lilacs

birthday and the Wire

My birthday was most pleasant and low key, all the nicer for people surprising me with stuff. tersa made me dinner for our TV night, yummy baked pasta. Though I managed to gash my thumb with her supremely sharp Haenkel bread knife. elspethdixon wrote me fic, tnalpgge, cyranocyrano, and katchoo_too took me out to dinner, and my dad carved me this gorgeous walnut piece that holds eight small pepper grinders, so I have something to put my grains of paradise in. Not to mention malabar, tellicherry, white... it's a pepper palette!
