As our faithful readers already know, RBS headquarters are located in Santa Barbara, home of no less than three major wildfires in the past year. It’s been scary and chaotic, but I recently had the super fun experience of having Naseem and her mini-farm stay with me while she was evacuated. Said mini-farm included two adorable baby chickens that she just got. She wondered if owning pet chickens might turn her against eating chicken. I said that was okay by me, as long as she didn’t get any pigs. A Naseem who doesn’t eat chicken is one thing. A Naseem who doesn’t eat bacon might cause a tear in the fabric of the universe, and I’m fond of my existence.

baconfishSpeaking of edible pets, Cindy from the Hamburgerpanda Etsy shop sent me a link to a creation that I’ve long wished for: The Baconfish. Seriously, I’ve Googled Baconfish more times than you can imagine, just hoping that something like this would appear. And now it is a reality, at least in someone else’s head besides my own. I love that it looks like a puffer fish, one of my favorite species to find when I’m diving.

You can get this stylish design in both hangable and wearable artforms. Thanks, Cindy, for making just one of my bacon dreams come true!
