Something New For The Milka Room

While we were at IKEA yesterday I got to pick a present and I chose a cool picture frame for the Milka Room.

It looks like a film roll isn't that cool?
I put in some of my favorite cards instead of photos though.
Can you spot the zombie?

A Trip To Ikea

This evening my owner and her OtherHalf took me on a shopping trip to IKEA

There was a big sign with a J on it near our car. My owner told me the sign was so we could easily find our car again.

We had arrived at IKEA around dinner time so we had something to drink...

And something to eat.

Shopping trips to IKEA are fun!

Suitcases and Art

GR'NN, a group of comicbook artists (including my owner's OtherHalf), is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a big expo and yesterday was the opening of that expo. My owner helped out a few times with transporting stuff for the expo, so me and my owner were invited to the opening.

First there was a speech and then music by a group called 'Men in a Suitcase'. They played a song about an elephant among others.

Then the expo was officially opened and we could go watch all the art there.

Look: there's the chicken leg!
It was part of a fairytale diorama, build in a suitcase. The theme of the expo was travelling and they had made lots of suitcase dioramas.

A dragon!

Next to the suitcase dioramas there were lots of cool and beautiful paintings and drawings and such.

This suitcase had a food theme.

A drawing that's both cute and creepy.

And there was a hedgehog shrine!
Isn't that cool!?

Hey.... Wait a minute!
Something looks familiar here.

It's the rabid, mutant zombie beastie!!
I had wondered where he had disappeared to. It turned out he had volunteered to be part of the expo.

And there's Cerberus!
He's also part of one of the dioramas.

I decided to take part in the expo too.
(Just for this picture though.)

This artwork is both beautiful and it makes me itchy.

I'm not sure what this one is about, but it looks cool.

Another one that's both beautiful and creepy.

All in all this is one beautiful and impressive expo!

After the opening of the expo we went out for dinner with the artists and some other people. We had yummy food and I had hot chocolate for dessert.

Pyramids and Dragons

Yesterday evening we tried out some new games.
First a game where you had to stack pyramid thingies on top of each other. It wasn't very challenging in my opinion, so I won't be playing it again.

Next we played Dragon's Gold.
In this game you have to fight dragons and haggle over the dividing of the dragon's treasure once the dragon is defeated. It was a fun game and I managed to get the most treasure!

This morning there was a huge chickenleg standing in our livingroom. I was told it had to do with a special expo that is opening this Saturday.

And I got invited to the opening!
I will make sure to take pictures so you can see what the expo is all about.

Cheese and Thievery

This afternoon me and my owner went into town to have a drink with a friend we hadn't seen in a while.

I got hot chocolate and a plate of cheese.

But somehow every time I turned my back on the plate, cheese mysteriously disappeared!

They're cookies that have special speculaas spices in them. They're very tasty.

This Saturday my owner's OtherHalf saw Sinterklaas.
Sinterklaas visits the Netherlands every year and on December 5th he brings lots of presents to everyone, but he always comes early so he can check up on people and see if they have been good and if they deserve their presents. And when he has just arrived he sometimes brings a small present for those who put out a shoe I'm told.

So yesterday evening me and the armadillo decided to put out our shoes (well, we borrowed some shoes anyway). We put a carrot with the shoes for Sinterklaas' horse and we sang some special songs for Sinterklaas as well.

First thing we did this morning is check the shoes to see if Sinterklaas brought us a present.

And there was indeed a present in the shoe I put out!

Chocolate Euro coins.

There was also a present in the shoe that the armadillo put out.

Little chocolate figures of Sinterklaas and Black Pete.

Oh, this is fun! I wonder if we get to do this again or if we now have to wait for December 5th. I'm going to say my proper thanks to Sinterklaas anyway so he knows I appreciate the present he left me:
Dank u, Sinterklaasje!

It was a Domo!
