I've always been weird about getting presents. There's no true way for me to express my gratitude toward the people who took the time and effort to get me a gift. To me, their time and friendship is already a gift in itself. As some of you already know, my birthday is on Sunday. Already, the thoughtfulness of my friends has been made quite clear to me.
To @Panacamanana, thank you so much for everything. I love it all and already wear my FREAKING AMAZING Jayne hat regularly. More than anything, I adore the watermelon jolly ranchers, which were an inside joke from your stay with me last Spring.
To @Diaz_Vito, I always admired the artwork that @Vaewyn does. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it, as well. Every time I turn on my phone, I see that picture and think of you.
To @Nester82, everyday you give me so much by being my SUPERDEEDUPERBESTESTBESTFRIEND. (fuck you, spell check! That's a word!), so thank you for your generosity. I have no idea what I'm going to buy with my new Microsoft Points, but rest assured it'll probably be badass and somehow Halo 4 related. I'll of course let you know what it is when I figure it out
I never really ask for anything for my birthday... Probably to my family's frustration, I have a hard time pointing out items that I want, and feel greedy (that may be the wrong word) for saying that I want them to get me some specific item. Whenever someone asks what I want for my birthday, I usually respond with "love and understanding." Really, all I want is to share my birthday with my friends and family.
It is on that note that I ask you to come hang out with me on Monday. I'll be on RoosterSpeak with @ActionMan (and hopefully @KempoB and @Blondicus, whose birthdays are the 9th and the 12th, respectively), celebrating our 21st birthdays. I have no idea what we'll be doing other than drinking. Yeah, it's a Monday, but I have to kick-start my alcoholism some way, don't I?
