I had a happy birthday!

 How could I not? I was taken out for Thai food and I got dark chocolate sea salt caramels.
I didn't ask, but based on the shape of the box I suspect Mr. Logo got a screaming deal on these.
Which is good because my OTHER present 
 was not exactly inexpensive.
I now have a 2010 Rav 4 in Barcelona Red, wheeeee!

I really like it.
Last year I was taken to Paris,
this year I got a car.
So far my 4th decade is ROCKIN' in the birthday gift department.
It is sort of looking like a Toyota lot around here though.
Ah well, they make some nice cars.

stuffs and nonsense

This is a photo of August Landmesser.
I found this on a tumblr with the caption something along the lines of,
"Crossing yer arms and staring down the fascists... like a boss."

I love that.
 I recently heard some people despairing of the Millennial generation but I think we have just as much cause for hope.
I also found the following graphic which makes me wonder if someone had a comic fMRI on me while I was thinking. It's meeeee!

There is something just gorgeous about a good book...

isn't there?

I dream fondly of a day when I can lounge about and read undisturbed for several hours. I am currently re-reading a book called Quicksilver which is about vagabonds, courtesans, Puritans, alchemists, natural philosophers, and calculus.
It's actually quite good despite that incredibly awkward description.

I've also recently come into possession of the whole set of Tintin adventures. I've always loved them but my children had limited interest til the recent movie. Now I have a good excuse to own them all, yay!
