Office birthday party

This picture was simultaneously ridiculous and not too shabby, so I thought I'd share. I just came from my joint birthday party with officemate Patty, whose birthday is today, and it was fun: potluck and silliness at work and thoughtful gifts.

I work with nice folks. Really nice folks. I like the birthday potluck tradition; if insurance ever goes bust, we can always open a restaurant. We do pretty well. Today was mac & cheese and Frito pie (called "chili boats" by my coworkers... what do YOU call it?) and vegetarian lasagne and various crudites and fruit salad and warm homemade pumpkin pie and lemon bars (my favorite). Yummy.

The deer-in-headlights look is due to being photographed on a cell phone: I have no idea where the lens is and didn't have a clue where to look or when.

Yikes, I missed it. Happy, happy!

Could we be further behind...on most everything?

Happy Birthday though! (For some reason, it is easy to just skip the hundred other things we've written aloud while taking about what we will write with time.)

(Happy Anniversary and perfuming and all of those good things too!)

Hi guys,

No, you didn't miss it... today is actually the day, but since two of us in the office have birthdays within about a week, we had the joint party on the first one to occur. Thank you for the wishes!

Heather, I am late on everything too. So much to do, so much to write about. I'll try to catch up as soon as my dad goes back to Santa Fe: he surprised us with a visit.

If Sam is lurking comments -- happy birthday to her, too! It was this week sometime and I am awful with dates.
