Friends and memes and shame and birthdays and

I just spent a nice long time on the phone with sammyd. He's a really wonderful and interesting person, spins a good tale, tells a good joke, and I'm so impressed with how he's managing to live his life with some joy in it even after losing his best beloved only a few months ago. I know she is so proud watching him from heaven.

I did a meme over on FB earlier tonight, it's a "How big is your fine" thing, which gives a set fine amount for things like being arrested, vandalizing, smoking pot, and a number of sexual things.

I'm not sure what the highest you can get is, because I didn't continue adding after I got my total, but it can't be that much more than my total, as I don't think there were even ten items on the list I had not done. I find myself ashamed. Deeply and incredibly ashamed that I have done so much that is just so off the wall.

Today was Sam's birthday. I gave him a book of poetry that I got from my friend Suzanne, which he really liked (thank you SO much, Suzanne!) and the boys each gave him a $10 B&N gift card.

And I got this awesome package in the mail today from gina_gwynne! Boatloads of Altoids (and other) tins.. a far out funny book called Give The Bitch Her Chocolate, and the piece de resistance, she MADE me a gorgeous jewelry set (necklace, bracelet, two different sets of matching earrings). I think the stones are rhodochrosite, and there are the most lovely little butterfly and hummingbird charms hanging from the pieces.. and adorable spacer beads of tiny flowers and tiny dragonflies. It's beautiful and the workmanship is incredible, she does not use jump rings, she does wire wrapping, which I can tell you from my days as a rosary maker is time consuming and makes your fingers awfully sore! The love and time put into this is just amazing. I actually cried when I saw it. :) Thank you so much Gina, I love you too! :)
