Happy Birthday Boida!


I hope this year is much easier than last. Wishing you copious egg cremes and dogs!

Thanks for catching the date, Dlowan.

Roberta! I'm sending you and endless supply of pudding parfaits or decadent chocolatey good things of your choice.

@ehBeth,
Deb, You've outdone yourself. Egg creams and dogs singing. Who could ask for more? Well, I could, but I'm a greedy bitch. BTW, I don't exactly follow the egg cream instructions, but mine comes out good.

osso, Crushed that you didn't call me Robbie. Is that a first? Uncrushed by the surfeit of chocolate. Slurp.

Mercy bow coo, jes and dj. I love dem birthdays.

Bethie, Look at dem dawgs. I miss my girls. But I love the pic. Thanks mucho.

This afternoon I had a meeting with my social worker. We were supposed to talk finance. She showed up with a dozen, white long-stemmed roses and a chocolate fancy shmancy cake. Also a card signed by everyone I know at the agency. I was thrilled. I asked if this is how all the clients were treated on their birthday. Nope. So far, just me. ??????

Tomorrow, my actual birthday, Sheila and I are going to our favorite Italian restaurant. Her birthday was a week and a half ago. I bring two candles.

Next week I'm having lunch with Sue (semiotterly). Her birthday was last week.

I love dem birthdays. And I treasure my birthday wish. One of the few official wishes we get. I've got two wishes lined up. One for the candle I put in the fancy shmancy cake and one for tomorrow with Sheila. Like I said, I'm a greedy bitch--but lovable.

EdgarBlythe (he's the good looking one on the right) is busying fighting ninjas over on Facebook. He sends his timely regards and warm wishes for today.

He told me to give you an assortment of pastries...

@Roberta,
Robbie! I have thought I probably use that too much and work to be more temperate (you know how enthusiastic I can get). I'll stop with the temperance already!

Fondness to Sheila whom I've not met but admire and Hugs to Sue from me.

Your social worker is nonpareil.

@margo,
Thanks for all the good wishes, you guys.

This is me we're talking about. Sigh.

Tuesday evening I was sitting on the couch watching tv. My eyes were itchy and my nose was running. Yes, an allergic reaction to the roses, but one I could live with.

Later Tuesday evening, I lit a candle and stuck it in the fancy shmancy cake. Made my wish and blew. The cake was phenomenal. Chocolate mousse with a citrus center. There were crumbs along the outer bottom edge. I thought they were chocolate. Nope. Nuts. I'm allergic to nuts. I ate only a few. I got sick. Not major mega sick, but sick enough. Barfing. Running. Stomach pain.

Wednesday. My birthday. I spent most of the day either in the bathroom or in bed. So much for dinner out. We'll try again.

I got a few more presents. No chance for an allergic reation--two checks and some books. (Love dem checks.)

I was too busy barfing to throw in some dirty words. I'm gonna go mutter some now. And I've been doing enough muttering about a nightmare job I'm doing. Sigh. I'm gonna get paid. Another check.

@wandeljw,
wandel, If I wasn't kvetching, then you'd think I was REALLY sick.

Just found out that the editing job from hell is being added to. The other editor got sick. I don't buy it. The other editor gave up and ran screaming into the night. I can't run anywhere. A bigger check.

@Roberta,
I had the delayed dinner with Sheila earlier this evening. Delish.

I had prosciutto (sp?) and melon and shrimp scampi. For dessert I had tiramisu (sp?). Heavenly. Sheila is a good kid.
