First, an update: you couldn’t reply to the comments previous. My awesome webhost/tech guru, Chad, waved his magical wand and now you can. Hooray! So get out there and comment your ass off. I won’t stop you. Comments make my heart go pitter-pat.
Secondly, a picture! It was my birthday on Friday. I wasn’t too terribly excited about it [“depressed about it” might be a little more accurate] and Paige made this cake for me to cheer me up. Totally worked. Well, that and her other present: a bottle of Moscato wine. Yum!
I pretty much spent the day reading, which was awesome. Finally finished House of Leaves (Mark Z. Danielewski) and Outliers (Malcom Gladwell), both of which I had started months ago. That’s unacceptable, really.
Purchased with birthday money:
- In the Woods by Tana French
- Ghost Story by Peter Straub
- Third Frankenstein series book by Dean Koontz
- Tolkien’s Hobbit collector’s edition with original artwork and “Return to Bag End”
