So Max and I are chatting in the New Header Image thread, and it dawns on me that my birthday is coming up.
I’ll be 18 on Valentine’s Day. W00T!
I’m giving you all plenty of notice, so you can’t cry that you didn’t have time to get me nuthin’.
Here’s what I want:
I’ll add to the list as I think of stuff, and cross things off as I get them, so you all won’t be getting me the same thing. I’m good like that.
blipey. In full clown make-up and tied to a chair. Since he’s on tour though, I’ll gratefully accept a picture in lieu of the real thing. (Wear an old clown outfit though, blipey, I fully intend to remove it with an extremely sharp and delicate blade.)
Gracie O’Malley. Ditto.
That autographed picture of Dr. Tara she keeps promising to send.
An autographed copy of BadAstronomy, the book.
This modest telescope. (Note: Anyone who gets me that, don’t worry about shipping it. Kate and I will personally come and pick it up, whereupon I guarantee you a legendary “Thank You”, complete with video and autographed photos of the event. Just so y’know.)
A full day at the spa with all the trimmings.
A ride on Space Ship Two. (So I can join the 60 mile-high club. 😉 )
A date with Old Knudsen.
A hard bound copy of Maryann (when it’s finished, of course).
A birthday wish from Molly,with a picture of Molly posing as Lilith(like my avatar). Molly’s Birthday Wish, and In which Molly and W. Merganser Interpret “Lilith” for Janie
(Molly, I just really read your front page the other day about that whole 18 years old thing. Sorry, I didn’t mean to, and I hope I didn’t, get you into any trouble. I’ll be there and at Playful Bent after my birthday!)
