T’was my birthday on Oct. 25th, but since the Big Day had the bad taste to fall on a Tuesday we pushed the celebration to the weekend.
So on Saturday night, my family (plus me) met up at a favorite brewhouse-style restaurant for a tasty, high calorie, high fat, high carb, sinful and delicious meal in honor of my successfully having lived through 54 years. I had a giant order of fish n’chips and drank a pomegranate margarita, my first booze since my last birthday. I was a bit tipsy by the time the glass was empty. The stand-in for a birthday cake was a lit candle stuck into the scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a freshly baked, still-warm chocolate chip cookie.
It was divine.
Gift-wise, it was a particularly girlie sort of birthday. To whit: I am now in proud possession of a free manicure, a free pedicure and a brand new pair of pajamas, the pants-part of which are leopard-patterned. Meowrrrr.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
