Well, happy belated birthday to me!

I just received a birthday present ... fresh from good old Amazon! I'm not sure why they insist on mailing things to me instead of just walking it over here from HQ ... but thanks to my brother irrationalrobot I'm now in happy possession of The Thorn Boy and Other Dreams of Dark Desire by Storm Constantine, which I've been wanting for what, five years now? I think I put it on my wish list when Amazon first came up with the concept ... It came with a copy of Robin McKinley's Beauty, which I was briefly worried I had bought for myself in my self-indulgent trip to Bookcloseouts.com, but happily it too was an unanticipated addition to my collection (I checked it against the list of books I've bought this year - which I'm keeping because I'm a geek).

I didn't mention yesterday that I received a horrible insult from a coworker, who asked if I got a tan over the weekend! "I thought you were Miss Ubergoth or something." God, can't a girl wear SPF 50 and at least get credit for trying? I was just happy I didn't burn!

Right now I'm whipping up some pasta salad for the folks who are coming over for games in the back yard ... and with luck I'll soon add sangria to the list of things ready to serve. Yum yum!
