Special Stuff

This weekend I went off to Diva and Nags to celebrate her birthday with Amy and Sunshine (and the Man). Pandy couldn't be there, and we missed her, but we will see her again soon.

As usual, we laughed more than anyone in a 5-mile radius. Laughter IS the best medicine :) It is impossible to hang out with that lot and keep a straight face. I love 'em to bits.

I didn't take any pictures because I didn't take my camera, and I didn't take my camera because I knew Diva would want to exercise her brand new camera, but once she puts up one of her outstanding photo shows, I will link to it.


And then this morning I woke up to this:


A box of exciting goodies from Nikki all the way on the other side of the world!

It was a bright spot in my rainy day. I got:

Some dainty green earrings which make me feel thirsty because they look like grapes. A maze puzzle on a valentine heart. A smooth bar of the very excellent Dove orange spice dark chocolate. A pouch of 3 delicious Burt's Bees tinted/shimmering lip balms. Mmmmm, mintyyyyyy.

Oh, and a card entitled: Red Rover, Red Rover, send cute, financially stable, emotionally mature men right over!

(Ain't that the truth.)

You're right, laughter is the best medicine!

Nice goodies you got!

Olivia said...

Beenzzz - Dove is better than Green & Black's...


Nabeel - Happy Valentine's Day to you too. I am sure you and Sugarlips will have a good one.


Selba - You like it too? Dark choc is totally the best!


Prerona - it's a tiny maze game, which I am very good at now.


ML - I wish there were much more laughter in the world, don't you?

Oooohhhh....lovely Valentine's Day box!

Here in Japan it's the tradition for girls to give chocolate to boys on Valentine's Day. The boys then reciprocate on "White Day" one month later.

I wonder if I'll actually get anything from any of my students this year. That's usually a good barometer of my current popularity. Of course, my wife already gave me a big, velvety box full of Godiva chocolates, so I am NOT complaining! :-D

Minstrel - oh yes, that was what my Japanese friend told me when she was over last year.

Another mention of chocolate. Little do you all know the post I have prepared.


Pete - do you mean encouragable or incorrigible? And in respect to what?


Anony - ummmmm....Ooooh I dunno...!

A Porski?

Were you not sad to get rid of the H2K?

I have confused myself, lol, I'm not even sure which one I meant! Sometimes, ignoring me is very wise.

tooners said...

oh, the comments i could make about the "red rover".... but... since i'm married to a pretty cool guy, i'll keep them to myself! ;)

altho it's late, Happy Valentines!
