Happy Me Day

May Second. I love this day. It's my birthday.
This morning Cranky unloaded a most unexpected gift on me, while I was still in bed.
It was a selection of fabulous Heath ceramics. A few weeks ago, I had drooled over these pale blue items, in all permutations. Cranky got all the permutations, the loveable lug. Wow.
Even better, this morning's New York Times is emblazoned "May 2, 2010." My birthday! I love when that happens. AND, in the "T" magazine (if you get the print edition at all; this didn't seem to show up on line), there's a cool suggestion for what would be a fabulous Heath giftie, and I already got mine! Very same thing.
Neat vase in retro colors. Picks up nicely on a blue theme that's been going through our house. Plus those jaunty swipes of contrasting colors.
I drool.
I am having a most happy day.

I got to the third line and I thought I had clicked on a porn site.

Happy Birthday Old Angry One, may you have many more.

Thank you, all! (Shameless grubbing for good wishes ends now.) It was a happy day indeed.
Chilebrown, you are funny. We're too old for that.

sorry

kudzu said...

What wonderful gifts! Do you rent Cranky out as a consultant to clueless husbands?

cookiecrumb said...

Lannae: Thanks, loyal buddy!

Biggles: We were gonna go get offal at Incanto, but bailed, due to champagne at home. Had nice tortilla casserole from the fridge.

Sally: Merci. Couldn't edit; too cute. xx

Kudzu: I know! Isn't he remarkable? I didn't even remember that I wanted these things. Zow.

Rev. Biggles said...

Ya know, I think I would have chosen the latter as well. Not because of my disinterest in the fancy offal, but because I like it at home better. Cozy love without other people bothering me. And, being able to pee in your own toilet is priceless.

xo, Biggles

cookiecrumb said...

Biggles: So totally.
Pot pie for you soon. No peeing.

Katie said...
