The gift that keeps on giving.

FIRST. Let me just say how INCREDIBLY touched I’ve been by the outpouring of birthday wishes I’ve received from everyone. The comments on this blog, emails, eCards, phone calls, greeting cards, the list goes on.  I simply cannot thank you all enough.  I know I’ve said it maaaaannnny times before, BUT sometimes a girl’s gotta shout it from the mountaintops.

My friends are THE BEST!!!!!

So.  now that the candles are blown out, the presents have been opened, and I thought everything was back to normal. I find myself still enjoying that pre-birthday present sent straight from the universe.  YES FOLKS I am talking about the Plague.  Truly the gift that keeps on giving, this whatever-I-have just won’t go away.  And much like that guest lingering long after the party’s over, I just want him to pack up and get the hell out.

And the LUCKY WINNER of the bracelet is…

RUBY!  Chosen by the highly scientific picking-it-out-of-a-hat method.  Many thanks to the lovely John for his assistance, and to everyone else for entering and/or commenting and making me feel SUPER DEE DUPER.  I know I’ve said it before – but really, can it ever be said too much??  My friends are the BEST.

Happy weekend to you all!!
