Congratulations! You're totally not dead, yet!

One of the best, kindest, funnest (funnest is grammatically correct- I just looked it up) people I've ever known is celebrating her birthday today.

Happy birthday, Angie!

Angie has the biggest heart of anyone I know, and even though I may have called her a jerkopotamus for having lost a bunch of weight and looking all sassy, she is a total awesomesaurus and deserving of the best birthday ever.

Angie faces everything in her life, good or bad, with serenity and dignity.

Angie is loyal to a fault. And really her worst quality is how profoundly kind she is.

Angie is always looking for the next opportunity to do better, be better, be happier, and have fun.

The best decision I've made in quite a while was to work out a few days a week with Angie. I'm sure the cardio is great for my health, but the opportunity to monopolize Angie for an hour several days a week is incomparable.

She an amazing partner in crime. And I care for her deeply.

If there is some reward for being wonderful, surely she will receive two.

Angie, you're the best and we all love you. Happy happy happy birthday!

What have I been up to?

Mac and cheese:

And working late.
Which is not as good as homemade mac and cheese with my family, but I think is also nourishing in its own way.

Things I've also been doing:
  • working at Emerald City Comicon
  • writing short fiction
  • helping my friends bring great books to the marketplace
  • scraping together as much time as possible for Muffin, for my friends, and for my family

Watch Out! It's only a matter of time.
