What the--?

So I'm home alone today (soccer seeding tournament for the kids), planning my son's cake for his pirate-themed birthday party tomorrow. And I've been searching the house in bits while picking up and getting sucked in with anteka's fantastic plastic!Winchester stories (three new ones while I was on vacation. Three!)

The search becomes more desperate, as I re-check my cake supplies again and again and again. I get the chair out to search the cupboard where the supplies live. I search the toy basket. The kitchen toy drawer. My son's closet, and the toyroom upstairs. The storeroom again. The stash of left-over party supplies. The toy drawer again. And the truth is clear....

Where the FRACK is my little cake-decoration pirate ship from three years ago? I don't even have the "cargo sacks" piece I used on last year's cake.

GAAAAAAH! *off to Cake Castle to buy pirate supplies*
