Thanks to everyone who swung by to wish me Happy Birthday yesterday!
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.
"I'm sure Hubby's decision to buy you sexy boots (2 pairs!) was completely altruistic and intended only to please you and no one else."
Hee! He actually exercised some restraint and got me relatively comfy and practical sexy boots. He actually opted not to get me the thigh high, 4-inch stilettos which, while fetching, would've gotten rather limited wear.
