Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeeeee!

So, here is a list of what I got for my birthday, in no particular order:
  • Lots of companionship and everyone bought beers for me.
  • Extra hugs and lots of compliments and good wishes.
  • Jessica got me a cool vintage shirt and hosted me around town incessantly.
  • Kathey took me out for steak and gave me a really cute card and let me flirt with her boyfriend.
  • Mary bought me the kind of sunglasses there is absolutely no excuse for and hottie shoes.
  • Mom and Dad gave me a DVD player and chocolate macaroons.
  • Andrea listened to me burble incessantly and drunkenly when she really just wanted to go get laid.
  • Rosemary got me a turtle cheesecake and some cupcakes.
  • My cat Odista gave me a horribly mauled but still squirming bloody mouse on my pillow.
  • Emily gave me metastasized colon cancer.
  • My brother helped me buy a digital camera and a portable bubble machine.
  • Rob laughed at my jokes and acted like I was neat.
  • Kellie and Tex hosted a great dinner and let me play with their dogs and bring anyone I wanted.
  • And everyone was so nice to me and showed me so much love and tolerance and I know I'm forgetting a lot, but I really enjoyed my week in Austin, and my birthday went wonderfully, thank you so much, everyone.

Friday Five Answers

There's a fun little blog called Friday Five that posits five questions every Friday for people to answer either on the site comments or in their own here's my go at the March 5th questions, since that's the latest ones they have posted...oh, yeah, and that's probably because they won a 2004 Bloggie and have been busy!

What was...

1. ...your first grade teacher's name?
Miss Benson? Miss Barton? I can't remember. How weird is that? The last teacher whose name I can remember High School Senior English teacher, Mrs. Eddings. I think that was her name...

2. ...your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?
Transformers. They really are more than meets the eye!

3. ...the name of your very first best friend?
Lisa. She was my friend in Carlsbad, NM when I was 3-5 years old. We used to make mudpies a lot and once had an argument about whether you had to pretend to wash the dishes after pretending to have tea. (She said no, I said yes, almost knocked the playhouse over in the ensuing scuffle. I won.) Later I had another "friend" named Lisa, but the less said about that manipulative user the better.

4. ...your favorite breakfast cereal?
Cream of Wheat with butter, milk and brown sugar.

5. ...your favorite thing to do after school?
Buy a pickle and a coke and walk to my mom's store.
