Dang, June is jammed with birthdays and anniversaries and all that good stuff. I send greetings here to my friends, but not to my family, as they have no idea this blog exists. (And I like it that way. I don't want to answer too many questions from my siblings. Especially the nice, but scary religious one. And I think a couple of the older siblings would simply be confused or disturbed.)
So, on a day that already brings birthday greetings to Ms. Grace, I have another reason to celebrate. Today is the anniversary of Yill and Public Radio Guy. These two are hilarious humans and my absolute favorite houseguests. They, in fact, were my houseguests the last time I had a mouse invasion in my kitchen. Except that time, they migrated to the bathroom, where Yill found one showering with her. In fact, that's how I found out I had a mouse invasion. (eeeew) Yet, miraculously, despite that traumatic nightmare, Yill still speaks to me.
Happy Anniversary, kids!
Very sadly, I missed Yill and Public Radio Guy's wedding. I was on some miserable work trip, probably herding Central Asians at a trade show. But they had the coolest wedding invitations ever. Few wedding invitations make me laugh - theirs did.
And, ultra cool people that they are, they brought me back a wonderful gift from their recent trip to the UK: a jar of Tesco's strawberry conserve with marc de champagne. (That's English strawberry jam with booze in it, to y'all.) It just arrived in the mail yesterday, and I plan to consume it in tiny, happy servings on toasty English muffins. Yum. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So, kids - have a marvelous day today. And many, many more marvelous days and years to come.
