Let me start this post by saying thank you to everyone for the gazillion Happy Birthday wishes and ecards! You guys are the best!!! I don't think I've ever in my whole life had my birthday acknowledged by so many people. I'm really touched and so very appreciative. Oh, and Sherri? Please tell Big Al thanks so much for the picture of him in his sexy boxer shorts... it was my favorite present and I framed it right away and put it on my nightstand!
(Yeah, sometimes I crack myself up, too! ;)
I had a great dinner/movie non-date with the Republican last night. His politics suck but he's really a sweet guy and he even brought me flowers. Awwww. We saw Taken with Liam Neeson, which was pretty good, though very violent and a smidge (and by 'smidge' I mean 'really, seriously, awfully') disturbing. Definitely not typical Valentine's Day or birthday fare. Anyway, I got home late and wound up staying up until 3am chatting with one of my favorite bloggy people who lives in a different time zone (and therefore probably didn't/won't wake up all bleary-eyed and incoherent this morning... like I did). But it was good... you bloggy people are pretty cool!
This morning Ryan gave me my birthday present. Remember how I said that she always tries so hard to pick out the perfect present? Well, she did it again. Andrew Wyeth is one of my favorite artists... he did a painting called Master Bedroom, which I've loved since the first time I saw it, several years ago. Ryan got me the print... you can probably tell why I like it so much....
Thanks again to everyone for the birthday wishes! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! And now I'm off to catch up on blogs, as I'm way behind... later, 'gators!
