Birthday Plans

I got home last night from Atlanta at about 10. Went to the store to get some Zantac to cure this awful heartburn and grab some Taco Bell for dinner (I know I know, doesn't make a lot of sense)

Even though I was exhausted, I still needed a couple of hours of not moving to relax myself before going to sleep.

So about 1am I go to bed. I woke up at 10am this morning to a call from my dad wishing me a happy birthday. I talked to my stepmom and she said I have a package coming. When I open it, I can take it two ways...but she said to take it as a joke. I'm concerned! :-)

I got a call from a friend of mine that I don't get to talk to nearly enough. Her and I worked together back in 2000 at the Marine Corps Exchange. We became great friends and still keep in touch. Her daughter is two years younger than me and went to the same high school as I did. So we spent the past hour catching up on all the gossip of the small town of 29 Palms!

Today I plan to go buy a printer/scanner. For two reasons...first, I'm going to start scanning all my pictures onto disk. I want backups and I want easy access. Second, I have a post in mind for today, kind of a blast from the past, but the pictures I have need to be scanned. So look forward to that tonight.

I also still have the Word of the Week to do for turophile. So you all have time to get those in by tonight!

I'm going to go see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! I have been greatly anticipating this movie! I would have seen it Friday night when it opened, but I was at the casino!

It's nice out today (just a little humid). I might go lay out and read a book before the storms get here!

And then tonight! The Birthday meal is going to be Confederate Fried Steak, Mashed Potatos and Mac n' Cheese! Haha, yea right, I'm not cooking! There's this great restaraunt here that makes these terrific southern meals and that's what I'm having! With Morrigan's brownies for dessert! I might throw in some vanilla bean ice cream with those too :-)

I have so much to write about and have to get these ideas out of my head soon before I forget them. So they'll be a lot of writing today. I might not all be published today (I'm not stupid), but there will be a lot of writing!

And hopefully tonight, I will be handing out a prize for my 10,000 hit! Talk about a lot of birthday spankings! We are 115 away!

So much to do and only 12 hours left of my birthday!! Gotta make it good!

Did you get your printer/ scanner? I gave myself a HP PSC all in one for Mother's Day. I LOVE IT!!! What a fun toy! And now I can play all those blog games that require embarassing photos from days gone by!
