Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{January 13, 2009}   My Sister Is So Nice

Today’s blog posting consists of the birthday card I just got from my sister, along with a cheque:

Notice how she put my niece’s name first, as if my niece is the one who wrote this?  Isn’t my sister so nice to me? My only consolation here is no matter how old I am, she’s always older!

{January 11, 2009}   999 for 32

Today is my birthday.  But you knew that.

This is what a photo of a cake looks like when you take the photo upside down and then you flip it upside right. This cake was delicious.

Despite what Kalev was trying to get people to believe, I turned 32 today. Or 29 for the 4th time.  Or my double sweet 16.  I celebrated my day by playing a game of hockey1 and watching the two hour season premiere of 24.  Which was much better than the 24 movie, thank the FSM.  Also – Tod made me a delicious dinner.  And I ate cupcakes that Rachel gave me.  Mmmm, cupcakes.

Coincidentally2, this is my 999th blog posting.  That’s a lot of frickin’ blog postings.

1in which we got slaughtered. But that’s neither here nor there.
2Seriously, I didn’t arrange that on purpose. It just sort of happened that way.



{January 10, 2009}   It’s Bethmas Eve!

So first off, I have to admit that I totally stole my blog title from Miss 604, who said on Jan 8, the day before her birthday, that it was “Becky Eve.”1

Since my actual birthday is tomorrow, a Sunday2, I decided to get some friends together last night for dinner and to watch the Canucks game at Coppertank.   Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate my birthday with me!  And special thanks to Airdrie who brought me a cake!  And Rachel who brought cupcakes!  And Jen who gave me a card with the awesome sticker that I’m wearing in this photo.

1I thought this was on Twitter, but I searched Twitter to be able to provide a link to it and it’s not there. Then I thought maybe it was on Facebook, but I checked that and it’s not there either, nor is it on Miss604.com. So I have no idea where I saw it!
2On top of Sundays being not the best day for celebrating, I have a hockey game to play on Sunday.



{December 28, 2008}   Two Week Warning

Today is the day that Beth travels back to Vancouver. Unless she’s decided that Mexico is so nice that she’s going to stay. Which, you know, totally could have happened. Anyway, today’s blog posting contains not a link or a cute photo of cats in boxes, but rather, a very important reminder: Beth’s birthday is only two weeks away. I’m just sayin’



{September 19, 2008}   Happy Birthday, Dr. Raul!
