Ooh good ones!! Books, of course -- and cake. Hell, cake should be just understood.

And happy birthday, a little late. Smile

Whatever # I'm up to: Thai food.

A few of us here in Abq went to market the other day - the international market over on the other side of town: my concept of Nirvana. I got all sorts of good things to tide me over for weeks, for not much money re the usual grocery store. But.. point is, then we stopped at the May Cafe, a vietnamese place across the street. Love it...

I suppose that's #13.

Thanks for the good wishes, Jes. Never too late for those.

Hingehead, Yes! Puppies--playing or doing anything. In fact I'm making baby animals No. 12 on my list.

And for No. 13, homemade chicken soup.

..9. Birthdays (mine is today) and the annual birthday wish when you blow the candles out.


Happy birthday, Roberta! Very Happy
(I'm so sorry to be late with my greetings. I just found this.)
May the next year be a vast improvement on the one just gone!
How did you celebrate the big day?

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Almost anything would be an improvement over the past year and a half.

I had a lovely dinner at one of my favorite restaurants with my best friend. I had a grand time. We asked for cake with a candle in it. The entire staff and owner of the place gathered to sing me "Happy Birthday." I know that some people hate that sort of thing. I'm not one of them. I loved it. There were two candles. I made my wish, which I had given much thought to, and blew out the candles. Applause.

When I got home, I found that another friend had dropped off a beautiful planter of asters. Vibrant autumn colors. A wonderful surprise.

I'm going out for another celebration on Tuesday.

... that you're thankful for.



1)Dental floss
2)The glockenspiel (maybe it's just those nifty sticks I can whack people over the head with)
3)Diet chocolate soda
4)Headphones
5)Open MRIs
6)The remote control gizmo
7)Elevators
8)The approach of winter
9)Weeping willow trees (okay, so I'm weird)
10)Just about everything and anything...even if I don't particularly like something, I at least have the option of steering clear of most of it. The stuff which can't be avoided is just more fuel towards being eerily happy about the other stuff.

I was listening to Goldfinger's rendition of '99 Luftballons' and it has this 4 second bit where the open hi hats just work sooooo well.
