Nothing too bitchy from me today.
*rolls eyes* No, I’m not sick… or hungover *glaring in the vague direction of Holland*. I’m still riding the
gloat glow of my birthday spoilage.
Yes, it’s true that I shamelessly pimped my birthday to everyone. There was, however, a reason for this and this was quite clearly for THE LOOT!!
Sure I feel loved, blah, blah**, but, let’s face it, it was always about how much I could guilt people into giving me because they either (a) for whatever reason genuinely like me or (b) didn’t want me to look like a totally friendless loser. I’m pretty sure that it was the latter that won the day.
Anyway, on to the bragging…
You’ve all seen my flowers from Tam, which amazingly continue to survive despite longing, albeit calculating, looks 50+ times a day from the boy kittens. (I’ve tried to take a photo of them doing this, but for some reason they now run off whenever I catch them eyeing the flowers. Wusses!)
I received some vouchers to a couple of great stores which will help me replace the stuff the boy kittens have destroyed over the last 12 months. (Evil bastards!)
I also got this which tells me when it’s time for me to be fabulous. Nothing like positive reinforcement. (This was from the Mumma, who seems to think that my ego is nowhere near to what it should be. Go figure.)
The best part… MY B’DAY BOOK LOOT!!
I was positively spoilt for ARe Bucks from a Redheaded-Cali-Butt-Lover and a Misguided-Jake-Fan-From-Leeds.
As for the books themselves… Lookee!
The second book in the series has been removed from this line up in order to save you from the gouging of the eyes. (K Z, I thought you might have been overstating the ugliness. You weren’t.)
The graphic novels came from the Mumma, The Draegan Lords from Wave and M L, and the yaoi from Ingrid. (I’m not sure if the yaoi was meant to be for my b’day or whether it’s part of The Great Yaoi Swap. Proximity, however, means it counts as a pressie.)
O_O Agatha Christie graphic novels! Very cool.
Close up of my signed copy of The Draegan Lords and other goodies. (Mwahahahaha!)
Oh, I almost forgot.
Last, but by no means least, I truly felt the b’day love when I received the below cookie crumb from the infamous Ms Castanet Feldman.
See. She does so like me.
**Smooches to all those who dropped by with wishes and, more importantly (it’s all about priority, people), gave me cards and pressies. I lubs youse. *sniffles*
