Birthday Girl

As I've said before, I usually don't go around touting my birthday, and anyway no one's around to notice because they all go home to their families for Thanksgiving. (Yes, boo-hoo and all that.) But people do remember - there are lovely cards and lovely gifts and phone calls from friends and family. The Green Llama sang me Happy Birthday in Italian on my voicemail. There were flowers and Junior's cheesecake at the office. One of my co-workers gave me some eau de toilette called Charming - for I could certainly use a boost in that department, being the surly librarian grrrrl that I usually am (yeah, right, ha! goody goody is more like it).

Scott totally surprised me. First, there were chocolate truffles. That was the teaser gift. But then he presented me with a necklace - three diamonds, for our past, present and future. Isn't he great? (Altogether now: "Awwww" or "Ugh" depending on your point of view.)

We had brunch at IHOP, went to school to go work on stuff - I managed to get to 43,876 words by the end of the day. Dinner was at a romantic little place called The Printer's Devil ("a pub of the old type"), where Scott had sirloin, and I had salmon. We each went for chocolate desserts - brownie sundae for the husband, and a rich mini chocolate bundt cake for me. Yum.

Yes, it was a good day - a happy one, even.

Vielen dank, both of you! I'll need all the chocolate I can get for the big birthday next year. (gah!)

the big birthdays are a breeze - though it helps to be in italy for the big day ;] and not to mention that we both look/feel young too!
