Proof of how well she knows me: her choice of birthday gifts. And, no, before you point it out, it's not my birthday yet. But Karen knows that I am impatient, and even she couldn't have kept me from the blue bag with tissue paper sticking out. I was eight years old, as I often am, and I opened every single one last night. You'd think that I might've picked up on some of the hints... What's your favorite number? Do you like electronics in brown or orange? Alas, I didn't catch on once, and was completely surprised at all of them. Especially the camera, who is sitting next to me on my desk. He is copper colored, and very handsome. I have to think of a name for him. He has already taken pictures of my desk turtles, my family photos, my computer desktop, Karen at her desk (Smile!) and my plant. (Should I point out that I've been here for maybe twenty minutes?) I am more than a little excited. Expect to see lots more photos here from now on.
I also got a great red and blue necklace, the Wii Cranium game we've had our eyes on for ages, salt and pepper magnets for my desk, a Browns jersey with my name and birthday on it (wow!) and as always, a very heartfelt card. I should get LOTS of work done today ;)
