Birthday Spankins

Thank you all so much for all the well wishes and thoughts about my b-day post. And thank everyone who kept Wendy in your thoughts and prayers. If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times -- the people who read my blog are the best. Even if you don't have blogs for me to link to I think you're awesome and I would totally stalk you if I knew who and where you are!

So, I was completely spoiled yesterday. Kristin got me Damien Rice's "O" and Jack Johnson's second to newest CD. And some clothes. And a cake the flowers upon which made my poop green. So I guess that means that she gave me green poop, too. And, though it wasn't planned this way, I also got a new camera phone. So as soon as I figure it out you'll all reap the rewards of my spy capabilities. Also, every single member of my family each gave me a gift certificate to B&N. Which was pretty damn funny. I'm thinking if I can wait for Lauri's immanent second visit maybe I can get her to take me so she can share her discount. I LOVE gift cards. They're goods and entertainment all wrapped up in one because I can spend HOURS shopping. And when you're shopping with someone else's money how much more fun that is!

And, finally, Lauri sent me a poem that she wrote just for me!!! And I thought I'd share it with you.

I have a friend Trista
And I've really missed her :(
Today is her birthday
Hip, hip (hip hip) hooray!

Trista likes dogs
And Krisin likes frogs
At the Jasmine they'll eat
For Ts birthday treat!

She wants me to let you all know that for the rhyme to work properly while reading aloud (which, of course, you've all already done, haven't you?) you need to pronouce "missed her" like "mista". But I bet you all already knew that, didn't you. In fact you probably just did that naturally to make the whole thing work, didn't you? Of course you did.

Actually, I went into this total British accent in my head and pronounced your name "Trister" so that it rhymed. I sowwy. :)

The word "spankins" is funny. It makes me think of pancakes, and also loot (as in, pirate's loot). There is no real reason why it makes me think of those things. But I thought you should know.

Once, my sister and I got 32 oz. blue raspberry slurpies. I couldn't finish mine (I was eight, she was ten) and she finished it for me. Later, she pooped green and made me come into the bathroom to look at it. She thought she was sick. Poor girl. Never drank a blue raspberry slurpie again. But don't tell her I told you.
