This weekend I bought a giraffe scarf. Of course I did. I had to. It's not as bad as it sounds, though - even if it's specked with giraffes, it's not too quirky to wear for - work - for instance. Slightly depending on what your work is. I might not wear it for a job interview, just in case. But I could definitely wear it on a date. If I knew the guy was cool (but then he'd have to be for me to consider dating him in the first place, right? Right).
Anyway. This scarf. It is but the latest addition to a collection that is getting out of hand, frankly. People know I'm a crazy giraffe lady, and thus they buy me stuff with giraffes on it. I don't mind - by all means - but by now giraffes are so prominent a feature in so much of what I own that I worry I won't be able to convince any newbies in my life that I am sane. Oh, well. That milestone might have been passed a long way ago. Just take a look at the following list of giraffe-related stuff I own:
Giraffe earrings (two pairs)
Giraffe tote bag
Giraffe bed sheets
Giraffe "charm" for a charms bracelet (but since I don't wear a charms bracelet I tend to use it on a necklace instead)
Somewhere between 6 and 9 stuffed plush giraffes, and one knitted.
Giraffe photo holders
Giraffe coffee mugs
Giraffe salad cutlery
Ornamental glass giraffe
Giraffe wall poster
Giraffe lollipop (I know, this shouldn't be part of a collection, but it's been sitting in my window sill for so long that I hardly doubt it's edible anymore. In fact, I doubt it ever was.)
Giraffe made of beer cans
Giraffe picture frames (yes, more than one)
Giraffe key chains (actually, this is just one, as I had another that broke. But it used to be more than one)
Giraffe diary (one of the few I ever completed has a giraffe pattern on the cover)
Giraffe Pinterest board
Giraffe nail brush
There might be more - for instance, people keep sending me giraffe postcards, pictures or stickers - but these were the ones I could remember off the top of my head. So yes. Crazy giraffe lady, indeed.
