      You are such a doll.

      And I’m so ordering that Tshirt, thanks for the link.

      I could easily go back to childhood right now. Easily. It’s been another week from hell. I appreciate your thoughts. Love you.

      Mmmm – my gift is not kitty-related. And you’d know that if it EVER got to you ; ) Tomorrow – at your home, I believe.

    2. 1. Someday I’ll get my miraculous creative gift-giving sense back, and not have to use money to bail me out of a desparate birthday situation. You’re welcome. 😉

      2. Did you notice that your book list sort of reads like the “ordering videos” scene in _Clerks_? I have to wonder about a 5th-grader walking around with a copy of your book list:

      “Whatcha reading, honey?”

      Can I add a book to your list for the fifth grader to grab? Any and all of Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpannts series – oh my God they are just soooo silly and funny and guaranteed to make you miss being ten years old.
      Mmm, enjoy that massage, my sweet. And the pottery class? What a dear man, whether he believes it or not.
      I want to say more, but I am too beat from work to be coherent.
      Love,
