WOO! I'm older!

Yep. Yesterday = best birthday evah. All I pretty much did was eat really well and slob a lot. 

Saturday I took Alana & Marty & Sandy to Shakahari's for a belated birthday dinner for Alana - soooo tasty yet again. Avocado & roast capsicum tempura rolls followed by Vegetarian Laksa. Mmmmm. Homer-drool.

Then on Sunday (my bday) Alana made me the best breakfast ever - omelette with home-grown mushrooms and goat's cheese. Later, she took me out to buy me lunch at Tom Phat (cafe that does typical cafe food with an Asian influence). Best lunch ever. Sticky Soy Wrap - marinated tofu & Asian greens wrapped in a roti, and we split some french fries with basil mayo. Also had best smoothie ever - coffee, cinnamon & banana. Then on to the supermarket for groceries, so Alana could cook me the best dinner ever - pita bread pizzas and an ENORMOUS chocolate-pecan pie (that's pronounced PEE-CAN, weird American guys) with Homer Hudson Vanilla ice cream. Now I'm living on lettuce leaves to make up. Not really. Living on good Shiraz, actually. 

Scooped the pool with surprisingly good birthday gifts, too, btw.
Alana bought me the most *awesome* cookbook. So can't wait to make stuff for people. She also made me a Rodney McKay T-shirt:
 

The atlantis=rodney logo is based on a local company's logo, which normally reads either 'atlantis=solutions' or 'atlantis=logistics'. It has a pic on the left sleeve and pics around the bottom of the shirt (I have a Rodney!bum!)

My sister gave me another cookbook, I also received a fantastic scarf, cool chopsticks and lip balm, a Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker (the unholy union of a cocktail shaker with a mortar & pestle); a mobile phone; soap & bodycream (surprise gift from my aunt); $50 voucher for Borders' book store; $30 voucher for JB HiFi (dvds & cds); lots of cash, and more to come. I'm spoilt.

Thanks also to nimnod, for her birthday wishes & v-gift, ditto to the lovely dragontatt, also to carrieross  for the actual cardboard card sent via snail mail, and to the cheek-pinchingly cute clockstopper  for her birthday wishes & fic offer! My boss at work today asked how old I was, and then exclaimed over how I was suited to being the subject of Marianne Faithfull's The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan. Yeah, thanks Marg. I actually really like that song. It's a great song for when you're depressed. I like to listen to depressing songs when I'm depressed. It's like the singers are saying: "You're not the first person to feel this way, bitch! Get over it!" So I feel ashamed and get over it. No depression for me right now, though. Nope, nothing but a nose full of mucous!!! HA! Sharing is caring, f-list! Nothing is TMI for you!

Jeez. That's it. Either the stuffed sinuses or the ohsofine Shiraz has gone to my head. I'm outta here. I leave you with a bonus picture: An autumn afternoon in downtown Melbourne, shot from the fourth floor of my (work) building.

possibly my first choice would be still attached to a Rodney

... POSSIBLY??? I say DEFINITELY!

And yeah, isn't she pretty? I do love Melbourne.
