000 rejects. The great, the good and the down right ugly. Hey, I know what you're thinking... snakes are not ugly!





Finally, get a load of this fancy fortune cookie. It's the real deal. A yumo version that you get at my favorite Thai place Roat Osha. Just because I haven't eaten it yet doesn't mean I'm throwing this one away. I'm hoping that it says I will become a rich and famous artist. Oh, I think there was one that said, "dare to dream!"

I don't eat them either, but I never thought of saving them for later! I open them at the restaurant and either keep the fortune (if I like it) or leave the whole thing on my plate... that is one massive amount of fortune cookies, Sharon!!!

I wonder if Hana was more interested in the cookie or the plastice bag. Marshmellow could care less about what's in the bag he just goes crazy over plastic or cellophane.

Thats a cute post.Never heard that cats are interested in fortune cookies ;o Findus sometimes pull the bag off the toast and eat a little piece of the bread.

Hana is quite pretty and maybe not naughty, just cat-like! I loved that first fortune. Too funny!

What sweet little feet Hana has! We know we can NOT tell a cat what to do. This new generation I have had for 1.5 years are outrageous about the counters. My old guard would NEVER have done that--they didn't even do it in their youth.
