Happy (My) Birthday
Well, I'm 32 today. One of my favorite numbers.

brendand left me the sweetest card and a gift on the kitchen table. I also opened some gifts family friends had sent me and am thus wearing my brand new birthday black cashmere sweater. Mum and dad are coming over tonight and also a couple friends for dinner and maybe a game or two. I wasn't in the mood for something elaborate. Missing Bill a lot (he'll be home in about a week, looks like).

I've gotten a lot of well wishes so far and I appreciate them all. Thank you, for your thoughts and your friendship.

My parents used to always ask me to supply them with a list of things I want, so I created an amazon wish list a while back. I'm not really in much of a wanting things mood, except that I'm feeling a bit sick of the music I currently have. I'm also feeling like I should really get an aftermarket 6-cd changer for my car. It would make me so much happier, I think. I had one in my last car and I miss it. And I always need more black socks (crew length, preferably relatively thin dress socks). I just added some to my wish list.

Happy birthday! At least this is the last bit (100000) you'll pick up for quite a while ;-)

Happy birthday!

(I've never seen anyone actually ask for socks as a present before! ;-)

I routinely ask for underwear... It's something I need and will use and is affordable for the giver. And I prefer it to scented soap or perfume, which some relatives give with far too great a frequency.

Hmmmm. Not sure we're the same size.

Oh, or were you talking about the relatives?

I guess I'm half-hoping someone might get me a sock subscription (although since they only carry men's sizes, I'd need a small). :)

I'm getting rid of some CDs. I can bring a little stack to class next week and you can see if there's anything you want.

come to think of it, Bill has a huge collection of Mp3s on his computer that I have largely not explored...

Happy B-day Twin! I've been thinking of you all day and wondering if you got to eat cake. I didn't have any cake. I had cramps. Ugh. Basically, I sat around and watched movies all day yesterday. I do get a little mopey and prosaic on my birthday. It's thinking of all the things I haven't done that I thought I would have by now. Anyway, don't mean to bring you down. Sending lots of love your way.

I usually buy plain black socks for myself, but I could not resist funky socks I found in San Franscisco earlier this year - http://sockmarket.com/cgi-local/surfshop/shop.cgi?categories=1000-002&c=/search/search.socks.knee.htm&t=main.htm&storeid=1

Oops - I forgot my name didn't appear anywhere...it's Donna. :-)

I guess the only real picture I have on my LJ is this one from Halloween
http://curvygoodness.livejournal.com/2630.html and I don't really look like my "normal" self.

Welcome to this part of LJ. I've been missing you. becoming_writer, murphyw, and vaxjedi are other Grinnellians you probably remember (and there are lots out there, but I'll stop there.)
