Homestead: Tofu Update II: Not Really About the Tofu

20 Nov

I happened upon that entry I wrote¬† a year ago about my knitted tofu friend, Oishii, living at my desk at work. And I noticed that his plant friend standing behind him was a SHRIMP! Now it’s a giant mess!

Before: A piece of one of my house plants re-rooted and brought in to the office. How will it fair without any natural light?

After: Apparently, it fairs quite well. LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING.

If, like me, you’re awful at taking care of plants, just get one of these things and leave it at your work, because it will thrive.


Homestead: Tofu Update

10 Nov

Remember my little knitted tofu guy that I made? I finally found a name for him!


Someone at my knitting group came up with it, it’s Japanese for “tasty” and it’s perfect!!!!!

Here’s a pic of him at his current permanent home in my cube at work.

Hes so cute and smiley.

He's so cute and smiley. I wish more people would come to visit me at work so I could throw him at them and they could cuddle with him.
