I curled up with them listening to Joanna Newsom on vinyl. My roommate is so smart, she set up her record player behind the fridge, so we can listen to crackling guitars and also 80’s everything while we work! I like nestling myself against the oven waiting for the timer to go off, and now it’s even better cause I can sing along to Bowie.
This is one of those I can’t beLIEVE I didn’t write down what was inside these, mostly because I want to share it, not because I can’t probably make them again because I can, but they won’t be exactly the same and gosh knows I can’t recall the exact spices but I think there was cloves in there kind of dishes. Yummy little nubbins!
See, they had this ship, right? It had little holes for a drink and an ice cream, and your burger and fries came in the hold. Perhaps most importantly – your straw was the freaking masthead! Shiver me timbers, that’s amazing. When you’re a kid.
They called it a Pirate Pak and I obviously took it home a few times to play with, the same way I kept those little plastic swords that came with the fruit salad when we went out to chinese buffet restaurants with the odd jello desserts and the deep-fried everything. They changed up the design of this thing a few times. I remember running across it a few years ago with a sheet of stickers included so you could add characters and windows on top. !
See the bliss? The feeling of specialhood? I’m completely serious here, those fries were absolutely epicly delicious, because they came in a boat.
