I'm thirty today, and Mark gave me a mystery gift. Betcha can't guess what this is!
Surprise! Tis a SHOVEL! I KNOW! I figured I'd just
tell you so you weren't up all night trying to figure it out.
In return, I gave him a concussion.
There is a story to the shovel, and it so very obviously involves me. Being smug and assholey during a blizzard. Like, "oh, I'd love to help you shovel the foot of snow, but we only have one shovel. So good luck with that I'll see you when you are done I will be on my computer dicking around on the Internet, bai."
Saturday, I lounged around the house. I was so lazy that it was an accomplishment for me to put on a bra and take a shower. I'm a trophy wife, you see, so it is important for me to...bathe. And bra. I may have brushed my teeth but I'm not sure. It is obvious now that I am incredibly sexy. Don't let your husbands (or partners!) read this because they will all be very jealous and will expect equally high standards and maintaining all THIS is very difficult. I do not want to burden you.
But anyway, it turns out that Mark had a surprise planned for me, and he told me later that he was really glad that I took a shower.
HA! How sad.
So my best friend came with her husband and two big bags of Tokyo House. Surprise!! I don't think I've talked much about Tokyo House (except once, here) but it is delicious and deserves its own post. Maybe I will get around to it before I am forty. I don't know. But it is Japanese food like none other and I ate enough to stuff a moose. It was OK because I was wearing pajamas and so my belly was incredibly stretchy. And it is so far away and such a long wait for a table, I only get to go once a year if I'm lucky. Perfect birthday surprise!
It was fun. AND there was cake!
It's my party, and I'll eat 75% of this cake if I want to.
(I wanted to.)
My other birthday gift is a nook, which is the perfect gift! But it is on back order and won't come until mid-February. Which is fine, because I will be so busy enjoying my shovel that I won't have time to read until then anyway.
Then? After I get my nook? And it snows? Mark will be able to shovel the driveway much faster now that he will have a shovel for each hand!
