The dinosaurs managed to break into the fridge this morning. Spinosaurus and the raptors headed straight for the eggs, cheese and meat; while Stegosaurus and Triceratops were working on the tomatoes and cucumbers; and T-Rex was focused on the wine. Inara pulled them out when she found them – not because she was worried about them stealing all the food, but because she was worried about them getting hypothermia.
The dinosaurs have been planning this heist for a while. They rigged up a serious set of ropes to break into the kitchen cupboard and make off with the bag of chocolate coins (Inara’s favourite special treat – which makes sense since she is a pirate). Inara was so impressed with their ingenuity that she hasn’t even tried to stop them.
The dinosaurs made pizza this morning – luckily in Inara’s kitchen, not mine. They were quite enthusiastic about it, although I’m uncertain how some of the fruit they started to cut up will go with the rest of their creation (kiwi on pizza is not for everyone I imagine).

Inara was particularly impressed by the fish that had appeared in the bowl of water and Wind River rocks, and by the […]
