Birthday Week rolls on. My actual birthday was pretty darn great. Of course, compared to last year – a root canal without anesthesia while listening to Creed would have been an improvement.
My mom called at midnight as she always does, and she listened to America’s “Ventura Highway” which she played when she was pregnant with me (once we were driving on the VH and she was said “I can’t believe I listened to this when I was carrying you and now you are driving me on it!”) I blasted U2 in the AM and bought donuts for my office. Colleagues gave me greetings and of course the Facebook wall filled up all day with posts and cards and pictures. I got cards and presents in the mail, had a great dinner with my mom and friends and gorged myself on a deadly chocolate cake. Got more presents (including Crush Crafts!) and calls and even sweet things from semi-strangers who share in my obsessions which was lovely.
So if you know me – these birthday gifts will not surprise you. If you don’t know me – this pretty much sums me up:
- U2: Under a Blood Red Sky DVD, Unforgettable Fire Re-master
- Big Bang Theory S2 DVD
- Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog DVD
- iTunes gift card
- X-Files Fight the Future DVD
- A card addressed to “Mrs. Jason Stackhouse”
My mom also gave me some amazing Larry Mullen themed gifts and she MADE me a Killers tote! It is all sparkly like Brandon. Love it!
Speaking of the Brandon Flowers obsession – I am on-line at The Killers fansite and the fans there (called “The Victims” hee!) are amazing: one girl posted a pic for me that I love, and another found a video on YT of Brandon singing Happy Birthday at a show! How great is that? Sister Obsessives (and Mom Obsessives) are the best.
