Things I need or want...  
First, Idol voting closes today. There are only 20 contestants left in the poll, and lots of good things to read! I'm hoping my entry is one of the ones you like. And maybe you'll be inspired to try it out yourself in an upcoming season?

This weekend, I was at Target and drifted into the luggage section. Why—WHY—do I not have a child of appropriate age who wants and needs a Minion-themed rolling suitcase?? There's also this one, which is ridiculously cute and really expensive, but I prefer softsided suitcases—especially those with pockets. Lots of pockets to sort things!

As you can imagine, what I really hate are duffel bags that have a single container where you just throw everything in. Try finding your toothbrush later in THAT!

I also want fresh chocolate-chip cookies right about now, but I pretty much always want that. Yet somehow, at my office full of engineers, those are not just lying around for the taking. :(

Oh, Monday. Why are you always so "Monday"?

those minion suitcases are so cute.

someone in your office is totally falling down on the job, if they're not providing you (ok, and your coworkers) with chocolate-chip cookies. mmm, chocolate chips. good for what ails ya. :D

Aren't those suitcases something? I find the minions painfully cute, and those are awesome. :D

Some of my coworkers do bake-- a couple of the men, even-- but most of them are male engineers. At best, they might buy things from the bakery section of a store.

Except for the baking fiends, but one of them makes only Rice Krispy treats (*cries*) and the other makes his own vanilla (which tastes like vodka and weirdness) and does not have a terribly good sense of taste. And rolls his chocolate chip cookies. :O

I could not make this stuff up.

My daughters LOVE minions. They were twinions last halloween (twin minions.)

I wish I could buy them that kind of luggage. Alas. But at least they got to be minions. They each have a stuffed minion. They used to have minion tee shirts but they grew out of them. Sad.

One had a minion cake for her birthday in Nov. Minions are everywhere!

Ooh, twinions! How awesome!

ETA: HalfshellHusband rightly requested pictures of them in their costumes!

The minions are so cute, so silly. They were easily my favorite parts of the Despicable Me movies. :D

Minion cake! I would totally make that for my kids if one of them wanted it, but they're 16 and 18 now, and the oldest also is anti-minion. I can't explain THAT at all. :O
