It's only been an hour of my birthday so far and it is already quite good! Yoon gave me a present when she was here, which I was completely not expecting, and it was the hardcover first edition of McKinley's Beauty, signed, and just... squeee!!!!! I can't believe she went through all the trouble to get it signed at Wiscon and lug it back and to remember and I am just so happy because even though I've owned several of the HarperCollins paperback with the beautiful goldish cover which I've read to bits, but the very first version of Beauty I read in the school library was this very hardcover, with the same cover, and it is evoking the nostalgia of camping out in the library and reading it so quickly because I couldn't wait for the book to come from our Scholastic book orders.

And on Thursday I had yummy yummy sushi with my auntie and am so happy and amazed that she remembered about the knitting needle kit even though she couldn't find it. The sushi was really, really good. Really. Mmmm. Fried oyster sushi. I don't care if it's not traditional, it was delicious. It was the crispiness of the fried oysters and the hotness of them fresh from something, coupled with the creaminess of the avocado and rice and vinegar and mmmmmm and the yummy crunchy yellow tobiko.

And today the people at work threw a surprise party (which wasn't that much of a surprise, since they do that for all birthdays, but it was still very, very nice!), and I had very good marbled chocolate cheesecake with the delicious chocolate crust, and oh my gosh, so good. I just finished off the leftovers of the cake, and mmmmm. Creaminess chocolatey cheesecake.

And [livejournal.com profile] cychi called and I have not talked to him for forever because he is currently in Taiwan, and I am just happy and very content sitting around and feeling all indulged and luxurious. I'm just so surprised and so touched that people have done things! Wow.

I have a bowl of cherries sitting around, and a lot of fruit and lemonade in the fridge and white corn, and my rats are fat and cute (must take Fitz-rat to vet on Sunday, note to self, make appointment), and I just watched Little Shop of Horrors, which is about a carnivorous plant and is a musical to boot, and so all is right with the world. I just feel so satisfied and happy and full in all senses.
