It's been a wild and crazy day and it's not over yet! I think I might just have to get this new CD for myself as a birthday present:
UPDATE, The Morning After: Whoa. That was a whallopalooza of a birthday last night! Friends opted to give a dinner party for me, at my house, no less ("because you have the best kitchen!"): Scallops, sauteed with bacon and served on a bed of lightly cooked lettuce and swiss chard, devilled eggs, and CHAMPAGNE! Lots of champagne. My haul included a rain gauge, a Flax skirt and top, a Kindle (woo hoo!), and a squeaky rubber chicken named Henrietta - oh, not to mention a great burn-your-brain photo of Ann Coulter over at the ever-wonderful World O'Crap. Thanks heydave and Scott! And thanks to Jeannette, Dayton, Andy, Sandy, Pamela and Debra for a wonderful dinner and evening!
