...another year older and all's well...
I got up a leetle early and it was raining and dreary-- my favorite. My paycheck had already been deposited early when I checked my account first thing.





Went to work in my new carnation red top which is the absolute best color for me. Wore my spike 5" Mary Jane platform pumps. Then there was the new yummy sparkly pair of earrings. I was so taken with them that I forgot to put on one of my ever-present cuffs. *dazzle*





Walked into the saltmine to find someone had festooned my cubicle with party streamers and a "happy birthday" swag. Someone brought cake and there were birthday cards. My boss called and sang happy birthday to me. I told her I'd like it better if she came to my cubicle and breathily sang "happy birthday, mr. president" whilst trying to put my eyes out with sequins a-poppin'. She played along. It was fun.

On the phones, no one cussed me out, acted like a jerk or hung up on me.





At some point in the day, I had an enormous epiphany-- something I knew would set many things to right. It was brilliant and simple. I couldn't wait to tell someone about it. Then I forgot it. But for a moment, it was be-yoo-ti-ful.





I showed off my earrings and the picture on my phone of teh puppehs got up in vinyl boots. Lots of friends called and said happy birthday. Lots of folks said so here and on Facebook and in email. Holly even sang Happy Birthday on my voicemail.





Got cards from some lovely people, and Christina sent me two-- both perfect. :)





After work I went for a drink with 5 coworkers. It was really sweet. We laughed and cut up. Some of the folks I work with now are some of the best people I've ever worked with-- I hope we'll stay friends.



Mom and Dad called and told me they love me. Mom said it was a beautiful day when I came into their lives. That was very sweet.





My college transcript arrived in the mail-- have been waiting for that for a very important reason.





Then on to a restaurant for dinner with more dear ones and then home to teh puppehs who were happy to see me just because.

It's nice to have a day when everything seems to go very right. It's really nice when that day happens to be your birthday.

This was a lovely birthday. Thanks to everyone who made it so special in ways big and small. :)
