Roll Out The Birthday Balloons

April is still busier than I remember, birthday-wise, and today is no exception!

Balloons and birthday cake for jolietjones and monotonygirl, and do not skimp on the materials!

One of you I haven't heard from in ages, but I hope all is well and that you're enjoying both life and your special day!

The other of you lives halfway across the world, and right now is probably either ZZZZZzzzzz or reading this and thinking, "Yes, birthday. That's so yesterday!"

If either of you lovely ladies would like a birthday drabble, please drop me a line in the comments with fandom, type and prompts! ♥

Movies and More

Finished Margot At The Wedding on DVD last night. I was hoping for dry humor, but it was an absolutely hateful movie with utterly poisonous characters. Great cast, good performances, but why did the writer/director feel that was a story that needed to be told? Ugh.

Still enjoying New Amsterdam except for the actress playing the sergeant (introduced 1-2 episodes back). She is awful. Leave some scenery for other people! Gosh, it's distracting.

Cycling: The suicidal squirrels are out, and it's that time of year when I fear getting baffed in the mouth with a big black butterfly. Yes, seriously-- nice wings aside, they're just really big insects with a lot of disgusting little legs. Yick. There was an outpouring of very fit men jogging shirtless on the upper part of the path-- nice surprise! And I nearly got hit in the helmet by a hawk. I don't know what that was about-- it was swooping down right into my space and pulled up at the last minute. I can't imagine it thought it was going to have me for dinner. :0
