Happy birthday to my favorite flister!

A very happy birthday to strangexgirl, otherwise known as Emily, otherwise known as my girlfriend! *does Snoopy dance* She's at home right now listening to the wind howl and ice fall on the roof, and I'm stuck at work, but we'll have a nice dinner this evening -- maybe Chinese food, if the doors aren't all frozen shut at that point. Then she gets her gift, which is all wrapped up and waiting on my desk at the moment. Um, in my office at the house, where she is. *gulp* :-)

Charis made her a wonderful chocolate cake, which we picked up Thursday and have already sampled (complete with ice cream, natch) Add that Mountain Dew you see alongside and you've got the perfect treat:

Rather belatedly, I got some candles going on -- observe the Pac Man burning cake with Emily's name on it. I kind of liked the lighting effect, even though it probably means I need to clean off the lens:

And of course, Emily had to blow out the candles. The bucket is not a comment on our food -- I've been fighting a roof leak that sometimes comes down on the kitchen table:

Then, last night, we had steak and potatoes! Yummy -- Emily made the steak, and I baked the potatoes -- I always try to take the easier jobs in the kitchen.

Can't give you any pictures of her present, 'cause hey -- she might be lurking, hoping I'll announce it. I love you, Emi! *bounced up and down like a crazed Tom Cruise* How did a broken-down old wanna-be fiction writer like me get so lucky?

Awwwww! You're in love, and it's dorky. :3

I hope Emily has a wonderful birthday!

Well, I was dorky even before I was in love -- this just makes it more justifiable! :-)

Happy Birthday to Emily! Have a lovely day, both of you.

Thanks, we'll surely try! We have had to adjust our plans, though, in an attempt to not go outside anymore than possible. It's 6 degrees farenheit now, and we're under a wind chill advisory with a lot of ice still out there, and snow falling. I'm thinking anywhere inside is a good place.

Probably a spell!!!! Happy Christmas to both of you and a wonderful New Year,
Dec. 21st, 2008 11:43 am (UTC)
Of course -- she put a spell on me! Merry Christmas to you, too!

Happy Birthday Emily!!

And Ozma

We need photographic evidence of the Snoopy Dance
Dec. 21st, 2008 11:46 am (UTC)
Oh, I go to extremes to avoid having myself photographed while any dancing at all is taking place ... *points to icon* Worse than that.

Aw. :D:D

And hey, you are no wanna-be.! :)

ooh! I';d better get off LJ since you actually just got off work! :D

Well ... wanna-be *published* fiction writer, then! :-) *holds you tight*

Humming the chorus of "Love is on the air!"
What a wonderful post! I went after strange and claimed her as a friend. I like to collect matched sets!! I am sure you both are celebrating her happy birthday!! So sweet.

And what's with the wannabe? You are a great fiction writer!!
Dec. 22nd, 2008 06:45 am (UTC)
Okay, then -- wannabe *published* fiction writer. I kinda want to do this for a living, someday! :-)
Dec. 21st, 2008 09:04 pm (UTC)
Please don't compare yourself to that crazed closet case, nor are you a broken-down old anything (I've seen you dance, remember). You are a true romantic, and Emily is very lucky. Well, so are you. Best wishes to both of you.

**sprinkles you with Tara sparklies as a benediction**
Dec. 22nd, 2008 06:48 am (UTC)
Yay for Tara sparklies!

Thanks much!

(I'm so happy to say this about someone else.) You guys are so cute!
Dec. 22nd, 2008 06:31 am (UTC)
Well, at least one of us is, anyway. ;-)
