Pa is pretty on the ball when it comes to presents. Both of my parents asked for my birthday list about a month ago, and I just kinda filled it with things I vaguely wanted. There wasn't really anything I needed, so I didn't know what to ask for. But man, he and JM blew me away. They got me a couple new flannel shirts, 21 scratchcards (I won $23), a gift certificate to a snazzy restaurant (so Flash and I can go eat something nicer than chicken stir fry for a change), and a year's subscription to the Original Craft Beer Club. ISN'T THAT AMAZING? I had no idea things like that existed.
Flash read through the book and found that one of the buildings is in a town called Middlefart, and now he won't stop talking about farting in the middle of Middlefart.
Flash was really excited to start giving me presents, too, so he gave me one a few days early. Back in May, we went on a roadtrip to Seattle. At the Seattle Aquarium, I revealed my adoration of octopi and lamented the fact that I didn't have an octopus charm for my charm bracelet. The man remembered that, and got me a really nifty charm. I'm a huge fan :)
Ah, fabric and beers. Now I'm really enjoying waiting for the mail to come.
