Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday greetings/ecards/tweets/wall comments, etc. It was great fun at John’s yesterday, checking on his computer every few hours for the various greetings. Wanted to share a couple of the fun things I received.
It wouldn’t be a birthday without some sort of treat from my dear friend Dave Wolfe. He created a Dark Shadows card for me this time, with some clever Photoshopping and funny verbiage. So here I am in a compromising position with my heart-throb, in THE LOST EPISODE:
Here’s the copy, since it’s hard to read:
LOL! I love you, Wolfie. Thank you.
And here’s a fun image I found yesterday on my Facebook wall (I’m reasonably discreet there, but people seem to know my proclivities anyway):
I’m not even a Star Wars fan, but this made me laugh. Particularly when a friend commented: “The Empire Strikes Backsides.” Thank you to the creator!
I wish I’d taken a picture of last night’s cake. They were out of German chocolate cake, so, since they had several shelves of wonderful-looking cakes and cupcakes and cookies and so forth, I asked the guy behind the counter to recommend a really good chocolate choice. He pointed out an enormous Bundt cake topped with thick frosting and large slabs of solid chocolate and said, “This is one of our best-sellers, our See’s Candy cake.” Oh, that’s all I needed to hear — y’all know how much I love See’s Candy. (It was either that or the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cake, but John doesn’t like peanut butter.) You should have seen the size of the hunk he put on the plate for us. I cut it in half and we had two normal-to-large pieces! I thought, I can’t eat all this. I just put away a plate of fettucini with grilled vegetables. But I ate every damn crumb of it. 😀
Birthday spanking tomorrow…
