POD 3: Fortune Egg, anyone?




We got a package from my grandma in Japan today. We found these eggs - little Japanese Omikuji egg. An Omikuji is a piece of paper usually with a fortune on it.

Anyways. I thought the little thing was so cute. And it turns out that the eggs have seeds planted inside of them and you can plant it....and supposedly, when it sprouts and grows, your luck is supposed to grow. So cool!

So that little piece of paper said: that I will be lucky in love if I go out of my way to help people, that I should eat those foods that I don't like but is good for me and "red" foods (carrots, tomatoes), my education/knowldge luck is good but I should put a lot of effort into it, I should have good luck if I go travel to a place I've never been to before (an excuse to travel this year, no?), that my relationships with people should be good this year, good things will happen if I don't be lazy (ha), and I should look for a job in places that no one else is looking.

Interesting. This lil egg is so cool!

I went scrap shopping today and spent $30+. I was like WTF? because most of my purchases were paper...then I realized that I bought some foam stamps and was like "OHHH." Them new Lil Davis stamps are so cool!
