Lovely bird, the Norwegian blue. Beautiful plumage

(apologies to karen for jacking her entry format.)

A week before my birthday, my mother sent to me:

A pair of lovely reproduction freshwater pearl earrings from the Winterthur collection

Two charming posable jointed wooden lizards

A check for a hundred smackers that is NOT going into savings

A tiny playable xylophone keychain just like the Fisher-Price toy

A copy of her living will

The antique stuffed hummingbird in a nest pictured below.

All in all, a suitably cryptic and colorful birthday package, no?

When is your actual birthday? Perhaps a long lunch (hic') is in order? I promise I will not make you the lentil walnut veggie burgers that actually had Ross (the boy who devours sushi) in tears at dinner tonight...

Lentil walnut veggie burgers? That actually sounds kind of good.

It's June 13th. I'm taking the day off. I have no real plans for the day, I just know I heven't done anything to deserve having to work on my birthday.

Don't ask me how old I will be. I am planning on starting to be creative about that, since I don't look/feel/act my age.
