Yesterday was my birthday. Alex and Steve and some of my friends got together to give me the grandest party I think I’ve ever had (short of my wedding and baby shower).
I am going to take this opportunity to say that I have the greatest friends in the world. I will put up some pictures later, but for now you will just have to imagine me making a duck beak with the cheddar cheese Pringles. Sober.
There was so much good food even I was not able to try everything. Sandra brought her crack dip and made me a strawberry shortcake, Joyce brought homemade salsa that had such a great bite to it, I don’t know, there was just a ton of food and it was all good.
Theresa gave me a themed gift bag of all back to the earth stuff, including a subscription to Mother Earth News. I’m embarrassed to list everything because you’ll think I’m bragging but this part IS bragging: just when I thought there couldn’t be another gift (I was not expecting gifts!), Alex suggested that I go check next to the TV, where I found my Wii!
Mmm hmm. You heard right. Somehow, Steve arranged to get a Wii for my birthday. And Alex set it up for me. Here’s the seriously perfect part: it had been set up for at least a day and I didn’t notice. I was so preoccupied with Second Saturday that they could have put an symphony orchestra next to the TV and I probably wouldn’t have noticed.
So, tune in later for pictures and if I don’t answer the phone, I’m probably just refining my Mii or beating the living daylights out of whatever moron has challenged me to a boxing match. I have a wicked right hook.
And I do believe I will start celebrating my 50th birthday on the 15th of every month for the rest of my life. I love you guys!
PS: My e-mail box had a pleasant surprise this morning and then today’s postal mail had a priority envelope addressed to me. I got not one, but TWO packets of Cock Flavoured Soup. Folks, it’s a sweet life, but someone’s got to live it.
