Last night, Mr D grilled some KILLER steaks for our anniversary. Mushroom rice with cheese, basil corn, and green beans on the side, and it was oh, so good. So, my happy maker is anniversary dinners to die for! (And 19 years with the live of my life, of course! )

Found a couple cute new dresses while thrift shopping for my birthday tomorrow. For sure will be wearing the little black one.

With the birthday sash.


Because nothing says "26th birthday" like going to a drag show ("Drag Off") at an inclusive lesbian night club in Dallas.

Happy Birthday!


Happy maker from last night, but managed to find the missing billboard part for the Half Shell Heroes play set I recently got off of eBay. The one part cost me almost $10, but at least I'd gotten the play set for a really decent price to start with. Now I just need to find the water tower... (The blue rocket car is also missing, but think we can do without if one doesn't get listed for cheaper.)

I'd hoped to grab an April figure to go along with the few new and used ones I have for it to give my nephew, but wow, that is a pricey little figure.

Birthday was fun

Had to run with some changes in plans, but they worked out okay enough.

Couldn't go to the drag show because my brother's girlfriend had work super early in the morning, so it wasn't feasible for us all to go.

So they took me to Korean Barbecue instead. Which I had always wanted to do.
Spoiler:
Though asking for prime steak was a mistake. There was no way to cut it down to size without the kitchen scissors we were given, and it ended up being tough and gristly.

Which made me gag so hard that, let's just say my gag reflexes failed hard and I had to make a mad dash to the bathroom with a napkin over my mouth.


BUT I did have a great hour-long massage and then got snacks to watch Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood on.
And got my mom to watch a good part of it until we got tired. Left up on the Rush Valley departure. She's known my brother and I liked it for a long time, but never actually watched an episode with us

Highlights:
Spoiler:
She wanted to cry during the Nina Chimera reveal (I completely forgot to make nonchalant spoiler hints. "She and her dog are inseparable!"

Thought the animation was amazing

Including the Hughes funeral.

Speaking of that, I realized we were watching the episode when he dies and I yelled "oh no!" and then told her she had to wait to find out.



Except for one of my kittens spiking a fever and having some heavy breathing while she sleeps, it was an okay day.

And the...Korean Barbecue shame that will follow me to my wedding day.




Also I'm slightly drunk.

Thank god for the add-on to restore the older YouTube layout...

Have continued using the old one since back when they actually had the opt out option, but deciding today to go and clear my cache and cookies (which I appanetly haven't done for a pretty long time), went and ruined it for some reason and got stuck with with the "new" one, with no opt out option available anymore. Grr. And holy crap that current layout is slow on my old computer and pretty much unusable.

Really hate that some sites have to be so bloated up with nonsense that makes them that way. Sure, I'm the one behind the times a bit, but so many sites, including this one, are just fine and make what others do seem so unnecessary. Esp when they previously functioned and looked just fine. Why fix what ain't broke.

But yeah... thank god. (If anyone wants or needs it, the Firefox add-on for it is named "Restore Old Theme of YouTube.")

Someone who I thought blocked me on Facebook two years ago, actually didn't. I finally got to see her today after all of that time, and she explained that her page was hacked, and then she took it down. All that time, I thought I might have done or said something to offend her, and she assured me that I hadn't done anything wrong.

Was up way later than I intended last night browsing eBay trying to decide what book I wanted, but getting one for almost free (paid 48 cents in total, and no shipping) was kinda worth it.

FYI, there is a $3 off ebay code that expires tonight (just before midnight U.S. Pacific time), item/order must total at least $3.01.

Code: PROMO3

They say it's "intended" for first time buyers, but it works for everyone.

I actually did take a short nap instead of "nap" and go to sleep for the rest of the day!

My new goddess rose pendant came yesterday! It was a replacement for one I've had for years that the clasp-ring to hold it on had broken off, so now I have one to wear again. Have felt rather naked without anything around my neck for a while now. Happy to have this finally arrive! Now I just need to get a new chain for my spider zirconia pendant that hubby got me for Christmas several years ago. Spider-totem has not been happy....

Happy maker... Accurate eBay descriptions. They said a book (that I got today) was in excellent condition for an ex-library book, and glad to find it's very true. Were it not for the remaining library stickers I'd have never guessed it didn't come off the shelf of a book store.

It's only a 2014 publication, so I'm surprised it was taken out of circulation already, but hey, it got me an otherwise like-new book at half the price Amazon wants for it, and minus the shipping.


Also finally got one of those Loot Crate TMNT pins. Spotted one (used) for $1.99, no shipping...by a new account/seller with zero sales or reviews. I generally don't touch anything with a seller below 98%, so going blind on a new one, umm... but figured at that price I could take a chance on a newbie and was glad to give him his first (and all good!) review.

Setting off the last couple of larger fireworks that were my dad's.

Had gotten a whole bunch of them quite a few years ago and he'd do a few each year. The last of them had gotten buried in the back of a large shed when certain people were moving stuff and just randomly filled the shed up with everything; and a bunch of other crap they shouldn't have. They'd finally came across them the other day while cleaning out; thanks to an uncle temporarly moving in and cracking the whip a bit on my brother-in-law to get some of that mess they've created finally taken care of. So that was bitter sweet to set off the last two without dad here. Ran out and got the reusable tub for them this morning before it rains, just to save as a keepsake.


Also the amount of lightening bugs we have. After so many years of them close to gone, they suddenly had a really good season two years ago and it's nice to see them back in decent number. Gone from spotting one if you were lucky (so sad) to back to seeing multiple flashes anywhere you look.

After a few years ago when I saw one lonely one two houses down and watched it come up through the yards, through our own and kept going... sad for the poor thing looking for any other of its kind and there just weren't any in sight anywhere , I really wasn't sure if we'd ever have them back.
