On this day 22 years ago I watched Shogun, went shopping at the old Woodwards store at Oakridge, had a baby and the groundhog told us we would have an early spring. Happy Birthday, Love Mummy.
My family is weird.
Thank the gods. ^.^
Anyway, I went to school, fell asleep in class a little, and sat through a ridiculously long lecture on homosexuality in The Last September (I know it's there, but two and a half hours is a bit long for three lines of double-entendre - I spend at least three hours a day on the internet, for crying out loud, and I don't think I could have read enough gay into that book to talk for half an hour, let alone two and a half. o.O).
After I got home, I was more or less planning to spend the rest of the day reading a bunch of painfully boring journal articles...
...but they threw me a party! Sort of. Anyway they (mik100, dianahobart and dragonfly13) appeared, unexpected, and bearing gifts and everything! I got plants (a spider plant baby - Ariadne - and a Mum plant - Eydie) and a candle and chocolate and Chapters money and a half-finished scarf! And then we watched Lost and ate dinner and mik100 baked me a cake. I am very impressed by this. Apparently Kim masterminded the entire thing. I was halfway through pulling out my homework when the buzzer rang and hey, there they were! It was fun. I felt all special. :)
I mean, they made me wear sparkly boingy star antennae on my head when we went out for groceries, but still. ;)
Good birthday. And there is still cake. ^.^
EDIT: I am never going to get the glitter out of my hair. DAMN YOU ALL. :P
SLIGHTLY SNARKIER EDIT: Also, you will all be pleased to know that I did *not* see my shadow this morning. :P
LAST EDIT, I SWEAR: Two things. First, thank you to all the people who wished me Happy Birthday on LJ today! Second, can someone send me a complete track listing to the first CD of the Dexcon album? I left it long, long ago in rayinmyrra's car and I don't think I'm ever getting it back...
