pg tips chimp

pg tips chimp
I have a confession to make: I'm a big old insufferable anglophile. I even watch Mr. Palfrey of Westminster on PBS, that's how bad it's gotten. This obsession extends to the gastronomic - I always try to have a can or two of Heinz beans on hand, and I'm never without my PG Tips tea.

So when one of my flickr contacts, bettybean, posted a photo of a knitted chimp toy that came free with a box of PG Tips, I got a little excited. Knitted toy! Chimp! PG Tips! Could it be any more perfect? I commented to that effect, and she offered to send me one, direct from London. And here it is. Again I say: hooray for the internet. Thanks bettybean!

Completely unrelated, but if you'd like to see a photo (taken by Rain) of me with comic genius Brian Posehn, here you go.

LOVE the Chimp. He looks a little bemused by his recent travels. I also love Brian Posehn. Just saw him with Patton Oswalt on Sunday in the Independent. Hilarious! You look super cute and happy in the photo.

Doesn't he look slightly patient & resigned all at once? His face just makes me laugh. Lucky you!
