Oh the fun you can have with a mannequin hand...

I'm not one of those people who ever win anything.  Seriously, I could buy 99 tickets out of a 100 ticket lottery, and as sure as eggs, the bastard who bought the other ticket would win the pot.  Over the years I've bought lotto tickets, scratch-it tickets, raffle tickets, and keno tickets, but the most I've ever walked away with was the odd twenty bucks.  Simply put, I'm not lucky.

So you can imagine my delighted surprise when I found out a little while back that I'd won a giveaway that Valerie was running over at her blog Valerie Nunez and the Flying Platypi.  Like I said, I never win anything, so the fact that I was chosen for this one was amazing, cause I really really wanted what she was giving away.

Want to know what it is?  Well, take a look at this baby!




Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you all to Pinky Tuscadero, so named because she has a pinky (obviously), and because I firmly believe she'd make out with The Fonz if given half a chance.  She's a bit of a strumpet.

Valerie sent her with a along with a Congratulations On Your New Baby Hand card, and a Sad Keanu, who will from this point on be taking up residence on the corner of my computer monitor.



Gypsy the Feline Dictator was a little reticent at first, she doesn't like having her power base threatened, but after Pinky showed that she was well versed in the chin scratching arts Her Royal Catness thawed a little.


But of course, there's no room for layabouts at Casa del Kellie ... well no more room, Gypsy has that one sewn up ... so the day after she arrived I took her into the library with me and put her to work.

It turns out she's not such a hot typist.  When I complained, she kept saying that her fingers don't move, so it's unreasonable of me to expect her to do 100 words per minute.  Excuses, excuses.


So then I decided to try her with some paperwork, but I have to say, her handwriting was rubbish.



She did a bit better when I asked her to get me a cuppa.  Looks like we've found a niche for her!  Welcome to the company, Pinky the Tea Lady!


Thank you so much, Valerie!  I'm sure Pinky is going to make an excellent addition to my workplace. I've been telling people I needed a hand with my job for ages!

  1. What an awesome giveaway! Just wait til the next time someone asks you, "Kellie, can you give me a hand with this?"

    1. Oh, I'm all over it! I've already used that one three times! I don't think it'll take long for my workmates to start avoiding that particular phrase.

    1. Well, right hand woman maybe. I refuse to believe a man could have hands so much more delicate and tiny than mine.

    1. Very true, although I suspect that Pinky would give me the finger if she could only put the other ones down.

    1. And my Pinky is shaping up to be just as much of a bad ass. She's got quite the attitude, considering she's a dismembered hand.

    1. I had so much fun when I took her into work! They all knew she was coming, so everyone wanted to see her. I felt very popular, although I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that they came because of her and not to see me.

  9. That is too freaking funny. Who wouldn't make out with the right era Fonz? Fonz jumping the sharks, yeah I could do without him.

    1. True. Early era Fonz is definitely a cute. Later Fonz ... not so much.

    1. Tell them that Pinky is settling in nicely. I'm teaching her how to pilfer the stationery supplies and jam the photocopier ... give it a few weeks and she'll be just like every other cubicle dweller.

    2. They are super excited she's adjusting so well!

  11. How about a big hand for the lil lady?! I'm sure you'll have hours of entertainment with your new prize. I am so envious. So. Envious. Oh and, Merry Christmas!

    1. Ah, that's the question. There's a mannequin out there somewhere, searching for its missing hand. Creepy, huh?

    So want to meet her.

  14. I would have loved to hear your explanation to your coworkers why you brought a dismembered mannequin hand to work. Congratulations on winning Pinky.

  15. I am oddly jealous you have a mannequin hand, or as my son calls girls, a womaquin hand.
