After opening my prezzies*, fosteronfilm and I roamed the aisles of Barnes & Noble for a bit. One of the attorneys I work with gave me a gift certificate there for my b-day**. And then we tried out a little sushi restaurant near our house for dinner--good sushi, but their vegetarian menu options were somewhat limited. I really love sushi, but ever since the excellent restaurant down the road closed down a few years back, we haven't been able to find a suitable replacement for yummy, inexpensive, and relatively nearby vegetarian sushi. Then we came home for cake and ice cream, a soak in the hot tub, and watched Monsters Inc.
It was a low-key but gratifying way to observe my annual increment of age indicator.
*The hubby got me two pairs of sexy boots! He knows me well, he do. I've been putting off buying any new shoes for the last year+ while our finances were in such dire straits, and while they've healthied up with my new job, I haven't given in to the siren call of new shoe splurges. Seems that Matthew hadn't missed my furtive-but-longing looks at shoe displays while we were out Christmas shopping .
**She's way cool, and I'm not just saying that because she got me a prezzie. She does art photography on the side, and is an interesting and impressive person all around . . . much like the rest of the people I work with.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I got very little writing accomplished these last couple days. Sigh.
It seems unlikely that I'll make an end-of-year, last minute, final sale, but I'm content closing out on 2006 with the one earlier this month to OSC's Intergalactic Medicine Show.
Farewell 2006, welcome 2007.
