A real nice clam bake

So we didn’t bake clams, but we had a real nice time. I felt like Queen for a Day.

Last Sunday, my family threw a combined birthday party for the Thriller and me (our birthdays are a month apart). The best part, of course, was having everyone at the house at the same time. Mavis cooked a wonderful feast for about 15 family and friends, and the kids wouldn’t let us clean up afterwards.

Thoughtful gifts were given to both of us. From clothing to homemade items to gift cards to household and office needs — they were the greatest. Then the Thriller threw me a curve ball and presented me with the netbook I’d been lusting after. (He is ozzum indeed.)

After the younger generation left for the day, the Old Ones remained around the dinner table. We laughed and goofed off for a good couple of hours. It was a great day.

Now I get to spend the day with Justin and Jake, then the rest of the week at school. It begins…

    It was a wonderful day, indeed! I especially enjoyed sitting around the table with all of you old people and goofing off. You didn’t make me feel old at all! You allowed me to fit right in! :p~~~~~~~~~

      Well lady, I would highly recommend a netbook (unless you want to run, like, Pyware on it or something). I took it to Detroit last Sunday to test-drive it. Fantastico! I’m going to download Open Office on it too, so I can do Word docs. So lightweight and easy to schlep — nothing like my old laptop, or even my Mac Book Pro — which is pretty large as well.

      The little avatar face next to your name probably represents your real feelings much more accurately than your words, Maelea. HA
