It's Mah Birfdaaaaaaaaaaay!!!

Today, she is mah birfday. So this morning, I woke up and made birfday scones.

It's been a lovely day. In my book, birthdays aren't about getting things or giving things, but about feeling special. One should be made to feel special on one's birthday, which may or may not involve presents. I tend to shower my boyfriend, who shall remain nameless, with food on his birthday - either elaborately prepared at home or elegantly purchased at some schmancy restaurant. This year, I received several very thoughtful presents, and was made to feel very special through a combination of phone calls, a Facebook blitzkrieg of "happy birthday" wall posts and a lovely evening at home.

My boyfriend, who shall remain nameless, made me fried spiced beef with bacony ranch asparagus (or, "how to make asparagus bad for you"). The beef is actually a traditional Italian recipe that dates back to the Venetian spice trade...or something. I'll look it up for you when I can move again. I can't move, cuz then my roommates made QUADRUPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE!!! Uuuuuuuuuugh, so good, can't move! They also bought me a bag of Starbucks French roast that's bigger than my head. It's so beautiful. I'm just glad a sack of coffee that large exists. God bless Costco, and God bless Brad and Carrie! :-D

Anyway. I've had a day, a wonderful day, and it's not over. I'm going to go now. TA!!! *flits off into the Springtime*
