bday

Birthday!

First off, thanks to all my friends who sent me special birthday greetings in their LJ blogs! I really, really appreciate it!

And thanks, Bren, for my cupcake. (I still love virtual gifts!) Cyber is best, as I'm avoiding the real thing right now! (smile)

More than 180 people wished me greetings over at Facebook this year -- and because of the way Timeline works (sigh), it was more difficult to go and 'Like' all of them (plus Thank each person, as I like to do). Facebook? I really want to respond to my bday greetings...

At Staff Meeting this morning the whole crew sang to me and gave me a card that everyone had signed. Plus we had a bunch of HEALTHY goodies -- which was exactly what I'd asked for. (Cheese, apple slices, grapes, almonds and mini-muffins. Perfect!)

And the day started with friend (and co-worker) Rich taking me to Starbucks for coffee! Nice.

I had a good day at work -- and Marilyn and I are actually back at the office right now. I need to get to work as soon as I finish this blog entry...

Donn did come in and we tackled a bunch of IT, which was great. Plus I did some website work. (Aside from staff meeting and communications meeting...)

This evening Marilyn took sister Sue and me to dinner (Mexican) -- and then to the show to see the movie "Lincoln." Great fun! Marilyn is always so GOOD to me on my bday! And sister Sue brought cards and a check (she really shouldn't be giving me money, as she can't afford it). My sisters are the BEST.

"Lincoln" is as amazing as we've all been hearing it is -- in fact, it was even better than I'd expected (and I had high expectations). I really feel Daniel Day-Lewis deserves the Academy Award for this role -- and the movie should win, as well. I'd discuss it in more detail, but I don't want to spoil for anyone! If you haven't seen it yet, you really should. I highly recommend it, even if you're not a history buff like Marilyn or me...

That's it for now! I'm going to get to WORK now!
