And you smell like one too!

Today I got birthday presents!
Two items from my Amazon.com Wish List were delivered to my door:

The Watchmen Motion Comic DVD set
This was a Birthday Present from my little sister, Nettie, and her husband, Joe. I LOVE the Watchmen, worship Alan Moore, and really enjoyed the first chapter of the Motion Comic, which was made available for free on iTunes, so I was very excited for the chance to watch the other 11 chapters! Thank you both so much for this!

The Quotable Atheist:
Ammunition for Non-Believers, Political Junkies, Gadflies, and Those Generally Hell-Bound

This was a gift from my ex, [livejournal.com profile] beest. I added this one to my wishlist because it looked interesting. Quotes about atheism are useful for me in my writing, and I liked the title. Thank you, John!
Sorry this is a day late, Ashely... I got sidetracked yesterday with my own birthday!

Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday dear Ashely!
Yesterday turned out to be a much more delightful birthday than I could have hoped for!

The morning started with a visit from my friend and former neighbour Jahan, who came back up to town from Kirkland to pick up his bed. After we loaded his mattresses into his pickup truck, we hung out and watched Family Guy.

Then I discovered that my little sister, Nettie, who is currently serving a tour in Iraq, went on my Amazon.com Wish List and purchased the "Big and Tall" office chair that I have been needing badly (small office chairs hurt my knees). Thank you so much, Little Sister!

In the afternoon, I took the bus down to the Amtrak station to pick up Mom. She arrived on time, and was very happy to see me. I have to confess, I'm happy to see her, too! After picking up a rental car, we went and had a late lunch at Pelmeni. Then we got her checked into her hotel room.

We talked a bit about the tension between us lately. "I know you think I'm awful," she said. "Mom," I replied, "I don't think you're awful. I think you're wonderful. So we don't see eye-to-eye politically, and we bicker over email. So what? Sometimes, bickering's just a way for people who love each other to communicate!" She seemed delighted by my saying this.

After leaving her at her hotel to clean up after being on the train for 3 days, I went home and took care of some things. Then I went back to her hotel room to pick her up for dinner. I also showed her the Message for Obama book I was published in. I explained I did it for Nettie, and she seemed very pleased.

Then we went to the Cliff House for drinks and dinner. I was incredibly pleased by the turnout for my birthday dinner! Ted was there, and Richard and Brian, and Robert, and even [livejournal.com profile] man_of_snows and his partner Justin attended! It was like Faerie Coffee for dinner!

Dinner itself was wonderful. I had the Chicken & Dungeness Crab, and at the end of the meal, the restaurant brought out a HUGE complimentary sundae for me with a candle on it, while Ted serenaded me with a lovely birthday song. After making my wish (for financial security), i shared the sundae with everyone. It was a lot of fun, and I was stuffed! It was an expensive meal, and Mom paid for much of it... and I am grateful for it.

After getting Ted on the bus to go home, I took Mom back to her hotel, and then headed home myself, satisfied with a delightful day.

Thank you everyone who made me feel so loved on my 41st birthday!

Several people have asked me what I want for my birthday.

I would absolutely love an LJ gift subscription.

I've also updated my Amazon.com wish list (hint, hint) if you're so inclined...

Hey gang,

Woo hoo! It's [livejournal.com profile] baxil's birthday today! Have a happy one, o mighty dragon!
Forty years ago today, on March 23, 1968 at 15:15 Central Time at Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka, Kansas, I came into the world.

And the world's never been the same since.

Actually, I'm surprised I made it this far. I never expected to see 30, much less 40. But, every day I get out of bed, and say, "OK, I'm still alive," and keep going. Seems to be working!

For my birthday, the Captain took me to the Chuckanut Manor Bed & Breakfast out on Chuckanut Drive, over in Skagit County last weekend. It was wonderful. We sat on the balcony and looked out over the water (which you can see in the photo), ate yummy food, drank and smoked a lot, and had a blast in the Jacuzzi hot tub. It was *the best* birthday I ever had, bar none, and I have the Captain to thank for it.

He took the photo at right of me at the B&B, holding the pink umbrella he gave me for Valentine's Day.

For lunch today, he took me to my favourite Asian buffet. Yum!

What a great birthday!
