Is Mah Birfday!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! The number of comments I got on Facebook was a bit staggering. A couple of members of my family-in-law recently "friended" me on there. They don't know I have a blog. I'm sure they're wondering how in the hell I know so many people. They probably think I'm a whore. I'm just kidding! They probably think I'm the Antichrist. For a birthday I wasn't all that excited about, I sure got spoiled.

My parents got me the "Little Big Planet" game and a grown-up watch. It doesn't even have numbers on it... OR cartoon characters! LBP (I'm using abbreviations cause I'm cool, not lazy, okay?) is quite possibly the most addictive video game I've ever played. It involves a sack boy, puzzles, and Monty Python style animation. Hoop likes to watch me play because I wiggle all over the couch with my tongue sticking out and yelling things like, "Get on that pony!"

My Grandparents got me a DS game (are you seeing a trend?) and some fancy lotion. Hoop's Mom and Grandma got me a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble. My friend Sarge got me a $25 gift card to the online ILoveObento! store. My other friend, and coworker, got me a really pretty metal fairy figurine for my desk. Hoop brought me flowers this afternoon and took me out to lunch. Tomorrow we're playing hooky and driving out to a local spring to see some manatees!

So yeah, 26 has been pretty wonderful so far...

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Tink: I don't understand why people own pets that only like them.
Hoop: Because they can't find a home for an animal that doesn't like anyone.
Tink: True. At least our dogs are friendly.
Hoop: Duff's friendly, he's just scared of everything.
Tink: ...like hairdryers.
Hoop: ...and trees.
Tink: ...and chairs.
Hoop: ...and Ewoks.
Tink: Yes, let's not forget the Ewoks.

Have a fun and safe weekend Homebloys!

Happy Birthday Tink! 26! Twenty-freaken-six! Enjoy all the wiggling that comes your way. (Did that sound wrong?)

Happy Birthday!!!! Mine's coming up next month, so you've got about 28 days to let me know how you're liking 26 before I join you.

I don't even like games but your description of LBP (see I'm cool too!) makes me want to play.
You got some nice loot this year. If I lived near you I would drop off the liquor that was missing from the gift list.
Happy Birthday!

All I can think is:
do you think you can buy a video game at Barnes and Noble with that gift card? I mean you're on a streak here...
Happy birthday, dear!

I always suspected you might be the Antichrist. I just thought he/she would be considerably less sporky.

Happy Birthday lady, hope Hoop got you that Dutch Oven he told me about.

Happy birthday! I got you a cake with a stripper who will jump out of it. Well, ok, don't get too excited. I didn't have any spare cash, so it's just Van jumping out of it. ;)

I'm pretty sure they don't think you are a whore, just a slut.

You've never take MONEY for sex, right?

Happy Birthday young Tinkwalker.

I hear LBP is pretty crazy and worth getting a PS3 for.
Happy B-Day!
