You should be. Not only did I get a personalized card created by the Original Oldgirl LadyLee

But I was also blessed with not one but TWO tins of cookies!

Oatmeal raisin

and chocolate chip!

If you don't know, Ladylee is a geeky science chick, but in addition to that she is an extraordinary writer. She sent me a not-so-short short story which I have not started yet because I couldn't wait to make you all JEALOUS with all my awesome gifts.

I did however read the personal note that was attached and it made me smile.

See, the Original Oldgirl has been reading me for a very long time ... longer than most ... long before I ever censored myself. So, she's read some sh*t. And even though we have never been in each other's presence I think she knows me pretty well. Better than some folks who have been up in my face for more than twenty years.

Anyway, Oldgirl, I appreciate your thoughtfulness and even though I got a root canal today and I can only chew on one side of my face, I have been munching on my treats. I already told my daughter that I'm going to have to hide the cookies if she doesn't learn to eat in moderation. She says "thank you" by the way.

And for the rest of you ... be nice to each other. Take the time to be kind. You never know how your kindness will affect somebody else.

I'm going to take a couple of motrin and read "I Fall to Pieces".

What a great birthday you have had! I'm going to steal the personalized card idea though. :)

Yes, I'm jealous. I offered to take those tins off her hands.

Happy Birthday!

LadyLee said...

HA HA!!! Glad you got your gifts Oldgirl!

We have been reading each other for a minute, haven't we? I gotta make sure I don't run for president cuz you could blackmail me something terrible! Lawd have Mercy, help me!

Didn't know you were having a route canal. I woulda sent you some chocolate ovaltine or a couple cans of Ensure instead.

*Chele giving Lee the evil eye*


And uh, I looked in the cabinet and screamed when I saw I was out of raisins... So, uh, if those oatmeal cookies taste wierd, they are chock full of dried spiced apples and cranberries and walnuts instead. Still taste good! Enjoy!

Tell the Princess I said "You're Welcome."

Okay, I will stop blogging in your comment section, Chele.

Hope you enjoy that story. Suppose to be 1 page-500 words but, uh... it got out of control...waaaaay out of control. I just rolled with it. (But you were worth it: Original Oldgirl Platinum card carryin' Status has it's priviledges!)

And you know how I get down with the birthday tributes... Stop by my blog tomorrow!!! (But read the story first- it will have something to do with that).


Have a Happy Birthday.

And many many more!

I am so jealous, but you are so deserving. Ladylee knows how to get the celebration started. She’s a good woman with a funny bone. It’s doesn’t get any better than that!
