Same dragon, different day.

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!

    Happy, Happy, Happy Belated Birthday Wren! The cookie dessert sounds decadent — yum! My drink of choice is Pomegranate Paradise at Jamba Juice, or for as long as I can remember, a classic Calistoga mineral water with a lemon twist has been pure bliss! The cozy/pampering theme of gifts sounds like a real treat. I’m so happy for you. 🙂

    Hmm, that sounds like a BJ’s! My sister’s favorite place to eat for years, may still be her favorite.

    Happy belated birthday! Sorry to be late, but there’s been a lot of falling apart in my neck of the woods.
