On my way back to town from a home visit yesterday, an odd thing happened. The home I was visiting is about 1.5 miles from the Texas border and a bit out of the way of the radio station I usually listen to. There's one spot in the road where I always lose reception and two stations come in at one time. When I left the home visit yesterday, Bob Dylan's "Knocking on Heaven's Door" was playing, but when I got to that spot in the road, a song by Hootie and the Blowfish started coming in, too (can't remember which song). So I got tickled...I was either listening to Hootie Dylan or Bob and the Blowfish. HAHAHAHA I know, I know. I'm goofy as hell, but I keep myself entertained.
OK, my very first diary entry. I know, I know, what took so long? Now just seems to be the time to do this. When I logged in to ET yesterday, I had 23 messages, most of them Happy Birthday wishes. Then I got several more throughout the day. I had people from all over the globe and from all walks of life wishing me a special day....and it touched my heart. I have some of the sweetest, dearest friends here. I love them all. [nathie] sent me a virtual chocolate cake with my name on it. [kiradraco] accidentally wrapped herself in bows and tape trying to wrap my virtual gift (thanks again, lil sis. hope the hair grows back), some wrote poems, some sent hugs and kisses. [The Sadist] and [Witchyra] sang the birthday song to me. [Rye] sang as well, but added a few choice words that made me giggle (Nathie, you were involved in that little tune. [Hey! Tomorrow is your birthday :) Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, you are a sexy bitch, and Nathie's one too! Have a good one] Mwahahahaha). Most notably, Arwen got sweet birthday greetings from [Sauron]....J.R.R. Tolkein is rolling over in his grave. hehehe They all made it a very memorable day. Princess TUNG is grinning from ear to ear.
