Yesterday was a GREAT day. Couldn't have asked for anything more. After work I walked home and took the more scenic way through Central Park because the weather recently has been so nice (today it is going to be 80 degrees).
When I arrived home I was greeted by Patrick and kitty themed birthday surprises. Pat had a youtube video of a kitten singing happy birthday playing on the TV. He had a video playing of our hairless kitten on my computer along with the receipt of our down payment for it. He had cat patterned helium balloons and 3 gifts.
I was super surprised because I was not expecting ANYTHING because of my outrageously expensive birthday gift.
The birthday gifts included 2 vintage cameras. I love old cameras. I guess one would say I "collect" them, but it's not intentional. Every time I see one at a thrift store I just have to buy it even though I don't know how to use them or even know if they work.
Then the best gift of all was a letter from Patrick. I love letters from Pat and often suggest the economical gift of writing each other love letters. I love these more than any other gift, and this birthday letter Pat wrote me topped everything I received (this probably does not make Pat happy knowing he bought me a $1000 cat).
During the day my great friend Joanna texted me and asked me what kind of birthday cake I wanted her to make me. Instead of a cake I asked her to make me her famous brownies. These brownies are like NOTHING you have ever tasted--they are INCREDIBLE. That night she brought them by, and let me tell you, they were the best they have ever been! I had three before dinner.
For dinner and I decided to stay in and order Papa Johns Pizza (lame I know but so so good) and watch Dancing with the Stars. I have never seen a full episode but I saw the previews that they were having New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys and Hanson perform. HOW COULD I MISS THAT!!!?!?!? After all, I did get voted biggest Teenybopper in High School (unfortunately I misunderstood and only Hanson performed last night and NKOB and Backstreet Boys are performing tonight).
