the story of an invisible girl
It's after midnight, so it's my birthday
I have some really great friends. I organized myself a birthday dinner this evening, and ten wonderful people showed up. It was neat, because there were friends from a variety of circles, so several people didn't know one another. We went out for tapas and sangria, and it was a perfectly lovely night. Everybody seemed to get along well, there were lots of conversations going on all over the table, and it was just generally a lot of fun.

I received several cards, an embroidered cannon (with a person about to be shot out), a Javagirl t-shirt (and not even homemade), 36 homemade cookies (milk chocolate no nuts), and a giant purple-wine-redish rosebush (ready to be planted).

I wanted to put exclamations points after each of the preceeding phrases, but it would have looked excessive. But that's how I feel, full of exclamation points and friends.

What will tomorrow hold? I don't know what I'm doing for sure, but I'm hoping to give blood in the morning. My birthday gift to the world (or at least to 3 people in need). I'll play the rest of the day by ear.

Tonight I am feeling pleased and well-loved.

"Tonight I am feeling pleased and well-loved."

And so well you should. Have a wonderful birth day. I love the idea of the rosebush - plants are such a rewarding gift. Don't forget to have breakfast before the blood-letting!

Happy birthday, hon.

Happy Birthday! Isn't it great when it falls on a weekend? :)

May you live to be 100 years with one year to repent.

Happy Birthday, lady! So sorry I couldn't attend the festivities... I'm still struggling to get my life under control. I really wish I could have been there. Up for lunch at the mall any time soon? We should set something up.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: June 3rd, 2007 01:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's okay, I know you've got a lot going on right now.

I'd love a mall lunch. I've taken next week off (to go visit the family), but let's do it the following week oh shoot, and I'll be in Ann Arbor for training the following week....

hmm. Any chance monday or tuesday would work? I don't leave until tuesday. Or in a couple of weeks. *hug*

Happy belated birthday. How old are you know???? *Yeah I know, never ask a lady her age... and she won't have to kick you in the shins* :P
renniekins From: renniekins Date: June 3rd, 2007 01:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't mind, plus you're not near enough to kick... thirty-six!
