Nothing much accomplished for today. I slept in a bit, but then was awoken by the cats at seven. It's weird. On days off from work, I still get up early (before 10 or a little after, but usually before). We did pick up my birthday cake, though. It's purrty! I'm going to take some pictures. Blue, purple, and green coloring on the sides and blue, purple, and green ribbon on top. My mom knows my love for Heroes
, of course, so she suggested that I get this on my cake: "Happy 27th birthday to our hero." :D I love my mom! I received a birthday card from her and Dad today after I got home from roleplaying with brokenbacktango
, Reggie, Reggie's friend Mike (a very cute geek, by the way), and Jeff. The envelope is great! It had all of my nicknames growing up written on it. I had A LOT of nicknames growing up. The card itself was Captain Jack Sparrow. Yay for pirates! No presents yet from my parents, but they wrote down what I will be getting. One of those things is the Peter Petrelli figure!! *lots of squees* But under "Peter Petrelli" was written "Nathan Petrelli" which makes me happier all the more. I'm very pleased that my parents know that I like him a bit more. But with out there being a Nathan figure in the first run, I'll take the Peter figure.
Friday, after work, I'll be in LA for a lot of the day. Going to a restaurant with brokenbacktango
, and sarumann
, perhaps scififreak
, and Stephanie, my former prof. It's the same restaurant that make_me_shiny
and me to last year.
Koji's Sushi and Shabu Shabu. SOOOO good! I really like the shabu shabu hot pot. I had so much fun cooking my food in it. Before dinner, brokenbacktango
and I will probably wander around LA a little bit.
It's going to be a good birthday. :D And maybe I can actually get some writing and reading done, too!
Speaking of reading, I need some good fic recs. Wanna read some good gen Petrelli fics, or Petrellicest fics. Makes no difference to me. I also like Wee Petrelli stuff, too. Just want something good and preferably happy. I need to make my way through thepandorarose
's and mystery_sock
's works, but those are epic. I'm thinking more one-shots that aren't part of series, or are just short.
A big thank you to everybody on MySpace who has wished me a happy birthday! Thank you, ilikethequiet
for the awesome icons! Thank you, thank you to eriksavatar
(and to Peter *S*) for the delicious chocolate cupcake. Gonna see if brokenbacktango
wants to go to Spinkles
. And if we go, totally will be thinking of you. Thank you very much, kefira
, for the fireworks and the sparklies!! :D Very sweet of you.
Man...so I just deleted a few icons and I'm down to 130/143. I need some more icons! *L*
