speechless...

We had a very nice time at dinner... my bro, his sweetheart, my sis and bro in-law, and two other couples (jay & celine, kev and pat : my best RW friends...) all had dinner with us at a restaurant called the Royal Thai... it was nice... I'll post about that tomorrow... with some pictures...

But when I got home, Z handed me a bag... in that bag was some mail I had received earlier this week... but she kept it aside for when I celebrating birthday stuff... When I looked at this stuff... I was just blown away...

Ok, first was an adorable card from my good lj friend willedit
(click the pics for the full view).

Thanks Michelle... you are so very sweet for thinking of me, and *cough* sending the inserted, very nice picture card... :D

Then came a complete jaw dropper... two things from my amazon wish list... I don't know if I should name names so I'll wait till I talk to them... but holy moly guys... I'm just speechless.
A CD of the BNL ("Disc one") - click for full size...

This is just perfect... I now officially own some BNL... this one is going to work with me...

And... I mean, I was just talking to someone about this movie at dinner tonight... but someone got me...

(again, click that baby for the full pic) the fight club DVD...

This really made my day guys... hell, made a lot of things... mostly it really brought a lot of issues to a standstill to see such real spirit in friendships...

Oh... and for the humour of it all... my brother gave me a pair of 1.25 mag reading glasses... seeing as I'm ... well ... old, now.
Click me for my first "old man" face... :D

So we're about to leave for dinner last night... sis in law is here with her husband and their daughter... Amy (daughter) is baby sitting... and sis-I-L is driving... we're just about to leave...
"Oh wait... let me find my gloves... "

I'm searching all over the place... but to no avail... So Brother In Law comments... "It's pretty mild out... you won't need 'em". So we pile into their van, and as I'm buckling up my belt... I put my gloves down... Huh? "hey!" I say... "Have I had these in my hands the whole time?"

"Yup" say's B-I-L... then he and Sis-In-Law both turn to me, smile, and say ... "Welcome to 40!"

Yea... so basically, I'm gearing up to spend the rest of my life looking for things... :D

wearing
~ big green house coat...
~ yea... that's it...
planning
~ well, more clothes...

~ oh... our company rented the Corel Center ICE (Home of the Ottawa Senators) for three hours this afternoon... and it's our annual company "family skate day"... there's a hockey game from 1 - 2 and then family skate from 2 - 4 with a light dinner thing... so this is in the plans for today.
wishing
~ I knew who Stacy was... an Lj friend... but Stacy - honey? - I don't know your Lj name!!!!

I'm still in shock from the amazon gift thing... :D

It's been snowing to beat the band since late evening last night... there's a frigging TON!!! of snow out there... I have to suck it up (sore throat again) and shovel at some point today....
