This is a happy, stuffed, tired, spoiled Kit. I got home from work and was whisked off to a delicious dinner out at an extravagant local resturaunt, then treated to an ice cream sunday at a very good creamery. After thoroughly spoiling me, ACat demanded to know what I wanted for my birthday (what, MORE?) and I hemmed and hawed and finally took him up on it. We've wanted a Tivo for a while, and now we have one - a bit extravagant, but hell, gadgets are fun! (And we keep forgetting the shows we actually want to watch when it's the right time for them!)
We got home and he started fiddling with that, while I took care of email and talked to my father, who wanted to wish me a Happy Birthday. (My mom actually visited this last Saturday night, on her way home to Arkansas, so she did her wishes and gifting then. Mom does neat gifts - I got a gorgeous, handpainted box with a leopard kitten on it, and it was filled with about six feet of a bean-stuffed boa constrictor!) Just after I hung up with dad, quadrivium
called to wish me a happy birthday and talk a little, which got big smiles as well.
So, now I'm catching up on LJ, listening to ACat be frustrated with Tivo's phone menus, and plotting to pounce him just as soon as he gets to a good stopping point.
Don't tell him. >:)
