Pink Sock Monkey


Long Time No See

 

Posted Thursday, January 29, 2009

Pink Monkey feels a little bad about not visiting her new blog in so long.  Of course she doesn’t have many visitors, but she likes to pretend she does and she never wants to keep visitors waiting.  It’s always important to be a good host.

So much to tell!  Last Sunday, Pink Monkey and her partner in monkey crime went to visit his monkey family at the big Queen Mary boat in Long Beach.  Monkey wonders if this beach is really longer than other beaches, and if so, how much longer.

They all ate at the champagne brunch buffet in a huge room that made her think of the Titanic movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.  Pink Monkey thinks Kate Winslet is so pretty that she sometimes wonders what would it be like to be her very best friend so she could look at her all the time.  

In the large Titanic buffet room, Monkey filled her plate with food and ate it.  It was pretty good for being made for so many people and her monkey friends.

Monkey ate lots of bacon and mozzarella cheese.  Monkey likes cheese.  So does her monkey partner in crime.  There were also cheese blintzes that she dripped blueberry sauce on.  She shared some with Blue Monkey.  Cheese is an expression of love.

Then they went around the big Queen-Mary-like-Titanic boat where there were lots of other people walking around.  Babies, kid people, adult people, old people and some that needed wheels to get around.  It was very exciting.  Monkey’s favorite part was the spooky propellor.

The rest of the week has been very good.  On Monday, Monkey baked mac n’ cheese for her partner in monkey crime.  She made it with manchego cheese which comes from sheep milk and that’s why she thinks it tastes so baa-ram-good.  She also went to class on Monday and rode her bike to the school.

Me and my bike. Her name is Jumbo Hauler.

This is Monkey’s bike.  Her name is Jumbo Hauler.  She hauls jumbo things.  Monkey likes Jumbo Hauler very much because she has a bell that she rings to get people the BELL out of the way. 

Monkey is a very good rider, although riding on the street sometimes makes her nervous.  But she’s careful and wears her helmet. She always puts safety first.

 

I put safetly first!

That night she and Blue Monkey ate her cheesy mac with sauteed leeks.  Monkey also made a salad with apples, candied pecans, parmesan, arugula and prosciutto.

The other night, Monkey and her partner in crime watched a movie called Bigger, Stronger, Faster.  Monkey wishes she could be all those things, except only bigger in some places.  There were many famous people in the movie: Rocky, Rambo, Conan, Hulk Hogan, a guy who looks like the governor of the western state called California, and another guy who looks like Mr. Obama’s vice-president man.  Monkey didn’t understand what steroids really were before watching, but now she has to think twice before judging people for taking them.  It was a good lesson to learn.  

The rest of the week has been full of eating, sleeping, class, work, cello-playing, thinking, trying-not-to-think thinking, watching movies, and eating again.  Monkey is very excited because on the food-eating schedule for tonight, Blue Monkey is making carnitas.  Pink Monkey like carnitas.  She likes putting them in warm tortillas and then putting them in her mouth.  If Monkey weren’t a monkey, she would be a piggy because piggies are delicious.
