So. Today is my birthday. Which has kind of been celebrated yesterday and today and inevitably will be all weekend and possibly into the rest of the month because why not? 😀
Yesterday was the “company party,” which was a lot of fun because when I’m in the middle of troubleshooting CSS and I have my headphones in I pay attention to literally nothing else. People have come up to me and been speaking, and then I look up after five minutes, pull out an earbud, and say “I’m sorry, what?”
So you can imagine the mild heart attack I had when, out of nowhere, people surrounded my computer, bearing cupcakes and flowers, singing “Happy Birthday.”
After that, I might have run around the kitchen and living room bursting with the SHEER JOY of getting FLOWERS AND CUPCAKES.
Really. It was awesome.
Tonight’s a birthday dinner and I’m having an actual “party” tomorrow, which is a party insofar as a bunch of people will be at my house for dinner and MST3K. Because I have a special place in my geeky little heart for terrible movies, Mike, Joel, and the ‘bots.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Friday and an excellent August!
