Oh yeah? And what makes it my "un-birthday"? Because this afternoon I got a BIG surprise in the mail. ^_^ I got a couple of totally unexpectedly, TOTALLY AWESOME gifts from a very close and special friend of mine, for seemingly no reason in particular... except he thought they would make me happy. ^___^
Well, guess what, my friend? I love them! Thank you so so so so soooooooooo much!!! ^_^
This looks like a very interesting anime movie. My friend had highly recommended it to me, but I couldn't find it in the library. Now I don't have to worry about that, because I have this DVD for keeps! Yay! I still have yet to see it, but I'm sure it'll be great. ^_^
Oh, now THIS was such an awesome gift. The gift of a new musical obsession! Ahhh!
I'd never heard of Panic! at the Disco before my wonderful, wonderful friend sent me an album of theirs, "Vices & Virtues". By now, I've listened to all of the songs, and I must say... they are a-maaaaay-zing! Don't believe me? (How dare you not believe me?!) Here's a link to a playlist of all their songs on the album. ^_^
Thank you SO much for making my day, friend. You know who you are. ^_~
Aside from all that, something perhaps equally crazy happened today. My brother Adam asked if I wanted to take a walk with him... while it was raining outside! Without an umbrella! O_o
Now normally, one would immediately say no to an idea like that, right? Because we're all wicked witches and will melt if we allow falling water to make us wet. But I thought about it... I looked down at the clothes I was wearing and decided, Hey, I don't mind getting them wet. Sure, let's go on a walk... or rather, a swim... around the neighborhood!
So we did it! And it was so much fun! ^_^ The two of us got drenched in minutes, of course. But it felt so very nice, like walking through a huge shower. The air was rich, fresh and cool. I loved every minute of that walk. It was something I knew would be really memorable, and every once in a while I couldn't help giggling. Because I was sooooo wet!
By the time my bro and I got home, we were soaked to the skin. But I was still happy.
On a day like today, it feels like absolutely nothing can rain on my parade. ^_^
