Bought two raffle tickets LAST JANUARY to support one of my student’s effort to fund her People to People Ambassador trip to Australia. They’ve been on my fridge, held by a magnet, for MONTHS!
Thanksgiving night an unknown number appeared on my cell phone. Was everything all right?
Yes, won two tickets to Sunday’s home Steelers Game. It was unexpected and fun to get the phone call, saying, ” You won!”
(Now if I’m going to win the Mega Millions Lottery around here, I’ll have to actually purchase a lottery ticket one of these days)
Hanging from a college student’s book bag. I asked if I could photograph the little creature with his mouth wide open. She told me it was Domo!
So I looked up Domo and learned about him and realize I am really behind the times in not having met him before. He’s been around awhile.
And I just met him now. And a quote from Wikipedia “Domo’s favorite food is nikujaga, a Japanese meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples because of an unexplained mystery in his DNA” You can check him out in stop animation features on Youtube, too.
And the urban dictionary says “Domo-kun is a small brown open-mouthed monster (hatched from an egg) who lives with a wise old rabbit underground and really, really likes TV. Domo-kun is the mascot of NHK’s BS2″
There are book bags and plush toys and I have never noticed him until a couple of weeks ago and that open mouth caught my eye.
Wednesday is the last day with students- Friday the last day of school for the year.
