Birthday, Continued

9:35 p.m. / 21:35

I had lunch with a friend at Fazoli's today, and then did some shopping at Plato's Closet-- all good fun. I got a "happy birthday" phone message from another friend a couple of hours ago.

I just returned home from Barnes & Noble, where of course I did damage to my checking account, in spite of the $10.00 gift card I had. I picked up High Fidelity by Nick Hornby, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers and Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.

Reading, Reading, Reading...

3:28 p.m. / 15:28

Well, I finished reading the last Sisterhood book, Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood. Following that, I finally finished Nick Hornby's A Long Way Down. It took me some time to get through that one, but I liked it. Today I started Watermelon by Marian Keyes. It's a book I've been meaning to read for quite some time. I'm only about nine pages into it, but so far it's entertaining.



2:49 a.m. / 02:49

It's my 24th birthday today, although most of the celebrating is already over. I had six good friends over for massive, sugar-y ice cream sundaes on Saturday night. After that, most of us went to play on a massive playground that has a cool tire swing, among other cool features. I suppose a lot of people would find sundaes and a playground to be odd and / or boring high-lights of a 24th birthday party, but I had fun, and so did my friends. Sunday, my mom made pineapple upside-down cake. Yum! I think I'm having lunch with a good friend today, and a co-worker has said she's bringing me a chocolate-peanut butter pie on Tuesday (I'm off work today).

Gifts are not the most important part of a birthday celebration, so far as I'm concerned, but I'll list them anyway:

The two Target gift cards have already been put towards four dinner plates (one red, one yellow, one green, one blue), a pair of fuzzy blue striped socks, a pair of blue and green argyle knee-high socks and Eragon, by Christopher Paolini.
