Monday was Kynny's birthday. Always comforting that someone who acts so childish is still older than me, if only by a smidge. ;)
Tuesday was Freddy's birthday. Still haven't seen him to give him his present. Always comforting that someone who acts so childish is in fact younger than me. :D
Wednesday was my fabulous brother-in-law Clint's 40th birthday. I'm fairly certain he doesn't read this, and has been swamped by Furniture Market week, so I'm happy that my sister is throwing a surprise party for him tonight. That's awesome. I sent card and present intentionally late so he should receive them tomorrow after the shindig.
Thursday we eschewed music practice for a nice dinner out with Lisette before she has to leave for Florida for work for 4 months. So sad. But dinner at Baldwin Station in Sykesville was very fun, very tasty, and we got a room to ourselves all night, which was fun. Oh and the room had great acoustics for when we randomly broke into song. The chocolate cake for dessert was faboo, but the unexpected favorite of the night was the sticky-bun ice cream.
We also celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Laureling of the Angel of Death. Lisette had conspired with Bob and had a lovely framed set of pictures spanning the AoD's career. Twas beautifully done. There were tears all around the table, especially from the red heads.
It's almost official, Roxbury's Night on the Town made money. Actually pulled out a profit!!! $28, but profit is profit, considering the odds the event was up against. :)
Tonight and this weekend look to be relaxing, some cooking with Wendy and Tara tomorrow, hopefully some girlie movie watching, some sewing, and in general hanging out and staying inside away from the droopy weather predicted.
And now for some stoopid quizzes...
You are a Brainy Girl! Whether you're an official student or a casual learner, you enjoy hitting the books.
You know a little bit about everything, and you're always dying to know more.
For a guy to win your heart, he's got to share some of your intellectual interests.
A awesome book collection of his own doesn't hurt either!
Amazing praise considering the brainiacs I hang out with...
You scored 3 Honor, 5 Justice, 9 Adventure, and 6 Individuality!
Well pardner, the thing that drives you is a sense of adventure. You're willing to play by the rules, but only so long as you've got open territory to cover and new frontiers to explore. You don't need much and you don't ask much.
Strap on your six gun and wear your Stetson proud. I think you'll do just fine
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

35, just about one third, and that makes me apparently slightly less decadent that K, or more so in the home and less so in the travel... Interesting.
