Because Im a gretty groupie

Im going to convert this thursday thirteen to a tuesday twelve sheerly out of love for the gret Twelve things (ok yeah i could come up with thirteen but its gretty here and good groupies are consistent groupies) Im extremely happy about this week. Warning the list will include but not be limited to the fantastic and surprisingly low key birthday i had yesterday.

1. The best birthday present I think Ive ever gotten. (courtesy of my artiste friend gretty)
(Bear with my sorry attempts to capture this on film)

2. Gill got me a snazzy new printer/copier/scanner/fax machine HOOKED UP RIGHT TO MY LAPTOP! Now all i need is the catheter and ill never leave this chair again.

3. Kickball season starts wednesday and I set my first official work boundary by rescheduling my supervision group despite the fact that not every single person could be accomodated. Usually I would apologize profusely and/or sacrifice my own plans to do the group but with the support and encouragement of madame fabu (just one of the many reasons she has this name!) I did not do this and people are going to have to deal with it. Go me!

4. The lusciously lovely Luckybuzz sent me this and I clearly need to add it to my page somehow.

5. LB and her husband the gorgeously goofy Gospel Bob as well as several other people including my little facebook contingency ( Terrifically tantalizing Trix! My own spider monkey song! You have no idea what that means to me!) made special birthday wishes that melted my heart and made me happy! (gospel bob, i hope you are blog stalking me. If you aren't its ok. Ill just pretend you are silently stalking and not leaving comments!)

6. Best birthday song performance goes out to Lucy and the Lucettes(the adorable little moppets that are my nieces) for the birthday song message of a lifetime. You guys are all rockstars!

7. Going to the crawford county fair with the Fabus this weekend! (note to Lucy, playing "there's your boyfriend/girlfriend" in Crawford County is like playing it at Rogers. Its just too damn easy)

8. Whenever Im down?

I simply cross dress my baby and life just feels better*

9. We are in the midst of another wave of birthdays. Yesterday, was also my dearest friend and birthday buddy C-no's fortieth birthday. Our friend Lainie is on the 26th. Luckybuzz is the 31st. My oldest little adorable moppet/niece (who needs a good nickname) is September 1st, both Gospel Bob and the fabulously beautiful and brilliant Feather share September 14th, and Princess Fabu and my cousin Larry are the 15th. Bring on da noise bring on da ugly season!

10. Im still making my bed.

11. Ive spun most of my fall schedules into a believable set of lies. (again go me!)

12. Awww! Just when I was struggling for number 12 my brother just called to wish me a happy birthday! As the guy with the tangerine lipgloss says "Im one lucky gal".

Thanks for indulging me friends.

*Note: in my defense, he actually chose the outfit himself. (also you can see parts of princess fabu in the background if you look carefully!)

Ash said...

Dude, it's your birthday? Better pick up the phone when I call or I will sing the enitre birthday song on your voicemail!

RockDog said...

luckybuzz said...

Yep--the Snow White Turnip might become my happy place picture too. :)

And I LOVE the photos! Gret is amazing. And your boys are absurdly beautiful. :)

Gospel Bob said...

I second the sentiments! That sounds like one of the best birthdays ever and you deserve it! I wish I was closer to your bushes though. Stalking just doesn't feel as dangerous this way.

Two big "Oh my Gods" to the Gretty gift and the twinkletoed turnip!

Aww bunny- She does! She really does! Sept 6 is next Thursday. Consider yourself added!

Gretty- (in the same vein as the gretty musical) Well thats how much I feel...feel for you baby...

Maggie May- Thank you! It has the dual purpose of making sure that eventually my lawn gets mowed for the rest of his life too. Or he will be a cross dresser. Either will be fine for me.

Ash- No song? AAASHHHHH I WANT A SONG!!! (no pressure, mostly kidding)(although it would be very cool)(but no pressure)

Rockdog- Thank you. Did I win?

LB- Im going to send that to you baby. You are a birthday present unto yourself.

Jay,Crawlspace, MOTD, Lisa, Jenny Ryan and Jen- Thanks Folks! (and Lisa im savoring the virtual werther's!)

Mert!- Isnt she talented? She amazes me.
