Birthdays

Yesterday was Tall One's birthday. He decided to get presents the evening before, though, because of his too busy schedule that is sort of crazy on Thursdays.

Creeper plushy
I got him a plushy Minecraft Creeper. It's actually something I've been eying since Christmas since I thought it was really adorable, and I've been waiting for the price to go down on it. (Is it bad that I confessed this to Tall One?) Happily, he likes it even more than I'd hoped he would.

For those who don't know, Minecraft is an online game, and Creepers are...well, they're creepy. They'll creep up behind you, then go BOOM. This tends to be very unfortunate for the player.

And you want to know the really awesome thing about this plushy? If you squeeze it, it goes boom. Well, it makes the sound, anyways. It wouldn't work out too well if it really did go boom.

Unfortunately Tall One wound up sick yesterday. He spent pretty much his whole birthday in bed, but was able to eat chocolate cake when he got up in the evening. Of all the days to be sick...

In other news, tomorrow is The Belly Dancer's birthday. Since she moved away we seem to have become the sort of friends who barely talk, but who still send each other presents. I found a pair of silver dangle earrings that I hoped she would like, and which she got in the mail a couple of days ago. She seemed to like them, judging from the photo she put on Facebok, so I think I made a good choice of present this year.

It was definitely a much better than a couple years ago when I sent her something with a pretty leaf on it...which she later pointed out was a marijuana leaf...oops...hey, I had a sheltered childhood.

So I guess my brother's birthday sucked, though the cake and presents were good. And I hope that The Belly Dancer has lots of fun on her birthday tomorrow. :)

Well, at least your brother was able to eat some cake! That's good.

Yep. Being able to eat cake is usually a good thing. :)
