b/g - in the library

So many things to be thankful for

Ok, first off, thank you savoytruffle and cordelianne - the two of you are minions of awesome delight, and your joy and thoughtfulness is much appreciated! And thank you brutti_ma_buoni  and entrenous88 for the totally adorable puppy-v-gifts!! They are awesome, and super cute, and I love them both (and Brutti, dogs are *always* appropriate).

And second, thank you to elizabuffy and gray_ghost andn Miranda for always being there and listening to my stupid crazy shit at a moments notice and just being your awesome awesome selves.

And third, thank you to every one of you who has sent their love and support and dropped a random "holy shit" or "right on" comment to me over the last month of ass-backward-crazy in my life! Seriously, I don't think I'd be this sane about dealing with all of the absolutely absurd crap without you guys, and your friendship and support means so much to me that it's practically unspeakable (and yet, here I am, trying to put it into words).

Finally, as much as I planned very little for this, my 35th (dear gods, really) birthday, it has been a really good birthday. It started, actually, on Friday morning, when my girl Vettie and her new fiance took me out to breakfast (where we ate things that were hideously bad for us -- i had stuffed french toast), and continued that night to her birthday dinner where I finally got to meet her friends over Korean BBQ and a ton of shochou (though the night got more out of hand after I left, apparently), and then continued even further at a Karoke party my girl Charisse planned for *all* of the Libras she knew. That was Friday night.

Today? Today I got woken up by a happy birthday song from my Mom, and had a conversation with her that made me smile, got to do a little laundry (clean!birthday!sheets = yay), had friends call me all day to check in and wish me happy happy, and got taken out to dinner by Maija and Jeff for good times, sexual innuendo, and scrumptious pasta.... and a dessert with a birthday candle in it.

I"m actually typing this right now with a grin on my face. Because despite the Collapse ), I have a grin on my face, great friends and great family, good school work and good life, good boy!housemate and good dog, and really?

I'm having a damn fine time, all in all.
