Birthday and VD pressies!

So . . . today is my birthday.

ZMrK, my stepdaugther KBH, and I celebrated yesterday with dinner at Border Cafe and cake. I've been getting loads of pressies: KBH gave me scrumptious Burt's Bees lotion and some earrings handmade by a friend of hers from old records and beads. ZMrK gave me a lovely loose tea pot, some yummy tea, the One-Skein Wonders book and this:

I had remarked that I would love to have a portrait of my "ancestor" like there often is in old Hammer or Roger Corman films. ZMrK took that idea and ran with it, with the help of the artist Stephen Blickenstaff. I love the addition of the tuxedo cat.

I also came home from work to a lovely VD present from knitmonkey on the knittyboard:

Check it out: Altoids gum (I love Altoids!)and some cool skull stitch markers that came in a little Pacheco (sp?) pouch, and some Green & Black Organics Hot Cocoa that came in a Chinese takeaway box.

Thank you, knitmonkey!!

Thank you, ZMrK and KBH for giving me such an awesome birthday!!!!

I have something I was going to mail you - send me your addy, eh?

Disclaimer: It's not nearly as cool as the portrait. That's like the most kickass thing I've ever seen. How you don't explode into a giant mushroom cloud of coolness is beyond me.
