Another Year Older, Another Year More Awesome

My Man: So, what do you think I got you for your birthday?

Me: Honey, I have no clue.  The last thing I really wanted and desired was a book case, and you got me that a few years ago.  Now it's all gravy.

Some time later......

Text Message From My Man: What's behind Door #1?



Yes, he put wrapping paper (Christmas wrapping paper, but hey - it's what we had in the Bat Cave....) over my book case.  With my birthday gifts, naturally - behind the paper.

I was all set to wait until today.  Really, I was.  I'm really good about (nice) surprises.  I can wait.  I won't peak.  I wasn't one of those kids who went snooping around the house looking for where "Santa" hid our Christmas gifts.

I'm an honest soul by nature.

But My Man?  Was practically bouncing up and down.  So I made the supreme sacrifice (ahem) and pulled back the paper behind Door #1 on Saturday.



OMG a Kindle Paperwhite!  And a new cell phone!  I loved my ancient Sony PRS-505 like crazy-cakes (a Christmas gift from My Man way back in 2007.....) and old (and my first) smartphone - but I feel like I've entered the 21st century in screen quality.  It's breathtaking!  It's wonderful!  Hell, I played with my toys all weekend long.  And I've got them just in time to take them on my upcoming road trip to RWA.

Wahooey!

Happy birthday! I hope your day includes pie :)

I love my paperwhite. I thought I'd miss my old Kindle keyboard, but nope. Am very happy with the new one.

Happy birthday! And good on Your Man for getting you another excellent gift. Gift-giving really is his super power.

Happy Belated Birthday! Awesome present from Your Man. Any Minions this year? Hope you had a wonderful and fun celebration! :D

Thanks guys! I love my new Paperwhite. LOVE IT! I now live in the land of having to convert files (which I always told myself I wouldn't do), but with Calibre that's pretty easy.

And for Phyl's information: Sadly, I did not have pie. I will likely get my junk food quotient filled at RWA next week though, so that's something to look forward to.

Alys: LOL! No minions! We did see Man Of Steel over the July 4 holiday - but haven't gotten to Despicable Me 2 yet. Maybe this weekend? Otherwise it will have to wait for when I'm back from RWA....

Happy belated birthday Wendy! Sorry I missed this post on the 9th.

Your man really knows how to go about these things. A Kindle Paperwhite! Yay! I adore mine too and don't go anywhere without it.
