Another Year Older and Deeper in Debt

It's my birthday! Yeah! Presents! Adoration! Tiaras! Whoo-hoo!

I'm officially older than dirt, and have lived more than half of my expected life. I can still drink young punks under the table, and shake my bootie till the wee small hours. I can't actually get up the next morning, but by the middle of the afternoon, I'm fine. It's the small victories, people.
The RLA was the first with the presents this morning. He gave me a beautiful Spanish fan... for the hot flashes. On the one hand, I think this is lovely, and dear and sweet. On the other hand, I'm ready to shove the thing up his ass for reminding me about them. He insisted that I bring it to the office, to have it always at the ready.

I was too polite to remind him that my office keeps its thermostat at the requisite Florida setting of Meat Locker, and that I keep a heater under my desk to keep from getting frostbitten toes. I don't think he reads my blog often enough to read this, either.

My second present was from RJ, who sent me a birthday e-card that had a downloadable tiara. I'm wearing it. I have absolutely no shame. Or pride. One or the other. In an hour we'll have our company holiday lunch, which means... more presents!! And food!! And wine!!

Life is good. Or at least a hell of a lot better than the alternative.


Please note the fabulous red Swingline stapler in the background among all the crap on my desk and surrounding areas.

Many happy returns, and loads of delightful exchanges!  Birthdays happen to the nicest people sometimes!

OMG!  HAPPY FREAKIN’ BIRTHDAY!  And such a very nice tiara.  Everyone should have one.  And wear it always.

I dare you to write again, after lunch.  And all that lovely wine… ;)

Have a blast!

Happy Birthday, cousin!  We have a little gift for you but haven’t made the trek to the post office yet.  My 50th is in 34 days, but who’s counting?

A belated happy b-day. I’m totally jealous about the stapler. All I have is the regular black one. But I have a lovely timestamp!

I knew the tiara would suit you!  I also knew that you are the only person I could send it to who would actually print it out and wear it!

I will get your prezzies to you soon - I swear it!
